You sound drunk -.-
I don’t disagree with you points per se. Only that what the OP stated is incredibly frustrating to experience.
Personally I wish ANet would just get away from this competitive scene. I dont know what marketing they got out of it, because from the ground up it looks like it hasnt really worked.
Helseth lost 2 pips WINNING a 4v5 AGAINST.
It’s far from being casual bull kitten
I think what he means is that if your new its easier, but if your a veteran PvPer you’ll find it much harder to progress. In your example the concern is premades vs solo player, which is also an issue.
Tbh there’s been a lot of issues in this league,
EDIT Getting back to the OP.
MMR seems to constantly flip flop you been giving you games you can win and giving you games your supposed to lose. I’d actually argue that that’s where the biggest disconnect between MMR and Leagues is.
MMR instantaneously want’s to keep you at 50% where as league wants you to have winning streaks.
If your an established player your fighting against the system rather than against other players.

I don’t know what I’m talking about.
The decay of GW2 down the path of perpetual power-creep is extremely negative for the game.
A small example I guess but this is EXACTLY what happen to my lockdown mes, which I personally found very viable previously. Now between the constant stability/ageis/evade spam to try and time a nice spike is nearly impossible and I effectively waste mine and my teams time.
Now if I want to be relevant as a Mes, I have to play bunker. Which is ofc all post HoT.
At this point it doesn’t look like there’s much ANet do can. Despite the poor sportsmanship of PZ and other guilds Anet needs them to legitimise this League or admit they mismanaged it from the beginning.
With 1/2 a million on the line, there’s NO WAY they will admit they mismanaged it. So PZ will continue doing their thing.
I just want the ticket things for the legendary back piece… If only there was a reward track that you could get them from so I don’t have to deal with almost finishing a tier then bam…. Here is that losing streak you always wanted.
Good point. A lot of people just want the shinies rather than say the ‘status/recognition’. Which is an important point because GW2 being dubbed ‘Fashionwars 2’ will attract people to Leagues who dont care about it at all, let alone PvP itself.
Your alt account is an outlier.
So he was lucky on his alt account?
This is a problem for the high MMR people as far as getting ruby and higher.
But then you say it affects people at higher ranks? Which his alt account isn’t.
So the OP’s post still stands? It’s easier to get to Sapphire on a new account then an established one.
I think what your arguing is that your going to struggle when you get to a higher division. But even then tanking your mmr before making big pushes or getting premade teams to include a newb account that drags down their mmr are still viable ways to bypass the system.
Effectively the average soloQ player that does their best, who don’t tank, form a premade or manipulate the system are going to be punished the most. Which I think is what most people are complaining about.
It wasnt that hard for us.
You would have been in that instance for hours.
Do champ trains still happen here? I don’t see them anymore so assume they were nerfed into the ground.
I am glad there is some challenging non raid content where you do not need 10+ players to do anything.
Sure I can relate to that, however it still doesn’t change how disproportionate it is to the other AP’s.
It is called extreme mode for a reason.
Tbh that’s a poor analogy, when you compare this AP to the others from the HoT Story. The other AP’s have varying degrees of difficulty but nothing compared to this one, its completely disproportionate.
So many people who have completed the other AP’s will get stuck on this. It just doesn’t make sense to scale the level of skill/ability and coordination to pull this off.
Keep the hard scaling content to raids.
Wow that sounds painful.
Would you say ‘working as intend’ or do you expect anet to make some changes to this/
Are people still attempting this?
Don’t seem to be able to find anyone.
I’d like to know to.
The games been out for 3 years now. If you’re really that desperate for mounts, try a different game.
I see premades still winning everything.
an all out war with them over it.
Why would it have to be war with them. He said only a few or even one.
In order for them to “come back”, they would have to make a new version of them. .
And? It hardly comes across as complicated programming, the skin is already there. We don’t really need your wall of text.
I wouldn’t have been happy unless each alt had their own gear. So most of my alts became obsolete.
While I in general agree with your post it’s also something of a hyperbole thats a little late. We’ve had these discussions for about 3 years now.
I’m an altoholic but I’ve slowly been chipping away at their ascended gear. So I don’t agree with your obsolete statement. I’d be more inclined to say it’s a state or mind.
At this point, if it still bothers you, don’t play.
I’m seeing it get further and further away from what I liked about GW2 in all honesty.
The company has changed a lot since it’s GW1 days.
Colin J and Mike O are still there but 2 of the ANet founders have left amongst others so I’m cautious of where GW2 is heading but not panicking yet.
White/Black Wings has killed it entirely.
True, always better to ask/wait then to buy and hope. Once they have your gems they have no incentive to change anything.
your a joke right?
You could note my observations.
Or you can do what you did and copy wiki then talk a side point I didn’t bring up while ignoring points I did make, while also changing vocabulary I used.
Retired, deleted, removed call it what you want didn’t help fotm any. I’m glad you had time to prepare with your glory boosters tho….
Back on point, its not a good precedence they’re setting.
acting like this is a big deal
I dunno if its a big deal but after my glory boosters were deleted and my FotM level reset you start to see a trend. ANet a few times now deciding its ok to simply remove or delete things.
So I dunno if its a big deal but its certainly a problem that they delete things with impunity.
Then again if your new to the game ‘one type of booster’ is not a big deal.
I see were still losing game after game to premades.
Karma booster was the main one I used -.-
If they gave us a heads up I could converted a bunch of boosters into Karma and actually USED some of these useless boosters.
The new boosters aren’t any better. Just a different dog with different fleas.
Not sure what your point is?
JQ, YB, TC & BG are all ‘superpowers’ in t2 because of better coverage and numbers.
If they block you they can’t PM you however they can unblock you, then PM you then block again.
Just block them if it’s annoying.
This thread is highly ironic.
“I want things that ANet has never even hinted at, but I can’t have them because entitled players keep telling ANet not to add these things.”
I’m curious how this process works. If i ask for something then call you entitled does it mean ‘I called dibs’ and you can’t use it on me? Go me, I won the internet!
more of us are playing in wvw now
More like Hibergate got a kick in kitten with the exodus and pulled its collective finger out and started playing instead of waiting for seasons.
I’m pretty disgusted with how this has been handled by ANet.
The more I think about it the more disappointed I feel with how they managed this.
When I consider my boosters, Karma booster is THE booster I would use regularly. The other boosters I have no particular use for, maybe popping a magic find booster.
The new boosters don’t really resolve anything in particular imo. It just strikes me as a different dog with different fleas.
Honestly it’s ANet’s game but THE egregious mistake here is that ANet never indicated that Karma boosters would be removed. Nevermind the constant removal changes ANet insists on doing (FotM levels, PvP glory boosters) and now karma boosters.
It all creates a feeling of having things taken away and people missing out. It just upsets people.
Not sure why you would try and oversimplify when there’s a great conversation going on above you.
While I think such a move is admirable you’d be taking the current small Ocx population and making it smaller.
SoS/IoJ has always had the biggest pool of Ocx, many moving to tier 1 for fights. Asking people to move again will just make that small population even smaller. Unless you can somehow guarantee a steady stream of Ocx to your fights servers (x3 assuming).
I’d say keep it? At least for awhile to be sure you have no regrets.
As you say tho, the stats are no good. Salvage it will give you some ecto and inscription if you use bl salvage kit. Mystic toilet will give you jack s%$# or a precursor (most likely jack s%#@).
And yes, once you unlock a skin you have it forever across all toons.
EDIT: MrNicoolio posted just before me, I skimmed what he posted and pretty much agree.
I’m aware of websites that promote farming particular areas that will give you a good number of soft wood logs. However what I’m after is a little different. What I want is a particular spot within an area that has a high concentration that you can gather.
For example with iron if you go to Brisband Wildlands to the area around The Gallowfields you have a nice concentration of iron you can gather there. If you want elder wood logs you can go to Malchor’s Leap just West of Paggan’s Waypoint for a nice concentration of tree’s there you can harvest.
Is there a particular area that has a nice concentration of softwood logs that you can gather rather than having to ‘run the map’?
Thx in advance.
Someone in LA mentioned that ToK will be limited to use once every hour in an anet live stream to limit the rev being leveled up to quickly.
I call BS but thought I’d check here to be sure.

