PotBS Interview at Stratics

Posted Wed, Nov 23, 2005 by Ethec

No one will ask whether Captain Morgan (arrrrr!) will make an in-game appearance.
I guess I'll have to bring my Cap'n with me. Here's a snippet from the lightning round of Pirates of the Burning Sea Q&A done by the Stratics crew.

Stratics: It is a challenge to integrate the economic and combat mechanics and keep it fun. It sounds as though you have taken this problem head on and you know better than to bite off more than you can chew at the start.

Daynes: We try! One of the greatest lessons we’ve learned from other MMPs is to keep your own expectations realistic, and aim for what you can actually hit. This is a challenge for any team and we’ve reached too high more than once, so we’ve learned from experience as well as example. We’ll get the economy integrated, but it will only be once it’s ready.

Arrrrr! Take a look, matey...Stratics' November Pirates of the Burning Sea interview!
