wow. . .i had no idea. . . thank you for the heads up

I wouldn't necessarily go by what people are saying here... the smart move would be to check them out for yourself and make your own judgement.

I've had zero trouble with the official forums... though I'm not posting on either forum very often (too busy playing, usually).  People complaining about over-moderation aren't giving a complete picture... ANet isn't arbitrarily deleting/locking threads that are critical of the game... they're deleting/locking threads that violate the TOS.  Plenty of people have been able to write very critical, and constructive posts about the issues they have with the game or with decisions ANet has made for the game.  They just manage to do it without also devolving into doing stupid things like referring to the ANet staff as incompetent, idiots, morons, thieves, scammers, liars, etc.

People who can't keep a civil tongue and present their point without resorting to attacks on the company and staff, they find their threads being poofed.  As they should.

People who just want to whine and get a bunch of people to agree with them find their threads poofed.  As they should.

People who just want to spout wild conspiracy theories and rants find their threads poofed.  As they should.

Everyone else seems to manage posting without sanctions just fine.

I'll never understand the part of the human brain (I must be lacking it) that tells people that it'd be cool or funny to try and use such names; it never ends well for them.

#1798348 Eir - Just how strong is this woman?! *EoD spoilers*

Posted Vejuz on 23 August 2012 - 05:47 PM

Eir doesn't lift statues, she pushes Tyria away from them.

The only known form of space travel in Tyria is being thrown by Eir.

Eir doesn't invoke the Bear spirit, the Bear spirit invokes Eir.

Eir cuts diamonds with her fingernails.

Eir doesn't carve stone, she glares at it until it breaks.

I have been to many games stores, and big retailers like MediaMarkt, Saturn, Fnac, Worten, RP.

I have never heard of these retailers...

Guild Wars 2 is really like the opposite of Blizzards Diablo 3... No advertisement and extremely good quality while Diablo 3 has Extremely good advertisement and no quality.

#1745344 GW2's story: Really weak.

In fairness, how many minutes to we spend looking at the name your character bit in character creation, I have wasted countless minutes of  my life and still I end up with the cheese factor names.

Lets look at it from another perspective. Look at some if the popular books of today Twilight (horrifying) Bella Swann and Edward Cullen, other characters like Renesmee and all that utter rubbish. Fifty Shades of Grey (my mother owns it, never been more ashamed in my life) Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

Final Fantasy names- Cloud, Squall, Tifa, Barret, Vincent Valentine (loved the character but lets face it, kinda cheesy name to go with his dark, romantic character)

Sure some of the in gw2 and gw1 can be called cheesy but at least they keep culture in mind when making names. Rytlock Brimstone sounds exactly like an elite boss you find among the charr. Eir Stegalkin, very old norse sounding, infact Eir is the name in old norse is the form of a goddess/ valkyrie.

I think it is a bit early to be criticising the story cause you don't really know much about it, plus eventually you will need to take story progression into account through expansions and so on, before having a clear perspective of it.

#1690754 What happened to the other classes from GW1?

Some time after all the great evils threatening the world of Tyria were stopped the former fighter and heros didn't have much to do anymore. Many of them went on with their lives but others had to endure a much harder fate.

The Assassin continued their dungeon SCs and many of them soon died from heart attacks while others were taken to mental hospitals because of the constant hits they had to endure. Those who haven't died yet now live (happily) in the locked ward of the Sardelac Sanitarium.

After all the great fights were over, the mortality rate of the people and creatues of Tyria significantly decreased. So the Ritualisrs ran out of Spirtis to summon from the netherworld. Most ritualists are now either unemployed or had to find other professions to make a living.

The Dervishes couldn't manage to stop spinning after the last battle has ended. They all vanished after they couldn't find anymore dervish recruits because people had seen too many dervished vomiting to death due to the endless spinning. Some are said to have spinned so fast that they took off, they are now drifting in space where their "skirts" reflect some of the sunbeams. This might have led to an age of darkness in Tyria but one day it might prevent some of the global warming caused by the heavy Charr industry.

Paragons were happy to see that many other professions became as useless as they always were (I apologize to all the Paragon players, I'm exaggerating ofc). They all went back to Vabbi where they make parties 24/7.

The monks were so fed up with the constant nagging and the aggression from W/Mo/Mending noobs that they went into exile in the former Asura caves. There they lived happily for many years creating a new profession of awesomness which is today known as the Guardian.
