So are bubblegum salads out of fashion yet or too pink or what? Well either way, I’m more in love with Zylfaer than I probably should be. I also needed a second ranger.
(I realised that despite having many sylvari, I didn’t have a black/white one, nor a pink one. Thus I created two more! Meaning… my roster is now at 24 characters. And it’ll only keep on growing.)

Really sad I haven’t seen this any sooner! Whether you liked Scarlet or hated Scarlet, this is an absolutely fantastic video. Stellar editing and great use of the song; everybody should watch this!

Starting another character on an MMO even though you have eight others you still need to level…
"Battle on the Breachmaker" by Leif Chappelle. "The Nightmare Within" by Maclaine Diemer. Metal. ‘Nuff said.
GW2 just went old school RPG boss style and I’m 100% okay with this. Sweet tunes!
This is what happens when an over-zealous Ascalonian ghost encounters a full regeneration build warrior.
The ugliest fucking sniggering
As it turns out, you can get stuck waypointing to some WPs where they’re being choked by vines. Then this happens. And to be honest it’s terrifying.
I love how me expressing my opinion on the confusing mood silly stuff brings to the game is tantamount to dictating that nobody should enjoy silly stuff ever.
Man I’m sorry you’ve been getting replies like that.
Honestly this is the part of the GW2 community I really don’t like; when anybody expresses dislike for something in the game the instant cat-call of “LET THEM PLAY IT THEIR WAY” goes out and it’s just… really sad? Like, come on guys, we’re mature enough to be able to have neat discussions and differing opinions without people behaving like pissbabies and acting like a negative opinion is the equivalent of saying “This shit sucks and NOBODY SHOULD DO IT”
Which people have never said.
Except about the whole “looking for 10k ap for this dungeon run” nonsense. We all seem to be able to agree that that shit should stop.
The Super Saiyan Charr thing is really funny but I personally hope it doesn’t continue being a thing. It kinda feels like what it would be like if Bobbleheads were permanent.
I also find Chickenado hilarious, but I’m not sure how I feel about all this silly immersion-breaking…
I think you misunderstood my post as a recommendation that people not do these things or an attempt to control how other people have fun. I’m expressing my thoughts on the mood of the game, not telling people to stop. Think you need to take a breath, as you clearly took my expression as a serious demand on the community.
And you didn’t understand that while I love the silly stuff, I’m also conflicted.
Lighten up, it’s a discussion.
I agree with this.
It’s not that I begrudge the people who decide that super saiyan charr hair is awesome, more than it is that I just… don’t see the reason for it. Now of course, I don’t have to use it, but there are people who have decided to use it along with bright pink or bright green colours so that they can run around and stand out and basically make themselves as hard to ignore as physically possible. There’s a level of goofy stupidity a game can get away with before it does start infringing on everybody’s game. When you give somebody the ability to have hair half the size of their charr in NEON blue, pink or green coloursthen I hate to point out that you’re very much infringing on everybody’s experience. Because if neon colours weren’t hard enough to ignore before, they’re going to be impossible to ignore then they are literally the size of a human character poking over the heads of everybody else.
I don’t want to be the party pooper. But we’ve gone from brooms and an outfit resembling Mad King Thorn - not seriously immersion breaking stuff that is a little goofy and definitely fun - to the likes of hair the size of a human being that a charr wouldn’t even be able to realistically grow, never mind would want to use in a lore-based space. We’ve gone from fun goofy to the comedy show over the top “in your face” goofy.
And that’s what I, personally, am conflicted about. Not that people are using it, because you know if it’s put in the game, whatever, their choice.
But that it such a level of goofy, the really stupid over the top in your face sort that gets really obnoxious really quickly, was put in the game at all.
(On a side note, I thought the outfit was okay if not slightly out of place, and although the chickenado borders on forgiveable for me because it is as plausible as a flying broom. But the new male charr ponytail and the saiyan hair… just no.)
