Guild Wars 2» Disappointed future

Friday 22nd August, 2014 | Posted by Roguey | Comment 1 comments

Over at guildmag they recently asked the community to send in questions, to put to developers (at Gamescom 2014). Amongst the questions were things such as daily achievement cap, camera views, precursor crafting, super Adventure Box etc. Seen below;

However after watching the interview it kindof made me feel disappointed about the future Guild Wars 2. A lot of the answers were either; we cant say, or not at this time - including precursor crafting.

Awhile back I started to make a legendary weapon when I got brick-walled by the precursor. Ive tried maybe x300-500 rares and 40-50 exotics with no luck at the mystic forge. After all the effort, I just had to gave-up on it (with 3/4 parts complete).

It seems their main focus is the living story; which for me has been a bit of let-down. Each part is completed in just a couple of hours, with no chance of getting any real loot for your troubles (I really hate loot-less monsters). After that, you have replay it to tempt the achievements. Sure the map has changed a little, but it doesnt really effect the daily grind in GW2 (which they promised it wouldnt be at the start).

For a game getting to the 2 year mark, it kind-of needs a new place, more loot and a bigger choice of weapons/skins. I really hope they are working on either Cantha or Elona.

Guild Wars 2» Coloured commander tags...

Saturday 16th August, 2014 | Posted by Roguey | Comment 0 comments

After a long time, it looks like Arena-Net has finally listened to what commanders want; the choice of coloured tags. Being able to change your tag-colour will help commanders separate themselves on the map. It can be a bit confusing seeing a load of blue-tags.

However this news comes has a mixed blessing, as Arena-Net will be increasing the cost of commander-tags to 300g (basically three times the current price), and each colour will have to be brought separately (as it wont be selectable when tagging-up).

The only positive is that commander tags will be to account bound. So I would recommend that you decide now if you want a tag or not. Maybe Arena-net may change their minds before the actual release, as this seems very harsh.

This feature is planned in the next feature pack, due on the 9th Sept.

[update] I found a video showing you more, below;

[Update] It appears that its not 300g for each colour has originally stated in the video. It will now be 300g for a tag, which will unlock all colours - twitter, forum
