Think You've Got What it
Takes to be a GM? Rofl!

The backbone of any MMOG company is it's customer service team who take
the brunt of any shortcomings a product has. What is it like sitting in
the Gamemasters chair resolving player issues, and what would it take
to do their job? We talked with GM_Rofl whose playful and friendly
method is widely renowned to get a better understanding of what goes on
at NCsoft.  Don't miss this look at customer service and one
of the unique individuals who does it.  

It's not unusual to hear complaints about the service
people receive,
but what do they actually do and how difficult is this job? Whether
it's banning a gold spammer, getting someone unstuck, or updating a
bugged mission the GM's are probably some of the busiest people around.
Players have a 24/7 expectation and with little patience for delay,
these are huge shoes to fill. Those who have played Tabula Rasa long
enough will readily recognize the name of GM_Rofl as one of the most
fun loving, interactive, and friendly GM in any game. Rofl was kind
enough to talk with us regarding the rigorous life of customer service
and gave a little personal insight into the world of Tabula Rasa.
