Well, thanks alot for the links, but it's irrelevant for me since there's some items on this site that are really in the game but have the stats wrong (some Legendaries especially). So I really doubt the stats are right and even if they were, from the links you gave me, the only difference in stats to those rings are a small +7 to stats. You call this enourmous?? When you have around a 1000 points in this stat, getting +7 to it won't change anything at all. Bear in mind that the stats you see at the bottom of the red ring of death (the stats in white) are the upgrade slots integrated into the Ascended items. So yeah even if they had a +15 difference in stats, its still nothing when you have 1000 points in those stats. It's nothing game breaking whatsoever.

Again, you're leaving out the infusions.

Along with the fact ANet refuses to promise that Ascended is the last tier.

Gw2 being a btp game makes it difficult to boycott. With a subscription game you are more likely to be listened to as you can cancel your subscription in protest and get better service and results. Arenanet will do whatever they like.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

That still doesn't change anything. I said +15 exactly because of the infusions that may add some +5 here and there. Don't tell me you think +15 out of a 1000 is still a big deal...Hell even +30 isnt really a big deal when you think about it.

As for their refusal to promise that Ascended is the last tier, it surely won't be since legendary is the ultimate goal and they didn't release any legendary armors yet. And the legendaries that will be released later will be on par with the Ascended gear.

I'd love to know how you figured that, given that (a) legendaries and exotics have identical stats, and (b) there are no gear slots which have legendary items available (weapons) which also have ascended items available (rings and cloaks).


So, basically, no such thing has been shown, you're either lying or repeating a lie that was told to you.

That was tried in GW1 to the detriment of the game (the healer protests at THK for example).

The point is, is that no matter what people complain about in forums, official ones or otherwise, it can be ignored as a 'vocal minority' thing, which often may well be the case, for it to be really taken seriously, then a massive in game protest of some kind has to take place, but yeah, no guarantees it will have the desired effect.

That could also be called terrorism - not a good play in my book. Just saying....

A protest isnt terrorism, not even a little bit

I know A-net is trying to offer a different experience in GW2 but we need some type of pve progression.

Just be happy it isn't raiding...

I've never had a subscription game listen to me because I've unsubbed.  LotRO - still going... RIFT - Trion could give a shit.  Sub games already have your money too.  I paid my box prices plus years of subs.  I don't get some magical sub-refund (that would be sweet eh?).  Just saying, it doesn't really make a difference one way or the other.

If a community is united enough to stage a protest the CCP saw with EVE last year, then maybe.

----------------------------

As for me, I plan on playing the hell out of this event.  I have relatives visiting on the free trial and a guild ready to lay waste.

Curse you AquaScum!

Irrelevant. This has nothing to do at all with what we talked about. Ascended gear won't ever give you a +250 to stats compared to exotics, even with full gear. Try harder next time.

The fact that so many people stopped playing is most likely why they are adding this gear now. 

 

So if more people stop playing after they add ascended gear you have a chance!

Servers will break.

Why NOT have some kind of gear to work for? I do feel that it should be seperate from WvW at least, but still it gives people something to do besides just grinding the same mobs over and over repeatedly as a sort of pve aspect.
