    Blade and Soul

    I only bring B&S up because it's a NCsoft game. How is HoT? I've heard a lot of good and a lot of bad.

    Blade and Soul

    Blade and Soul just entered beta not too long ago and was wondering if anyone here was going to play it? It's going with the f2p model.

    So MSE is gone...

    Thanks Tarun, Wasn't sure if I needed another layer of protection with Windows 10. Do you think a third party firewall is needed seeing as how many privacy issues there are with Windows 10?

    So MSE is gone...

    They seem to have replaced it with Windows defender and the lack of user control with defender kind of irritates me. I really liked MSE for this along with its reliability and clean look. What would be the next best AV now? I already have a full license with Malwarebytes.

    I could go into a text wall of detail but I'll keep it short. Dungeons are abandoned and broken due to Anet axing their dungeon team and using programming contractors. Enemy A.I. is very clunky in some areas of the game (especially dungeons) and the reward system becomes more dull and unforgiving over time. There's also the living story which was poorly done; Anet chose quantity over quality. I quit GW2 around February of 2014 and came back about 2 months ago only to find them selling the living story for about 1600 gems. As a returning player I felt punished for leaving in the first place instead of being welcomed back. I also found that nothing really changed in a major way during the 15 months I was gone except for more skins in the Black Lion Casino and a decent map (Silverwastes) which I farmed to death. I must have opened 3000 champ bags and got 2 exotics worth 1-2g and it wasn't until I got a single random champs bag somewhere else that I scored an exotic worth 60-70g. The fact that Anet is giving new players the base game for free with HoT kind of felt like a big screw you to the current player base as well. As for WvW I gave it a serious amount of playtime when it first came out but found I didn't enjoy it due to the zerg mentality of it. PvP feels unrewarding and lacking in game types(playing it made me miss Jade Quarry from GW1). There are other things I didn't like but I'll leave you with this for now. If you want to know more just ask.

    I sort of stopped playing GW2 because I don't agree with the direction Anet has taken with the game.

    Hey Tarun and LS, probably don't remember me but I probably have old posts buried in here somewhere. I use to play the original GWs and you helped me a few times on GWG Tarun. Btw thx for that. I joined the steam group and you can find me playing all sorts of games on steam. Current Games Final Fantasy 14(Cactuar server). Don't got this one on steam. Civ 5 Town of Salem Killing Floor 2 Talos Principle The witcher 3 ...and a lot more lol
  8. Well I feel retarded, guess its time to update my eye prescription.
  9. I did download it from that site and it says its only usable with a x86 processor
  10. This is quite frustrating. I can only download the Pro version of Outpost because the free firewall says it is only available on Windows 7 x86 when I try to install it. So it seems the free version is not available to x32 and x64 users. I already don't trust this company, they make you donwload it from download.net in the first place. The security suite stops working after a few days as well and it prompts you to buy it.

    Hello

    Ah yes ty. I couldn't find the free download option on their website for some reason before. I'll post a hijackthis log soon.

    Hello

    I checked Outposts site but it doesnt look like they have a free version. They have internet security suite but its downloaded from c.net which is a place I never downlaod from due to them placing that startnow malware crap. Currently using the windows firewall but if you have know a really good free firewall that would be awesome because money is tight atm. I downloaded the only one they had and it stopped working right after I restarted my computer.

    Hello

    Sup, My name is Aaron and I hail from California. I am a GW Guru patron and recently I have been having some problems, the biggest one being my computers CPU hitting 100% capacity with just GW running while its a DC 2.7 Pentium 4. This immediately brought me to the conclusion that it was malware and so embarked on a crusade to rid my computer of it. Norton, being my primary firewall, AV and AS, couldn't detect anything even while running in safe mode. This was very frustrating because it meant I now had to search for a suitable solution on the internet. Right after Norton had failed to do what it was meant to do I remembered a certain Guru mod who would help people often in the tech part of the forum and that he always gave people links to an anti-malware toolkit. Luckily I remembered the name of the webiste. Soon after downloading the anti-malware I installed many of the programs beginning with malwarebytes. It immediaty detected a virus and sent it to digital oblivion. Soon after, I downloaded the anti-spyware tools and found a number of threats, one being whitesmoke which I have heard of many times and I apprently had 13 of them :'( . Thats what I get for downloading torrents and using norton. In all I had about 50 threats that were detected and stomped out. Now my pc runs like the day I bought it. +10 internet points to Tarun and his team for this awesome tookit.
