Blackstar: Exclusive ION INterview with Brandon Reinhart, Part Two
PvP On Wheels
Creating a solid PvP environment is incredibly difficult, and it
requires more balancing than many sane developers like to undertake.
However, PvP becomes even more difficult when you add in vehicle based
combat, but that's exactly what the developers at Spacetime Studios did
in their upcoming MMOG Blackstar. Recently, Ten Ton Hammer's Cody
"Micajah" Bye sat down with Brandon Reinhart, lead designer for
Blackstar, and the pair discussed the ins and outs of the upcoming MMOG.

Hammer: And each race has its own various set of classes?
there any correlations between the two factions?
There are essentially four classes, but each has a different
permutation based on the faction. For instance, the tanking class for
the colonies is called the Commando and it's called the Crusader on the
Scorn Empire side of the game. Although the core functionality is
basically the same there's about 80% overlap on abilities and
functions there's about 20% of the skills that are set aside for
unique action based abilities.
