'Tis the Season
In the World of Warcraft player vs player (PvP) scene, there is nothing
more competitive than the arenas. Right now players are eagerly
awaiting season 4's start. However, we are also nearing the release of
the Wrath of the Lich King. Questions abound over when both are going
to be released and how they will effect each other. The timing on both
of these led Byron "Messiah" Mudry to look at the question, "Is season
4 too late?".
More important to me than how
long a seasons is, is how long a season should be. A season to me
should be long enough that an average team can not quite get a full set
of gear from the season. They should have to make choices as to what
they get each season and those choices should be difficult. This allows
players to constantly feel a sense of progression through the seasons.
If there is a period of time where they are not working towards
something then, they will lose interest.
