#2204416 Dare to Criticize Guild Wars 2

Posted Kaaboose on 21 May 2013 - 10:39 AM

I'm probably going to get shot down for sharing this but:

The guy is more direct then I'd ever be in my videos but it really makes me feel better knowing there's somone out there genuinly invested in GW2 and is not afraid to show his rage at being let down by the promises that were made to us prior to this games release.
Just to set the record straight I don't agree on the endgame grind mentality of other MMO's as he does.
However I agree hand down there NEEDS to be some challening content put into this game.

#1583042 Gold Sinks and TIME SINKS, keep one kill the other

Posted Timid on 08 July 2012 - 07:21 PM

View PostParonine, on 08 July 2012 - 06:58 PM, said:

I hate being the negative nancy on this one, but to me the armor vendor issue is a matter of "creating inconvenience to sell convenience." Armor repair kits are sold in the gem shop, so to make armor vendors easily accessible defeats the purpose of them.  While I do wish they were less of a time sink to go visit, their placement serves a purpose toward ANet's bottom line.

Not everything has to do with the cash shop, although this is a widely spread and largely unsubstaniated theory. ANet does not have to create mechanics to compel you to use the cash shop, because if you enjoy the game enough, you will. The problem with a lot of conspiracy theories is that they purposely dismiss or ignore evidence in order to create mystery and the apperance of subterfuge.

We know, with some degree of certainty, why the armor repair mechanic exists. Simply put: it is a penalty for repeated deaths that forces players to recognize when content may be beond their current skill level. Death penalty may have been rejected since it makes each successive attempt more difficult, whereas the current systm gives you a fixed amount of deaths before you are compelled to leave the area. It is a way of saying, "Maybe you should try a different zone or a different strategy, because what you're doing isn't working."


#472847 Dynamic Events - Guild Wars 2 Webcomic

Posted Doctor Overlord on 27 September 2010 - 06:20 AM

*****Updates Early Monday/late Sunday (I hope!) ******

Now most comics will be listed as direct links to allow faster loading.

Ones with longer comments will still be behind the 'Spoiler' tags.

Click the Yellow 'Resize' bar above each comic to see it full size


I decided that I'd give a shot at doing a GW2 web-comic.   I can hardly match some of the excellent examples of fan artwork seen here in the Library so don't expect much.  But I've been having fun coming up with characters and ideas.  

It's meant to be a comedy so please excuse any fourth-wall breakages or lore deviations that are taken in favor of a cheap laugh :)

The Cast

Theodore 'Theo' Thackery - A young man who just moved to Lion's Arch.   He has a family name that makes many jump to incorrect conclusions.   He's somewhat naive when it comes to non-human races.   He'll have much to learn in order to adjust to his new home.

His profession has not yet been revealed.  

Elisa 'Ellie' Thackery -  Theo's sister.  An elementalist who has been living in Lion's Arch for some time and thus she is more cosmopolitan than her brother.   Like many siblings, they may argue and fight but they really do care for each other.  

Almme (Alm-may) Bloodfeaster - A female charr ranger who has moved to Lion's Arch for her own reasons.   Theo does not realize her gender at first.  

Eddard, born of the Cycle of Night - A sylvari eager to add the experience of being a roommate to his race's shared knowledge.  

Mawfang Bloodclaw - A human-hating charr and Almme's rather protective, future life-mate.

Toll - An asura who seldom leaves his room because his research has made a sinister discovery.

Hilda - A norn.   Norn have no need for intros.  

It should be mentioned that she has more than caught Theo's attention.  

Stingy - Almme's pet devourer.   Deeply loyal to his mistress and always looking for entertaining things to do.  

S.M.A.R.T.I.E. - A golem created by Toll called the Synthetic Mental Autonomous Reaction Talisman Intelligence Experiment.   (Has a voice rather like GLaDOS from Portal).  

Gurggle - The boarding house's hylek handyman/manager.

I have an page on Deviant Art with some additional stuff but it's mostly the comics that are here on GW2Guru.   Still feel free to visit and leave a comment there!

#1506387 How to fix the tiered traits mess

Posted Garnatian on 10 June 2012 - 01:38 PM

As it is now is better. Makes the game easier to balance and makes putting 30 points into a particular trait actually useful.


#1512866 Elites are Underpowered!

Posted Alaroxr on 12 June 2012 - 05:46 PM

....

You think Renewed Focus... is a good Elite Skill?

Let me get this straight. Becoming invulnerable FOR ONLY 3 SECONDS, while LOCKED IN PLACE on a 180 SECOND COOLDOWN is WORSE than BECOMING A TORNADO FOR 15 SECONDS?

#1495344 Mystic forge thoughts?

