In Topic: Is GW2 dead now or is it just the forums?

I can only speak for me, but I literally just chimed in to look if they finally added something like new classes/skills/weapons that would provide fresh gameplay like they did all the time for gw1.

Apparently they didn't, hence why I'm leaving again to maybe check back in early 2015...

So, instead of giving us what we wanted (appearance slots), they give us something quite like it, with a lot of unneccessary downsides and a recurring money drain in it. Personally, I am less then impressed.

Sooo, what they are saying is

"In order to straight nerf zerker damage output, we decided to hide it behind a stat rename that has no actual function other then being harder to read and less intuitive. We also changed the UI to reflect that purely semantic change, because surely somebody somewhere was not able to add 150% to a given percentage."

"Also, we realized that the average player is even more of a moron then we thought initially, and has proven to be incapable of dealing with the incredibly low learning curve we planned for skill acquisition. Therefore, in our continued effort to cater to the lowest common denominator, we decided to stretch out the levelling experience even more: you will now have to wait longer before builds come together, and will instead be able to change your loadout from the one skill distribution that works within the given boundaries to another that doesn't *on the fly*!"

In Topic: No Serial Codes

This is not an official forum, so you can't get any definite help here. You should probably try contacting their official support here, and try to keep any proof of purchase you have ready, like transaction no. (if you have any), bank account used for purchase, emails used etc.
I'm pretty positive they should be able to solve the problem quickly if the codes really just haven't been sent and are still unactivated.

In Topic: When will GW2 get real PvP?

Wow, Ramin published that? Replace dopamine with snake oil and you'd basically have the same article :P

I can't believe someone who has worked in the sciences would write something of this level. There's far too much conjecture and assumption that's being sold as fact.

Agreed. While it is clear that dopamine is something that is in work while gaming, the article fails to explain it's assertion that every game has a "corresponding dopamine dosis", which is constant for every customer. Of course it's a metaphor, but I think it is distorting important differences. For instance, the examples he gives are simply equating his concept of "dosis" to complexity and that's it. Where would you place chess on this scale? Or slot machines?
