Guild Wars 2 writers fired after Twitter argument

Price outlined the balance writers need to strive for when writing for a player character in an MMORPG, considering the balance between uniqueness and the individualism of the player themselves. Denmark-based Deroir commented on the issue, suggesting that branching dialogue options could help overcome the genre's limitations. "Get out there and make sure the players have a good time".
Price didn't take Deroir's comments well, responding with, "thanks for trying to tell me what we do internally, my dude".
However, the exchange became heated, with Price contending that Deroir was talking down to her, saying: '"Allow me-a person who does not work with you-explain to you how you do your job."' But it was her next tweet that generated widespread opprobrium on Reddit, with its reference to "Rando asshats" talking down to her.
From there, Guild Wars 2 community members and others on Twitter launched barbs in both directions: some against Deroir for seemingly mansplaining to Price, and some against Price for not engaging in communication with Deroir's comment.
"Here's a bit of insight that I legitimately hope he reflects on: she never asked for his feedback", he wrote in a since-deleted tweet. He goes on to use an analogy to explain the point of contention by Price, "Imagine you're an astronomer and you start sharing some things you've learned in the last few months since you began a research project observing Saturn, only to have observation techniques explained to you by a layman". Deroir disagreed with Price's opinions, and Price responded by insinuating that Deroir was sexist.
"In a world where discussions should be encouraged, and not belittled, yet the opposite becomes reality, I've apparently found myself in the midst of a war I never meant to partake in", Deroir tweeted. Guild Wars 2 players were both surprised and thankful at the quick response, with some noting that they didn't quite expect the pair to be thrown out on the streets.
The situation was abruptly resolved by a post from ArenaNet's CEO Mike O'Brien on July 5, where he announced that due to failing to uphold standards of communication with players, two employees -presumably Price and Fries - had been dismissed. "Their attacks on the community were unacceptable".
What O'Brien has done is effectively indicate that ArenaNet can be easily and quickly influenced from outside the company via what could've been a relative handful of players nursing a grudge over things that had nothing specifically to do with any of Price's actual work on Guild Wars 2. We value your input. The move has been widely condemned in the games industry even as many fans of the game are vocally celebrating it, which has spurred a larger conversation about the frequently-acrimonious relationship between video games, those who make them, and those who play them.
