That lasted about a month, before I got fed up with the grind for ascended gear again

I don't understand why people are so focused on Ascended gear. The only place you actively NEED it is high level FotM. Which few people play anymore because they give shit-all in rewards.

In the rest of the game, Exotic is more than plenty powerful enough. (In fact, the difference between Exotic and Ascended armor is so minute it basically makes little to no difference in the large majority of fights you're in. )

Ascended weapons are a little better over Exotic than the armor is, but there are plenty of ways to actually get Ascended weapons. Sure, the drop rate is tiny, but it does drop. And you can get ascended rings and trinkets just about everywhere now. You can buy them with Laurels, with guild comms, with Honor badges, with Relics...

If you don't want to grind for Ascended stuff, then don't do it. My main only has ascended trinkets, and he runs through everything just fine. (The stuff that kills me would kill me in Ascended gear too.)

This game needs to be more casual. Not only are the people always getting a heart attack, if someone isnt exactly doing what they need to do, simply because they havent run the instance 5000 times yet, but they also have become extremely unfriendly since release, they dont even thank you anymore if you save their life. Sometimes worse than WoW players. They are really judging players by achievements points. If you dont have 5k+ points, youre a noob to them and they treat you like dirt. Maybe its different on the US servers, but on the EU servers this is normal. I have literally become sick of people and their disgusting elitism in this game.

Switch servers. None of that bullshit happens on Tarnished Coast. People thank you for ressing them. In fact, during the Scarlet Hologram battle, we'd often say at the start "Thanks to all for ressing everyone in the next 20 minutes!" just so people wouldn't waste time typing "ty" every 10 seconds.

I've run into several battles where some poor guy is getting slaughtered by two veterans, and he thanks me for saving his ass. So the population is definitely better on TC.

The only thing that reigns supreme on TC as well as everywhere else is people who want to do speedruns and bitch when someone doesn't have the right equipment or knows what to do. But then again, on the flipside, they DO say they're going to do a speedrun, so why are you joining them without being able to actually contribute to the speed run?

Seriously, switch servers. Playing on Tarnished Coast is awesome.

Next gen only sounds promising, but let's be honest. Most everyone who liked Black Flag liked it because of the pirate stuff, not because there was an AC game shoved in there.

If this goes back to just being an AC game, it's probably going to be pretty disappointing...

Also, Ubisoft, for the love of God, GET RID OF THE FUCKING EAVESDROP MISSIONS. How many more times do I need to vote a fucking 1 star on those piece of shit cunt-ass missions???!!

7 to 15 times? So Direct3D is actively destroying 700% of performance in games?

Somehow I find those claims fairly difficult to believe.

Stupid. Just stupid.

You've opened the floodgates, Netflix. Two years from now, those networks will mysteriously "congest" again, unless you pay an additional 10 bucks per subscriber per month.

And then two years after that, hey look, there's that mysterious network congestion again.

Idiots.

A few weeks ago, we agreed to pay Comcast and our members are now getting a good experience again."

REALLY? So Comcast's claim that it was just 'normal network congestion' can't be right then, because if it had been normal network congestion, more money wouldn't have simply fixed it.

So, like everyone knows, and like everyone said, Comcast was blatantly throttling your traffic, in blatant violation of net neutrality, the rules they swore to uphold until 2017 even if they were stricken down by court order.

But yeah, give in to extortionism. That always ends up really well.

Who exactly was spending less than multiples of 5 in any given trait line? The giant hexagons every 5 points seemed pretty straightforward.

Nobody. Literally nobody. There can't have been a single person with the actual intelligence to buy the game, install it and create a character, who then couldn't figure out that buying 14 and 11 points isn't as clever as buying 15 and 10. It's them just making shit up to justify their stupid attempt at a new system.

I've just had a look at these new traits, and ugh. These are fucking GRANDMASTER level traits, that you now need to be level EIGHTY for, and you need to do whatever in the world to get it, and what do you get then? Well, the engineer gets a projectile reflect bubble on their turrets for FOUR seconds! What about the fact that turrets are borked? Yeah, we're gonna ignore that.

And the guardian gets +3000 health. Sounds cool, until you realize that just about the only thing that kills guardians is one-hit-KO stuff, against which that 3000 health won't do shit.

...

Oh well, we'll see what happens. I wish Anet had guys as good at developing systems as they have guys who are good at developing content.

The content in GW2 is great. Seeing Lion's Arch now, after the battles over the past six weeks, is genuinely a melancholy feeling. Everything's destroyed, and I really miss the old Lion's Arch. The Living World genuinely makes big changes to existing sectors, and it's a very cool thing.

But, they really need to do something about the underlying system, especially combat. Conditions and crowd control are virtually useless, causing DPS to be so absolutely king that it's basically all anyone ever runs with. The Holy Trinity is gone, long live the Holy Singularity.

New traits sounds cool, and them going back to the old Elite system from GW1 is really funny, since they murdered that because the PvPers kept fucking whining about how hard it was to get a skill. I guess maybe they're finally realizing that 95% of their userbase plays PvE and Dungeons, and they should stop catering to the 5% that bothers with PvP?

However, the way you're acquiring them is fucking terrible. Seriously? No traits until you're level fucking THIRTY?? And then you don't get the next point until level 36?? So for the first thirty levels, you just have to bumble about without any fucking bonuses or builds or combos whatsoever? That's fucking stupid.

Direct3D 12 is the API you’ve been waiting for.

Yeah, not really.

Direct3D 12 works across all the Microsoft devices you care about.

As long as they have Windows 8.1 installed.

Wow. 18 months. That'll show him!
That seems pretty steep

For extorting dozens of people? Had he been a mobster who extorted dozens of people IRL for money, he'd have gotten twenty years. But because it's on the computer, so apparently it's not really "real" or something, and he just extorted these girls for sex, 18 months is fine.

But yeah 9 months is still steep, considering his career outlook is probably permanently damaged

Oh noes, the poor guy's career outlook! How COULD society be so cruel?

Honestly, I think EA's probably got it in the bag again, though maybe people are pissed enough at Comcast over this retarded merger with TWC.

Really, though, Monsanto should win this hands down. How is everyone with the title director or higher from that piece of shit fuckhole not in JAIL?

Speaking of shitty companies, Obsidian is teaming up with Paradox to publish Eternity.

Paradox. Aren't they the guys who have been shitting out games in completely unplayable states? Like Sword of the Stars II?

GREAT publisher to shag up with...

An encephalitic yak could have told Blizzard or EA that D3's auction house or SimCity's always online were crippling design choices. But the arrogance shown by the developers, as if somehow they could convince players that design decisions that hurt gameplay but generated money were totally in the players' best interests, has been absolutely staggering.

Sadly, the games sold 10+ million and 2+ million copies respectively. So gameRs (edited) in general have loudly spoken and said "We will happily buy your shit! Please shit in our mouths some more!"

Don't blame developers for gamers being retarded fucking morons and said devs taking advantage of that fact.

Not a literal quote, obviously, but it's not exactly "new."

But Tesla had no clue how to generate it, did he?

I am absolutely buying a wireless electricity generator the second it becomes available.
