In one of the longer convention videos the COO of Cryptic (when talking about the foundry) opens up a screen that has aution house stuff, foundry, instance/raid timers, and crafting timers (which he mentions). So there is crafting to some degree (at least as of the video sometime mid-late last year). He states something along the lines that you may check to see if your crafting process is done.
MMO Vet since AOL Neverwinter Nights circa 1992. My MMO beat up your MMO. =S
Originally posted by Draemos It'll probably be half assed like it is in 99.9% of games. At this point it might as well be phased out of everything but sandbox MMOs
Hrrm... can't help but feel cynical and fatalistic about MMO crafting as well.
Gaming trends move too quickly for the pace currently obtainable for innovative AAA products to go from concept to launch. In natural marketing terms, development adjusts to demand; but right now the gaming world is in the middle of an ongoing experiment to effectively shape demand through concentric design and development in imitation of its behemoth cousin: The Movie Industry. Not surprising, actually, when even a brief look through the history of modern industry titans (Telecom, Banking, TV/Cable, Music, Art, Fashion, etc.) shows pro-active shaping of general demand (or outright manipulation, if you prefer).
But the video game market seems resistant to this type of top-to-bottom influence - as does the Internet itself.
Technology and Innovation have differing wave lengths; I look forward to the next Synchronization in MMOs.
I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg
