In Topic: New mouse?

Yesterday, 06:49 PM

Aye, I think even if they do restock, the shipping costs will probably mean I am back to the starting price. :)
Although, that did remind me to check out the SteelSeries mice I can get here and I can get Kana v2 for 50€ or Sensei RAW for 60€. Any views on these?

And cheers for your take on DeathAdder. ^^

The team working on this game is completely different from the GW1 devs and are taking the game into a new direction.

And that's actually part of the problem: not because the game would be different from GW1, but because, in its core, it's not that different. A.Net is implementing solutions that are in direct contradiction with the core of the game and it is making the game weaker. For instance, look at the issue of power. A.Net is currently using power as a reward of progression. The problem is that GW2, in its core, does not have an intriguing concept of power: gear is incredibly shallow, as are traits and skills, ... power wasn't designed to be something that keeps players interested. And as long as that core stays in the game, everything is going to be held back by these core rules.

Ultimately, that's the problem here: A.Net still does not understand their own game.

Short seasons mean there's potential for 3 seasons per year (4 seasons would mean no breaks and I doubt we'll see that). So if each season were to bring a new map (which is something I am fully expecting), that could mean 3 new maps per year.
Which would be pretty darn nice.

I mostly do the things that help me maximize my XP gain.
