Where you online when the anarchy broke out?
RPGVault has posted an entertaining, albeit short interview with Anarchy Online's own Craig Morrison. The interview takes a quick look at what older MMOs have to do to stay competitive. AO is probably one of the best MMOGs that you have never played. I enjoyed it and I'm not a Sci-Fi fanatic. Here is a brief look at what RPGVault had to say, briefly:
"Set almost 30,000 years in the future, Funcom's Anarchy Online takes place in an age when humanity has reached deep into space to find, explore and colonize huge numbers of worlds spanning the length and breadth of the Milky Way. One of these is Rubi-Ka. A small, rather inhospitable planet in a distant sector of the galaxy, it would be little more than just another insignificant dot on a star map were it not for the fact it holds deposits of notum. This material is both rare and essential in nano-technology. As a result, its discovery many thousands of years ago led the enormous Omni-Tek Corporation to begin terraforming and extraction operations. Since that time, the company has established a city, Omni-1, which is Rubi-Ka's capital, its largest population center and the primary focal point for the authorized export trade. "
