  1. Right ... and as long as the way you view it isn't related to how Anet actually does it, then you aren't going to have a meaningful approach to discussing changes. Nothing wrong with suggesting for things but your idea that ele gets some boons just because other classes got some boons too is absurd. On one hand you complain power creep is bad because of how it's removed ele from being a good class ... then you turn around and think it should get a big ole power creeped buff to bring it back. The fact is that you will say anything to get a ele buff, even if it doesn't make sense or
  2. ... and this isn't about an opinion about what is right or good because opinions aren't how Anet measures and decides to change the game. Clearly they have some process on how they assess the game; there is evidence of that in the patch notes. Player opinion is not what is the value here if Anet can directly measure players 'opinion' by measuring stats from the game. Sure, you might not like the changes, but again, if you want to be influential in your dissatisfaction of those changes, you better stop assuming how you think is the 'right' way it should be done and ask yourself why
  3. You just admitted yourself about 3-4 posts ago that's EXACTLY what they could do. Have you already forgot your own words? Something about not being limited by rules or physics, etc ...? I don't really get your position here. Somehow you DON'T think Anet is the design control authority of the game? This is what's happening here ... somehow you convinced yourself you get to 'vote' on change. You don't. No one does. This all comes back to the fact that if you want to be influential to change, you better stop assuming how you think is the 'right' way it should be done and ask yourself
  4. because Anet decided it was appropriate based on the theme or whatever definition those classes have. I mean ... go read the patch notes. Anet explains why they make these changes to us. You don't need to take my word for it. Are you going to tell Anet what their meaning is too like you do for me just to create an argument based on your misunderstanding?
  5. Listen ... I JUST told you what my POV was so don't play dishonest games with me where you (who continues to demonstrate a lack of understanding) is telling me what my meaning is. If there is anyone who is most capable of telling someone what I mean ... it's ME. And just so there is some clarity here, I will simply repeat my POV for you so there should be no 'challenge' of what my meaning is to you to perpetuate some nonsensical argument My POV is that if you want to promote a change, it needs to be aligned to how Anet designs the game. Asking for alacrity and quickness on ele, ju
  6. No, it's not. My POV is that if you want to promote a change, it needs to be aligned to how Anet designs the game. Asking for alacrity and quickness on ele, just because other classes have them is not aligned to how Anet design the game. It's in fact, an absurd reason to justify a change. Also, my POV is that if you disagree with a change Anet makes, it's not because they are 'wrong' and that you got the 'right' answer. The correct thing to do is to start understand why the game is designed the way it is and how the changes relate to that ... something you continue to fail to do.
  7. The game is updated all the time based on how Anet wants things to change. So that question is obviously nonsensical. Besides, that doesn't seem to have anything to do with how bad your idea is that ele gets boons just because other classes got some too.
  8. Hold on ... I've been accessing guide for games since as far back as I can remember, even before the internet existed ... and those were some of the best games out at the time. A guide isn't a sign of poor game design at all. It DOES indicate a level of complexity in the game that might make some tasks not obvious to many people. Comparing books/movies to games is not a reasonable comparison. Games require a player to understand rules, user interface, etc ... reading books and watching movies are much different (and likely simpler) cognitive tasks than playing a game
  9. Actually, I like the idea ... Sure, give Warclaw a PVE mastery line ... but make it only unlock doing WvW content. 😉
  10. What about it? Your idea that ele gets some boons because other classes got some boons is absurd. Those aren't related in any way. That's just a serving of envy with a pinch of axe to grind for taste. Again ... your idea of how the game should work doesn't seem to align with Anet's and the relevant design authority here isn't you. "Its a game that you can charge the rules any way you want." No, it's not. It's a game where ANET can change the rules anyway THEY want. The fact is that they do change the rules ... how THEY want.
  11. Except that appeal doesn't make sense because of how the game is designed in the first place. You go ahead and point it out but the irony here is in your own words. Anet could change the game to be what you think it should be ... but they don't ... so that should tell you something about how misaligned your ideas of how the game should work really are. The biggest problem is that you think the way the game is being balanced is wrong just because it's not balanced how you think it should be. That's just wrong. Anet is the design control authority here, not you or any other players.
  12. OK ... that doesn't change what I said. The fact is that it doesn't matter if you like it or not. If you don't like it, then this isn't the game for you to choose to play because it can't cater to how you want it to work. If the last 8 years has been hell because the game doesn't work how you think it should ... that should be a MASSIVE hint to you to not play it. It simply is not balanced according to meta level performance and it doesn't need to be because their is a massive range of performance allowed to be successful. I mean, there is also some hypocrisy there with what you s
  13. Listen ... I don't know if you are hard of understanding, maybe English isn't your first language or what your deal is here. No you DON'T get to choose what skills/effects/things your class has ... and you know asking me how to 'choose' to get alacrity and quickness on ele is absurd to begin with. That DOESN'T change the fact that there isn't a 'replacement' of classes for meta ones in a team like you claim ... unless you choose to play that way. I'm defending how Anet designs and balances the game because in the last 8 years of playing this game, I have YET to be forced to play so
  14. You don't ... it's not a choice available to you ... but there are OTHER choices you have to make as a player that do influence how a team is built. There isn't a 'replacement' of classes for meta ones in a team like you claim ... unless you choose to play that way. Just because you make that choice doesn't mean Anet needs to accommodate your idea of how the game should work. Just make a different choice.
  15. No, you choose how you play. How you think the game is balanced or not is irrelevant. It's designed to NOT be balanced according to how you think it should be.
