The one problem I've had is the overflow servers splitting me and a friend up, even though we're grouped. We found a fix for the problem but it's a shame it's there at all.

For those that are seeing this problem try this: use TS or Mumble or some such, when you get split up log back to char select, when both there, do a 3, 2, 1, GO (click PLAY) and 4 times out of 5 you get put in the same overflow. Problem solved.

Have to ask, what have you filled the bank with? I have some good items I've been saving, stuff I got from chests, few keys, crafting stuff and exp boosts and still plenty of space left.

A few of these boosts, but the rest is mostly gathering resources that I currently don't need.

Go to ANY crafting location (workbenches, smithing benches etc, ANY).

Interact with it, and use the "collection" tab.

 

Throw all your mats in there. Then you have enough bag and bank space.

Learning is fun. :)

What bothers me most is being in party with a friend and only being able to see each other on the map when we're near each other. 

 

To a lesser extent: the Friends, Guild UIs often not showing info properly. Buggy/laggy chat. Combat with more than a few people is still a clusterfuck.

 

Hopefully the kinks will be ironed out quickly as me and a friend are enjoying ourselves immensely solving puzzles.

Ahh excessive zoning and sharding, always kills it for me. That on it's own is often enough for me to step away and not try it, think it's why i didn't even touch the first.

The excessive zoning is only for going into your personal story instances. Aside from those and the dungeons, the only time you zone is going to new maps and it only takes a few seconds.

If youre constantly popping in and out of your own instances, thats the only reason youre going to have excessive zoning and going into overflow repeatedly. If you stay on the map, you stay in the main server for good. You just lose your spot to make room for people actually on the map.

Personally though id have preferred them to not do a main and overflow, with the force overflowing and issues with joining friends, etc. Seems better to me if theyd have simply done a channel 1 and channel 2, and let you pick which one youre in as needed to meet up with friends and stuff.

Way more work than is needed. Just open your inventory, click the gear in top right and click the option to deposit all collectables. It sends them right to the bank for you from anywhere in the world.

Also its a good idea to constantly keep a salvaging kit or 2 on you when you venture out. lets you salvage the trophies and junk loot you dont want to keep/sell and then just deposit the mats as i said above and your bags will never get full.

Too much zoning/instancing, no sandbox features outside of PvP, cash shop instead of subscription.

I can't quite put my finger on it just yet, but it does bother me.

 

I think I was expecting it to be more like Guild Wars.

Besides the fact that it doesn't have one of the NPCs mail my boss a convincing letter explaining why it's vitally important that I stay home and play it instead of coming to work, currently nothing major. 

The only big gripe I had was vanished today once I discovered that the small bank space wasn't a sneaky plan to make you spend money because they had kindly included a HUGE depositable bank for crafting materials.

Other than that, small gripes include:

1. Occasional crashing once there's a lot of action going on (entirely to be expected in the first few days of release and the age of my PC)

2. Longievity issues if I keep overplaying it (again this would be my own fault)

That said it is only the day 5 so I'm sure, being the hard to please human scum that we are, surely other things will present themselves in time. 

EDIT: oh, I forgot one thing. I said this a while ago on this forum and someone thought I was 'trolling' but I largely can't stand the voice acting. I thought this was pretty bad when I played Charr in beta and the utterly bland voices didn't come close to matching the big nasty ferocity of these characetrs but it's even WORSE on the Asura where the voices are just plain irritating and the dialogue is straight out of some 'quirky' US daytime comedy that uses phrases like 'Hellloooo?! Whatever' or 'like totally and stuff'. Thankfully I enjoy the gameplay too much for this to be a problem.

Agree on hearts, luckily there should be less and less more you advance in the game. I usually skip them completely.

But dynamic events, sigh. :) I just wrote a blog post why dynamic events are awesome, I recommend you check it out!

