    Rev still gives boons to 10 targets.

    What is it using to do this, please?

    double cele radiance fb's gogogo

    There's so many better ways to gear fb than Cele man....

    Agreed
    The temptation is always there to diversify, but it doesn't scale 1:1. When you try to get a little bit better with a secondary role you end up A LOT worse in your main role.

    Shhhh. Everything should be cele with stars sigil and runes. Dye armor in rainbow formation, and wiggle your arms in combat all the while shrieking with a high pitch. This display will strike fear into the heart of most enemies.

    Wait... are you on TC?

    No. 25 thieves, 5 mesmers and 5 rangers.

    They'd do so good vs a group of fb,scourges, revs etc lol

    The TMR zergs will DESTROY everything in their path! Just wait and see! Don't say I didn't warn all of you!

    We may go back to Pirate Shipping for abit.

    My one hope is that Portal Bombing is gonna be viable again for Zergbusting because right now, boonballs are so cancerous that they straight up annihilate any advancing party with no consequence.

    Heck, it's literally just a Tag driving while everyone spills their AoEs on the tag.

    And it works. And I hate it.

    If I play a stupid build, I deserve to die.
    If I beat people on a stupid build, I deserve to get away with it.

    That is WvW combat since the very beginning. I'm not entirely sure what you are expecting to be different. Zergbusting has always been facilitated by maintaining various offensive characteristics over your opponent, usually surprise and skill in the form of tempo/audacity. It has very very little to do with actual game or class balance. If your portal bomb isn't working it's because it's a bad portal bomb, not because the game isn't 'right' for portal bombing. There are videos going back to the dawn of the game of people playing whack a mole with idiots.

    not exactly at that size, but that group compositions do nearly exist alike; and they don't do horrible against groups half of their size (or smaller), sadly. theres usually some necros and glassy eles inside that too for aoe spam

    true, but an engine is the sum of its parts. hence double fb...

    i'm still in denial over this. I was actually in kazo for a short bit.

  • I definitely think we will not go back to a pirateship meta and instead move back towards melee balls again. We will see in 5 days though! Exciting :)

    The increase in CD m8 allow it, keychain will be dive trough and cc casters and try to pk.

    Better positioning will be needed for casters, in compensation, it’s like a bit of everything will be needed rather than stack only aoe classes.

    Stack lots of fb’s m8 be a reaction until people adapt/understand what we will have.

    One thing for sure, gaps between aoe will exist.

    condi meta would be pretty detrimental to this already low population i think, really hoping that doesnt become reality.

    Alliances were announced on the 2nd of February 2018

    Yeah I will do my part definetly.

    The core engineer condi meta today is so strong it usually makes up at least 1 player on the map I am on.

    After the patch?

    The floodgates will open. I except a 100% increase for several hours.

    Dont look a gift Asura in the mouth.
    No seriously, dont. Shark teeth.

  • Junkpile.7439Junkpile.7439 Member ✭✭✭

    One thing is sure. It will be kitten like it's always been. Best way to win is follow commander like some ameba and smash keyboard.

    Meh this balance patch is pretty much the final nail in the coffin for wvw. Its just going to be a bunch of pve guilds spawn afking it for the rewards because I don't expect anyone to be playing this kitten they are trying to push on us going back to horrible condi spamming cancer.

    The meta will be more guards and less of every thing else.

    See ELE forms and you will get my views.

    I think that’s just a secure reaction besides start playing inter stuff, people feel insecure if they can kill faster.

    But damage will still happen...and devs will reduce ally boon targets back to 5 on guard on a later patch.
