#2276687 Guild Wars 2 Project 365

Posted Neo Nugget on 02 January 2014 - 08:05 PM

Over the course 2013 I've been following a few ambitious individuals on Twitter who took part in the Project 365 challenge, posting one image per day to a public album for a whole year. I've always played around with the idea of doing one myself, but it wasn't until yesterday that I decided to dive in and take it a step further with Guild Wars 2. A few people have already decided to follow suit on Twitter, so I figure it would be fun to get things started over here as well. All you have to do is head over to the gallery, click on the red UPLOAD button near the top, and create a new album (Or if you prefer feel free to link an external album, it really makes no difference to me).

You can post as often or as little in this thread as you like, just remember to link your album so I can add it to this post as the year goes on. I'll also be tweeting different screenshots and albums from this thread on Guru's Twitter account at least once per day.

I started mine yesterday, but it's definitely not too late to start!

#2203862 Location Hunt

Posted Themon on 20 May 2013 - 07:02 AM

Hello there, community!

I have a game for you. It's sort of a scavanger hunt, but with locations.

The idea is the following:
We post screenshots taken anywhere in the open world, one at a time, and the rest of us playing have to find out where it was taken.
Whoever finds the place first should post another screenshot of it, tell us where it is and, to keep the game rolling, give us a new place to find as well.

Are you interested?

To give it a test run, here is the first location you have to find:

Your post should contain your screenshot and the location it was taken at (even if the minimap is visible in the image).

Have fun.

(Post updated to reflect the current state of this game.)

Lets see how many Twilight's we can get.

Hopefully lots. There's a reason you see so many, because it looks awesome.


#2185183 just wondering if i could get banned for doing this? i don't think i will...

Posted Kurosov on 28 March 2013 - 02:55 PM

You won't be banned for it.

But hopefully this post will serve as a warning for other guilds not to recruit you.

Doesn't matter if they were "mean" or "insensitive". You chose to join a guild with childish people and as a so called co-leader it should have been your responsibility to make sure that never happened in the first place, yet instead you decided to steal money and do a runner instead of even leaving with dignity.

If you volunteered at a non profit organisation and even donated some of your own money then decided to run off with cash from the organisation because other people were being mean to you, that is theft and you would face the appropriate punishment.

They might not have been the best guild members, but with such an action neither are you.


#2160584 Legendary Weapon - I can't decide if I really want one. Do you?

Posted Auenwing on 08 February 2013 - 05:46 AM

Sadly, I got an in-game mail from a gold seller today with a list of legendaries they had for sell. They claimed they were the sole agent for the best equipment in game.

Yes, I reported it immediately.


ANet, you may want to consider making legendaries account bound. Not necessarily retroactively, but any new ones as of a certain date.

Just saying.

#2145743 Promote New Guild Leader

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that we drained all the influence and layed down all the queued banners before we left.  One last FU to him.  That may have been immature for 40 year olds to do, but it felt great.

#2135261 How my Ban for Snowflake is different and unjustified!

Posted Omilla on 04 January 2013 - 03:57 PM

Everyone who got banned for this exploit will file in here over the next few days and try to tell us how they weren't trying to exploit and they only wanted to fix the economy.  Or end world hunger.  I have read several of these posts and many seem to have some fuzzy logic about how Anet wanted backpieces to be easier to get so they thought that this recipe was added to do that.  Maybe someday when a too good to be true thing presents itself to someone, they will think for 2 seconds before they dive headfirst into it and end up getting banned.


Haters gonna hate.

'Sploiters gonna sploit.

Anet gonna ban.


#2066439 What is the hardest Explorable Dungeon path?

Posted Milennin on 07 November 2012 - 10:45 AM

Citadel of Flames path 3 is pretty hard without proper communication.
Arah path 1 is hard if your team sucks at Giganticus Lupicus.
Arah path 4 is... well, you'll have to see for yourself. :D


#2134149 So it seems a lot of naughty boys and girls got one last gift from Santa this...

Posted Swoopeh on 03 January 2013 - 10:49 AM

To quote that Anet post:

Quote

I’ve seen the numbers, and the damage to the economy could have been substantial, if the exploit wasn’t closed down and if these people were allowed to use their ill-gotten gains. People whose accounts were terminated were the worst offenders. I’m talking a lot of ill gotten gains, and a significant risk to the economy.
Any time you take one thing and can make two, and then four, and then sixteen… ya gotta know that’s just wrong. (I won’t quibble on the odds, overall, doubling was not outside the rules of probability.) And to perform that action hundreds and hundreds of times? That’s call “exploitation,” my friend, and that’s against the User Agreement, the Rules of Conduct, and all that is holy.
I know the OP will disagree. But we’ve been more than kind, in the past, and everyone needs to own up to his/her errors and recognize: We all are part of the game economy, and those who exploit it are hurting the rest of us.
Exploit closed.
Worst offenders terminated.
That’s what has to happen to make things right for all of us.

The bold part is important I think to prevent taking this out of context. If they banned everyone who made a few ectos off this then I would agree that that's harsh. However they only banned those who made significant use of the exploit and made a profit thus messing with the economy.

I wouldn't have perma-banned them though, they really need a better penalty system. First strike is a warning for those who think they're doing no harm, second strike to show they mean business and the third strike you're out.

#2126637 Gold Wars 2 - Portrait of a campaign

Posted matsif on 23 December 2012 - 04:31 PM

the game isn't P2W, its pay for convenience.  I can buy 4000 gems and trade them in for 50g, or I can spend 2 weeks farming AC to get the same amount of gold.  there is nothing in the gem store that helps in PvE content other than rez orbs and repair kits (maybe some boosters, but I have plenty of them from other parts of the game), and honestly I don't know anyone who even uses boosters all the time or even rez orbs or repair canisters to say that people are actually using them that often.

from a PvE aspect, the game is easy enough already that having these items isn't really necessary at all.  I have over 20 repair canisters in my bank that I've gotten just through opening black lion chests with keys I've gotten through leveling alts and dailies etc, not to mention the amount of unused boosters I have just sitting there because I don't see any use for them overall.

basically, buying gems for gold is just the lazy person's way around doing some easy content for an hour a day to make gold.  the gem store itself offers nothing in my mind that is a direct payment towards winning the game.  the boosters and other cons from the gem store are in no way worth it overall until you get into content that crosses the line from fun to just stupidly hard for no reason (imo).  if you have enough money to spend on gems to buy all the gold needed for a legendary, then by all means go right ahead.

if people didn't feel entitled to everything and didn't cry about not getting it instantly, then we wouldn't even be having this discussion anyways.
