Trading Post is QUADRUPLE CHARGING the "tax". Proof inside.

20 October 2012 - 08:21 AM

So, on top of the other indefinably long list of bugs and rushed designs that ArenaNet implemented, the Trading Post is now charging 4x the "cut" of sellers.

As you can see, when I sold something for 5g, it says the "cut" is 25s, when in reality the cut is 50s. That is for listing. On top of that, the transaction was successful and another 50s was charged of me. I sold my dye for 5g and received 4g.

Now what bother me is that ArenaNet says they got an internal economist to watch the game economy. Can you guys tell me which non retarded economist will tell a 20% true cut on all the game transactions, on top of the all other gold sinks (waypoints, ressurrection, repair, salvage kits) and RNGs (mystic forge, transmutation, upgrading, legendaries) is totally OK?

You guys can see by my posting history that I like GW2. I wanted it to be successful. I put my faith in it as my last MMORPG and if things keep going this way, my MMORPG career will end  much, much sooner than I thought....

Disappointed yet again...

Anyone else feels burnt out already? Nothing to do, nothing to aim for.

First of all, this is not a flame or troll post and if you have nothing insightful to add, I ask you to simply not reply.

I have put a little over 250 hours in the game now, playing with my old Guild all the way and this is my story:

I reached level 80, got a full exotic set with the stats I wanted, then transmuted the skins I wanted into it. Then I got the exotic weapons that I wanted and also transmuted it with the skins I wanted (corrupted, about 20g or endless hours grind). Then after completing the story quest, I went on to explore the world and got 100% map completion. I also completed all the jumping puzzles and whatnot.

Then I started playing the market to pile on Gold so I can afford keeping my Guild at WvW and fully equipping my future characters. I managed to make 300g within 3 or 4 days, it is really simply for anyone who have any idea of how a market works. Then I jumped into sPvP and tournaments for a while. Then I leveled all the crafting professions to 400.

.... what is left to do? The game seriously lack incentive for you to keep playing once you achieve your basic goals. Your level 80 character has absolutely no use other than being another number on WvW. I got the gear I wanted, the skin I wanted, the full map completion, puzzle jumps, I have a fortune in Gold which I use on the 1 hour I log in daily for WvW - which is by the way heaviliy 1 sided on my server so it is absolutely unfun...

There is simply nothing else to do. Dynamic Events get old and boring after you do each of them 3 times, Dungeons are ultimately pointless and too little reward for too much effort (after you get the skins) and then you have WvW and sPvP left, both with abysmal balance issues which turns it unfun to many players, including me.

I have no will to level a second character to 80 again, first because 100% world completion really burns you out and then because I already have one maxed out character... and it feels dull.

I had lots of fun in GW2 through the leveling process, but I don't see how it would be fun to do the same things with another set of skills.

Bottom line: the game seriously lacks any form of incentives for you to keep playing once you hit the cap. Why would I do another DE if I don't need gold, karma and if it is ultimately unfun because I have done it 4 times already? I really got my $60 worth of fun, I really did, but I fear for the longevity of the game on the current scheme of things. You have nothing to aim for. Nothing rewards you. Unbalances keep you away from sPvP and WvW.

This is just how I feel right now and I REALLY would like to find a reason to keep playing, but now I simply login to collect my Gold on the market... which I have no use for.

And before anyone else says this: I did not sped through content or rushed it in any ways. I played about 6 hours daily which I think is comparatively short to the average MMO player.

Thoughts? Insights? Suggestions? I am all ears...

Cheers,
Knuckle

So, after throwing my weekend away farming to craft Corrupted Bulwark, I finally got it.. and it is AMAZING. Only problem is that the Aegis effect absolutely screws up the skin. For those who likes to collect rare and prestigious skins like I do, this is a huge deal.

So, I just got Monthly Achievement and...

13 September 2012 - 06:14 AM

Rewards: 80 copper, 7k experience, 20 coins.

Are you serious? 80 COPPER? You get 5 silver on the daily achievement which can be completed in 20 minutes.

I am not sure if this is bugged or intended, apparently bugged. But I am kinda pissed right now. 80 copper doesn't pay one salvage kit, yet I had to salvage 500 items.

Honestly.... I am alittle let down right now. Was getting my cheers up for realizing there is no true grind but the lack of rewards for hard stuff is start to itch. CM explorable anyone? 3 hours run for no chest, no rares, no anything....

Blah...
