it is possible to outplay people that use macros.
Yes I agree people that macro are ridiculous and they don't necessarily NEED to macro to accomplish what they want. However if you have a problem that you can't get over it and it's causing you to not have fun, good luck. Every game has their pros and cons. If there was no such thing as macro here I'm sure the next big thing being cried about is ani-canceling.
I think management is the hugest factor into why the game is in "dying" status for the past 6 years. The communication between management and consumers is very very poor. The updates needing to be made are not being acknowledged. Glitches that have existed since practically the beginning. Management goes against their own in-game policy when it comes to banning and suspending frequently. Very little play for the PVE aspects and the PVP is limited due bind times. When the majority play solely for the pvp, because what other games offer very very similar pvp as to this game.
We're merely bystanders arguing that the dress is blue not gold when there are bigger problems in the equation aka; global warming.
