Murphy's Law is out to get ME!!![]

Well... where to begin with the hell I've gone through in the past 24 hours. Yesterday was pretty decent. I've been having problems with 1 of my cars for the past few days, so I'm not driving it until I can have it looked at. I get ready for work, wake up a lil late, but no big, was gunna get there by 10:30p no prob. Get about a mile away from home, thud thud thud thud thud... I got a flat tire. Great! Get out, change it, cop comes buy and lends me a light (that was nice of him), I get the donut on my car, see that the belt on the tire wore through the sidewall. Well thats ok, its an old tire, these things happen. I call work, let them know I got a flat and that I'll be there as soon as I can. I drive the 12 miles to work on a donut on the front driverside. I get off the express way 1 mile from work, and I hit a nasty pothole. Well, my donut then decides to blow! I just hear HISSSSSSS... I think to myself... oh my fucking GOD! I manage to limp the car the mile on a dying tire. Rim on the donut is completely screwed, so I'll probably have to go junkyarding for a new one now. I finally get to work and punch in at about 10:50p... 50 minutes late -_-; I then hear the wonderful news that the store director expects us to run EVERY skid and M-cart in the entire backroom tonight. (for those of you who don't know, I work for a superstore called Meijer. Its half grocery, half general merchandise. I work in the grocery department on 3rd shift as an orderwriter and stocker.) We have 1 guy not show up... and just a whole lot of misc. crap all night. We end up having to stay until 10am running backstock. FINALLY get to leave... and I now get to WALK with my blown tire a mile to the nearest tire shop to have it replaced. Then I get to walk back with the now slightly heavier tire back to my car, to replace the tire. Drive home, stop off for lunch, finally get home at 12:30p. I'm already in a bad mood, and then my router decides to not let any of my wireless pc's connect to it. Just got finished fighting, and re-calibrating that with a whole set of new settings in order to get the damn laptop online for my GF. I am very tired, very sore from lugging around a car tire, and just fed-up in general. At that, I am getting my unhappy ass to bed, for some much needed R&R. Peace all. -- Isk8.png Sk8 (T)(C) 20:27, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

I didn't leave out my name by mistake, This was like a 2 hour test, and at one point I tried replacing the name field with BASEPAGENAME, which I thought worked, until it was put into an environment where the user had more than 1 word in their name, in whichcase, it only took the first word as the user page.

Yeh, I saw Entropy's talk. :D I thought you had given up on the PAGENAME thing? So I assumed this test was meant to be sans-PAGENAME.
...I guess the downside of the PAGENAME code is that it might leave the User: stuck in there, or User talk: part more importantly. Was that the issue you ran into? --GEO-logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 18:23, 5 March 2008 (UTC)
Basically, it worked fine on MY page. I then used this template on The Gates Assassin's talk page, and that stupid link to his images kept thinking his username was The. It was very screwy. The BASEPAGENAME didn't want to resolve the _'s for spaces. But I did notice that you use basepagename in your archive template, correct? Perhaps you know something I dont? -- Isk8.png Sk8 (T)(C) 18:27, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Holy Freaking Nerfbat Batman![]

This is my mostly rant on the horrible skill balances slaughtering that occurred during my sleep. Can someone fire Izzy already?

