#2127387 Most adorable Asura contest!

I'm glad female Asura got the feminine version of the wintersday clothing. It looks adorable. Here's Zirrie, looking either cold or unimpressed.

#2307958 Will Arena Net just let Guild Wars 2 die?

Posted Arkham Creed on 19 March 2014 - 12:17 AM

I know how absurd that sounds, and there was a time not long ago I would have been among the first to dismiss it. This morning in fact. But things that have happened and been said as of this newest patch have made me not so sure anymore. In fact I now fear that Arena Net has “gone bullfrog.” Here is what I mean; there is an old saying based on an experiment someone once conducted. It goes as follows.

If you toss a bullfrog into a pot of boiling water it will recognize the danger and jump out. But if you toss a bullfrog into a pot of cool water and slowly bring it to a boil it will just sit there….and sit there….and sit there….until it dies from the heat.

This is my fear for Arena Net. We’ve all heard of those interviews wherein this or that developer states that they are comfortable with the game as it is and the drop off in the player base is expected and within acceptable levels. But really I’m not sure of that. Now I know the obvious response to that is the old arguments about how Arena Net knows more than we do, and has all these statistics and metrics and such. A nice ideal to be sure, but I’ve seen far too many issues from the trivial to the significant be completely ignored for far too long not to be worried. I myself have an account issue with outstanding support ticket since November. And that isn’t factoring in the many known and often complained about in-game issues.

But that isn’t the worst part. Based on statements made by developers and community managers have led many on the official forums to believe something….well, frightening. Arena Net is so complacent that they are actually planning to allow the game to stagnate in its current form with no planned updates of any kind until sometime in July. At the earliest. Can the game really survive that? Should it? Should a game all but abandoned by its developers really drag out for so long? I mean it isn’t like we have an abundance of content to tide us over; the game was old and stale before Arena Net started giving us all those temporary Living World updates. Can WvW season two and Fractals alone really keep the community happy for that long? What about PvE players? What about those who just don’t enjoy Fractals? Screw us, right?

But now I find myself thinking something I never would have thought I’d be thinking this time last year or the year before. I want Guild Wars 2 to fail. I want it to die before July. I want the servers to shrink and fade as the vast majority of the community abandons the game. Not because I don’t like it, not out of spite, and not because I want to see it die. Just the opposite really; I want Arena Net to fight for it. I want them struggle and work and earn every player they have, and earn back every players they’ve lost. I don’t want Arena Net to sit by complacently allowing the game to die; I want them to take action. I know my opinion doesn’t count for much on these forums or in this life, but I don’t care. At this point I think it’s time to boil the bullfrog.

After playing ESO beta I really started to appreciate GW2 art/graphics/detail again. I have been playing ele lately so I got her phoenix set and new staff (and I am almost broke ingame after getting bank inventory stack expansions with gold).

Getting Festive

This one is really nice. Usually when people dye their armors festive-like, it looks awful. But this looks amazing.

Shame the weapons can't be dyed. You could try and match the colours of the weapons with your armour. Your norn would be even better. I already like her, though... "The Jade Ranger".

Spoiler

Thanks! I got every weapon I use on her in jade, GS, Long Bow, Sword, Axe & Warhorn etc, as honestly the more I look at them the more beautiful they get. Really loving them! She could be perhaps the Luxon Ranger :D

She's a bit different now, I have been long stuck on dyes and I don't think it's possible to match that armour to her weapons in terms of dyes. There's no dyes that I have been able to find that gives that kind of glacial green. So her armour is now a deep brown oh and I actually made her skin a bit more tanned :)

#2264882 How do human players feel about their cultural armor...

Posted Neo Nugget on 27 November 2013 - 06:13 AM

Classic > Flames imo.

I'm not overly fond of the precedent it might set, but seeing as I prefer the original, which is still race specific, I don't mind it as much.

That would explain her b****y attitude :P

But yes, whilst they're working on the living story, they have said that they're working on things in the background which they're not ready to reveal yet. So hopefully *crosses fingers* we'll have an update as big as an expansion. I wouldn't even mind paying for such an update to be honest.

I will not pay for these shitty LS updates, however I WILL pay for a friggen expansion. The LS is beyond boring.
