  • No balance patch… this was a damn joke…

    • Frozenize

      Balancing is not an easy job. If you think you can do it better and faster than them then apply for work and do the job. Do not sit here and QQ about it.

      • Gokuhill

        wow

        • Frozenize

          It does not matter how they balance it. There are always people who always unsatisfied and cried so yeah my point apply to them. Because if they think they can do a better job then do it, otherwise adapt and stfu.

          • Neltisen

            one do not have to be a cook to notice if the soup was sultry

          • Gokuhill

            no, i meant world of warcraft

      • Hurf

        “waah, how dare you insult my precious anet masters, they can do no wrong!”
        no sweetie

      • minion_condi_necro

        This is a flawed argument when it comes to criticism but I’ll go ahead and let you make a fool of yourself.

    • Raizel

      I don’t play PvP anymore since 2 years, only PvE and rarely WvW now and it feels much more better, so I can’t care less about balance patches.
      And I suggest you to do the same, GW2’s PvP is crap, GW2 is a wonderful game for PvE but if you like competitive modes, I really suggest you to find another game.

    • Alot

      Two peanuts are walking down the street when one peanut is a salted. Peanut.

  • Thanathos

    Enduring Hatred is still pretty confusing. Do I have to use an axe? Do those 20 seconds restart after every kill or is it 20 seconds for all 4 kills? What exactly does “sequentally” mean, like, do I need to engage 4 mobs in combat one after another instead of just jumping into a single fight with 4 mobs?

    • Thanathos

      Edit: I jumped into a fight with 4 baby spiders and it worked. Only condition I was missing before was the axe.

  • Gokuhill

    ohh, and anet forgot to mention that they took away Gwamm titles and achie points for gw1 achies. nice

  • Asda

    That’s it?

    That’s the big patch you had to “delay” because you wanted to take a snow day?

    • Answerer

      That’s it, yes.

      No, no matter how big the patch was, the delay was the bad weather.
      Even if it was just minor tweaks, the responsible people weren’t at the office
