    Some guildies of mine have been wondering why they occasionally see clone even when they are not mesmers.

    Certain mesmer projectiles have “Create a clone of yourself” as an on-hit effect. Namely, the third hit of the scepter’s auto-attack (and greatsword #2, but that can’t be reflected…)

    If you reflect them and they hit something, then the projectile counts as yours, so it’ll make a clone of you to attack them. It’s similar to how reflecting a thief’s scorpion wire will pull them to you.

    The amusing thing about this is, while mesmers are programmed to only allow 3 illusions at once, other classes are not. Theoretically, you could spawn enough clones to crash the server.
    So they went into empty pvp map to test.

    There isn't really much place for him to be remembered. Among his own people he wasn't renowned. Among Lion's Arch, well, we saw how that played out. And considering the last-stand he did at the end of Ghosts of Ascalon, being able to even recover a body isn't likely. Dougal himself just says that Kranxx died a hero.

    The only thing that really touched me about their handling of Ghosts of Ascalon was the Secluded Glen in the Fields of Ruin.

    Yes, might be the 'Battle of the Four Winds'. It seems the Aetherblades are hidding near the Dominion of Winds:

    • The "Dominion of Winds" encountered in-game is actually just the outer western border of the actual city, which is currently inaccessible.
    • Players can see parts of the Wall at an area of the same name in Caledon Forest and Dominion Killing Zone in Kessex Hills; the Shuttered Gate in Lion's Arch is said to also lead to the Dominion of Winds.
    • Geographically speaking, Aetherblade Retreat is underneath the Dominion of Winds.

    Maybe there is finally some really huge content coming, but who knows.

    it seems that way I won't get hopes up though... It's odd that there is no Tengu on the picture.

    I'm so glad Blu isn't casting the ESL tourney. Grouch understands the game and helseth is one of the best players around so they get some good calls out.

    I try to watch the little tournaments that happen on twitch, but usually turn it off if that Blu guy is casting. He is just beyond annoying for my liking.

    Where does Anet respond to tickets or whatever it's called, via email or somewhere in your account?

    Also, how long is the average wait time for a response?

    For me it's just that nearly all his calls are wrong and he doesn't provide any additional information. "Zomg the mesmer died" is something I can see myself without any issue. "zomg the blue mesmer died, red'll now have to defend far point since he'll rez there" is something I know but is nice to have pointed out.

    I`m not sure if they do replies.
    I know when I`ve sent in bug/cheat reports etc, it pops up saying something about no replies.
    If important, you could email them or NCSoft.

    support answers via email; I had quick response times and my problem was solved fast.

    To be fair, shoutcasting is a lot like announcers in sports...99% of the time they're not really telling you anything you don't already know, it's just part of the tempo of the event.

    Difference is tactics don't come into play as much in "real" sports. "So jim what do you think the black bruthas have to do to win this game" "Well bob they should get ball possession and try to score"

    vs

    "what do you think red should do to come back" "I think they should focus on the off-points, it's clear they can't win the group fight so splitting is the only option"

  16. #32176
    Yah, that's true, but still...I don't tend to expect much from announcers in terms of, "Help me understand what's going on." because they're really just a part of the entertainment package.

    Like the guy that screams, "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!" in Soccer (Sorry, futbol). He's certainly not intending to inform me that a goal has been scored. =D

  17. #32177
    Again I agree, but you have to understand the background of that. First of "casters" were for radio, so they had to make it exciting to bring the tension across. Second, TV can't keep up with the plays. It happens quite often that the ball is on the other side and the director is still figuring out what camera to switch to.

    The depth of soccer is also quite minimal and the only real "tactics" are falling for penalties and putting your entire team on defense after you've scored...

  18. #32178
    There is a skill to play by play and color commentator. I don't watch esports, do they have an announcing setup like on television? A big difference also is that for pro sports the announcers are professionals, that's how they make their living and some of them make a lot of money doing it. I imagine in esports they don't get paid or if they do, it's very little. The point is that there is a big quality difference and it shows. A good announcing team can make a dull game seem a lot more interesting, at least in sports it can (unless its golf, not sure how to make that one exciting).
