Hiya Players! With Guild Wars 2’s The Lost Shores coming to a close, now is the perfect time to evaluate the effectiveness of the weekend as a whole. This was a big weekend for Arenanet, coming out of the highly successful Halloween event last month, so lets see how well they did in this weekend event without a holiday to fall back on.
Let’s start with the phase breakdown. Similar to the Halloween events, Arenanet broke down the entire event into separate parts to bring players back into the game on different days and play out the events. I think this was a great idea, but I don’t like the way they did it. The Halloween events told us a time and a place for each phase, but no idea what was going to happen until the day-of. I think this was really well done, since it gave the player more incentive to see what the surprise was going to be. With The Lost Shores, we were told everything that was going to happen which left little to the imagination. I do think they did wise by making the first two events last a few times during the day, and the final event only happening once; But telling us before hand what each of those events were going to have us do was a mistake.

Hiya Players! Hot on the tail of what can only be described as an awesome Halloween event, Arenanet now teases us with The Lost Shores; Described as “a massive one-time world event that will change Tyria forever!” it leaves much to be desired and anticipated. All we know is that it will change Tyria, will […]
