Hey, you know what would make you an incredible MMO PvP gamer? If you would just start reading the mind of your opponent already!
This is, incredibly enough, the subject of today’s befuddling Crowfall developer diary. In it, the team discusses the Japanese concept of “yomi,” which is knowing your opponent’s mind. “All the complicated decisions in game theory go away if you know exactly what the opponent will do next,” the diary pontificates.
What the diary does not state, however, is how one is supposed to go about developing yomi or exactly how Crowfall’s combat will be designed with yomi in mind other than a vague reference to counter-moves between power trees. But when you do figure out how to become a master of yomi, would you let us know?
