Jumpgate Evolution - Interview @ MMORPG
A brief interview with Hermann Peterscheck of NetDevil about PvP in Jumpgate Evolution can be found right here.
MMORPG.com: How will PvP factor into the game's lore?
Hermann Peterscheck: It depends. There is fiction behind the various battlespace scenarios, so that is one of the factors. In terms of open space there are less specific ties since we can't really predict what is going to happen. More likely, we will respond to PVP events and feed them into future fiction as opposed to trying to force it down one path or another.
The other direction is how the lore itself influences PVP. Here we consider that the three major nations are in a conflict with one another. It's not total open war, but they are definitely competitive. The personality of the nations is reflected in things like ship design and general attitude. For example the Octavians are much more regimented and militaristic whereas Solrain is more motivated by profit and gain. What we want to do is have the players feel that they identify with their nation and it's goals.
