[Dev Update]GW:EN Skills in the ATS – 17 August 2007
Players have expressed a concern about whether Guild Wars: Eye of the North skills that they obtain during the Sneak Peek Weekend will be functional in the Automated Tournament System. The designers will be adding code that will disable the use of all GW:EN skills within the ATS prior to release of the game.
The critical thing for players to know is that the GW:EN skills can still be equipped on a skill bar. The skills will appear to be functional; they will not be greyed-out or in any other way look as if they are non-functioning skills. That will only become clear if a player attempts to use a GW:EN skill in an ATS match and find that the skill does not work.
Please be aware of this situation, and relay the information to your guild mates and to other players: Do not take GW:EN skills into the ATS, for they will not function.
