#1978238 GW2: 1-80 Dynamic Events (mostly)

Posted Shrimps on 29 September 2012 - 01:50 AM

For all you people that want to speed their way to 80 on their alts.




Written Guide:

I created this guide because after getting my main to 80, I wanted to "powerlevel" my alts to 80. I looked around for a guide, but found none. There was some research done and trial and error, and I've decided to share this guide with you guys. There are obviously faster ways to level, but this guide doesn’t really incorporate crafting. I’m trying to show you a good way to take advantage of these dynamic event chains to level up fairly quickly.

15-35:

For those having trouble getting ANY type of medal:

70-80:

HELP! The Lone Post gate is blocked!

But what about 60-70?
Spoiler

Good luck getting to 80!

he obviously knows what it means. Durk used in the same context as terrorist is racist pure and simple, noone is that naive.

I will assume you were refering to Durk as a spinoff of dark, as "durk" itself means nothing.

Yup, Dark is an offensive word, lets scratch it from the dictionary, oh why stop, lets erase darkness as well, lets not just stop yet, lets go on with darkling, darkle, darkey, darken, darksome, darkish. Funny how all of those words above describe everything else BUT the black man. Only word that does, is darky and is slang.
Oh, but we need to ensure equality for all, what is opposite of dark? Light?
Well, lets wipe those words from the face of the Eearth as well. Light, lightning, lightening, lighter, lighten, lighter, lighterage, lighterman, lighthouse, lightish, lightless, lightly, lightness, lights, lightship,lightsome, lightsomeness, lightweight, lightwood, all of them.

Every damn word above connected with root dark has so much meanings and NOT ONE is connected with black people. They mean from, color black (in no context what so ever with any kind of race), night, lack of light, sundown, tanned all the way to gloomy, melancholic, sad and foggy.

I'd recomend reading George Orwell's 1984 (actual title of the book). You might have a glimps of what happens when you start limiting your vocabulary.
The first paragraph was a humorous atempt at demonstrating where this word hunt leads.

So, we are left with the word Terorrist. This is by no means offensive word, it just describes the person. Terorrism was at start philosophical insult for people withuot imagination. Those who worked under Robespierre after french revolution and people started losing heads one by another. Word terrorist comes from "Rule of Terror", as this was how Robespierre ruled the France. First form of terorrism was a state terorism.

Now, take a look what you are doing in Guild Wars 2 most of the time. You are killing your enemies. Enemies, whom your state proclaimed enemies, and you do it in the name of Queen, Tribune or White Tree and so on. From the perspective of those centaurs, trolls, krait and all other races that you just happen to slaughter on every step, you are a terorrist.

I wonder, will you get banned if you name your character Crusader, or Skeptic or Black Cat. Or here is a controversial one (dor some people), naming your character after a shrine in ancient Rome called "Lapis Niger".
It means black stone, and honestly, if ANet can name characters with latin names, why shouldn't we? Because some idiot doesn't understand the meaning?
It is nice to have naming policy, but this looks more like comunist regime than anything else. And that coming from me, who always try to come up with appropriate fantasy/medival names.

Games are supposed to be fun, not cotton envelopes protectiong you from all the bad things in the world. It is one thing to be politicly correct and another one to be limited on account that someone might be offended because of his/her lack of literacy.


#1621295 Typical pest - Foreign languages on international servers

Posted TheGizzy on 23 July 2012 - 07:59 AM

I'm an American and my native language is English.  I understand some Spanish (more if spoken slowly), can speak it with a horrific accent and can read/write it well enough to get by in a conversation.  I can read Hungarian & Czech quite well, understand them fairly well, and speak them both passably if pressed.  I can understand most slowly spoken Russian, but don't ask me to speak or read or write.  And I've a smattering of understanding of written German.

So with that said, it's always best for me if people speak/write English and if I can do the same.  However...

...this is an international MMO with very few language-dedicated servers, but it attracts players from all over the globe.  I can easily have an English-only experience, even in map chat, by simply clicking "block" on anyone who isn't typing in English.

Problem.  Solved.

I don't need ANet or anyone else to be a language nanny for me.  I wear my big girl pants when I game and I understand that the planet doesn't revolve around me and my language abilities or inabilities.  I don't have a right to cut someone else off from part of the game just because I'm personally inconvenienced by seeing text in a language I don't understand because I have the ability to 100% dictate what language I see in front of me.

Block is your friend.

I personally don't care if there are 20 other languages being typed in map chat... only people I felt compelled to ignore this entire weekend were some morons in the Asura starting area who thought it was funny to crack "jokes" about the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado.  Otherwise?  Not a problem for me.

Please wear your big boy/girl panties and use the "block" feature provided... then you can have a 100% English-only map chat experience without telling other players that they can't join you in the public sandbox.
