    yeah i started using them just a few weeks ago, got Guildwars 2 (MISTAKE) dirt cheap, anno 2070 and battlefield 3 after all that peer pressure on teamspeak :D they seem legit enough, and whenever i have a problem they literally reply in minutes!

    Guild wars 2 is alright..... Core gameplay wise, the first game is better. Theyve taken a lot out of the game and in many cases havent replaced it with better or equal content. I couldnt stop myself playing GW1 but with GW2 i dont care at all if i log on or not. even when i do log on its only for about 10-30mins before i decide that im totally batshit bored and go play something else

    I had the same problem. I loved GW1, had all character slots filled with lvl 20's and maxed out armor and greenie weapons (aside from a warrior who still has my perfect pink chaos axe xD), and it died out and there's rarely anyone online. But it had missions and endgame content to work to, and you didnt spend a month getting to max level. GW2 i bought it, played it for 2 hours straight, logged out, next day played it for 30mins and died of boredom and decided i couldnt be bothered, especially with the general lack of the missions you did in the original with anyone who was around in the enclosed area or with a tonne of henchmen you could customise.

    well, the Idea was that they wanted players to work together.... But the time gap between GW1 and GW2's release meant people have gotten used to playing by themselves and nobody cares to team up with each other.

    getting to Level 80 with thief was a little adventure, but once i started doing the storyline, the game just became such a drag. and adventuring around the map just got boring as Im more of a PvP player.

    I love PvP but I hate WvWvW as there is no skill involved - its just non-stop zerging. I want them to bring back similar Arena's Like TA, RA, GvG and more so AB.

    Until they release their first expansion pack, I will more or less stay away from the game.

    Id rather it was just GW1 but with the item, weapon and skill system, a lvl cap of 30 and with the same size world as GW2, but with defined mission areas. GW1 became solo because there wasnt that many players to do multiplayer content with in the first place. GW2 has plenty of players, in most areas there are players around to do teamquests with, but that wont last long. PVP was way better in the first one.

    yeah. thats another part of the game that bores me... I like making my own builds but Anets excuse was that it takes a lot of time and effort to balance skills. In GW1 half the fun was building your own builds instead of just copying builds off PvX which everyone else would be using.

    I guess this wouldnt be so bad. if the choice of skills they left us with were actually any good. Some skills are alright but the majority of them are just lame. otherwise - no skill involved and it just becomes mundane, routine and I start to play on autopilot.

    The game itself is still in its early stages though. but I really expected better for a game thats been in the works for how many years???

    No, we are not having a dirty sales talk here, its just helping each other find the best prices. I am sure you will understand, inflation has gotten worse lately. ;)

    Can't believe OCUK is actually owned by another company now... so no more M Proudfoot? Was kinda amusing reading through all the criminal charges he's clocked up.

    Here's some bad sh*t he decided to post on his own forums:

    This guy here managed to save a screenie of the thread before he deleted it, there's a little article snippet from Watchdog aswell.

    I've always hated OcUK - it's been nearly 10 year since I've bought something from them.

    So I was working today... could care less about the job itself as I had not received any training which pretty much ended up in me sitting/walking around 'do-nothing' 9hr shift... HOWEVER during my shift, my mind wandered and i started singing this song....

    I just finished one of those. Managed to sit there for 8 hours doing.... F*CK ALL. Rather annoyed at being told to stay at work, when there is no work to be done.

    Yea, not much over minimum either.
    I generally enjoy goofing off but looking busy is really tiring :p

    Well, I'm not sure tbh I'd like the new Need For Speed, or just some good driving game in general or RPG. I'm open to offer's to make it easy.

    Encountered one of the worst sites Ive been to at work.... there were 4 of us. 2 of the guys were alright - we're on the same level etc etc. the last guy had to be a total dick and make himself a self proclaimed team leader and give me a bollocking for the way I sat after 4hrs of non stop standing up and dealing with customers.

    I could hear them guys arguing all the way through the day over the radio. I was made to do endless patrols and that turd didnt make my shift go any quicker.

    I have tomorrow off, so im sitting here with a small stock pile of kopparberg chillin, tired as fuck
