Tomorrow, January 17th, systems designer Matt Witter, game designer Jonathan Sharp, and lead content designer Mike Zadorojny will be hosting a livestream chat on Twitch to discuss the game's design as well as chat about various topics present in the community. The stream begins at noon PST and, after a short break, will continue at 2 pm for a Q&A session based on questions submitted on the official forums. These developers play a big role in the design and development of the game, so you definitely are going to want to tune in to hear the insight they have to offer.

Keep in mind they haven't posted the actual thread that they'll be using to pull questions from yet, but we'll keep an eye out and update you all when it's up.

They seem to have taken the whole "more transparency" rather seriously, I think I've seen more posts and info splurges in the last two weeks than I have since release. This is particularly true for WvW where the two head designers have posted up a storm of sorts, heh.

A lot of PR for one week.  Sounds like they're trying to fire up interest in the game now that the honeymoon period is over.
It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

This, will anybody be creating a transcript?  Twitch is down because we probably over-stretched their website.

They eluded to a bunch of class balancing and making sure all traits/skills work as advertised.  Chap mentioned that they want to bring up the weapons that "suck" to the level of the weapons that work really well.  He also talked about bringing more "viable builds" to classes that only have 2-3 so that they can be on par with the classes that have 5-6 viable builds.

10 seconds on the community shredding guesting feature. I really hope they touch on this more in part 2. There's a lot of concerned people out there,

What is there to say?
They have already said what they can say.

2 servers per day. No cross-region guesting because of technical limitations.

What should they do? Simply repeat that?
Lie and give people the answer they want to hear?

So 2 minutes Sharp talking about stuff that he ALREADY wrote a forum post about, while 18 minutes were spent on useless PVE stuff? * this shit. Pve is already in a good place and got SEVERAL HUGE PATCHES. They need to concentrate on PVP 110%. RIGHT. NOW.

Why should they focus everything on a part of the game that most of the populations probably don't use?

Recognise the issue? Promise to revisit it based on community feedback?, Give more technical clarity(we tried this and this but.. etc etc ) or heaven forbid apologise. we're really sorry we couldnt get it to work.. Tons if stuff. Anything but sweep it under the carpet.

See my post about PR.  Guess the pressure's on to get people to pay attention to the Jan update.

So, instead of actually answer question they should more or less repeat what they have already answered but with other words?

You seems to think that they simply decided to screw the community and don't add cross-region guesting, instead of it actually being technical issues that stops them from doing it.

Going into too much technical information could also be quite dangerous, since it could give hackers a rather clear view of how their servers are built, which could make possible attacks much easier.

What if it isn't used because of its current state? What if a lot more people would use it if it DID have improvements? I personally have no idea about its state in GW2 because I don't PvP in an MMO.
