Guild Wars 2 Password Attacks

Ars Technica has an unconfirmed report that ArenaNet has been experiencing attempts at unauthorized access to Guild Wars 2 accounts. These differ from the typical such attacks as they are reportedly the result of a breach at an unnamed Guild Wars fan-site, and that the perpetrators are now trying the username and password combinations from the site to take advantage of users who also use them for their game account. They include the obvious warning that this is not a good idea.

While you make good points about my original message -- I was about 6 glasses of Ancient Age bourbon heavy at that moment! -- I still wouldn't point at it and scream "Trollolololol!". You didn't do that, but those who did are generally the fanboy types that can't handle their perfect game being critisized.

I still don't understand your skidding point. Are we playing a different game? The skidding looks just as bad as WoW's, an even worse if you count the speed in which you fall toward the ground. IF there is any animation to it, you have to show it to me in slow-motion.

However you wanna justify it, this community (almost in particular) has a knick for acting particularily hostile toward others in that typicall smart-ass demeanor that would embarace the most ambitious asshole. Some people, like myself, react to that. And, debateable, perhaps not in the most efficient manner.

But yes, you're correct that if I don't like it it doesn't mean others shouldn't like it. Let alone the fact that I DO like the game, the defensive stance some of the community takes on in favor of the game is unnecessary and.. haha, simply laughable.

"Moo," she said.
And I trembled.
