So, I’m pretty angry right now.

I spent a lot of time, effort, energy, and gems into acquiring my two and a half exotic sets. I understood this to be an investment because, like GW1, this gear wouldn’t become obsolete.

With the implementation of Ascended gear, I’ve realized that this wasn’t the case. All of the gear that I so painstakingly earned and bought is now obsolete. I’ve realy worked for nothing.

I love the idea of horizontal progression – like GW1, working towards extra skins and other non-combat ways to differentiate your character. I feel chated, lied to, and deceived.

I would like a refund for my gems and for my exotic gear. Or, I would like them transmuted into Ascended gear.

stop putting this same material on the forums, if you’re smart enough to write this up, you should know there is a way to have this done. Look under refunds on the support section. This is not constructive or conversational, its subjective and worn out.

Also the ToS says they can change the game any time they want, you pay for the right to borrow their property to create a character. They are nice enough to have a 6 month return policy I believe, which is more than most companies. Sorry you feel lied to, have a nice day.

Given exotics are still the “best-in-slot” available for everything except rings and back, how is your current set obsolete? The new ascended tier will be released over time, so you will still get some use out of the gear you have worked hard to obtain before you need to think about upgrading.

I’m in the process of requesting a refund for the gems that I used to buy/upgrade my exotic gear that was done under the impression that there would be no grind.

“Our games aren’t about preparing to have fun, or about grinding for a future fun reward. Our games are designed to be fun from moment to moment.”

The best thing that they can do right now is to downgrade the Ascended gear to Exotic quality and release a new, good-faith update to take players’ minds off of this.

At best – this is going to divide the community and ruin the game. With Christmas coming up, new games are coming out – and if GW2 has this kind of division and controversy, I think it will go the way of the ToR.

While I’m not asking for a refund I do share some of the same feelings. I had been working on the exotic sets that I liked for their skins, but at this point with Ascended gear I’ve got no reason to continue. I’m also annoyed that I’ve now wasted my fine transmutation stones on items that are now obsolete.

At this point I just randomly jump into the game to chat with the guild for a bit before logging out for the night, I’ve only got 2 dungeon runs to complete the monthly but I can’t even work up the urge to play much longer than 10-30 mins. The creation of the Ascended tier and the vertical progression on the horizon has really crushed all the enthusiasm I once had for the game, but on the bright side I’ve finally got time to finish off some of my neglected games on steam and for Planetside 2.

Your post spoke of new tiers, new stats blah blah. They have said no new tiers and releasing ascended gradually through all of next year as a shallow power curve.

Absolutely. I’ll sure give them the gear back. I can buy MF yellows until I get the Ascended gear.

ANET has said that there will be a shallow power curve over the next year. As I’m stuck on Fractal lvl 2, I can’t even compete even if I wanted to.

Besides, any gear progression is not what I expected when I purchased this game, purchased my gems, and began playing. This is a material change that adversely influences my ability to enjoy the game. I don’t want to have to grind to stay ‘in the game’.

Who are you competing with? Since the patch I’ve only done the fractals once and run quite a few dungeons. I don’t even have exotics, but I’m able to play the content I enjoy without worrying that my gear isn’t good enough. That’s what the manifesto is about, it’s not a mandatory grind to get the best gear, because you don’t need it to access the content (with the exception of higher difficulty levels in the fractals).

Besides, any gear progression is not what I expected when I purchased this game, purchased my gems, and began playing. This is a material change that adversely influences my ability to enjoy the game. I don’t want to have to grind to stay ‘in the game’.

I’m sorry that you feel this way, but my only suggestion would be to not grind for ascended if you don’t want to. Other methods of acquiring ascended are in the works, so don’t force yourself to do something you don’t want to do. Play for fun, that’s what I do.

Edit: I just saw your follow-up post about enjoying WvW. I can see the point with being competitively geared there, but at this stage you can probably make do without ascended gear until it’s obtainable via PvP if you really don’t want to grind for it.

Quote where they said that, Apathy.

Which part?

Mike O’Brien:
More generally, I hope we’ve been clear that GW2 is not a game with virtually no stat progression in it like GW1 was. That’s why GW2 shipped with a higher level cap, and with a hard separation between PvE and PvP. In GW1 we never advanced the level cap through four campaigns/expansions. The game design didn’t allow for it. But GW2 was designed without those restrictions, and we’ve always expected that we will someday raise the level cap in GW2.

There’s also this

Hi Idredd,
Thanks for taking the time to post your question.
I will try to be as clear as possible:
We do not intend to deploy another tier/rarity of loot such as Rare>Exotic. However we also do not intend to make promises that can be misinterpreted moving forward.
Ascended Gear will be introduced throughout next year,and accessible through many game play activities rather than just on. -Through infusions and existing Tiers there will be the opportunity to increase stats or abilities on a low power curve through multiple types of gameplay in GW2.
The opportunity to enhance existing tiers of loot will not be through a regular cadence of monthly updates instead it is more likely to come from expansions or very big drops of content.
In retrospect Ascended should have been deployed pre launch and earn able throughout most activities in the game (which is how we are moving forward).

I’m refuting exactly what you said. You said they would add more tiers. They are not. I don’t think adding minor stat bonuses, which my guess is that will be what they are, will affect anyone’s game. But, we don’t know anything yet. I’m not going to sit here and argue with you over a guess on what the future will hold.

There is literally no guessing here.

They literally said that they are going to be raising the level cap and “enhancing” tiers (the same way WoW just “enhances” their purple items).

To be honest, I played GW1 for three years because it was fun and there was always something new to do. I could explore new areas, quest for new weapon skins, and take part in weekend-events.

In GW2 I feel like I do not have the ability to do this because of the stress of keeping up with my gear.

But most importantly, I feel deceived. The money I spent on my exotic sets was done under the premise that it was the equivalent of GW1 armor – and we had no reason to expect any differently.

“Our games aren’t about preparing to have fun, or about grinding for a future fun reward. Our games are designed to be fun from moment to moment.”

Grinding for Ascended items is “grinding for a future fun reward.” They are not fun – especially when nobody else is running your fractal level. Thanks ANet for ruining this game and my investment.

They said they should have had ascended at release. But clearly it wasn’t implemented yet. They go on to say that there will be no new gear for the forseeable future, and that the rest of ascended will take like a year before you can even get the full set.

yes because we should give how many chances to failnet? sorry, as far as im concerned, credibility was lost when they pimped the Hall of Monuments to GW1 players to have some major significance in gw2. it was a PR stunt to try and keep those players playing. and what do they do? instead of getting cool items/armor/weapons related to each title we earn, they just add a numerical value to it.

whys this matter? it means someone that farms for a month can equate what had taken me say 2 years to achieve.

when will the cotton wool fall out of your ears people. anet are amateurs. they brought this all on themselves claiming they would never have a vertical progression model even quoted by devs, also claiming content wouldnt be gated by gear level.

I’m the dense one?

I am literally quoting the Lead Designer, what the hell more do you want?

Your qouting a lead designer that made statements from how long ago? How bout recent events…. how about you go educate yourself on recent happenings, namely the interview just this week which pretty much threw everything you speculated about on page one 100% false. yet you continue to act like thats whats happening?

They very clearly told the community why the change, and that it was meant to be there from the start of the game… they also say that ascended gear will become available over the course of a full year….. then they say there is no planned higher tier gear for the forseeable future.

Yet you insist that its incorrect information, or perhaps you didn’t bother reading what was said this week and continue on with the doomsday posts.