  • Shroud of Silence - Now this skill is completely useless. Waste of an elite. It had the ability to be overpowered, but in a rare instance of two.
  • Siphon Speed - I didn't use this much, but I can assure you, I won't ever be using it anymore.
  • Pious Assault - Viper is psychic!
  • Mystic Regeneration - Pet peeve #1. O M F G! First they nerf the enchantment limit, which I was ok with, because it didn't really hurt practical use of this skill. It only really hurt farmers. But now... give me a freaking break. I use this skill on 2 classes other than my Dervish (3 if you include the occasional monk farming kryta.) My Earth Ele in AB uses this as a decent self heal. With the first nerf, it was simple enough to dedicate 8 points to Earth Prayers instead of the 3. But now, its almost pointless. 13 seconds at 8 E.P. Its going to be a much larger energy drain on other classes. The 2nd class I use this on is my Assassin. I am quite furious about this change, because I don't ever think my Sin will be using this skill again. If anyone reads my character profiles, and looks at my posted skillbars, this is very strong in my trophy Assassin build. Using this with Critical Defenses and Critical Agility makes me on par with warriors in PvE. A fulltime frontline Assassin, if you will. I think now, I will go back to my roots and stop using Derv secondary on my sin. Probably go with Way of Perfection instead. 26/28(if I feel like putting back in a rune instead of attunement) per critical for 60 seconds, is MUCH better than this catastrophe of a skill update.
  • Long aftercast delays - this is one of Izzy's few goodpoints in my rant here. This has been needed for a long time.
  • Flame Djinn's Haste - I don't really see why this change occured. I used this a little when I needed my Ele to have a speed boost, usually only when running somewhere. Now, its just not a practical running skill. I'll stick with Windborne Speed from now on.
  • Glyph of Energy - The only purpose of this was to stop other professions from using it. Just the same way the nerfed Glyph of Lesser Energy before. I feel its an unnecessary change.
  • Lightning Orb - Interesting that they would buff this.
  • Shock Arrow - I rather like this update. I did like this skill for its 1sec recharge before, but its not horrible in its current form. Might make me want to pull out an air spiker again to see how this fairs.
  • Ward Against Melee - Why?? At least reduce energy cost to 10, if you are going to slaughter its recharge.
  • Cry of Frustration - GG, I might start putting this back into my Mes interrupt arsenal now that it doesn't suck me dry.
  • Enchanter's Conundrum - More logical than its previous usage.
  • Power Leak - Make up your mind on this already, Izzy. Not horrible change here, though. Probably what he should have done before.
  • Guardian - Why?? Good thing I don't bring this very often on my Prot monk, or I'd be furious.
  • Enfeeble - Buff? LOL
  • Plague Signet - Stupid Grawl!
  • Strip Enchantment - I like the life steal as opposed to gain. But I think 2 enchants is imba.
  • Wail of Doom - Very interesting change here. I think this is Izzy's way of bringing new skills to a game that won't ever have new skills. I think the functionality was fine beforehand. But this is not a bad change, this skill was mostly underused.
  • Mending Refrain - Meh, never used this much anyway. Also, when did it get changed to 2-3 regen? I only remember it at 1-3.
  • Song of Restoration - I never used motivation much, but this seems to be semi-balanced. Nerfed recharge and cost, but at least increased healing with it.
  • Soothing Memories - Might be worth bringing with me on my VWK farming now.
  • "Shields Up!" - Stupid update. Haven't used this since the last nerf.
  • "Watch Yourself!" - Pet Peeve #2. I LOVED (past tense intentional) this skill. My warrior is usually big on tactics, running as much or more than strength. This nerf is just rediculous. At least remove the recharge on it if you are going to slaughter this. In PvE, all monsters manually attack you. This skill will last like 3 seconds in PvE. This is a perfect example of a nerf for PvP usage, and screwing the little guy.
  • Lion's Comfort - Pet peeve #3. I LOVED this skill BECAUSE of the fact that tactics made it better. The fact that I use as much if not more tactics than strength, was one reason I would choose this over heal sig. I agree that the adrenaline gain is a nice addition, but I doubt I'll be using this over heal sig from now on.
  • Sprint - Um, ok. Sure, why not.

Notes: This is a rant from a mostly PvE player. I tend to believe that most skill updates are focused towards PvP players, and tend to not matter what it does to the PvE side. To quote Fossa from the GWOnline forum, "PvP is always the king, the deciding factor for every change to skills. If PvE is broken Anet sends along a new mini pet or a double drop weekend, if PvP is affected the skills are changed. Lets face it, PvE is the bastard child of GW, something necessary to get big number of players but never the deciding factor when it comes to gameplay changes. - Fossa @" Quoted for truth (Author's note) Posting this on my talk page rather than the game updates talk page, because I am making comments about multiple skill updates, rather than 1 section, which is how the topics seemed to fall in those talk pages. I would feel silly to create a section, just for my own rant

Well, as an ex-PvP player (<brag>top 1000 GvG guild, r6+ HA guild...even though im only r4 ¬_¬</brag>) and current PvE player i have mixed opinions about this. Guild wars is often referred to as a competetive, PvP based game, yet competetive PvP is very Inaccessible to new players. On the other hand, if a skill is imbalanced in PvP then there is much more at stake than if it is imbalanced in PvE, with $100,000 tournament prizes et al. However, since the vast majority of the player base appears to be PvE orientated, it seems Anet are screwing over most of their players in favour of an elite minority, which is hardly fair. Imo skill balance was at it's best shortly after nightfall was released, before the nerf of LoD. While there were some problems with RaOs and spiritway, i think both PvP and PvE were fairly well balanced then. True people used to pLay over-balanced builds like paraway or B-spike, but those had plenty of weaknesses, so im not sure that was necessarily a bad thing - it certainly made HA more interesting anyway. However, for the last few months it seems that the updates have just been nerf nerf nerf, and things are getting continually worse for PvE players, but not really any better for PvP players either, who are also perfectly capable of being hit by the nerfbat when Anet goes build destroying. Note: this rant used to be a lot more detailed and cohesive, but i got an edit conflict and cba typing it again.

Or if you EC, you can hit back on your browser, and copy all that you posted :P. I can agree with you on the skill balancing up until Nightfall. I think they pushed Nightfall out way to fast, and alot of it was Imba to begin with, take Mystic Regen. If they had put the full year into Nightfall, that they did on Factions, it may have turned out better, and who knows... maybe even Paragons wouldn't suck rule so much :P. And also Viper, you have a new userbox... Enjoy.
