“MERRY CHRISTMAS, WOLFPACK. NOW WE WANT SOME ANSWERS, DAMN YOUR EYES!” [Author: Lum the Mad]

J over at Crossroads of Shadowbane once again puts forth questions to anyone listening over that ever-existential question, is the much-hyped Shadowbane going to get literally everything right?

The dirty secret here is that other companies would do well to see how they answer these questions as well. Even if J only has eyes for Aracroix.

Even if by some miracle of talent, Wolfpack’s managed to achieve relative balance, will players be able to recognize it? Will they ever have reason to abandon that old mindset, or will be be just as useful as ever, even if it isn’t true?

And what are battles going to be like; when it isn’t one on one, it’s 40 on 40? Not only will players have to figure out how to play defensively and pick fights accordingly, the possibilities of warfare, or any sort of event that requires the participation of many players at once, may truly be endless.
