(Q:) Will we ever be able to go to Cantha?
(A:) (Paraphrasing) Cantha is definitely not cut from the game, you will just have to wait and see. ;)
(Q:) Will we be getting more dungeons?
(A:) We will be continuing to work on our dungeons.
(Q:) (Follow-up) Old ones...or new ones?
(A:) Both! ;)
(Q:) Will we ever see anything like raiding?
(A:) Our answer to raiding may very well be in the works!
(Q:) Is there anything being done to get people to want to spend time in their respective capital cities?
(A:) Yes.
(Q:) How is the LFG coming along?
(A:) Coming along great. We're sorry for not putting it in sooner, but there aren't enough hours in the day.
(Q:) (In whisper) Can you say anything at all about raid style content?
(A:) It is something I am very excited about and will be unique to GW2

Dammit Janet!
As I've said before, Cantha is kind of my weak spot so if it ends up coming back as part of an expansion, there's a very good chance that I'll simply force myself to forget how disappointed I've been with GW2 and buy the expansion: I am still too much of a fanboy to listen to reason when it comes to Cantha.

Some question that weren't posted are about new weapons and classes he had no comment on that and the World bosses are being reworked and maybe weapons dyes.

What happened only now we get graced with his presence? He said he would do this often after Nov 17 AmA. How long ago was that?


Sorry Dont care - Snowcrash should go back to where he came from and stop communicating. I had enough of him and his diatribe the first time.


I find it hilarious that they start this “communication” only because of new releases on the horizon and can cause a huge loss of players.


Of course once the danger has passed he will disappear and we will get crappy bugged content again, only to reappear when ESO goes live. Then for Wildstar........


Give it up already Snowcrash.

Yes
I am jaded to this PR Hype Train crap. Please stay with the game, Please dont go here is what we have.... ,pretty please.

It truly saddens me to think that the only time THEY CARE and wish a dialogue is when players are leaving the game because of issues and that there is significant competition on the horizon starting shortly.

Were we not good enough before? but now the money train is slowing(and squeezing isnt working) time to trott out the PR again.
Really really saddens me to see that this is what has become of them.

Why do people gobble this crap up? so nice to talk to you chris - If he cared at all he would have been doing this all the time or other staff on a rotation. There is a reason he did this now. Question Motivation

Ah, that is actually some interesting information.

Lets not take it as absolute proof though, shall we? It is after all not an official source until ArenaNet says so, so it might very much be a  (former?) dev talking about stuff without actually having real information about it.

Would be great if they would start to deliver instead of babbling about making the game more awesome over and over again.

He is the former lead producer but after luanch he became the Studio  Design Director he still works at Arenanet.

Yay!   I'm Victoria Stormwinds in the pictures, on the left hand side.   :)

That was really nice of him to stop by and talk to us, answering questions and taking our feedback.  

Arenanet doesnt have to do this.   To me it shows they care.   Your opinion may vary.

Really? A few lines of text without ETA, screenshots or anything else that proves that they are actually working on said things shows you they care? When looking at all the broken promises so far this feels a little naive.
And as far as "taking our feedback" is concerned, the official forums are full of feedback, some threads there have dozens and hundreds of people supporting whatever the OP suggested, and no one cares about it. What makes you think that they actually care about the things you have suggested there?

Yeah, if Cantha ends up coming to GW2, I'm happy for any old GW player who could stomach the design changes and is still sticking around. I'll be watching your streams and let's plays of the game on Youtube.

I appreciate your enthusiasm but lets be honest. Yellowsnow promised this over and over after the last ama there would be enhanced communication(where he talked out his ass all night). Remind you of something, not to mention the promise again?

Sorry their bottom line is hurting right now and people are starting to jump ship at a fast pace and with competition on the horizon- you pull out the warhorse and flog it. There is a damn good reason why he showed his face again. Question why.

I may sound cynical and bitter but we been through all of this before with the exact same person. I dont expect a different result.

Color me cautiously optimistic. I hope all this stuff happens but I'm not holding my breath. The only reason I'm still here is I don't have anything better to play.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Once again, can't any game out there NOT contain the same type of things seen in just about every other MMO? Raiding, really? Unique raiding? Yeah, that don't fool me. It'll be the same stupid crap everyone knows and loves, just you'll have to use your other half of your brain to dodge rolling boulders.

Sure I'm overly enthusiastic and naive but its better than being cynical. I dont know what you guys expect out of this game, but I'm still having fun, and enjoying playing with my guild. I have 7 level 80 chars, 3 of which have finished the final story dungeon, the rest are almost done.   I get together with my guildies, and we do dungeons, dailies, fractals, WvW, etc.   We enjoyed the flame & frost dungeon and the southsun cove events, and we're looking forward to the dragon bash events this week. I dunno what else to tell you.

I like to think that there are a bunch of happy people for every one complainer on the forums...

On topic, thanks for posting this! I hope their "raiding alternative" is some sort of guild instance. And I can't wait to return to Cantha!

It's difficult to get excited by their "we are working on this" as they were working on things pre launch that we still don't have, along with many other things since launch. Do I need to wait 9+ months for this too?

lots of question dodging and no straight answers, as per usual.  

*believe it when I see it and typical grumblings*
