#2110749 The "Endgame" is a myth

I realize there is another solution building a game where all the content is player based (aka Eve online) so there is more potential for endless play but GW2 is not that game.
Also: sandboxes are a myth as you can only do what the limited tools the devs allow you to do.

#2103333 How much does this resonate with you?

Posted ~PolarisNova~ on 01 December 2012 - 08:38 AM

GW2 is a good game, but obviously not what you wanted or expected it to be. You keep posting the things you don't like, do you think by doing this that GW2 will suddenly become the game you want?

Anyway, I do agree that initially I felt movement in combat was slow....but I've gotten used to the pace, and used to the dodge rolling. I disagree that it doesn't require player skill, of course it does otherwise people would never be downed or dead. It does require quick reactions, and no amount of armor stats will help with lack of skill.

I enjoy the game, and I rarely ever post on here, because I am mostly (besides being generally busy in my life) having fun playing the game.

Posted AarodCutshot on 01 December 2012 - 03:48 PM

Kinda funny, I feel the same. The initial bot bans were met with welcome and people were like, ooh we can make money now. The catch then turned up; everything got significantly more expensive and so much so that it negates most farming benefits. Economics is an iffy subject at best anyway (hell most in game and real life economies are plain bad even if functional), but when it gets in the way of so much game play you know you have to do more than ban bots. You know, like not making every useful recipe require 250 of the highest mats.
Go farm more if you want something doesnt hurt to earn it... Learn good farming habits it isnt hard...

#2102704 So... what's your favorite dynamic event?

Posted soxx on 30 November 2012 - 06:48 PM

Way to turn a positive thread negative... it only took three posts.  Edit - I'm sincerely disappointed in myself that I was surprised by this.

My favorite is the one in Metrica Province where you accompany an asura team through Oola's old lab.  Because it's Oola!!  Also the dragon fights, because I like seeing the dragons.

#2100802 Why is it so hard to get money in this game?

Posted DuskWolf on 29 November 2012 - 08:46 AM

Because the way ArenaNet handles money in this game is broken. They're stingy and only allow the tiniest trickle of money into the game, and they tax what little mone you get. The game has been forced into a deflationary spiral, devaluing everything except prices which ArenaNet controls. This is to drive people to the gem store to buy gems to convert to gold.

A surprising (even to me) number of my friends have moved on from GW2, even one really hardcore friend from tumblr whom I was sure would be with it for years. And aside from the vertical progression bait & switch, the reason I hear the most is that they're sick and tired of being broke and they strongly dislike the cynical feeling of the game - where it almost feels necessary sometimes to buy gems if you just want to bounce around everywhere with the waypoints.

I've been playing a lot of other games lately, and they've all shown how unfun GW2 is in its current state. Mass Effect 3, Champions Online, and even Free Realms have a far less cynical approach to online gaming. GW2 is a casino dressed up as a game, the people who play it are gambling addicts.

GW2 is just not a fun game. More and more people are realising it. Sounds like it's begun to sink in for you, too. OP. Move on, don't draw it out.

#2098109 the mistakes Anet admitted

Posted Resolve on 27 November 2012 - 01:47 PM

Yeah lets listen to and put faith in what Anet says.

That's worked out pretty well so far.

#2091068 Temple of Balthazar and obsidian shards

Posted Cescoxonta on 21 November 2012 - 03:39 PM

Yes I understand... But I think they can not let an important part of the game (creating the legendary) being stucked because of a bug. Some workaround is needed (and I do not think fractals solve the problem)

#2075141 Am I the only person that hates the great sword?

Hammer is also extremely fun and very effective.

LF2M Must be ascended no exotics kthx.

It doesn't matter if it is only for that dungeon or not.  The fact is the exotic cap didn't work.  GW1 system in their eyes failed.  They could have made ACTUAL legendary armor just like weapons for this dungeons.  They *could* have simply restructure all loot drops (something COMMONLY complained about) to allow a much greater chance of random precursors to drop is you completed "X" dungeon paths in a day or something.  Or went for if you can speed clear "X" dungeon in "Y" time you get a precursor.

But no they seem to go the stat route. They aren't listening to player feedback they are running around trying to get a carrot as fast as possible.  Bugs aren't on their list.  Fixing the game isn't on their list. WvW/SPvP fixes aren't on their list.

But becoming more like WoW sure is.

Oh, I suppose you whined about Infusing your armor in GW1 (if you played it) as well? Seeing as you were more or less forced to Infuse your armor to get past a certain part of the game.

Oh look the GW2 community overreacting to something they haven't even seen 'in person'. I'm having flashbacks to pre-launch.

My advice; hold off on losing your minds until after we actually know the details of their implementation.

Anyone care to discuss?

This seems roughly similar and it's what I wore from about 60-80.  Slightly different now.  I think the top is Barbaric?  I'd have to check at home.
