Economy - It’s All About the Players!

Gloria Victis

Production was an integral part of medieval society and was inseparable from the day to day lives of those that lived in that period. It was a time of self-sufficiency where everyone had a rudimentary understanding of every craft. However there were also those that truly excelled in a specific craft and made it their profession – the fame of these masters would spread far beyond the borders of their nation and men from foreign lands would come to them looking for their products.Posted Jul 30, 2015

A World of Possibilities

Gloria Victis

Gloria Victis isn’t just a one of the MMOs you can see nowadays – it’s a game set in a Medieval open world, with a strong focus on realism and immersion, giving the players as much freedom and fun as possible. So who you can become in Gloria Victis?Posted Jul 16, 2015

Exploring the Combat System

Gloria Victis

As an MMORPG set in a medieval world, Gloria Victis must inevitably focus on combat. The main idea was to base it on player skill instead of the character’s statistics or equipment, contrary to the classic MMOs. To achieve this goal we decided to use a Non-Target system, so the player has to manually aim their attacks at the opponent at the right time, from a proper distance and direction, adjusting the strength of a strike as well.Posted Jul 9, 2015

How Albion Online is Combating the Zerg

Albion Online

As anyone who has played online games for any length of time will know, the territory comes with its ups and downs. One common issue, especially with resource-based open-world games that allow for PvP, is when players form into large groups and trample their respective countrysides (or space stations), obliterating everything in their path. Whether you know it as 'blobbing,' 'zerging' or by some other name, you're sure to have run into it in one form or another.Posted Jun 25, 2015

New Jewels In Your Pocket -- It's Time to Socket

Wizard101

The Socket System idea was born on a cool evening in late 2010, in a game mechanics discussion over root beer on a patio with a KingsIsle Designer you may know as Decius Duelmaster, from Pirate101. What’s cooler than being able to customize your Wizard even more? The more and more we talked about it, I knew a feature like this would be a huge hit. I was super excited and started talking it up to folks around KI.Posted Mar 24, 2015

A Time For mADDness!

Elsword

The Skies: Crucial Changes During Development - Are They for the Better?

Developing a game project of this size poses many challenges - from thinking over the backend architecture to the in-game economy system and more. Sometimes critical changes happen in the middle of development process. Are they for the better? It depends. Let me give you an example of several challenges we faced in developing "The Skies" world and, ultimately, our decisions.Posted Jan 2, 2015

The Skies: Developing the Game Step-by-Step - Where to Start?

The Skies

When it comes to the question "Where do you start in developing the game world?", I have a rather standard answer: everything begins with the idea and then thinking over the game world in detail. In contrast, when I was writing the book, "The Skies", I wasn't thinking of the game in detail. The world and the storyline were appearing while I was writing and I actually didn't know what it would be fully until the end, so the story revealed itself over time.Posted Dec 26, 2014

Quest Pacing - The Long & Short of Quest Design

Moonrise

In our recent article on building our Quest system, we intentionally left out a big, complicated chunk: pacing. We did this for two reasons. First, it’s really big, messy subject, and second, because we wanted to save it for the folks over here on MMORPG.com, so that you know you are forever precious in our hearts.Posted Dec 17, 2014 by Andy Collins
