He is a conter strike player and comentator mostly !

So i always have mix feeling about (( pro gamers )) because in order to have (( constent )) experience to not have to relearn new game mechanics! So when they are involve in the developpement process they mostly stop games to moove foward and make them stagnant !

Hope we will not be like that ! i dont like to play the same copy and paste game over and over and over i like to relearn stuff etc.. and seen new thing ad !


thats him

Hadn't heard of him till about 20mins ago when the news article appeared.

http://www.whisenhunt.tv/

Probably the most topical thing we would be looking for.

I love PS2 and the dev team...but...

Seriously? You are going to bring in competitive CS players? Counter Strike plays NOTHING like Planetside 1 or 2. You at least could of brought in the top tier Battlefield players or something.

Or, you know, hire on some well known PS community members...

I rarely complain, this is a time I am doing so.

Yeah this is something I'm waiting for too.


If he actually carries any weight in the direction of the game I think we can all guess which game he'll try to lean it towards...

1.6 is a great game with a very smart competitive community, which is similar to how Outfits work together to take bases and such. I think this is an amazing hire.

I remember listening to this guy explain the differences between CS 1.6 and CS:GO, and it was amazing listening to what he could point out. This guy can pay attention to even the tiniest details, and knows what makes games fun and balanced. Him of all people can make all these weapons and in-game movement mechanics fine tuned perfectly, even if he hasn't played a lot of Planetside 1 it's not hard to know what makes it fun.

Higby wants this to be big in the spectator/esports scene. I can't see PS2 being very 'esports' at all, but it's possible that it could bring in a lot of spectators if the combat/specating is interesting enough, and that all still ties into the esports scene as far as broadcasting and sponsors go.

His purpose isn't going to be balancing the game, it's going to be presenting it as a viable spectator game. Having someone that is knowledgeable within the esports scene have a direct connection with the devs will do great things for the game, regardless of whether you've heard of them or not.
