Default Anarchy Online - Producer's Letter @ Official Site

December 2nd, 2007, 13:25
A new Producer's Letter has hit the official Anarchy Online site.
Then there are the new items and nanos, and people, as always, have already had quite a bit to say on the new items so I wanted to add a little here. When it comes to designing items we generally have to face the fact that at least as far as the feedback is required we are often in a ‘no win’ situation! The new nanos that are being introduced in 17.7 are a great example. When items are within the current budgets players have for skills on their characters then the items are seen as ‘too easy’ to equip and the game is being ‘dumbed down’, then when we make items that are intentionally at the high end of what’s possible they are ‘too hard’. In this case that difficulty is very much the intention!

Simple solution: make new features available for all ranges of players and give those too poor to be able to buy the shiny new things an interesting way to get richer. Most importantly, give casual gamers a chance and do not force people to camp to get levels or money - this is what turned me away back in the times.
