Featured Article: Jeff Hickman Interview Managing Editor Jon Wood sat down with Mythic's Jeff Hickman to talk about a number of issues including: Rally Call, Career Balance, the game's 10-Day trial and more.

Recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with Mythic Entertainment's Jeff Hickman to talk about a number of different issues that have come up recently about Warhammer Online.

In an article that we published last week, I talked a little bit about my impressions of Patch 1.2, a pretty hefty little update in which Mythic made changes galore. My mission: to find out exactly what the team's "rally call" feature was all about. .

During our conversation, we also talked about issues like: Mythic's current 10-day free trial, balancing careers, and other Warhammer issues.
