I do not know if this is the right place to ask this, but it is my only idea. What means "localization support" ? Magnum 10:15, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Gj anet you missed the most important skill SHOCKWAVE.
This is exactly why I didn't buy gw2 it took you already months for this update, they simply don't care about their community and this is a fine example of why they don't play their own game, they know nothing about it! Overcast? Hex enchant on ally? Seems like you are bringing gw2 pve skills into gw1, leave gw1 alone if you can't do anything usefull fucking retards. 126.96.36.199 10:04, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
- Shockwave is fine, if it gets nerfed it will be outplayed by Star Burst. But even if, it is not the most important skill they forgot, that honor goes to Icy Shackles. Da Mystic Reaper 18:01, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
Stealth or Unknown updates
Was there any info to the two past updates (between 10/23 - 10/30 & 11/08)? Just curious is all.MystiLefemEle 09:24, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

According to GuildWars Twitter, current update has fixed the login issues. Maybe there were some other fixes as well, so if somebody knows the details, could it be possible to add them here or publish on main feedback page? --Slavic 15:57, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

9th August 2017
It seems there was an undocumented update today - my client downloaded files and restarted when I tried to open the game (and a few chats in game confirmed it's not just me). No idea what though. Loggy (talk) 22:26, 9 August 2017 (UTC)
- Yep, Stephane created a page for us: Feedback:Game updates/20170809. Just a maintenance patch. G R E E N E R 01:03, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
- While I'm not an ArenaNet official, I think this was due to the recent European datacenter power failure and the failure to synchronize with the other datacenters during that time. - Infinite - talk 06:55, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
account creation and bots
Dear Arenanet Staff,
I am writing because I want to talk about some of the issues we players have been experiencing for a few years now. The game is overrun with bots. Everyone knows this. People bot in PvE, which inflates the market like crazy, and people bot in PvP, which makes it unplayable, especially because there are far fewer PvPers than PvEers. You basically can't play Random Arenas after about 9PM EST until the morning, and during the afternoon. And sometimes people will fire up their vampiric alt loaders (which are also scripted to auto-report any real players in the team) even earlier. No to mention people bringing in Interrupt bots, and I also also caught wind of "cancel bots," which I assume is for a monk.
This is a problem. People are openly cheating, making names like "Zkey Farmer XI," or "Bot Exe," and it completely devalues the efforts of honest players. I will admit that I have used a third-party program to pop pcons automatically in the past, but I don't do that any more. At this state of the game, people are not expected to pay for consets, when they would drop money for them in the past. I remember a number of months where all of my money would go into pcons and consets. I had no skill points on any of my characters because I was constantly crafting them myself. And then I look over at another player who said he has 250 armbraces, and he has admitted that he bots. How can I be expected to share the same responsibility to provide for people in need when there are people who are printing money?
Botting has also effectively removed certain parts of the game. For example, JQ and Codex arena are basically unplayable. It is true that this might be a function of players' interests shifting away from these styles of gameplay.
I do appreciate the banwaves that occurred last year. But, I heard that they were only centered around PvP bots, not PvE. Why is this? Because PvP players complain more?
People have made the argument that "if people didn't bot there would be nothing for high end players to buy," and that "people would run out of pcons." This is just false if you took an Economics 101 course: supply and demand. If people want pcons, they will pay top dollar, and people will go out and farm them. If they want rare items, people will go out and work hard to farm chests to get those rare drops.
I understand that as a company you have shifted your focus to Guild Wars 2. But there is still a small but strong community of players that need a police force. Please at least consider developing a system for heavily restricting account creation (since most accounts that are being created are not new players to the game but bots), and an automatic 3-day warning for activity that resembles something automated. A 3-day warning will show players that they will not be banned, but that they have to stop cheating. Without that, it is the wild west, and it becomes a game of the richest man (or woman!) winning.
