LFG TAB

 

What if we have one more line to press on top of all areas names called "all" where we can see all (duh) current groups looking for players and these would be sorted by group size, group with more people on top, people would still have to go to each of the other places to create groups, this area would be just to consult and join.

A revamp of the LFG tool would be really nice, I would love to see a squish on all those tabs. Instead of several listing for each map, just have 1 tab for LW2 for example. How to know which map they are on though? Add the location of party leader to the right-side pane so now we can see location, party members/classes and text all in place without having to click through tons of empty tabs. If you were to add any other tabs I would highly recommend a "services" tab, I hate trying to set up for a raid group and just see the tab spammed with raid-sellers. Nothing against them but they should be in a more appropriate area; i.e. services. This could also be uused for other services that players provide, I would even add a "request service" tab for players.

Account-wide Waypoint unlocks.

 

     As it stands, despite having 7 alt characters, I only ever play my main because it would far too time consuming to go around unlocking all the waypoints around the entire world 7 times over again. For example, I would love to bring some of my alts to Guild Missions, but I'm not able to due to those characters not having all the waypoints necessary to keep up with them; and no, the currently available waypoint unlock bundles are not an acceptable alternative. They only give the waypoints for core maps, and are far too expensive given that they only work for one character at a time. Also, Teleport to Friends are a limited resource and a band-aid solution at best. Portal Scrolls are also just a patchjob solution, and they don't even have those for HoT and PoF maps. I want to be able to hop between my characters freely and use whichever one I feel like for any particular event on any map instead of just riding one character forever because they're the one that has all the unlocks. While this game does have a ton of great features making alt characters more convenient to use; I believe this waypoint issue is a roadblock in really letting people have fun with them.

Hello, I am going to complain quite a lot right now. Sorry in advance.

 

User experience is the biggest enemy/challenge in this game. I have never spent so much time on wiki and yt looking for answers as I do in GW2. Today I was trying to get one of the recipes for some gear  Whole day of figuring out WvW, farming, being completely overwhelmed and miserable as a new player there, only to learn that I can not spend my 100 (point of another currency), because first I need spend some ranks in some ability in some another progression system.

 

Why?

 

I am so frustrated you have no idea.

 

Ok. Let's try to put it a bit more coherent.

 

User experience needs an upgrade. It is so convoluted that even after a year of playing this game, hundreds of hours in, after finishing three biggest storylines and leveling few characters from 0 to 80 I have moments like this when I wanna quit and never come back. I have no idea what am I supposed to do to progress and have fun.

 

Why PvP and WvW (fun fact, WvW is also PvP, because everything needs to be more confusing) use completely new set of systems, rules, equipment or even skills?

 

Why there is no way to learn information you need on more natural way, only by wiki? Do you know that I've been complaining for weeks that I can not get any better gear just to discover that I am two or three achievements from possibly the best weapon in the game? Suddenly I've discovered that you have to spend hours in achievements tab to get what you need to keep up. Why there is no proper introduction of that shift in story or something?

 

Learning curve is insane here and it never ends. Do something with it. I wanna play, not read wiki for whole day.

Those of us who have played from the beginning will remember how the map used to look: orange circles around events everywhere. We knew where to run to join in.

 

Now we'll be running around, see a message new event nearby, look at map, nothing. Just have to criss cross the area, hoping to stumble across it before it ends; some but few events are visible at any significant range. The old style of many visible circles was much more fun. Please bring it back.

When opening production tab at a crafting station, we get a looooong list of options. If for example we're interested in refinement, there's a lot of scrolling to get there, or filter tool is useful.

 

But also very useful would be a button that toggles between "expand all" and "collapse all". That would, for example, let me collapse all, hit a specific category of weapon type or refinement etc, expand that category, and be where I want to be. That would be quick and pleasant.

Can there be a real CC skill indicator? Like, you put a defiance bar symbol above the skill slot as example or add bold cyan outline around the skill slots too. Really. This is qol and it is a pain to remember which skill do cc or not.

[Suggestion] A "Nearby" list that you can check everyone in the instance that you're in. So for example. I am in LA and there are multiple phases/instances of it. If I check the nearby list I can see all of the people in LA in my instance.

 

[Reason] Well it would be nice to check to see if you're talking to nobody when you're in a map that is not usually frequented. Could use it to whisper people in the same map to see if they want to do something with you like a bounty as one example.
