#2134141 So it seems a lot of naughty boys and girls got one last gift from Santa this...

they should focus on the trading post exploiters,who make thousands of gold just because they have thousands of gold.A person can buy 100 $ worth of gold from gold farmers and double that money in an hour,arenanet doesn't do anything about these people who are creating artificial prices,they ban some poor sucker who tried to get 50 ectos to craft some backpiece.

#2132060 Wasted 250g in the Mystic Forge so far..

Posted Daesu on 31 December 2012 - 09:26 AM

I am still waiting for the fanboys to come out and say this mystic forge gold sink is necessary to curb inflation.  Considering the amount of gold that got sucked into it, it is a very effective gold sink wouldn't you say?

How else are they going to nudge people to pay real money for gold?

Thanks, amazing cartoon, with a great intro (both seasons).

Trahearne is important to the sylvari story, why throw him into the second third of the story for everyone. I enjoyed the main story all the way until he became important, more important than us.

For the ones who played GW1, winds of change, there's a quest which disguises you as a random enemy (corsair, jade brotherhood or am fah), and when you are spotted, the leaders say things along the lines of "he's the one who took down dagnar stonepate" "because of him I lost my armada of ships" etc... And final joke, someone says "wow, this little nuisance gets around doesn't he?".

You were the hero of the stories, sure history remembers you as a mighty hero who helped the legends, but it didn't feel that way, doubly so in eye of the north.

What's wrong with some armor having some prestige to it?
Although dungeon armors (except maybe Arah) already have been ruined by making dungeons so incredibly easy.
Respawn points inside dungeons make almost any dungeon doable by the worst group of players. It becomes a matter of time and repair costs instead of player skill.

And well, prestige as in "costs a lot of money" isn't the kind of prestige I'm after.
Especially with the "legendary" skins we have now. And the RL Cash --> Gold mechanic.

But the whining is no less annoying.

And a 2 month old thread is nowhere near gravedigging. When you're on forums where threads from 2002 show up, there's an issue.

AND PEOPLE KEEP TELLING EVERYONE TO SEARCH! I never got that. "Search, noob!" *noob pulls up 4month old thread that's the latest one discussing his issue* "Great thread necromancy, noob! Fail!"

Tonics are like Black Lion chests, an inconvenience that I have to destroy.
Why not one of the MMO developers out there understands this is beyond me.

Temporary transformation item/buff: 99.9% of people are going to destroy it and see it as a hindrance. It'll become a hated thing by the many. It'll never sell, even if the price is 1 gem.

Permanent toggle-based transformation item/buff: A good amount of people are going to find these desirable for the fun factor. Look at how popular the charr one was in GW1. They could likely sell these on the gem store for 1,000 gems a piece and that would fund the game for years to come.

To be honest, they wouldn't need predatory BS like forcing people to grind their life away or convert gems to gold if they had anything worth buying with gems. This is the damned problem. Make a product we want to buy and we'll buy it. Stop trying to force people to buy gems by making the game unfun to play unless you buy gems just to make it playable, let alone fun. BLARGH!

Why are marketing people as stupid as they are greedy?

While on gw1 wear a tonic was even beatufiul (like the EL kuunawang tonic) and well, usable ingame playing pve, the dragon was attacking and using skills as the character, with little animations too, on gw2 is just a pure nonsense noone is interested on. Disabling all skills. So ye, just a failed content bad designed. They keep throwing this trash, not getting where the real problem is

Honestly I 100% agree that lore in Guild Wars is VASTLY superior to the one in Guild Wars 2.

Gone are the days of wondering just exactly what Glint is, what those giant statues in the Crystal Desert are, what the other god's realms look like, etc.

Don't get me wrong, Guild Wars 2 is a ton of fun. But as far as atmosphere and lore, it's not even comparable to Guild Wars.
Oh, so you already know exactly what the Steam Creatures are?
What the Elder Dragons ACTUALLY are and why they are here, if they have a leader and so on?

There are just as much if not more "mysteries" in GW2 than it was in all GW1 games combined.
I'm just not as interested in those questions.

Things like gods, the mist, and ancient races like the forgotten and mursaat are a lot more interesting for me than dragons. Every game has freaking dragons...
So considering the days of wondering are gone, you're telling me that you know what the three other gods realms look like? You know what happened to the forgotten? Where the mursaat fled to? Why they betrayed the other races? What exactly is the origin for the forgotten now that its called into question? You know where the gods went and why they're silent?

Those giant statues in the Crystal Desert haven't been answered either.

"a lot more interesting than dragons" yet you bring up Glint - ironic.

I'm sorry, but the implied point you're making is wrong - that there's no wondering behind GW2 lore like there was behind GW lore - and your opinion is also highly subjective because you - like Raspberry Jam - just toss out the new lore as "uninteresting" - and seemingly without even knowing it.

