In Topic: Ascended Weapons.. will you craft one?

31 August 2013 - 11:27 AM

In the manifesto they promised us that there would be no gear threadmill, but that just like in GW1 you would work for the looks only.
Meaning the best tier gear ( Exotic ) would stay best tier gear.
Then ascended came along, meaning that once again they broke their word to the player community.
Ascended is superior to exotic statwise, thus qualifies as a gear threadmill.
People that continue to say that the stat difference is minimal and that ascended is optional are missing the point entirely.
You can do pretty much all content in this game in rare or even masterwork.
Still, exotic is superior in stats over those.

These weapons seem to represent the worst of Anet's decisions combined to me.
Loads of random materials, weapons unable to be bought from the TP, new material threadmill with T7 mats, timegated...
If anything one would expect a higher chance for Ascended items to drop from high level fractals, but even that they did not implement, while fractals and Ascended equipment pretty much belong together in essence.
Anet is making this game lose its uniqueness and is making it more and more like your average uninteresting MMO nextdoor.

As such, I will not craft Ascended weaponry, even while I have all currently ingame available materials to do so.
Because to me this is still a betrayal to the community, and I am unwilling to support that by participating in this new threadmill of them.
Do not forget that in an interview someone from Anet ( I believe it was Colin ) said we would definitely not see a new tier this year.

So how do I not know that when I grind my brains out to deck out every character in Ascended, we will suddenly get an even better/higher stat armor/weapon/jewelry tier, simply because Anet feels like it?

I do not trust Arenanet at all anymore, and that is what keeps me from crafting Ascended.
There is a gear threadmill, and they will continue down that path.

In Topic: So now that's it's out, what are people's opinions of Bazaar of t...

At first I found it to be kinda meh.
Then I got a good grip on those elemental movement skills and thought: This is pretty cool!
Especially considering the lessons of the sky achievement ( 40 crystals ) you will have to get to some crystals that are in very hard to reach places.
Normally I dislike jumping puzzles, but I loved it in this form, made me think of the good old platformer days of Mario and Rayman.
The scenery and music itself are also beautiful, and the vertical way the new map is built was great.
But now that I have all achievements, my personal node and backpiece I find myself wondering what else there is to do besides admiring the scenery.
All that is left is the race, and, awesome as that is, even that gets boring if you repeat it time after time.
Considering that the bazaar is here for 4 weeks, I am wondering if there will be any additional content added in the form of story and/or quests/events/you name it.

In Topic: Dragon Ball, where did you go wrong.

consumables screw it, and basically the one who attacks first wins.

In Topic: Dragon Bash Festival Thread!

Dragonbash has a gamebreaking bug.
Consumables work.
So take a "gain health every second" food and you cannot die.
Serious problem..

When you run GW2, make sure the awesomium process is not stopped or blocked by a firewall.
That is the program that is responsible for the TP.
Despite some services still working for you it might be worth a shot to check it out.
