Q&A: Scott Hartsman

Q&A: Scott Hartsman - MMORPG.com

Today, staff writer Carolyn Koh sits down once again for another EverQuest II Q&A. This time around, she's talking to Scott Hartsman:

 

Do the player base tend to request wide-scale changes or changes to single specific aspects of the game? Say change to a certain spell or change to an entire line of spells? Scott Hartsman:

In the case you’ve described, usually not. What happens most often with spells and spell lines is that they tend to get mired up in class vs. class discussion, since many people feel a strong loyalty to their primary class. People almost view themselves as lobbying on behalf of their own class, which of course causes people of other classes to view said efforts as threats and immediately get into direct comparisons.

As a brief aside, that's a big reason why at Fan Faires we tend to not get into class-vs-class style questions at all. These are frequently discussions that have dozens of different facets, and are much better suited to extended debate, taking all of those different aspects into account. Justice really isn't done to them in a two-minute question-response format.
