In Topic: Finding WvWvW utterly painful

23 October 2013 - 03:19 PM

-Learn about builds as in do NOT run full glass cannon for everything
-Learn how to zerg with proficient commanders eg. stacking, blasting, group movement, front, mid, and backline roles in large engagements
-Improve general map sense and awareness

Maybe you be an excellent commander one day.  On a side note SoS is in Gold which means you get all the tryhads, which probably isn't good for WvW introduction as in running with a large coordinated group in a relative dead time is the best way to learn how to zerg correctly; also SoS relies a lot on SEA/Oceanic presense to win match ups, but in T1 you guys might struggle a lot since T1 servers are really even in terms of coverage.  You also really need to improve your gear; just do dungeon trains to upgrade to full exotic.

Everybody who was running MF gets to pick a primary stat now instead of giving it away. Just have a look how much points you get from it then come back and say again it makes no difference.

As far as the inevitable "it's all about skill" argument is concerned (I was seriously surprised that no one has brought it up before), well, firstly you will be significantly weaker when you sacrifice stats to stack MF (again, please have a look how stats are distributed among gear), secondly you don't know about the skill of other players unless you have played with them before. And that's usually not the case when playing with pug. If you had the choice between a player you have never seen before with MF gear and one with normal gear you'd always pick the later as your teammate, wouldn't you?
I know that some people love to tell themselves that they are skilled enough to contribute as much as a properly geared player even when they are running full MF. This has been the case since this topic has been first brought up months ago. Not only is it quiet presumptuous to consider oneself that much better than the average player (the vast majority wont live up to this claim) it is also a self-delusion to have an excuse for not having to contribute as much as others.

That's not it.  It's a small part.  The biggest problem with people running MF in dungeons is respect.  It's about willingly screwing over your other 4 members so you could contribute less and get better rewards.

In Topic: Choosing a server

If you like mass zerg fights 24/7 go to any tier 1 server.  TC is good if you're into ERP.

In Topic: Started this topic on the official forums.

Wait smart people still post on the official forums?  That place is like ArenaNet defense force HQ where any good constructive critism of the game is considered a death threat on their lives and family and will declare a vandetta on you.

Good thing I didn't fall when I ran it recently.
