    Just the amount of enemies since PoF that pull and knock you around. And in the labyrinth! Nothing else in the game gets me as mad as feeling like a tennis ball.

    It's like "cruh-sahnt" vs "quo-saaahhh". Saying it the latter way when you aren't French kinda just makes you look like a tool.

    It's not so much about being French as it is about being in a French-speaking area (like where I live, in, er, France), but yeah, although "pretentious fool" might be closer to the mark. And I'd represent the correct francophone pronunciation as "krwoss(on)" where (on) represents the French nasal vowel - it is possible to hear the R when the French pronounce it.

    Kind of like octopi/octopuses, hehheh.

    "Octopus" comes from a Greek root, so the "correct" plural based on its origin is "octopodes". But it's common and accepted (by most people, except those who think it's a Latin root) to use "octopuses".

    Hmm, another grievance since it's a new post... When I accidentally hit a mob, then the mob goes away and I remain forever in combat, unable to mount, without knowing who I have to kill. So I must go to the character selection and relog in.

    When I have that, I've found it's helpful to kill other things that you encounter as you move away.

    The fact that the first word is graphics is irrelevant - it is very appropriate to pronounce it "jiff" because that's the phonetic pronunciation using standard english rules. This is doubly true since the creator says that's the pronunciation.

    Standard pronunciation rules?
    Sorry, but English is not a phonetic language. IMHO it uses symbols that LOOK like latin letters, but in fact they are just lines that construct non phonetic ideograms for each word. Those ideograms are then pronounced in some way that is socially agreed on (Although not in all places the agreement is the same).
    Once I understanded this, I stopped trying to figure out convoluted and non-relevant pronunciation rules and began just to memorize words by repetition. This improved my use of the language 999%. True story.

    Aaaand... that was another petty grievance from me, thanks.

    I always thought it'd be funny if there were people in-universe who thought the sylvari accents were strange. No one else seems to talk like that, after all! Humans, norn, charr, asura...nobody else has British accents (of varying quality [glares at Faolain^]). It'd be hilarious if there were actually people who asked sylvari, "Why do you pronounce words like that? There's no r in Claw Island!"
    Sylvari: I'm...not? Clawr Island. I said it correctly.
    Human: Ack! No! It's Clawwwwww Island. Clawwww. There's no r!
    Sylvari: Clawr Island! Clawr Island!! I'm saying it correctly! I'm pronouncing it the same way you do!
    Human: [rapid-fire facepalming]
    Sylvari: :grey_question::grey_question::grey_question:

    ^On that note, what the heck happened to Faolain's voice? It started out in a vaguely British accent...sort of...but it slipped every other word, and there was one place in Season Two (when you first go into Caithe's memories) where Faolain's accent audibly slides off over the course of a single sentence until she's just talking in a plain American accent and stays that way for the rest of Season Two and into Heart of Thorns. So, another petty grievance: voice actors who don't even bother with the accent. [Edit: The wiki and the old archived forums has something about this, evidently it was noticed during the release of Season Two and "explained"...it's still rather ridiculous.)

  • for me the most annoying thing is:

    skill lag.

    Which is especially bad for eles and our horrendously long cast times. Bad enough to be static for 4 seconds, but then everything just going poof is even worse.

    So.. anet, when are you going to finally fix your server? Or is it not a problem, because the walking aoe spam fields aka necros aren't really hit by it?

    To this day I wish GW2 tried to make all the zones link together seamlessly without loading screens. Walking from Queensdale to Kessex Hills without loading screens the way, say, World of Warcraft built it's individual continents would have been cool. Yeah it would have taken work to design the game to load and unload the world in the background and long distant waypoints would still trigger loading, but I think it'd have been worth it. \

    Absolutely 0 challenge to the personal story and living world episodes bugs me. Making missions designed around having to solo the whole instance without being defeated would make them much more interesting.

    Having my character shout that their "fury is rising" or similar non important noise. Or the fact that I got treasure... I really wish I could turn that off.

  • Or the screeches from my Eagle that my Druid uses. It gets really loud...

