Two posts in one hour? Oh no, I’ve been possessed by Syp!
Elder Game’s Eric Heimburg wrote a great piece, Warcraft Live Team’s B Squad. which examines the outflux (yes, it’s a word! — it is now, anyway) of A-list talent from WoW, and how the B-team seem to be a little overwhelmed. I was particularly interested in his AC2 experience of what happens when the big names go off to work on something else and the probies are left in charge of the now-moving 20-million-ton superMMOtanker.
Unlimited cosmic power, in MMO terms, must be used wisely. (And probably comes with an itty bitty cubicle.)
For an interested outsider like myself, this type of insider commentary and anecdotal insight is fascinating; I figured you might like it too, if EG isn’t already on your reading list.
