#2190823 Shouldn't we be able to see enemy commanders?

Posted CalmLittleBuddy on 12 April 2013 - 12:51 PM

Am I missing something? I thought we could see them already? Least ways if you're observant you can. It doesn't need to be any easier than it already is. Personally, I think it should go the other way and not show at all via buff or status bar. You should have to figure it out by watching the interactions and memorizing the race.style.class when you figure it out. Commanders shouldn't be as obvious as they are.

Wow. Guru is now official forums? Cool. Less garbage to sift through.

Considering Sun Tzu a valid tactics guide for GW2 is like applying civil engineering concepts in a game of Sim City. It's overkill, AND the game engine was not written with Sun Tzu's concepts in mind. So, some of the ideas might actually be counter productive in GW2. But the main point is...

80 versus 80 digital personas fighting with little to no risk of death, injury or capture and no real world property and governmental consequences does not have the same GRAVITAS as real war. Therefore, the psychology of the warefare is completely different. The laws of physics are completely different. The formations, structures, units, weapons and warriors are not at all similar.

What you end up with then is cherry picking a handful of quotes that fit your playstyle or command style, NOT developing a command style based around the wisdom of The Art of War. When you pick the quotes to match the example, of course they will seem to apply. What about the other 90% that doesn't?

I can take Nostradamus and apply a few quotes to GW2, does than mean Nostradamus is a good guide to WvW in GW2?

EDIT: Folks may dislike Vihar's posts, but two things about him are true. He does not need hooked on phonics, and he does a better job commanding than most other commanders. If you're on JQ, you know this is a fact. You can argue with his posts, but if you try to knock his efforts as a commander, you're insane or ill informed.

Another megafight fun in T1 :

AoI guild alliance (OnS, DR, ATac) smashing against a crapton (legit unit of measurement) of JQ!

WvW without culling is outstandingly epic. This is the game I wanted to play for ages.

Props to the [SF] video above. I was in that fight ([ATac], Blackgate). Didn't really spot myself in the video, but I'm sure I died well somewhere in there.
