There is more questions asked in the interview.
MMORPG: Some players aren't very happy with how Ellen Kiel handled not only the attack, but also the threat against Lion's Arch. Would Evon have handled things differently? If so, how?
Bobby Stein, lead writer: I would say the people who aren’t happy with how Ellen handled the attack, my gut tells me these are Evon Gnashblade supporters who are probably a little bit sore about how the election turned out. Ellen is somebody who traditionally does things by the book. So when she learned about the Lion’s Arch threat the first thing she wanted to do was appeal to the council and try and get the support that she felt was necessary to fend off the attack. As anybody who knows anything about politics, sometimes the political machine moves very slowly, if at all. Unfortunately there was nothing that could be done about stopping the attack, so really at that point it was about Ellen doing her best with the resources she had to make sure as many people as possible got out alive.
Obviously Evon wasn’t too happy about being made the equipment quartermaster after the initial attack. It was pretty clear that he would’ve been a lot happier if Ellen had been buried under a lot of rubble during the attack, but he wasn’t so lucky in that regard. Remember that here’s a business man, and when you think of a business man in Lion’s Arch it’s a business man in a rough part of town. He might be doing business unethically. The lines for fair trade for him are a little bit different than they would be for your average person. Would Evon have prevented the attack? I don’t think so. Would he have handled the aftermath and damage and getting people to safety and trying to fight back differently? Yeah. I don’t know if the city would be in any better shape because of it.
