    ACT 2 is awsome!

    me chillin with the Mad King!

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    This minigame of Villagers vs ghosts is really fun. But I can't enter the other one.. something rumble.

    I'm also afraid i won't be able to finish clocktower =P

    yea thought reapers rumble was maybe for the next act but it does say it's part of ACT2 i can't get in either... the tower is a PAIN... all the players doing it at the same time makes it way harder...

    but yea the lunatic event is fun.. i ALMOST stayed alive the whole time got turned with 57 seconds to go GRR

    I love GW2 actually though... But they need to fix performance... Invisible enemies in wvw and poor rendering is killing it..
    i get double the FPS and rendering easily on ps2...

    i gave up on the tower for now ill try tommorow.. i think it wouldn't be to bad but running with 10 or so people I can't see all the jump spots quick enough it seems and end up missing.. oh well ill give it another go in the morning.. but yea the events have been great in this ACT also the scavenger hunt for the pages was also done much better for this ACT

    Eh clock tower wasn't too bad, definitely the hardest puzzle and it took me about 40 minutes to get it down but once I did I did it a few times in a row, sadly after the first time all you get are trick or treat bags.

     

    Some guildies gave up on it though and I laughed at their frustration.

     

    Reapers was indeed bugged but after a while I managed to get into it, although I didnt really like it all that much, ghost event was more fun IMO, me and a friend found an awesome spot to hide and after a while that got boring so we just started becoming the first people to be the ghosts everytime and just go hunting.

    reapers is a variation on dota. it was ok but I agree that ghosts vs villagers is more exciting. Still there seems to be so much content to do.. ANet outdid themselves. Even on official forums people complain less.
     
    Btw. We can test new FoV settings.. game seems so much better without bugged fov on widescreen <3

    Honestly the best holiday event ever. Is so much to do, I can't get it all done. :)

    i love the events, i went at the tower for 12 hours then did take a break and with other 4 hours i finally did it!

    I was disappointed with act 1, it seemed just an achievement hunt. But act 2 made up for this. The events in the explorable areas are a lot of fun and the labyrinth is amazing :) Still have to finish that bloody clocktower though. I hope at some point to start with just other Asure, so I can actually see my toon amongst the other players :p

    I'm absolutely impressed by their take on Halloween. Can't wait to see what they'll do for Christmas now that they have to follow up on this.

    Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
    Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.
    .........
    Magic without Technology is fantasy.
    Magic without Nature is formless and useless.
    .........
    Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
    Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.