  • I have many characters. I want to see what map I left my character on BEFORE I log in the character. Also would like to see at character select not just the crafting skills but the level for each skill.

  • The god-awful 'sonar' sound effect of Druid attack 1.

  • 'sniff out danger' which I did not ask for to participate in is blocking the sand compass. Really ANET? WHY?

    1. People joining full fractal/raid runs and just leaving without a word because that one level is the only one they needed.
    2. Mentors tagging up for every possible event. Also getting PoF bounties, starting them solo and then just leaving them or laying dead under the bounty.
    3. Too much visual clutter. Cannot see anything during a big fight.
    4. Squad lfg limited to a few modifications. Squad chat limited even to commanders when pinging waypoints.
    5. Social Awkwardness in fractals and people trampling each other while under its effects.
    6. Constant "Would you like to switch map instance for a petty buff?" message even in Mystlock Sanctuary.
    7. Everybody but the druid knows which spirits to run, where to put them and how to play.
    8. People not knowing how to read a lfg, but joining nevertheless.
    9. Druid spirits and glyphs activation time. Avatar skills, specially lunar impact also. Spirits only useful in static combat.
    10. Lack of in-game information about certain collections, events, missions. Have to constantly visit wiki or dulfy for it.

    10 is enough.

    1) Deadeye's. The particular perma stealth, one shot build at that. One should not be able to remain permanently in stealth and 1 shot people in full health out of no where. Like seriously why does it even have that malice mechanic if they dont even have to use it? I mean there are builds that are easy carry. But this is just ludicrous. There is no counterplay to it. Yes one can use reveal. But you do not spam that if you dont see it coming.

    2) Breakbar. Ever since this came out. i got demotivated to play certain builds. I mean the breakbar is a good system, dont get me wrong. Preventing the mob/champ/legend from a lockdown. it creates more dynamic during the combat. But likewise, it also nullifies the type of cc's you throw at it. Sure, each has its own strength. But regardless of the type/duration of cc you throw at it, it first will kill the breakbar in of which afterwards will ALWAYS stun the target for a fixed duration. I wish the last cc that breaks the bar would actually apply the cc effectiveness of that actual skill instead.

    3) Map queue. Speaks for itself. Still encountering many full maps. Put me in a kitten queue. i hate it to spam "join X in map" while seeing someone else ninja'ing right next to me.

    4) QoL changes to build/gear/stat swap. especially for stats on multiple legendary equipments.

    5) visual noise in certain encounters. Reduced the effects on certain skills like aura's, but overblown brightness here and there. GG? (twilight oasis, shattered observatory, etc etc. cough hint)

    Go to sound options and tick the "Disable Player Chatter" box.

    On-topic: Having to reposition the mouse pointer from bottom right to centre every single time you level up when you've used scrolls and/or tomes to power level to whatever height. Let us set an option so we can just instantly hit the top level of the scroll and have the various level-up rewards come as spammable chests in a similar fashion to event rewards.

  • This is pretty petty: Opening each Desert Crafting Material Coffers requires a total of 5 clicks + scrolling (double-click to open, scroll to the bottom of the list for the only items worth choosing after you've already gotten each of the 9 account-bound recipes, click to select, click the Accept button, finally click the Yes confirmation.)

    An improvement would be to place the two items that you will repeatedly select at the top of the scrolling list, and eliminate the final Yes/No choice by letting Accept act as sole confirmation.

    It's very minor in the overall scheme of things, but maybe the dev that sensibly re-ordered the daily achievement categories in most-recent-first order, located on the left side of the Achievements panel, will see this and take pity ;)

    Flying is the same speed as running.

    When a character glides, his base gliding speed is the same as his running speed.
    When a griffon flies, its base flying speed is the same as its running speed.

    I’m not the type to scream realism in a video game, but this really irks me.

    When dealing with inventory management at the bank & trading post (it doesn't seem to matter which one, these people always find me) and there is a huge flash encompassing the whole screen and a very loud, annoying "PHHWWWOOMMMPHH" sound.
    There is usually then a brief pause, during which time I am usually thinking something along the lines of "surely they are not going to do that right here.. again.. ", and then of course it happens.
    PHHWWWOOMMMPHH!, PHHWWWOOMMMPHH!!, PHHWWWOOMMMPHH!!!, PHHWWWOOMMMPHH!!!!, PHHWWWOOMMMPHH!!!!! ....

