First up this weekend are two pieces of impossibly cute concept art from Jeffufu over on DeviantArt. Rather than link the two, I thought it best to simply link his entire album (the two newest being at the top). If one doesn't make it as your desktop wallpaper within a few minutes, you can't be human. Tea Party is still my favourite.
Next on the list is a small rumbling from ArenaNet that they are looking into some changes to the field of view. I'm still struggling to find an issue with what we currently have and I must stress, I am very particular about my field of view requirements. First person shooters brought over from console (Bioshock 2, RAGE et al) really do suffer and see me get a quick fix as soon as possible otherwise I cannot play, but I really don't understand the Guild Wars 2 issue.
If you're like me and use the Trading Post, you'll be pleased to know the Android Trading Post app has been updated. Hurrah!
Peter Fries (pronounced Freeze!) one of ArenaNet's lead writers posted this adorable Quaggan. Best. Race. Ever.
This was posted a couple of days ago on the official forums, but there's every chance you might have missed it based on the fact they move so quickly. Although a brief comment from Robert Hrouda, it's clear that ArenaNet are still unhappy with the dungeon loot system and are intending to do something about it.
Reddit has a great thread discussing the Downed State in PvP. I'm at times undecided on it, but those feelings usually arise when I've fighting two versus one (knowing I can win) only to lose as a result of an inability to finish the downed player. Those moments are infuriating but on the other, rallying is absolutely wonderful. What I would like is an ability to kill myself while downed simply because many skilled tournament teams don't finish you (if there's no prospect of you rallying) but also don't let you revive, thus leaving you in limbo until your health painfully decreases.
Still with Reddit, have you all noticed less gold mail spam? I must say I certainly have, which could be a coincidence or a result based on ArenaNet's actions. Personally I think a little of both as I still received one this morning which is more a nuisance than anything else.
Lastly, Hunters Insight has a wonderful article all about bots. I must be fortunate, but I've only see one bot in all my time of playing Guild Wars 2 and only once encountered a player cheating openly (speed hacking in World versus World). However, I do know that some servers are absolute rife with them which makes the play experience for everyone entirely unpleasant.
