To register my displeasure at ANET for abandoning its core anti-gear-treadmill philosophy with Ascended gear, I won't be logging back in to GW2 until the 19th. I invite anyone similarly dismayed by this new direction to do the same.

    See ya - been a slice.

     

    The dungeons will be permanent so there is NOTHING you can do. Stamp your feet all you want.

     

    The majority want end game - they are getting it. At least a start of it.

    if your serious about it, you should take a leaf out of the goonswarms book, when they take action, its not to stay away, its to turn up in a highly disruptive fashion, usually in a highly public and interesting way.. in game of course image

    That was tried in GW1 to the detriment of the game (the healer protests at THK for example).

    The point is, is that no matter what people complain about in forums, official ones or otherwise, it can be ignored as a 'vocal minority' thing, which often may well be the case, for it to be really taken seriously, then a massive in game protest of some kind has to take place, but yeah, no guarantees it will have the desired effect.image

    it's not really a gear treadmill. it's half a step up from the previous second runner. that's all ascended items are. they're the new second most powerful bits of gear.

    That could also be called terrorism - not a good play in my book. Just saying....

    A boycott sounds like a pretty dumb idea. You be better served sending them a very strongly worded letter.

     

    Why harm yourself (miss the event) when nobody will notice?

    Boycott more things to do in a game?

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    I prefer if we could organize a mass log in a city, like Divinity's Reach, at a pre set time, and type in chat "No to the gear carrot".

    Regardless I've stop gem purchases with real money.

    In most western countries, non violent protest is a legit part of democracy.

    you think it's a coincidence they have a free trial at the same time as a content patch?  they already have your money,  they are marketing to new people now.  and the content patch ensures the game wont be empty and the newbs see it as thriving.

    I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

    Less lag for those who will be playing and enjoying the new content?

    What you try to present as a punishement may actually be a boon, for both the players and for ArenaNET image

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    And to register my displeasure in your overraction, I'm going to boycott your boycott.  I will log in each and every day for many hours between now and 19ths.   I invite anyone similarly dismayed by this boycott to do the same.

    I will help you with this counter-boycott. I am sick of people who can't take responsability for their own actions.
