With just a few months of live service under their belts, the team behind Warhammer Online
has already distinguished itself with quality and innovative live events. Heavy Metal
, the Reikland Factory
preview, Keg End
, Witching Night
... all new looks at old holidays, highlighted by the game's unique Tome of Knowledge
system. Crispy Gamer has a look at the creation of these events with Mark Davis
, Mythic associate producer and live events designer. Davis talks a bit about Mythic
's philosophy behind creating these events, and notes their high level of popularity with the playerbase.
Their popularity isn't hard to figure out. Offered Davis, "[WAR is] all about the bragging rights. Players like to show off how powerful they are or what accomplishments they've unlocked, and this is one way that they can show how cool they are."
We at Massively have definitely enjoyed the events they've offered up so far. What about you? Which Warhammer
live event has been your favorite? Any holidays you're particularly looking forward to the team tackling?