Posted Colin Johanson on 05 June 2012 - 07:51 PM

View PostGilles VI, on 05 June 2012 - 02:45 PM, said:

Yep I hope the cash shop item is not a must-have item but more like a critical-chance booster.

You never need to use the mystic forge Black Lion Trading company (gem store) item, nope! You can just throw your extra items in the Mystic Forge and try and get lucky and get something better in return. Think of it almost like a bonus crafting profession of awesome, that everyone gets and can use in Lion's Arch.

I'd suggest you try it out this weekend, it's pretty fun :)

Look forward to seeing you all in game in just a few short days!


#1465645 Possible trait tiers? (Rumor mill)

Posted Volkon on 22 May 2012 - 05:59 PM

Of course, there is another option where tiers, if implemented to traits, would actually make things a lot more interesting. Imagine if it's not the access to the traits that's tiered, but the trait slots themselves. Say, for example, a certain trait extends cloaking for three seconds. Imagine tiering it such that for the 10 slot it extends it 2.5 seconds, the 20 slot for 3 second and the 30 slot for 3.5 seconds. Imagine a trait that increases healing power by 50% in the 10 slot increases it by 40%, in the 20 slot increases it by 50% and in the 30 slot increases it by 60%.

With this approach, it becomes not just a factor of which traits you pick to customize yourself, but also where you put them to enhance that customization further.

This... this idea I'd be freakin' giddy over. This would be an amazing enhancement to the system! (My opinion, of course...)

I don't know how regularly I'll be able to do these comics but I'll post them as soon as I complete them.  
Please post any feedback if you like it.  And ignore them if you don't :)

Many thanks to Konig Des Todes for copying my original post so I put the comics all on the first page!

Wow, has it really been a year of doing this comic?   How time flies!  

Thank you to all the regular readers of the comic and everyone who has posted kind comments regarding it!     The reaction Dynamic Events has gotten has made me very glad that I decided to start it a year ago.  You folks are the reason I've been able to keep doing it for this long.

There is a one-year anniversary surprise in the works, but in the meantime here is this week's comic.

This won't be the normal rate for updates on these comics I regret to say. I just needed to get this done before next Tuesday and the Living Story update. I won't have time this weekend so I did the grind to get it out *grin*

And I know the analogy to those Mastercard commercials is not correct, but it's Toll podcast and he doesn't know any better.

#1469450 Guild Wars 2 Fatal Flaw

Posted Noxdus on 24 May 2012 - 01:58 PM

The entire OP seems to come entirely from a third person perspective, from someone who hasn't even played the game yet. MUCH of the OP is also full of false "facts" and they have apparently not done much research at all. Please actually do some reaearch and actually  play the game before making such large accusations.

1. GW2 has more PvE content than PvP content by far. (as we have been allowed to see up to this point)

2. You seem to think PvE alone is a small part of the content. This is clearly a blind statement made by someone who hasn't played the game.

3. WvW is not secondary at all, you can level entirely from level 2 to 80 and earn appropriate gear for your level without ever leaving WvW. This is NOT a secondary system.

View PostSidhardha, on 24 May 2012 - 01:56 PM, said:

If you dont see what the issues are about - pick just about any topic on those forums discussion game play mechanics or suggestions and see how people cant agree on anything since they view it from different positions.

There are 5 deviding factors atm, and each thinks game is designed for him:
- SPVP, WvW, PvE, Casual, Hardcore

Combine them in whatever combination you like and see how your perspective on different issues changes entirely. I`ll give you one noticeable example - people that want casual friendly WvW vs people that came in GW2 for WvW only
Have you ever even read any other game forums before? People argue about every little feature on every MMORPG's forums. This happens in all games. To say otherwise is pure ignorance.


#1469427 Guild Wars 2 Fatal Flaw

Posted Skyy High on 24 May 2012 - 01:47 PM

How about a decent example of how PvP has negatively affected PvE balance, eh? Particularly since, you know, we're still not at "release balance" yet; they're still changing traits and skills with every new build.

This is ridiculous. PvP players are claiming that GW2 focuses too much on PvE, now apparently some PvE players think it focuses too much on PvE...how about everyone just enjoys the game mode that they want to play, and shut up about the other two, deal? I'm planning on playing all three, but since that doesn't even seem to occur to some people, you'll need to compromise.

GW1's PvE was limited, and it still managed to hold people's attention for hundreds (or thousands) of hours. GW2's PvE is so much bigger and more grandiose, it absolutely boggles my mind that you can claim that it's being limited by PvP.

Oh, last thing: GW1 had skill splits between PvE and PvP. They've already said that they're willing to do that again in GW2 if it becomes necessary (and they already have done that, by barring racials from PvP). Stop complaining about something that literally is not an issue yet, and likely will never become one.
