create defensive maps in hall of heroes and you get a defensive meta.

thats how its always been.

2/3 of the maps in HOH can essentially be won (if you're the holding team) by holding the central altar with a defensive build.

And relic runs just require good running and body blocking/snares.

In other words, right now holding doesn't really require the ability to kill anything.

It's somewhat of a quandary - due to the progression setup they need to ensure that a halls game occurs on a regular basis so that people don't get held up waiting to enter HoH, which means that they can't have a straight-up elimination gametype because that has no upper bound on the duration. Yet that means that they're almost constantly going for some form of defensive gametype.

Yes/No. The big problem is that lack of teams makes it impossible for getting to halls by playing all maps. With luck, you can skip from UW on weekdays. Hence, you will see this retarded builds being played. You get a different meta if people are playing to farm fame without bothering abt halls. Now everyone knows you will end up in halls on your 2nd or 3rd or 4th win so, why not play lame like that. However, if you add death penalty in those, it may be a different story.

Also, Fear Me spam is back with full force with no hex-pressure teams playing in hA.

the fear me spam IWAY is rather weak though. I don't see it replacing Thumpers and N/Rts

Youve seen a balanced!!

Where, who, what...??

Try to put a balanced together and a load of ppl wont even bother rerolling (the vast majority of todays mid-ranked players got there through gimmick builds and dont even know what balanced is)...the fast entry BOTM means they can get more airtime for theyre 2 hours of nightime playing slot.

I don't get why people call it EoE Bomb, no one is saccing health.

its Tele-Eles plain and simple. You play it exactly like the old Starburst E/A build.

Yet people call it EoE bomb.

which is something i refuse to do. balanced is about the only thing which isn't a gimmick these days. I played the new "eoe bomb" about 3times before it became a gimmick then stopped and went back to balanced.

btw wat happened to paraspike, paraway and zergway?

this game is getting really boring really fast. Well Ha was dieing but at least I could have a good laugh every other match now its just "wait for hall skip while still in UW, 2 team members have already left since 2 hours has past".

When you nerf good pug friendly builds, these kinds of crap eventually come out.

The real issue, which I believe, ANET has realized that there is no convergence on the tactics and skills employed in different arenas. Having different arenas that require vastly different tactics and skillbars, Guildwars moved to Buildwars as more and more chapters released. An idea that was innovative in the beginning has simply backfired now.

Nowadays, you can almost predict who you are going to face in UW if you notice who is going in from id1. Yep, it is that sad <lol>. In iWay-days, you still had some people to beat, now, there is almost none unless you are ready to wait for 10 minutes after each match.

when you nerf bat swing everything to hell and don't let the meta correct and evolve itself, you get the 1,2 build garbage we have now.
