Funcom employee Friday with Means - August 20th, 2010 - Enforcers + Fixers

This week was spent trying to put the finishing touches on the new PvP playfield while arguing about Nemesis Nanos and getting the Enforcer and Fixer nanos ready for release based on feedback...whew. Streamlining the process of getting to this playfield AND the BS will should be done next week with a probable to Live date the week after that...while some continue working on the Alien Daily missions.

Enforcers

What the excel spreadsheet does NOT say is that we have listened to the professionals about concerns that Enforcers will no longer be able to "catch up" to their target and we are working on a solution for this issue that the changes will introduce. The exact way we plan to handle this concern is something we will share once we are certain that it works. These are some pretty heavy changes...while

Fixers

The constructive feedback we have received from the professionals has been fantastic. This has been exactly the process we were hoping to work with to get this profession where it should be. I'm actually glad we are putting ourselves through this

Nemesis Nanos

The nemesis Nanos for Fixers and Enforcers should be in these documents...we plan to release the others next week.

On a side note I will be speaking at the Norwegian Game Awards in Trondheim next Friday. This should be a fun event and if any of you are there be sure to say "Hi!"

Have a great weekend everyone

I like the way you've handled level-scaling OSBs.

Also about OSBs, it appears that 4 hours is going to be the norm, which is convenient, but I see a new problem arising:

With the longer durations, getting loaded with the full compliment of desired OSBs is going to be a standard part of "buffing up." This poses a problem in one area, the Battlestation, which wipes all your OSBs. I see this being a deterrent for casual PvP, as some people might avoid joining because they don't want to regather buffs from a bunch of different profs.

Your thoughts on this issue?

Note: on PvP playfield, if you want it to be like BS, make sure you don't lose xp when you die. Just a ton more convenient and I have known several people who figured it was like BS and you wouldn't lose any SK, and they died and lost upwards of 3/4 of a level.
