Guild Wars 2 : Player Decision

Posted Aug 12, 2013 by Suzie Ford

Players are always clamoring for the ability to effect change in the games they play. ArenaNet gave it to Guild Wars 2 players recently with the election season that saw player bringing the Cutthroat Politics content to an end. In today's column, we take a look at what that may potentially mean. Read on before heading to the comments to duke it out!

I myself voted for Evon.  My reasoning was I thought it would make for an interesting story, and I was more excited for the Abaddon fractal.  Either way both fractal ideas sounded great.  Now I’m not going to go on a rant about how I’m disappointed Evon lost, because I’m not.  I’m also not trying to start a huge internet forum brawl.  The player reaction to the event is just fascinating to me.  Before we’ve only seen players get angry about how a game ends, or maybe how a new patch nerfed their build.  This event is all about what the majority of players want based on what content they will get to play through.  I guess I wasn’t expecting much of a response, but wow was I surprised.  But why are players angry about an election that isn’t even real?  What would really cause this type of response?
