    It's only alpha footage, they are aware of it, and will fix it for release no doubt.

    In the end, if you hate dynamic events, GW2 is probably not for you. Just like if you hate quests, WoW is gonna be pretty miserable. I would say the strength of GW2 is that it really does offer a big range of stuff to do, that can be done in a group or solo, at any level. But in the end, of course there will be people for whom GW2 is not the right game :-)
    Don't get me wrong, the sound of a personal story is a great addition to the game. Having a single-player story line with the game itself actually being an MMO will really help with the enjoyment of leveling.

    I apologize if I sound a little pessimistic in my posts here, I do wish the best for GW2, especially since I will be buying it. Dynamic events do sound great, but the way they work has me a little concerned.

    Say for example, a group of monsters attacks a town, and there starts a new Dynamic event. Half the players want to push back the monsters and save the town, the other half wants the monsters to take over the town, what happens then?

    We'll have to wait and see Underskilled. However, since there is no ffa pvp then how will the half of the people that want the monsters to take over the town prevent the others from saving it? Remember, the event scales on participation and just sitting there doesn't count as participation.

  8. #808
    I would assume that you can't aid the monsters, so anybody wanting the town to be destroyed would lose out. But I can't quite see why you would? Given that you will get rewards for fighting off the monsters, not to mention the benefit of still being able to use the town.

    And I don't think you need to apologise Questions and doubts are always going to be there until we can play the game . . . you're asking reasonable questions (unlike some in this thread )

    Then the content of that Dynamic Event will scale accordingly to only those that are actively participating in the event. They're setting up the DE's to check for people participating, not the ones who are there. And if said people just take a single shot at something there, sure the content may scale up a bit, but once the system sees them not participating any longer it'll scale right back down.

    Hope that help out some.

    There is actually a reason behind this. If you played through the area already and you saved the town before it was taken over, it means you didn't get to see the event proceeding the towns capture. If the town is captured you'll see another set of DE's that spawn off of that one and etc etc.

    Then the monsters don't take over the town. The event scales with participation, both in active players and number. There may be 20 people in the group, but only 10 of them are fighting, so the event is tuned for 10 people. There is no "help the enemy" sort of system, there's no "Allies" and "Axis" dual faction setup. Enemies are agents of general destruction, and so you should never have any desire for them to be victorious. If you're looking for the ability to simply hamper other player's efforts, I don't think GW2 is the game for you.

    There are several servers, right?

    I'm just wondering, with these dynamic events kicking off, could there be several different servers?

    That would be awesome. Just transfer to other server and see what could've happened.

    The experience, my good man. After saving so many towns, I personally wouldn't mind seeing what happens if the monsters actually DID take over the town, just to experience the fight to reclaim it.

    DW, the DE's also happen when noone's there so you'll see enough towns in the enemy's hands

    There will be enough servers to house everyone hopefully at launch, I think they will use open beta to get a number on how many servers they will need. Although they said server transfer is free, but it will have a cooldown on it, to stop WvWvW griefing kind of I guess, so you can't just transfer in the of a campain each time another server starts winning.

    They are still working on server transfers. It could be that you have a home server and you can visit any other server to play with your friends or whatever with no cooldown. But you would only be able to participate in your home server side for the WvW battles. Then perhaps a month cooldown for a home server transfer. Or something like that.

    ye, it's amazing how people still are against gw-style microtransactions (that are usually purely cosmetic, and never affect balance), but still accept horribly overprised server transfer

    WoW has a pretty high priced cash shop, especially for a sub based game.

    If you sell it, people will pay for it.

    Provided it's all cosmetic, I don't care.
