Hello FA, my name is Marcos and I am from Brazil. I used to play gw2 with [HOPE] back in the past but I guess nobody from HOPE plays anymore

 

I am planning to get back to the game but I need to know a few things first..

 

Do I need to buy the exp? I stopped playing before the exp release

The game changed a lot from that time?

GvGs still exists?

Guilds still to that circle jerk on the maps?

and stuff like that..

 

thanks <3

 

and if Tyron gets here, Neymar > Peru

If you play core guardian, you don't really need HoT.

GvGs still exist but not as serious.

 

And damn, you really coming back and why aren't you using your original forum account?  Contact an admin for password change if you need.

Yes, I used to play core guardian, but if gvg is dead I think i'll play more casual and probably will want to see the new content..

Drigan changed my password back in the past but I lost it again, now I have this one that I know i'll never forget the password again lol

I'll do the verify thing when I do get back!

Few decent guilds. Current meta is boring with condi, and boon sustain balled up groups. Check it out for yourself though. :)

  • Do I need to buy the exp? I stopped playing before the exp release
    • If you're main guardian, no, but you should look for a sale for HoT when it goes up; the specializations are great fun across all classes.


  • The game changed a lot from that time?
    • In regards to WvW, not much has changed with the recent exception of skirmishes, server-links (servers merges), and the condition creep taking it's role <vs> the power creep you've experienced.


  • GvGs still exist?
    • There are a few guilds on FA that actively GvG, there are many guilds outside of FA that GvG and there's a scene but it's not competitive per-say; it's more of a recreational activity these days. The toxicity of GvG hurt the butts of carebears a while ago but it's gotten better this past year.


  • Guilds still circle jerk on maps?
    • Not sure what you mean, most guilds have their own agenda on FA, some guilds work together on maps. I haven't experienced a "circle jerk" for over a year, now.


  • If Tyrion gets here
    • he's recently returned from a small hiatus

I believe Haem summed it up pretty well.

 

Where meta has changed, those of us that care and still love GW2 have adapted and still have lots of enjoyment in WvW. Whether it is GvG, roaming, havoc, or massive garri/smc fights what have you.

 

Come check it out!

GvG its dead, but people are trying to make a revival Agg/Hymn are back, as you can remember Faov, allways try to prove, Hymn was better that Agg. So lately they had been doin only scrims, till now i dont listen anything about an " Official " you know people still give a fuck about if is official or no ... 
GS too is making a comeback, BoRP who took most of GS core now are rebuilding in JQ. KEK was taking a break of GvG, idk if they too will make a comeback ..

Outside of those 5 who i believe can defeat between each other any time, you have RISE/DIE/BOO/BnR/IIII, who had been doin GvG in a casual way.

Below that you have TBT/TM/DUI/VR/BOMB/IV/OnS/AoEs. That can enter into GvG anytime.

Now theres a small spark of hope to rebuild a GvG Scene ?  I will say YES it is but it will depend on how and who take the lead on this ..

There are literally 4 GS players in BoRP. Veridian, Arete, Boom, Tsunami. If you count Jerrika that's 5. Most of GS's core either quit or went to Maguuma and joined Mada.

 

There are a couple of HOPE players that still play. Me, Aditae, Takagi Chrome (that's his account name), Hyperballad, Star is now the leader of KEK, along with Daddy Div who was Ark driver. 

 

IIII disbanded and most of them joined Agg who for one reason or another are convinced they can run power builds (spoiler: you can't) against the meta. You legitimately MUST run the meta (celestial shout reapers, celestial mercy guardians, condi rev, minstrel tempest, power zerker, staff thief, mesmer) in order to stand a chance when fighting a guild of even skill. Also, IIII was what most would consider the current incarnation of EP. 

 

The top guilds right now are KEK (FUN/Ark/HOPE conglomeration) and BoRP (Woe, a bit of GS, and a bunch of EU players). Below them is probably GS and BnR. We (GS) stomped SF and OnS in roster v roster and RISE has dodged us in 15s but have beaten us in RvR, although they run significantly larger than us. Everyone else is more or less in the same tier and can beat eachother depending on who plays better that night.

 

In terms of open field, VR is probably the best on NA due to the fact they run specifically for open field very well.

 

The top 3 servers at the moment are Mag, BG, JQ. BG is probably the largest at this point and JQ is the weakest of the 3. Mag's playstyle is extremely annoying to face.

Another thing you might like is that ANet has added a way to track KDR of servers you can epeen harder

[BnR] died about 2-3 weeks ago, they are re-trialed into [BoRP] and a few others are looking to reform with [TDS].

hey, I remember you! <3

Star still plays this and his guild is named "KEK"... why I am not surprised? lol

Wow forgot about Hayb's existence, haven't seem him around in a long time.

 

Sometimes I see very few hope members, only one I've seen is Valco and even she hasn't been on much at all. 

 

Game is still fun even though some say it's dead, but it's prob cause I PvP more than anything else LOL. WvW is still good if you have a good guild to roll with (Holla @ DIE/APS <3)

 

If you want to enjoy it then you will, there's always stuff to do as usual.

 

Welcome back <3
