[SUGESTION] Should the Anet add wedding system??

Anet should make a weddings system, it would make things in my opinion better for Casual and Hardcore Players. Going into a Raid Lobby or to Divinity Reach and seeing an edate couple makes me so sad. It's really discouraging and just makes me wanna have a break from playing the game. I met my wife online through MU Origin (she was my group leader) and after listening to her bark raid orders to me for so many years well eventually a relationship grew from friendship to something more. She moved to me and we just bought our first house together. I don't see this as any different than meeting someone at a bar or whatever, people lie there too. Just a little easier to tell someone's gender! Anyways, I did my eternal bonding ceremony with my best friend though not my wife because of the rings. They are really the best feature. Please think about the people who play the game and don't have any way of express their devotion in it. This is what the game REALLY need at this moment.

    Resources for a wedding system?

    Give match.com or farmersonly a call....

    Can you explain what you're asking for in more detail, for people who haven't played MU Origin? You said the rings are the best feature - do they do anything? Is there any difference to exchanging two tradable rings in GW2?

    If players want to have a wedding ceremony, either for their characters or themselves, that's already possible, but I assume you're asking for something more than just getting together with friends and holding a ceremony - presumable some game mechanics that give you a bonus or something as a result of marrying another player?

    There is a place in Lions Arch for "Marriages" - Deverol Gardens they even have a Consortium Florist if you don't have roses. They will go well with Wedding Attire Outfit. I don't think much more needs to be added than what we already have. It is just make believe after all anyhow.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you
    
  • If you want to rollplay weddings use [Deverol Gardens] in Lion’s Arch. It even has a [Florist] that sells roses

    According to an interview with Ree Soesbee, this area was designed to give players a place to hold weddings or other important events.

    I have never seen anyone using it so perhaps weddings aren’t a feature that’s important to many people.

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

  • I could use a marriage system to have some of my characters on different accounts get married. My accounts could then have community property and I could transfer account bound items from my alt accounts to my main account, especially if the system allows multiple marriages.

    I know a few people who have had role-play weddings for their characters (meaning it's strictly the characters getting married and not the players) and they've chosen to do it in more out of the way places, or (since they were added) in guild halls, because it reduces the risk of random people or trolls jumping around or spamming skills in the middle of the ceremony.

    I'd need to marry my alt account, plus a couple other guildies - one female who wears the trousers, and another male who has a smashing body. Actually, there's another guy that I'd need to add in for the insurance. (He's a doctor so he can afford to foot the bill for all of us. His other hobbies are cheap.)

    Do you suppose ANet would be up for supporting a 5-way relationship?

    "romance" is a human-centric notion... imagine if an asura wants to marry a charr... not nice.

  • Wellllllll. I once played an MMO where you could form a lovers relationship where you had exp boosts, and got lover tokens time to time that could be spent on nice things. Then there was a private chat between the two of you, the Pillow Talk. If we could have a Lovers thing in our Player/LFG window Y that keeps tabs on how long you're together for and rewards anniversaries would be neat. If we had an experience/magic find/karma boost being in party with each other would be neat. Maybe every ___ amount of time the boost goes up a bit more.

    Maybe use the forum search function to look up wedding, marriage and such. This topic has been discussed already.

    I dunno.... something as complicated as some of the current events stuff? or the home instance garden .... a collection and some set of rules... earning a pair of rings that did something silly like a 5% magic buff when within 100 meters of each other or even making said rings visible?
    Toss it in the gem store..... 800g. Let the people who want the system and others like it pay for it themselves. Give the option of a small icon like the PvP icon that can be toggled?
    I wouldnt buy it personally, but we get little subsytems and temporary content a couple times a year... I think it's a harmless idea that enough people would buy into... at least enough to cover the cost, if not enough to actually prove or disprove the idea of monetizing other ideas like it.

    shrugs... why not?
    I've heard WAY worse ideas get applause.

    Everyone has a way to express their devotion in game. Chat. Words. Telling someone how much they mean to you.

    This is what the game REALLY need at this moment.

    Nope.

    I Agree, but you're wrong and i tell you why youre wrong without offending you or anyone elses opinion. This is my sincere honest view of these particular subject without condemning you or other people's view of these particular subject I believe, based on my experience it is important to feel sympathetic on other people's opinions. So this is why i disagree with you on these subject because this game could use a wedding system.

