Being fired for that seems like an exaggeration, but she sounds like a bitch. Why can't someone who doesn't work with you criticize or even discuss your topic/design philosophy?

No, but I'm not arguing against Areanet's right to fire her, because they had every right to.

But word on the street is that she had been fired from other positions for disciplinary reasons so this might've just been the straw that fucked the camel's ass.

Honestly, no. It's dumb she played a gender card since it's a fairly benign comment, but maybe it was just a bad day. I think it's a very interesting discussion, though, the limits of what one can say on their private social media account.
>>
The tweet that she chose to blow up at looks like one of the most civil attempts of discussion ever. If anything, it looks like he’s absolutely tiptoeing around her to stop her from getting offended. It doesn’t mention anything about her gender either.

If she acts like this much of a cunt over such an innocent tweet, imagine how bad she must be to deal with on a daily basis. They were probably looking for any excuse to get rid of her. I’d fire her regardless though because it’s extremly bad for your company’s image to have employees badmouthing your customers on the internet. Honestly, if I ran a business I’d make sure none of my employees had personal twitter accounts that could be tied back to the company in any way.
>>
>>423944938
No, not that. But the tirade that followed that initial post, DEFINITELY. Maybe not the soul reason to fire her, but if you're an employer logic will tell you someone that goes on a tirade like that, especially when Deroir wasn't even attacking her, he was being nice, is just a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. If she didn't freak out on Deroir she was bound to explode on someone else for no good reason and that is the kind of person no one wants to employ. She went out of her way to paint Deroir as a sexist/woman hater and he did NOTHING wrong. Why would you want someone like that around? A manipulator that will bulldoze innocent customers cause she felt like it?

Companies can do what they want to their servers. It's lame to treat the player base like a bunch of kids at pre-school, but w/e.

Free speech is the right to speak out against tyranny and shit that what it's mainly for.

It's not, oh my God I can say what I want whenever I want.

Take.me for example I work at a car dealership, I deal with stupid people a lot , for example someone who comes in for just an oil change and then who returns later claiming the car is pulling to the left and it didn't do that before. (We changed your oil, no one touched the tires.)

Now if I went in my Public Facebook account and posted "Hey today (and tagged the guy the came in) came in and tried to tell me how to do my job. What a random asshat."

Well that is obviously fucking bad for the business and you shouldn't employ me.

That's not free speech, that's me venting my personal frustrations in a public space. And if that so happens to be bad for my employer, well then it's their right to terminate me.

Yes, part of being a game developer is interacting with your community in a favorable light. If you can't interact with your community civilly you deserve termination.

But she followed it up with increasingly rude attacks on pretty much everyone who commented and pretty much declared her hatred of all men in the playerbase. And with her history I doubt ArenaNet could have trusted her to apologize and quit this behavior. Even with the way the media's treating this, keeping her wouldn't have been worth the future bad publicity she would have caused with her next outburst.

For Jessica who seemed to be a more recent hire, it would definitely be reasonable to consider it, and after seeing that she celebrated TB's death, well, I'd pretty much consider her a lost cause and let her go.

If it's just a one-off fuckup and it's a valuable employee you don't just fire them on the spot though, that's bad management and I am surprised they fired both of the devs. The long timer should have been reprimanded, forced to take PR training, and probably told to stay off social media for awhile besides making a public apology, but not fired. 12 years of experience at a company is worth a lot. I guess we don't know the full situation inside ArenaNet and maybe that guy was already on HR's shitlist but it seems extreme to fire somebody who had been at the company for so long that suddenly.

Yes, by their (I feel safe to assume this person is a left leaning/liberal person) standards, that was a situation that required termination: A person in a position of power, who puts in their Twitter profile that they are an employee of a company punched down on a person who, no one can argue was not being courteous.

She is in a position of power or authority, no matter how hard she tries to argue some bullshit about "the patriarchy" or whatever. Anybody else's argument saying she shouldn't of been fired or held accountable only adds up to "do not speak to your superiors", as the media defending her has made it to be.

Good luck getting anything from /v/ that’s less biased than
>>423946608

The REAL story here, without sexism, is that a “Content Creator” ™ tried to explain to a Developer that her entire process of writing storylines was flawed from the beginning, then suggested something that was both infeasible and also largely unnoticeable for the player.

