The text says that the complete interview will follow - and that he wants to allow roles to be played which have been available in UO, but not since then : Merchants and Fishermen.

And the article says (it isn't clear whether this quote is from him) that eventually all [traditional] classes of MMOs like "Supporters", "Tanks" or "Damage-dealers" direct lead only to the killing of monsters.

If I inerpret this correctly, he wants more than than.

He wants what the German-language term of "Bauer-Gaming" (in stark contrast to "Power-Gaming") says, too.

If In understand it correctly, it will be a new UO in the end. He doesn't speak of any offline game anymore … At least that's how it appears to me …
