Yes, Guild Wars 2 developer Chris Whiteside took the extremely unusual step of engaging his public directly yesterday, running an Ask Me Anything interview on Reddit. At a time when feelings are running pretty high in the Guild Wars community, it was a bold move. But how did the GW2 community react? Find out more…
- Dulfy has an excellent summary of the questions raised and answers given
- Demajen was impressed with Mr Whiteside’s move, but far less so with the community and its reaction – “I feel sorry for Chris Whiteside. He stood up, put his name to some mistakes, took responsibility. And then a horde of nameless, faceless individuals went off on one at him.”
- Entombed was left split between being impressed and dismayed – ” I’m torn between two very different impressions of ArenaNet. They seem to design some things very well, and are extremely well thought-out, other times I’m just left scratching my head.”
- And Optimus Maleficus goes point-by-point through the AMA, generally finding it comprehensive and impressive – “Explicitly, Chris says they do not intend to introduce a new tier of loot above Ascended.”
Did you read the AMA? What was your impression?