Basically the Developer stated that they write no-name Protagonists as somewhat shallow because their identity is based on what you want your character to be, not based on some predefined personality, so they can’t skew too far into one personality. Likewise, NPC’s treat you relatively the same.

The “Content Creator”™ tried to argue that branching dialogue options would be a good idea, without even considering the scale of what he’s suggesting (Hundreds of hours of optional content depending on your dialogue choices. Wanting to pick the “fuck you” dialogue options would require programming every NPC to treat you like a prick from now on, otherwise your choices would feel meaningless).

Basically the same thing any MMORPG writer hears on a daily basis. Then he took it personally when he was told how unhelpful his advice was. She took the bait, and he pulls the classic “Why are you being a bitch?!?” card on her. Downward spiral from there.

ArenaNet has over 300 employees. It's not huge, but big enough that a "first time" offense like this rarely warrants a talking-to from the CEO.

Hell, if twitter existed back when I was in high school kids probably would have gotten suspended over shit like this. We used to get in trouble if we were caught smoking in public, even if we weren’t wearing school uniforms. Old ladies would often report students to the school if they saw them smoking in uniform around town. God knows why.

If you don't want to be representative of your company, don't make social media accounts where your position at a company is for some reason an important part to show off. Social media isn't your CV or LinkedIn profile so stop treating it as such and people wont assume you speak for the company you work at.

The issue is that most of these fucknuts are so thirsty for that twitter checkmark they feel like they HAVE to put the info there so they can apply for it without realizing that means they are dragging their company into whatever they say even if they don't mean to.

>>423951659
Blue checkmarks on twitter accounts means "verified", usually for accounts to show they are employed at wherever they claim to work or be who they claim to be if they are an official figure known in something.
>>
>>423951095
What can I say, I'm a pretty licentious guy.
Anyway, you're exaggerating. The extent to which you're a representative of your company is usually described in your contract. Normally it entails things like not discussing certain specifics of your job with outside people and not doing anything to openly disparage the company. Pretty sure the extent to what they can ask of you is limited by the law, but things like this are normal.
Price publicly attacked a customer. ArenaNet are within their rights to fire her. Whether they choose to do that, is up to them.
Dunno what Channel 7 is, but I'm pretty sure news anchors can be fired in the event that they rant on about how their boss is an asshole on Twitter, and such events are foreseen and covered in their employment contracts.

She wanted one of these because somehow they give some kind of legitimacy to anything you say on Twitter or something.
But you've got to prove you're someone notable to get one of these marks. Which is why her account was plastered with the fact that she worked at ArenaNet and on Guild Wars 2.

No it was just the Rei guy, and he was strangely the most dedicated poster you ever met...I mean, it was a forced meme but you had to give it to the guy. He was ALWAYS on...Even when there was only a thousand or so users, he constantly posted the pic. Creepiest part was it wasnt the same pic, he would literally take a picture of his penis, open it in MSPAINT, and draw new hair and everything on it each time. There was also tons of CP in between those posts.

>>423951309
Freedom of speech absolutely applies in this case. She's not being prosecuted.
>>
>>423951659
"Verified" user status is a stupid badge twitter originally gave out to public figures like celebrities and notable companies who'd get impersonated without something like that.
Then twitter started giving it out to literally-who journalists who are in no way notable and whose opinions mean nothing, so it became a status symbol. There's also automated systems that lock out and suspend users who swear in threads that contain a verified user's handle, that sort of thing.
You can actually beg Twitter for one if you can dogpiled by shitposts, and chances are you'll get one if you're a lefty.

>>423952037

That is exactly what people (her included) are saying. She has the right to say what she wants, but this does not make her immune from the consequences of her words.

Ben Cuck is trying to say that somehow her right to freedom of speech has been violated and asking why no one is defending her. But she herself said over a year ago that in this case her rights are not being violated.

the real answer is that she was probably having a shit day, regularly gets these kinds of people responding to everything she posts because she's a woman in the games industry, and got fed up with it and let loose on this guy who probably meant well. she overreacted, he didn't deserve to be called out for such an innocuous comment, but she definitely should not have been fired over something so trivial. a stern meeting with higher-ups and a warning that if it happens again she's out, absolutely, but this one-time incident isn't the kind of thing you should lose a job for, and it's clear that arenanet is just caving instead of defending and supporting their employees.

also if this was a man getting fired for saying a racial slur or posting conservative rhetoric you guys would be up in arms about it.