Yeah I did say some of the dynamic events hehe :)

 

I have played through a few that are actually quite fun, but then again I am not sure if i would want to keep donig them over and over. One area i was in crafting yesterday had this dynamic event where these aminal experiments escaped or somthing, so you needed to kill them and when they died they would turn into a slime thing. Anyway myself  I collected well over 20 slime things and i guess other people did a similar thing. OK was fun i guess so i went back to crafting 10 mins later pop exactly the same so called dynamic even popped up.. so i thought what the hell and did it again.. and went back to crafting.. guess what happened yup same event  again.. this time i ignored it.. I have come accross a few like this but then i have come accross some that are have multiple levels to them and are quite fun, also some of the bigger world events are pretty good as well but they are more like raids.. I am hopnig in the higher lvl areas the Dynamic events get better and effect the world a lot more like they where suppose to...

I am not calling them a pile of crap like the heart quests lol but they certainly dont come accross as being any better then the events in WAR or Rifts.

Movement and evade speed.

They are just way to slow its ok as a Asura but a big Race is a pain.

I feel like i am moving in slow motion on my Chaar its very annoying and the side or backwards evading animation looks terrible since its too slow it makes me wonder if the Chaar actually defy gravity and manage to floot a bit in the air before they hit the ground and finish the roll its just that slow.

The slow movement is a prob in fights too they just feel slow and boring even tho they have the potential to be good.

The other thing is that i can not sell Gems by myself i find it shady to only be able to sell them over Anets system(you sell 100 for 26S and if someone buys 100 its 45S thats messed up) and can not put them up at the AH for my own prices.(its also funny they managed to get that in for launch but not the AH tho....)

I hope everyone enjoys the game just as much as I do. However, this game has some flaws. Probably its just because it just launched a few days ago. My gamebreaken (which is the first), and my problems atm are:

 

  • Playing without your friends - It bothers me alot. Me and my cousin cant play together at all. Even though we are on the very same server, we always get overflowed to our own places. No join possibility or anything. I love the overflow system instead of being able to login, but at least make it so you join the same overflow server ANet!
  • Crafting - I really like crafting. Its fun, and instead of just learning some recipes you have to discover them yourself. However I would have loved, if it required less mats. Vial fo Weak Blood and all those Fine crafting ingredients is a pain to find if you also want to level your character at the very same time.
  • WvW often down - At launch I could allmost instant join WvW. Yesterday I was queued for several hours and never got my invitation for it. I would really love to WvW. But I also wanted to actually join the fight instead of running alone trying to find everyone :P But I guess thats the charm about WvW.
As said above, whats gamebreaking about these 3 is the first topic. It feels boring and like you have rolled on different servers when you cant see each other at all. Hopefully it will get fixed anytime soon.

To play with your friends you have to be in the party and in the same zone, then right click his portrait and press "join in"...

that transfers you to his overflow, arenanet did think of that you just have to look for it ;)

 

crafting is actually something I do while leveling, whenever I see something gatherable in the world I get it. When I recieve items I don't need I salvage them, and so on.... So getting mats while leveling is easier way than just farming for mats... Also, whenever you get mats in your inventory you can just deposit them to the bank instantly from your inventory so it doesn't take up your space...

WvWvW isn't down, the fact that you can't join WvWvW doesn't mean that it's not working.... It has a limit of 500 people per server, per map... So unless enough people leaves for you to move up the queue and you do get invited, you won't enter WvWvW.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

8/29/12 4:00:10 AM#32

Combat: Damn you for being clunky! Its fun but boy... do I feel like I have a lack of control. I blame Tera and the 'arcade style' MMos out there. Sure the 'arcade/mission' style isn't the persistant world like GW2, but playing the game it does make me wish it was a game like that at times where I really felt in control of my character.

