Where it is ? ...

    I'm fine with or without a dismount skill, but this is to me far more bizarre than the apparent lack of progress on alliances. It's something they said they were going to do, something ppl seemed to react to positively, something they said was pretty much ready for deployment, then just nothing, total radio silence. It's weird . . .

    Exactly the same with Swiss for PvP. "Mmm yea we'r totally on it, it's absolutely here by july 2018".
    Over a year later? "Heeey swiss will be a feature with the next episode! Stay tuned!"

    Yeah at least they keep talking about Swiss though, so it's more like alliances in that way. The dismount button has gone from 'almost here' to completely off the radar . . .

    That's not really the point at all though. Idc about actually getting the skill and if they came out and said they changed their minds about implementing it I'd be fine with that . . .

    The point is that it's something they said they were going to do, that many ppl do want, that they said was almost ready and that they have since completely ignored. It gives credibility to the ppl who believe they aren't really working on alliances at all any more either . . .

    In all fairness, in the post they made about it they did mention that it was going to take some time (iirc there was a section for fixes now, fixes in the near future and fixes for a longer period of time...or something of that format)

    You're thinking of the original post from March which listed the dismount skill as a medium-to-long term goal. When ppl complain about the dismount skill they are thinking -- I hope -- of the June post which indicated it was the update that was farthest along and ready for art requests . . .

    I do appreciate your forcing me to look that up though bc I'll admit it feels like that second post was from a lot longer ago . . .

    The dismount button is located on the action hot bar exactly to the right of the elite skill and right above the novelties epic button to end all buttons,exactly where the mount button is when you are not mounted.It is only visible when you are already mounted.
    I hope this was helpful.

    Honestly, If I had to pick alliances or anything that nerfs the mount. I'd pick the latter in a heartbeat. It just never ceases to amaze me how something as overpowered as mounts hasn't been adjusted yet.

  • As I said in the post about dismounting people and saving the time and money going into making a dismount skill. Make mounts one hit, so any combat hit from another player dismounts them, remove the knockdown effect from being dismounted, so when the other player is dismounted by combat, they are ready to fight and can defend them selves. I would like to see the dodges removed as well, but keep them if you like or have them linked to your toons dodges. Once this is done, you can even out running speed, as this nerfs roaming and small scale where escaping when trying to ninja something is dead because you can never get away in enemy territory, and it will no longer be needed once any hit dismounts. So the mount can still be used for mobility, those wanting to get back to a zerg can in the same amount of time, they just have to pay a bit more attention and can't run straight through an enemy zerg anymore. And roamers can still get fights and cut off reinforcements to a zerg or structure.

    This doesn't require work and time on a new skill that could be going into something else, it doesn't require more art or animations etc etc and should have been able to be released in a week. But instead, here we are with alliances 2.0.

    I'm confused about what the mount was supposed to do. Initially I thought it was introduced to make it easier for players who would only play when there was a tag to follow so they could get back to their zerg without interference. I was fine with this bc if there is a way for players to let me know they're not worth fighting that's a plus for me. But now all the nerfs seem to be geared towards eliminating that advantage of the mount. So what is the point then . . ?

    The point was blanket protection for people who don't want combat, but to ktrain all day and not have anyone stop them.

    No, you can't do anything, including ktrain, without getting off your mount. So that was not the point . . .

    If so it would be still ok, bc mount is for unskilled Players that got eaten by better Players, or Players Who focused roaming instead of zerkplay.... however the mount is just wrong in a pvp mode ...

    Huh mounts are there for roamers?

    Ty changed it 🤪

  • You mean they want less of a disadvantage?
    It's the same discussion as in the 20 threads before. You are already at a huge advantage when you are on a roaming class with cookie cutter build. You have more mobility, more burst, better sustain and you can cherrypick your fights.
    The mount changes one of that advantages. You still can roam, fight, gank or run around the ruins as you did before.
    Deal with it.