Well, it looks like he's trying to discuss the game with a developer, and is just shot down with no real reason.
The guy's tone was perfectly respectful, esp. if you look at his 4th post.

Yes.

A company worker and a customer are behaving like drooling retards on the salesfloor. One of these people, if not kicked out, will walk out of the building and make you 60$ richer. The other, if not kicked out, will make you 200$ poorer today, 200$ poorer tomorrow, and so on every day until she collects her full 80k salary.

As a worker, your status can not be merely 'not negative' to the company. You must, every day, provide more value than the company is paying you to provide. Even if her opinions brought equal sales to what they drove away, it was a net loss to the company to hire her to express them.

How the fuck do people always ignore the important parts when defending a person like this? This isn't the worst thing she tweeted and you know it. You don't win an argument by ignoring reality.

The company is owned by gooks who have no stake in identity politics, and for all we know this is not the first time she's acted like an ass on social media.

I have no problem with any of these. If I were the owner of a business, I wouldn't want people thinking I hired a prick to do the job. It'd be different if they didn't put themselves out there as "I WORK AT ABC COMPANY FOLLOW ME FOR ABC UPDATES" and were just a face and a name with connections to the business--but if I own a sandwich shop and the representative who says he lost 300 lbs starts diddling kids, he's not going to be the rep anymore.

1.She kept doubling down and insulting him for hours
2.It is extremely likely that this WAS her second or third strike already. Her departure from Paizo was self-admittedly cause by a similar issue.
3.ArenaNet was faced with supporting an employee or supporting the dozens of fans she insulted. Said "rando asshat" was one of the most visible members of the community, even had a custom NPC made in the game after him.
Nice strawman

kek. freedom of speech is what got jessica fired. she's entitled to it. she's not entitled to degrade fans and become a sexist piece of shit while representing a company, especially in her twitter bio. consider yourself on the job 24/7 if you're interacting with fans. you can't just turn into a disgusting human being because you're out of the office. the world doesn't work that way, femanon.

Yeah sadly I cant feel sorry for him. You know he was just trying to get in her pants and or get some sympathy from another single female employee, making himself into some super White Knight pro-feminist guy.

Either that or, he defended her because she kinda roped him into it. Met him at work, befriended him, starting letting him think he might actually have a chance one day, and hes a beta male so he becomes her total slave and does whatever she says.

Either way, still cant feel sorry for him. No sympathy for betas.

No, being an ass on your private twitter shouldn't warrant being fired.

To be fair, he was respectful and inquisitive. Didn't really come across as sycophantic. His tweets were pretty much asking her why don't MMORPGs employ a similar consequence of dialogue choice to what single-player RPGs have been (branching dialogue leading to a different outcome and not just being a tree you have to visit every leaf of in any order and move on like in GW2).

>Today in being a female cook: "'Allow me--a person who does not work with you--explain to you how to do your job"

I't might be their personal twitter, but its not set to private and the coment's where in direct relation with the company business, she can be an ass in private as long as its not in any way related to the company, but when the comments where not only about the product of the company itself but also against one of the members of the community of the game belonging to that company it is grounds for firing in any country, it's just bad PR and supporting it in any way will cause severe damage to their reputation (not even considering the fact that she was probably already flagged for firing for being an insufferable bitch, if you are a model employee something like this might be swept under the rug and just get you a warning)

But then let me make it about, fuck, I don't know, cars.

If I owned a carshop, and one of my mechanics had a twitter with a bio that very publicly links her to it; and if said mechanic made a long twitter rant about how hard it is to, I don't know, overhaul; and there was this car youtuber who has been a long time, not only customer, but very positive critic of my carshop; and said car youtuber chimed in to the mechanic's thread to explain how, from a different perspective but with a very respectful tone, overhauling isn't that difficult; and then the mechanic replied with

I agree with you, but if you want to be a putrid cunt to people without any of the consequence or just need to vent, why not just make a separate/anonymous account that isn't tied to your persona? Samefagging on social media is pretty scummy but it's still a safe way to get your feelings out
In most industries, as long as you're wearing the uniform (or advertising yourself as a representative of a company in this case), you're considered on the clock and setting examples for your company. If you understand that and still act like a putrid cunt/don't find an alternative, you're just making things worse on yourself and your employer

that said many customers can be shitheads but thats for you to keep to yourself

if you are a model employee you probably don't get on that mess in the first place, it's clear that they wanted to get rid of her for a long time, she just gave them the proper excuse to do so

it's hilarious how self destructive this people are, they didn't have to frame her or even gave her shitty assignments to get the excuse for firing her, she just did it all by herself

Yes. Anyone who brings gender or feminism into video games should be shot on site. The western gaming scene is fucking ruined thanks to this shit. No fun anymore, just boring interactive movies with social justice hamfisted into it.

