Funcom's Joel Bylos on the centralized TSW, AoC, and AO team

By now, most MMO gamers are pretty familiar with the fact that Funcom underwent restructuring. But what does that mean; what exactly did it entail? The term "restructuring" in itself signifies changes but does nothing to actually enlighten folks on what the changes are. Other than the fact that...

Jukebox Heroes: Eleven MMO soundtracks you can get for free
