Hey, does anyone still play GW1 or GW2?

I still log into GW1 from time to time (mainly to collect birthday presents and do a few solo farming runs here and there, etc.), but for all intents and purposes I'm done with that game from a serious standpoint. On a similar note, I see that Guild Wars 1 Guru is shutting its doors this month so that kind of sucks. Good times reading that forum over the years...

Regarding GW2, I still plan to keep up with the story (as it comes - including expansions), but in any other capacity (ie. hardcore, farming, competitive, community, etc.) I think my days are numbered in that game as well. The game has pretty much passed me by at this point (too much focus on game modes I am not interested in), and I have lost almost all confidence that ANet is interested in making the best game for the playerbase instead of the best game for their bank account. Simply put, I think there are more fun games around to play that are in turn more rewarding for my time investment than GW2. With that said, yeah, I still log into GW2 daily for my login rewards/home instance nodes and a couple of times a week I stick around in-game to play for a little while.

I don't know what the guild situation is like re: [FU] at this point as I have been strictly solo for ~3 years now in GW2. I imagine it's dead as a doornail. I'd have to take the time to get to know an all-new crowd of players as most of my contact list is inactive central. I have no interest in joining a guild at this point unless ANet changes their tune in a lot of respects and rejuvenates my interest tenfold. I couldn't ever join a guild to be an also-ran member, and I can't work up the strength to be anything but given the current GW2 climate.

Never count me out completely, though. The blood of Guild Wars runs through my veins. Cool

Every few months I have another burst of interest in GW2, and play for maybe a month before falling off again. It's not that I don't love the game, I just find it hard to stay motivated to play for long periods. Right now I'm in an off-period, waiting for the motivation to get back and continue working on my precursor/eventually legendary..

I've gotten the GW2 itch back again. Smile No idea how long it will last, but the momentum generated by Tuesday's Quarterly Update will be a good barometer. I actually have some goals in-game again like working on the legendary fractals backpiece Ad Infinitum - so that's nice. I've set up a Discord server for f'ing around. Owen (Chorseman) and I have been hanging out on it at night, doing fractals and Auric Basin Multi-Maps and stuff. Most likely going to do the Living Story s3 + cheevos as well. We both popped into Guild Wars 1 the other night and John (Scott Ware) was actually online there. Apparently he quit GW2 and went back to GW1 to live that speed clear life again. Cool


I put the ECTOs Discord Server information/instructions on the forums portal in case anyone wants to use it for anything. (It's free and damn good quality, so go nuts.) I have push-to-talk required for voice on the ECTOs Discord so a download of the client is required to actually talk. You can still use the web interface to listen in.

Here's a permanent invite to the ECTOs Discord server:
https://discord.gg/KyhP2mv



I plan to clean up these forums over the next couple of weeks and start to post again here and there, at least. Not gonna lie - I have absolutely no idea what to do with the forums at this point so if you see me trying a bunch of random things that is why. All I do know is I don't really want to see these forums abandoned to the point Forumotion deletes them outright. These forums are grandfathered in to having no ads for registered members. Smile

Good job Steve, something to look out for on the forums and some company ingame if i get back that itch. (which will most probably come soon as Dota 2 season is ending.)

Link, u like bursts dont you?

Reading through the Quarterly Update patch notes now. Seems pretty interesting. Kinda miffed that I just spent all last week getting up to 150 AR for Fractals only for them to change the f'ing system around! Granted, AR buffs are in a much better state now, but some advance warning would've been nice. Smile

The Discord widget - in a word - SUCKS. Doesn't ever update the people who are moving between channels, and the 'Connect' button doesn't even have a working invite attached to it. Not going to use the standard widget but if I can find a third-party one somewhere I might try that out. For now I have typed up text instructions into the ECTOs Forums Portal Discord section, but I plan to spruce it up with a few graphics here and there eventually.

I'm doing alright. I have a few things that I want to work on this fall so I'm pretty much taking it easy at the moment. Enjoying the summer. Smile

Mio, if you still use Steam, add me to friends. My name is TideSwayer on there too.

LOL. It's from one of the most popular comedies of all-time, Caddyshack!