    Seriously, there is a special circle of hell reserved for all the people who level characters using tomes right next to the bank.

    My grievances are more more often towards people rather then the game itself.

    1. Cheaters/hackers in the game. (Pretty self explanatory...)
    2. Elitist jerks. (Hey fine, you don't want to play with 'noobs'. Sorry your life outside of the game is so terrible/time constrained that you have to be a complete kitten-hat about it.)
    3. The 'PvP culture' that basically encourages the two above. (Try and balance PvP all you want... it's toxic players and try-hard jerks that will keep reducing your PvP and WvW population by making everyone else just walk away from the game modes...)
    4. The Forums. (Not the actual forums themselves. But rather the hyperbolic, over the top tone that it often takes when people start complaining. I mean fine, you don't like something in game. Let people know. Don't act like it's the end of the world and that the Devs are incompetent just because you don't like something...)

    ...
    Hmm. I guess those are hardly 'petty' grievances. shrugs Oh well...

    Part Two

    1.) The overly long aggro and leash range of mobs in POF.
    2.) The massive damage mobs, and the large patrols they added in POF with the overly long aggro ranges, and long range attacks that can kill my ele in two hits because lawl no ability to fight back at range.(no, its not a L2P issue, i dont have any issues on my ranger who can kill them at range, or survive long enough to get into melee.)
    3.) Break Bar damage not shown in the UI.
    4.) targeting completely random yellows or whites when im trying to attack a vet or higher thats knocked me off my mount.
    5.) Not being able to wear the clothes that NPCs have, the hairstyles they have, in the case of Charr the fur colors and patterns they have as well.
    6.) Being forced to listen to NPCs talk over and over to get achievements in the story.
    7.) Not saving some of my tonics and such i got years ago for the novelties tab :(

    Lack of cast bars and the ability to see the target of enemy mobs. I know a lot of players are able to read the movements of mobs and act accordingly, but I tend to have my camera set out far, and with that and the visual clutter seen in any group setting, I get hit far more than I would otherwise.

    In other MMOs like WoW you can see the ability your target was about to use as a cast bar underneath their portrait, and could act accordingly by using an interrupt or a cool down ability. You also could see the target of your target, so if the boss decided to target you for something, it was instantly noticeable and you could prepare/react as necessary.

    Crafting in GW2 is very punishing, I agree completely. BUT, the silver lining is that all end game gear is acquired either through crafting or exchanging currency to NPC vendors, which is a far better experience than killing bosses on a daily/weekly basis and HOPE that the item you want drops, and then HOPE that you are the one to receive it. The lack of RNG in GW2 is very refreshing.

    you and me have a completely different view on RNG with GW2, this game has the worst kind of RNG. (ppl playing for about 6 years and no precursor drop while ppl who play for about 6 months getting 2 in one month)

    Crafting here is fine. Play a game like Aion when you need a craft a yellow weapon which needs to proc to make a orange weapon that also has to proc to get a purple and then that has to proc to get the best stats. If at any point the craft doesn't proc and even fails you need to start over. If i made an ascened weapon in GW2 I get that weapon. I certainly don't want to go though having to do instances to get a drop and hope your roll goes your way. Been there, done that as they say. Maybe explain how to make crafting fun?
    I actually hate the fact if anything, some items are locked behind fractals and dungeons for leggie stuff as it is.

    Well, using your example, having terrible luck and not getting a precursor doesn't restrict you from crafting a Legendary - it just means you either have to spend gold on buying one from the TP, or crafting it yourself. In my sense of the word, having terrible luck in an RNG environment means never getting the item period - ever!

    As to your second point, having played in both systems, I have to disagree. Nothing is more soul crushing than repeating the same content over and over with zero progress to show for it. Yes, accumulating 250 Amalgamated Gemstones is a pretty painful task, but you know every day you complete a HoT meta you are guaranteed 1 of them, and again, you can always purchase them off the TP or craft them yourself out of other materials.

