AGDC: Making the Grade Guild Panel Video

AGDC: Making the Grade Guild Panel Video

One of the best panels at Austin GDC this year was the Guild panel. Chris Mancil of Trion Networks moderated five of the top player guilds on stage and gave them an open forum to discuss MMOs.

John (Deyth) Shkolnik (Guild Master, The Combine), Dan (Bonedancer) Moore (Guild Master, Sinister), Rick (K’dahbruh) Fields (Guild Master, Shadowclan), Robert (Hades) Hiett (Guild Master, Lords of the Dead) all spoke about their likes and dislikes of MMO game play. Some games take a beating in this panel, but the pure thoughts of the player shine through.

If you missed the panel here is your chance to listen to open player feedback at a developer conference. Many of these guilds are hardcore and PvP focused. Still they give voice to the MMO community as a whole. The panel is definitely worth a listen, especially if you are a game developer.
