The problem is the attitude of the guy while representing Anet. It sheds a bad light on the company as a whole because this is just very very bad community management. I hope Martin makes an appearance and we get an official statement because I don't want to play a game where I'm told I ruining it for "playing how I want to play".
And honestly: they tick for +565 so the GvG doesn't even infringe on normal WvW...
But I'm actually not here to argument but just to spread the word (I don't even GvG).
Wasnt meaning to argue, my point is, its one guy doing it, if what hes doing is wrong, he will most likely be punished. But 'spreading the word' which everyone seems to be doing on reddit, the official forums and now here is making a mountain out of a molehill. Its one guy, and he should be reported the proper manner, not people trying to make a case on GvG, and multiple other issues over this and using this as a soap box to shout their opinions. Its slighty ridiculous the "Oh i showed my friends how this one GM acted and now none of them will buy GW2 and I quit!" um okay, Ive seen worse from tons of different games and never seen the kind of knee jerk reaction and petulant crying that I see here with this. A guy did what some people perceive as a douchebag thing, fine, report it and let it be sorted out. Going "See this means Anet hates all of us and their entire company is against us and F them" is just stupid and seems like people are trying to use this as a rallying call for those that want GvG. Reminds me of Scalx or scrilax or whatever his name is making an hour long video basically saying, they didn't make the game the way I wanted so now I shall bitch and moan for all to hear.
Edit: Also in a situation like this, if the gentleman in question is fired, Anet wont give an 'official' posting about it like some of these people are demanding, because they can't. Unless the person in question is some high up in the company, firing's or letting go are a private matter, they don't go and broadcast it to the world. I'd be highly surprised if they allow this guy to be scapegoated for all the hatred these people feel, if you look at the official forums they almost want this guy to be fired over every slight/mistake/problem they feel there is with the game.
