The Weekly Raid: What Are Your Thoughts On The Recent Guild Wars 2 Firing?

The Guild Wars 2 community was ignited this week by the firing of two staff members, writer Jessica Price and a developer who defended her actions on twitter.

It was a post on said social media platform that set this train in motion. Jessica Price responded to what seems like an innocuous tweet then dug in her heels in the litany of responses that followed. For context here is the tweet in question:

Mike O'Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet informed the community of his decision to fire her and another employee who defended her actions the next day via an official forum post.

By now every major gaming news site has written on the story. Our story only includes a summary but readers looking for a deeper dive should check out Kotaku's interview with Price.

There's also a detailed video summary provided by YouTuber WoodenPotatoes:
