Die Crew von coh.coldfront hat ein neues City of Heroes Interview publiziert. CuppaJo arbeitet als Associate Community Coordinator für das Entwicklerteam des Superhelden-Titels und beantwortet einige Fragen über seine Arbeit und die Community des Online-Rollenspiels. Cuppa hat schon vorher alle großen MMORPGs gespielt. Angefangen hat er als Technik-Supporter bei Nightshift. Schon einen Monat später ist er zum City of Heroes Team gewechselt.
Do you have any MMO background before City of Heroes? If so what games have you played and what was your basic impression of the worlds you were involved in?
Some friends of mine got me started in MMOs with UO, EQ, and DAOC. UO was my first, just an introduction more than anything. I was amazed at the size of the world and the community. By the time I saw UO it was in its fourth year and of course there were players who had been there the whole time, as had the friend who introduced me. That impressed me.
EQ and DAOC I spent some time with, but I was very much a "casual gamer." My main impressions were that grouping was like herding cats and since I am directionally challenged, that getting around was hard for me. Between travel times and getting lost I spent a great deal of time wandering aimlessly. CoH had me from the start because it was easy to get around, easy to group (even with people who were higher level), and just so much fun right out of the box.
