    Queensdale map chat is standard annoying, so i mostly turn of chat when there. Don't know what it is over there, but its not as frequent in other areas/maps.

    It's the human initial area, so it's most likely more crowded by new players and idiots alike.

    Someone once told me (in the Labyrinth of course) that not only are rangers the only profession with knockback skills but that all ranger weapons and all pets cause knockback and there is nothing the ranger can do to prevent it.

    Thankfully other people confirmed that a ranger using sword/torch and axe/torch cannot cause knockback (this was before HoT so no Glyph of Tides) and then a mesmer owned up to never having read the description for Illusionary Wave and promised to stop using it and even though the guy still insisted rangers constantly knockback enemies all the time the problem mysteriously stopped.

    Someone once told me rangers don't have a learning curve, they have a cliff. Most professions you can work out gradually but rangers are either really easy or very difficult.

    I'm not entirely sure that's true, I feel like it's just a matter of being willing to try different weapons and pets which isn't really any different from most professions. But I like the description of a learning cliff anyway, and I can think of some games where it's definitely appropriate.

    Primary offender is still bearbow. If I'm in open world and someone baps a critter away from me, I just walk away and let them have it. -_-

  • One called "World Restructuring" for WvW players.
    Only 1 Anet guy working on it and we believe it will be completed and be part of GW3.

  • "Don't use chilling reaper in group content. It makes everyone slower."

    Not sure what (s)he meant with that but it sounded odd.

    And something that sounded odd to me but not sure if it it. A warning from a complete stranger (more like a rude threat) to change my hunter pets name or they would report me for breaking name policies and get me banned. The pet is the pink moa bird I named "Floyd". (Yes pun intended.) Haven't really dared use the name anymore just to be sure, which is a pity.

    I can't reiterate the stuff I see in the game at times but there have been many cases where I'm chilling in a town and the Chat is just full of the most random, crazy and often hilarious nonsense I've ever read XD

    God bless those with warped and creative minds because you really do amuse the hell out of me at times XD
    It's always a good laugh when the chat goes randomly nuts like that lol

    Maybe Floyd is a dirty word in another language? At which point, I don't think ANet would action you for it.

    Also, it's kitten near impossible to report a pet name. It's pretty much a screenshot and support ticket. There ought to be a better system for reporting actual violations.

    I think it's aimed at the (pun intended by me) name of real live band "Pink Floyd" and the rules state you can't use trademarked names, names of real celebrities. So i think Floyd on his own would be fine, but if you get the pun, it technically breaks the rules i guess.

  • Even if ArenaNet got the pun, and I'm sure they would if they looked, they would not action the account. Only if the patent-holders of 'Pink Floyd' complained, which I can't imagine would ever happen. If so, ArenaNet would just ask you to change the name.

    Slaps her own forehead. Next time check the urban dictionary :) ok... that makes sense. Learn something new everyday ^^ Yeah ok... the bird gets a new name now for sure :) I'll stop derailing the thread now.

    Well, punishing some older person or someone who is otherwise behind the times because they didn't look up their pets name on urban dictionary first to see if it's "offensive" is ageism.

    Besides, I'd be more worried about the person looking for references like that just so they can report.

    "The name of your pet offends me."

    Tbh, I've seen some rangers with very offensive pet names (Like this one with a Black Bear which the name was a derivate of the N word). But I'm assuming the pet in question problably only had a dumb name?

    I don't pay attention to what people say about my pet names. I'm not intentionally offensive. I try to use puns as much as possible; "Megan" Fox, "Missing" Lynx, "That's so" Raven, "Jump the" Shark, and so on.

    I have seen a thread regarding how to turn in a person for an offensive pet name.

    That reminds me of another one. When people see my pet raven's name: "You know the raven in the poem isn't actually called quoth".

    To which I always say "Yeah but the one in Discworld is". Some people accept that, some try and tell me that means Terry Pratchett didn't understand the poem (he did, the character did not) and some actually tell me they've never heard of Discworld, in which case I tell them I'm sorry to hear that.

    What's Discworld?

    Sorry, couldn't help myself.

    Thats correct, also may add if the name is banned for players it will also be banned for pets. So I say go back to using Floyd .

    If a Ranger enters WvW he is either a Roamer who knows what he is doing or someone who has no idea what he is doing.

    The first variant is alot less common.

    From a WvW perspective the last one is almost always true.

    To be fair, I don't think any player is going to be doing very great when first entering a competitive game mode, no matter how skilled they are as an individual, as they need to get a feel for the competitive gamemode first, whether it's PVP or WvW. Of course some classes carry better than others.

    On topic:
    I recall someone being rather stubborn over the concept of level scaling. They claimed GW2 mobs do not scale, and that their red attributes meant that their gear was broken. When people tried to correct them, they kept on arguing.
