the GW2 dev team is probably the best the industry can offer right now

Vanilla WoW devs made a game with no emphasis on world pvp whatsoever? No wonder they are ex blizzard.
Originally posted by Loke666 The whole idea was lead designer Jeff Strains and he got permision from Mike Morhaime who also was a EQ fanatic.
if i had to pick 3 of the most influential mmo visionaries of the last 2 decades it would be
- Richard Garriott, Ralph Koster, Jeff Strain
Strain could have stuck w GW2 but that did not satisfy him,
so he left ANET to do a console mmo sandbox game
i never get tired of reading Strains Dev speech from 5 years ago
The truth is, I hope that I am completely ignorant about what kind of games we'll be making in ten years, because I hope some hotshot kid comes out of nowhere and changes everything out from under us before then. If that doesn't happen, we've all failed to embrace and protect the culture of innovation that made it possible for us to be here in the first place.

but it is worth noting that Strain was the Lead programmer for WOW before he left to do Guild Wars
Mike O'Brien, team lead and lead programmer of Warcraft III
Patrick Wyatt, lead programmer for Warcraft I
