The main issue for me is the reactor was crap but since they have already made it kiel is likely to be the winner. why make new content when they can just put in stuff thats made already :/ People do realise the WP's are only cheaper for 4 weeks right and its not a lifetime thing. then we are stuck with a reactor in fotm. I dont understand why people dont want to experience new things :/

You never know we could get both eventually that would be nice :)

You do realise the reactor will new content too right?

We have the remains of the base level in game ATM but the reactor was essentially a huge floating structure like rata sum, we see a bit of it with the bonus event after fire ele but at that point most of it has already been destroyed.

I'm voting Kiel for two reasons, CoE is my fav dungeon in the game and I'm looking forward to a fractal of similar nature for the lore, mechanics and aesthetics.

Second,  I honestly don't feel the Abaddon fractal can live up to the hype. It will be unlikely you will play as the gods taking him down (and if they did that the fight would be much less epic than it sounds, just look at the zhaitan fight). Most likely it will be playing as forgotten fighting a few margonites or something. I would love to see Orr in its original state but as the whole thing occurred in the crystal desert area that is unlikely.

If they had specifically said the fractal would be the sinking of the temple of abaddon then i'd be more interested. But if we had an orr fractal i'd much rather see the events leading to the sinking of orr instead.

Its strange since the research into people's votes on gw2 reddit and gw2guru i have done shows that most are voting for evon and somehow kiel is still in the lead :/ seems a bit off to me.

Because, forums are and will always be an absolute minority.  Zing!

the fact that people are picking cheaper WP's over abbadon is soo stupid we could be losing out on some of the greatest content this game has had! and for what some stupid reactor :/

Well, think about it for a moment.  We know EVERYTHING about the Abbadon fight, from how to why.  We know nothing about the connection of the inquest to the greater story, so people like myself are voting for that fractal to get an idea into how, what, and why.  It would at least be new information, unlike fighting Abbadon again, a fight which has been fleshed out more than enough times.

They are really keen on screwing over elementalists lately.

Yeah, the idea that our aoe is too high is laughable. When other elementalists target the area around me with their meteor shower in WvW, I sometimes just stand there and keep fighting back, particularly if I have an enemy downed (with the help of people who can actually do some damage, of course). It isn't even powerful enough to take out my squishy elementalist butt, let alone be of much concern to a warrior or guardian. Meanwhile, a thief can charge through my aoe and rip me to shreds in 3 seconds spamming Heartseeker, but they apparently need a buff. I'd love for a developer to go into WvW and see how long it takes to kill a warrior who is standing still and not fighting back with a staff elementalist.

Aoe'ing people trying to rez downed players. What an exploit that is.

This game is looking more like WoW every day with the ridiculous class imbalance always getting worse. Everyone will be playing thief and mesmer in WvW soon enough.


#2093303 Forget about Ascended gear, Has Anet been honest about anything?

Posted Desild on 23 November 2012 - 09:37 AM

I've been checking this thread since the very begining, and I've been considering everything you guys have said. From which I derived some conclusions, and even more questions. Some of you gave out pretty good points, others not so much, and there were some that made point of just refuting or dismissing our concerns for whatever undisclosed reason. As for me, I'll stick to my guns and say that Arenanet has turned into Blizzard.

I want to be objective here, but what I want to ask is, what exactly is wrong with the game?

It's too grindy you would say. Well, so was Guild Wars 1. Thousands of hours burned to trivial things like points, sweets, ectos, drinks, gemstones and minipets that thousands were compelled to collect for an arbitary reward for a future game. The Hall of Monuments thing could be considered a fiasco if you took into account the reasoning why you point out some other things as "grind". The grinding is still very present. but maybe we got savvier, and developed a resistance to it, who knows. Why was it okay in GW1 but not in GW2?

It's too hard? Maybe too easy? Well, any game can be broken with time, from Pac-man to Demon's Souls. Doesn't mean it has gotten easier, only that you mastered it. I find it hillarious in hindsight how people keep clamouring for harder and harder content but never quite recieve it, or percieve it as such because they are just that damn good at the game. Then it creates a edge between them and the lesser players who can never caught up with the "hardcore", who become insatiable for their fix of challenge and thrill.

Gear threadmill is bad. Gear threadmill is good. Oh boy, I've seen this rat chasing his tail countless times. I'm a psychologist so I should know how Skinner boxes work and how to tell one from another. Thing is, that people often forget, Skinner boxes work both ways: for pleasure and for pain.

Right now, the mice that are complaining have realised that when they press the lever, the treat they recieve is not big or tasty enough. So they complain. On the other hand, the mice that get a relief from the electric shock that is tazzing their feet are completely content at hammering their lever, and as long as they aren't experiencing pain, they won't ever complain. At all.

ArenaNet lied? Yes. And they falled into the fallacies of every company that ever produced an MMO since the history of ever. Whoever didn't saw that coming, I salute you for your incredulence. I myself did want to believe ArenaNet was different, and now I'm picking up the pieces of my shattered ego.

Quite honestly, I left WoW because I wanted to get rid of these mentalities, but it seemed I switched over the demonic Blizzard for the slightly sadistic Arenanet, and now I am back to square one. Maybe I should quit MMOs altogether, but alas, I'm a happy mouse right now, pressing my lever at a content rate. Pain or no pain. Small or big treat.

#2077850 Is GW2 in trouble?

Posted Strawberry Nubcake on 13 November 2012 - 10:48 PM

Dedicated players are people that race through all the content as fast as possible so they can live in Orr.  They tend to bore easily.  Gee, I wonder why.

A not-so-dedicated player like myself spends time playing the game.  I take my time leveling and try to experience everything the game has to offer while working towards my goals.  I have logged nearly 850 hours, have several 80s in exotic gear and I don't have a legendary yet.  I'm not bored.  I'm obviously not a dedicated player according to Anet.

If you're spelling the contraction of "You are" as "your", you're doing it wrong.


#1837444 BEWARE! Do not click "password reset" email links from Arenanet!

Posted Otagamo on 28 August 2012 - 09:58 PM

You only need the account name of someone (you can just mouse over the ingame name and see it) and then you use it in the link below:

https://account.guil.../reset-password

And done, the owner of the account will receive the reset password e-mail, nothing nefarious about it.
