Tom Chilton Interviewed on Warlords of Draenor
interviewed Game Director Tom Chilton at Gamescom, discussing the criticism levelled at World of Warcraft in recent months. You can read the full interview over at
, but we have summarized the key points below for your convenience.
The dev team wishes Warlords was out by now, but team increases and the expansion's size have slowed them down.
Warlords is probably the most ambitious expansion to date when it comes to high level content.
The setting, if it appeals, will bring players back to WoW, but a bigger influence will be the level 90 boost and associated tutorial zone to get you back into playing your character.
WoW still sees "a pretty large number" of new subscribers on a monthly basis. Making the game more intuitive for them is a goal in Warlords
Working on an older game engine requires creativity from developers, and becomes harder and harder as new tech is added.
The Blood Elf design was perhaps promised for launch too soon, before they'd realised how long it would take to get all the models done.
World of Warcraft combat has stood the test of time, but the devs want to make it feel more visceral some time soon
Tom feels that casting while moving, like flying, cost the world a lot in the long run.
The "Dudebros of Draenor" problem was in presentation as much as anything - there are strong female characters in the expansion.
The end-game questing in Warlords will be far fewer daily quests and far more free-form interaction with the world. They're trying to avoid players feeling like they have to do it all.
Feedback from the beta has been a mixture of positive and negative - flying is a controversial topic, and Garrison feedback has reflected the devs' position on the feature.
