For those who didn’t know, Narrative Designer Jessica Price posted a twitter thread about the issues narrative designers have to consider while writing MMORPG protagonist characters. She was approached by a Guild Wars 2 Youtuber called Deroir, who politely asked her if she had considered branching dialogue. She responded as if Deroir were attempting to tell her how to do her job (he kind of was), then her coworker Peter Fries defended her. The exchange exploded on reddit and both Price and Fries were let go from ArenaNet.
I do have many thoughts on this and they are complicated."
