    And legendaries are meant to be.......legendary?

    Yes, I've seen the requirements and it's a colossal undertaking. Makes my pre-nerf Insane title look like a walk in the park.

    But let's be honest, it was a bit ridiculous to see that blue dragon flying over Orgrimmar every single day.

Fun can't be quantified with straight-up data, and trying to use statistics to measure fun is a dangerous logical minefield.

    Your last comment is the biggest load of drivel Ive read from you and isnt worth me defending, if you think that the majority of players raid your a bigger fool than i thought, to defend it would just descend in to inane wow vs gw2.

    orr being 1 zone/3zones symantics not a defense.

    Must be just you then, I am level 80 and I spend most of the time anywhere but Orr.... and you'd be surprised how many more people go to lower levels, maybe you should try it out....

    As for wow... seriously why bring into this something that has 90% of the game deserted ....

    P.S. this thread will get locked soon anyway since everyone's so trigger happy.

It's run over with Bots too, who simply stand and certain DE ant auto-shot everything in range.

    None of these design decision would have to be this way. But for some reason ANet decided to do it so. It doesn't make sense given everything they set out to achieve with GW2.
    I don't believe Anet wanted the game to be played like this, one massive zerg missing out on all the other dynamic events they have spent their time and money creating. If you really believe that then you are (what's a nicer word than stupid?)

    I agree with you its broken, Anet just needs to reward freeing up the temples better to get people off the zerg track. They have a lot of their plate atm, trying to get out new content for people that are fine with this style of play and also there are more serious bugs to fix. Broken DE's, invisable players in WvW, getting rid of bots (3000 a few weeks back was a good start)

    You need to relax and let them fix things, they can't address all YOUR issues overnight.
    "you can't be serious!!" - yes actually I am.

    I just hate Anets lack of interest with WvW it seems. You see red posts flooded in other sections of the official forums but nothing in WvW, also the response that free transfers are still up because the guest system doesnt work yet is complete bull.
    Free transfers are going to be the downfall of this game because lets be honest WvW is the endgame for an extremely large group of players and in its current form its just server hoping when your server looses, which destroys communities. If free server transfers were ended after 2 weeks we wouldn't have these constant blowouts in WvW in every fucking bracket every god damn week and we wouldn't have these handful of straight up dead servers.

    What dead servers? NA has 1 medium population server and the rest are high or full. ANet has done an amazing job with managing server populations.

    I think you have it confused with some other game that doesn't give a crap about server pops.

    Having some trouble with logging in and finding another thing is broken, getting a little old but it's not concerning me a whole lot.

    I generally just go on and complete some stuff in zones. Almost at 50% map completion so I'm taking my time with it. Not even going to try to complete Orr until the bugs have been ironed out almost completely. Last time I was there, well... There were quite a few bugs.

    As for funneled in to one zone, I kind of agree and kind of disagree. While there is the 'go to a lower level zone' option, it's simply not as good. You get less karma, less experience and less cash. You also miss out on a lot of vital waypoints by not going there.

    Weird I finished Orr without problems on Sunday and got the Explorer + map completion achievements and finished personal story finally as well (was kind of slacking there). I remember there were a lot of bugs but for once it seemed the ones I have stumbled over before were gone.

    Yeah if you did any research you'd know those servers are populated by mostly bots, look at shit like Anvil Rock.

    whats upsetting me most about ANet is that the game needs some new content, and instead of getting emails about what they are working on, and what they plan on changing ~ Ive received 6 emails from Anet since launch, each asking me to buy something from the store in a different way. Not once have they sent me an informative email on whats going on behind closed doors, what to expect, what changes they plan on making. . . NOTHING but BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY. No thanx. Ill buy some stuff from the store when you give me some end game.

    Only durring prime time bud.

    Get used to it. 90% of the threads here seem to be filled with people trying to deflect any issues in GW2 with comments about how WoW had issues.

    I said more bang for your buck, ie you get more rewards for running orr, only completionists will want to run downlevelled zones, no one with a brain will go back to a level 10 zone to get rewards if they have 100% in there.
    Yeah, I'm a little sick of hearing the whole "downleveling!" crap.

    Fact is, if you go back to a lowbie zone at level 80 you'll be mowing down mobs in one ability usage most of the time. In fact, even as low as level 22, my engineer almost one-shots a lot of mobs in Metrica.

    And the rewards are completely awful. Like 1/8th the XP/Karma/cash you'd get from an Orr event.

    So yeah, as far as features go it's really not nearly as awesome as people seem to want to try to convince everyone that it is.

    Then check the server population at 2pm. Or do not many people play video games at 2pm? What about 4pm? Why arent they maxed out and FULL at 4pm? Isnt half the country off work by then?

    And honestly, this debate is over the population of servers. So we should stick to the topic at hand. Which is ~ ANet is dropping the ball in a lot of areas, and they need to step their game up if they want to compete with WoW. GW2 has the framework to dominate the MMO market for the next 5 years. They just need to focus on content and less on "BUY SUM GEMZ FRUM OUR STORE CUZ HATS R COOL!".

    4pm EST? Almost everyone is still in work. 4pm PST? Half the country is eating dinner and watching the nightly news.

    Yes. It clearly took them many months to make that hat.

    Some days I honestly do see more bots than real players. It's actually a little shocking just how many of them there are.

    I've started calling them "Bear Armies" because it always seems to be groups of hunters with bear pets.

    The devs or whatever in GW2 frustrate me to no end, ive actually given up trying to get answers out of ANet because its freaking pointless.



    This is the image of ANet that I see in my mind whenever I try to discuss things or get answers, a little kid screaming with his fingers in his ears saying "im gona be better than all the mmo's" when in actual fact he's doing more harm than good.

    Downed states is another thing that annoys me in pvp, it makes people extremely tanky and wastes your time when your trying to kill them. I can easily down 4-5 people as a necro solo, but Its impossible for me to finish them off because of the crappy way in which this game revolves around dying. Seriously.. who the hell thought that was a good idea, I can see its implications in PvE since they done away with the holy trilogy which keeps us all sane. But pvp does not need it, just make players more durable instead of giving us a bloody downed state.

    I think prime time is 5 to 11pm, right? Or is it 10pm?
