  • thank you anet balance fixed

  • I mean if you're expecting a balance patch before expac you're kinda delusional. Why would they tweak everything now, just to HAVE to tweak it again for the expac? They already can't keep up with balance the way it is, putting out what 1 or 2 patches this past year, no reason to think they would balance twice before September.

    maybe the WvW balance patch will come when they release alliances. xd

    Let's be positive. It's bound to come at SOME point.

    This post contains my opinion.

    Kind of another pointless update we been getting a lot of them lately.

    See ELE forms and you will get my views.

    As if they're gonna tweak anything after x-pack release to reasonable levels WITH other e-speces at the same time.
    Can't wait for new broken stuff that won't get any fixes!

    i mean i kinda appreciate the patch, because it doesn't mess up stuff even more than other ones did yet. :9

    I think people should have expected no significant changes since the expansion was announced.

    they´re going to grab some money with new xpac and then let game bleed out .. kitten .. this isn´t the way to treat a game where u want players to stay .. annoying

    Don't forget about nerfs to condies and boons as well or even mobility some classes posses! Oh wait.

    Can we at least use the correct nomenclature? This was not a balance patch. There weren't even notes to coincide with it. What this was, was a hot fix. The purpose was to bring some outliers and bugs in line.

    There is little reason to making huge balance patches when there is an expansion a few months out. Each profession is going to get a huge shake up and the meta we know now will be very different.

    It's okay to want more, but let's at least be realistic about it and call it for what it is. A hot fix.

    If the tree is anything like the one by west necro, entire EB zergs are going to wipe to it. So at least it would offer some new amusement.

    @rrusse.7058 technically even a cold fix, bc hot fix is a "fast change to some urgent bugs", and afaik the warri banner and necro elite interrupt have been for quite some time in the spvp format.

    @Fat Disgrace.4275 lmfao, what, really? xD did not notice that yet... YAY CONTENT. or wait... that's rather some random change, bit like the wall invulnerability swap at red EBG border close tower (mendons gap i think)

  • rrusse.7058rrusse.7058 Member ✭✭✭

    @kamikharzeeh.8016 Fair enough. I won't pretend to know exactly how long bugs have been sitting in PvP. That is admittedly a bad one and its not good that Arenanet let it sit for that long.

    It doesn't seem right for folks to treat this as a balance patch when it simply isn't that. I would love to have one, but we know why there have not been any major changes, and acting like we don't know or undertand why is ignorance.

    Zommoros giveth and Zommoros taketh away.

    It’s not that they are treating this as a balance patch. It’s that there hasn’t BEEN a balance patch in pretty much 6 months. The OP was a significant level of sarcasm.

    Thank You for the {MEME}

    That tree claimed my guild once. It was a sad day. A sad three-way battle. That tree was mocking us, it got us in our self-bomb. A truly horrendous and demonic entity.

    you cannot even encrypt the sarcasm anymore.

    someone hijacked the encryption?

  • The new tree in EB changed the way my guild plays. New dimension to terrain usage. All this on top of the amazing balance patch. Thank you! I bought 16k gems as a gesture of appreciation! :)

    Here's the sad reality; There likely will not be another WvW update/balance patch/new map/etc. coming for WvW...EVER. What little resources Anet/GW2 have left will be fully devoted to the next expansion, reason being it's make or break time for both the game AND the company. If the expansion doesn't generate a LOT of revenue for the company, GW2 (and GW1 for that matter) will die and so will Anet. A lot of the blame falls on Anet for the way it chose to generate revenue, focusing ONLY on gem store transactions and ignoring micro-transactions, which largely fund other games/gaming companies. In the short run that was good for WvW players like you and me, but in the long run it's led to the demise of the company. Rather than forcing free-to-play accounts to pay for access to things like WvW and PvP, they focused all their micro-transactions around the Living Story. Furthermore, Anet only receives maybe 25-30% of the money spent in the gem store, with a small percentage going to the 3rd party company running the transactions and the majority of the money going to Anet's parent company, NCSoft, which in turn uses the profits on OTHER games, not GW2. And even if Anet completely dissolved its relationship with NCSoft, odds are contractual agreements set forth a long time ago will still result in NCSoft still receiving most of the money from the gem store. It's a sad situation, but it is what it is.

    And if you don't believe me, see how long this comment stays around after I've made it. In years past this comment would have been removed within a short period of time after I posted it and I likely would've received some form of punishment as a result. Now, it's all too likely nothing will happen and this comment will remain...because Anet simply does not have the resources available to bother policing the forums as they once did, and it's entirely likely that there isn't a single dev left working on WvW these days.
