#2289594 Your opinion about PvP bans over missed Solo Tournaments

Posted Corsair on 02 February 2014 - 04:35 AM

This should be looked at from multiple angles, not just the punishment but the prevention one as well. Dota 2, for example, alerts me when I have a match and I am alt tabbed with the matchmaking audio and flashing on my toolbar. This would likely circumvent situations such as this. Yes, it is inconsiderate to miss your match, and some punishment is necessary for leaving a match. For leaving a matches I don't find the punishment particularly onerous. But I'd rather there exist reasonable measures to prevent such things from happening to someone who misses out due to carelessness.

The end result is hopefully the same, the player shows up for their match rather than quitting. Rather than through punitive measure it is accomplished through a simple reminder.

Yet you come here as a "victim" asking if it's "harsh" and talking about how it makes you not want to play despite the fact that under no reasonable circumstances are you defensible. Your that gamer that sucks that no one wants to play with right now. You're the kid who just leaves the dungeon because he gets bored on the hardest bosses or quits PvP because he doesn't have top score. That's you right now.

Dude, stow the vitriol already.  I don't know if Friday's actions are right or wrong, but blatantly saying he/she effing sucks because of it doesn't do anyone any good.

Lighten up.

#2221387 Aiden Frost's S/D sustain burst guide

Posted Jschatt on 23 July 2013 - 09:24 AM

Here's the guide: http://intothemists....uide.php?id=202

#2226194 [x-post] The Death of Alts

Posted Captain Bulldozer on 13 August 2013 - 10:20 PM

You also forgot 23 explorable dungeon runs to get enough for exotic armor PER CHARACTER, not to mention weapons.  Also, the general elusive nature of exotics overall and soulbound legendaries.

Oh yes, and high cost skill point items when skill points are character bound, with no way to transfer skill points between chars (like GW1 had).

There're are plenty more of course...

My theory is that the people developing GW2 are largely people who are "new" to anet and brought in all the bad ideas from working on other shitty MMOS out there instead of bringing good ideas from GW1.

#2226940 Game dev harassment eroding the industry

Posted Arewn on 16 August 2013 - 05:06 PM

Bit lengthy, but an interesting read. Talks about the effects of internet harassment towards devs by players, and considerations for making a support group for devs.
A reminder that people have feelings, and negativity and harassment, even on the internet, does have repercussions.

#2128136 When will GW2 get real PvP?

Posted deluxe on 25 December 2012 - 11:29 PM

I haven't played for about 2 months now, and wondering: will GW2 ever have real PvP?
The capture point sPvP does not count to me as real PvP, and WvW is just casual PvE/PvP garbage.

I am hoping for some actual GvG and something like Tombs, even random arenas was more fun than capture point PvP..

Is there any hope left for GW2 PvP wise?

#2217682 New to engi. I noticed weird grenade behavior

Posted GuanglaiKangyi on 08 July 2013 - 04:18 PM

Grenade does have a weird bug when sometimes it auto-targets on whoever you have targeted, rather than where you ground-target it.  It's usually only for one throw and as far as I can tell only when you first equip the kit.

#2217907 Why I'm probably quitting the game after only a few weeks

His single issue, or thesis, was that he disliked the game, everything else he wrote was padding.  I adressed this, and what I consider a reasonable manner.

He points out that he has issues with the game because of:
- how DEs work
- the PS
- shallow combat
- hearts

Your post in no way contradicts those issues: it doesn't even address them. Can we assume that you agree with the OP?

Your post can be summarized with "Don't like it, don't do it!" in a thread that you "don't like", but feel obligated to "do". (By "do", I mean post in it.)
Take your freaking advice and don't bother posting if you can't post about the issues that the OP is discussing. And if you feel that the thread violates the forum rules, report it. I think the OP singles out some of the core issues with the game, but we did have a bunch of these threads already, so I can see why it would be closed down. And the fact that we are now bitching about the bitching instead of discussing the issues certainly isn't helping. Which is why I hope, if the thread stays alive, that pretty much everything I posted here will be removed, along with the shit you posted.
It makes for a shitty forum if we discuss discussions rather than the issues said discussions tackle.

OP you are not alone in this.
anyone who came to GW2 looking for a great game like GW1 was disappointed.

