Ten Ton Hammer: In Ten Ton Hammer’s recent VIP interview, you touched on some of the ways resources will be gathered in Earthrise. With some of the rare resources in particular, will they be spread out over numerous controllable zones to help prevent a single guild from claiming too much control over the market value?
Apostol: Each controllable territory will allow guilds to mine only a subset of all rare resources available in the world. Guilds will be encouraged to carefully plan the resource market they want to enter and how their territories conquest plan will be laid out in order to gain an advantage. Still, it is possible for very powerful guilds or guild alliances to gain control over the majority of certain resource productions and manipulate it to its own advantage, although not enough to take the server’s economy out of balance.
