#2313096 What GW2 does right

I guess they do April Fools.... Nah. This isn't a valid April Fools.


#2286180 How seriously do you take GW2?

I take it as seriously as Anet takes criticism.


#2251505 Guesting and overflows

Posted Minion on 28 October 2013 - 10:46 PM

I play on Desolation. I'm in Europe, but tend to be online for approx 16~ hours a day, so I see everything. When you play around the clock (not everyday, I'm not mad) you see how the community works as a whole, and, well, it just doesn't at the moment.

The problem is how overflows work. Since Tequatl, Desolation has made a name for itself as Europe's go-to server for Tequatl kills. Every day/night we have a full Sparkfly. Full of guests. Full of non-Desolationians. This is a serious problem, not just for those who *don't* guest and sit in empty servers trying to kill Tequatl on their native server, but an even bigger problem for the natives of Desolation thrown into the overflow turmoil.

I like guesting. Guesting is great, in fact. I can play open-world content with friends too stubborn to join my server full-time. It's not perfect, since I still can't communicate with US servers, but it serves it's purpose. However, the ease of guesting means a lack of server pride and loyalty. If another server makes a name for itself as the go-to server for zerg champ farming Frostgorge and Cursed Shore, then the people will flock there. Other servers become barren while this focused server stacks up on overflows, leaving the natives to scratch their heads.

What I'm proposing, to fix the issue of server loyalty, is to bump natives to the top of the overflow queue if they happen to be in one. If a native friend is already in the main instance, their other native friend can be taxied in. This is fair, and by no means difficult to implement.

Just to counter the inevitable:
1. This will not kill off champ farming or zergs; there will most likely be more servers able to champ farm on a slightly smaller scale.

2. It is not unreasonable to make a guest wait longer than a native. Consider it a quarantine period.

She looks like some kind of aquatic goddess indeed! The color combination is really nice. :D

Just got my Ele to 80 yesterday, this is her look so far. I still need to find fitting gloves and perhaps another headpiece.

#2230106 Robert Hrouda Leaves ArenaNet

Posted El Duderino on 30 August 2013 - 07:07 PM

I don't really follow the developer stuff too closely as to who is who and who does what, but according to the official forums, it appears he was one of the few developers (if not the last one) that actually had a good two way communication with the players.

Regardless of why he was laid off, or whether people liked his dungeons or not, I think it is a shame that someone who interacted well with the players is no longer with the company.

Confirmed by Mark on the GW2 Forums.

[...] It is true, Rob is no longer with us, and we wish him all the best for his future endeavors. And that is all that needs to be said, the personal life of existing or former employees does not belong here.
.

Robert Hrouda left a message on his Facebook page.



Robert Hrouda was one of the dungeon designers for the game, his official job description was Content Designer.

He was apparently laid off.

Sounds like he spoke up to leadership about things he didnt like or gave feedback they didnt like so they canned him for it.

Even the people making the game are saying the same thing the players have been.....
