#2030005 Halloween Skins from lottery / casino style grab bags

Posted Al Shamari on 19 October 2012 - 06:10 PM

Let's debunk some of these complaints shall we.

1) Can you get everything available to receive the Halloween skinned weapons without spending a single dollar? Yes.

2) Is increase of price (such as gems) natural during the time of a "special event", for example if Apple is about to launch a new product, will you see stock prices spike quickly in chances of a short term gain? Yes.

3) Did they state that the Halloween skinned items would be the only special event items available, or that there was only one way to earn these skins? Nope.

4) Are they giving you something eventful (Devil Horns) entirely free, no questions asked, just for accepting it? Yes.

5) Are Black Lion Chests suddenly a new item that you're going to have to grind for just for the sake of the event? No.

6) Are they throwing in something entirely extra into these Black Lion Chests that are already part of the game, solely for your enjoyment during the event? Yes.

7) Is it entirely possible that these "Acts" that are part of the event will also hold "valuable" rewards upon completion? Yes.

8) Is it entirely possible that these weapon skins will later be available for sale on the Trading Post? Yes.

9) Do you really have any room to complain? Not really.

10) Are you complaining simply for the sake of complaining, for the sole reason that this game - that you don't pay a monthly fee for, that (chances are) you've already got your money's worth out of simply due to the hours you've already paid versus a console game you wouldn't have paid a cent less for, didn't live up to your standards set by your extreme case of gamer entitlement syndrome? Yes.

#1846947 Zhaitan is down (by [love]) ! SPOILER ALERT !

I find it funny that so many people hate on him in this thread. It's funny seeing how upset they get because this guy doesn't play the game they way they think it's supposed to be played. This is still an MMORPG, it doesn't matter how much you despise WoW. This game is competetive. PvP, WvWvW, PvE, gear hunt, clearing content first and so on. Of course people will strive to be the best. It's just sad seeing fellow gamers hating on someone else. This person probably had a lot of fun doing this. And then you tell him that he sucks? I feel sorry for all the people praising this community for its maturity, and then people like you come along and who the exact opposite.

Tell me, just one more time, what exactly is so inherently wrong with what he did that it required you to come into this thread, use your own time you could've spent doing something else, and spread hate in this thread?

#1838734 The game feels repetitive somehow...

Posted Red_Falcon on 29 August 2012 - 04:21 AM

Because you play the game in a repetitive way.

Did you discover the hidden Drake race yet?

Did you get youself a chocobo?

Did you smell the breath of a Wurm?

Posted Image

Or again, did you go fully invisible on a Guardian?

You new generations are getting 100x higher quality games and can't appreciate anything of them.
You just get in, do repetitive tasks (even in a game that rewards variation and has very little repetition), and then come here and complain the game sucks.

Try turning off the tunnel vision on that exp bar and enjoy Tyria.

#1831482 The great big "Oh dear I got banned" thread

- Ease up on the bans, like WoW.
This isn't Warcraft, this is GuildWars II, and ArenaNet will not stoop to the sugar coating that Warcraft has.

If you want Warcraft rules go play Warcraft and make a name called Ijustsleptwithyourmother, but you won't get away with it here it seems.

xColourTheory said:

- The names, ease up on those too.
They don't have to bend for noone, it's plain as day what kind of name they want you and others to make, It's simple even my 5 year old son could make a name that is mature, I mean really.

xColourTheory said:

  - Acknowledge the fact that the blocks  have been made, and APOLOGIZE, for them.
They don't need to apologize for making rules and people breaking them, just like a judge don't need to apologize for condemning a felon to jail.

Break the rules pay the fine, and learn the lesson.

What's with this barrage of people that have purposely chosen intentionally provocative/borderline offensive names and then start complaining when they get a 72 hour ban for it? If you didn't see that coming then there's little hope for you.

#1763838 The Eye of Arenanet

This is my theory.

First comes the picture of the eye.


If you take a closer look at the reflection on the left side of the eye you will notice that it doesn't fade as well as the other elements of the picture.

What you may also notice is that the reflection resembles a part of a Lion's head.
This brought me to Lion's Arch, from there I looked at the next two photos, both show Eir underwater.


In Lion's Arch there is a big body of water and a diving board(which I think will be shown in the possible upcoming cinematic). The third picture shows Eir beside the eye of what appears to be "Bubbles", she is holding a weapon in her hand.

I think that Eir went to Lion's Arch to hunt a creature, stumbled upon the dragon, then began to quickly swim back to the surface after dropping her weapon.
The eye is litterally just reflecting a room. The big white square is a window.

#1726458 Lets all get mounted!

Posted Teste on 13 August 2012 - 06:22 PM

1) The Suggestions forum is over there.

2) There are a lot of topics about mounts.

3) The consensus is that mounts are ridiculous.

4) This is not WoW. Mounts, raids and other WoW conventions don't really have a place here.

#1688873 Paying gold to reset traits = grinding lameness

Posted UssjTrunks on 07 August 2012 - 03:49 AM

I totally agree. You should be able to change your build on the fly and at no cost, just like in PvP. Not every situation is right for every build, especially in PvE. In some places you might need to spec for toughness and control, while in others you may be more effective in a support role or a DPS role. All this does is stifle build diversity.

#1650360 List of things that break the clone decoy mechanism

Posted Crowley on 29 July 2012 - 12:24 PM

You can still do team calls. It is still completely possible. But you won't have a nobrainer tunnelvision mark to focus on. You actually have to pick out the correct target. Sorry if you consider that an unfair advantage but it's kind of a funny function of the game actually. And Mesmers aren't untargetable at all. You simply lose target when they employ their clones, which is completely intended.

#1625868 Asura armor skin inequality

Honestly, I think I'm just arguing the point because I'd prefer some kind of difference between male and female armor on Charr and Asura.

Whereas I'd prefer that Human, Norn, and Sylvari armors were all the same for females and males, or as close as possible anyway. Kingdoms of Amalur managed to do it. The Sylvari in-game lore even supports that this should be the case. The only reason it isn't is fanservice.


it just doesn't make sense that males and females would have the exact same clothing preferences.

There's a thing called "gender roles", and you may want to reflect on your slavish devotion to enforcing them. Charr and Asura are not human, and they thankfully are dismissive of the idea that their genders need to be clothing-coded for your comfort. If only it was like that in real life.
