You don't understand what I just said.  Just like you don't understand and think GW2 servers have a 1500 person limit (Hahaha), or that culling = phasing.

 

Don't know what to tell you bud... post history says it all... you blatantly misconstrue what people say, then you refuse to answer when called on it to prove how what they said translates to what you misconstrue it as.  Try to twist and skew previous discussions as much as you want, it's in my history where I quote you, everytime you do it, and you never address it. 

Hey caef you have been called on the 1500 person limit per server ....it's pretty simple put up or shut up ,once you stray away from opinions and start trying to use real numbers  you actually need proof

Why would I feel obligated to do that when earnings reports and official gw2 wikis aren't enough evidence for other things?  You guys just don't seem to want to accept the cold hard facts... but here's the thing... what I say is true... I've provided evidence, it has been proven... what meowhead does is simply misconstrue what others are saying, I myself do not do that, i'll let people say whatever they want, and i'll treat it exactly as they intend it to mean, I won't twist it on them, because that is tacky and a sign of being on the losing sign... anyway... when people can graciously admit they were dead wrong about the china numbers, the earnings report, and gw2 culling/phasing wiki... then you can demand more proof, until then proof doesn't seem to matter in your minds.

LOL as I thought instead of a long winded bullshit statement just show me where it states a 1500 player per server cap ? Once a proven liar always thought of as a liar I'm afraid ....but don't worry I don't need facts "I'll take your word for it "

OP  8/23/13 8:07:44 PM#64

Guys  - ANY BULLSHIT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AS I AM THE OP.

 

I asked for opinions on what people thought about culling no longer being used. Instead I get shit like ' the servers only support 1500 peoples' - BLAH BLAH BLAH.

 

That is not what I asked for. I have flagged any response that is about anything but that.

I own the game. I log in. When I do I see people. Lots of people. Always lots of people running around. Never once did i ever feel the game was in trouble in terms of an active population. And that was when there was culling. But there are still players in GW2. Always, lots and lots of players. We all know this is true.

So why? Why bait these arguments?

I wanted people's assessment OUTSIDE  of the 'official forums'. What is hard to understand about that.

I was going to ask the same thing and changed my mind, I'm glad someone did, many GW2 threads seem to be a call to come troll the game.

It is a forum about GW2.

Apparently writing a fact - culling was removed and you can see more players now - coupled with an opinion - it is impressive how many people play this game - is a bait thread now.

I guess for some people the only good thread about GW2 will be "GW2 closed is servers".

People, just let it go. You will be happier.

 

 

 

 

 

Let what go?  I have no opinion one way or another about GW2, I'm certainly not "negative nancy" about it... This is what I'm referring to; as well as this "negative Nancy's please go elsewhere." Or the age old "usual suspects" lead in to posts about information.... It's unnecessary, all it does is invite that type of behavior and feed it.

Yep it is in extremely poor taste when people can't absorb or respond to what is actually said, and instead just throw out ad hominem attacks to try and discredit any post in their mind.

I have been enjoying the no culling alot lately. Me and some players were waiting on Tequatil and ended up running a bunch of the DE's while we waited and we all started chatting it up talking about well anything then when the dragon spawned all went silent till the fight was over we all got in a group to go into Orr and clear some of the major DE's like the shrines its was fun.


To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

If people read "culling is gone. It is impressive to really see how many people are in the game" and feel it is a bait thread, they do have a problem.

If someone write "it is impressive how many players are in x place in SWTOR" or in EVE or in WOW or in FFXIV or in EQ, etc, in each of its own game forums, I certainly don't feel baited to go and post there.

I won't even read it in the first place because I don't care about games I'm not playing.

Apparently you don't even have an opinion about GW2, just about those that play it and post about it.

Geezergamer post and yours are actually much more flame bait than anything in the OP.

So if you don't play GW2, you don't have an opinion about it, what are you doing around?

Or was it just because you don't play GW2 you thought the OP was saying "GW2 has no culling opposed to all other games out there and look at how many players the game has compared to all other games"?

If you played the game you would know that if you arrived at the bank in Lion's Arch (or at World Boss location) you would see 5 people, 2 seconds later you would see 20 people appearing (they were already there just not being shown on your screen). Now you see 40 or 50 people (that were there before, but due to culling weren't being drawn).

And that's the point. Why go on forums of games you don't play and are not interested in playing just to post negative crap (and often lies and totally imaginary facts and invented numbers)? Why go on a crusade against a game you have zero interest in? Come on, 235 posts only about bashing GW2 (not talking about the OP here, you know who)!

That's something I can't understand. I don't like Darkfall, and sometimes mention it here or in the pub when the conversation is appropriate, but it wouldn't come to my mind to go on the Darkfall forums and spam a negativity crusade there... I dunno, where I live it's called maturity and respect towards other people who enjoy something different. I also don't go to the local Tea house and mock people there because only Pubs are for real men, making up numbers that beer drinkers have more body hair than tea drinkers. That's something I just don't understand.

/rant off.

Yes, culling is off, and yes, you can see a lot of people playing, and that's it. And that is great for the players of this game.

No need to add imaginary, totally unrelated numbers and made up "facts" in order to try to bash the game based on that fact. So much time wasted which could have been spent participating positively in the forum of an enjoyed game instead.
