Madness Rises [Rise] – Banners Hold.
Don’t argue with idiots, they pull you down their level and own you with experience.
@Reaper Alim, At the end of the day they still hit you 20 with 60 unlimited aoes while they get 20 unlimited aoes on their head. So please tell me how does this work to fight bigger servers?
Please enlight me how removing aoe cap would be a counter to an overstacked server. Like they cannot use their aoes without the cap?
It all would lead to one big thing called LAG. Have you been around before the aoe cap? I was and if you think lag is bad now you are very wrong.
Is this about the calculation of server populations?
Welp, can come with lots of suggestion like disable gliding in combat, but at the end of the day people would just run away from fights.
No need for invulnerable buffs, just turn the servers off when ive gone offline!
Daredevil don’t need to wp or glide, they just run away from danger.
I agree, and it looks a hundred times better than any other WvW map – but why does nobody want to go there?
Lots of people stubborn to learn the new paths anet created. If you do it right you can travel faster then on alpines.
It’s a pretty good map now then what it used to be on launch. Many good tweaks have been done there to make the map way more playable.
You can get a HoT key cheaper than a monthly subscription on those key selling sites, just make sure its a legit one that people know about, dont have to buy the $30 one from Anet
This is really really bad advice. Don’t do this.
For one thing, key resellers, and that’s what they are resellers, aren’t that picky where they get their keys from. Someone wants to sell them a key, they set up an account and sell it to them. And some of those keys may or may not be bought with a stolen credit card.
Even though the company is likely to replace a key bought with a stolen credit card, it won’t do you a lick of good because your entire account will have been closed. You’ll lose all your progress in the game and have to start over. If that happened to me I would absolutely leave the game.
Only buy from authorized resellers, not key exchanges. It’s not with the risk. People have been banned for it
^this so much. I’d spend a couple more bucks just to ensure my account i have for years won’t go to waste cause i wanted to be a cheapskate.
So many commander tags out there and we need more inexperienced pvers to tag up in wvw all for a really hard to get legendary back piece NOT! Anyone that does wvw and has a commader tag can get it. It’s not exclusive in any way so stop making out like it is seriously. Good on op for not wanting a commander tag and standing up for something they believe in.
So you prefer they had made that part a pure 300g sink into mats then?
You have not read my post properly because your only thinking about mats. The op does not want a commander tag . Commander tags can be used in wvw, pve and pvp game modes. When you have to make the pvp and pve back piece do you have to have a commander tag for them . No you don’t. Instead of a commander tag it should be replaced with a wvw trophy that you have to buy with say 100,000 badges. It would suit wvw players more than a commander tag that every game mode has and wvw players would have something to work towards. It would also give badges another purpose. Also i have a commander tag that i bought for 100g not 300g 5 years ago.
300g for a commander tag that stays with you till you quit the game. acc bound. Or do you prefer many of the other mats you need on legendaries instead of this? THink its way cheaper then all the gifts that are not required for Warbringer.
I will never understand why people bring up armor weight as if it’s a big debate point.
Maybe because heavy armor users take much less damage so they suit better for frontline?
Assume a 12,000,000 base hit.
A Berserker heavy armor wearer in Ascended takes: 5,284
A Berserker light armor wearer in Ascended takes: 6,100
A difference of 816, about 15%
A heavy armor wearer in Ascended with +1.5k Toughness takes: 3,182
A light armor wearer in Ascended with +1.5k Toughness takes: 3,461
A difference of 279, about 9%
Toughness makes a much bigger difference than armor weight. As you add more, the percentage taken between heavy armor and lower weights decreases.
That’s not to say that guards and revs are not front-liners for a reason. However, that reason is less the weight of their armor and more due to their contributions to the current boon vs. boon-strip meta.
You are correct that the toughness is more important than the type/armor weight.
But there is a difference inherent in them. If the AoE damage became nerfed then Zerg balls become more of a problem as well.
Nerf how far AoE does damage, and remove the AoE cap.
How about just remove the AoE cap. I think it’s time for omni-zerging against much inferior numbers to be not so safe. If your people rely on just stacking to avoid AoE mechanics against smaller more skilled players. Then I say it’s time for you all to L2P and stop nut hugging each other.
The harsh AoE caps is what lead to the proliferation of zerg balling with a full map with 2 or 3 tags on one spot in the first place. AoE in my opinion needs to go. ZOS learned this which brought back loads of solo and havoc players to ESO. At the height of zergballing absolute META. ESO saw the least amount of players interested in Cyrodiil Alliance War. ZOS removed nerfed the AoE cap from 5 to 75. Players in mass became more interested in the Alliance War battles. ZOS took it a step farther and took away rewards for just PvDing undefended keeps and resources. Turning ESO into a fight oriented RvR style game. That only rewards players for fighting and winning the tougher battles. Fast Forward to today. Alliance War in that game is pretty populated, and has a place for all playstyles. Even the ones outside of just stacking and burning. Because ZOS nerfed the living hell out of zerg balling, Cyrodiil is no longer a dead game mode and has map queues on all 3 factions throughout the day.
TL;DR If you want people’s interests back into WvW. And maybe get back some of the fight oriented guilds that lefted this game because of Server Stacking/OMNI-ZERG BALLING META. Unlock the AoE cap. Reward in game skill based play. Nerf, out of match and skill-less based play and METAs. Again rally behind this idea, and help lobby to remove the AoE caps. Make Omni-blobbing less safe.
Let’s make WvW great again!
Aoe cap is due to technical limitations. Make wvw great again? Make wvw unplayable again you mean.
