    If they did a mount they could just make it like 1 mount that does something wvw related and the rest are not allowed. I mean if the rabbit is allowed in enemy territory than the whole system goes down. But they might make a new wvw mount just for us, and for hte low low price of 2000 gems he will have a cool skin!

    The biggest problem is the mobility that even 1 mount without any skills would give. U won't take any camp, no tower, no keep, cuz zerg of springer will chase the kitten out of u

    make prepardness baseline plz

    I assume you meant jump the kitten out of you.

    No seriously, dont. Shark teeth.

  • What I understand about what will be new to WvW, is, everyone will be moved to one server (BG) so they never lose a matchup, ever again, wvw problems solved(using ANET logic)....ANET logic, to quote Megadeth, two words combined that can't make sense.

    Wait, why are they posting the wvw updates (using the word 'update' very loosely here) on twitter and not the official forum's wvw subsection?
    That's certainly an interesting policy.

    Unrelated, up here in Canada snow days aren't a thing. Maybe I'll convince Trudeau to send some extra plows down to help out with the roads between Anet's place of employment and their houses.

    Are you serious, I live near NF Ontario and the kids have had snow days literally like 5 times in the last month lol.

    Yeah last storm was pretty big up here also. After the snowplows, the side snow near roads are over 5feet high at a lot of areas...

    1. The announcement is delayed for 1 week due to snowy weather
    _Ray posted some images to which the northern-european parts of the audience chuckled good because it looked like every other day to them.

    While I get it, this makes sense. The local area is very hilly (carved by glaciers, no less) and the area does not have the deicer or plows to handle anything but the major freeways... Which means many people were stuck at home.

    With that said, as someone who lives and breaths tech, it is unusual for a technology-centric company to forgo all work due to snow days. As long as you have power and Internet at home, which a good portion of King County and the City of Bellevue (ANet), did not have. Primarily the residential suburbs like Duvall/Carnation.

    As much as I can understand unsafe driving conditions etc keeping people from work or any other commitments,it’s seems unusually that a announcement is sent out announcing that the announcement has been delayed. An announcement can be posted from any cell or pc device. Maybe they want to announce as well as upload footage of the changes as a demonstration of whatever big changes their making to wvw and do not want to do the announcements without those uploads? Or they were adding mounts and read all the don’t add mounts feedback and panicked lol

    Words.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and I pretty much agree with your take on it.

    ~ Kovu

    Ranger main before it was viable.
    Fort Aspenwood.

  • Clearly this announcement is about the new objective based World vs world map!

    The map will feature 3 areas - one for each team.

    At zone in, there will be a small safe zone that will feature some vendors, as well as a new Merchant. This merchant will allow you to donate gold towards your world's resources!
    For every 1 gold you donate, your world gains 1 supply!

    Past the safe area you come into your home camp. The camp contains several guards and a flag with your world's color.
    This flag can be captured and taken by an enemy force, but you can also capture the enemy's flag as well!
    For every flag capture, any world vs world players with the minimum rank 3 participation will earn a pip!
    (Note that capturing or defending the flag does not earn participation.)

    While this seems simplistic, in reality there is another compelling aspect to the game.
    You see, in order to protect your flag, the leaders of your world have decided to build a big wall!

    Once players have donated a collective 100 gold to the merchant, a Pack dolyak carrying 100 supply will spawn at base and head toward the wall build spot. Players will have to protect the dolyak from the enemy players that will try to destroy the dolyak and it's supplies. Players that successfully escort the dolyak will earn participation. Enemy players that kill the dolyak will earn participation as well!
    (Note: the dolyak will have high health, but isn't effected by player buffs, and will not regenerate health.)

    The wall requires 5 billion supply to build, but once you have it built, you win!
    The first world to have their wall built will rank 1st in the world vs world match up and will move up to the next tier!

    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.

    Don't expect them to think logically when they are in pitchfork mode.

    I for one am looking forward to the drops in population when mounts come and all these folks leave like they say they will.

    Wait... didn't everyone say that about gliding too?

    so instead of focusing on the core root cause of the problem in the game-balance which affect the larger drops in population in the game, Anet instead chooses to focus on wvw structuring--fixing the symptoms instead ??

