In our latest Guild Wars 2 column, we take a look at the just-announced "Cutthroat Politics" update that is coming tomorrow. We offer some analysis of the content we learned about during a press conference and some thoughts about it as well. Be sure to share your ideas in the comments after reading.
Ever since the assassination back during The Dragon Bash, the seat on the Captain’s Council has remained empty. This powerful position is being pursued by Ellen Kiel, and Evon Gnashblade. But this power can only be obtained through election. Each will make some promises to players in order to secure votes. Ellen will reduce the cost of waypoint uses for four weeks, and start fractal research dealing with the Thaumanova Reactor explosion. Evon will reduce the cost of the black Lion keys for four weeks, and will start research on the fall of the old God Abaddon. Fans of the original may find Evons offerings a bit more interesting. One thing to remember when supporting your favorite candidate, whatever option loses, will never see the light of day. The development team hasn’t created this content yet. They are waiting to hear what the players want.
