Battlestar Galactica Online: PvP Interview with Sarah Levantine

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 23,001MMORPG.COM Staff Epic

Late last week, Bigpoint and Battlestar Galactica Online developers announced that a new PvP system was coming into the game in the form of ranked battles and instanced PvP duels. Industry Relations Manager Garrett Fuller caught up with BGO's producer Sarah Levantine to talk about the big announcement. Read on!

What is it about the instanced matches that you think appeals to players?

At its core, BSGO is a space combat game. The instanced matches give players the opportunity to hone their dog-fighting skills and prove their superiority, one-on-one.

    I wonder how the population is now.  I tried this game during beta, and absolutely hated it due to the controls and what not.

    I gave it another try after it came out of beta,  to be honest I am surprised that anybody plays it at all.  However I recon the die hard bsg fans love it.

    To bad the game is almost 100% PAY2Win if you wanna get anywhere, if you don't be prepared to spend months bored out of your effing mind trying to get anywhere. Lets just say the game is so bad I can't be bothered with it and I am a BSG fan. They got the combat right, but the rest of the game just sucks hard. Though it does look really pretty for a browser MMO.

    Its a shame they could have done something far better with the franchise insted of what it turned into.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)


    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    When they say ships of similar class they of course mean that since there are cash shop versions of ships with a similar weight then the pay2win elements of the game are still in full force.

    It's nice to see you literally never change, Bigpoint.

    lol, huh? This is a new addition, but another broken one. Why even announce this feature here when the fixes that have been accomplished are more noteworthy? Arena/Duel feature is entertaining for some but not for all and can hardly be construed as "added content" when, well, let's face can get tired of it quickly.

    Chat still needs fixing, faction and class balance needs some love, oh, and more content needs to be added, otherwise we're all going to be bored to tears in a matter of months playing this game.

    I went ahead and tried this game out since I'm a huge fan of the BSG series and I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.  Seriously, a cash shop/p2win browser based MMO was the best they could come up with for such a well regarded IP.  Now they're adding arena combat?  What a newsworthy item to talk about. :eyeroll:

    With every update something gets broken. LOL! And these idiots figure that it's now time to ditch the beta label as well...saying how they are so proud to do so. I wouldn't be very proud of a game that's technically in it's Alpha phase and saying that it's ready. I mean, seriously, they're still figuring out what will work or not for gameplay. I think the developers aren't properly supported by the company they work for. This game seems to be a sinking ship to me...
