As Arenanet increases testing and plans beta events, the strain on their community managers must be taking a toll. I can’t imagine how busy they are going to be in the weeks just before launch and the long haul of maintaining a hit game.
Thus the addition of new talent at Arenanet in that regard. Rubi Bayer has left Massively, and indeed GuildCast, for a job at Arenanet. I’m not familiar with Aidan Taylor and Melanie Corolleur, but they appear to have been announced on Facebook a few days ago as the European counterparts to the team.
They’re going to need the help once they start announcing more controversial features. The cash shop is just plain not going to be received well by the community. I don’t know what is in it, I don’t know what the community will react badly to, but I do assume there is going to be rage. Lots and lots of rage.
You need even-tempered souls to deal with gamers. We can act like the most ill-behaved children and often are ill-behaved children. Good luck to Arenanet in regards to that.
It seems clear that Guild Wars 2 will be a big hit, and I had wondered if Regina, Martin, and Stephane would need help. Their opinion seems to be in the affirmative.
More community managers only means good things for the Guild Wars 2 community. Grats to all.
