So, just out of curiosity.. did the recent change to limit the number of allied targets hit by your heals/buffs to 5 bother anyone, or deter them from the Guardian?
PvE/sPvP things are more or less unaffected, but for any WvW players, did the changes bother you? I'm curious as I'm having a personal crisis having ditched my 80 Warrior for my Guardian, and committing to tier 3 cultural armor on it. The main reason for my choice was how supportive the guardian could be, and how a few good guardians could change the tide of a battle in WvW. Whilst the changes were necessary to combat the turtling tactic in WvW, having just completed an 80 set with supportive stats (prec/vit/hp) and a supportive rune set up, I feel like it's been rendered relatively useless.
I want to know if this is an Australian thing, or just something that's happening..
PvE. Smooth. Even at the larger scale bosses with 100 odd people. Zero lag, ability delay.
WvW. Pretty much the same.
sPvP. Can be smooth. As soon as I get into combat/near a player. BOOM LAG. As little as 1-2 second delay, can be up to 6 seconds, if not complete lag outs to the point I unlag as dead. Generally even the PvP lobby see's a ~1 sec delay.
Is this happening to everyone? Every Australian? Or what.
For reference sake, I even tried using a tunneling service. What a waste of money that was.
The most infuriating thing is, even during the BWE's or Stress Tests, I was fine. Damn release comes around and it's like I'm trying to play on a 56k dial up.
