MPOGD.com released an interview with Tabula Rasa Community Manager April "CuppaJo" Burba today discussing mechanics, clones, and about how beta is coming along. She takes some interesting questions and explains why Tabula Rasa is so different in today's market.
April: It seems that people who play a ton of games, not just MMOs, get it much easier than people who mainly play MMOs. I think that is because if you play a wide variety of games you donÂt come into TR with as much of an expectation of how the controls are ÂsupposedÂ to work than a heavy MMO player. Instead, you just learn the controls and the rules to the game and you go play. ItÂs about a 15 minute learning curve for some, but once you learn it suddenly you are much more immersed in the action than any other MMO I have ever played. My least favorite MMOs are the ones where you click on a target and then wait for the computer to finish the combat for you. TR is the opposite of that type of gaming.
