Not yet because the Dragon saga the core game introduced is still going on. But once that’s finished, they’ll need to question where to go from there. And I think that’s the time for GW3 instead of another expansion or another chapter for their Games as service model.

I think it still has major engine issues. Tried to log in for shits-and-gigs a few months ago and it was still choppy even though PC hardware eclipses whatever was top of the line at it’s release. Read more

Everything you said could be reverse and applied to Price, arguably more so. She didn’t need to reply and she could have had thicker skin herself and not got into a back and forth with someone who had a different opinion. Read more

If you’re representing a company even on a personal account, then you should expect to be fired if you can’t maintain professional decorum in a public setting. If she can’t handle reasonable discussion about her article, then she shouldn’t have posted it on Twitter, the very act of which invites discussion. And if she Read more

I think the big thing to establish is that she’s not obligated to reply, which I think we both probably agree on. Read more

There’s some confusion, I think, among some people I’ve seen talk about who want to suggest that a developer needs to always be accessible and willing to endure anything because the “work for gamers” or whatever. That’s certainly not true and I don’t begrudge any developer or worker who pushes back against that.

Except this wasn’t “the slightest breach of etiquette.” She went in *hard* on a member of the community who was in no way shape or form attempting to tell her how to do her job nor talking down to her.

Heather, how is this reconciled with some of Kotaku’s previous posts celebrating developers and community managers fired for twitter posts that were completely separate from their work life. From the article, I first thought that she was in the right but after going back and seeing her full comments it is a bit harder Read more

Does anybody think she was obliged to reply?  If she simply ignored the tweet, would anyone have been up in arms?  I doubt it.  She was criticized for her reply, not her non-reply

I know we’re talking about ‘Video Games’ and the industry isn’t supposed to be quite as typically corporate in its daily operation. But in my decidedly corporate-ass-corporate tech industry, if I were to even have my account under my own name without identifying them, someone did the legwork to find my employer, and Read more

Nuh-uh. A former coworker, whose Twitter never mentioned where he worked and didn’t even list his real name, tweeted that he was surprised that another co-worker has gotten fired. Again, no names were mentioned. And he was shortly fired for that tweet. Read more

She shouldn’t have been fired but the dude she went after was a valued partner with ArenaNet. Regardless of if she was tweeting in an official capacity, that really muddied the waters.

She’s taking about her work for arena net in a public space, period. It doesn’t matter what company, industry or job title, when you talk about your work in a public space, you represent the company that employs you. It’s not like she was taking about football, she was specifically talking about an asset of her Read more
