#2177451 No Cantha in Guild Wars 2?

Posted Arioch on 11 March 2013 - 12:26 AM

I understand how East Asian countries might not like it, I can understand how it could be seen as offensive. It basically shows a disrespectful caricature. I still disagree with them not bringing out Factions because of it.

If such a decision was taken, it would not be out of respect for their mindset, cultural sensitivity, morality or anything like that, but economic and political factors. If people one day decided to not do such things out of respect and sensitivity, and have it done for all such cases I would agree with it quite a bit more.

Of course, I look at it from a different background. I see my own background warped into ugly caricature, misrepresented, threatened with death and shown in various  unpleasant ways in media from tv to books to games. I myself have to deal with threats against my person, discrimination, hateful slurs etc etc quite often. So while I can understand their position, I look at it from a different perspective.

tldnr: Humans should treat other humans with respect because they are human, not because of political or economic motives.

I must say though, Factions was beautiful, and so was Nightfall. If they don't do the former, perhaps they can do the latter. I doubt it if the Middle East or Africa will complain.

About the final rest...
The shadow behemoth event was bugged for a very very long time, for most servers it only worked once after a server update, then it bugged again.

That on top of the fact that drops from chest were terrible compared to now, I believe the part about it being very very rare.

Also, most people actually trying to get a Final Rest before thought it was at the zho qafa catacombs.

Also, Magic find doesn't affect chest drops.

how about you state some facts.....

I'm just laughing at the fact that this was written as though it has some intentions of being come Zeitgeist conspiracy theorist report, or ripped from Wikileaks. You're not uncovering anything that hasn't already been stated hundreds of times.

#2131625 News on the Gw2 extension i'm working on

Posted Minimal DJ on 30 December 2012 - 05:35 PM

Hello everyone, a while back i created a discussion with what the community wants as a tool outside the game, so I started studying my guildwars 2 behavior inside/outside the game. I noticed alot of times I would get in GW2 just to check the TP and then log out, so I started developpment for the ultimate Google Chrome/ firefox addons for the traders out there.

While I'm currently studying the API's better and how I can make a full featured addon for the community. And possibly use this project as my university developpement project for software engineering :)

Here is the backbone of my current project, I started out with Chrome addon first, since developping for chrome is much easier than firefox.

This addon is very simple for the pros in coding, and while it's simple, i found it being very useful, in one simple click I have access to TP from my browser.

Thought I include Install directions for the less Tech Savvy:

-Go to your Extensions directory in Chrome

-Drag the Chrome Extension.CRX to your Extensions page.

-Click the GW2 TP Icon, and start using.

It is quite simple addon for now, but I'm currently working on adding :
-Favorites tab, and notifications for buy/sell orders.

For the firefox addon, i'm still working on it, so bear with me !

Please leave your feedback as well as ideas.

I had heard something along the same lines, as to why Cantha wasn't going to happen. Although I never got an actual link or dev interview or anything, so I assumed it was just rumor. Hopefully it is just a rumor, it wouldn't make sense to leave such a huge part of the story hanging like that. Maybe they'll just make Cantha better off than Tyria - more reason for a beneficial dragon to reside there.
Sure it wasn't for the DR's Canthan district? Cuz that would make more sense than an entire continent and/or game expansion. Cutting it for favor of a portion of the demographic, that is.

And nah, no benevolent dragon. It'll be revealed that Kuunavang was the Six Gods' attempt at cloning Elder Dragons by infusing Forgotten DNA into the fetus - since the Forgotten had magic which couldn't be corrupted - thus creating a race of draconic supersoldiers, intended to protect the world against the Elder Dragons' rise. But shit hit the fan when the Jade Wind broke out.
