#2097324 Chris Whiteside "Ask Me Anything" Highlights

Posted Greibach on 26 November 2012 - 10:16 PM

It just seems to me like they aren't sure who to target for their metrics. If you look at the players that have 1000+ hours logged already, those who may have been farming non-stop or manipulating the markets, the costs of these ascended items are high, but not compared to the wealth they have. When you compare it to someone like myself, who has about 300 hours, they look awfully steep. When I see these statements about "wanting minimal grind" after introducing items with objectively superior stats that take 300 ecto + other mats to attain each, I have to imagine that they are panicking about the number of players that are rolling in money. In my opinion, this is a poor group to look at. Those who want to achieve vast wealth will always do so; you can't keep them at bay without enacting measures that cripple anyone else, so I don't believe that they should be looking to them for what they determine as the baseline. If they want content to be virtually unattainable for the vast majority of players, that's one thing, but their stated goals disagree with that. There is a disconnect somewhere.

I don't now or will I ever have any any of these items. I personally hate dungeons and the way the ascendance stuff works just doesn't interest me. And before I get jumped on I am not asking for easy dungeons or that they be removed. Not liking them is a personal choice and I have no belief the game should catter to me in this.

None, since I am an Ascended hater, why would I have an Ascended item?

I will always be in FOTM level 1 as I have stopped playing FOTM altogether.  I will be forced to quit this game sooner or later as I have decided not to participate in their gear grind.  Bring it on, ArenaNet!

#2089313 What happened with Tyrian assembly?

I'm a GW fanboy, and proud of the positive and negative that it brings. The fact that agony was introduced doesn't bother me in the slightest, it's just a way to get to a higher level in fractals. What I do mind is the stat increase. No matter how small, it's still an increase. Anet has completely ignored what made GW1 great, that gear was completely unimportant, over skill. Sure skills are still extremely important for your role, but now you have to add numbers to it. Weapon stats bonuses like health, enchant extra time and the like were not as important as your skills.
