Infiltrating the Agency - An Exclusive Q&A with Lead Designer Rory McGuire

Updated Mon, Aug 09, 2010 by B. de la Durantaye

It seems like many years ago when we first heard about Sony Online Entertainment's The Agency. Then things went quiet for a while. The silence was broken recently as SOE has let the world know their first person shooter MMOG is shaping up to be an exciting addition to players' libraries. Ten Ton Hammer spoke with Lead Designer Rory McGuire at Fan Faire 2010 to find out more about this hot upcoming title.

The second measurement [to our matchmaking] is by taking the hard score number modifying it by the number of matches the player has played. Did he win those? What was his kill/death ratio overall? ... If it is a decently progressed player with fairly mediocre stats he's paired with other players in that same range... You can very easily have a level ten guy who’s fresh in the game who just kills everyone, so you have to account for that.
