Guild & Personal Reputations as the 'Most Important Currency' Anyone Can Have
The latest Mondays in MMOs has been published on the Saga of Lucimia site, this time with reputation as its subject. Not only does the post delve into each player's personal reputation, but also that of collectives like guilds. Developers are invested in "bringing back to the MMORPG genre with our own title is player and guild reputation" and will work to "ensure that community toxicity is kept to an absolute minimum". Part of that might include a public forum section for the community.
We want to avoid the disruptive “I’m the only person that matters in the world” type of players who make everyone else’s lives miserable, and ruin the fun for those just trying to hang out in a virtual world and explore adventures in that space.
