Banner fix

Hey folks,
Just a quick note. We're planning on putting up a fix to the banners tomorrow, if things go as planned. The fix didn't make it for the release, but will be in the first hotfix after tomorrow's release.

    Thank you for the info.

    If your team wins it's because of everyone else. If your team loses, blame the thief.
    ranger is OP but holo is more OP so its fine
    Why do this matter at all, you have people asking you why play so bad as fractal god?
    If they would pull that kitten on me, i would sue instantly. And i have enough time and money to finish that.
    Balance? More like a bunch of random nerfs done by interns.

    You know I hope they like change it altogether rather than fixing it, giving warrior some new skills.

    I really don't know where this hope comes from. If you've played this game for any amount of time, you know that's not what they're doing and it's not what's going to happen either. They're fixing an issue that caused problems. They are not going to change any skills, or even introduce new ones for that matter. That's not what this is about.

  • Hi! Do you have any new plans about banners?

  • When are we going to get banners again?

    Wild guess: when they're ready. Pretty sure asking the same question 5 times a day won't speed it up.

  • Turn them back into bundles, make bundles disappear when you mount. Done.

    Banners are working again.
    In a surprising twist, some commanders eyes have been open to squads without banner warriors. So, less waiting in LFG for looking for banner warrior.

  • /e hugs the Devs because he got his banners back

    On a serious note, I barely understand what really happened but I'm glad it was fixxed

    Maybe we should randomly shut down specific builds from time to time to force people to try new things. ;)

    Please don't.

    I think Mirage is the thing that needs to be shut down, being superior because of "confusion" got boring(on some bosses its insane). Also, I want to see people doing Largos without a single mirage lol, that would put a bit of a challenge.

    Rotating challenge each week in pvp, wvw, fotm, and raids. Each week one trait line, core or espec, is locked. Get gud scrubs lol.

    That's how Largos was one done when it first came out. Condi Scourge and Soulbeast was popular.

    Or you could 'fix' things that way, that they feel less boring. In my opinion banners are still not fixed, because of boring design ^_^" Merry Christmas btw.

    The Banner Rework is better now than in the past, it's no longer boring to me. Did you like the previous banner skills design? Happy Holidays!

    No, it's true that the new design is much better than the old. But i would prefer a more active and situational game play.
    Something like:

    • Use the active skills of the old banner (Fury on Discipline or Regen+Heal on Tactics) when you summon a banner
      or

    • Use this skill actively on the position of the banner after summoning
      or something like this.

    Getting rid of the bundles instead of making them better was lazy.
