The Daily Grind: Does game currency matter? {Massively}

Nov 12th 2010 8:46AM In-game currency facilitates a number of gameplay styles, and serves as the primary "level-up" progress indicator for those who prefer the auction or crafting gameplay styles.
Also very importantly, in-game currency is a progress indicator for the player, not the character, and it is the primary enabler of twinking.
Lastly, it's a way of gating content other than by level or power.

Cataclysm Beta: Guild ranks can be set to require authenticator {WoW}

Sep 15th 2010 9:34PM @charlie: Really Bad Idea. Part of the inherent security of an authenticator is that the unique serial # of the authenticator app is not known to an infected or hacked PC, thus is inaccessible to a potential hacker. If your PC knows your login ID and now has your authenticator serial # too, all the hacker needs is your password. Once they get that with a keylogger, they're no longer restricted to providing a code in the next 60 secs. They can do it at their leisure because they can generate your authenticator code at will with the same desktop authenticator you do.

Running a Battle.net authenticator app on your Windows desktop is as bad as not having an authenticator at all. Worse, because it gives you a false sense of security. And, unless you're a programmer who can say you've vetted the source code yourself for back-door code, then open-source security software is another Really Bad Idea.

The Daily Grind: Are open betas necessary? {Massively}

Sep 5th 2010 9:34AM Quite a bit gets tested in open beta. It's a chance to test hardware scaling, a chance to get tons of new data for the log parsing and cheat alert systems, it identifies potential bottlenecks in the data paths, and it gives the CS team a chance to dry-run for launch and get their processes straight. And more.

Yes, lots gets tested in open beta. Just not much of it by the players.

Choose My Adventure: Star Wars Galaxies wrap-up {Massively}

Aug 18th 2010 6:30PM @Krystalle: I would go so far as to say that driving all the players away from SWG would do SOE a favour. I'd wager it's not turning a profit, but they're keeping it going anyways. Why? Only John Smedley could answer that, but I think we could all make an educated guess.
