that was posted after the exploit was patched.
Pretty much my thought. ArenaNet really should have posted in the thread as soon as they were aware of it saying explicitly "This is an exploit, we're working to fix it, anyone who uses it risks a ban or rollback". Then anyone who made heavy use of it after a suitable grace time following the post could be perfectly justifiably permabanned.

For the rest... the intent of the permaban seems to be to remove the gains from the economy, so account rollbacks would have achieved that benefit and provided a suitable warning, deterrent and punishment for the future.

Nerfed dropped rate might influence that too.
Or the fact more and more people got much gold (it's a video game, there is a constant influx of gold) and want cool dyes for their characters.
Its actually opposite, each fractals group gets lots of cores for example, that should have lower the price of lodestones but it didn't. This have nothing to do with buyers. Groups that are monopolizing market dictate price its simple as that. You cant effect it in any way. U put low price? They just buy it off. What happen with new items that come in market? U think someone put abyss dye for 5g now that is 15g+ or something. This method is making groups very rich is all I can say. And you can do nothing to stop that. Only one who can is anet if they want.

edit @Reikou: Sorry but you didn't understand I guess. I'll write you the part that is key to this: "but finding the loop that PRODUCES more and more items in a cycle is an exploit." People produce items = produce gold out of nothing in short time = bug not intentded = you should report = don't abuse it = ban if u do. I'm not gonna respond to you again.

Incorrect.

You've all fairly well shown that you're divided into two camps, so it doesn't seem like there's anything left to be done here. Especially since the OP has already declared victory.

Thread posting 101: Threads are for discussion, not for stating your opinion and then shouting NO, YOU'RE WRONG for 9 pages. That kind of thing belongs on a blog, not on a forum.


#2097324 Chris Whiteside "Ask Me Anything" Highlights

Posted Greibach on 26 November 2012 - 10:16 PM

It just seems to me like they aren't sure who to target for their metrics. If you look at the players that have 1000+ hours logged already, those who may have been farming non-stop or manipulating the markets, the costs of these ascended items are high, but not compared to the wealth they have. When you compare it to someone like myself, who has about 300 hours, they look awfully steep. When I see these statements about "wanting minimal grind" after introducing items with objectively superior stats that take 300 ecto + other mats to attain each, I have to imagine that they are panicking about the number of players that are rolling in money. In my opinion, this is a poor group to look at. Those who want to achieve vast wealth will always do so; you can't keep them at bay without enacting measures that cripple anyone else, so I don't believe that they should be looking to them for what they determine as the baseline. If they want content to be virtually unattainable for the vast majority of players, that's one thing, but their stated goals disagree with that. There is a disconnect somewhere.


#2094962 Hey Ascended Haters, What's Your First Ascended Item?

Posted Daesu on 25 November 2012 - 12:17 AM

None, since I am an Ascended hater, why would I have an Ascended item?

I will always be in FOTM level 1 as I have stopped playing FOTM altogether.  I will be forced to quit this game sooner or later as I have decided not to participate in their gear grind.  Bring it on, ArenaNet!

The people who are sticking with guildwars are those who knew what they wanted when they came.

I am a fan of WvW and i still have much fun when i do it.

....though i wish arenanet paid more attention to that fact and gave us proper rewards....

Nop they are not.

I came to a game that promised me no gear grind for TOP stats armor , just for looks...

Wait , what do i see now? Gear grind at its best. WoW style.

So nop , people that came hoping Anet would keep their promises like me are also on the quitting stage now.

by far the worst thing are the crybabies on the forum,who can't find the uninstall button.

What annoys me on the forums are people who can only see two extremes, "either love the game unreservedly or GTFO".

People are allowed to critique a game and still enjoy it, and the point of Tyian Assembly is to discuss the game in general, the good and the bad, though I would say some people go about 'discussion' the wrong way.

i still dont understand what the problem is! Gambling is bad? Dont buy keys!!! Having costumes for sale is bad? Dont buy them!!!!

i bought some bag space, some bank tabs and the left overs i spent on keys a while ago. And in the future i will buy more keys because i have tons of chests. I will buy keys because i love this game and i dont mind spending some money in the cash store to support it. If i see some cool looking armor or something in the cash store then maybe ill throw some money at it too. I dont mind because im not being forced to pay 15 bucks a month to play this game.

You guys are labelling this as gambling with an evil undertone on it and thats not the case! Its no different from Mcdonalds saying you have a chance to win a free bigmac with every meal. Or starbucks or Tim hortons saying you have a 1 in 4 chance of winning a free coffee with every coffee purchase you make. Its really no different then a friggin raffle! you buy tickets with a "chance" of winning the prize. Would you feel entitled to be given that prize because you spent the most on raffle tickets? That doesnt make sense in that situation so it doesnt make sense in this situation either.
I love this game too...and will support Anet from buying items in the store or just buying gems to turn to gold..but I will never buy a key or spend any money on an Item that is RNG...not that gambling is bad (which I dont agree this is gambling) but I just want to know what Im buying....Put armors, clothes, ID'd Dyes and things of the sort on the Gem store and  I buy them up.....but not one cent on RNG.


#2043787 ANet's handling of Halloween has been nothing but disappointment

Posted Minion on 26 October 2012 - 07:04 AM

I'm surprised no one's comparing Valve's crate system in TF2. Most things from the crates weren't cosmetic, but sidegrades, but more importantly, the drop rates and the short list of items you could get from each one. Maybe black Lion chests need categorising and limiting. The ratio in drops of keys:chest is staggeringly poor, which basically forces you to buy keys or have over 9000 chests in your storage. In TF2, I would play maybe 80 hours a week and get two or three crates in that time, if not less. Due to their semi-rarity, you'd feel more inclined to buy a key. The logic works something like: "Oh cool, a crate! I guess I can buy one key; I could get a rare weapon :D" as opposed to "Oh look, another crate... Like Hell if you think I'm buying one key every 10 minutes."

Because "smart" in this case means "not supporting A.Net".

Nobody is saying that they hate Anet, they just hate the design decisions that are being implemented. We all supported Anet financially from the very beginning, be it buying GW1 expansions, from telling friends to buy GW2 and buying GW2 ourselves, and continuing to support the company through the gem store. But the moment a game decision is disagreed on, suddenly we don't support Anet? What is this mentality of having to agree 100% religiously on everything they do game design wise?

Your logic is like saying someone is unpatriotic to their country because they don't agree with their government's policies.


#2041221 When did Guild Wars players turn in to such whiners?

#2041099 When did Guild Wars players turn in to such whiners?

Posted Shadowrose on 24 October 2012 - 11:49 PM

Whining about whiners is fine as long as the whining is about the people who whines with no reason, because it's unfair to generalize all the whining as a whole. Gotta keep in mind that people whine in the first place because they just want this game to be better while you whine because some people don't share your low expectations and aren't satisfied as easily.

Stop whining.