    Disciples of the monkey god [Apes]

  • Gankers are the ones you see 10-15 pull off from a zerg mounted up to chase one roamer, as roamers are the ones that are ganked the most as we are almost always alone or out numbered. People who get killed by someone running back to their zerg who get killed are getting killed, not ganked with few exceptions.

    Your definition of ganking differs from the one used in mmorpg for 20 years. It's not about "having greater numbers" only, but being "higher level" which in GW2 is basically you are build for something where you have a great advantage. That's why most people who call themself roamers mostly attack scourges, eles and other people that can't fight back and the majority of people doing this do this more than once.

    And no, roaming isn't dead because you don't have a dismount button. It's dead because the power creep and unbalanced roaming builds.

    It was never meant for WvW and never balanced for it...

    And?

    I mean if this was an actual RvR game where the classes, mechanics, etc were all designed and balanced around WvW, then sure you'd have a point.

    Problem is WvW was a side project tacked on by some devs looking through their rose tinted spectacles at DAoC. The classes, mechanics, etc were designed around sPvP, then nearly entirely balanced around sPvP until HoT, when they also started to design/balance for PvE raids.

    WvW meanwhile has been nothing but a distant third in this regard the entire game and basically just gets the odd crumb, which even then is normally only aimed at large scale. Hence in WvW the classes/builds/mechanics have always been an imbalanced farce that were designed and balanced for the needs of other game modes. The notion that imbalance is suddenly an issue because of that pattern repeating itself with mounts is laughable, WvW has always been an imbalanced, low skilled, cheesefest where core concepts like risk vs reward have always been a joke.

    No, a handful of people are mad, because some of the imbalances they were fine with got changed to a different type of imbalance with mounts that they didn't like. Basically crocodile tears from people who don't genuinely give a toss about balance, risk vs reward, etc. ;)

    I see this in EBG a lot where there will be a guy hiding in the path from the garrison (keep.... whatever) to wherever the action is and sets up to repeatedly snare those individuals taking the fastest route back to eh action after they've been killed.

    Also I thought that was the reason why ganker rhymes with w****r - because they are frustrating.

    So you are upset that you got killed by someone in a PvP mode?

    That doesn't make it ganking. Also, there are some annoying and over tuned builds, however I have yet to see a "unbeatable build", if you have one or know of one, please do share.

    post a video of you using crusader gear and celestial gear on a DD Tempest dismounting a player thats running away on a mount.

    show me how you adapted. Show me that you can put your money where your mouth is and you'll have my credibility and silence on the subject.
    Ive asked about 8 users to do this for me, will you be the first?

    until then, I believe immunity to soft and hard CC, 3 evades and 10k extra health is too much and severely imbalanced.

    True words.

    The mount is the most the gamebreaking s..t ever implemented, no balance issue, no op build no nothing is just even close to this topic.

    Btw. Second are all the lazy anti stealth (anti teef) implementations.

    Problem is WvW was a side project tacked on by some devs looking through their rose tinted spectacles at DAoC. The classes, mechanics, etc were designed around sPvP, then nearly entirely balanced around sPvP until HoT, when they also started to design/balance for PvE raids.

    WvW meanwhile has been nothing but a distant third in this regard the entire game and basically just gets the odd crumb, which even then is normally only aimed at large scale. Hence in WvW the classes/builds/mechanics have always been an imbalanced farce that were designed and balanced for the needs of other game modes. The notion that imbalance is suddenly an issue because of that pattern repeating itself with mounts is laughable, WvW has always been an imbalanced, low skilled, cheesefest where core concepts like risk vs reward have always been a joke.

    And?

    That's the whole point and why people are mad, balance has been left behind and more and more ridiculous things have and are being added.

