How to design a game economy
Posted by Psychochild's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2012, 7:14 pm
Okay, I made a big deal about the economy of Guild Wars 2 and how I did not view it as a fun system supporting to the game. Given that there was a lot of discussion about this, and that I'm an MMO designer, I figured I should post something detailing what should go into the design of an MMO economy. What are the goals of economic design? What are the important factors? What should be avoided?