Personal Story: I love this, its amazing actually... but then my character opens his/her mouth. Ever hear of gorden freeman? Ever wonder why so many people love him and he is so icon? Perhaps even Link? Its because he didn't say anything to make people dislike him, and it allowed the player to fill in the blanks. It makes playing my character and watching how incredible cocky and self-concieted he/she is just that much more cringe worthy. Don't get me wrong, there are times were I do like this (Order of whispers pirate quest in particular is pretty hilarious hearing my thief slur her words while pulling of a daring rescue in particular) but it just takes out that gap where we can make up our own minds about what our character is like. Whether you pick charming or dignified or whatever, it does nothing at all to help reflect your characters dialog. 

 

Its less about the 'personal story' I guess and more about the fact your character speaks in it... and the personality of it is far from 'yay thats me' and more like 'oh god, I'd want to shoot myself'. 

 

 

There are more thing but those are the top 2 on my mind this second.

Read my post earlier about personal stories & zoning.

Why would no sandbox features in a themepark game bother you? It was never claimed to be a sandbox. Thats about equivalent to saying it bothers you that you need t have internet to play because you thought it was single player.

Yes theres a cash shop, but you dont need to spend cash. Gems can be bought for in game gold. Also the cash shop offers no real advantages, like equipment upgrades or thats ort of stuff you typically see in cash shops. Mostly cosmetic stuff, character slots, bag/bank space, and XP boost type stuff. BUT all of the boosters, the keys for unlocking chests, etc can also be found as drops or given as rewards for completing certain quests, daily tasks, monthly tasks, etc. Also regarding the keys, its a pretty common thing (nearly every time for some people), that you use 1 key, open the box and along with other cash shop items you also get another key. Just last night I got 1 key from a quest and ended up being able to open 6 boxes in a row due to them continuing to give me keys with the 1st 5. Dont knock the cash shop based on whats in other games, look into how it works for this game yourself.

I wish there were more benefits to grouping in the open world. Grouping makes no difference in DEs, which I don't mind because in DE's everyone is soft-grouped anyway. I was hoping our group of three could help each other out completing hearts. As it stands right now heart quests can't be accomplished faster by a group because the progress is tied to a player only.

Well thats not technically true about the hearts progress. yes if youre each off soloing 3 seperate mobs, youll progress the same as soloing them out of group. But if you stick together and group up the mobs so you can aoe them all together, or simply all 3 of you focus 1 mob together you all get full credit for each kill of every mob. Faster kills = faster hearts progress.

In cases where you interact with objects which spawn mobs, you can have 1 guy running to the objects and triggering them while the other 2 are constantly aggroing the mobs as they spawn and herd them up and then the objective runner can toss 1 AoE into the group and get credit as the other 2 are finishing them off quickly and continue running to more objectives.

Me and my friend tried everything. We were also in the same zones, and the "join" function wasnt there 50% of the time. And when it was, nothing happened when neither of us tried to click on this function. So it doesnt help - at least not most of the time

so far my biggest issue with this game is the fact that everything is a damn zerg fest. i try to do DEs they are zerged, i go to WvW and that is just one big zerg. the whole damn game is Zerg wars not guild wars.

The game just released, so not sure why everyone zerging the same earlier areas comes as a surprise. At least you can still progress with the zerg, unlike most games where youd be fighting the zerg for any sort of kills and loot. The zerg in PvE will die down as people advance more into other areas, and new players are coming and people reroll to try new toons.

The WvWvW zerg will work itself out too. Its the 1st week, there is no balancing between the servers yet. In time through weekly rotations youll be pitted against more equal pop servers, and people will also grow bored with the zerg and branch off into smaller organized groups to accomplish stuff.

 I hope your right about WvW because thats what i want to do more than anything, but man im tired of getting zerged down everytime me and some friends go off to do our own thing. and im not talking just being out numbered by a couple of people its like 20 vs 4 most of the time and that is not fun.

and standing in a zerg of 50 people mashing my aoe key over and over is even less fun.....

Camera controls, definitely. Mouse smoothnes is over the top and the FoV needs some adjustments. Fix this and I'm happy.
