Single Status Update
World versus World in Guild Wars 2 is fun again. I've played a little over an hour a night for the last 2 nights and I haven't had that much fun in WvW since I was power leveling my second character almost 3 years ago. I think I'll upload a video later tomorrow. The zerg rushes are real. I saved a couple videos but the one I really wanted didn't save for some reason. We had a full on battle of 3 armies, so epic.

That screams pve commander to me. They can't attack an object like it's a world boss. 😑 they need tactics and correct seige. That guy was just in it for the commander pips and participation meter. It's still rewarding for the pips but serves no purpose in progressing the server score.
I was thinking I'd be able to kick pvp to the curb and enjoy only wvw for competitive fun but wvw in these zergs completely feels like a different game mode since I haven't seen a single dual anywhere and not a single finisher is ever used anymore because of all the condi spikes melting even downed players before a finisher can get off.
I mean yeah it is a completely different game mode, but with all the condi spam it's nothing like what wvw used to be. 2 years ago it felt like large scale pvp with seige weapons and buildings but now it's a condi spam boon fest. If not for guardians in the zerg providing mass stability everyone would be cc'd into total knockdown status while condis melt all the hp away. I couldn't imagine playing this during the epidemic meta.
I got into an outnumbered map last night and racked up pips until people on team chat pleaded to fill it. 8 pips a tick, I finished up bronze and got a quarter of the way through silver T1. You get 4 reward track boosters per chest on that one. I'm going to make it all the way through this week hopefully to see how good the reward track boosters are at diamond. I'll probably spend all Wednesday WvWing.
