Fear The Crazy [Huns]
(edited by Gandarel.5091)
Many say ranks mean nothing. I agree rank =/= skill, but rank still used to measure some sort of routine. Hotjoin was still a problem, but with this skyhammer gloryfarming, PvE players can achieve r50 in 2 weeks.
If I’d abuse a forgiving totally flawed PvE feature i would get a permanent ban and the method would be fixed in some days.
But after MONTHS, the problem was “mitigated” by removing the /gameend command. Now people just leave and rejoin the server. Still gives the same amount of glory.
PvP rank is all that PvP players had. Only had. Rank didn’t mean much, but it was the only thing we’ve got in a year. Now the last PvE farmer peasant can get r50 in 2 weeks without knowing anything about PvP.
You think this is fun? Is this how things work here? PvE players are holy and if they want Pvp rank oh they shall have it without work? Then give me my approx. 2000 gold i could have easily made by investing my time into PvE rather than PvP.
Also, people can no longer group up with others in Team Arena by rank because they lost faith.
Remove glorygain from hotjoin.
If i want to keep up with the Pve farmers I have to farm Skyhammer in hotjoin 6 hours a day. Is this how you imagined PvP to be?
Edit: oh I forgot to mention. Now that Pvp reward overhaul is coming, guess who will benefit the most, No, not the PvP players. The PvE Skyhammer farmers. Unless they start rewarding tournaments.

Seriously, I thought I bought a fantasy game. But after seeing megalasers attached to skyships defended by golems, and repelling a terimantor invasion from an alternate future (after I destroyed a high-tech weapon facility), what about magic? Most of the classes are magic users. Only engineers and sometimes thieves fit this game nothing else (warrior is totally outdated). Others are outcasts.
Why aren’t we replaced with golems? It’s just a matter of time I guess.
TA was one of the few fantasy-only dungeons, but BAM it needs some technology for sure.
Will fantasy ever return?
I, like many others, just wanted to thank everyone that they are developing a totally awesome PvP that is the best i ever had.
It’s a good game because you are kewl
Guys discuss. It’s all we are allowed to discuss.
The real and final stab in the back was this. Not just that they didn’t give us random minis and we got 8 Jennahs, but meanwhile, they add 42 new minipets to the gemstore. Jennah for tease, and if you want your GW1 present, you can have it, just empty your pocket for it.
I hope ArenaNet will start to make logical decisions at some point after they left behind their ‘GW1 didn’t exist and we ignore every loyal veteran’ mentality,
Lot of GW2 newbies don’t seem to understand it so I will break it down to them in a separated topic as many before me have tried as a simple comment.
One half complains because they want Birthday gifts with a random mini, and there’s one who just can’t make difference between this and the RNG they hate.
Gemstore: you want an item. You can only get it from the gemstore as a rare drop from an RNG chest. 99% is junk, but you want that 1%. You hate this.
Birthday present: there’s a set of minipets and only minipets. You WILL get a minipet. Not a swimbooster or other useless thing. If you don’t like this minipet, you can sell it on the TP and buy the one you wanted. These minipets hold value. Can be traded. You can keep it or make a little or sometimes pretty great fortune from them. You would like this.
That’s how I feel. We loved it, supported it, and got nothing we wanted with GW2. Devs promised us even in the manifesto that it will have everything we loved from GW1. Of course this cannot come true, and i don’t want it to be, but GW2 has nothing what we had and loved.
The problem isn’t that these things aren’t implemented yet, but that these aren’t planned at all.
We had many gamemodes, build diversity, LFG system, template saving, rewards for doing PvP, GvG (which could be our PvP guild missions, everything is given), Heroes’ Ascent (the best PvP ever made). And guild capes. Don’t forget capes. Backbanner sucks. And so on.
What do we have? Conquest. I like conquest. But I had enough time to like conquest for nearly 1 year now, also, we haven’t even got unrated tournaments, and hotjoin is just a cancer of PvP (fastest way to get rankpoints is to avoid combat and ignore tactics), so if you want to play solo, you have to yolo.
Sometimes it feels like if GW1 had something that was working and everybody loved that, is treated as a forbidden thing that should never ever happen again. If they spot that you write “GW1”, they just ignore you, and this is sad.
ArenaNet is just throwing out veterans to the thrashbin. GW1 players are like the abandoned stepchildren.
Maybe a bit harsh, but these are my thoughts. Thanks your reading Had to write it off. But I’m not here to whine only:
-Add unrated tournament
-Add an observer mode for top ranked tournaments that EVERYONE can whatch IN-GAME
-Unique drops from win chest (like minipets), that we can sell on the trading post. Gear is not they way anymore. Not alone.
-Add a buff that stacks with consecutive wins. If you win a tournament, and win the next round too, you will get 100 bonus rank points. If you win another one, you get +200. If you lose one, bonus is lost. This stack has infinite duration and is only lost after a lose.
-Improve in-game statistics panel. Like best rank on the leaderboard, or a visible rating.
-Rewards and achievements for being high-ranked. Like title points after each win, and the higher ranked you are, the more you get from wins. Or a currency you get from high-rated wins, that players can use to purchase unique skins, finishers, minipets, etc.
-GvG or HA. Or both. GvG could be our PvP guild mission, and since we can be in 5 guilds at the same time, we could have some guilds for practice, some with friends and some for hardcore purposes. GW2 pefectly supports GvG.
