WvW gear should be the best to use in a WvW setting, not the other way around.
Dungeon gear should be best in a PvE setting, this balance is changing, even if it is a slight increase in stats.
PvP is a numbers game, iam willing to bet alot that all pvp's theorycraft on what is best to use to own face.

Again i have no problems pve players get their progresion so many wanted, but you cannot let WvW players run and farm dungeons to stay on equal foot.

I don't know since when 8% increase in stats is just a 'minor'. Even when Anet stated it is just the beginning and more stat increase is coming in next 3 months or so. I don't expect them to give 20% or more boost right out of the bat. They are trying to ease people into new design slowly.

One has to be really naive not to see that vertical progression is the new direction and not going anywhere now.

I do have some fundamental issues with the 'end-game' in GW2 - but find all this wailing and gnashing of teeth on both sides of this particular arguement to be ridiculous.

'Grinding' does NOT mean ANY effort required to get gear.

A 'Gear-Treadmill' is NOT the same as a 4% boost in stats for items you don't even know are hard to get!?

Feelings of 'betrayal' and threats to 'leave the game', or calling ANet 'liars' et al are the hyperbole of those screaming "me, me!" to attract attention.

Otherwise why post it here?

The almost insignificant gear progression they are introducing tries to tread the fine line between those endlessly moaning about there no progression and those being precious and vastly over-sensitive about grinding.

YOU lot make a noise and rattle your sabres at each other and ANet try to accomodate you. The noise then just escalates - "it's not enough!"..... "it's too much!"....

Quit complaining about it online and just cancel your accounts instead of trying to convince those of us with at least an ounce of logic that the sky is going to fall down.

That would at least be putting your money where your online mouths are!

I for one will not be playing long term for other reasons - reasons far more logical it seems to me than this particular tempest in a teacup.

As far as I am concerned, ANet is just being a responsive company and switching to meet the markets demands. Some people like not having to grind, but I think what is proposed is a happy medium in that you can get well equipped pretty easily, but you still have progression.

It seems the majority of the players want progression, judging by the constant 'Wah theres nothing to do at 80' threads on here. ANet move to fix it and they get whinging from the other end of the spectrum. They really cant win.

I am actually happy for gear progression but i wouldn't go as far as saying that gear progresion is insignificant. Right now it is 8% and it just for starters. Once rest of the gear peices are in we will know how insignificant it really is.

But you have to understand why these people are angry. They supported the idea and vision of Anet that exotics will be the cap for grind as far as stats are concerned and only thing that will differentiate them from one another is appearance. That is what made GW2 unique for them. An MMO which caps stats grind for good.

I think it is very immature of you to just label them as angry teems and shrug it off. I don't want same things as they  do but i understand their sentiment.

I see you are happy following the lazy trope of re-defining the meaning of what I said and criticising THAT imaginary point of view instead of what I ACTUALLY said.

Where do I use the term 'angry teens' or even hint at it? Adults quite long in the tooth are perfectly capable of regarding their opinions as the only ones that matter I assure you.

Additionally I DO understand people are angry - on both sides of this interminable arguement, and that 'anger' is a remarkable over-reaction to such a petty issue.

I also understand that the definition of what a 'grind' is, is at the core of the issue - and that 4% (not 8%) stat increase on gear which NO-ONE yet knows the difficulty of obtaining (i.e. will it really be a 'grind' to get - taking months of raid-style chance drops or endless matt farming, or will it be like nearly every other challenge as yet revealed in GW2? - ) is an insignificant step up.

I WvWvW it won't make one shred of difference.

In PvE the 'boost' will barely be noticeable.

The only real issue here is the 'Agony' stat and whether this means 'soft-gating' on content in the future.

Now enough of the misapplied 'immature' references - you would be better served pointing such comments at the endless complainers. There is no credible way for you to demonstrate that anything in my post history is 'immature' and I would ask that you refrain from now on.

It's a business and business is all about the money. Your ( the customer) money. A company will do anything to get your money so they will deceive you, lie to you, trick you etc in any way they can.

No surprise really.

So what? They noticed something did not work and are setting out on fixing/changing it. At least my guess is there doing it because the community wants it. They did not lie to the community as they implemented what they promised, but seem to be changing it because of popular demand (at least I guess?)

I do not think you should be to harsh to ANet. They tried to do things differently and some thing migt have been to different for a lot of poeple. As long as they trying to fix that and move forward I see nothing wrong and applaud to devs that have the guts to try something new instead of just sticking with the old and tried. That is shamefully what to many developers are doing.

I see you are happy following the lazy trope of re-defining the meaning of what I said and criticising THAT imaginary point of view instead of what I ACTUALLY said.

I did focus on what you 'ACTUALLY ' said. I still disagree that gear grind is insignificant. I also disagree the way you just want to shrug it off as just 'anger' and nothing more. What else did i miss? quit complaining? cancel your accounts and more patronizing?

And no it is not 4% i would say it is not even 8% but more. Some guy did the math and total came to 26% what is interesting is that 5 minutes later the thread got deleted. I tried to google it the link does come up but it only leads to that gigantic merged thread. 

