I'm finding myself annoyed with not only the lag, but the run to the battles in WvW. I know I'm just spoiled from Halo multiplayer awesomeness, but it's so annoying to be running for 10 minutes, fighting for a minute (depending on how risky you want to be), dying, running for 5 minutes back to the battle, and so on. This might sound weird, but if the rewards didn't go towards my GW2 character, there's no way in hell I'd play WvW as a stand alone game. I almost find myself not wanting to fight something so I don't have to run back to the battle, which is kinda ass-backwards.
I'm starting to really despise choosing human. The majority of mobs I've fought since starting have been centaurs and human bandits. I'm in the 25-35 area after Kessex Hills and it's the same thing. Same mobs, same scenery, and the most tiresome, the same music.
Here's a legitimate complaint...
WHY IS THERE NO FIRST PERSON MODE FOR SCREENSHOTS!? I would fucking LOVE to be able to take a screenshot of a dragon or scenery WITHOUT MY FAT ASS IN THE WAY. My god this is the most annoying thing in the world. Trying to get a good screenshot of The Shatterer or Tequatl is fucking IMPOSSIBLE because angling the camera down to, you know, LOOK UP AT THE GIANT MOB, makes it so my character takes up 75% of the screen.
I'll make that a complaint and add in that their Vista platform jumping is starting to piss me off; MMO never do well in platform design and whenever it is in a game, it doesn't actually function like a platform, but you have to play it like it did. IE, even the tiniest vertical terrain bit will stop you from being able to jump up/forward, kind of like how knock back skills will get stopped by any little tiny rock.
FUCK YOU VISTAS ARE THE GREATEST THING EVER
Arah still broken. Going to bitch every day until they fix it.
Just enter WvW and kill a few things, or log on an alt character. Both mean you don't have to bother leaving the area you're already at.
i came to make a small complaint but saw lucavi got the banhammer and now i'm too happy to think about anything else. first world problems :3
Why the fuck do I start at the beginning of the zone when I die during my story missions? And you know, not at a check point..
Buggy missions + instant deaths = backtracking through a minefield
Completely finished Arah story mode dungeon only to have the the final scene not trigger and get stuck, without a way to continue, having to leave and lose all progress.
Which asshole designed the topography of Orr to be so fuckulated? Srsly. I don't find the monsters and shit as difficult as everyone was complaining about, it's navigating the damn place trying to find all of the PoIs.
Personally, my gripes are that there are no way to /check other players. It would be extremely helpful if we could see the gearing and true level of another player. I know it would be too much to ask for to be able to see their trait spec as well, but its something that would help alot. Then there are titles/icons. I would love to be able to see these without having to actually select other players. My friend got his 100% star and it only shows up if you select him. Not much of an epeen thing to wear your star if 98% of people will never see it.
Ran into my first instance-stopping glitch last night while doing a high lvl 40 story mission on my thief. I got to the point where I had to warn an npc that enemies were attacking this fortress, but every time I tried talking to her, she would turn to me, and say nothing. If stuff like this becomes a consistent problem as I get higher leveled, I can imagine that being really annoying.
Only story quest bug I've had is it not progressing when I died to the mob at the end. When I ran back and killed it it was stuck, after restarting and doing it a second time it worked fine though. There is a lot of bugged dynamic events and skill points I've come across though.
For your viewing pleasure.
Also, the grass looks like shit.
I prefer my complaints to be structured like the first part of the video. The second part was something something dog shit.
Anyways my random complaint is that I can't pick up the game since I have to purchase my fucking textbook for networking class and blew $120 on that >_<
