  • Guild Wars 2 - The Demons of Bastion of the Penitent - MMORPG.com

    Haven't done any Raids and not really interested in them. After all, it is the Raids in other games that bring out the worst in the Elitist players.

    At least they are trying, more than I can say for most companies.

    How can something so popular and highly requested be a taboo topic?

    This is what bothers me about the development of Guilds Wars 2 and the decisions the developers take. They have never been about what players want or request, in the forums or with specific feedback requests. It has been the same years ago, shortly after the release and it's still the case today. Oddly enough the developers make changes to accommodate e-sports requests that impact the game for everyone - so is the case with projectiles from auto-attacks (1st skill in most cases).



    My most hated thing about this game is how blind the developers are towards what their players want. These dps meters have been long asked for and since ArenaNet refuses to add them, players have to resort to 3rd party tools that may endanger the safety of their accounts. Such meters may prove useful to raiding guilds while at times it may even be a thing of preference. Why can't the developrs accommodate such requests is beyond me. Either way and regardless of the outcome of this I've learnt that Guild Wars is no longer the game for me, mainly because of its development.



    DPS Meters are tools of the elitist players. I have played games with players using them and in 90% of them use it to discriminate against other players.

    In GW2, DPS meters would not measure the biggest impact damage in the game, namely conditions.

    To me, DPS METERS are useless. In GW2, many of the world bosses have to be killed with a mix of condi and physical damage. Also, some of the the condi will be different depending on the buffs (food and other types) so why would a DPS meter be useful? People can test their builds in the PvP lobby against various golems there. Done - don't need no DPS meter.

    1 content update, 99 cash shop updates.



    How about that - GW2 has a hater on this forum - who knew? There have been many updates recently and the game is still going strong.
  • Guild Wars 2 - A Struggle for Balance - MMORPG.com

    Well, this game has 3 play styles - PvP, PvE and WvW. A.net only seems to be interested in PvE and they are losing the players in the other areas. They are doing irreparable damage to their game. The problem is they don't understand that.

    Games aren't using 8 threads.  Windows is doing it.

    Nope. The game actually HAS to be programmed to be threaded or not. Windows just manages the threads.

    The video's "moral"? Evil is viral? But anyway the graphics look kinda fun in a old-school way. Have they ever gotten this game to a point it works well and is fun though? The video itself seems to be embracing the griefing... I don't know.
    try it out i would say.

    i am a pvp mmorpg player.. played everything and tried everything on the market..

    Darkfall online is the only game that gives me the thrills regarding pvp and open world pvp

    true player skilled combat.. none mmorpg offers that


    There are plenty where you have to be skillful. But griefing games do  give PvP a bad name.

    So ...

    Chris Roberts repeats what he said 2 years ago ...

    this is newsworthy ... why ?

    2ish years ago here in this subforum i posted a rough estimate on cash burn, expected income rate and possible profit from SQ42 (sold to non-backers) .... to get a rough estimate how long the project could run. Which is basically what Chris Roberts said in this interview here.


    Have fun

    It is newsworthy since the Madoff case (this game as generated the most crowdfunded money) - a Ponsy scheme is still just that (not saying it is , but it looks like it). And, if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it is a duck.
  • Hardware Review: ZOTAC 10 Year Anniversary Sonix PCIe SSD - General Hardware Reviews

    Totally agree. Pretty much a useless review as it didn't compare this drive to similar SSD drives.
  • The PVP in this game is horrid

    So I reached lvl 40 on my guardian, game is OK so far... decided to try some pvp, and promptly barfed!
    Gear has no effect on pvp.
    Not only do you have to kill someone, you have to then, fend off there team while you try to ram a flag into their body, effectively killing them...again...all while they are able to hit with weird little attacks while laying on the floor.
    This promotes zerging, lack of skill, and its just fucking weird....it literally ruined the game for me.

    This is a deal breaker for me, probably will not login again, the PvE its self is extremely un-immersive, and I was hoping the pvp would be epic....alas its a steaming pile of shit.


    LOL - then this game is not for you. I am happy that gear has no affect, that means you actually have to play the game and understand positioning, etc. Just go back to where Gear is everything and skill is nothing, like Rift, WoW, ESO, I could go on.

    There is nothing wrong with PvE, is you understand the lore of the game. It actually is one game where they actually try to keep the lore whole, not a steaming pile, like Rift.
