A bunch of ArenaNet’s dev team jumped on Reddit to take part in an AMAA (Ask Me Almost Anything) session in the past day. The level of response was good, with hundred of questions asked a decent amount answered. The focus is quite understandably on development issues rather than gameplay or community stuff. That said, there’s some pretty fascinating insights into a range of things, including:
- plans for an FOV slider in GW2
- how ArenaNet keep server downtime to a minimum
- the biggest defects in the game and what’s restricting the devs from remedying them
- GW2 programming methodologies, standards and practices etc
That’s just the tip of the iceberg so have a read-through for yourself – there’s lots of gold in there.
