    What a horrible burden Oscuro has had to bear. In a world filled with suffering, it warms my heart to know that at least one staff member is able to...

    A global cooldown (GCD) is not the same thing as an individual skill cooldown. Where CDs prevent skill overlap by ensuring that you can't just spam...

    Truth. The only reason players put up with it in this game is that there is no "winning", so you can't really call it pay-to-win.

    I don't think that makes me tough to please! 2.5s GCD is really long. WoW had a 1.5s GCD which could be reduced to 1s, last I checked. GW2 doesn't...

    Yeah, I can't get too heavy into the raids in GW2. It's the non-trinity design. It feels like they removed tanking and healing roles and replaced...

    I've been playing GW2 off and on since their first expansion back in 2015. Anyone else here play it? It's a bit of an odd animal. I don't think...

    I'll claim partial responsibility on rapid fire, but they actually made it better in several ways. So, I can't complain!

    But don't you ever call it Pay-To-Win. There is no win. There is only pay.
