  • MMORGPDOT.com Interviews Magic Hat Software on their game Irth Online.

    MMORPGDot: Your reactions aside, how has the overall player response been? The game is still in, more or less, the honeymoon period - have any major issues popped up that you didn't expect?

    Tony Pungitore: First of all, we have the greatest community of any other MMO out there. The IO community is our greatest resource. Our community is actively involved with game development and they help us at every turn to refine mechanics, content and features. So things pop up all the time from the community and as a result the game is on a perpetual course of improvement.

    The greatest thing for us is to take a player concern and turn it into player praise. One issue that the players considered major at release was no tutorial. The game was not released with a tutorial so players had to refer to the manual. Players want a manual as a reference and not as a learning tool. Players want to learn to play by playing. So we came up with a tutorial for them and they praised us.

    Initially players said that combat was too slow. So we revamped combat and players applauded.

    So sure there were issues and to some extent there will be others in the future. But the community has learned that we are responsive and intend on rectifying any issue that arises to the community's satisfaction.

    Has Irth joined the contender list? Read the interview and decide for yourself.

    Try DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ (DDO) for free and have a chance to win prizes – including a chance to win an Alienware® Area 51® m5500 Notebook!

    Turbine is very pleased to announce that we will be running a special Preview of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach in conjunction with IGN and FilePlanet!

    This Preview is open to players in North America who are registered Fileplanet users (a paid FilePlanet subscription is NOT required). Only U.S. residents age 18 and over are eligible to win prizes.

    Beginning today, January 13, all registered FilePlanet users in North America can sign-up for the chance to access the DDO Preview, which will run from Thursday, January 19 through Saturday, January 21. Preview access will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis until the allotted Preview registration keys have been distributed by FilePlanet. If you are not currently a registered FilePlanet user, you can visit FilePlanet right now to create an account and then sign up for the DDO Preview.

    You can now activate your preorder bonus key. Doing this will create a game account that you will be able to use once the headstart begins in late February and allow you to obtain the +1AC amulet. Again, the amulet will become available once the headstart begins. This account can then be upgraded once you get the retail copy of the game which will allow you to continue using the account once the game officially goes live.
