They announced that Halloween would be identical at the end of the last Living Story update.  New content continues on 4 November.

Sorry, I stopped checking every update and comment from Anet when they proved again and again there isn't much worth my attention.  I play when there are interesting things to do and when I started spending more time reading about the game than playing it I stopped reading about it. They started a precedent with Halloween the last couple years they couldn't keep up with and that is disappointing.  I remember last year people were upset with the limited set of repeat content, I can only imagine now, although most probably don't even take the time to express their dissatisfaction any longer.

"This coming Tuesday, October 21, the Mad Realm returns with our annual Halloween release. On December 16, we’ll release our usual holiday-themed festivities with Wintersday. Both of these releases will feature the same content as last year but with refreshed rewards, giving you fun new festival-themed items to earn."

I get it...people been working on lots of stuff...but seriously...the only new thing will be the rewards?

Not changing the holiday events(only changing rewards) is a bit of a let-down. Adding 1 or 2 small events or something...I'm not asking for a huge different storyline...but just making something new...I'm sure there will be many more vitriol filled tirades than this...I'm just really disappointed...hopefully the next part of LS S2 will be fan-damn-tastic.

I was really looking forward to continuing the Halloween story.  I expected some kind of tie-in with Lion's Arch being destroyed as well, but all we get is a skritt in a new location.  This has been a major letdown and a sign of the state of the game (as in static).

"Tyria's Point of No Return" could be considered an unfortunate title, others would say we've already passed it.

In Topic: Thoughts on the September Feature Pack?

10 September 2014 - 03:33 PM

These are some of the dumbest changes I have seen in regard to leveling and the only explaination I can think of is they are doing the same thing for China and the West.  This is something Chinese players like, hand-holding and generally not thinking.  I was considering making a new character but there is no way now.  They're trying to milk every minute they can out of the content they already created by sending players back and forth between zones as things that were normal like vistas and skill points unlock instead of creating new content and that is not acceptable.  Luckily I have other games to play that won't waste my time.  Between the trait gating and this I am quite disappointed with Anet.  Even if they do roll out an actual expansion's worth of content I don't know if it would be worth the money or time to play it they way Anet is working these days.

In Topic: Quality in GW2?

29 July 2014 - 02:29 PM

There are two main ways to talk about quality.  The first is comparative quality; comparing a game to others in the genre or series.  The second is individual quality; the game on its own.  Both are subjective and both are required to get a good idea of the game.

Comparatively there is really nothing that plays like GW2, which has been a major strength.  There really isn't another MMO I would play because they're all full of busy work and crap I don't have time to deal with, whereas GW2 was fun from the start.  On it's own there are flaws that are still present from beta.

Ok.. so.. if Rytlok ends the curse in Ascalon what happens to the dungeon? I can see 1 of 3 things happening.. it stays as is, changes to conform to the new pve world or they just destroy it. Seeing how Anet loves to destroy their work, it is entirely possible that AC just disappears and a new dungeon comes in its place some time later... perhaps in dry top or somewhere else... can't wait till next tues.

They handled that already with the journal system.  They allow for multiple time periods at the same time depending on what story you have active.

Best case scenario; they follow the ley line path and awaken the other dragons leading up to the announcement of a large expansion with zones all over the Tyrian map.  More likely; we'll follow some vine down a road.
