Today, Guild Wars 2 got a big new update. I take a first look at the Third Episode of Living World Season 3

Guild Wars 2 Living World Season 3 Episode 3 First Look
Halloween is over in Tyria. The Job-o-Tron's have been set to work, dismantling the decorations and scrubbing …

I have a long rant and since it's GW2 related and longer than 140 characters it is going here. NSFW warning: verbage.


TL;DR: There is no TL;DR. Read everything.


I run around with the Easy Access Quartet of world bosses almost every day, helping people out when I can. However, there is one stop during this Easy Access Quartet where someone throws a blockade of fuckery at us.


It's not Great Jungle Wurm. It's not Shadow Behemoth. It's not the Svanir chief.


It's Fire Elemental. Every. Single. Fucking. Time.*


What happens? During either one of the last two events in the Fire Elemental chain (Kill the Fire Elemental, Guard C.L.E.A.N. 5000 during main spill cleanup), someone sneaks in and activates the panel that shields the reactor which accesses the Champion Steam Ogre.


Why is this bad? Because the status quo is someone charging up the Fire element on the Matrix Cube Key after killing the FE by accessing the destroyed golem. By the time we get to the _now reactivated shielded reactor_, because of the prior breach, the console override protection is up, and we can't use the key to usher in the 30+ who JUST FINISHED FE AND WERE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE STEAM OGRE FIGHT.


There's a term for this. It's called "griefing". And apparently ArenaNet doesn't care.


If you've been a victim of this, I encourage you to bitch (POLITELY) at ArenaNet about this. Maybe if they get more reports they might look at changing the credentials necessary to keep this whole thing streamlined.


Sorry if I'm being arrogant but I needed to vent.

GRIEFING (grEEf-ing) N. To abuse a game's mechanics to prevent an individual(s) from normally progressing -- usually in a malicious manner.

Legendary armour! It actually looks pretty cool. Thank god there's no tacky partical effects.

ArenaNet also made their trademark vague announcement for their Halloween event. Hopefully it won't be another rehash of the previous year with something missing. Details should slowly trickle out over the next wee while.

TL;DR: i am slowly overcoming my anxiety issues and my feelings of inferiority by playing this game and most of all being part of this community. Seriously guys! Thanks!


So first of a little background, so you'll know where i'm coming from:

for 18 years now i've been aware of my autism (i'm 33 years old) through a lot of bullying from others, and difficulty to understand social interaction and feel comfortable with talking to others, i've developed a deep rooted sense of inferiority. One that bothers me to this day.


I've started playing MMO's to find a "safe" place to have fun with other people. Because, believe it or not, I WANT to be social and have friends, even though it's so difficult for me. I've hopped around several different MMO's but always felt i didn't belong. Hotjoins and pugs were disasters to join, and i always felt like i was holding the group back, because i wasn't good enough. Most of the time that was confirmed by the chat (and me being kicked). Most disheartening of all was the experience i had with guilds. Every guild i joined before GW2 disbanded within two weeks, even when i tried really hard to keep everyone together. MMO's in the end didn't look to be so "safe" after all.


Then, around the dragon bash patch, i started playing GW2. mostly because i didn't have to pay a subscription. The first few months ingame were mostly fun. with the exception of dungeons. I noticed the same problems with pugs as i did with other MMO's, and kept feeling too low skilled to do those. so i kept to open world content. Where i did notice some nice people in chat.


But then I had the good fortune to join Mist Angels [MIST]. Like in the open world chat, this guild had an open attitude and was willing to help me learn. As long as i was willing to learn from them. Slowly, over the years, they've helped me feel comfortable to "raise the bar" and try out more difficult stuff in game. from dungeons to fractals, from fractals to raids.


Even though I still feel I'm holding my guild back when it comes to raids (my autism does get a little in the way of processing all the information coming at me during the fights). It did help me reach a major milestone a few days back: I've finally defeated the last HoT story fight on solo, something I never thought I had the skill for.


It made me realize that even if this is just a silly game I play to be around other people and have fun with them. It helped me to realize that I'm not as inferior as I thought, and that where I think i am lacking, I have the ability to grow. That might sound rather mundane to the most of you. but to me, it's mind boggling and amazing. It offers perspective I hope I'll be able to take with me to my real life and hopefully overcome the boss fights waiting for me there.


I'm getting emotional just writing this down, so I'll stop before I get too sappy (sorry for the trahearne joke). This means a lot to me, so I thought it was well worth a big thank you to the entire community of GW2, not just Mist Angels, everyone! Your well rounded and open minded way of being fair to eachother as much as possible is the main reason why I'm starting to overcome my feelings of inferiority.


Thank you, keep on being awesome please!

If by 18-20 you mean 19-21 for everyone who doesn't live in the UK, then I vote for that ^^

  • Sep 28, 2016, 3:44:47 PM

I will still join as much as I can if spots allow, but KING runs aside I'm also part of a team that sells raid slots. Neither of these groups I can shove aside unfortunately. Again I will do the best I can but I don't think I will be able to join much.

  • Sep 28, 2016, 5:59:46 PM

No worries Bovan, you've been a great help for a long time, and we always appreciate whatever help we can get :)
