well they had someone(josh) and then he quit
Actually, that guy isn't my "replacement", at least as far as I understand. Smgz, I applied for a job at ArenaNet, and they hired someone else instead (I think his name is Sean). It was a multi-faceted position, including competitive coverage and some in-game writing as well, but was titled "web writer", so I went for it. I was hopeful that he would actually put some focus on producing solid pvp content for the site, but so far it's been fairly lackluster. They did ask me if I'd like to continue contributing match reports on an infrequent basis, but I felt like they needed to make some significant changes in the design of their competitive play before it was really possible to cover it properly. I was also a little let down that they went with the person they did, because it was a clear message that they were still putting more focus on pve (apparently this guy's main focus was writing in-game dialogue) than on progressing the game as an eSport.
