Re: Official Guild Wars 2 Screen Shot Thread....

Lots of eye-candy. Neat.

What the hell is with the full-screen bloom effect though? Hate it......

I turn off Depth Blur all the time, and it is still off.. I dont know any other settings to turn of blur. Everything is max settings. Only Render Sampling is Native.

I tried setting Render Sampling to Super, and it makes the game run like dog shit. Plus, it didn't look any better, at least in my eyes.

So Native it is.

the stuff on the right side OWNS.

Some times that green wall.... shoots fire ball.. and there is nothing you could do about it. LMAO.

I was questing over in Kessex Hills last night. There are some really amazing areas over there to see.

There's an area that's overrun with Centaurs where you can go down below their hidout.

It was all foggy and smokey down below and kind of hard to see what you were attacking. It was so cool to experience. It's the little things like that, that make this game amazing.

The difference between WoW and GW2:

Smoke bomb:

in WoW smokebomb is an area where you can't be targeted, because you are supposed to pretend that your character can't see in there

in GW2 smokebomb is actually in game smoke, where you as a player have trouble seeing WTF is going on

immersive greatness

in WvWvW you will get into conflicts where wind and snow is blowing, smokebombs going off, and you are like holy shit i can't see WTF is going on

its great... its war baby! chaos!

bashing someones brains in in the smoke and they dont know wtf is going on lol

One can always say that about technology. Or you can wait till prices drop more on HD 6870's and Crossfire it.

Fought a dragon a few minutes ago, The Shatterer. Heard some people talking about how cool it was over general so I decided to pop in. SICK looking dragon. Really simple fight, and decent loot.

I can't wait to see those dragons and places by myself !

I don't recall seeing so much fullscreen bloom effect. Maybe this is added at the time the screenshot is taken ?

Nope. All in game. I have it enabled, I actually like the effect.

Some people don't care for it though.

haha, man, I've been sitting in Plains of Ashford since launch as I want to clear the whole zone before I leave, but it's very enticing to just go out there and explore these beautiful areas you guys are posting.

I am playing with everything maxed out except that one setting is on Native. The game runs very smooth except when I take part in a event. Then it crawls and is hard to do much, anyone else encountering this??? I should not be having this problem with my specs.

I've got the same processor running at 4.0ghz, 16gb ram, and a 560ti. During an event with 20-30 people I'll get a stutter here and there, but by no means does my system come to a "crawl". I did load those 306 beta drivers the other day and I saw worse performance. I went back to the 304 drivers.

Everything is on MAX except shadows and reflections.

With Vsync on, the game pretty much sits at 60fps all day. During events and lots of action, fps drops to inbetween 40s and 50s.
