Actually - just look - not invisible - you can see them. It looks like a heat shimmer, not hard to deal with. People just like to complain and then learn how to play ther prefession later.

 

People forgot about all the complaints of Saboteurs in Rift - people complaining about how OP they were. They were glass cannons but people complained and Trion listened and nerfed them to oblivion.

 

Nothing new about people complaining about being killed in PvP when they are not observent.

They should also nerf thieves into oblivion. Thieves are just way too OP.

They are not - just have to learn what defeats them. Traps, my favorite skill Chaos Storm from mesmer (always whacks them). Again, people complain but learn your profession - every profession has an achilles heal.

There are only a handful of skills to defeat thief for each profession... and before you try to say that each profession is similar to thief in that sense: NO, you can defeat other professions with almost any skill set, only thief needs specific skills.

hi

Only bad players have problems with thieves in GW2.

First of all, don't run glass cannon. There is almost no reason to run full glass cannon, ever. Get some toughness (don't even need much to get a lot of benefit), get some useful utilities.

Burst/backstab thieves are -very- easy to counter, the only way they can even apply their burst is if you're distracted by someone else and they intervene as a roamer without being detected. In which case it's 2v1 and you didn't expect to always win those right?

Condition/evade thieves who slowly whittle away at people with conditions and caltrops are much, much stronger.

The worse of both is definitely the "stunlock rogue". Anything "stunlock" is utterly bad anyway. No class should be able to make another class totally unable to fight back.

This said, on my Feral druid (tank specced), I've always been laughing at rogues... ;)

Fellas/Ladies.......I need to distract you from your expert analysis of quarterly financial reports, xfire analysis, and other matters that are far above your pay grade and/or scope of understanding. 

I EMPLORE you to watch this video (linked above).  However, I need you to pay attention to the people who are fighting the Ele....not the ele itself. 

I need confirmation that these are quite possibly the worst pvp'ers ever to grace a mmo.......ever.

Thank You.
