    LBR NEEDS to have all his ideas looked over and tweaked by other developers. If he's allowed to make all the decisions you get TR...

    Don't forget that LBR thought trammel was a good idea. He still thinks it was.

    Lord British is an idiot and carebear.

    "His" absolutely great PvP System was an accident, he even said that himself, that he doesn´t think that open pvp/full loot has a place in MMORPGs.

    If you want to improve things, hire Designer Dragon, who fleshed out the system afaik.

    *edit* : btw that´s only regarding pvp. At everything else he is a great designer. The Ultima world was so well made, no computer game came close imo.

    No, please don't.
    Don't get me wrong, UO was fucking amazing.
    But oldschool Lord British and new Lord British is completely different. Tabula Rasa failed, hard. Even though it was an OK game believe it or not. And last I heared he was working on "social games" (READ: Facebook minigames LOL).

    NO THANKS!

    Depends on your definition of "good idea". If you mean "will make me millions of dollars", then yes, it was a good idea.

    Screw some old cosmonaut who made a good game 15 years ago. Hire young Russian girls, all the guys in the office will work harder and happier.

    Seriously, they do a good job already, that's why I play this game.

    With girls in the office, they wont work harder, trust me. Instead, they will go to the gym often only to date these girls and talk to them every days none stop.

    Yes, replace Tasos with Raph Koster and Darkfall would have a much better chance at realizing its potential.

    Someone get him on the horn.
