It's not the biggest deal but I see more and more people auto-running / macro afk sitting in WvW these days to maintain their reward pips.. Ya'll know you can do this in the obsidian sanctum and armistice bastion right?

 

It's not big deal during normal hours but primetime you see your BLs capped out but your outnumbered in field fights it raises a few question marks... Especially when you see goons off in the corners of the map nobody goes; slamming themselves into clusters by corners and impassible areas.

 

Lol.

They do it to stay on a map if it's queued or going to be queued later on when they come back.... not for the pips, as participation runs out anyways... But yes it's annoying, they should get kicked for afking in one spot for too long.

You gain nothing from being afk after a few minutes. Never done that so I have no clue, but I think after 15m of not gaining participation you wouldn't receive anything, so it is pointless to stay afk for hours to get pips.

 

So I assume they are people reserving a spot in the map for later, as you say your server has some queue issues.

Or maybe saboteurs reducing your active population, which happens on my server.

Tbh I find the 20+ "fight guild" members standing afk in spawn for an hour waiting until their commander decide to start the raid while we are fighting 3v15 on our spawntower far more useless.

6. ...and the best item is here: GIFT OF BATTLE. it can only be acquired through wvw and 2/3 of the realms have no life in mists or the local borderlands other than ebg. btw, gift of battle is a mandatory item for legendary weapons, which often becomes the main purpose of any newbie gw2 player after hearing these can be crafted.

 

A friend a few years ago got her first couple purely escorting dollies at wierd play hours for her server (before links, not that links force longer platime).

 

Was fun for me when I learned about it, not for her.

[i prefer to remain anonymous (not to the devs but to players); therefore that is a reply through my 'smurf' account]

 

no. but why do i say no? let me explain extensively since gw2 forums do not have many replies in comparison to reddit. and even that could be an indicator to support my thoughts below.

 

wvw of gw2 could've been the best mode in the online gaming history; yet, the people who prefer to call themselves as 'devs' preferred to destroy it. i humbly believe the shareholders and the white-collared employees of arenanet have no idea about what this game is about. otherwise they would've replaced these 'devs' instantly. here are my thoughts on the incapability of the developers of this game on the wvw matter, briefly:

 

1. pruning the core characteristics of sub/classes under the name of 'balance patches'

2. altering the impact of skills between the game modes

3. merging lowbie servers with another to 'balance' the sides in wvw against sole/compact servers

4. focusing on guardian too much (now that needs an extra explanation since people can easily get offended: guardians used to use staves and they were called 'loot-sticks'. any guardian in any party/squad with communal defence talent was welcomed. the 'devs' had seen that situation as an issue and nerfed staves and that skill in time but introduced firebrands. it was a rookie move, and since then, no class is welcomed in high-end wvw. yes, say, holo was awesome for some time or spellbreaker or even scourge; yet, they got nerfed in time and there is no room for anyone else than FBs in teamplay in wvw. of course, sick'em sb or roamers like thieves are still on top in solo play -whether completely solo or 'kill-stealers' within the team- but still any commander would prefer a FB rather than, say, a condi mirage. besides, condi mirage has no place in wvw in this system).

PS: i know you/someone you know rocks with that particular 'unpopular' class but not many players are as pro as you or have as much time as you to become pro. they all pay the same amount of you and they want to participate in these kinds of events.

5. forcing players to use 3rd-party voice programs (and almost all commanders force it which is wrong)

6. ...and the best item is here: GIFT OF BATTLE. it can only be acquired through wvw and 2/3 of the realms have no life in mists or the local borderlands other than ebg. btw, gift of battle is a mandatory item for legendary weapons, which often becomes the main purpose of any newbie gw2 player after hearing these can be crafted.

 

in addition to that, your prime time does not have to be same with another. for instance, gw2 europe stretches from portugal to kazakhstan and from siberia of russia to yemen, perhaps through all the middle east and all over the africa continent.

 

long story short, wvw needs some love and attention. however the developers are too busy with periodically introducing new and 'shiny' items to black lion market which would only atract some end-game players alongside the skritt. this game is also harboring to some newbies, casuals, oldies but super casuals, testers, and returning players. they also need legendary equipment, therefore gift of battle, and they also want to see wvw operational. when they see it is not, they face towards a wall after escorting 2-3 dolyaks and press auto-move. emphaty my dear; change your perspective.

 

better yet, change the devs; or at least the mentality.

 

much love.

 

 

What does any of this have to do with people macro'ing to stay in the game while they are afk?

Most of these "fight club guilds" are useless anyway. Running with hidden tag, not contributing to anything on the server but their 2 raid days where they blob with another useless guild and complain all the time about everything.

Seriously, have you never had to go take a kitten while playing WvW?

"You will be forcibly kicked to the character selection screen if your character is idle for 15 minutes."

You may want to consider eating more fiber. Long kittens are can be bad for you.

Well just be sure to not follow them around clinging to their coattails once they start winning fights.
