While that's great and all, there's nothing there to challenge me as a gamer. I geared out three characters with BiS mods from crafting, beat all dungeons, and did 100% world completion. WvW exists for the sake of giving pvp guilds something to do, but it's redundant and unsatisfying. The larger zerg will always win (or was the case back then) and quite frankly is unrewarding as a guild effort. My guys are all oldschool PKs and they dropped like flies after hitting 80, if they even got that far. Simply put, the game is touted as a pvp game and is more carebear than WoW, which I thought not possible.

Guild Wars 2 is not touted as a PvP game. I'm not sure why you keep providing misinformation on the state of things when you've admitted you haven't played in months.

That's where WvW changes are making it better. It's more strat and tactical than just zerg now, where even a small band of "PKers" could possibly ruin it for the other 2 teams.

What you're focusing on is just PK and constant grind, which GW2 isn't about and sadly D3 didn't either so I'm sure you won't ever see any good in GW2.

Legendaries, and ascended items are better than any crafting, and there's plenty to do if you widen your narrow playstyle.

In the coming months, tPVP and sPVP will be better in April's monthly rollout. It's already better in the new map they just released and opening up paid tourny's into totally free tourny's now.

GW2 was made differently any maybe why you don't like it.

Southsun Cove is quite a challenging zone. Moreso than Orr. I can waltz through Orr and kill things at will, but those veteran karka...

Other than that if you beat Arah Path 4 there really isn't anything worse than that as far as challenge goes (apart from trying to solo a dungeon or something..)

I haven't posted on here in a while either. Just built a PC with a HD7870, I need to tweak settings as I was getting 50FPS, but loving the way it looked. Anything new?

Yes but unfortunately how Anet is introducing new stuff is pretty dumb. There have been quite a few fun instances and updates to older areas and some interesting quest lines buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut... they only last a couple weeks. The current living story thing, the Dragon Bash, is pretty lame.

The Dragon Ball PvP mode is putting people into split camps of love it/hate it. I don't like it much, personally, but aside from that I like the new revolving door of content.

Lol, I can't help it.  This thread gets bumped like once a month, if that.  I don't even hate the game, I just haven't played it since that w/e that boring December event was.

Since December:

 

We've had 4 weeks of Flame and Frost, a great mini dungeon with new fun boss mechanics.  this will be added to the fractals along with others

We've had a 2 week comeback to Southsun, fun events, mad cash, mad items, fun stuff.

 

All the while guild updates to puzzles, rushes, and treks.

 

WvW introduced new ranks and skills to grow.  

 

Ton new items, three different spreads of stats, and more exclusive weapons.

 

Dragon Bash has been a slow goer, but it's introducing more arch-types with the mini stories.

 

The weekly freshes of events are alot better then just game updates, seems like it's more of a living world versus just grinding through content.  You can not play but come back and you'll miss out, but you'll come back to something new to do.

 

It's a good game to come back to, since updates change it up, events are always going on.

Got on today. Running my Guardian, one reason I love this game is that I can comeback and pick up where I left off. Just wish I had more time to play (grad school, work, & Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate).

I don't know, but if nothing else the main concern I've had is with the random "rolling" of WvW matchups. Ferguson's Crossing, where I run the biggest guild on the server, is being matched up with Devona's Rest and Gate of Madness. I mean...FC is not even a remotely live dog against either of those two. It will end up being a 1v1 while FC watches.

yeah they are mixing up to match WvW group servers better.

 

really what they may need to do is to combine servers....or allow populations to match with quotas.  getting one server stomped is not fun.

The old system was better, but people whined. Now that the new system is here, those same people are whining because they don't like getting stomped, and the people who knew the old system was better are whining too. I have to say from being on a tier 2 server, that there's a reason the top 3 servers are the top 3. Their coverage is far superior to everyone else, and when we had to face Sanctum of Rall two weeks back the match wasn't really fun for everyone involved. Then my server (Tarnished Coast) got matched up with Sea of Sorrows and Crystal Desert last week and it was even more of a drubbing (for them). Unfun matchups in all directions.

I have never personally ventured into World V World outside of getting my 500 badges to craft my Legendary. With little to no content left in PVE for me to complete it may be time to check it out.

No, i believe you have until July 9th.

 

Today is the new patch: Sky Pirates, balance patch, and the new temporary dungeon.

Tired of ANet's lack of account support. 3 days for assistance!? On vacation and wanted to play, now I can't because for some odd reason I'm queued up for a Google Authenticator.

Man, I feel bad for leaving the thread on a sour note. :(

 

Anyways, hey guys Team CAG is looking for people to help out with our Extra Life Gaming Charity drive.

 

You raise money and game for 24 hours for Children Hospitals. Pretty fun, and plus it's charity.

 

Go over to this thread for more info. Click here.

 

I currently have some raffles up for console and PC games, if anyone is interested and I will also have some for those strictly on Team CAG. Planning a Game of Choice and Preo-order of choice down the road.

 

Hit me up if you got questions.
