In Topic: Why a linear leveling curve is actually worse than an exponential one

27 November 2012 - 07:38 PM

Not to be picky but what you call an "exponential curve" looks like a curve of log(x).

Don't report the user, it explicitly states box of DRACONIC armor, this is Anet at fault. it's a premade item, you can't pack anything into it despite it being a box, it's crafted with the materials for a set of Draconic Armor, it's a bug.
Was the Chilli Pepper exploit Anets fault?

But this is an mmorpg. It's not chess. chess is an "absolute skill" symmetrical tester, the only difference between the two is who makes the first move. Even fighting games pale in skill comparison to chess, not to mention mmos with 8 classes and a few different builds for each, it's an asymmetrical balance in GW2.

So in football you can choose a formation, a playstyle and different players with different skill sets.

It is just about having fair competitive matches.

Why did BW last so long as one of the most popular E-sport.

Exactly in chess you don't get more pieces if your a grandmaster, just a title.

I don't know, I liked rewards that gave you stats. I mean I don't really understand why everybody are against it and GW2 is like "no, skill! skill!" honestly some of the "freedom" ideas gw2 has is like an instant 80 wow pvp server, which we know isn't as fun as global. I liked wow pvp. Some ppl you could smash, others were a challenge. You can't smash ppl in GW2. I liked the variety.

First of all you said an absolute for something which varies for every person, then you assumed peoples taste matches yours, I personally detest open world PvP.

.... I call my particular technique "AFK farming" where I will be systematically farming mobs for hours on end, while doing whatever else I may be doing at the time...

Took a snip of your post, what is AFK farming?  And how do you farm while doing something else with out botting?
