#2260193 New NCSoft Earning report is out...

Maybe she will make an alliance of the elder dragons and makes them into a hyrbid! Then after we defeat the chimeric dragon she teleports away and the end chest gets you 2 greens, a blue, and a rare chance at a mini middle finger of scarlets'.

The endgame is cosmetics, and we havent had very many new armor sets, and very few compelling ones.
ANet made a big mistake in not recognizing how they made cosmetic armor upgrades work in GW1:

In GW1, you had a lot of cosmetic options that were easy to attain, but you also had some that took a lot of time and effort (FoW armor).

In GW2, however, a legendary is pretty much the only difficult skin to attain.  There are very difficult to attain skins in PvP, but sadly, they look the same as armor sets that are a breeze to pick up in PvE.

As a result of this, you end up with players who have played through the easy content, but have little challenge and even less incentive to take up challenges.

Gem Store and your credit card according to Arena Net. :P

I'm just laughing at the fact that this was written as though it has some intentions of being come Zeitgeist conspiracy theorist report, or ripped from Wikileaks. You're not uncovering anything that hasn't already been stated hundreds of times.

Video guides: the WORST POSSIBLE WAY to convey information.
They're slow, linear, and usually (I haven't watched yours, so this isn't about you specifically) poorly done/shot/recorded/written/edited so much so it's painful to watch. (And too often they're just people posting some irrelevant crap, hoping to fluff their viewcount.)

If you have a list of DE 'chains' to follow....just write the list down.  Then share it with us.  It would be much appreciated!


#2132037 Wasted 250g in the Mystic Forge so far..

Yeah ANet increased the chance to obtain a pre-cursor on the mystic forge... from .001 to .002!

With only the icy runestones to go, for me, the pre-cursor itself is my only obstacle. Given how tycoons have manipulated the market ruthlessly my options are gambling, farm 400++ gold, or just wait until the supposed pre-cursor quest arrives (which will require equally grindy, arbitrary demands, of that I have no doubt).
The simple fact that you can have wildly different amounts of work necessary for a legendary due to rng is a big problem. Its a bad system, and its made worse by the fact that rich players can so easily manipulate the market and make tremendous profits doing so,


#2130160 Looking For Groups is Seriously Lacking

This website has a nice alternative, the trick is to make the website famous so more people will use it.

No. The trick is for ArenaNet to realise that people want a better way to organise grouping and provide that means to them in-game.

#2128154 From War Machine

Posted Jabtangs on 25 December 2012 - 11:46 PM

I am War Machine's GW2 lead officer Jang Gun.

I am deeply disillusioned about the current NA T1 match up.

People currently do all sorts of things to win: play the game in a wrong way, plant spies in the the other servers' guild and/or commanders, pm spamming all kinds of abusive words and making cynical remarks.

I, even until just now, received a lot of those pm spamming from unspecified persons from SoS. Looking at these people who apologize and pretend to be gentle on the forums while using abusive words and lying from behind, I ask myself if there has been any enemy that have been uncivilized and low leveled as them in the past gaming experience.

On the other hand, I am very disappointed by Arena Net who have been neglecting WvW and focusing PvE more and developers who cannot react to such a small bug fast enough.

I can say for sure that during the past 5 months from August to December, War Machine and I have never played the game in a unintended or wrong way. Enemies who fly around with the orb, jump over the wall to break the altar, and laying dead for several hours to be resurrected to take the same keep over and over. While I look at these enemies who think them as tactics to be proud of, I ask myself if I am not thinking correctly.

Earlier today I was thinking, "if you play dirty, I will react the same way." Then we jumped over the cliff of the garrison and took two of them pretty fast. Then I also thought WM should now focus on finding every possible bug and exploit that exist in the game like everyone else is doing then make fun of the enemies.

For the past hours I haven't been in WvW and thought about a lot of things.
Then I came to a conclusion. We don't want to play dirty. We don't want to play with/like low leveled players and pretend to be the king on top proud of ourselves.

War Machine and I will leave this disgusting T1 match up and will be heading to Kaineng, where we occasionally trained. A place where we give away all the benefits and advantages and only focus on fighting skills. We will not be like some others who bandwagons to another strong server and pretend to be the kings. It will be a tough and long journey, but in order to help a bit in saving the dying WvW and lower tiers, we are leaving T1.

If you want to join the trip to hell come join.

P.S. We will miss SBI.

#2112816 Future Content Updates Discussion - What do you want to see?

Posted Roth on 09 December 2012 - 12:55 PM

I would like to see new ways to acquire unique weapons that aren't simply "Grind out this checklist and throw it in the forge". There is a huge and expansive world yet all the nice skins require a dull, repetitive grind in the same most profitable area.

Profession-based armor.  Would like each class to look a bit more distinguishable.

Haha but our opinions and the things we like affect the choices we make in life, and the choices we make in life define who we are.

Yet a lot of the people actually playing the game aren't bored... so I can't really see the argument. Maybe you are. Maybe other people are. But that's them. Other people are loving their time in Guild Wars 2.

Guild Wars 2 isn't worse haha. If you think that, then you really need to look into what grind means :P
How does a choice define who you are? Let's say you make a choice to collect stamps. Then you make a choice to stop collecting stamps. Are you a stamp collector now, or not? And is "stamp collector" even a fraction of an infinitesimally small part of a definition of who you truly are?

Yes, some people (you, for example) are loving GW2. But that's fun for you: a strange thing, different for everyone, yet the same basic feeling. Try to give it meaning, and it goes away. But one thing is constant: all fun games (regardless of who they are fun for) validate the player's ego. That is done in different ways... For people like you, it's about patting you on the head and telling you that you are a good boy because you did all that grind. For people like me, it's about patting me on the head and telling me that I'm a good girl for beating a difficult challenge. It's not even about who is the most deceived here, because in both cases, the grind and the challenge, respectively, were there to be beaten. And that is... fun? Yes, that is fun.

As an amusing thought experiment, think of that the next time you do any kind of PvP. The devs set the game up so that one of the teams can beat the other one. Which means that one of the teams is there to be beaten? Or both?

At least it is not Jay Wilson... gg. I had to say it.

Let's see...franchise item is used to sell units as a follow up, yet it lacks much of what the original had and it burned the fans in the end just to sell units.

Similarity?

Where is the Guild Wars in my Guild Wars game?  Where is that "no grind for gear tread mill" in my Gear Wars game?  Where is the "we removed as much tedium as we could" and then added it back in 3 months later?  The entire fiasco smacks of being WIlsoned.

I await the day I read that Colin posted "f that loser" on some developer facebook page.  At that moment the circle will have closed.
