    The stuff they are asking is personal "how should I play X profession" or "how do you play X profession" or things that Anet states every single minute and drives them into everyone's heads that you can find on google.

    Well, I blame the interviewer for even using questions such as those. I would have rather seen an interview from a knowledgeable blogger such as Ravious of Kill Ten Rats.

    Q:asking about counter classes. who can counter who?

    A: It's more like counter abilities. As you play you learn how to fight certain specs. Hes saying for example when fighting eles he picks something that hits hard. Aoes against a thief. Not a rock paper scissor situation as far as classes go though.



    .....Common sense stuff.

    This interviewer is awful. Did he not bother to look into gw2 at all?

    ---------- Post added 2012-03-15 at 01:29 PM ----------

    Pretty much all these questions are people asking how to play their toon. This is priceless.

    It's also very sad.

    The sad thing is that the interviewer actually played in the press beta.

    Really? WOW. Just wow.

    Pathetic. Seriously, I thought there is a limit to incompetence.

    It's clear there was no preparation what so ever to this interview...

    That's all i could write down while we was taking - if anyway wants to add.

    ---------- Post added 2012-03-15 at 01:22 PM ----------

    Now hes talking about his fave spec. He's talking about greatsword warriors.
    This was the only halfway decent question so far. Sad.

    Ok, Pet AI question - thank god >_>.

    Anyway, it's priceless how the guy has no idea what Peter is talking about .

    Rytlock did not approve of being revealed...
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    I wanted Colin to say Hi.

    Ugh, if they were going to use a question about the CE they should have asked about the Elite skill, not waste it on asking about the price.

    lol that was pretty good

    The interview pretty much confirmed a lot of the things people have been theorizing, nothing wrong with that.

    They recorded it too so if anyone missed it'll be up on mmorpg.com later.

    Yeah, disappointing questions no doubt. Jon Peters is the man though.

    Okay here is a very sloppy version of the rest of the interview for those who couldn't watch.

    Q: Why no trading?
    A: We want people to use the mail system everywhere. it's more secure then trading, we dont want people being scammed through trading. figured it wasn't needed since the mail system was polished.

    Q:water combat - can you do most leveling underwater. how much of the game is underwater.
    A:you could do most of your leveling down there, but the volume isn't as vast. you're encouraged to explore and do what you want.

    Q: IS there any way to duel?
    A: No dueling. Maybe later on, but not at release. if you want to duel, hot join an empty server with your friend and fight.

    Q: Why is the CE 150 dollars?
    A: The Rytlock statue is huge, incredibly detailed and expensive.



    Very disappointing interview. But Jon is very cute and his antics with the statue at the end make me girly giggle.

    I don't know why people are crying about the price of CE. Think about it for a second. The game is 60 dollars alone. You get a 112 page book. A soundtrack CD. Bunch of art. Custom Art frame.. And that sick looking statue.

  17. #37
    Most of the questions that were asked were from fans (at least the "how to trait thief" and I think the "counter" questions), so they're not expected to be great. That and if the articles/videos from the past beta event have taught us anything, it's that media are generally pretty bad at actually playing the game :P

    I cant stop laughing from his kid like personality , when he introduce the Rytlock statue in the end of the show<< look on his eyes/mouth , rawrrr>> lolll

    It seems ppl have the energy to whine for a game , for not beeing exactly like their <<main>> game , while it dont have a SUB , and they dont have the courage to whine at their Game Master for slacking and producing few PvE content ...

    I do admit, seeing that big Rytlock statue makes me want to shell out $150 for it (even though I know I can't really afford it), but then I just refer myself to the following link, and continue being realistic:

    Nothing makes me rage more than watching these skill clickers and "1" spammers playing the beta. Total facepalm.
