Well, that was outrageous. In case you don’t know, Arenanet, the developer of Guild Wars 2, very recently fired Jessica Price and Peter Fries. Essentially because Price, who was NOT a community manager or PR person decided she didn’t like some dude telling her how to do her job better and Fries for having the GALL to defend her. https://www.pcgamer.com/amp/guild-wars-2-writers-fired-following-heated-twitter-exchange-with-streamer/?__twitter_impression=true
This response from Arenanet, to throw two employees under the bus because they’re apparently on the clock 24/7, and to immediately give in to the hurt feelings of reddit is straight up embarrassing and shameful. They couldn’t even wait a few days to get a sense of the actual mood.
And I’ve already seen a few comments along the lines of “We have a hand on their throat and we can squeeze whenever” which really goes to show the disastrous effect this will likely have.
