    Idk how serious you are but...

    Found these cool sounding titles back when Eotm was running its initial testing phase/period. I wonder if they could ever be implemented (into WvW not eotm) like they did when they re-hauled WvW title requirements?

    I know people will say, "Any content > no content", but this is BASIC stuff that other companies pop into their game over the course of a day. I don't understand the reluctance of Arenanet to implement new titles - as a player, it's frustrating to see the system in-place but with a severe lack of content (this can be said for MANY Arenanet systems, such as Guild Missions, WvW Guild Upgrades etc - these systems looked like they were going to get regular content updates, but Anet now has a reputation for focusing on novelty instead).

    How about profession specific titles?

    Warrior - Invulnerable king of the Nike.
    Thief - Thief?! What thief?! I see no thief?!
    Mesmer - Star wars II Attack of the clones.
    Ranger - Pew Pew watch me run!

    More suggestions welcome.

    They should never have dropped the requirements for the ones we have. When they did a lot of vets insta-got them which dropped their value on that day.

    Lol, the stonemist titles were impossible to get.
    Even with 2 zergs just standing there and cap it every 5 minutes (takes longer than 5 minutes with buff and lord)
    It would have taken several years of nonstop flipping to get it.

    Take stonemist 100.000 times.
    Even with instantcapping and just 5min timer you could cap it every 10 minutes.
    Thats 1.000.000 minutes /60/24/365 is 1.902 years of constant flipping.

    Yea give back old numbers.

    Newsflash, it's been several years. IMO They should have left them as long-term objectives, we'd still have completed them by now but at least people might feel like they achieved something - you know... like the word "achievement" suggests?

    Newsflash, realisticly you still wouldnt be able to have it.

    Did you not think about what i wrote? 1.9years with capping it EVERY 10 minutes 24/7 without taking any breaks inbetween. Now think about how often stonemist castle is actually being capped and tell me your big newsflash again.

    Ps. To put it i to another perspective.
    We just assume the game is already 8 years old (release was 28. August 2012)
    Thats would be 8*365=2920 days.
    100.000/2920=34.25 stonemist caps per day.
    34.25 (i know you cant flip it just a quarter) stonemist flips each and every single day, for 8 years straight.
    Even if you played 24 hours each day for 8 years you would have to flip it more than once per hour.
    THATS the most hardcore karmatrain ever, and you would need 2 of those, one who caps it back, so you can retake it.

    What I would like is a WvW without the kitten bugs we could see with this marvelous patch.

    I would like a WvW with a content that really help people to enjoy it.

    I would like a WvW, in the end, that devs really know and understand, so their updates would make sense and not just a bunch of changes for the sake of making changes.

    Was this opinion formed before or after God knows how many people 'farmed' Ultimate Dominator in the old style Obsidian Sanctum? ;)

  • Since you guys seem to forget, that we can just check how many Keeps there have been flipped: Highest Rank: 4001 SM Flips

    100.000/4000 = 25 So 25x 7,5 Years = 187,5 years

    I dont think you will get this Achievement.

    On another page: Sure, why wouldn't we want new grinding Content. But then I just remember how badly WvW is working even though Player numbers have been capped to About 60% of what it was before. Performance is gone down the drain. Especially to useless new Features like Mounts. (You cant even hit them on a normal Server, because the tickrate is so crappy, that they are more then 600" away before you can actually cast an attack). We stil have 4 Maps of which two are a complete copy (So they didn't create more then 3 Maps in 7 years). My PvE Playing Friends have 6 figure Gold, while I have 70. Because Loot is stil kitten in WvW and playing it is much more costly then anything else. Dont get me going on balance.

    And there is one million other Problems which are not addressed, but im sure new grinding Content will help the game. What else could, if not that.

  • aspirine.6852aspirine.6852 Member ✭✭✭✭

    They could introduce one matchup lasting titles if you want show off ones. You would need to do some serious killing in the matchup to make them impressive.

  • No, enough with the ego-fanning

    Nay, man. It's bad enough with the grinding and the 'walking-light-bulb' commanders already.

    I can get 65 AP for playing the new event for 2 hours with one hand.

    The number of AP your Idea of achievment would have to give would be insane.

    Like 5000 Ap at least to become maybe worth the time needed.

    Plus the title: Legendary time waster.

    It's an MMO, and it's also a vaguely competitive game mode. How can you not have ego fanning?

  • Something not harming the WvW is a big plus. And some new titles cannot harm.
    What do you say? It also cannot help? Well, this is. At least we will know that ANet still considers WvW as part of their own game.

    Still the implementation should be done in such a way to avoid the following issues:

    Although the number seems ok and like other achievements we already have - 100 000 drinks for example - the minimum amount of time involved will most probably discourage the new players, at the beginning of their WvW activity. Not every payer has almost 2 000 years to spend in a game =)

    Also, the new achievements should be obtainable by all the players, with no discrimination:

    I just do alot of defense, a bit of roaming and mostly seek out small fights, rarely joining the tag.

    Alot of high-rankers got there with Birthday boosters, zergballing, EoTM ktrain, etc. Very few did it "properly", and this is common knowledge, heck; its why alot of people even played WvW for a long time, purely for the thrill of rapidly gaining ranks and rewards.

    Its not even reflecting of playtime because anyone who does small scale, roaming, home BL defense, gets low WXP over time.

    This game is 7 years old. Even without boosters, one can be at least mithril rank, if playing wvw regularly. Being rank 300 after 6 years means that you dont really play much wvw.
    We also know not to underestimate low rank players because many have alt accounts. But when you see that core ranger, with full signets, doing 2% dmg on a T0 wall with a superior cata, well...

    While this may seem funny to vets, the same kind of mentality is why WvW has terrible player uptake these days. For the record, I've been playing WvW for ~6 years, and am semi well-known, but my rank is still below 300 because I don't WXP farm.

    I just do alot of defense, a bit of roaming and mostly seek out small fights, rarely joining the tag.

    Alot of high-rankers got there with Birthday boosters, zergballing, EoTM ktrain, etc. Very few did it "properly", and this is common knowledge, heck; its why alot of people even played WvW for a long time, purely for the thrill of rapidly gaining ranks and rewards.

    Its not even reflecting of playtime because anyone who does small scale, roaming, home BL defense, gets low WXP over time.

    Please don't look down upon low rank players, especially if they're new, unless you specifically know they're bad.

    Its great cause ive been here for 7 years, and am only rank 313. I stay away from wvw because of just how -bad- it is a game mode. i do play it quite a bit when im required to though. I go there solely for GOBS most of the time, but i spend alot of time there -after- i obtain one. My server however is -dead- when im able to play, so getting wxp takes way way longer.

    I love scouting, and capturing camps. I really dont enjoy large scale fights so i avoid those. sometimes i help with keeps and towers, capturing camps that are constantly being sat on by enemies takes even longer than it would normally.

    Maybe if i could play without getting ganked i would play more, but theres so little counterplay to the builds i encounter the most, that i dont care to try and learn. As it i dont recommend wvw to new players. Its less toxic than pvp sure, but its not much better.
