PlanetSide 2, Sony Online Entertainment's ambitious MMOFPS, has been consistently improved and expanded since launch. We caught up with Matt Higby to talk more about the game, about competitive gameplay and more specifically: the World Domination Series. Read on!
MMORPG: Do you have measures to deal with the balancing the population between empires?
What we took away from Matt Higby: Many people have found this to be a significant issue and unfortunately it's difficult with a large player base to keep track of. While discussing the question Higby brought up the fact that they could lock continents or the population on a server if they really wanted to, but we both agreed that'd have even more issues of it's own. Then outfits would have more issues trying to coordinate since not everyone would be able to get in and you've even got small groups of friends that aren't able to play together now. Balancing the population between empires on each server is a tough task to come up with a solution for, but on the bright side, the pre-season has been a learning experience.
