Talk about the Station Exchange whitepaper is making the rounds on the blogosphere. It’s actually quite nice to see SOE open up the kimono a bit and show us some numbers that could have remained a trade secret.
Of course, there’s one quote that everyone is picking on:
Station Exchange is not an extension of game play. It is a utility. It offers a fundamentally different approach to play: a means of skipping the boring parts.
Unfortunately, people seem to be missing the point and using this quote to reinforce their pre-conceived notions. I figured a bit of discussion is in order, particularly from an actual EQ2 player. ;)
