New Editorial - Ramifications of Factions Success

 posted by: Magi on Thursday, June 1 @ 7:16 pm

Our very own Community Manager of Guild Wars LQGaming, Magi, has a new editorial on the success Factions has had. In it, he discusses what content was added, how Guild Wars content compares to other titles and whether or not the no-subscription model will be embraced by more games in the future. A snippet is below:

If I were to suggest that the folks over at ArenaNet had a gun to their head when developing Factions, would you believe me? Some would say yes, others no. I suppose some credence can be given to those who would say no; what does a franchise that has had so much success have to worry about? Think about it: though subscribers aren't really tracked, Guild Wars surely boasts one of the largest user bases (which I think can be partially attributed to their no-subscription model) in the business today. Alternatively, as I've eluded to in previous editorials, Factions is the first real test to the no-subscription model - this is where the gun is to ArenaNet's head - so the question then becomes thus: did the team pass the test?

Check it out and thanks for all your submissions Draxonfly!

New Editorial - Good Grief

 posted by: Magi on Wednesday, May 31 @ 6:03 pm

Our very own Skyy High returns again this week with another solid editorial, this time looking at the issue of "griefers" in Guild Wars. In this piece he identifies the kind of griefers that plague our game and ways to deal with them. A snippet is below:

This editorial will be a bit of a break from my usual focus on the game itself to the more general topic of the players. More specifically, I want to focus on the (seemingly large) segment of the population who are classified in one way or another as "griefers." There are many other names that these players have been called at one point or another - "n00b" would probably be one of the very few that wouldn't trigger the profanity filter - and they exist in every single facet of the game. Yet, for some reason, we continue to treat them in exactly the same manner that we have since, well, I suppose griefers have existed. But that's too large a topic for one article, so I will stick with this one particular game, how griefers manifest themselves in it, and most importantly how we can deal with them.

You can read the entire editorial here.
