Today is the day where Lion's Arch comes under attack and who knows what will happen? I got to sit down with ArenaNet and ask some questions to find out some of those details.
We had the pleasure of being able to sit down and have a conversation with Devon Carter and Meelad Sadat from ArenaNet yesterday to talk details about the upcoming Edge of the Mists map that will come out February 4th! We chat about the influence of the Living World story, how they tackle current meta issues, and rewards. Jump in and see what he has to say!
GW2Hub: Last question on the CDIs. How about a CDI on Charr Armour, huh?
Chris: Oh. Yeah yeah! Someone awhile ago mentioned if it is possible to have CDIs from Engineering CDI, Art CDI. I said that I would talk to Mister Daniel Dociu about that. Because we're so busy, and despite seeing him every day, I forgot. So I am going to have that chat with him to see what he thinks, and Dave B about their thoughts about it as well. I'm sure they would love to do it.
Here you will find the Video Interview we did with Chris Whiteside on the topic of the Collaborative Development Initiative (CDI) while playing through the Edge of the Mists and failing miserably at it. Jump on in to watch and see the full breadth of the conversation!
GW2Hub: So have any idea that have come up during CDIs gone completely against the ideas the teams were originally thinking?
Chris: Certainly at a micro level. There's been times we have been discussed exactly the same things discussed in the CDI; but, when they are discussed by the community there's been a much better metro-sizeable argument from them being that they are in the grass roots and seeing, playing living and breathing. Much different from a micro level.
That's right! We sat down with Chris Whiteside, the Studio Design Director for ArenaNet, and had a long discussion with him about the CDIs. Jump on in to read the fine details and check back for the video where this all took place!
