Chairs?!?

Ok, I play the game for some years and I know how important fashion is here. If, by mistake, your char will look like another one, you are cursed.....so many customizations, skins, colors that is nearly impossible to find similar looking people.......but then......it comes........the chairs. When I first saw the chair collections I believed that is a test for a future fully customizable home instance (yes, we need it, even ESO got one and is super cool) and I was very happy. But then it started to rain chairs: raiding chair, gemstore chair, normal chair....wth is with so many chairs and why the chair? Why not normal lookig travel novelties like the flying carpet etc. I am confussed.

I mean it looks like Anet said: "We finally implemented a small step for homing instance, let's milk some cash off it. Next time we give them beds." Imagine people lying around in LA in different lookig beds.

    Haha. Yes, I could see beds... After a hard fought battle. Lol.

    I personally find chairs pretty ridiculous.

    I love the idea of different kinds of chairs being weirder than a flying carpet. I know what you mean, but it's still funny.

    And yeah, Derd.6413 pretty much summed it up. They built a whole system for mounts and then realised some small changes would allow them to use the same code on chairs - and players had been asking to sit in chairs since the game came out so they did it. They hyped up this small change like it was a huge thing because it was funny and added a collection to draw attention to it.

    Players picked up on the idea and seemed to really enjoy the new update (and the over-the-top attention it got) so Anet pushed it further and added some purchasable chairs and a couple of raid rewards.

    It's not really any stranger than adding tonics or travel toys or balloons, and if you don't think it's worth buying a chair from the gem store then don't. It does absolutely nothing, so you're not missing out on anything by not having it.

    To be honest, I fail to understand any issues here at all. They are just...chairs and a source of income to pay for content. There are way worse shiny things than these and they cause no one any problems. Plus 3-4 chairs is hardly a major influx of them

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

  • They should know by now that if you do something as a joke (Super Adventure Box) it may turn out that so many like and want more. Yes Super Adventure Box started as an April fools joke and grew into its own major, yearly event.

    I just did not understood how it ended up being a chair and not....idk, a bench where more than 1 ppl can sit.

    Because chairs use the existing player specific mount tech. Multi person seating would be a whole new tech they would have to design.

  • If we ever see multi-person chairs, then expect multi-person mounts in the future.

    We need housing? XDDDD

    and i just want a rock, sitting on it and smoking a long pipe.

  • Chairs would be goofy fun if the camera wasn't pointing well above our heads.

  • DeanBB.4268DeanBB.4268 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I think the chairs are great. Let all the people crying out for housing pay for the next expansion's development by purchasing chairs (and chair skins? :O ) from the gem store!
