    A very huge thing. Their rep. Do you not think many people would drop GW2 in droves if they did that?

    No, I don't think so. People always talk big about any gemstore/BLC change but at the end of the day you can see BLC skins and mounts everywhere. Forum warriors are irrelevant. People pay for waypoints, people would pay for hearts. Some people. And some others will complain but never buy those items. And after about a week or two everything goes quiet and game lives on like nothing happened.

    GW2 survived a lot of such dramas and literally nobody cares.

    Cool. Then I can ask for autocomplete of raids, content I find boring but I want the rewards. Some will complain but after about a week or two everything will go quiet and game will live on like nothing happened. Glad to hear it.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    I would happily buy raid completion/rewards through gemstore.

    Why not? They already started the trend and are happy to continue (currency vouchers added recently). If it's going to bring them money, more power to them. I'm in no way forced to pay for these. I got my vouchers for free and am already in the process of making another legendary for sale - buying dungeon gift without playing dungeons.

    But what the OP is requesting will NOT bring ANet more money. OP wants heart completion purchasable from the gem store. People will simply convert from the loads of coin they (supposedly will) make from selling all of the legendaries they make from map completion and such. Why would ANet do this if it doesn't help their bottom line?

    I am a very casual player.
    Very.

    Keep in mind, the game is supposed to be fun. If it's not fun, don't do it or play something else. Honestly, if you open this Pandora's Box, then there'll be no going back. Achievements and their rewards are not achievements if you can buy them outright.

    That's straight up pay-to-win.

    There are already people in game who never buy gems. OP case is very specific as he has funds to invest and multiply to satisfy his own greed. And that's okay. TP barons do it every day.

    But average Joe buys gems to get skins, or BLC keys or waypoint unlocks or lvl 80 booster. And so will pay people interested in completing core Tyria completion without grinding hearts for 10th time. Do not project OP's specific case on whole community.

    Also, why do you act like heart completion equals crafting legendary for free? It's just annoying time gate, nothing else. No skill or investment is hidden behind heart completion. It's just tedious. And do you expect that suddenly all players will craft legendaries because of heart task completion feature?

    Pandora's box is opened already. Lvl 80 boosts, waypoint unlock, teleport to friend, boosters, currency vouchers. This is not pay to win. You are not more powerful while completing hearts, you are not more wealthy completing hearts. It's just another fetch-quest system, poorly implemented because of early alpha players who had no idea how to play events and they expected big marker on the map showing them another quest.

    I am under the impression that allowing raid selling is more harmful as it totally destroys whole concept of raid content being challenging and prestigue.

    Might as well ask Anet to put in an item that just instantly world completes and gives you 1k gold and 5 legendaries as well while we're at it.

    How does map completion (normal way) grants you 1k gold and 5 legendaries? Because if you mean that you should be able to buy these things with real money, you already can.

    No, you and your ilk are asking to win said game without playing said game. You want the reward without the effort. So much so, you're willing to pay real money for it. If that's not pay-to-win, then I don't know what is.

    The Hearts are there to direct players to specific areas of said game. Why it's there is another topic. Not everyone raids. I certainly don't. But everyone in this game does play. Trying to place one criteria to fit another is disingenuous at best and completely distracts from the actual topic.

    Again, the answer is no. And the mere fact some of our peers can't see how damaging this would be to the game itself, blinded by their own short-term, self interests, is truly disappointing.

    What am I winning by completing all the hearts?

    A huge head-start from those who can't afford a leap toward legendary crafting to include map completion rewards and their achievements? Is this a trick question?

    But waypoint unlocks already exists. Are they huge leap toward legendary aswell?

    Or even better - a credit card. You know, you can buy gen1 legenderies using nothing more but your salary?