    "Could use," and, "REALLY need," are two very different things.

    Nothing you said there contradicts what I said so I do not see how you have told me how I am wrong.

    To reiterate:

    1) Everyone does have access to a way to express their devotion in game.

    2) The game does not, "REALLY need," a wedding system.

    Personally I am not opposed to the idea so long as it does not consume resources that would otherwise be spent on playable content and could be effectively monetized.

    I'd rather have them spend resources on something else.

    If you want X, and Y is needed to get get X, you also have to want Y if you really want X. If you don't want Y, you don't want X. It's easy.

    How would marriage work? Would it be character bound or account bound? If it were account bound, wouldn't it technically be polygamy?

    I think getting "officially married" has always been overrated. In some time periods, simply declaring marriage to friends and family was good enough.

  • As much as this feature is cool, I don't think Anet would go down this route. Gemstone 2 a text game had this feature and it was pretty much tinder MMO. So much flirting, cheating, etc.

    Oh hell no, they should concentrate on either expansion or GW3.

    As others have said there is already stuff for that ingame. Weddings are player created and should stay that way. I remember some big wedding events in wow and in rift all player created. There are plenty of places to go and have a scenic wedding. We have dyes to make you a wedding dress or you can buy one. I rather they concentrate on other matters than weddings.

    Any boost from marriage will be problematic, this has been discussed at length and search is your friend. As to pillow talk, I guess you do not know that whisper is a thing and you can add tabs to the chat window?

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

  • I really like this idea but the main issue I find is that all the benefits from marriage might drive people to enter a contractual relationship while not actually leading a married life in-game. All in for actual marriage and benefits but anet should dedicate a team to verify the authenticity of these marriages.

    Would there be some sort of bonus?
    Would the bonus be per char or be account wide?
    Wouldn’t a bonus cause players to “marry” just to get the bonus? (Which would remove any romantic reason to marry and make it a strictly pragmatic transaction).
    Would it be one marriage per account or multiple marriages, and if it’s multiple marriages would there be multiple bonuses?
    Will your spouse have access to your gold? Your bank? Your material storage? Your inventory?
    Can there be divorce?
    Can account bound items be transferred from one account to another? If there is a divorce then does the original owner lose out? What if one person married someone just to scam items from someone else?
    If there is no bonus then why would the game need to add a marriage system? The players can simply do a roleplay marriage, just like they can right now

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

    We have marriage outfits and bouquets. Plenty of stuff for Role Play purposes. We don't need anything official. The marriage systems are more problematic than it's worth.

  • Hey,

    My wife is a huge nerd like me. We started playing Guild Wars 2 together to see if she even liked the MMO experience. I think GW2 has a lot of untapped potential in the RP environment which is not being seized at all. The PvP System is in my Opinion utter trash, but I don't even want to start a discussion on Elitism/Toxicity, I just want to explain why I think anet should add the wedding system. I think there should be something like a ceremonies or rather weddings, by doing this you can get people participating in bonding ceremony and getting bonuses like Experience Booster, Speed Booster, Food, Karma, a very cute mount skin >.< and other utility stuff, maybe even title. All of these bonuses wouldn't apply in PvP or WvW and would be minor, but at least there would be something else to do while grinding. Maybe even starting more friendly parties with guildies (much like Aurora Peachy used to do which really brought the community together, even raiders at times). Other suggestion would be the creation of a buff with an effect that every time i was on the same party as my partner or near by it would trigger it, the idea is quite simple (unknown.png ). One more controversy idea would be the unlimited free TP that can teleport you to your partner easily. Sometimes i think about how people may just be meant to be with one another, then i think about how we were across the country from each other and it was the magic of an online game and a million little decisions and choices that brought us to where we are and it freaks me out a bit. The Gw2 community is very united and with this it can be encouraging to old and new players to grow further or explore more friendships. I can understand that a lot of people may be opposed to this, considering this would make Anet spend some resources, but right now we need more incentive for open world pve.

    PS: My Wife and I would love to attend your ceremony if this goes through. But, we are currently on Europe server so maybe a long distance relationship with free servers transfers strictly to your significant other wouldn't be such a bad idea :)
