Yeah just for clarity, someone asked about balancing various under-used weapons and said something about "dual pistol mesmer" as an example, I figured that's what he calls off-hand pistol and answered using the same verbiage asked. I've found travelling abroad, as well as across the fan base everyone uses different terms for part of the game, people still ask me all the time about our quest system for example, it's easier to just respond with the terms they use so they understand.
I'm well aware mesmers can't dual-wield pistols, we've only been working on it for 6 years now
If there was double-pistols, my Mesmer would whoop you in PvP with them though, just sayin.
As for some of the other questions, I'm sorry we can't provide the exact details folks want to know on every single question, but on many of them we simply haven't decided yet what we're going to do, or we're currently working on it but may massively change direction due to the outcome of play tests and don't want to get locked into one plan/expectation. If we say literally anything, we're held to it as the law forever, so we have to try and be very careful not to promise anything. As an example, someone asked about commander book and I mentioned we'd love to have it get more functionality, a day later I read on the forums we're in the middle of making commander book better, which we aren't working on yet. It's really tough, sort of a no-win situation but we do our best and will keep delivering content every month that hopefully, eventually makes most folks happy with what they get.
Off to play to my dual-pistol warrior!
Well Colin, it certainly doesn't help when interview's questions are so unclear. I don't know on whose side it was that it became so chaotic and pretty much "take a guess at my question" but in many cases it ends up creating more further questions. It may also cause uneeded confusion due to unclear nature of questions-answers relation in this "interview".
On a side note, what kind of an interview it is with questions being only half asked?
give engies their own interesting Elite skills.