And the US players complained $50 was expensive to them.
I always lol when they come on here and complain about 100ms ‘lag’.
TC has by far and away the best siege humpers to. If you like standing by an arrow cart the whole time, TC is the way to go.
Well either it does or it doesn’t and picking and choosing your argument along with your “because I said so” doesn’t make you look any better.
For all intents and purposes you’ve completely missed the point and got hung up on inconsequential information that you subsequently disagreed with yourself over.
Where does one send in video evidence?
Oh please, are you the alt account?
You were here one day ago….
There are many who have been waiting much long than you have, myself included.
You came to this thread 3 days ago……
Your that guy who wants to have a drink after the bar is closed.
You don’t have to trust ANet but don’t bring your spam to a thread that largely seems resolved.
Come back after the patch if theirs no update and spam then.
people moved away from asking when it’s done, to proposing an alternative.
Different dog with different fleas?
What I mean is, if they released an alternative and it was buggy as well, can you imagine the out cry in this thread? lol if I was a developer and that happened I’d have to take a day to psychologically prepare myself.
A fix is coming for the BIGGEST roadblock, which is the infiltration bug. I’m content at this time because I expect a fix soon™.
My only concern is why it took them over a month to come back to us on the infiltration bug. My guess is they weren’t working on it (perhaps even aware of it). Then when the season 2 value pack was released, well, it was just insensitive.

Reminds me of BG
Wish I could say we FINALLY got a response because of Sina’s finesse and articulation. However, I’m pretty sure it was because Akagami/Robotosis hit them round the head with a baseball bat that made them pay attention.
Bear in mind there are some bugs preventing progression in the achievements.
FYI ANet support stated that you were opening the story, not the achievement with these episodes. Effectively removing pressure on themselves to fix it quickly.
how would we go about asking for a refund?
If people start submitting tickets, making inquiries about refunds for broken content. They may be more inclined to pull their finger out.
