Smed was very insistent on the selling power question, it will not happen.

While I'm not really for the idea of any form of a cash shop, I guess I wouldn't mind as long as there isn't a button for it on my HUD. It acts as another stream of revenue, so they'll be getting more money = more content.

Hope it stays that way. I also hope the customizations fit the theme of the game. I don't want to see people running around with pink hats and bunny suits.

Same here, I don't mind cash shop items as long as they are purely cosmetic. I'm also curious if they are looking toward a B2P model instead of a P2P?

Also, the link to the expanded interview is broken.

Hmm, the biggest lesson he learned was to increase the pace? Other than that, good answers.

Hope they keep up their constant communication promise... Higby has been doing good over the last three days.

Re: John Smedley on PlanetSide 2


Good questions, and great answers.

Only thing I still don't get is how Sanctuaries slowed the game down. The only time I spent a significant amount of time in sanc was when I was AFK (and wouldn't have been playing anyway). The other times I went to sanc was to rally and get new vehicles for hitting a new continent with my squad.

We even had the classic "Liberty Rapid Recall" (everyone stands on a boomer) to get back to sanc faster so we could pull vehicles faster. Going back to sanc to pull vehicles was in many cases the fastest way to travel and get to a different fight.

I think Sancs were great for rally points for switching offensives...I really don't see how they slowed the game at all.

Re: John Smedley on PlanetSide 2


Right - you were not forced to go to sanc for any reason. You could spawn at a base and fly/drive to the next fight.

If anything hindered the pace of the game it was spawn points, spawn rate, distance between spawn points and battles, and how quickly one could get to and use the vehicle pad. Tweak those if you want to increaes the pace of the game (and you need to tweak those if you want to increase lethality).

Sanctuaries only helped the game. I don't get the sanc-hate.
