The heroes are backwards compatible.

Did not know this. Will be taking a trip over to Elona...

Edit: Nevermind. So, in order to get to Elona from Lion's Arch, you have to do this mission and kill 4 gates or something, which for some reason even me being at level 18 is hard as hell to complete, and of course my fucking Henchmen get slaughtered in seconds.

Thats what Heroes are for....I rarely group with humans, they are stupid.

Although I like the add of Heroes in Nightfall, they're ONLY in Nightfall. I'm still trying to get through the Prophecies campaign on my level 18 W/Mo and grouping with humans either 1) takes forever or 2) ends in disaster so I'm trying to use Henchmen, which aren't going so well. Saying that you "don't have to group" in this game is pretty much an outright lie.

Bullshit.

I have 6 characters who have achieved the Legendary Survivor title. I have carried zero rezzes on them during their usage. That's what monks are for, sparky, learn to use them effectively.

As for Skill Caps, you farm Elite skills. It's not like it isn't obvious where the Hell they are. It's not something you magicially stumble over.

Increase your skill, novitiate.

Wow, someone's a little defensive, aren't we?

You can't expect someone to NOT die in an MMO (even though Guild Wars doesn't totally fit that description). You may be leet enough to live, but most people aren't.

You may like Guild Wars and many people do, but many people find the gameplay mechanics a little too limiting for their tastes - and apparently NCSoft listened, as GW2 is freeing up a lot of what people had issues with.

I understood why they limited the skill choice and what they were trying to do, but it just didn't make sense. It's like telling a soldier "Ok, well I will teach you this move and this strike and this dodge, but you can only choose one of them when going into battle." If they were going to limit choices, they should have allowed up to 10 skills, not 8. 8 was just a little TOO limiting.

I LOVED the original Guild War's story, races, background, etc. What killed it was the forced grouping, instancing, and limiting of skills (most absurd thing ever). If they fix that, GW2 could be a pretty good contender.

If they make a game where people will KNOW that they have enough power to run it, then people won't pirate it as much.

I guarantee that a lot of piracy stemmed from people thinking "Well I don't know if I can even play this... might as well download and find out."

How I saw this went down:

TriSynergy: Hey guys... what the fuck?
Majestic: Sorry mate, our bad. Mulligan?
TriSynergy: Guys, you stole from DISNEY. MOTHERFUCKING DISNEY. They have their own WORLD. And LAND. What the hell were you thinking?
Majestic: Shit man, we already said sorry. How did you get out of this mess?
TriSynergy: We told them we had no idea and blamed it all on you.
Majestic: Brilliant! We'll blame someone else!
TriSynergy: Someone else? You DEVELOPED the fucking game! Who the hell are you going to blame?
Majestic: You know... someone else. Not us.
TriSynergy: What if someone calls you out on that obvious bullshit cover story?
Majestic: Well that's easy! We'll blame the companies that we... err, someone else... stole the stuff from! If they didn't MAKE it in the first place, how could we have STOLEN it?
TriSynergy: Jesus. How did we ever sign a contract with you people?
Majestic: You didn't. We stole the contract, too.

None... thats the problem.

Stop trolling. There are large differences between the two, and I would have much rather had an "updated" version of UT04 released than the incarnation we have now.

That's great, but unless games come out that support it (and not half-assedly either), then this might be cool. If not, it'll just end up as another useless and stupid gaming peripheral in the bargain bin.

Wow, 8 new maps... one for each player still playing this consolized piece of shit!

It's admirable that they're releasing new content, but they need to be fixing the glaring consolization issues before anyone will even remotely take this game seriously.

Of course the assets they had came from "sources external to the development team" - THEY CAME FROM OTHER GAMES!

The publisher playing dumb is one thing. The developer, on the other hand, is just plain ludicrous. And if the DEVELOPER wasn't DEVELOPING assets for the game... how much can they actually be called a developer?

So after playing a bit, I have to admit that my original "OHMYGOD THIS IS AWESOME" feeling has gone, and while it does have some semblance to Tribes, everyone is right in that it is not Tribes. The action, however, is the closest I've come to Tribes in a long time, and feels even closer than Vengeance did. Maybe I'm just hoping to play Tribes again - that would be utopia - but right now I';; just have to settle for this and hope they make improvements.

Yeah, I'm kind of reserving judgment on the maps because it's beta. I'm hoping that when launch comes we'll have bigger maps with more modes than just TDM and CTF.

Ok, so played with some people and.... holy crap. This IS Tribes. The gameplay is there, the edge-of-your-seat flying is there, the disc launcher is there (renamed and redesigned, but the same thing)... I hope this succeeds and grows because just one match was fun as hell. If you people want a successor to Tribes, try it and give it a shot. There's no different armor and no vehicles but the core action is all there. Skiing is in, but you hold the right mouse button to use it. What a blast!

Ok, so... booted it up, wasn't able to play with any players for some reason, but got a chance to fly around a bit.

When I first took the step off the balcony and flew off with my jetpack, the first thing I thought was...

HOLY SHIT
THIS
IS
TRIBES

It definitely has that feeling to it and it's getting me pumped just thinking about it. It doesn't seem to have different armors as far as I can tell, so the customization isn't there (at least not yet, it still is beta), but the flying, feeling, weapons, et al seem to be SPOT ON to Tribes. I can't wait to get some duels together like old times.

I'm not sure how I like the in-browser thing... graphics aren't bad, but they aren't superb - but seriously, if it's Tribes-like gameplay, that's the least of my worries. At first I was annoying that I'd be confined to the little screen until I found the full-screen option which made it much better.

I'm gonna head back and fool around with it and hopefully find some people to play with.

Fault finding is a common ego boosting practice. You put yourself in a position of superiority, in this case, to people that do not share the same opinion as yourself. However, no one here shares you opinions because the rest of us have an IQ above that of a banana slug. Enjoy your repetitive postings and your overall mediocrity

Hey g_mann, why don't you go criticize Crysis some more? You fucking hypocrite.

yeah what i hear is a bunch of idiots who join a beta 6 months before its actual release date and complain about how its not finished?

Its beta moron.

I love when people call other people morons without using proper grammar. It's really ironic.

But that's besides the point. Yes, I understand it is in beta so of course it will not be bug-free, but from what I'm hearing it's not even FUN. Yet all we get are podcast after podcast talking about how great it's gonna be and how it's gonna have all these features and blah blah blah.

Myself, along with many others, are getting tired of hearing this team spew all this stuff. Not because it's annoying - but because it's getting to a point where it's building people's expectations to higher than the game could possibly accomplish. I'd rather them stop talking, make the game great, then start hyping again.

I really think they should take a break from hyping this game and put all their efforts into making it as best as can be. From what I hear from folks in the beta, it needs it.
