LtBeard.4539 Posted September 18, 2022 Share Posted September 18, 2022 I read the changes to gyros and simply don't want to play anymore. I got the game when it came out 10 years ago. I had my fun for a bit but after my friends left I stopped playing as well. Cut to a few months ago, I randomly think about GW2 again, I look up what's new, I get hyped and I come back. I buy all the expansions, the living world content, I boost a necro, make it a reaper, and I start my personal story. I get a bit into it, but realize it's not quite for me. I check out the other professions, see Scrapper for Engineer, and I love it. It's not the best, but the hammer is cool, I love the moveset, love the gyros, love the quickness mobility power theme. I go through the story, the map completion, everything. I happen to come back when it's the 10 year anniversary and I enjoy the benefits of that as well. I join a guild, make some acquaintances. I start considering buying stuff on the gem store, too. I'm ready to fully get into the game. Cut to now, and I see the gyro changes. All my drive to play is gone. I just simply don't want to play anymore. I know that shortly, Scrapper gameplay will be garbage. I won't enjoy it. Even if the numbers were off the charts and standing in a stationary gyro made you an invincible all-powerful one-shotting god, I would hate the feeling of it. "Here, have a profession centered around quickness and mobility, and also here's a feature that makes you stand in one spot or it's useless. It's also something every other profession has! It's not unique in any way, whatsoever!" There's no point in continuing, I know I'm going to dislike playing Scrapper once these changes are applied, and I don't want to go through the map completion and story yet again after doing it on Reaper then Scrapper and then whatever third profession I start, if I even like any of them as much as current Scrapper in the first place. The logic behind this change just doesn't make sense. In any way. It's just bad and lazy. They could have changed any number of things. Number of targets affected, number of pulses, AoE size, duration of the gyro, duration of the boon, strength of the boon, cooldown, etc. Instead, we get this. Garbage. I know the profession is called Scrapper but that doesn't mean our mechanics have to be the scraps left over from everyone else too. 11 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
