The Daily Grind: Would you want portable housing in your MMO?

For a long time now, I’ve had a very minor wish for an MMO feature: the ability to set up camp and have my tent be customizable in the same way that housing is elsewhere in many games. It makes more sense to me that, as an adventurer always on the move, I’d bring my home with me instead of making frequent return trips to a house on a different continent.

I love this idea. Why aren’t we seeing it more often, really? Star Wars Galaxies and Fallen Earth both let you drop down camps across the world, and Trove’s cornerstones went further with full-on customization while letting you pack up and relocate everything at a moment’s notice. Really, all I want is a tent that has a few basic services, a roaring campfire, and a place to hang up a few trophies from my trip while passers-by drop in for a chat.

Is portable housing in MMORPGs of any interest to you? If so, what would you like to see in it?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