    Imagine instead you needed less than 250 Amalgamated gemstones, but they only had a "chance" of dropping from each HoT Meta chest? It wouldn't feel that great to open the meta chest and get only regular loot.

    There is only one kind of RNG. The worst one. Anything that depends on RNG will be always awful.
    So I concurr with Turkeyspit: I'll choose a boring crafting over an abysmal RNG, any time.

It started out in a vaguely British accent...sort of...but it slipped every other word, and there was one place in Season Two (when you first go into Caithe's memories) where Faolain's accent audibly slides off over the course of a single sentence until she's just talking in a plain American accent and stays that way for the rest of Season Two and into Heart of Thorns. So, another petty grievance: voice actors who don't even bother with the accent. [Edit: The wiki and the old archived forums has something about this, evidently it was noticed during the release of Season Two and "explained"...it's still rather ridiculous.)

    So Faolain stop speaking with British accent and began to speak in USA English once her evilness became irredeemable?
    ...

    She spoke with a British accent in the Twilight Arbor story. Er...what could vaguely be construed as a faux British accent...sort of...it slipped every other word.

    But yes, I suppose the Evil Brit trope can't really apply to her. :tongue:

    fear not this night
    you will not go astray

    anything ascended takes tons of time to get (except things from laurels) and it's always stuck behind the horrid frikin crafting, as long as the crafting system isn't anywhere close to fun i will never enjoy crafting one bit and never get it to 450 let alone 500.

    Crafting in GW2 is very punishing, I agree completely. BUT, the silver lining is that all end game gear is acquired either through crafting or exchanging currency to NPC vendors, which is a far better experience than killing bosses on a daily/weekly basis and HOPE that the item you want drops, and then HOPE that you are the one to receive it. The lack of RNG in GW2 is very refreshing.

    you and me have a completely different view on RNG with GW2, this game has the worst kind of RNG. (ppl playing for about 6 years and no precursor drop while ppl who play for about 6 months getting 2 in one month)
    also, that silver lining isn't anything positive, i rather kill a boss several time then grafting months on end and still getting nowhere close to something useful.

    Well, using your example, having terrible luck and not getting a precursor doesn't restrict you from crafting a Legendary - it just means you either have to spend gold on buying one from the TP, or crafting it yourself. In my sense of the word, having terrible luck in an RNG environment means never getting the item period - ever!

    As to your second point, having played in both systems, I have to disagree. Nothing is more soul crushing than repeating the same content over and over with zero progress to show for it. Yes, accumulating 250 Amalgamated Gemstones is a pretty painful task, but you know every day you complete a HoT meta you are guaranteed 1 of them, and again, you can always purchase them off the TP or craft them yourself out of other materials.

    Imagine instead you needed less than 250 Amalgamated gemstones, but they only had a "chance" of dropping from each HoT Meta chest? It wouldn't feel that great to open the meta chest and get only regular loot.

    and what about instead of a material drop it actually drops the weapon instead?
    like i said, i rather kill a boss a bunch of times than farm and grind the hell out of something just for mats, not to mention the horrible timing and need to play things i seriously hate.

    Elitists and angry kids in PvP who take a video game too seriously. Also, mounted people who stand on my character. I really hate it when people step on me and I'm not even Asura, lol.

    Dying in WvW and seeing multiple lootbags (and sometimes chests with rares in them) appear at my corpse, and there's nothing I can do about it - because by the time I even spawned and was even able to get back, they'd be gone. I think it's the most stupid thing in the entirety of GW2 - I earned that loot fair and square.

    Also, the ridiculous TP fees. You basically get taxed twice. One for listing the item, and then another for actually selling it. No wonder people resort to having to buy gems - because for the average person, they can simply never make enough money for all the goodies that come from the gemstore. It's so wrong on so many levels. At least in Runescape you don't have ANY fees to list something on their equivalent that is 'the grand exchange'.

    No UI customization.

    Yep. Making boons and conditions extremely impactful then making the icons tiny and particle effects galore so you can see neither the icon nor the effect.... Just purely ridiculously bad game design
