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

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

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?

In Topic: How do you trade?

The big reasons they left this out is because they want you to sell the item on the AH then buy the item you need on the AH since that way the system takes the AH fee and you can control inflation in this manner (ie Another gold sink).  Of course they also want to curb gold sellers as stated above.

I think if they add a CoD term which takes the same fee (%) as the AH that would be fine for mail trading.  If they allowed CoD with no fee similar to AH fee then people would just trade that way to avoid the AH fee for all large trades.  If they allow item to item trading like GW 1 then people would just get a currency such as Ectos to do trades in to again avoid the AH fees.
