Hello, I just came back from the "Webhallen" Stockholm meetup where they had invited Jeff Grubb (Lore and Continuity designer), Aaron Coberly (Lead character artist) and one of the community managers (He never told me his name >.<) where they had a Q and A, giveaways, GW2 demo etc. and I had a chat with Jeff Grubb and the community manager (seperatly). Here are roughly what was said. NOTE: Not exactly what was said and removed some unimportant conversation.
Me and CM about Hunger Royale
Me: Will the Hunger Royale come back as a reaccuring event or even an official pvp map?
CM: We'll definitely have it back as an event.
Me: So nothing permanent, just as an event from time to time?
Me and CM about downed state in pvp
Me: So, have you guys at ArenaNet discussed the downed state in pvp? I think it's really annoying when you're trying to finish someone and their allies keep stunning you and stuff.
CM: Yes we have. Did you see the 5 devs doing sPvP at Gamescom last year?
Me: I'm not sure, I might have seen a game or two.
CM: Well basically sPvP is all they do and they all think that the downed state should remain in sPvP.
Me and Jeff about the world map
Me: Surely you saw the leaked Tyria world map that was leaked on Reddit a while ago?
Jeff: I saw that, and it made me laugh.
Me: Could you explain it? It's a bit weird since some of the events on the map don't add up to the timeline of Guild Wars.
Jeff: Well, the map is actually part of a bigger project, and that isn't actually how you see it in-game.
Me: Are you trying to tell me that the map changes as time changes while you're looking at it?
Jeff: I won't answer that.
