    Before implementing mounts to WvW they need to do a great analysis of all objectives, if not wrong in EB a tower is without walls on a certain side, because it's on a higher ground, so if you have a jumping mount you can enter inside and take that tower for free.
    Not sure about other objectives, but for sure mounts with full mobility unlocked could be able to bypass lots and lots of towers or keeps.

    What is this erroneous assumption that Mounts would have all the abilities and masteries that they have in PvE?

    I have gliding maxed in WvW, and I don't recall being able to catch updrafts, or ride ley lines. Or drop bombs.

    I can glide with infinite endurance, which might have been a mistake, but it's not a full copy paste of PvE.

    One would assume the same for mounts. Odds are they will have ONE mount, most likely just the raptor. Or even the skimmer, as it's slowest, the engage does little damage (assuming they even allow engage skills) and it's evade ability is limited.

    My guess is ANet finally added the legendary WvW skins for the final armor sets. We'll all /laugh at them but they are in.

    EDIT: Nevermind, it is randomized finishers. Wow, totally over thought that. /wink /s

  • Did they ever announce what the exciting thing was?

    If mounts are implemented and it works like gliding, players won't be able to activate a mount in hostile territory so no worries about being able to bypass hostile barriers.

    At this point, which day exactly will they announce this WvW update?

    Most of my guildmates are against mounts and I certainly will significantly reduce my available gaming hours for other games.

    Just stick it into EOTM if people want mounts so bad in a pvp environment you might get tags and blobs back that way in there.

  • Most likely when they do their community wvw stream is my best guess. I always miss that so I don't know when to watch.

    Seems like there should be a guild chat coming soon, good place for extremely awesome announcements.. Maybe it was mounts and they actually do read the forums.

    From the ‘that’s a really bad idea’ department: At next relink we will be merging NA and EU. We will be pairing the most populated NA server with the least populated EU server, and the most populated EU with the least populated NA. Links will remain as they are currently. We will not create any further tiers. The servers will be based in Madagascar to even out the lag.

    Thank You for the {MEME}

    That's not what I would be most worried about, but you can wipe complete zerg in your own territory by using mounts abilities then.
    Also it gets way easier to defend keeps and towers cause you can enter them anywhere. Which is pretty bad, because that's already easier than taking the keep or tower

    If the really exciting news is "mounts" I may just quit playing tbh.

  • X T D.6458X T D.6458 Member ✭✭✭✭

    If I had to guess its legendary weapon/trinkets. It would likely work by upgrading the ascended version like we have with armor.

    No, but it would boost population for a few months with afk pip farmers, supply wasters in smc, and clueless people using magic find food and running around in zerk gear getting one shotted. On the bright side, more bags :)

    Somewhere chasing bags....

  • People keep talking about mounts or getting rid of down states, which may or may not be nice from a certain point of view, but certainly not "Extremely Awesome" Anything short of having to fight zerg on zerg on zerg over an open pit of viper quaggan, who viciously crunch any player falling to their clutches, will fall short of that term for me. But I am open to being surprised.

  • Everything legendary for wvw would be an awesome change!

    As a perma-tier 4 CD lyfer, you wouldn't believe how good Chocolate Omnomberry Cream is. You don't need good food against anyone who drops into T4.

    CD has tier 4 down to a science. Never push anything but last place while the other two servers keep the body bags flowing.

    You know, they don't have to implement every mount with every ability and upgrade. They could develope one with a very different ability more balanced for wvw.

    Anet buff me :-(
    Make me good at game!

    I think they will do some performance fix etc. And introduce the brand new Amazon Servers that came in December 2018 in Sweden.

    As I know the closest servers before that was in Netherlands. Most of my friends close to Netherlands have better ping than I have in WvW.
    Most of Europe have 40-60ping.

    But we can always hope for some performance boost / fix.

    Cheers!

    Obviously the announcement is going to be they're adding a Battle Royale mode to wvw, it's the new bandwagon these days.

    Eotm map will be converted to support this change.
    It will not be blue green red sides, all gates will be removed.
    It will not have scoring, and chests will be randomly placed around areas of interest, these chests will provide for you a random weapon for your class or an armor piece of the blue green yellow qualities, you can also loot player corpses and hope they have armor for your class type. The keep may have some extra goodies.
    Games will comprise of 15 teams of either 3 or 5 player groups, who will spawn in randomly at the 4 front points of interest in each side and the 3 towers, not the keeps or supply areas.
    If you solo queue, you will given a random blue item to begin with when the match starts.
    Banners will be placed around the middle area to display the current kill leader and mug shots of their team, you can buy additional poses in the black lion shop, chair poses are also usable, outfits and black lion weapons would also look super cool here wink wink twitchy wink.
    The area will shrink 2 times every 5 mins down to the small middle area of the map, first to the outer tower ring, then down to the supply depot ring.
    The winning team will spawn in lion's arch so they can immediately brag about it in general chat, plus awarded 1 gold, and you can also earn pips while in the battle royale.
    Also a 2 gold entry fee, have to keep the wvw cost to reward tradition intact.

    Is this fake? I can't find it on Twitter, the date & time of the tweet is missing, and the language sounds off.

    I got it from a WvW discord. I considered it credible. It doesn’t look shopped to me.

    Edit: others in that Discord are now saying it’s fake too, so consider my earlier post with scepticism. My mistake.

    Just asking real quick - has there been anything from ANet to confirm this announcement aside from what the devs said in a stream? Seems to be too much speculation from just a brief moment in a stream.

    with mounttraps that throw you off the mount + knockdown for 5 seconds, this could be fun.

    Although I would love for my guardian to be more mobile between points of interest I don’t see how mounts can be added without causing some type of exploitative issues.

    Even if you remove the Skirmish Tickets from the vendor, ascended armor pieces are around 20g more expensive then their crafting counterparts.

    Sell your memories of battle and craft your gear.

    Even if you have to lvl your crafting profession first.