I'm not really all that interested in the nature of the Elder Dragons myself, though I have thought on it, but I see dozens of things of fascination and of total mystery in GW2's lore.

The intricate background and alliances of the Bandits. Why resurrection magic disappeared and now needs such large scale rituals. Among others, as well as so many things not touched in GW2 that were mysteries in GW1.

Actually a lot of my guild mates sadly had no idea how much lore there was in GW1. They blazed through the story without reading and skipping all the cut scenes. Whenever I bring lore up to them they respond at best with "What the hell are you talking about? This game has a story?" So I'm asking you what's the point of thousands of speech bubbles when at least 50% of the players don't read them at all. I believe you that GW2 has a lot less pop-up texts, but you know what it has? A truck load of voice acting. And I think this is a much better way to convey the lore to the average player.
This. This times a thousand. I've seen a lot new faces pop up with GW2 in the interest of lore compared to GW1's interest in lore. Mind you I didn't play at release, but out of morbid curiosity I browsed the oldest threads on Guru1 and GWO forums once I found them.

I'm among those who at first could be counted as those who didn't know the game had lore. Then I was told about Guru1, and I stumbled upon Druid's Overlook, I read and I became fascinated with the lore. GW1 has a lot of lore, but because its all text, people don't see it. Some folks just avoid reading it - but hearing it as well grabs their attention, and brings more people into the lore.

I think people are judging way too fast. Go look at the oldest threads on the two forums I mentioned, and see how much lore there was discussed right off the bat? Most of it on GWO until Factions focused on the mursaat - if not that then its all about studying the runes and structures (basically, archeology). And most of the earliest Guru lore threads didn't start until Factions was out. We haven't yet found all the lore in GW2, so how the hell can people say there's not enough of it?

They can expand on anything as much as they want, but what they shouldn't do is to throw away existing lore. Were you "bored" when Shiro appeared in Nightfall?

Correct, any fantasy race that are close enough to humans for us to identify with them are remodeled humans, or more commonly, involuntary caricatures of certain facets of humanity. That is why they either should remain as they were in GW1, or feel rather alien to us, instead of familiar.
Where are they throwing away existing lore? The only thing I could see to consider such would be the history of the Bloodstone - and depending on how it turns out, the origin of the Forgotten. They've continued on Abaddon, on the mursaat, on the charr, the Searing, the Guild Wars, and so forth - sure, we haven't gotten new Margonite, Warden, naga, etc. stuff but they're from other continents so that makes sense.

No I wasn't bored when Shiro re-appeared in Nightfall because that was still part of the same storyline; the storyline ended with Nightfall, and in Nightfall Shiro wasn't the primary focus whereas that's what you're seeming to want in GW2 - for the primary focus to remain on the mursaat and demons.

And by "remain as they were in GW1" you mean "hold no depth, culture, or quality making the only uniqueness to them their appearance and name"? Because if so, no thank you.

#2120978 Dungeons are breaking again.

"And here we are again folks, in the middle of the Tyrian's Assembly savana. While sneaking upon some users nearby, our team managed to capture some rare footage of some almighty white-knights, in their natural habitat. An enraged user, Whine the Pooh, created a pointless topic in the very top of this section. How doomed he is, when he finds out, that he is surrounded by foes.
Slowly, the white-knights lurk toward their prey, one by one. A brutal scene, savagery in it's paragon. Defenseless, Whine the Pooh is no match against "If you're so good, why don't you make it yourself?" attack, used by the white-knights.

And that's all for today! We'll have a look at the "Hall of Heroes" next week, to find out who, among it's users, have the bigest e-peen! Until then."

And just to end this non sense: You don't need to be a mechanic to be able to make a complaint about your broken car.

#2119229 why so much negativity

Posted Runkleford on 15 December 2012 - 07:12 PM

So a thread to complain about the complainers? Ironic.

Anyway, it's not fair to lump everyone who has issues with the game in the same boat as the ones who have NOTHING but hate against the game. I've had my fair share of run ins with a few people who do nothing but make up every little thing bad and wrong about the game. Heck, I was considered a fanboi.

But just because some people have serious issues with some recent changes does not make them "negative" or "horrible". That type of categorization makes some of you just as bad as the typical crappy community that you're bashing because you can't seem to be able to differentiate between criticism and just plain trolling negativity. I've seen a few here who are SO pro GW2 that they have to defend against every single criticism as though the game is completely perfect. That's just as bad as the constantly negative posters here.

It's threads like these that helps create a hostile environment for anyone who wants to make constructive criticisms so all that's left is hostility and hyperbole. There's already too much negativity out there, why alienate those who actually like the game but have some issues with it?
