Deceived Cinematic TrailerBioware has released a new trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic, depicting the attack on the Jedi Temple during the Sacking of Coruscant in the game's lore.

Watch the Deceived Trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic

 

This week in the Free Zone, Richard Aihoshi looks at single and small group play styles in free to Play MMOs.

Many serious MMOG fans think of the genre as being defined by guilds, raids and other elements that involve bunches of players doing things together. It's true there's no feeling in gaming that truly compares to multiple groups working as one to take down a boss, or to battles with dozens or even hundreds of combatants on each side. However, that's not necessarily the way most users actually play.

A lot of people either prefer the play style sometimes known as massively single-player, or spend more time within it than they might think. I doubt that there's anything approaching a universally accepted definition of this term, so for the purposed of this column, I'll use mine, even though it's something of a misnomer. When I refer to MSOG play, I'm not just talking about soloing, but also small group play similar to what you'd experience in the online mode of a standalone game.

While at the Login Game Conference Carolyn Koh had the opportunity to chat with Richard Weil, Community Director for the youth friendly MMORPG FusionFall.

On the second day of the LOGIN conference, I had a chance to visit with Richard Weil of Turner Networks, Community Director for FusionFall, the kids MMO based on the world of Cartoon Network characters.

I was curious to know the direction in which Turner was moving, with the recent promotion of Chris Waldron to VP of Gaming for Cartoon Network. “It’s a good thing,” said Rich. It’s a consolidation of divisions, a bringing together of all the games under the leadership of Chris Waldron. The former Executive Producer of FusionFall will now also oversee games planning and games development strategy for Cartoon Network. Waldron’s appointment was only announced at the end of April, so it’s very much a transition period right now, but I could see the conviction Rich had that for Turner, computer games would be moving and shaking under Chris Waldron’s leadership.

MMORPG.com A Tale In The Desert Correspondent Clarence Krueger II writes this look at monuments in the unique player-oriented MMO.

One of the more unique features of ATITD involves the monuments. In each telling the citizens of Egypt strive to achieve the raising of seven monuments. This goal is no easy task. In ATITD there are seven disciplines with seven tests to each discipline. These seven disciplines include: Architect, Art & Music, Body, Harmony, Leadership, Thought, and Worship. In each discipline there are seven tests and seven related ranks. These ranks in order are; Student, Prentice, Journeyman, Scribe, Master, Sage, and Pharaoh's Oracle. The overall goal for any telling is to have at least one citizen of Egypt achievement rank of Oracle for each discipline. This is just the beginning of the task. Once an Egyptian achieves rank of Oracle in a discipline, they receive the option to build a monument. This is a major undertaking that involves all members of the discipline in all ranks. In all, one hundred and twenty seven people are needed to build one monument. This must include the Oracle who will design and organize the building of the monument. Furthermore, there must also be two Sages, four Masters, eight Scribes, sixteen Journeyman, thirty-two Prentices, and sixty-four Students.

MMORPG.com Warhammer Online Correspondent Michael Dennis writes this look at the various statistics in Mythic's Warhammer Online.

Please note all the numerical amounts provided have been worked out by the game's players and, while they represent a very approximate estimation, are not confirmed by Mythic and may vary. All relevant, known equations have been included.

Statistics are the numbers that measure your character's physical capabilities. Depending on what kind of archetype you play, e.g. melee DPS or tank, different statistics will be prioritised. There are sixteen statistics (or stats) in total that cover every aspect of combat in the game, this article covers the eight primary ones. Stats come into play every time you attack another player or NPC and every time you get attacked. They determine the damage you take, the damage you deal, the healing you do, the amount of hit-points you have; so, even though you never need to "activate" them like your abilities, they are behind the scenes playing a very active part in almost everything you do.

The latest dev blog out of CCP looks at the addition of a host of new agents in EVE Online.

Since Apocrypha, one of the ongoing efforts we've been undertaking in Content is the renovation of old missions and deadspace areas. Part of the incentive for this initiative has to do with the fact that a lot of this stuff has been sitting in the game for years and simply needs some freshening up. Just as we've renovated all of our graphics and effects in the last year or so, now we want to make improvements to content. EVE has always been, and must remain, beautiful.

As an example of the sorts of things we're working on, some legacy complexes have literally scores or even hundreds of structures in them, most serving little purpose other than to clutter up the overview; similarly, some missions have massive numbers of small, fast NPCs in them, which is a nuisance especially in level 3 missions and beyond (and of course also increases server load). So we've been sorting through old dungeons, changing out, rebuilding, and reducing the numbers of structures; tweaking NPC numbers; and so on, all with a view to making things run more smoothly.

Mythic has posted a new Grab Bag where they answer questions about the Land of the Dead in Warhammer Online.

Q. What will be the Ward requirements to do the instanced lairs and dungeon bosses? What is the Ward range in the live expansion?

A. The Land of the Dead content comes in three different flavors if difficulty: Public Quests, Lairs, and the Tomb of the Vulture Lord dungeon. The Public Quests in the Necropolis of Zandri will not require any Wards. The Lairs will require Lesser Wards (the same as city sieges and Forts), which come from Bastion Stair and Tier 4 Keeps. And the Tomb of the Vulture Lord will require Greater Wards, which are earned from Forts and capital city dungeons.

It’s important to keep in mind the changes coming to the Ward system in 1.3 that will allow for much greater gear choice flexibility; once you unlock a Ward in your Tome of Knowledge, it is applied to your character, regardless of whether you are wearing the armor that has the Ward on it or not.