    Keep in mind that OP case is very specific. Think out of this little cage. Just like waypoint unlocks or lvl 80 boosters, these items will be used not byt farmers or crafters or aliens, but by normal people playing the game who are not happy with repeating the grind. However they may be happy with map completion star on their character. Also, to avoid skipping content for new players (I'm pretty sure nobody who bought game yesterday is going to think about buying these items today) just lock them until they completed map on at least 1 character (which they are not and you can already skip core Tyria, leveling and learning the game and start raiding today on fresh account). LvL80 booster is more pay to win than stupid heart task unlock.

  • Ardenwolfe.8590Ardenwolfe.8590 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Again . . . it opens a huge door to problems. But fine. He and you can have it, but only if I can pay for all my Jumping Puzzles to be complete too. And I want the vistas too. And the point-of-interests. Oh oh. And I'd also like to have my crafting maxed without having to bother crafting. And that giant slayer achievement is a pain too. Let me pay for that with a few more gems. Heck, give me all the Living World achievements without having to bother doing the Living World story.

    Hope you're seeing the point the others are trying to make now.

    Allowing players to avoid doing horribly grindy, old and untouched content is bad for the game? And who the hell said gems? Implement it like the hero challenges unlocks just for other game modes aswell. Just ends up with players being having to play content that is maintained by arenanet, receives frequent patches and is generally higher quality than the horrible heart system.

    Yes i have a question. Why didn't you also quote where he said he'd also be willing to buy with ingame currencies such as wvw badges, or from players if it was made tradeable?

  • You know OP. You really missed a chance when you made your thread only about hearts. You should have made buying autocomplete of content anything in game. Anything that anyone decides is too boring and tedious to do.

    Want the Yakslapper title? Auto complete of the WvW Legendary backpack? Raid tiers? Achievements? Titles? Anything. Anything and everything. All the person needs to do is declare they are bored, bored, bored with that old content and that there can be no possible harm to the game with that content being autocompleted and they can buy the autocomplete and get the rewards.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Well, considering others have admitted that the OP’s suggestion would be a slippery slope, I guess it’s you that’s not getting it,

    @Just a flesh wound.3589 said:
    So then tell me. If ANet does sell heart completion in the gemstore what would stop people from asking for the next set of content completion they want to buy? And what would stop ANet from selling more content completion?

    @Kheldorn.5123 said:
    Nothing. As much as nothing stops them now. It's all arbitrary.

    Oh, I forgot. The OP admitted it also.

    @Just a flesh wound.3589 said:

    You’re avoiding my question.

    Once ANet allows auto completion of chunks of the game what would stop people from asking for more and ANet allowing more?

    Some folks will stop at nothing to get what they want in any game... except actually playing it, because that is not why they are here.

    Running around in a virtual world with a fictional character with a tiny gold star on their name is a huge status symbol to some people and they will drop any amount of cash for it. A tiny gold star in this game and a rare pink tutu in another one.

    I say let them have it!

    Let them pay for further developement of this game so i can continue to play it for free. I've no problem with it.

    Suck them phat wallets dry!

  • Menadena.7482Menadena.7482 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Tell you what OP, what would you say about using gems to bypass hearts .... BUT ....

    Using the bypass item on a character would prevent that character from earning gifts of exploration?

    Well, you wanted to bypass hearts so you got your wish. What is the problem? BTW, can I say as another player you can take my name of your petitioning anet that we 'desperately' need this. That implies almost everyone agrees with you.

    New to the game? Feel free to give a yell if you need PVE help.

    'Slipper slope' arguments are invalid. Essentially, we have always been able to pay our way past a fair amount of boring, challenging and tedious content - directly from Anet as well as other players. And even though some people still enjoy playing them, hearts in Core Tyria are absolutely the least relevant content in the game. They've been lame for years.

    That said, I don't expect they'll sell something in the gem store to auto fill them, but it would be nice if the rewards were increased to at least make them worthwhile. I can't count the times I rolled an alt, set out to complete a core map and lost interest or got sleepy as soon as I got around to the hearts.

