If you really think Anet pulled a AoC you haven't played AoC, you just trolling and flamebaiting.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

Didn't you JUST post yesterday complaining about this? Eeesh, cry for attention much? We get it, you're not happy with the changes. Move on to another game if you don't like it.

if you say so you wanted your end game you got it and you all still complaining no wonder anet doesnt take anyone seriously. I dont blame them if you dont adapt to a game you will be left behind. Doesnt matter if you like it or not. If you dont like the new update then dont play it.

You should have expected the possibility before buying the game. It is your fault that you still took the risk and got burnt.

I think there's probably a line in the EULA warning for tthe fact that Anet can change the game at some time.

Did he ask for a refund?

I thought he was just saying the game was not fun for him anyore due to inclusion of things that kill his fun in a game like this (read gear grind with the potential to be never ending).

A few people have said since launch that the game needed gear grind and endgame activities similar to other games.

I and others have said "Well this game isn't for you, go play any of the dozens of games following that model".

Now Anet is saying "Actually you guys that dislike gear grind can go look for another game".

Of course they don't want those players to leave, they are banking on them staying since they are the old fan base from GW1.

And you only need to read these forums to see some will say "Green is the best color ever" if Anet says it and bash everyone that says "actually red is the best color" but next day if Anet says "Red is the best color ever" they will start saying the same as if they always did.

Fanboys are always please, Haters are always unhappy.

Then there are people that think for their heads and are pleased or displeased acording with the circumstances.

He is whining about it and blaming Arenanet when a major part of the fault lies in him rather than on Arenanet. Of course, if he asked for a refund too, then it would be even worse from my viewpoint.

Holy crap kiddos its a backpiece that you can get... full armor pieces aren't slated for release yet, they are still working on that. Where else can you even get a backpiece? I don't even play this game anymore and all this whining is driving me crazy.

 

You cry for more content, you got it. They're a business, and trying to get more business, that's the way the world works, get over yourselves.

I think its ok as long you can decide for yourself how to obtain the new gear.

Karma
Badges
Dungeon drops

no problem for me, if iam forced to play dungeon crawler WoW 2.0 /uninstall.
But Anet already said it can be obtained trough more then 1 way, so i gues we shoulnt be to worried.

But you never know untill proven :)

Yes, he is complaining about a change.

You can come and say that the change isn't a big deal. He can then say it is a big deal for him.

Anet then decides on player feedback or lack of it what to do.

And it would be the end of it.

Then there are people saying "no, actually nothing has changed. It is the same as always." and they go posting false piece of information after false piece of information to try to prove there was no change.

This is a fundamental change to what existed and was talked for years. It isn't a skill change, it isn't a tweak.

You can like it, dislike it, be indiferent.

No denying of reality though.

Get over yourself. They announced this stuff in the manifesto. They just didn't have it ready.

 

Have you made enough threads on this topic? Mods - please close this one as it is just another troll thread.

Facts do not require fiction for balance.

They're filling a "time to acquire" void, that's all. Exotics you can get quickly and easily with minimal effort. Legendaries were taking way too long for most people to even have a realistic shot of getting. So between them is one more layer, Ascended. They'll be harder to get than Exotics, yet no where as time consuming as Legendaries. They explained this perfectly when talking about the "Legendary Wall". People would quickly get all exotics, then the enxt step to Legendary weapons was so daunting that many simply wouldn't go there. Now you have a more realistic time sink for minor gear improvements with Ascended, and you also have a whole later option for lateral gear progression in the Ascended tier by introducing new dungeons (with new skins and infusions) that will give those that wish it a new time sink.

 

It's really not that complicated, nor is it a nefarious plot to go stealth WoW on us.

If you wanna leave, then go on, no one will stop you. I'll just play the game and have fun while laughing at the people who quit for such a stupid reasons. I will also laugh at the noobs who thinks their ascended gear will make them SO MUCH POWERFULL and pwn them with a smile on my face.



 
This is a dangerous stance to take. I really don't get some of you around here. Why do you love and defend these companies like they're your family? Do they really care that much for you? Or are they trying to make money and sell a product? I mean shit, I play these games and have fun while doing so, but I treat these companies like the whores they are. They want my money, I want some fun. Get it? As long as its worth it, I'll pay. But that's as far as the relationship will go. Some of you want to open mouth kiss and have a relationship with a hooker lol (hooker =game company).

For haters It's to complex to fathom, don't bother to try to explain it for them they won't understand it anyway.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

That is a lie.

There are exotic sets that are as almost as hard to get as legendaries.

Not only that, some of the exotic items sell for ridiculous high prices - do you think a few dozen dungeon runs to acquire an exotic or exotics requiring 50g+  isn't grinding and it is casual?

That is one.

Second is the fact Anet changed their policy that max stat items should be easy to acquire and grinds of hundreds and thousand of hours should be only reserved for aesthetic rewards and not impact gameplay so it remains optional and not mandatory.

Third there will be a gap between ascendend and legendaries.
