Interesting post on PvP from Quest Online

Nightvision's response to questions in "PvP Phase 1 is released" thread.

All-in-all, it's an interesting read.  Here are some highlights:


  • They're trying to attract players who won't play a game with no PvP

  • They're designing the system to be fun and engaging, but not mandatory

  • They're sensitive to PvE vs. PVP balance changes and take that into consideration when balancing abilities

  • PvP is not a bolt-on - it's going to be fully integrated into every major game system

Conspicuously absent, however, was any acknowledgement of my pay-to-win factor concerns.  I've posted them twice on the official boards and several times here, and haven't ever seen an official response.

    • They're designing the system to be fun and engaging, but not mandatory (fluff)

    Also wanted to add that I've read your posts on the forum and theres some good advice about current game issues. Not coming back until they work on their so called 'free'-to play shop model >.<

    Well, just because we didn't respond doesn't mean that we're not reading and listening. I read all those posts and discuss options with the team on a regular basis. We just can't ack every single forum post as that would be time consuming. Rest assured, we're listening.

    Game developers are just human beings who happen to make games for a living.
    If you want to hold us up to higher standards of conduct, then go ahead
    ...but don't be surprised if we don't uphold them.