If you like this game and don’t want to risk a ban or anything else to lose your account, i would just buy it straight from Anet.
You forgot to mention boosters that makes it way faster.
You couldn’t get those hero points straight away at launch. They did became available after a while.
I don’t think anet would allow wvw players to skip new expansion content by adding all hero points and runes/sigils.
/signed. Should make me stop using sunglasses in big fights.
It’s not mandatory to be in a squad, if you get kicked you can still follow it with max profits.
Maybe its one of the gw2 vs wow videos on youtube?
I get this once in a while. Just don’t put the very exact text in and you able to dodge this problem. Also /t isn’t affected so you can spam there away.
Now the mail supression…
Can always convert gems into gold and send to said person as a gift. Might be some gold lost doing this but its an idea.
An option to remove visual clutter caused by flashy stuff defeats the purpose of having it , which is primarily “look at me and my flashy stuff.”
If this can be turned off then theres little point in having it.
Im not a real fan either, but the reality is that flashy stuff pays the bills for Anet.
Why would it defeat its purpose? You get to see all your flashy stuff and be happy, whereas one that does not like it turned it off on his very own screen and be you know happy too?
Pro tip: Do the easy WvW daily achievements each day. Use the WvW reward track potions on the Gift of Battle. You’ll end up getting one after a couple of months. Clearly if you’re desperate for one now this wont help you but might help people planning on legendaries in the future. A little forward planning can go a long way.
If ya happen to do all dailies every day for the potions its roughly 3 weeks of play time. Around 10-15min each set, depending which one you have ofcourse. WvW rank would be your kryptonite but ey no battle, no gift.
Get some boosters and you are done in 6-7-8hours top. Try to complete as many dailies as possible and consume the potions. A full track is roughly 75 of those.
Edit; Horrible typos.
(edited by Offair.2563)
Cause farming 1k gold surely tells you are experienced, aswell having high ranks which you get by ktraining empty structures. Right.
If you don’t plan to play wvw it does not really matter what server you choose as its all megaserver instanced. Ofc na/eu makes a difference.
Make your own squad. Make your own LFG farm groups. Might not be the “fastest” but if you have capable people it’s ez mode anyway.
As for wvw, if you find any of the haters dead, ress em to 99% then stop and walk off saying “ohye im useless”.
Glide with the Warbringer legendary.
Spanish for flowerpot.
Silly camp cappers not very effective. In scenario OP put i’d run up that hills and kill the 5 ppl with the 20 to get better and longer participation.
Diminishing returns on hard CC would be more then welcome and would also make people think about their skills instead of mindlessly spamming away for max effect.
Like you stated in your OP , it brings nice money in Anets bags.
If kittenrubbing sm all day long is what you want, vabbi is your server.
Was fun to use it in open world pvp in WoW. /afk and people thought you were afk so started to attack and realise you were not afk!
However i dont really and never seen any real use of this emote.
The less stealth, the better. It is absolutely broken.
Sadly anet thinks the other way around.
I would have everything within an hour with my many stacks of daily chests if this is going to be a thing.
Sometimes i see outnumbered displayed on my homies but not on me.
Nowadays you make more money then u spend in wvw. Especially with the skirmish chests and the material bags out of it. They have a good chance to drop asc mats like elonian leathers (roughly 10g on tp) and the like.
After some cake distractions, we’re rolling with the zerg in EBG
Come fight me on DBL instead.
Hi i want a legendary but i need a gift of battle which requires a battle. Unfair!
Stop bandwagoning every 2 weeks would solve all your problems.
No really, it works lol. The long loading screen is triggered by certain class abilities, most often teleports.
Hmm interesting. Is that the reason this bug doesn’t struck me playing rangur.
A Mike o Brien finisher. Everytime you cast it it yells “You are surely into pve!”
yeah vabbi is a great server to join. good community with the best players in eu atm that are good at both ppt and fights. you can log on at almost anytime and there are players to play with. vabbi isn’t a bandwagon anymore. players are here for long term community building.
I will keep you up to date once the bandwagoners complain about other bandwagoners and move away as a “tactic”. Or after relink.
Irony is stronk with them.
Nobody knows for sure if they will allow WvW players to once again skip all the new content when leveling this new elite spec. As mentioned, when HoT first came out they forced the WvW population to grind the new maps with everyone else too but after the outcry they later introduced hero points that you got through leveling ranks.
It came out at the time of HoT.
Getting Hero points via WvW wasn’t available at launch of HoT. This was a concession given by Anet a bit later.
They announced they were doing proof of heroics on Oct 19th 2015, HoT launched Oct 23rd 2015.
It’s as if people are just making things up.
I guess they overlooked the link that I pasted…
Yes you can buy those scrolls now, not on launch of HoT, perhaps a cpl months later.
Been like this for ehm years?
I don’t think Anet allows people to skip new content just by using proofs to unlock the new elites.
Except they did with HoT.
No they did not, proofs got added way later into the expansion. And even then you could not buy those level thingies.
I don’t think Anet allows people to skip new content just by using proofs to unlock the new elites.
I still get more pips then you. And i frankly don’t give a kitten about rewards, never did.
Grab a track reward booster from guild halls. Find a zerg to run with and try to complete as many wvw dailies for the potions. Good luck.
if the devs under the years keep adding more new mechanics and additions nonstop this game will have a LOOONG lifespan…
Mechanics don’t make a game good. Diverse, personalized story content and mindbogglers do — they make for fun and replayability.
You have that backwards. If game mechanics sucked you would not enjoy diversity/stories and mindbogglers.
