    Right now mods are very touchy about this subject so i advice just stay away from forums. I made a couple of posts, said what i wanted to say and moved on.
  • muffins89muffins89 Yakima, WAPosts: 1,306Member Uncommon

    You mean for breaking their Code of Conduct? Oh my, why would they ban you for that?

    muffins you are being over dramatic about this. We don't have all the details yet. Adding item progression isn't breaking any of their promise as far as I can recall.
  • Gaia_HunterGaia_Hunter BristolPosts: 2,818Member Uncommon

    I've posted several times, including some sayinng I was not buying gems while new item tiers are added to the game and other than having posts merged to the giant thread, nothing else happened.

    Of course my posts are reasonable and not diabrite.

    GW2 is the same it has always been, they just added endgame for those that want it, don't be selfish. You already got Tyria to explore, Personal Story, Dynamic Events, Puzzles, WvWvW, sPvP.

    Well yeah it is. I understand why they are doing it, there was a lot of criticism about hitting a dead wall at 80 aside from farming for a legendary. This looks to be adding an incentive to keep running dungeons once you are fully exotic'ed out. Whereas at the moment you only need to run it 15 times and you are done for character progression.

    I'm not annoyed, I have no doubt that the boost will be minor, but it will keep elitists happy.

    As far as I am concerned, ANet is just being a responsive company and switching to meet the markets demands. Some people like not having to grind, but I think what is proposed is a happy medium in that you can get well equipped pretty easily, but you still have progression.

  • gordiflugordiflu BarcelonaPosts: 757Member
    My question is... once players are done with this new gear progression, what? Another tier?
  • hunt4foodhunt4food Sinclairville, NYPosts: 17Member
    6 out of 6 local people I play with say the same thing the only good thing about Guild wars 2 is there sales pitch. I feel a class action suite is even possible.  These guys could sell a pile of dung to a group of hungry people wait they did.
  • XasapisXasapis VolosPosts: 5,561Member Uncommon
    It's not about being elitist, but about having no progression goals after a certain point. The rpg part of the mmorpg dictates that some sort of character advancement is needed. Perhaps not necessarily gear based, but it should be there. The achievers (who don't need to be hardcore) are bound to leave if they reach the peak of everything there is to achieve (or everything interesting in some cases).
  • Caliburn101Caliburn101 LondonPosts: 636Member

    If you feel that MMORPG have broken their own Code of Conduct by mis-applying it - kindly point out how and where.

    If you can't (and let's face it - you can't can you?) then stop wasting our collective time with threads posted for no other purpose than to draw yet more attention to the phenomenon of 'an exaggerated sense of self-entitlement'.

  • Methos12Methos12 Maladis 46Posts: 1,234Member Uncommon
    Why do we still have these threads? It's their forum, it's not a democracy. Deal with it.

    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.

    That's your opinion, his is different, a threat is there to discuss and express it.
    ANet does not want neither. Ivory tower syndrom :)

    Because in reality they know the true numbers and can't drop much lower... they have to save every fan they have left.

    They have left a lot of threadsopen for discussion, what they dont want is people who think their opinion is so much better than everyone elses opening multiple threads on the same topic and diluting the forums. Thats why they got deleted and why he was moderated, not the topic itself.

    Wouldnt that be why they are implementing gear progression?

    Oh do they?

    There may be an arguement that at the quantum level, particles can be made to act in accordance with the desires of a sentient being based on the scant evidence currently hinting at it.... but there isn't a chance THIS comment is based on any demonstrable fact.

    Now that's a reality....

    You know, there is criticism and there is just plain raging.

    I don't know how was OP thread worded, but looking at how this one is worded, no wonder they banned him. I've read many fairly offensive articles over at ANet forums and most of replies were "thank you for your feedback". Sometimes locking thread so that it doesn't derail into madness. But when someone starts creating threads over and over, threads that just inspire spite and hatred, what can you do?

    Tbh I am also a bit disappointed, beacuse reading manifesto made my dream much brighter than what is gw2 today. That being said, good things don't happen overnight. GW2 needs to grow up and maybe, jsut maybe in some 10 years time we will get what was promissed.

    Of course there are those that once they deck out their character with several different max sets for different builds move into ANOTHER CHARACTER

    Those will also be the ones going for crazy titles like GOD WALKING AMONGST MERE MORTALS (multiples of it even) or CHAMPION OF THE GODS.

    The ELITISTS won't be happy because everyone can get THESE NEW ITEMS ON THEIR OWN TIME.What the ELITISTS like is to control others, deciding who get the raid slot or the raid legendary drop first/next.

    Those ELITISTS complaining about no progression are the same that say there is no point to farm exotics because it si a small boost over rares and that said legendaries are useless because they give no boost.

    The ELITISTS don't care about progression per se, they care about restriciting others progression.

    This is the worst decision by Anet - not only the so called elitists won't come back they piss off those that could care less about a bigger number. Those already didn't much care for all the blue->green->yellow->orange business but ignored it because getting exotics isn't that hard/time consuming, now Anet increases the time requirement to get max stats (lets be honest max stats is the only thing that matter, anything else is gimping yourself).
