GW2 Engineer needs UT style proxy mines

I was looking around my old computer for some sound files to use on a Adafruit sound effects board I bought and came across my Unreal Tournament install. It got me to thinking that the GW2 engineer needs UT style proxy mines. For those that have never played UT, proxy mines are happy face mines that would bounce around the battlefield verbally taunting in a cartoon chipmunk voice until they hit someone. It'd be really fun in WvW.

    While they sound amusing, it also sounds like they'd rely more on luck than skill. Some of the recent sigil and rune changes seemed to be made to eliminate the effects of good/bad luck, so I don't think they'd go for this.

    Lip synching is just mime karaoke.

    Well not many remember those ,and personally been more of a fan of the avp marine mine gun.
    That one had everything you needed ,from proximity to timed to electric etc.
    That aside the development team been pretty hardcore on not making any specialist build outside the typical straightforward dps buff heal.
    They really should go and play ANY specialist hero on heroes of the Storm to understand what new mechanics and fun game play is.
    And they really really need to take customization up for skills several notches to allow more variety on playstyles.

    The Blizzard IP that just got cancelled due to unpopularity?
    That's the development path advice you'd give Anet?

    Hots isn't canceled,simply blizzard pulls the usual dumb move of moving the entire staff into a new IP.
    This been a common issue dating back to d2 which been happening with every new product coming up for practically 2 decades now.
    And I didn't say to become blizzard,simply I point at one of the best examples on what gameplay innovation is about.

    If it weren't the least successful thing on their roster I might agree with you.
    But if great gameplay leads to dead games you can hardly blame devs for generally avoiding it.

    Can you drop the trolling down a notch?

  • i always wished that engi have different mines that work as real mines hidden like ranger and dh traps

    When did the definition of trolling expand to reiterating facts?
    You might like HotS, but some people liked Crystal Pepsi and New Coke too

    And elite could be controllable nuclear missile. You could shoot it from spawn, fly it inside sm lord room and one hit everybody.

    Low quality trolling since launch

    As long as I can ride along in View Mode, and be able to view the enemy’s chat after it hits?
