Holy crap, this is awesome! Installing on my GT 750M rMBP and GTX970 hackintosh to test right now. Notes so far:

- Performance seems decent after a few minutes of stutteriness. Still worse than Windows by a significant amount obviously, but not bad at all for what it is.

- There’s a short pause in mouse movement after releasing the right mouse button from turning the display, which is pretty annoying.

- The labels on the map screen seem to be rendered in the wrong resolution, especially when zoomed out.

- Interface size: small doesn’t work (the text stays the same size, with only minor UI changes)

Should Upper Bound be obtainable without HoT?

(Apologies if this is a duplicate post – I couldn’t find it mentioned elsewhere on the forums, but the search seems to barely work at all so I may have missed it.)

Does anyone else share my opinion that Upper Bound, presumably the reward for the first tier of Ad Infinium collection, ought to be obtainable without HoT? It’s already 99% of they way there; as far as I know the only thing preventing it is the gate from buying Charr-nip without the very first part of fractal mastery.

From a business perspective, I feel like a free player (or, like me, currently unupgraded veteran) who really likes fractals would be more likely to get excited about purchasing the expansion if they managed to obtain their first little set of wings and couldn’t help wanting more. It’s the same principle that makes many of us keep our characters that’ve used a makeover kit: “I put work into this, I want to get more out of it.”

Also, it’d probably serve to entice more free players into fractals, knowing they could get something visible for their work, and we all know a more experienced player is a more likely expansion purchaser. (Personally, I’d be much more likely to log in every day to work on those achievements if I knew I could get something for them.)

And it just seems to make sense given the design. All of these achievements feel doable without mastery. And the legendary backpack achievement tab doesn’t have “please buy HoT” text on top; this would make a good reason why.

Overall, I feel like this would greatly increase enthusiasm among non-upgraded players, and – correct me if I’m wrong, HoT owners – I doubt expansion purchasers would be bothered by it. That’s what Unbound is for.

"Analyst" triggering name filter

Not sure if this is the right post category, but it seemed like the best fit.

I understand the technical reason why the word “analyst” gets flagged as not following the naming policy, but as a title actually used ingame by Asura NPCs, it seems kind of unfair that I and other player characters can’t use it. Obviously, it doesn’t break the rules.

Is there any way this can be allowed, or is modifying the filter system too difficult?