Yes, I am glad she was fired and I wish more people would be fired for this kind of behavior.

Press release articles usually are. When devs release news about their games sites will almost always just copy chunks of text from the press release.

It's like you can't help but supplant your own version of reasoning in other peoples' heads. She puts herself out as a dev for the company; she makes an ass of herself; company fires her for being an ass associated with the company.

That reasoning doesn't necessitate anyone being in power. You're just addicted to accusing other people of thinking in a certain manner because the contemplating the existence of alternative, valid thought processes is beyond your capability.

I won't sit here and say I don't think she should of been fired for being a complete asshole to that user. But, having worked in a creative field for a few years, I can understand from her point of view that, even though you make a piece of entertainment like videogames or movies or illustrations, you don't necessarily want to talk/discuss it all the time. Especially with fans, people more passionate about it, have more time to discuss and think about it for hours upon hours about it, and are more than ready to give you a piece of their mind about what you work hours on.

Again, Prince was wrong and she's arrogant, but before I attribute just malice of poor character on her, I'll give her the benefit of the doubt that this was a bad day. She was trying to do a little bit of fun insider stuff, thinking nobody would bother her with a rebuttal, and when it happened she couldn't disengage.

The answer of course is yes I did, regardless of the fact that I was in the back room of the store and would never treat a customer like that, I broke a policy the company held and have to deal with it, if I had done it in front of the customer I would have been fired and sent home on the spot.

Yes, independent of what industry is is - if you act like an asshole and don’t have tact in how you publicly portray yourself, and especially if you offend or mistreat your business’s target demographic while doing so, then you’re gonna get fired.

The way she acted was fireable and the way she’s acted post firing only reaffirms the fact that her former employer made the right decision.

The crux of the matter is that as frustrated as this may have made her, the simple truth is she was treated no differently than any other game dev who posts similar comments online. But what caused it to blow up is her and her defenders acting every step of the way as if this had something to do with her being a woman. I'm sure she's gotten plenty of female specific and insulting comments. But this one right here is certainly not the worst that any dev ever has gotten, and definitely not the even rating for "shit people say to women online" for a comment.

Nor is she the first dev to be fired for not being able to not be an asshole online. People have even retroactively been fired for it. ie. that guy who got hired by Bungie to make Halo maps and then got fired mid-move when someone revealed to them he used to insult the company and its devs years ago. A bit more company than customer specific, I suppose.

Microsoft flight needs a community manager?
Did she crash and burn it so hard they don't make the games anymore?

You know that shit was literally made up by the "victims", right? People checked with the cops.

God I fucking hate twiter

Thanks to this cunt of a thread I'm down the cringiest, smuggest SJW comic/gaming rabbit hole of accounts ever

God damn my life I'm not even political or white but the alt-right doesn't bug me this much.

they have a master mailing list where they all coordinate with each other and engage in cartel behavior

So does a community manager just monitor the forums?

He should be fired but it's not like he can fire himself. This is like asking Trump to impeach himself.

Actually it's a message board for elite types. And it really isn't that exclusive, just heavily moderated.

Given all the latest information, especially after strzoks shit today, maybe she doesn't deserve to get fired. Maybe it's that kind of situation.

He's one of the co-founders of the studio he works for. He's a director with a track record of directing good games. He also blocks shitposters who shitpost him because they hear he blocks people for shitposters. And most importantly, he doesn't go fucking nuclear at his studio's partner and tweet how he's being harassed on account of his gender.

Christ, maybe we should adopt Singapore's anti-race baiting laws and apply it to all forms of intersectional cancer. All these people bitching about fucking nothing has done more to divide communities and societies more than anything else.

In some ideologies, that is the goal.

If cops confirmed it, why did the FBI investigation find nothing?
>>

Here's the FBI report on it, courtesy of FOIA.

And yeah, it proved your statement. The threats of violence attributed to Gamergate were nothing.
