I haven't seen this posted anywhere. Here is the new VIP Roundtable.
This time it's with Brad Mcquiad, Ben Dean, and Ben Walters.
Notably, they address the faction system, the disposition system and alignment, the player economy (they have an economist working with the team), class and hybrid philosophy, level-up design, 4k gaming, and automation. There’s also a lengthy section on group finders; the short version is that yes, the game will have one for onboarding purposes, but the developers consider it voluntary.
