In Topic: Black Lion Tickets

13 April 2014 - 04:19 AM

The black lion chests should be changed to a guarantee of one scrap minimum per chest, a chance at a full ticket being 1/10, and the raising of perm contracts to 1%. Along with this change with the April 15 update skins should be added to the chest, not items but skins such as a chance of any skin in the game including legendaries, but again only the skins not the stats.

Keys should be raised to a drop rate of 0.1% world drop rate from the low 0.001% that seems to be current. Along with this keys should be craftable from the professions requiring a good amount of mats to not make them a joke to craft while also making them valuable, along with this change they should be made tradable and sellable. A good rate for this might be 2-3 gold per key or whatever the current exchange is gems to gold for keys that cost in mats.

This to me would be a good starting point, and also setting up possibly the chests ability to contain any item off the gem store in varying percentage chances based on value.

Before release: Dyes will be account bound!
Near release: no wait we changed our mind
One year later: Ok, we'll give you what you paid for.
Fans: BEST GAMING COMPANY ON PLANET :wub: B) :D

Yah and we all know they hired some lousy people for the cash shop. I have to give actual kudos that Anet decided to go back and fix this mistake. And the wardrobe system is as far as I know first of its kind in a mmo (though I admit I could be mistaken having heard or seen anything like it.) on top of this your trying to take my post about the new grandmaster traits out of context for your irritation over dye changes which is amusing cause you obviously hated the old system and now that they changed it to what you feel appropriate you can't really complain but your going to give it the old collage try anyways.

And this is why I have faith in Arena Net. People try to marginlize them, show them as a company of incompetents and boobs, and then they show everyone why they are one of the best gaming companies on the planet.

In Topic: Will Arena Net just let Guild Wars 2 die?

You might as well ask if water will allow a fish to die. Like seriously what the hell. I thought it was just me but really GW2guru's conversations over the last few months have gone seriously off the rails into tin foil hat territory. Its starting to get slightly ridiculous, whats next, the Illuminati is manipulating gems, Aliens are probing players for pay to win, Anet's staff is actually lizard people bent on world domination. Like really.

In Topic: Thief (PC 2014): Worth playing?

18 March 2014 - 04:26 AM

To list any sort of bias that can be called out, I played the original 3 games of Thief. This one is a travesty compared to those and not cause of rose tinted glasses, but this new game walks almost totally away from everything that made the Thief games unique. One of the best examples I can really give is the fact that in the original games, you had a level, and there could be in some cases a hundred different paths you could go to finish it, it was literally like having a huge mansion and the main item your after is somewhere in this house, there were so many different ways you could go about finish it, in this version, its like being on a rail, with maybe a deviation here or there. It doesn't feel like an open world game, it feels like someone's holding my hand and taking me through a haunted house on a set path. The easiness of this compared to the original thief games is also one up to the user, selling packs that make the game more of a joke also seems in poor taste.

I don't want to spoiler too much, but setting the game as a reboot, while saying its 300-800 years in the future from the past games and then pissing on everything that people enjoyed from the original games is just a slap in the face to anyone that enjoyed the originals, Hammerties gone, Pagans gone, Taffers gone. There was nothing in the game that made me feel like I was playing thief and not generic Assassins creed rip off #32.