    You know, let’s say ANet takes up the OPs suggestion and adds the purchase of Hearts unlocks and then of course they adds this unlock and that unlock and thisandthat unlocks, as people ask.

    Why should it all be direct purchase? Think of all the money ANet could make if they also put them in Black Lion chests as an RNG unlock! You could open up a BLC and win all hearts unlocked on a map, or a title could unlock or a raid tier. You could also get AP added as that content unlocks, or even as a very rare unlock you could win the top level of any current sPvP league. Just think how proud you’d be if people asked you how you won that sPvP league or who you did that raid tier with and you were able to say (with a big smile on your face) “I bought it by buying keys on the gemstore and got it from a BLC”! ANet would rake in the cash for sure!

    /grin

    Edit: now I know some of you are thinking they would never do that. If so, explain to me what would stop them from selling RNG unlocks if they are already selling direct purchase unlocks. I’d like to hear why if you come up with a logical reason.

    Be careful what you ask for

  • No. No it does not. Also you're not skipping hero points, you're progressing them through other means but you're still putting in the work and that method doesn't translate to hearts so well.

    I did say I'd be glad to pay gems but I'd also be glad to pay some in game currency too it doesn't make much difference to me as long as I can skip the hearts.

    Why not? They could introduce a scroll that did the same thing for random hearts in the core maps just like the scrolls for the hero challenges. If they want to charge twice as many heroics for one heart scroll I'd be fine with that.

    Skipping content is a bit of a meaningless concept in a game where you arnt required to do anything at all.
    Skipping content , but still getting the rewards you would have got if you did the content is slightly differant.
    Maybe a differant perspective to the perceived problem would be would you rather than doing hearts, be prepared to do something else which was just as time consuming?
    eg you buy with gems a quest.
    The quest requires you to visit every NPC vendor in every zone , and each vendor will give you a list of materials and items which wont be able to be bought on the TP to bring to them and then you will be given a piece of a puzzle.
    When you have all the pieces you have to then solve the puzzle.
    When you have solved the puzzle, you get the GOE.
    The puzzle would be differant each time , so repeatedly doing this method would not make it easier.

    Yes, of course. Make all content in game skippable by purchase. And why should people have to ask? ANet should make all content skippable as desired with purchase if they’re going to do some of them. It’s all good money.

    So, what do you think of my RNG content completion idea? I mean, if ANet is going to do this they should go for the big money and let people who want this buy keys to unlock chests with random completions. It’s pretty obvious that RNG pulls in the money so I think this would really be a big deal for them.

    Be careful what you ask for

    I have a bit of a semantic issue here which is that all things in all games are essentially optional. You don't even have to play the game. But if you are going to play the game and you want a particular thing then you have to do what you have to do to get it if that makes sense. So in this case ofcourse the hearts are entirely optional. Unless you want to get your own Gift of Exploration in which case you have to do the hearts otherwise you can't finish map completion.

    As to your suggestion that sounds interesting maybe. It would at least be something new. I would still prefer to just spend either in game currency or gems on an item similar to the heroic scrolls from WvW but maybe your idea could be fun I dunno I'd have to play it to see.

    You know OP. You really missed a chance when you made your thread only about hearts. You should have made buying autocomplete of content anything in game. Anything that anyone decides is too boring and tedious to do.

    Want the Yakslapper title? Auto complete of the WvW Legendary backpack? Raid tiers? Achievements? Titles? Anything. Anything and everything. All the person needs to do is declare they are bored, bored, bored with that old content and that there can be no possible harm to the game with that content being autocompleted and they can buy the autocomplete and get the rewards.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    None of those things would bother me in the slightest but I'm personally focused on hearts. If other people want to put forward the idea of skipping other content then they should. I'd be all for it, give everyone Ultimate Dominator for a price, who cares?

    Yes, of course. Make all content in game skippable by purchase. And why should people have to ask? ANet should make all content skippable as desired with purchase if they’re going to do some of them. It’s all good money.

