Guild page[edit]

Hi, I moved your guild page to Guild:Existence Clan because the guild name must match the in-game name. This includes capitalization. Could you resume your edits there please? Thank you. :) --User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 04:06, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh I'm sorry, thank you Colonel Hawk 04:07, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

No problem. Just making sure you know. If you need any help, don't hesitate to ask. :) --User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 04:10, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Chasing Zenmai[edit]

How about allowing players with EotN and Factions to access this? The only reason it was only for NF people was because they were the only ones with Heroes. Same goes with Olias. Colonel Hawk 22:15, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

There is no logical reason to change this. People were rewarded for having both Factions and Prophecies while buying Nightfall, if you remove this advantage with subsequent releases of Expansions then it becomes rather pointless. Same way you are rewarded for buying collectors edition or preordering etc. Biz 14:34, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
The logical reason for changing this is that Zenmai (and Olias) have absolutely nothing to do with Nightfall, and everything to do with the ability to have, own or use heroes. Colonel Hawk 23:19, 26 January 2009 (UTC) ability which was introduced in (guess what?) Nightfall. This is like complaining that people who own Prophecies and Nightfall ought to be able to use sins and ritualists. Vili User talk:Vili 23:52, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
INTRODUCED in Nightfall. Not limited to.This is nothing like comparing the professions. Colonel Hawk 05:48, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
It is exactly like comparing the added professions. The only way you get heroes is to own either Nightfall or Eye of the North. Just as the only way you get Ritualists or Assassins is to own Factions, and you get Dervishes and Paragons if you own Nightfall. If you want these heroes, buy the campaigns just like if you want those professions, buy the appropriate campaign. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 05:53, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
(EC) Sure it is. You want content which is restricted to another campaign. Why is it restricted? Because it means more money in ANet's pocket. You may see it as unfair, but it makes zero sense from a marketing perspective to give away content for free if it does not also entice people towards a purchase. Vili User talk:Vili 05:55, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Their primary product they're trying to sell is EotN, if allowing these heroes with it, it may encourage people to buy the product that they're pushing. Colonel Hawk 16:52, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Why do you consider the primary product EotN? Just because it's the newest, doesn't mean the Anet is any less interested in getting people to purchase the other campaigns. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 17:02, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
The idea here is that people actually Buy expansions/campaigns when they are released in order to achieve this you keep some content exclusive to certain product so people will never get it unless they pay for it. Any action that would undermine this is bad for economy as it can lead to people choosing to wait instead of paying. Its something like making Halo/GoW games for PC, now people know that after about a year they will still get to play the games on their PCs and get some added content for free with out ever needing to buy Xbox/360.

Nightfall is a great game, worth its own price a few times over. If Zenmai and Olias are incentive enough for some ppl to buy NF and play it, then it's worth it. -- Alaris_sig Alaris 17:56, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Not to mention it gives you access to most of the best skills in the game. Vili User talk:Vili 03:34, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
