Debate: Crafting

Posted Feb 11, 2006 by Dana Massey

Debate: Crafting

The debates continue. This week Frank MIgnone and Garrett Fuller go toe-to-toe on the issue of crafting. Frank hates crafting and its impact on the economy of games. Garrett disagrees. Read on and then let them know what you think.

Frank Mignone: I have a rather unpopular confession to make…I hate crafting. Primarily, I hate having to rely on other players for 'the best' items in a game where I cannot compete without them. It can drive the economy crazy because greedy gatherers charge whatever they want for their recourses, and crafters pass that extra expense, along with their own need for greed, along to me, the poor sap who need weapons, armor, bullets, guns, etc. Frequently, the crafter is the gatherer, meaning they answer to no one but themselves. Next thing I know, I have to farm for 2 days to make enough gold to buy a piece of armor that will last maybe 2 levels!
