Mini Q&A #7 -

The seventh installment of our Tactica Online Q&A series runs today with four more questions and answers from Luke Carruthers, the head of Imaginary Numbers, which develops the title. Tactica Online mixes RPG and turn based tactical PvP combat into one unique title and is poised to take the shelves by storm this winter. Since most of Tactica’s content revolves around player vs. player encounters, how will you deal with issues like people quitting or timing out at key moments?

Luke Carruthers: Disconnects are the bane of every online game, and that’s even more true for one that revolves around direct competition between players. You have to allow for them, because sometimes people do legitimately have network problems, but there’s no real way to distinguish between a legitimate disconnect and a player deliberately trying to avoid a loss.
