At least, for me, MacBook Pro 2013
I'll be playing bootcamp way the next few days I think.
UPDATE: WvW and sPVP works fine. Maybe just karka map or laptop needed a restart UPDATE2: It happens to me when I go to the desktop using cmd + tab and then come back to the game. It fixes changing map. (If anyone could try it too that would be helpful)
As many of you are aware of, most if not all of the North American home servers are and have been listed as being at "Very High" capacity for the past day or two. This has opened the flood gates for players to transfer to servers that were previously listed as full. In addition, transfer gem costs have also been reverted back to pre-tournament prices, costing 1800 gems in most cases. There is no incentive to transfer to Medium/High servers because it is now more expensive to do so, the only logical reason why someone would do it now would be to reach a T1/T2 server. I suppose the question lingering in my mind about this is "why?"
I think we can rule out malintent on Anet's part to deliberately disrupt the perceived populational balance because they have recently spoken out about the issue on the official forums. I also doubt that this was unintentional or a slip-up by the developers. But what happens if we put this action side-by-side other changes such as Black Lion key sales and chest loot, where a perceived sale is quickly followed up by the changing of the rules? What if the reason why T1/T2 transfers are now accessible for all via gems is because the very structure of the WvW matchups is about to change?
Anyways, what are your thoughts on the matter? Should players even care, and more importantly, should players that care spend the gems to actually transfer?
Never having to deal with THIS:
@WildStar 8h 8 hours ago
The #WildStar Megaserver maintenance has begun. Downtime is expected to last 12-24 hours. Details here: https://forums.wildstar-online.com/forums/index.php?/topic/115988-megaserver-maintenance-october-15th-2014/
I gave up on Wildstar after a month, but for whatever reason still follow them on Twitter. I see downtime announcements and server maintenance notices seemingly every day. I couldn't imagine paying a sub for a game and not being able to play it as often as Wildstar players can't.
WoW is on the verge of rolling out yet another expansion, and they are hardly ever down. A few hours every Tuesday afternoon and that is it.
Been playing Guild Wars since launch and can't remember there being any periods of not being able to play, let alone entire days. The worst thing that happens is them rolling out an update in the middle of WvW. Even then, all you have to do is relog and you're good to go.
I wish loot sharing wouldn't be the only thing other MMO's copy from GW. That infrastructure is something to be jealous of.
Daily cap. I have been looking forward to reaching this milestone ever since the daily cap was introduced. Well before that happened I already decided to fully complete dailies every single day with a few exceptions here and there. You may wonder why? Well yes I've had too much time on my hands, yet I enjoy(ed) playing through all 3 aspects of the game and for a sense of completion.

I keep seeing posts on how to become rich and people who reply with overly complicated ways to succeed. I see "Super Secret Methods" and "must have a spreadsheet to win" comments. To me, thats a bunch of hogwash. The truth is, it is pretty simple to take 5-10 gold and turn it to over 100, 200 and even 500g in as little as a week. I might ruin some markets in this post but I will give you legit examples and a simple way to not rely on those TPCALCS and such.
Rules I follow.
MINIMUM 20% Profit before fees
Don't buy unless I can flip it quick
24 hours I pull any items that haven't sold IF they aren't near the top of the sell order.
NEVER be afraid to lose money
ALWAYS HAVE ALL OF YOUR MONEY TIED UP!!!! It doesn't make you any money in the bank. If you need to buy something, pull a low performing order.
Recheck your sell/buy orders whenever you can. Honestly, the more you check the more familiar you become with the prices.
Check your sold history often. You'll quickly realize what is making you quick money.
The reason I pull my orders is because I know that I may lose some money up front, but my money is just sitting there, not doing anything. It's tied up and not making me a darn thing. I want to recheck that market, adjust my prices if I can and re-list those items at a price in which they will sell faster or get out of that market all together and move it into one that is moving quicker. This theory can be extended past 24 hours once you have plenty of money and are not trying to build up quick gold. There is also another instance in which I NEVER pull an item...and that is when you control the item outright. But that's a little more advanced than I want to get into.
Lets get this out of the way too...
Calculate your profit.
In other words, you generally don't buy an item unless it has a minimum of 20% difference from the buy orders to the sell orders. There is a price range that has a decent return and is a quick flip that this theory enters into a "grey zone." Example...Sigil of Bloodlust has a buy order for 8g20s and sells for 10g....It's under my 20% idea but still is a quick flip and an instant 30s. I generally jump all over these opportunities. Sigil of Force and Rune of Perplexity are other examples that fall into the "grey area." I've found the "grey area" to generally be on items in the 5-15g range. On expensive items, you generally always want to use the 20% method unless it is a new introduction to the game, such as skins and dyes as those generally can be flipped at less than 20% for a quick gold or two if not more. Be warned though, these markets are ripe for undercutting so don't jump into them thinking this will be easy, it won't.
Many people use websites such as GW2TP, GWSPIDY, etc...and while they do have legit items there and it is a helpful way to "understand" the market better, it is not MY recommended way to play the TP. And here is why... The lists on those websites generally show items on their front pages that take forever to flip. Feasts, Mini Reef Riders, Cleric's Iron Sword of Hydromancy aren't a quick flip. Hell, you might be sitting on those items for a month or more. If you dig deep in those websites, you will find true flippable items, but why waste your time there when you can look at the actual items on the TP in-game.
Start by doing this...
10/12/15 slot bags - easy peasy 18/20 slots don't have that quick of a turnover rate because of the cost
Level 0-1 BLUE Mighty Weapons and Armor - (Stay away from Maces/Torches/etc) Many have profits of 400% and more and are quick flips - Who hasn't made alts
1st POWER Earrings/Amulets/Accessories - Double your money.
Rare Runes and Sigils - People buy in bulk(50-250 at a time) to Toilet them
Superior Sigils and Runes - Buy the ones under 1g but not less than 20s
Eggs - 78c/99c atm (Bulk item - orders of 2500+)
Butter - 1s/1s30c atm (same as Eggs)
Elaborate Totem right now is 31s/40s - that's a healthy profit in bulk and a quick sell.
T1-5 crafting mats - Look at them all, some are no profit, some are little profit and some are a whole lot of profit
That's all I am going to list otherwise I could go on forever...But keep in mind, you HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION to the prices. ALL have ranges they sell in...Rune of Divinity is ALWAYS between 90s and 1g50s. Mesmer Runes are always between 30-60. Thief Runes are always between 8-22.
I hope this helps some people. Flipping isn't as hard as people make it out to be. You don't need a spreadsheet or a website, you just need basic math skills and you'll see profits before you know it. Most important thing you can do is try it and PAY ATTENTION to the price ranges and not be afraid to lose every once in awhile. Good luck all.

Ive been away from GW2 for about 6-8 months and my main/only character is a ranger. I play mainly WvW solo but I like to PVE from time to time. Im trying to find a good balance with the GS and the long bow for my traits but my real question is - whats the word on rangers these days? Or rather what is their best suited role to play in PVE instances or WvW solo roam.
