#2351449 Heading to ArenaNet

Posted davadude on 20 February 2015 - 05:45 PM

Nugget!  Enjoy the trip.

If you get a chance, can you ask them how they plan to roll out new features that also affect features from the core game, such as Guild Halls?  Will they be locked for players without HoT, or available to all?

Okay I'm peeing myself laughing. Who designs these skins and what goes on in their brain???

"Let's fight the Elder Dragons! But just wait for me to get my ANVIL backpack...you know... for combat and stuff..."

You obviously don't realize the glorious military tradition of Anvilania.

#2335562 Honest opinion on GW2 - for a new player possibly

Posted Arkham Creed on 15 August 2014 - 03:04 AM

View PostI, on 15 August 2014 - 02:45 AM, said:

well if you like dungeons and raids, gw2 is absolutely terrible at these.

every dungeon there is some cheap tactic to use and most people just run through the dungeons, plus there are only 9 or so.

there is no end-game

Lies and slander. For one while there are nine dungeons total, each has at least four paths to take, leading to markedly different experiences. This makes for at least thirty-six different possible dungeon scenarios to play. As for end-game. No raids or endless gear progression treadmill, so if that is your narrow opinion of what counts as end-game than yeah, but obviously if there was nothing to do at max level nobody would be playing. So that is a boldfaced lie.

OK...may not be popular opinion...but LS:S2 is going well, at least for me. So I am hopeful that this is more of the same, Devs listening and getting some good improvements in that many have been asking for.

Various color Tags in WvW is fantastic. I'm most interested in what is included in the blogs in week 2 of the reveal.


Posted ZCKS on 13 August 2014 - 04:20 PM

Agree. LS2 is a major improvement over 1.

And from the changes previewed so far is does indeed look like they are listening to player feedback.

So here's hoping they make allot more traits on par or nearly so with the meta, then proceed to make more of the utility & elite skills worth using.

#2332424 Is anyone else sick of Sylvari?

Posted Senatic on 16 July 2014 - 08:20 PM

Sylvari as a whole are somehow linked to the elder dragons, if you thought the story would be about anything else going into this game you were naive. The Sylvari are gonna be a large part of the overall plot for quite some time, if not all the way through. Get down with it or quit the game tbh. It's not gonna change no matter what we think about it, the story has been set and started already.

Just started playing today's patch and this is the second dialog I saw. Maybe it will get clarified later, but if this turns out to be another chapter of Trahearne's story, I feel that a good portion of the playerbase will be alienated to the point of no return...

On the other hand, maybe he gets killed before we get to him :)

Again, I haven't completed this portion of living story, so I may edit this post once I've played through it.

Well seeing as how Trehearne is the leader of the pact and they get attacked in this episode it makes sense that he would get involved. I don't see him having a huge part to play as he is vulnerable to this dragons corruption.

And personally I feel all the rage thrown at him is overblown and unfounded. Every GW game has a character like him. Rurik, Togo, Kormir, Ogden just to name a few of the mains.

Why the shock and anger over Anets well entrenched plot devices confuzzles me honestly. Did you REALLY expect to be "THE HERO"? we the players have NEVER been the hero in any GW game, the story has always been about someone else. That is how its always been and it works well for the lore writers.

#2331158 The Gates of Maguuma

Posted MCBiohazard on 08 July 2014 - 07:57 AM

In the strictest sense of the term, GW2 is still high fantasy since it's still Tyria and plays by a different set of rules than our reality .I'm not going to get into the semantics of it because that wasn't my point. My point was that you simply didn't like the execution or style this time around. And you haven't contradicted my point with your rebuttal. That's not a critical rant, that's Super I Don't Like It Wars. Which is fine if you acknowledge your bias but when you just start letting it color your opinions instead of actually getting at the narrative issues that put you off on a somewhat objective level, you start to not have a point anymore. I've elaborated my own issues with the GW2 narrative in several other threads, it's not like it's a black and white issue here with liking/hating the new lore.

Also, what soul? I guess from the examples you listed, you prefer action trailers to concept art. Which might be an opinion with some critical weight if you actually articulated why (preferring in-game cutscenes as opposed to the personal story dialogue windows, for example, though that's not even a valid complaint this time around, they used in-game scripting and cutscenes for the entire story instance) but you didn't go there, you cut straight to "I don't like it" and that's not helpful even as a negative rant because nobody knows exactly why you don't like it outside of a vague "I hate cartoons" motif.

Posted AsgarZigel on 25 June 2014 - 08:48 AM


That better be what it is...   ...but the line "unlock the story content" makes me think it's just instances and NOT a public Region

...I really hope I'm wrong about that b/c this region has been the only thing I've been waiting for since I gave up in disgust at their awful Q.A. & treadmill

They already confirmed that there will be both story instances that use the new story journal unlock system and permanent open world content for everyone. With the teasers a new map is pretty much confirmed, or at least it would be PR suicide to not add a new map immediately after all that teasing.

The only question is how big it will be and how much there will be to do in it. A full map would be very surprising to me at this point, I think it's more likely that it gets slowly expanded over time.

Posted davadude on 24 June 2014 - 01:58 PM

Well, I was expecting a lot of the same... but not such an amazing trailer!  I'm hoping the gates are a tongue-in-cheek reference to what we've been hoping for!

EDIT:  The transition in the video was kinda bad... it looked as if Rox and crew just bombed the sanctum.  Also, thanks Skye, thread hi-jacked and front-paged.

From what I have seen, nothing comes "soon" in GW2.  :)
