STO's Al Rivera Talks Diminishing Returns with STOked Podcast

Posted Thu, Mar 10, 2011 by Martuk

Star Trek Online (STO) Podcast STOked recently got the chance to talk numbers with STO Design Lead Al “CaptainGeko” Rivera. Rivera took some time to talk about diminishing returns in STO and how the team has balanced it to have a minimal impact on players. If you’re into number crunching, the discussion also goes into the math behind the returns and how the contribution is measured, complete with equations and a graph.

The podcast also explores the latest STO Feature Episode: Dark Intentions. The crew provides a walkthrough of the story and some video of the events from the latest storyline of the final episode's conclusion.