Where do I use the term 'angry teens' or even hint at it? Adults quite long in the tooth are perfectly capable of regarding their opinions as the only ones that matter I assure you.

Additionally I DO understand people are angry - on both sides of this interminable arguement, and that 'anger' is a remarkable over-reaction to such a petty issue.

If it is 'petty' for you so everyoen should be on same page as you? if not you will continue to patronize them? 

I also understand that the definition of what a 'grind' is, is at the core of the issue - and that 4% (not 8%) stat increase on gear which NO-ONE yet knows the difficulty of obtaining (i.e. will it really be a 'grind' to get - taking months of raid-style chance drops or endless matt farming, or will it be like nearly every other challenge as yet revealed in GW2? - ) is an insignificant step up.

Once again, no one knows for sure how insignificant it is goign to be. You justs aid yourself  that no one knows the difficulty of obtaining it and how much the stats will end up in total once whole gear is introduced in next 3 months.

I WvWvW it won't make one shred of difference.

In PvE the 'boost' will barely be noticeable.

Still assuming. You keep contradicting yourself. Either no one knows about the stat changes and difficulty of obtaining it or you know something that we don't? because on one hadn you say it is insignificant and then in same sentence you say 'no one knows'. It can't be both.

The only real issue here is the 'Agony' stat and whether this means 'soft-gating' on content in the future.

Now enough of the misapplied 'immature' references - you would be better served pointing such comments at the endless complainers. There is no credible way for you to demonstrate that anything in my post history is 'immature' and I would ask that you refrain from now on.

Endless complainers atleast have a point. You on other hand are more interested in patronizing people and unhappy that they are 'complaining'. Ranting about other people rants is such a cliche.  Would be better if you focus more on the issue at hand instead of posting habits of so called 'complainers'.

I will refrain when you will refrain from telling people what to do. However i must add that you not only come across as immature but also someone very intolerant and close minded to what others have to say.

This is very simple, really.

Like most of their "revolutionary" ideas - like the lack of trinity, super limited arsenal, limited character progression, no raids, PvP without tangible consequences and so on - the lack of meaningful gear progression was a bad idea which could never provide longevity.

Fans have been in denial about that - just like ArenaNet have been in denial about it.

Now that they completely contradict themselves and do EXACTLY and PRECISELY what they CLEARLY promised would NEVER EVER happen after hardly 3 months - the fans are going to pretend it's not a big deal.

Anyone with a brain can see this completely goes against their design philosophy. It's a huge deal if you care about that kind of thing.

However, it's definitely a good thing for the game - because it will help keep it interesting for a longer time. That's because basic human psychology tells us that rewards are nice when you spend time achieving something. That's what all other themepark MMOs have realised - and ArenaNet chose to ignore because they're so fantastic at game design.

Yeah, not really.

I do have some fundamental issues with the 'end-game' in GW2 - but find all this wailing and gnashing of teeth on both sides of this particular arguement to be ridiculous.

'Grinding' does NOT mean ANY effort required to get gear.

A 'Gear-Treadmill' is NOT the same as a 4% boost in stats for items you don't even know are hard to get!?

Feelings of 'betrayal' and threats to 'leave the game', or calling ANet 'liars' et al are the hyperbole of those screaming 'me, me!' to attract attention.

Otherwise why post it here?

The almost insignificant gear progression they are introducing tries to tread the fine line between those moaning about no progression and those moaning about grinding.

YOU lot make a noise and rattle your sabres at each other and ANet try to accomodate you. The noise then just escalates - "it's not enough!"..... "it's too much!"....

Quit complaining about it online and just cancel your accounts instead of trying to convince those of us with at least an ounce of logic that the sky is going to fall down.

That would at least be putting your money where your online mouths are!

I for one will not be playing long term for other reasons - reasons far more logical it seems to me than this particular tempest in a teacup.

 

I am actually happy for gear progression but i wouldn't go as far as saying that gear progresion is insignificant. Right now it is 8% and it just for starters. Once rest of the gear peices are in we will know how insignificant it really is.

But you have to understand why these people are angry. They supported the idea and vision of Anet that exotics will be the cap for grind as far as stats are concerned and only thing that will differentiate them from one another is appearance. That is what made GW2 unique for them. An MMO which caps stats grind for good.

I think it is very immature of you to just label them as angry teems and shrug it off. I don't want same things as they  do but i understand their sentiment. 

I see you are happy following the lazy trope of re-defining the meaning of what I said and criticising THAT imaginary point of view instead of what I ACTUALLY said.

I did focus on what you 'ACTUALLY ' said. I still disagree that gear grind is insignificant. I also disagree the way you just want to shrug it off as just 'anger' and nothing more. What else did i miss? quit complaining? cancel your accounts and more patronizing?

And no it is not 4% i would say it is not even 8% but more. Some guy did the math and total came to 26% what is interesting is that 5 minutes later the thread got deleted. I tried to google it the link does come up but it only leads to that gigantic merged thread. 

Where do I use the term 'angry teens' or even hint at it? Adults quite long in the tooth are perfectly capable of regarding their opinions as the only ones that matter I assure you.

