Yesterday ArenaNet did a Q&A webcast, in which Costume Brawling was described as a really fun activity to participate in. After jumping into brawling today for 5 minutes, I was left wondering when the fun part is coming. After a good while longer, it still never came.
The costumes are cute and all, but you just stand around and spam all the action keys for that costume type, keeping everything on cooldown. There is no real skill involved, no strategy, no penalties. You don't take damage and you can't be killed (just knocked out for 5 seconds if you take enough hits). You just stand around, hit others, spam buttons, and see the Batman captions etc. BAM WHAM POW.
There are achievements for the number of people you temporarily knock out, but it seems more of a pointless test to see how much someone can suffer through. It is not really very fun or challenging. Getting into costume and watching yourself /dance for 2 hours seems more entertaining. Is there something I'm missing?
