In Topic: The New Leveling

17 September 2014 - 09:30 AM

I tried out Divinity: Original Sin and I am thinking of making that my main game leaving GW2 behind.

The combat in Divinity is complex, the customization is vast bordering insane, the story and the quests are immersive and fun, ranging from being wingman for a cat in love to saving time and space, and the overall game is hard as fog. I thought I liked the way GW2 handled these things, but playing GW2 right now feels like being treated as an infant, where as Divinity doesn't give a damn if I can't figure out stuff. And that makes it so so so rewarding to finally solve that puzzle or take down that guard at the lighthouse.

This has little to do with the new patch, I just found a game where my actions matter.

In Topic: Thoughts on the September Feature Pack?

12 September 2014 - 07:53 AM

I created a toon yesterday to try out the changes and I actually like it so far. Yes, stuff is gated at the lower levels and you are led through the first hours of gameplay and that is a good thing (imho). Instead of getting everything thrown at you from the beginning, it is introduced within the first hours at a steady pace.

When I first saw that the 4th skill was locked until level 7 I was like 'wut!', but I got there within an hour and the experience up to that point just felt like a tutorial. Being led to the scouts and introduced to hearts felt like a good way to showcase an area, and that is said by a man who have disliked the scouts till now. Of course Collections are just a way to stretch content that is already there, but they have renewed my interest in finding the small bits in the game.

I think some of the forumites who rage on the patch have not tried it out themselves. I had access to both dyes and the wardrobe from the beginning, and things being gated may look bad on paper, but it seems like an okay solution in reality.

In Topic: to the ones who can make image adjustments

You can convert it with http://image.online-.../convert-to-jpg

If that does not do the trick I will be happy to convert it for you.

Very cool, I was rather baffled when the vine grabbed the soldier and the asura was smashed. I hope for a more evil plot, not being quite as cartoonish as it has been up till now.

In Topic: Would you pay?

17 June 2014 - 07:18 AM

I have had the same thought, and a small part of me would actually like to pay a subscription fee. As of now I do want to support the game, but there is next to nothing in the shop that I want.

With that said, I would like to pay a subscription if all the microtransactions would be gone. 10$ a month for free waypoint, wardrobe changes, gathering, access to content and so on would be a very fine trade in my book. I know some of these things can be acquired through the shop, but I just want these things to be there, contrary to them being a limited ressource that I have to renew now and then.
