#2152305 Can we agree on a dedicated PvE server?

Posted Burch84 on 28 January 2013 - 06:10 AM

I have to ask why - the OP has not made the case for a dedicated PvE server.  I going to stay on my server with my guild mates.

#2122116 GW2 as intended is very fun!

Posted Humungous on 18 December 2012 - 06:46 PM

Played nearly 3 hours last night with my brother, a serious rarity for me now that I have children, and we had a blast!

Bottom line is that we just did whatever we felt like, didn't sweat "progress" towards some ridiculous virtual goal, and mixed it up with different characters and events. In that 3 hours, we played four distinct game-modes, with 3 different characters each!

We started with an AC run, which was fun because we did a few things that we hadn't done before, rather than just speed-running it, and we had a few newer players to help along.

Then we went to EB to the jumping puzzle, which I'd never been to. It was a hoot. Didn't get far at all, but had some hilarious 3-way rivalries going with some FA & TC guys: yanking each other around and blasting each other off cliffs. Eventually, more TC showed up so we couldn't progress. Next time!

So the two of us ran around EB being obnoxious: taking camps, jacking yaks out from the middle of small zergs, stealing sentries, or drawing zergs to defend keeps from our two man "attacks". As a mark necro and focus mesmer, we eluded many zergs in some pretty epic chases. Didn't "accomplish" that much, but had some really fun cat and mouse going.

Finally, we dropped into tPvP, where we won our first tournament (we don't play much). We were mostly carried by a helluva thief player, but my brother and I had fun playing a psuedo-bunker-duo with strong team-fight builds. Our teammates were very nice people: didn't even complain when I bombed our first match (15 points maybe?)

So in 3 hours, we did a dungeon, ridiculous jumping puzzle + pvp, hit 'n' run WvW with some really fun chases (we had a group of 4 TC guys chasing us around for nearly 20 minutes), and a tPvP tournament. Never got boring, never felt grindy. We didn't really make much "progress", certainly not compared to focused grinding, but we had a lot of fun!

Much better than mindlessly trying to grind out some achievement, gear, or whatnot.

I agree wholeheartedly. It's nice to see fun stuff, but I would like to see something for those that prefer not to have odd looking shoulders and bottle-shaped focus etc. Pretty, sleek and elegant doesn't seem to be figuring in ANet's mind at the moment.....fan girl as I am, and admire them as I do, I would like to see a wider variety, and not just out of chests either.
Agreed, if I have to grind some dungeons a couple of dozen times I'd prefer it's not to get a "good stats" water bottle ..

:wacko: -_- :blink:

#2082117 Is GW2 in trouble?

Posted BnJ on 16 November 2012 - 12:23 AM

Is GW2 in trouble?  Hardly.

Could things be improved?  Sure.

Do we need more dramatised threads on the forum?  Not really.

#1846186 log in servers down?

Posted Devil Fruit on 30 August 2012 - 07:44 AM

Slightly offtopic from another thread, but I really wish they would make more official announcements on their web-site, or maybe even activate their forums?  Twitter and Facebook are fast means of communication, but not everyone uses them.  They should keep all of their players informed, whether they use Twitter or Facebook or not.  We aren't defined as GW2 players because we follow them on Twitter or like them on Facebook.  We need a more direct stream of information from AN's development team.

#1830602 Botters and Exploiters Caught

Posted sanenomore on 27 August 2012 - 11:47 PM

Nosey? Doesnt effect me? please.. farming currencies totally effects the economy and all MMOs have or should have a community that works together. That in my opinion means community policing. If you think cheating and exploiting are ok then go play a single player game. I stand by reporting things that are wrong.

Also, some (if not all) are botting because they were not only warned about being reported but they have been in the same spot spamming the same skills for 2 days now. I doubt anyone is actually at the computer doing that.

Sorry if you think I should let it be but its my game as much as its theirs and I am free to uphold the rules of the game.

Typical nosy person who can't mind his own business.  These people are not in any way bothering you or your game experience, so simply avoid them.  Let people level the way they want, even if it is in a way that is faster than the developers would consider "normal".  They are not exploiting either, they are simply farming.

Although some of them are botters, it doesn't matter as it is not your job to police the game...that is ArenaNet's.
There is a report function for a reason. I'll do my best to keep it a good community by reporting cheaters and ToS breakers. And I am sorry, but they ruin the game for everyone. This isn't a single player game. There will be a great impact on economy and WvW. It is just silly to tell people to simply ignore it. Play the game as it is meant to be played please.

And yes, they are exploiting, this is an exploit. This is the exact sort of argument you hear from MMORPG cheaters. Have you ever played a bot-infested game?

#1830515 Botters and Exploiters Caught

Posted sanenomore on 27 August 2012 - 11:22 PM

There is a group of "people" using an event in the Gendarran Fields to farm coin, exp and karma. These people are "botting" an event that spawns every 5 mins and insta-killing the mob that appears. Many people in my guild have been reporting them and watching to be sure they are in fact cheating.

I have taken screenshots and seen that people have been doing it non-stop since the headstart began. I hope to hell we see the ban hammer come out and kill this.

I hope people on other servers (we are on Northern Shiverpeaks) will do likewise. Report these individuals and stop the exploiters before they get out of hand.

No...yet my name is Durk Lee in real life. What does it mean elsewhere?

If believed that you had genuinely never heard of Team America, and were unaware of the internet meme of "durka", then I would feel sorry for you; but I don't, so I won't.

same, my headstart is gone already because i created a character called lonely milf

You obviously know what the "f" in milf stands for, yet you used the name anyway.

Think yourselves lucky that you only got a 72 hour ban and the opportunity to change your name for trying to find a way around the published naming policy.

I would be happier if ANET renamed your character after the ban, and you had to buy a cash-sale name change if you didn't like the name they gave you:  Something like this would stop people trying to find loopholes in the naming system.

#1807816 To Arenanet: Good Luck.

Posted cesmode on 24 August 2012 - 04:08 PM

Since we are roughly 12 hours away from what could be the official begin of head start, I just wanted to take a moment to thank Arenanet for their hardwork, dedication, and responsiveness(with regard to our feedback).  You have developed a great MMO, and I hope launch goes smoothly, not only for us players but you as developers.

Make us proud and good luck!

I also wanted to add that I am not soliciting a response from Arenanet, just wishing them success with the launch!

#1791965 Something about the GW2 armor design just doesn't quite cut it.

Posted Shamadamun on 23 August 2012 - 01:08 AM

Well, I respect the fact that you can voice your opinion, but I flat out disagree. The gear looks so amazing it's making it hard to pick a main.

Much as we love to troll you guys, this isn't trolling. There is a stress test starting in just a few minutes to help do a little bit of last minute testing. Begins at 9:10 PM Pacific Time, which is just about.....now!
