Any cool WvW news or updates that can be discussed or shared?

Swagger.1459Swagger.1459 Member ✭✭✭✭

Maybe Alliance news? Maybe some profession improvement updates? Maybe next paradigm phase thoughts and possible direction? Maybe stuff that's being looked at or considered?

    Email I got from anet says new living story this may. So, probably then we may get the lion mount. :3

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

    No but I can update you on my progress in WvW. Does that count?

    The situation is grim. Our Lord Commander Zudo has not graced these lands in some time. Perhaps the heavens are in chaos where they need his divine might? His absence does not bode well as many denizens have made their move to maliciously claim our homeland. So we are in a perilous state fending for our families, and praying for His Grace to return. When that day comes he shall smite these heathens back into the nether where they belong!

    It’s because Shattered Aegis has been nerfed into the ground.

    They havent had time for alliances because they're adding WvW to PvE.

    True end game... dissolve wvw and put alliances in a pve map...

    alliance is useless thing, hope we never see that.

    Maybe some profession improvement updates?

    for what? no thanks

    Maybe next paradigm phase thoughts and possible direction? Maybe stuff that's being looked at or considered?

    don't see any point to do that.. main news - sab new world next year.

    The new pve map seems to be them testing features they might bring to WvW, but only time will tell.

    absolutely not. What change server ? - we an do it now. Don't see any possible positive impact from alliances.

    Maybe some EotM news? New EotM achievements would be cool. Like smaller water puckets in towers. I would call it HC pucket list achievement. :o

    By big patch, you actually mean big nerf? Everyone knows that big patch was nothing but nerfs across all professions and both dps and support builds. There will be a Phase 2, Phase 3.... nerfs??! :astonished:

    Even their WvW stream last night turned into PvP talk, which is tryhard at this point too, with the state of Anets Competitive game modes.

    Alot of questions, but not that many answers, so I doubt anything is coming anytime soon, until Autumn or Winter, if there is anything in the pipeline including balance updates.

    They don't even say much about skill lag either, because most likely the problem is deeper than a simple fix; not just get 'better' servers.

  • Excursion.9752Excursion.9752 Member ✭✭✭

    You mean something like:

    • New/improved tactics
    • the ability to change the layout and shape of towers and keeps
    • Reducing the damage on Arrow carts and Dragon banners
    • Bring blood lust shrines to EBG and place them in caves along the outsides the map and only allow up to 3 people from each Faction in at a time. You know something for the roamers
    • Alliances
    • Release a PvP/WvW festival
    • Make all legendary trinkets obtainable
    • Make Emblem of the Avenger a valid currency or perhaps a part of the legendary trinkets components
    • Since war claw is not going any where how about some mount finishers
    • Schedule regular events like core swap/no down state/golem rush for at least 1 week per server link.

    oooooh that was just my personal wish list.

    Here let me list out what actually will happen:

    • N/A
                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you

    I like the idea of changing layout and shape of objectives. Even just add some cosmetic upgrade. Recently watched some eso wvw and i love the look of keeps there, walls are huuge, not like in gw2

    I asked this in the Livestream chat and the devs said they can't say anything about what's in "the pipeline", but they can chat about what you'd like to see [but never will] (about 5 mins from the end).

    This was a great livestream, the players bombarded the devs with questions from start to finish. They got a proper grilling.

    I get the impression that the players are DESPERATE for anything new for WvW.

    Thief OP? Better nerf Scourge ... again.

    Does it have ONE class with Perma Stealth? Or Could do crazy dps while stealth? And getting hit does not break stealth? And highly mobile?
    If not then I'm not interested.

    Yeah that's the hilarious video which shows everyone how these "new and amazing" MMOs with their "modern" engines arent really that much better... if not worse. Look at the animations on players 10-20 meters away and just laugh. Sure it's alpha - sure GW2 had culling issues - but that is really something else in terms of "optimization", literally turning players into 2 fps stopmotion characters. There's not even close to large player numbers on screen. I can only remember seeing similar behaviour out of the first couple of Total War games in "full" 3D (distant characters became 2D sprites because it couldnt handle the numbers).

    @Dawdler.8521 just a small note.
    Animations,, models riggin, better effects and renders all of these pre alpha and alpha games, are to pre mature to be criticize, its not even in afully lpha state, its a demonstration before anything reach even alpha.
    Look at pre alpha and alpha tons of ashes of creation for example, and compare with the beta for example, they got more effects animations and less clunky.

    They're calling it an alpha.
    But, they're less than two months from launch.
    They don't have time to change anything major even if they wanted to. The devs have bluntly stated they're in the polishing only stage.

    Hence this isn't an alpha, it's not even a beta, it's a rough draft demo of the end product. The game you saw is the game you're getting.

    Do not doubt for a moment, alliances are being posponed on purpose due to the lack of new competitors on the WvW gamemode.

    They havent had time for alliances because they're adding WvW to PvE.

    True end game... dissolve wvw and put alliances in a pve map...

    Already partially done in Drizzlewood Coast map. Attention: Rich Orichalcum Vein mining node included!
    Well, events are nice there and fits the Charr civil war theme nicely, but the level-design of the map is .. somewhat weird for my taste. Idk if its the unbelievable water (for example when compared with believable water locations in Queensdale map), scale of the map or something else, it just feels a little weird for me.

    Speaking about its impact on WvW game mode, I have a hope (I should probably call it rather as "wish" than a "hope") that it can actually encourage some curious PvE players to at least try enter the WvW mode to actually see whats happening in the "real" WvW gameplay and maybe start to play WvW mode too. You know, 1 or 2 new WvW players are still better than 0. Small and weird hope, I know.
