First Weekly Producer Letter

First Weekly Producer Letter - MMORPG.com

Newly hired industry heavy-weight Jussica Mulligan offers up her first Producer Letter since joining Nevrax from Turbine before E3. Here is what she has to say:

Last week, we presented the reorganization plan of the Live Content team to the company as a whole. Prior to this, I spent a hectic three weeks just walking around and talking to people, looking at the tools they have to work with, seeing what was in the bug fix queue, asking them what they felt should be our development priorities, creating a list of priorities and reading the forums to get an idea of what the players want worked on. Basically, I wanted to know what was keeping us from putting more content into the game faster and get opinions on how to reprioritize in-house to make that happen. Once I had that input, I created a plan, talked about it with as many individuals and groups here as I could, finalized it and voila!

Without boring you with obvious details, it became obvious that we needed to do some work on our tools, continue to work on content and redesign or upgrade some existing game systems. What we’ve done with this reorganization is to combine all the various “pools” such as coders, level designers, et al, into one large Live Content team, and then create ‘strike teams’ within that organization to deal with specific issues. The purpose of the strike teams is to give motivated and knowledgeable folks ownership of an area and let them work on it to completion.
