What are we doing here? Are we saying they're not capable making another weapon for this game? Jfc 🤣 as a software engineer that worked on a number of varying complexity systems, I am trying to tell you, that just because they made a game, does not mean that the code base is flexible or expandable enough to allow expansion you would like to see. Just within my field of experience I have met numerous situations where something felt it "should be easy" to person whom did not work on the code of that particular system, only for that person to get boggled down for months trying to do the "easy enough" task. I've even been there myself more than once. 4 minutes ago, Fenris.8563 said: You're exaggerating what I'm saying here. Kinda like how he did. Yes it's a lot of work. No it's not easy. They can't just snap their fingers. But this is what they do and they've literally already done it with other weapons. I am not exagerrating anything. What they have done, was design and implement system that consisted of specific amount of weapon types within that system. Afterwards the only expansion to that system they did, was to allow more classes to use already existing weapon types. At no point have they actually added a whole new type, which is what you were asking for and claiming it should be well within their capabilities. And I have designed and implemented my fair share of systems so far, that I would not be able to feasibly expand, primarily because when those systems were designed, the requirements did not call for that to be an option. In those cases if I wanted to perform such expansion it would mean redevelopping whole system from the scratch. At which point it is not expansion of the system, it's creationg of whole new one. 9 minutes ago, Fenris.8563 said: I know enough to know this is true. You know enough to have illusion of knowing enough to think it is true. Don't worry I have been there myself when I was working on my degrees. I know the feeling. But the reality they will not teach you at universities is much more complex, and soon enough you will learn that. 11 minutes ago, Fenris.8563 said: You don't have to white knight this dude because you're afraid of GW2 adding weapons. Ah, and here we go, acusation of white knighting just because someone more experienced in the field have dared to disagree with your claim that the task should be "easy enough", with a strawman that anyone in this thread is "afraid" of GW2 having wider variety of weapons. FYI nobody in here is afraid of having more potential diversity in weapon choices. 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
