Credit where credit is due. I have blasted TOR on numerous occasions, but they do get some things right, and they do have some smart people working for them. Case in point: Emmanuel Lusinchi…
“We find that any strategy game is interesting when people choose a role…and need to fulfill that role for the other players. So not everyone is just doing damage. But as a player, your class has a huge spectrum of what it can do.”
First of all, lets just call it right here: he is absolutely right. If the unholy trinity of MMO’s ever does disappear, there will be something needed to replace it. And that is due to the underlying principle that Mr. Lusinchi gets that I think many developers don’t seem to understand: MMO’s are at their heart a strategy game.
That said…it’s really time to change that trinity thing. Seriously.