Yes, that's true - the game is in very early stages. I don't want to wait to 2015 at all... x_x

What is slightly worrying is the engine - CryEngine 3, which is not the absolutely greatest engine in terms of feeling. Crysis 3 was too much for me, for example. Beautiful game but so much going on that it's hard to track motion of a single object. Planet Calypso, for example, is an mmo that uses CryEngine 2 and it feels terrible in terms of controlling your character movement and combat. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I fear the game might look like the best space game that has ever been made on this planet, but it might not feel that good when you get on your ship. I really hope the space ships feel 'alive' when you fly them. So, this is why I am waiting for some actual gameplay footage, because if they show even a 20 second clip of PvP combat - it will tell a LOT about the game.

Yeah will be interesting to see how models will flow and animate in a space environment in cry engine 3, have you seen the motion capture video's? The players were asked to help fund a motion capture studio which we did :) Now they can use it 24/7 towards the game and even rent it out to other game studio's which means another revenue source, plus they saved a lot of money as hiring a studio would of meant a lot of money.

Chris Roberts and RSI are pretty big on immersion, high detail, pushing PC to the max etc.

As for spaceship motion and feel, you can kind of get some idea how it will feel and fly from the demo / alpha video's earlier on in this topic where it shows some older footage and from the 300i video's which they announced is in the game engine as you will see it when you play the game, they made a statement saying that.


The response to the 300 Series promotion has been incredible! Your support isn’t just making Star Citizen a reality, it’s changing the face of game development. In fact, you pushed the project over an important milestone: over the weekend Star Citizen backers officially passed the $10,266,844 pledged to Pebble Watch, making Star Citizen the number one crowd funded project of all time. That’s a record you should be proud of. But we’re just getting started!

I would like to clarify one further thing about the commercial: the video you saw wasn’t just made in-engine, it used actual game models. You’re looking at the 300i mesh you will see in Star Citizen and not some high-poly fake created for cutscenes and good PR. What you’re seeing is what you’ll play.

This is the new director's cut video of 300i.

#2216489 CoF 4 Ranger 1 Mesmer (normal weapons)

Posted Bebibu on 03 July 2013 - 09:19 PM

This is for all you warriors... f*** you! We can do it too.
I forgot to record , so add 1,20 min and u got the real time in the first video.

With a little better Coordination towards skills and weapon sets to minimize the bleed overlay and maximize dmg output im pretty sure we rangers can do it a little faster.

This is not a we are the best class video. I just hate the fact that you cant join a speed run group as a ranger cuz everyone is a stupid warrior. I know it's easier to go with 4 warriors and probably faster but i just wanted to show that we rangers are not that bad!

2nd and 3rd run was kinda fail in many ways.

For everyone interested my own build was:
full zerk, ~90% crit with sigil of strenght ~ good might stacking. pretty much not switching weapons, cuz i wanted to see how good/bad the shortbow is, and i thought someone else can stack vulnerability.

They don't want you to make money in game, they want you to buy money with your credit card and only play a few hours a week.

#1856524 My one tiny complaint.

Posted TheGizzy on 31 August 2012 - 05:42 PM

As an adoptee now in her 40's, I can tell you that until the PC police started telling me what to think, I - like every other adopted kid I knew, including my siblings - referred to my birth family as my "real parents."  So did my adoptive parents.

Tyria is an entirely different planet that is pretty much somewhere between medieval times and the industrial revolution... their residents are too busy fighting for their lives to worry about politically/socially correct language.

I didn't even stop using "real parents" until I was in my 30's and started looking for them.  I joined a few support forums that had adoptees, first families and adoptive families all in one place... and got immediately taken to task for how I thought of my relatives.  Somehow by calling my birth parents my "real" parents, I was imbued with the power to negate the specialness of the adoptions the Guatamommies had just finalized.

And incidentally, I WAS "given up."  Yeah, I've been through all the PC terms with that, too... "no no, it's 'surrendered'!!!" or "you must use 'given over,' silly girl!"  No - my birth mother most definitively and assuredly gave me up.  As she did my next-older sibling.

Your child will only be sensitive to such language if you teach him/her to be... the whole adoption-positive/sensitive language thing is 100% about the egos and feelings of the parents - both types.  We're the kids.  We're the ones you guys have passed between each other.  We get to use whatever language WE want to describe OUR adoption and OUR relatives.  And in the Tyrian context, that is an adopted child speaking his/her truth.
