D3 vs Guild Wars 2 no comparison

GW2 forces you to play with others... something I can't abide. It's not even on my "vague interest list".


This post made me laugh out loud... FORCES YOU TO PLAY WITH OTHERS LOL... GW2

Go play it and eat your own words.

Go on youtube, anyone sane or intelligent who has played Guild Wars 2 has called the game dog - crap.


Generalizations like that are a good way to kill any argument you have. By all accounts most people are enjoying GW 2, the hype is just a tad annoying.

The game lacks any substance whatsoever, I mean sure Diablo 3 also lacks substance.... I mean eerrr both games kinda suck.


Maybe you just don't like gaming... Time for you to look for a new hobby.

Also GW2 is has better multi player gameplay. I love it when I die and someone out of nowhere comes out to revive me. You just run into new players every time you log on and everyone works together to help finish a boss. The world is so huge you can literally get lost.

Do you really want to subject yourself to this kind of N a z i environment in a game? ArenaNet turns out to be way worse than Blizz.


dude.... he cheated.

using an exploit in a game to make yourself famous on the internet.
sorry.
LAME.
why would anybody sane want this dude to play his game?
same thing for aholery or anything else.
i like that anet wants a more civilized playerbase for their game.
they are just starting up, and are focusing on the long term players already by building a great fan base and not the jersey shore.

Well Kripp fanboi...he used an exploit to earn a ton of gold that he KNEW he should not have been able to earn. When it seems to good to be true..it is. He got banned because he exploited the game and even he knows it. I appreciate that Arenanet is not allowing this kind of stuff to go on and having the ecnomy ruined like it has been in other games...looks around...yeah...this game. If you cant see that Kripp should have been banned...well trying removing your head from your backside and look again....still cant? Well...there is no hope for you.

I have nothing against Arena nor Kripp. In fact, Kripp kind of rubs me the wrong way in the youtube vids I have seen. That being said, from what I understand (reading other forums as well):

- Exploit used by kripp was to use in game mechanics to create an item and then vendor it.
- The in game mechanics in questions, are intended to be used to create said items.
- The vendor that bought the created item is supposed to buy the item.
- The only issue was that the vendor gave too much gold (by Arena's standards) for the item.

From this I took it as such - Let's say for example in D3, you craft a flawless star emerald and npc it for 80k gold, thinking that is okay. After all, the npc tells you it will pay you 80k gold for it. Blizzard comes around and says NO YOU BANNED YOU BAD BOY YOU GO AWAY NOW. Wouldn't that be a bit ridiculous?

Not only that, his escalation from a 72 hour ban (which is okay, debated but okay) to a perma ban occured and was communicated to him through a PUBLIC FORUM? A PUBLIC FORUM??? It is one thing to announce banned accounts on your own site, but stating them on a public forum without even notifying the party in question?

Whilst giving botters (at a early stage, to give them credit where its due they did state that they will escalate bot bans to perma later on) the same time ban as individuals selling/buying stuff to the npc?

In D3 - Smoke Screen, Invulnerable Wizzie etc were all exploits "close" (not exactly as the invulnerable wizard required following specific steps to recreate, whereas GW2 vendor is... literally selling or buying something from the vendor) to what happened. They extended from poor foresight and lack of proper code checking. What did blizzard do? They took the exploit out. Did anybody get banned? No. As it isn't the player's responsibility. It is just bad programming.

What did GW2 do? Perma ban everybody initially. Then following the outcry, reducing this to a 72 hour ban IF the parties in question admit that they were doing something wrong (buying/selling to an npc) rather than Arena admitting it was their coding error.

Ridiculous.

There is no forum for GW2?

Or where you saying you didn't want to participate in the GW2 forum?

Yeah, GW2 bans you for "exploiting" their own errors in the vendors, by making something cheaper than intended by their own oversight, permanently. D3 doesn't ban anyone unless some sort of bug tells them they were botting and the actual bots are left alone.
