Well gee, thats the thing that seperates average players to expirienced players.Originally Posted by vinegar
ANYONE with half a brain can beat all the missions, but can everyone also complete all the bonus's? Sure, its possible, but actually requires a certain level of skill and knowledge of the game, because if not everyone would be protector of tyria.
Ive played with alot of bad people in guild wars.
People who use full knights armor, run gimped skills, and just dont have that basic knowledge of the concepts of this game.
Am i an elitist? Yes.
Because i know for a fact that i am a good player.
Over 7,000 Fame, Leader of a Top 100 Guild, 2 Characters with Protector of Tyria, 3 Characters with the Survivor Title and various other titles,
and over 5 million net worth in storage, Fissure Armor on 2 Characters.
See with the titles system, i know have a way to show people that i am better than the average player. Before the titles you had no way to determine whos good or whos not from a glance, no way to say "hey! pick me im better than that warrior over there!" , but now i can walk into a district put up a title and get invited into a competant group, instead of a group filled with w/mo's with knights armor and E/r's with flameburst.
I completely agree that some of the titles dont show skill such as drunkard and treasure hunter , but the whole title system is a good way to create competant pugs. Sure there is 1 or 2 oddballs with titles, but the title system is a great way to judge who actually knows how to play, and who doesnt.

let's look at me here (as this is an example i know well ;)) - when i started playing 10months ago i was a total newbie in online games and such games in general.. after 10months i solo almost all with few henches, have all primary skills with elites unlocked on 3 charas that completed the games (necro, monk, mesmer). i never did any serious pvp so can't be compared to you in any way here.
now let's take a look at my monk - according to what you say you wouldn't let her in. she has no fow armor (just 15k tats and 4 other 15k sets on other charas, but judgin by armor is misleading as, for example, in cantha i'm not getting any 15k set.. as a real girl i'm tacky and don't like the look of any of them.. i really bet most people choosing 15k kurzick ritualist armor for females are men in real life >_<), no pvp title, not even protector of tyria title and she doesn't even have explorer title (well, she has 59% or something to be frank)!! why? i didn't rush. she completed all missions and quests but didn't explore the map. she also did thk, all ring of fire missions, tombs, fow countless times succesfully. i also completed tombs with 3 people only with me being a blood/fire necro (not typical before nerf mm), other necro (ss) and a great warrior and 2 hench healers which i think is something to be proud of.
i think i'm a really competent player in pve in being a healer monk, a blood / mm / ss necro and a mesmer. but i have no way to proove it to you in game as you wouldn't let me in just by seeing my lack of proper title (don't have all bonuses on any chara, have only 70% explorer on necro).
and my point is - there are many people like me. and i'm not arguing with you, just saying that i'd rather see titles which shows also if a person acquired all primary skills, if he/she finished all missions without bonuses (believe me, but for an average player it's really not that easy to get all).. just look at it - getting all necro elites requires not getting into random good mission pug, but you have to come to some hard places to get it and you're really lucky if you have guildies all the time to take you there.
so, well, i hope i kinda showed you my point here ;) the system is good but i think it could use some improving.. i'd much more believe a pve w/mo with "all primary skills title" than the one with "kinda big deal" who got it after farming (drunk/chest/identify titles).. and sorry for such a long rant, i had the need to write a lot, i guess :D
