post #7401 of 10385


I decided to kit myself out now I'm lvl80 tongue.gif been sitting back hoping to get the right armour drop by chance but I see it doesn't really work like that biggrin.gif
Now I just need to get my jewelery up to scratch, will need to work on my crafting for that I guess, then I can put some sigils or w/e on my armour.

Well unfortunately Digicidal was right.

I quit playing with my first toon at just level 27, because ***every single 25-35 zone on my server*** was completely broken ***for at least a week***

Literally nobody on the server levels 25-35 was able to level, for at least a week. From what I understand, literally hundreds of people on my server simply quit playing altogether due to this.

To be clear, and I think was intentionally done by "exploiters or "hackers:" Every heart, skill point CHALLENGE, and event, in all the level 25-35 zones, was completely bugged and unplayable.

The one ***single*** level 25-35 event that was working was being monopolized by a MASSIVE group of botters. And don't gimme the argument that I can "go level up in lower level zones" etc etc.

I have absolutely no desire to backtrack to low level zones when I'm just level 27 -- that's the ******* opposite of "progression"

Please don't pollute this thread with your misery-loves-company scenarios. You quit, well fine, I didn't. One of the reasons I steer away from official forums is the incessant whining and armchair developers. Please don't bring that here. Quit and leave it well off alone.

Well I just went and bought all the sigils too:p A nice cheap exotic set of Undead now my armour is good enough to do for now:p I still need crafting to fit one onto my staff (bought a nice exotic staff too:D) And some jewelery because mine sucks I'll probably just buy that too! Making money seems pretty easy now at least ^^

on other note, is it really that ludicrous to await that a game titled "Guild wars" has properly functioning Wars between Guilds xD ???

I'm pretty sure (if it wasn't in this thread, it was on gw2guru) that "Guild Wars" is based upon the historical event the "Guild Wars" which took place just a few years prior (and just into, depending on your definition of a cessation of a war) Guild Wars: Prophecies.

The actual Guild Battles were a feature of PvP and a continuation of the wider conflict which drew nations against each other. In 250 years, guilds have become more cooperative than conflicting. Though I'm sure that a long time ago (which means it may not happen until an expansion) they wanted to reintroduce guild halls. I'm sure with that, guild battles will make a comeback. They just announced tourneys so I know they've got ideas planned for the pvp people.

Again, there's only so much that can be done so fast. Disregarding the recent discussion a company of roughly 200 people needs to:
1) Fix bugs!
2) Control Bots!
3) Create new content.
4) Balance content.
5) Appease the mob?
6) Market.

They have teams but there's only so much so many people can do at once in a given time frame. Considering how much they like to change their ideas before settling with one, I don't expect a few things to be added for a while. Its not that I don't expect them, its that I don't expect them any time soon.

I'm more excited for Halloween now, besides its midterms and I was supposed to be writing an essay just now buttkick.gif

Not to engage in a flame-war with fan-boys here, but... ^THIS! smile.gif

I'll be the first to admit that a game isn't what I could ever dream of calling either 'useful' or 'necessary' - however, it's what they do for a living. I also write software for a living (albeit software that no one outside of a few insurance adjusters and state employees will ever use) and I'm going to have to agree with this statement completely. If I or my team ever released software that had as many issues in basic functional mechanics as I've seen in GW2... you can bet that either they would be looking for jobs or I would be. When I was independent and owned my own shop - something that had significant functional issues would have never been released to the end user to begin with (or in the few cases where a client kept saying they'd rather have it NOW rather than DONE WELL, I voluntarily delivered it at no cost until the problems were fixed)..

I am thinking Microsoft here, maybe ME, 2000, or VISTA?

I do have a family to support & actual responsibilities in real life - so I only have a couple of hours every few days to spend playing a game - and this is the only game that I play (or planned on playing - as was GW1). I'm an "old gamer" - i.e. I had an Atari 2600 when it was brand new, hosted LANs when IPX and BNC was considered a 'current' network topology, and Doom had 'the most amazing graphics EVARRR'... so this is my 'vacation' if you will - since my work rarely affords me enough time to take a real one right now. I simply don't have the time to spend an hour or two going from server to server to find out if that version of the skill point is bugged or not - that skill point might become my only in-game accomplishment all week!

If all goes well with one of the big contracts we're finishing up right now... then I should have a few months with almost nothing to do but play games, work on my house, and maybe go to Fiji for a couple of weeks... But at the moment I'm left with enjoying screenshots from other players in this thread, more than I am actually playing the game I paid for... SWEET! thumb.gif

I hear you, man. I'm in my 40s, have kids, etc... That means I only have a couple hours daily for me to level. I also had to wait for some events to get fixed to clear an area. I'm on Fort Aspenwood and haven't seen as much broken as you've seen.

As for CallSignVega's original complaint, I'd like to throw my two cents in:

I've read his posts and followed his builds for quite some time now. I've always known him to be an intelligent, observant, and detail oriented person. I would wager that whatever he said at the GW2 Forums, it wasn't as harsh as was implied by you guys. I don't recall reading that he received a ban letter or anything from Anet, so I wonder, too, if his experience isn't just poor timing with server issues.

Look guys, the game is broken. It's getting fixed. Yes they have been working on it for a while. God, I know. Hell, I remember thinking that the Factions release would allow us to play Centaurs. But for all that, I choose to be patient and find other ways to entertain myself. I also sympathize with CallSign. I understand that he loves him some PvP and WvW was supposed to be the Grand Daddy of PvP. I personally haven't spent much time there, but I'd be mad too if my enemy was invisible. Hell, come to think of it, the other night in PvE the monsters WERE invisible. That sucked. However it turned out that it had something to do on my end. After a reboot all was well.

CallSignVega, please don't give up. It'd be a shame to let all that hardware of yours not be used for GW. DiGiCiDe, please consider coming back to the game in a while. All in all, I have found the content to be a BLAST. Most fun I've had in an MMO ever.

One night three of us decided to bumrush our way up the hill through the Centaur fortress to the Skill Challenge at the top. Mob density was more than I had seen elsewhere. It was impossible not to ag less than 4 or 5 horsies. Once or twice I had to stop and help revive the characters with me. Once I almost went down too. When we finally reached the top I felt like I had achieved something, that I had had all my skills tested, usage timing, dodge timing, heal timing, being aware of my surroundings. I was on the edge of my chair, gripping my mouse like it was going to fly out of my hand, and grinning like a fool.

I found myself also wondering if the game I had been waiting for all these years was letting me down. I thought about quitting angry. But I stuck it out. I think part of it is that I game with my friends from previous MMOs and GW1; and, we are laid back and sometimes just have fun hanging out and trying out different dye combinations. Part of it too is that I know that Anet is constantly working to make adjustments. Part of it is that no other MMO has ever given me this much fun.

Well, several days into the game, I have to say I am increasingly getting worried about the changes in the skill choices.

As a necro, just looking @ the tree yields really few skills/builds I am intersted in. The weapon based skills are all pretty boring as well, but livable I suppose.

On the upside the world is a HUGE improvement on GW1, graphically, interactively, in terms of detail, etc etc.
The movement needed in fighting (as opposed to typical MMO static or basic kiting) is also pretty awesome, if sometimes annoying to get used to.

I am really looking forward to how this game pans out in several years. Eye of the north was a totaly different game from vanilla GW, so I imagine in terms of end game content and skill/item choice big things are in store for GW.
I just dont't want to wait lol.
