  1. I've been having this issue for FIVE MONTHS. I've sent multiple tickets and all they ever do is ask me to send DxDiag and run Hi-jackThis. Things I've tried: Uninstalling and reinstalling -repair Clearing cache Adjusting Firewall settings Disabling Firewall Disabling anitvirus programs Using VPN (WTFast) Running on different computer Updating drivers Contacting ISP - ISP reset and updated Modem REPLACING ENTIRE MODEM None of these things have worked. What I'm experiencing: Soft disconnect to character select and hard disconnect to launcher. Happens every hour/
  2. ^ This Druid needs some buffs and a big rework. Right now in WvW/PvP the only thing that keeps it afloat is Ancient Seeds. It can be relatively easy to deal with with the right build, so it's not that the trait has no counterplay, it just rewards being spammy. Granted, this isn't an issue unique to Druid, but it is certainly one of the most significant in terms of how easily it can turn a fight just by mashing CC's.
  3. Hint: If they're all on the same server, they're not fight guilds.

  5. Because one shot builds are lower effort than most Condi builds.
  6. Though I don't personally care for rewards, I've obviously nothing against it being a part of WvW. Something that has always made me think though is how ANet seems to be so cautious about adding valuable and easy to obtain loot/gear. Reward tracks give a moderate amount, but very little compared to a single meta train in PvE. And I think about it like, are they concerned that it is/could be "too easy/low effort" to get high rewards? Or is it that they think WvW players want a carrot to chase? If the former, then why can you get so much more so much faster in various areas of PvE, often time
  7. Love this. Core Engi so underrated. Core Power is my favorite thing to play in WvW, though of course it has a lot of uphill fights and hard counters, it's a very rewarding and skillful build. I play something similar, but also very different. "Power Cannon" I'd say this version is a little safer with very similar damage to the Grenade core build, but lower sustained damage because you don't have the virtue of Grenade autos. A few screen caps Pry Bar + EE BIG Pry Bar Throw Wrench double hit Thwack- Tool Kit auto
  8. This ^, thank you. From frequent experience in dueling, roaming and zerging on core zerk Rifle Engi, all I need is Sigil of Cleansing and Elixir Gun to fight the majority of Condition builds. That's x3 on swap, x1 with Super Elixir, x1 with Blast Finisher, and Light Aura for Condition Damage reduction if needed, and that's it. Yes, if the fight drags on too long I'm likely to die, but that's kind of the whole thing about Condition builds - they're attrition. And yet many of them can't even attrition, because Power damage is so high that fights can often end before you run out of cleanses.
  9. Probably not playing the right build then, because I disagree with that conclusion entirely. But I've also seen your gameplay and understand why you might feel that way.
  10. The problem isn't that Soulbeast does a lot of damage, because a damage dealer is the identity of Soulbeast. Each Elite spec offers a different role, we could compare this to Warrior and Berserker as an example. Berserker gives up defenses to deal higher damage- a damage dealer is the identity of that Elite spec. The issue with Soulbeast is that it is both a damage dealer and a bruiser. The defenses are what need to be nerfed. Smoke Assault should not have a range of 750 with 0 cast time. Dolyak Stance should not grant immunity to all CC (hard and soft) on top of flat damage reduction
  11. Heh, glad you liked some of my ideas! Sorry that S/P wasn't as fun for you as it is myself, I totally understand. I think S/P feels really natural with PForge personally, but of course I do totally agree about the lack of range. The build is by no means "good", but I think it feels good to play. I love build crafting and just talking about builds, so if you ever have ideas or want help I'd be happy to talk in game. Otherwise, enjoy yourself the Cele buffs :D.
  12. If you're looking for help, sure. Otherwise, I'm not interested in criticism because I already know they work and understand where they fault. As I'd said, I do absolutely think core Engi needs some love, I just don't think it's as weak as it's often claimed to be. The variety of available stats in WvW make it a lot more viable with the right combination, where as in PvP it might be more of a struggle.
  13. "Energy Injection" ^ I like to name my builds, lol. That's what I'm using. I understand what you mean about, that was what I thought at first as well. Flamethrower does a good job at compensating for the Power damage though. The way I play it is camping FT against things I can afford to trade with, and poking more damaging builds with Pistol skills forcing some cleanses/defenses, then going aggressive with FT. Because you can't afford to take Firearms with Holo if you want a lower recharge on your Shield and higher cleanse, you're basically replacing Flamethrower with Photon For
