Chekhov's Gun : GW2

"One must not put a loaded rifle on the stage if no one is thinking of firing it."  

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

Or in MMO terms, don't put in a ground-mounted cannon/laser-destructor/harpoon-gun, allow me operate, aim and fire it then give it nothing to hit but dirt. I'm looking at you, Warhammer Online.

If you're going to do it, do it like this.

(And yes, I did install FRAPS today and yes, I am learning how to use the YouTube account I've been neglecting for three years. So sue me).


  1. Love it! Where is that located?

  2. so using fraps wont get your account banned? I was under the impression that video capture was like third party software or something...

    And your aim is destrolicious!

  3. @Zonian It's in Diessa Plateau near Redreave mill.

    @Siadia I certainly hope not! Pretty confident that no MMO companies object to FRAPS or similar video-recording. If anything, they usually encourage it for the publicity. If there's an in-game recorder I'd be happy to use that but I couldn't find one.

    1. ohh good! Because I get kinda jumpy about using that kind of stuff. I have to get that set up myself when I get my 4core rig.
