    I don't back down from anyone. He knows who I am, so what. I also knew he is working on his day off, however if you truly love your profession in life. You don't give a **** what day it is. He built the WF's, so he is the perfect person to ask a legitimate question about siege castles in Rift.

    Due to the fact that I built every Warfront aside from Alt Mode Codex and Alt Mode Black Garden (and not the seasonal one either), I'm pretty sure I'm qualified to add these as I see fit and that no one on my team is going to get upset with me for doing so.

    In addition, serious game content like a new warfront should NOT be thrown together on a spare Sunday. It deserves a lot more thought, planning, discussions and iteration than this.

    Please restrain yourself.

    First post in the PvP forums?


    I'm sure Daglar is capable of doing his job.



    you know being the lead dev and all.

    E. None of the above.

    I'd rather you find some way of fixing this lag on deepwood. The event Swarn of the Century is so lagged. 15 secs before any ability goes off.

    My understanding of Rift's history is that, up to a point, they encourage devs to do stuff they feel passionately about if they are pretty sure it won't seriously break things. "Might fail utterly" is okay, as long as you can turn it off/revert it and have the game back to normal. So, actually, as long as the risk of severe game balance problems or exploits with long-lasting impact is low, I think the team's usual practice is, sure, go ahead and add stuff on a whim on your own time.

    Furthermore, I believe Daglar is the guy with the most PvP development work, so he's probably the person he'd go ask about this.

    The other thing to consider is: I have known a fair number of game developers. And I would be totally unsurprised to find that these ideas, and others, have been knocking about in his head for days, weeks, or months, and have already been discussed with other people at some point.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    The problem is not that a dev makes content on his spare time. The problem is that Daglar is now also the one who makes all decisions. Normally, his work would be vetted by his lead and planned and discussed within the team. Not anymore.

    This particular case may not actually be a problem, but as a veteran in the game industry I have seen serious company problems arise from similar things before. I'm worried about Daglar's leadership style.

    I'm an altoholic: Thirteen 60 clerics, eleven 60 rogues, eleven 60 warriors, five 60 mages, etc...

    You must have missed the in game update telling everyone they were working on the lag.

    Not really true. I love programming, but part of loving it is learning that if I want to do my best work, I have to remember to have some downtime now and then.

    He built the WF's, so he is the perfect person to ask a legitimate question about siege castles in Rift.
    That is totally true, but I haven't seen a legitimate question about siege castles. I've seen someone attack him for spending 30 seconds goofing off on the forums during a several-hour project he undertook in his free time in order to help people out. And the thing is, the project he's working on here is clearly very carefully considered to be small enough and isolated enough in its impact that it actually gets done. Because an alt-mode warfront now is a heck of a lot more useful to the PvP community than a siege castle feature which might show up in a year or might not and we aren't even sure whether people really want it.

    Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if the real answer is "siege castles can't be usefully implemented until we've restructured the game fundamentally in a way that addresses the flaws of our two-faction PvP server rules".

    You took a snipe at him for making a joke. Then you said he's not the right dev to ask about sieges. Now you're saying he's the right guy to ask a legit question about sieges. Contradict yourself much?

    Pretty stoked to see some new modes on the maps.

    My only inquiry at this point is whether or not they'll count toward Guns for Hire if they happen to pop on a Random queue. Unless that already came up while I was away. Then oops, sorry. >_>

    On the plus side.... at least you are working with maps that are currently in game and just changing spawn nodes and what not. Saves a lil more time than having to remodel terrain and what not. Though both are just as time consuming as the other, sadly :-/