Additionally I DO understand people are angry - on both sides of this interminable arguement, and that 'anger' is a remarkable over-reaction to such a petty issue.

If it is 'petty' for you so everyoen should be on same page as you? if not you will continue to patronize them? 

I also understand that the definition of what a 'grind' is, is at the core of the issue - and that 4% (not 8%) stat increase on gear which NO-ONE yet knows the difficulty of obtaining (i.e. will it really be a 'grind' to get - taking months of raid-style chance drops or endless matt farming, or will it be like nearly every other challenge as yet revealed in GW2? - ) is an insignificant step up.

Once again, no one knows for sure how insignificant it is goign to be. You justs aid yourself  that no one knows the difficulty of obtaining it and how much the stats will end up in total once whole gear is introduced in next 3 months.

I WvWvW it won't make one shred of difference.

In PvE the 'boost' will barely be noticeable.

Still assuming. You keep contradicting yourself. Either no one knows about the stat changes and difficulty of obtaining it or you know something that we don't? because on one hadn you say it is insignificant and then in same sentence you say 'no one knows'. It can't be both.

The only real issue here is the 'Agony' stat and whether this means 'soft-gating' on content in the future.

Now enough of the misapplied 'immature' references - you would be better served pointing such comments at the endless complainers. There is no credible way for you to demonstrate that anything in my post history is 'immature' and I would ask that you refrain from now on.

Endless complainers atleast have a point. You on other hand are more interested in patronizing people and unhappy that they are 'complaining'. Ranting about other people rants is such a cliche.  Would be better if you focus more on the issue at hand instead of posting habits of so called 'complainers'.

I will refrain when you will refrain from telling people what to do. However i must add that you not only come across as immature but also someone very intolerant and close minded to what others have to say.

You should work for any paper owned by News International - they could use your skills to sell their papers.

In your eyes;

Expressing incisive criticism = 'patronising'

Expressing strong criticism = 'rant'

Concluding that endless complainers should stop doing so endlessly = 'telling people what to do'

Taking a contrary position to you = 'immature'; 'intolerant', 'close minded'

Allow me to be the one to end this escalation - if I can find out how to use the ignore list - a function of this site I have simply never felt the need to use before now.

"Here's what we believe: If someone wants to play for a thousand hours to get an item that is so rare that other players can't realistically acquire it, that rare item should be differentiated by its visual appearance and rarity alone, not by being more powerful than everything else in the game. Otherwise, your MMO becomes all about grinding to get the best gear. We don't make grindy games -- we leave the grind to other MMOs."
-Mike Obrien, President of Arenanet

Fun impacts loot collection. The rarest items in the game are not more powerful than other items, so you don’t need them to be the best. The rarest items have unique looks to help your character feel that sense of accomplishment, but it’s not required to play the game. We don’t need to make mandatory gear treadmills, we make all of it optional, so those who find it fun to chase this prestigious gear can do so, but those who don’t are just as powerful and get to have fun too.”
– Colin Johanson

 

 

it's so mind numbingly contradictory.  what could have gone worng to make them change there stance so quickly?

Nothing ,you dont code those kind of "expansions" in three months,they were allready doing those loooong time a ago.

You were not just criticising you were telling people to 'shut up'.  Someone  who is open to others opinions do not patronize them. They simply disagree and move on. That is what mature poeple do.

You are not close minded because you took contrary position to me but because you came out very rude the way you reacted to what others have to say about the current issue. You just simply labeled it as 'petty' because they have different opinion about the matter. How classy!

As far as you ignoring me. I will be rolling sleeplessly in my bed because of utter disbelief and sadness.

Nope, only people who feel decieved are ones who read other peoples comments on GW2 and never objectively read what arenanet said.

The argument is them straying from their philosophy (which was very loud and prominent in their marketing campaign), not how much this change actually affects the game. I dislike GW2 but welcome this change as a step in the right direction.

I guess it's like how it doesn't matter how little you murder someone, it's still murder?

Regardless of this being a good change or not (i believe it's good), 4% is not insigificant.

 

I don't know what games you've been playing but 4% increase on *any one useful thing* is pretty much a mandatory thing to have. It's 4% on *everything*, that's an insane buff.

 

I guess it wouldn't matter in games like GW2, where there's no damage meters (and PVE difficulty is tuned accordingly i.e. mindnumbingly easy), but if concern is regarding WvWvW - the buff is *not* insignificant.

 

I remember when season 2 gear in TBC came out, some friends laughed and said "i'm not farming for only +10 agility (or whatever). The very quickly changed their minds.

4% stat increase 8% stat increase 26% stat increase im wondering what these MATH specials smoking becouse for me its total BS

 

my stat with exotic gear

2600 atk power

now when i change the exotic rings to ascended rings

2610 atk power

and 0.2% more crit  chance

 

hows that 26%, 8% or 4% stat increase

 

and they are only giving you ring and backpack

can be crafted, can me obtained from mystic forge or in WvW

 

the ascended armors and weapons cant have sigils and runes in them, that make them weaker in general

they are used mainly in new dungeon as protection vs agony debuff

 

and no there is no gated content before you meet this agony debuff you will have few sets of these rings already
