In Topic: Will you play again?

05 February 2015 - 09:31 AM

I would probably not. I played GW2 for 2+ years and I don't think the expansion is enough to get me back. I am confused why are people that exited, i felt let down while watching the lifestream.

They said "group content", that doesn't mean more dungeons, guild raids.
They said GvG, but it appears to be 5vs5 and we call that sPVP.
They said specializations, but there is only one per class, that's just new set of skills, there is no choice between different specializations that makes your warrior, or whatever, unique.
One new class - good.
New race? Nope.
New personal story? Nope, new living story.
New WvW borderland. Wait, only one? Shouldn't there be at least two so we can have 3 different borderlands?
sPVP get's new game mode. One.
New types of weapons? Nope.
Expanding all weapons to all classes? Barely, as far as we know one weapon is unlocked to different classes via specializations.

Yea, there are interesting things in the expansion, but not what I was expecting to see.  Also it appears GW1 had an amazing expansions.

It's not like they have invented the wheel, but they could have done simple menus like in 99.99% of the video games today, but they did take it not one, but ten steps further. Anyway.

I wouldn't count on any dates CiG puts out, the dog fighting module (arena commander) was delayed 6-7 months from the initial date alone.
Also the quality they are trying to achieve never stops to rise, i am wondering if they are trying to bite more than they can chew. This Friday they released a design post about the user interface, it's insane.

Anyway, in 2016 the game would probably be in beta version so it may be a good time to join.

In Topic: what do you do when you reach 80 (retirement)

20 January 2015 - 05:19 PM

Well, I find it amusing that the responses of people are the same as after launch, yet still they keep being here.

I played since the head start and got my first lvl 80 in around 2-3 weeks. After that i leveled only one more character. I played regularly until this September when i just got bored, also became more busy after that.
What i did?
-100% map exploration, the world design is very appealing to me, there are a lot of hidden stuff worth exploring for.
- All the dungeons, all stories and paths.
- Getting the best gear - ascended (and something legendary)
- All Jumping puzzles and activities, the later are pretty fun, i have no idea why people do not play them all that often.
- Fractals of the mists. Sunk a lot of time in them, like them a lot.
- Guild. Find an active one. Those are the people you can play activities with, do JP, enter sPVP and eventually...
- WvWvW This is what i have been doing for the last year. Tons and tons of it. All you need is a WvW guild. Public commanders are not that awesome to roam with, i am not sure how WvW organization goes on other servers, but on Gandara is good.
- You could do Living story, it's not bad, but not even close to what good single player RPG could offer you.
- What I did when I had no idea what direction to take? Opened the achievement tab, went to exploration category and started hunting every achievement there.
B.t.w. Legendary is(or was?) too much work, I wouldn't recommend it for casual player.

Sure, you might not find the stuff i did that appealing to you, but i would say that 2 years for one game is more than enough. Makes sense to be bored. =]

In Topic: Can I add to almost 4 year old RAM, and do I need to?

03 November 2014 - 05:15 PM

I have a question on this matter , but don't really want to open a new topic.
I have two sticks of RAM of 4GB each. If i want to get more memory, so what is more beneficial - get another one or two sticks or replace the ones I have with 2x8 gb ?
Since you said something about CPU and MB using tri/dual-channel  ram and that sounded kinda like what I was wondering.

I have a GigaByte 970A-UD3p /ddr3/Sata3/PCI-E s.AM3+  Motherboard
and 2x Kingston DDR3 4GB 1600 MHz  RAM.
