#2245634 ArenaNet clamps down on open speech

Posted I Raven Dawn I on 16 October 2013 - 11:09 PM

Some more infos for clarity what counts as offensive:

CC Danicia said:

We’re definitely working on retooling and improving Moderation and messaging.
Using locoman.1974’s post to reiterate:

Constructive:

“I don’t like the way Anet is handling the game”
“I find this new dungeon path boring because XXXX”
“I think these armor/weapon designs are ugly”

Insulting & non-constructive:

“Anet isn’t competent enough with this game”
“Anet lied to us”
“Fire whoever designed this dungeon/weapon/armor”
“whoever designes this dungeon/weapon/armor clearly has no clue”

You can discuss things we’ve said (manifesto, dev posts, blog posts, interviews) and disagree with them or even criticize. We’re okay with that. When it crosses over to insults is where we draw the line.

We already give infractions for name-calling, so this doesn’t change. If someone calls you or other players “crybabies”, “trolls”, or whatnot, that is infraction worthy. Calling something badly designed is not wrong. Saying that ArenaNet is dumb for a design is wrong.
And no, just because you say something nice, doesn’t mean that you get a free pass.

#2232237 Salvaging

Posted typographie on 09 September 2013 - 11:41 PM

If you're salvaging rare (yellow) or exotic (orange) gear at level 68+, you want to use a Master's or Mystic kit, to maximize your chances of getting Ectoplasm or Dark Matter. If there's a rune or sigil on the piece that you want (sometimes they're worth more than the item itself), use a Black Lion kit if you have it.

For everything else, I use a Basic kit. Fine and Journeyman salvage kits don't really seem to serve much purpose: you either need to salvage a high-end item for expensive materials with a Master's kit, or you don't. There's not much reason to be in the middle ground in my opinion.


#2215029 Update Notes for June 25th

I'm all for constructive criticism, and there's plenty to criticize in GW2. But sarcasm and insults are not constructive, and seem more a product of self-indulgence and personal issues than deficits with the game.

Got a problem with GW2? Great! Let's hear it.

But using Guru to hassle players who enjoy the game and as a dumping ground for emotional baggage is inconsiderate and tedious.

Play, or play not. It ain't rocket science. :P
