I'm a few days late on this one. It's hard to find the news area of their new website :) However.... The Gods and Heroes Official Forums has a short interview with Stieg Hedlund.
Right now, what is your favorite part of Gods and Heroes?
I really like the action combat. For example we've got a move called "the ladder" which involves jumping on the opponent's back and applying both a sleeper hold and a leg scissors until he passes out. ItÂs awesome both to see move from ancient pankration, a combination of boxing and wrestling, come to life in our game, as well as to see this type of intricate interaction in an MMO.