    So, what do you think of my RNG content completion idea? I mean, if ANet is going to do this they should go for the big money and let people who want this buy keys to unlock chests with random completions. It’s pretty obvious that RNG pulls in the money so I think this would really be a big deal for them.

    That actually sounds pretty cool.

    Well, my guess is if they ever do put in content completion unlocks it may start with one or two things but quickly become all content available for completion unlock, plus RNG completion as there’s a lot of money with that.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

  • Stomping 30 wasp nests for 1 silver is not fun when you've done it more than once. It gets boring. It would be better if more events that contribute to hearts happen more frequently... or if we could just simply talk to the heart vendor and get a mini-event to trigger that will complete the heart once done.

    Considering people love heart so much that season 3 living world got infested with them even tho being 80 zones were we dident have them before is contradictory to hears being boring aint it not?

    Pretty much again. I knew I was happy to see hearts return to the maps. Repeatable hearts? Not so much.

    Yeah, there were calls for hearts, fine. I missed them every so often. I do not recall one ask for repeatable ones. I suppose it makes sense for things like buying zone currency but having to do the heart again because the first time you did not know you would need/could not afford some item? Ugh! This means after I get all my alts geared up with ascended things I still need to go back and do the season 3 hearts solely to buy the minis. Why not just put that stuff in the normal vendor?

    How does map completion (normal way) grants you 1k gold and 5 legendaries? Because if you mean that you should be able to buy these things with real money, you already can.

    I did say I'd be glad to pay gems but I'd also be glad to pay some in game currency too it doesn't make much difference to me as long as I can skip the hearts.

    Which, again, is asking for something to be essentially free. Why would ANet even think to do this if it doesn't make them any money?

    I am a very casual player.
    Very.
    Casual.

    If you're like me and you've done map completion a few times I'm sure you will agree that the single most annoying thing about it is completing the hearts. I absolutely despise them and I would pay almost any price to be able to skip them entirely.

    We can already skip the incredibly annoying Hero Point Challenges. Please Anet, give us another item that lets us skip the god forsaken hearts . Please consider making them purchasable with extra PvP or WvW currencies as well as that would finally give things like badges some use. They could cost any currency you want and I would still buy them regardless, that's how much I detest the hearts.

    Nooope.
    I got concept for one item You would like:

    **Win Guild Wars 2 **
    This item let Your characters be top 1 in any leadderboard.
    You acquire in-game title "Paid for Win".

    Then make it cost a lot of gems I don't care.

    I think ANet does care since the backlash would be epic. The random mount contract proves this out.

    At this point, I think it fair to say the thread has run its course. Again, good luck with your suggestion.

    No longer posting or playing.

    More slippery slope arguments. You just don't get it do you?

    Well, considering others have admitted that the OP’s suggestion would be a slippery slope, I guess it’s you that’s not getting it,

    @Just a flesh wound.3589 said:
    So then tell me. If ANet does sell heart completion in the gemstore what would stop people from asking for the next set of content completion they want to buy? And what would stop ANet from selling more content completion?

    @Kheldorn.5123 said:
    Nothing. As much as nothing stops them now. It's all arbitrary.

    Oh, I forgot. The OP admitted it also.

    @Just a flesh wound.3589 said:

    You’re avoiding my question.

    Once ANet allows auto completion of chunks of the game what would stop people from asking for more and ANet allowing more?
    @Israel.7056 said:
    Nothing logically speaking.

    But we're already at that point.

    No i didn't. I simply pointed out that all you're doing is using slippery slope arguments which are meaningless and pointless. Everything has to be looked at individually. There is no slippery slope.

    Mount contract proves that forum dramas are irrelevant. They didn't change mount licenses, they are still RNG. They just waited 2 weeks and everything went silent. Every single gem store drama ends up this way.

    Is anet publicly traded? If so work out how much 51% of the company costs and multiply that by 800.

    It makes no sense as what you proved that buying rewards with gold is irrelevant. People already can buy legendaries with dollars.
