    They buckled under the pressure and nerfed the thief. Still, good thiefs don't spam HS. I still think they need to look at the Guardian, its the only class that can be very defensive and still output decent damage.

    Thanks, I'd not know this stuff considering their complete desire to keep players in the dark unless they go for a scavenger hunt for information.

    Are we going to make every game's minor game updates "news" now? Or just GW2 since it's a hot topic this month?

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    Completely false.

    Almost every class can build defensively and still pump out decent damage, I roll defensively built Guardian's with a shout based defensive Warrior build every day. They cannot out-attrition my build.

    Guardian is highly overrated, mostly due to the staying power of a defensive build against someone running an offensive build, which applies to all classes as a whole.

    Top tourney teams are running with support thieves, because of the amazing utility they can bring to the table and there ability to bunker down a point almost indefinitely if played well.

    Mesmers and Necros can both build defensively and remain amazingly offensive at the same time, Necro more so than Mes if the Necro knows his stuff.

    I definitely have to disagree and chalk that statement up to inexperience.

    Is someone holding a gun to your head, forcing you to view the thread?

    If the answer is no then you should probably just be quiet and fade into the shadow silently.

    I suggest you change your World, move to other just to complete your skill challenge , as on other servers it might/can work. Then, after you've complete it, change your world back! Is still free to change worlds and is instant!

    Good luck :)

    Um... the wiki isn't advertised about patch notes, they aren't publicized for people to know about patch notes or quickly see it, but rather hidden away. As for the comment about the link...

    Um.... if its right off in the open, what would laziness have to do with anything? It would be right there to see. My point is it is NOT out in the open. The closest thing to updates is the left bit but much of that is just articles which is mostly propaganda stuff (Which is fine, games are alowd to do that). Most recent patch I did today and no news story about that at all.

    I don't need to be quite. It's a legitimate question. If you don't like the question, then you should probably just be quiet and fade into the shadow silently.

    I play in tourneys too buddy. The premades are starting to bring two guardians to one point and cause all sorts of havok agaisnt more folks. Yes, they aren't OP to the point of you can't kill them. I believe they are too good at dishin out damage when speced defensively than most other classes.

    Every day? Yesterday's "news" was a post one developer made on the GW2 forums. (plus it was pretty insulting to every "responsible" company in existance)

     

    Are we going to have "news" when Ghostcraweler posts on the WoW forums?

     

    If you can't see the bias I don't know what to tell you.

    Click "state of the game update" thing, even though it doesnt appear to be updated it does everyday theres a patch.

    People are calling you lazy  because most have figured  it out.

    And a valid criticism, but does this mean Guardians are too good, or the other clases are too suck?

    I bet when Ghostcrawler says something interesting they will post it.  I also bet when MoP releases we'll hear a lot more from them.  Are you going to complain about that too?

    There's a lot of gaming news and blog updates on the news feed.  What are they supposed to put there?

    Yeah it was pretty often back when it first released. People were saying the exact same thing you are now. It's nothing new and it'll stop eventually.

    ... how was it pretty insulting?

    They think responsible MMORPG companies give lots of content for free.

    I'm assuming they mean free as in 'without charging an additional fee for said content', as that would be the most logical way to read it (Otherwise, GW2 wouldn't be giving 'free' content, since you have to buy the game in the first place)

    Lots of MMO game companies give free content updates (As opposed to an expansion).

    They're all responsible.

    What's wrong with that?
