Welcome to the May AFC! — Guild Wars 2 Forums

Welcome to the May AFC!

Welcome, one and all, to our walk down Memory Lane™ where we talk with devs who were involved with the development of Guild Wars (our original games: Guild Wars; Guild Wars Factions; Guild Wars Nightfall; and Guild Wars: Eye of the North).

Participating Devs (and this list will grow):

  • Stephen Clarke-Willson
  • Bobby Stein
  • Andrew Gray
  • Joe Kimmes
  • Matthew Medina
  • Peter Fries
  • Linsey Murdock
  • Andrew McLeod
  • Isaiah Cartwright

Please keep in mind that these folks may have been involved in something entirely different back during the development of our original games. For instance, Peter Fries was a map artist for the majority of the time he was involved with GW, and Matthew had a different role, too. I'll ask around and get some titles -- a sort of "then and now" -- but if you ask questions, the person most able to answer, or many more than one, will take a look and respond if they can give an answer or respond to an anecdote you share.

General guidelines were shared earlier, but the principal is this: Please post your best questions, comments, anecdotes, or stories, and keep to no more than 3 in a single thread. (It may actually be preferable to just focus a thread on any one given topic -- you be the judge!)

You may post through Friday afternoon Pacific time. We look forward to chatting with you about our games!

  • Hey folks,

    I wanted to give a little notice that we'll be closing this subforum to new member questions or comments in a little over one hour.

    Thanks to everyone who joined us to share their stories, questions, comments, suggestions, and more during the May ArenaNet Forum Chat. We will be closing this subforum to new member contributions now. But please remember:

    The devs will continue to comment, as they are able to do so, over the next few weeks
    Check back from time to time to see if they've added a new comment or an answer to one of those timeless questions!

    We'll be back in June with a new AFC. Thanks again to every forum member for the thoughtful, interesting, intriguing, moving, and overall exceptional contributions to what has been an amazing conversation! <3