    No, a handful of people are mad, because some of the imbalances they were fine with got changed to a different type of imbalance with mounts that they didn't like. Basically crocodile tears from people who don't genuinely give a toss about balance, risk vs reward, etc. ;)

    Yep, this is pretty much as good a summary as I've seen of the entire mount kerfuffle, it all comes back to that inability to adapt . . .

    post a video of you using crusader gear and celestial gear on a DD Tempest dismounting a player thats running away on a mount.

    show me how you adapted. Show me that you can put your money where your mouth is and you'll have my credibility and silence on the subject.
    Ive asked about 8 users to do this for me, will you be the first?

    until then, I believe immunity to soft and hard CC, 3 evades and 10k extra health is too much and severely imbalanced.

    This exhibits some confusion about what adaptation is. When the rules everyone plays by change, adaptation is the ability to change with them, not the ability to obviate them. You don't need someone to show you how to use a DD Tempest with crusader and celestial gear to dismount a player, you need to adapt your perspective to accept that the game is not designed to allow a DD Tempest with crusader and celestial gear to dismount another player . . .

    I don't have any videos of myself playing a video game bc to me that would be weird but I promise you I have never dismounted another player. I fight players who want to fight. If they would rather run, sometimes I chase them, and sometimes when they stop running I'll fight them there, and sometimes when they stop running I'll run instead, as circumstances dictate. Bc I can adapt to change . . .

    So by your own words... Tempest is not meant to dismount players... the heavily time gated gear thats essential to WvW is also useless in WvW because of the mount....

    The mount which is a new addition that was added to the game that had no prior balancing for mounted combat over the course of 7 years....

    And you're still going to say its balanced? Just "adapt" by not playing my favourite build and class in one of my favourite game modes.... Ya know, judging from server statuses lately and the recent drastic drop, I'd say most took that advice.

    Do you understand why its not balanced or? do you understand the effects this has across the game mode?

    eg:
    do you like to be one shot? because thats the only viable build for the most part due to the imbalance.
    the other option is balance, something that allows people to play bruiser builds and battle it out for a min or 2, not a second or 2.

    need to look past face value and understand that balance is like an eco system or food chain, if you remove the flies the spiders will die, then the birds and so on.

    Not to brag, but I put together a puzzle in 4 days and the box said 2-4 years.

    WvW was never balanced around small encounters and never will be. How you choose to play the mode is entirely on you.

    Playing the PvE scene because WvW is just "BAD"...

  • I do like the cheekiness of this post considering we all know that skill doesn't exist in game. Can I dismount people? Sure. Usually folks get away unless I'm close enough on a Soulbeast or happen to get lucky loading someone up with a kitten ton of conditions. At least 50% of the time I see folks trying to get away only to die horribly as they leap off a cliff or something.

    It was never balanced around mounts either and I agree completely, just waiting on that dismount skill.

    WvW was never balanced around small encounters and never will be. How you choose to play the mode is entirely on you.

    There is and has been lots of balance around small scale fighting in WvW, most if not all of the DPS builds people cry about are not viable in zerg play, including many of the Thief and mes builds that have been nerfed due to how over tuned they were (or cheese) in small scale. Sadly thief over all suffered hard due to the DE cheese and marked debuffs.

    Also, before the dev team working on WvW was disbanded, there was serious talk about how to break up the blob, as well as make small scale more rewarding etc etc.

    The problem is that some people favor one type of play over another, however those who enjoy zerg play want to act like small scale or 1vs1 is evil and should not exist, and they like to brush it off as nothing to worry about. That is not a healthy mindset for the players or game. While balance doesn't focus on 1vs1 fighting, it also does not fully focus on zerg play either, however adding something to the game that in large ways favors greater numbers (at whatever scale) and is one of the main factors for absolutely gutting roaming is a whole other issue altogether.

    Those who enjoy zerg play enjoy it because it favors their game play and at this point have become spoiled to it.

    When build templates come out (haha, I know right?), I wonder what the excuse will be for being killed by a roamer on a 1vs1 build, when at that point, all they would have had to do was click a button to load their 1vs1 build and then click it again once they get to their zerg to swap back. I am willing to bet it's going to expose even more of the skill gap between the two camps.