    Seriously, what madness is this? and some of you siding with it?

    For as many people that claim imbalance in WvW currently, I am a little confused as maybe those people should be utilizing these builds, ya know, make it meta like it is already. If they touch any balance it should be to unnerf Winds of Disenchantment/Lava Font/Chono Stuff.

    It's still next week (supposidly), but, even if "next week" comes and it gets pushed back again, it's still next week.

    "Next week" should replace "soon" I think, we're in a new year afterall, we should update our lingo.

  • DemonSeed.3528DemonSeed.3528 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I feel like that could be right Safandula, basically an announcement for something way out on the horizon, but an addition to look forward to [possibly] in wvw, so maybe not something that will be implemented soon/right away'ish.

  • can be they dont really say something because they know that they get soon competition in the market for wvw game mode and want to stay cloudy now. all the years they had no competition which means that they had not to update anything what does not actually mean that they did not develope anything in the background. they might be ready and wait atm for the competitor to release his game first cause when all the old top guilds come back inside the new game alot of us who are still here will also move cause we want to see our old fellows and enemies again. so anet must have something in the back to pull otherwise wvw in gw2 is soon really over.

    And there is only one thing we say to Death: 'not today'.

    Expectations vs. Reality Check

    I chose the latter- Reality Check--Act without expectations

    The rage continues.....

    Skirmish Tickets are now usefull.

    The Dream

    Im in dire need of them to get my first ascended weapons/armor.

    D O N T!!!!!!!!

    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.

    But wvw gives stat selectable ascended and i have 2k skirmish tickets and 500memories of battle. I just need those damned marks. Its so hard to get them without crafting at 500lvl. I dont like crafting. Is there no other way?

    You want marks? Go play PvP... no joke. If you just play 1 game of ranked PvP per day, you'll have probably a little more than half the marks you need in the time it takes you to farm the skirmish tickets. If you play a couple PvP games per day, you'll have everything you need between PvP and the handful you get per week in the 1/10th of PvP equivalent currency.

    You don't even have to win the PvP game as the PvP chest PIP track progresses you automatically...that's why I hear there are so many bots on low end silver ranked PvP.

  • They wanted to do a proper announcement and not get it wrecked by weather (whatever that means) because of the work that has already been done... so it must be something.

    I'm looking forward to the announcement as long as it isn't mounts. To me, that would just seem like an excuse to try to get more gem sales. It doesn't fix anything with WvW.

    Same here!
    But! Think logically. It will not be mounts because it would ruin the WvW totally. And everyone has great movement seed. So grab a full zergy class with 0 mobility. Burst and run/ ride away!

    Cannot summon mounts in combat. Probably won't be able to summon mount in enemy territory. Mounts have low HP (outside of upgrades) and getting knocked off one is a quick way to get a long knockdown.

    Crisis averted.

  • Ladies and gentlemen, announcement is tomorrow. Let's all pray Anet don't ruin it!

  • fuzzyp.6295fuzzyp.6295 Member ✭✭✭

    Really hoping its not mounts. Already impossible to catch or escape from a thief and mirage, even better if they can just mount up the second they're OoC. But please anet. I trust you guys more than I think I should, but from all evidence I've seen over the many years playing exclusively WvW, (and i dont mean this in a mean spirited way) you guys really lack the in-depth understanding of what makes WvW exciting to the player base as opposed to what looks good for development.

    I honestly don't even know what to expect tomorrow expect mounts. I just really don't see the point, the WvW maps so so small, its completely unnecessary. Gliding already makes traveling super easy.

    The only other thing I could hope and pray for is an official skill split announcement and how skills will now be balanced with a focus on WvW. Maybe thats why we didn't have a balance patch this last major update? :( Or, you know, the death of WvW and the restructuring into Alliance Battles! Yay Kurzicks and Luxons! That would actually get me excited. A new map would be interesting as long as Arena-Net actually listens to the beta testers and makes adjustments unlike the DBL.

    fingers crossed no mounts pls...

    Well just because it's wvw related it doesn't have to mean it's exclusively for wvw right?

    So it could also be "only" upgrade to direct x12. To get more DPS in-game. No?
