#2115907 Forcing players to PvP for World Completion

Posted Zhaitan on 12 December 2012 - 07:12 PM

There are only two skills needed to complete the WvW Maps.

1. ZLAP - Zerg Like A Pro
2. RLSG - Run Like a Screaming Girl

I don't think I need to provide the detail decription of these skills as the names are self explanatory. :)

#2119066 why so much negativity

Posted sty0pa on 15 December 2012 - 03:36 PM

I'd put it down to:
- a crazy-dedicated base of GW1 fans that assumed GW2 was going to be exactly whatever they dreamed it would be
- a very long development time, allowing a lot of people to join the bandwagon
- ANet's marketing department run amok implying lots of things that ultimately haven't (yet) been developed in any meaningful way: home zones, town clothes, character story, etc, etc.
- trolls; because the fanbase is so full of idealists, they're easy and amusing to troll.

#2097361 AMA Post-Mortem Discussion, What You Got Out of It

Posted MazingerZ on 26 November 2012 - 10:51 PM

I won't be posting anymore quoting AMA that is currently on-going, despite the fact that the Guru News link hasn't been updated in over an hour, instead let's talk about what was discussed.

Vertical progression is here to stay.

Ascended gear was imagined post-launch.  They claim it should have been in there at launch.  This is a fix to what they perceive to be a design error in the gear progression.  Never mind the fact that Legendary-Exotic-level max stats were supposed to be balanced around the end-game.

Looks like the game's going to introduce a shallow power curve.  They won't introduce any new item tiers.  They are just going to raise the stats on new items.  Like WoW epics.

However, don't worry, ArenaNet is looking into the idea that maybe their grind is too much and re-evaluating the costs.  I'm sure they'll patch a price fix around the same time that Cash->Gem->Gold sales taper off from people trying to purchase ectos and other stuff off the TP.

In short, I will no longer be paying money to support this game.

I do believe this Nov update was some sort of test. A test to see how the general community responds to another step in the gear ladder. To determine how much of the player base enjoys elitism/segregation by progress vs skill. An experiment to observe how the locust swarm rips through additional content, hits the next gear wall and when finished says, "We'll, now what do I do?"

And, of course, to see how much of a profit can be made through the cash shop. Knowing players had used all their Black Lion chests during Halloween, they went straight to unlocked-on-purchase Consortium chests. Very clever, indeed.


#2086336 Let's Support A.NET

#2085499 Ascended Items

Posted ExplosivePinata on 18 November 2012 - 02:19 AM

Give me more skins to choose from yes, but give me a slight advantage with them, no thanks!

Q:  In GW1 did people farm Bone Dragon staffs or Frog Scepters etc. etc. because they gave them an advantage statistically?

A:  No!

#2078060 Finding the server I prefer

Posted Dasryn on 14 November 2012 - 12:54 AM

i think server mergers will happen soon.  not in a negative sense, but just to consolidate a little bit.  its wont be a major merger, but i think it needs to be done maybe in a few months.

#2076949 Exotic armor sets soon to be worthless?

Posted Eon Lilu on 13 November 2012 - 04:37 PM

Are exotic sets of armor and jewelery soon to be worthless? Now that there will always be the next armor and gear to get like every other mmo, does it make all that players have worked for already worthless and pointless to get?

Im personally glad I didnt craft / buy the rest of my exotic sets I only have one but some players have got multiple exotic sets on multiple characters, is all there effort worthless now because of the next new thing on the block?

And now there all souldbound and worthless, can’t even get your money or ecto’s or ori ore back or gold that you spent…

Anet just screwed over anyone that worked on getting exotics for there character because they were told there would not be gear grind….with horizontal gear progression. Its all about the cosmetics etc....


This weekend exotic rings and the 5 gold backpacks everyone bought will become worthless and no longer the best in the game...what happens when there is full sets of ascended armor? Exotics will be pointless in getting.

#2069761 I like to get map completion on every character I make

Posted BreadBuddy on 09 November 2012 - 04:22 AM

I dunno why I do this myself, it just feels like the character is incomplete without it plus it's a nice way to level and make some cash.

Is this dumb? Does anyone else do this? Am I wasting my time?

#2060719 Rate GW2!

Posted Al Shamari on 04 November 2012 - 08:00 AM

I give it a 6, personally. That isn't to say I don't love the game, but it is missing things.

- Alternate PvP modes.
- Cross server communication features, guesting, etc.
- Guild halls and better guild functions (calenders, alliances, etc).
- No larger team, elite areas (Underworld, Fissure of Woe, Sorrow's Furnace, The Deep, etc).
- Straying away from instanced game play, give us some more instances aside from dungeons.
- The quest system is overall rather silly.
- Dynamic events need to feel more "dynamic" and exciting, give me truly harder bosses that take real skill and team tactics, not higher health pools.

Those are just a few of the things that I believe they could work on (some of which, yes I understand they're working on). I will probably make a thread of my own to expand on some of these things in the future.

#2006179 Make PvE separate from PvP

Posted thehotsung on 09 October 2012 - 05:11 PM

This got me thinking.  People call me a troll and disagree with me because I want holy trinity. mounts, raid, and most importantly "build wars".  

People say it ruin balance?  Balance for who?  Balance for PvP not PvE.  Why can't I have more than 20 minions as a minion master?  The answer is because MM would ruin WvWvW.  You can't have build wars because if affect PvP. None of the things I mention affect PvE but it does affect PvP.

In general, PvP ruin the PvE experience. Look at game like Rift with main focus on PVE. Look how much better the community is. Look at all the different gears you get from quest reward. Look at all the quest you get. Look at it build wars and soul system. Grant I don't like Rift cause the movement/combat is clunky, and the world is just the complete opposite of Guild Wars 2. It just too dark for my taste much like Elder scroll games, but it has a lot of the good elements of WoW and similar resemblance to GW1.

People need to stop saying that build wars ruin balance. Balance for who? Balance for Pvpers not Pvers

Like I said before, this game was made for PvP not PvE.  Why should Pvers lose out on their enjoyment so that there is "balance" in Pvp?

Soluton:  make PvE and PvP completely different game.

#1739897 Confirmed: a logistical, non-WvW reason to care about your guild's home s...

Posted shanaeri rynale on 15 August 2012 - 10:49 PM

*deep breaths* How in hell is this a good thing Arenanet?

I had hoped guildies who could'nt get on our main server could just go where they liked and enjoy the full benefits of membership with us. But noooo heaven forbid people actually want to do things together and reap the rewards together. They've now go to go and earn all the perks themselves too.

They can't share in the guild bank, they cant donate money there. If you want buffs then you are so out of luck, go earn them. Want an emblem or weapon markings. Tough. Sorry that everyone else in the guild has got one, but you know you were too slow and ended up on another server.

I am just simply amazed at how little Areanet seem to regard their players, the guilds and the community. It's just one farce after another atm :( which is a massive, massive shame because the game mechanics are great but the game itself has no heart or soul anymore.
