Maybe that's what they consider fun. Sometimes when I play games, I like to do achievements. I've never been keen on "Find every treasure in the game" kind of achievements. I like the ones that make me play different like "Get 10 headshots in a row with a handgun" or "Take out 3 enemies with melee without being hit." Made Uncharted pretty fun.
In this game, they did make me try all the jumping puzzles and I realised some were actually quite fun. I'm not going to go out my way to get 1000 hammer kills but if one makes me explore a new aspect I've not seen before, I'm all for it.
the fact that people are picking cheaper WP's over abbadon is soo stupid we could be losing out on some of the greatest content this game has had! and for what some stupid reactor :/
Tell me you dont want to fight this!!!!!!
This in my opinion was one of the best fights in gw1 it was a difficult battle that felt very rewarding when completed!!!!!!!!!!!
First i wanna say there are many things that aren`t right in pve,but there are also many that are amazing,so this is not just another random bashing thread.
I played 500+ hours,and i played since relese.I`m also a GW1 player and a MMO player in general.What keeps me off is the very core of how loot sistem works.Game is extremely casual frendly and that is ok,but it isn`t ok not to have a pece of cake for hard core players.You can get the best rewards and max time spent/gold ratio without making any effort at all.There is no love for the players that are experienced,that invested time into learning and perfecting the optimal ways to do something.Anet idea of everyone doing everything sounded fine and dandy but in reality what gives you the most fun is learning how to do harder content that seems impossible at first.
Changes they made regarding world chests just make you wanna check the event timer websites,join the zerg and mindlessly rund around tag mobs spaming 1st button.Dungeons really aren`t worth repeting after you experience the content once.
Having the "high-end" drops is heavyly RNG based,like in other MMO`s BUT here you have same or bigger chance of getting a for example precursor while zerging world bosses then acctually finishing some challenging content.
In GW1 you had some easy farming spots (trolls,vaettirs..etc.) but for a chance to get very valuable drop you had to do UW,FoW,DoA ...etc or be very good in pvp.
What i`m saying is there should be some easy farming like cof p1 for example or orr events that anyone can do,and you should be able to get gold that way BUT doing harder stuff should give you more or at least have a high chance for awsome drops.
High level fractals are just too hard and time consuming compared to rewards you get for completing them.Farming daily on lvl 10 or 27 is what i see people do the most.Some dungeons that aren`t super easy are just a time waste.You get some tokens (around 40s worth) and lame drops for more then an hour effort.I did arah p4 with the guild and it was quite fun tbh but it took so much time and then we got random garbage blues from chest.
That is what i wannted to share with you guys and see what is your oppinion on this.This can be improved by the devs a lot so i thouth it a good subject to talk about.
So just answer me this, do you think that farming is an incorrect way to play the game?
I've read your posts, and it feels like you're being dense on purpose. troll-like even.
The point here is not the right or wrong way to play the game, the point is actually playing the game.
The event was broken, nothing should have everlasting mob spawns that allowed people to stand in place and press 1. thats poor game desing, and anets fault. However they corrected their mistake - not how they should imho- and the complaints have no reason if all they aim at is the right to stand in place and spam 1.
Anet sees this as not contributing to the game - and so do I and many others - and changed it so that the game becomes better by having people playing the game.
It has been said, if people want to farm, let them round up the mobs, have a bit of work to do and then collect the loot, no problem there.
I think comments like dontains are pretty great. The problem is when people start panning everything about the game and then others push back some, the people that defend aspects the game get lumped in with fanboys and supporters of NCsoft.
"I like the ranger and I think pets are in a good place"
"OMG you stupid NCSOFT FANBOI,. they need total redesign!!!! /RAGE"
People like Dontain know what you actually should complain about.