The folks at Pirates of the Burning Sea have posted notice of changes to their customer support policies and the reasons behind these changes.

The last time we did a Customer Service devlog, Nutch mentioned some changes we were implementing to the CS department to improve communication and response times on support tickets. Those changes helped us clear a backlog of tickets and allowed us to respond to new support requests much more quickly. Since then, I’ve taken on the role of CS Manager here at FLS and with the guidance of Nutch and Misha, am carrying on what they started. I’d like to talk about a few recent changes we have made to further improve the level of customer support.

As you may be aware, our in-game GM support was originally outsourced to a company located on the East Coast of the US. While they were able to effectively monitor support tickets, there were sometimes communication challenges between our internal Customer Service team and theirs. This could sometimes lead to service requests taking too long to be resolved.

Cryptic Studios has released new information on the Excalibur class ship, one of the vessels that will be available to Starfleet players in Star Trek Online.

Updating the iconic profile of the Constitution class, the Excalibur is the first of a group of new, state-of-the-art cruisers intended to fill a variety of roles for Starfleet.

Designed with the modular construction favored by the Starfleet Corps of Engineers, the Excalibur can tackle almost any task. Its expanded cargo capacity and advanced warp core make it an ideal solo exploration vessel, but it also performs well as a support ship during fleet actions.

During times of peace, the Excalibur class is well-suited for cargo or transport missions. Its massive holds make it invaluable to Starfleet, which uses the Excalibur class extensively to resupply planets, space stations and other starships. It has enough power to run industrial replicators non-stop, and is often the ship of choice for missions of mercy or rapid evacuations. Crews on Excalibur-class ships can convert cargo bays to temporary housing in a matter of hours, enabling the Excalibur to carry as many as 1,100 passengers in an emergency.

The folks at Darkfall have posted reassurances to players after an ill timed server crash at the end of a city siege put the results of that siege into question.

Last night, after a siege was concluded, there was a server crash due to an unrelated issue. This created a rare condition where the city ownership change was not fully saved by all storage subsystems.

Any such inconsistency in the data is automatically corrected by the system during the scheduled maintenance window which unfortunately happens to be several hours after the fact. We've checked and we see that the siege results will be saved during the scheduled maintenance. While this kind of automatic correction happens for all things to maintain the stability of the system, this happens to be a major event and we feel obligated to inform the interested parties: City ownership will be automatically finalized during the data consistency checks within the scheduled maintenance window. This means that the city will be owned by the winner of the challenge.

Obviously it was supposed to say jacking out. I assure you all that humorous typos are in no way related to the fact that this is my second last Friday doing this monkey job.

Frogster has announced that the world of Runes of Magic is about to get bigger with the game's next patch, Return of the Ice Dwarf Kingdom.

With the new large Patch 1.7 “Return of the Ice Dwarf Kingdom”, Frogster will soon deliver additional new game contents for Runes of Magic. Among other things, this update enlarges the world of the online role-playing game with new expansion potentials for guild castles. Moreover, the instance “Ruins of the Ice Dwarf Kingdom” is extended by a high-level area with new boss adversaries. The release of “Return of the Ice Dwarf Kingdom” is scheduled for 3 June 2009.

With this update, guilds can, for collected resources, erect special buildings in their castle yard. Step by step, these guilds unlock more and stronger constructions from the technology tree. Thus, the workshop is available only after the erection of a school, and powerful rune towers are available to the guilds only if they have considerably advanced the expansion of their castle. All buildings grant the guild special bonuses, from enhanced riding speed through the potential to mine resources up to powerful defensive works, which are in turn tactical elements in the planned guild vs. guild wars.

Players at level 50 can now plan new trips to the “Ruins of the Ice Dwarf Kingdom” again. So far, the dungeon was conceived for adventurers at levels 35 to 40, but this update extends it by a completely newly designed area for high-level groups with new bosses and, of course, new rewards.

The folks at the Matrix Online recently announced that players would be jacking out for the last time as the game is set to close down for good at the end of July. To clear up lingering questions about the shut down SOE has posted a Q&A.

As you have recently read in Dan “Walrus” Myers producer letter All Good Things Must End, The Matrix Online service will be discontinued and the servers will go dark on July 31st. After 4 memorable years of sharing amazing stories and epic adventures with a wonderful and dedicated community, we saw how deep the rabbit hole went and it was time to write the final chapter of the story. We understand that there are many questions and will do our best to answer them here.

What happens to all the code/data for The Matrix Online?
Sony Online Entertainment and Warner Brothers will retain all of the code and data from The Matrix Online.

Can someone open an emulated server for The Matrix Online?
Sony Online Entertainment and Warner Brothers hold the copyrights for The Matrix Online stories and data so creating a fan owned and operated emulated MxO server would be against those copyrights.

Mythic has announced that Game Update 1.3 for Warhammer Online has entered its second phase of testing on WAR's public test server.

We are continuing the Public Test of Game Update 1.3 starting tonight. During this phase of public testing we will be introducing even more Combat & Career changes and adjustments that we've implemented in large part due to outstanding player feedback during phase one.

In Phase two we will be introducing the Realm Resource Quest which controls which realm has access to the new Land of the Dead. Players will receive one Expedition Quest item from each player kill, which can be turned in to Expedition Quartermasters found near the Flight Masters in Capital Cities.
