The Daily Grind: Which MMO studio is best at communication?


Community management has got to be one of the most stressful jobs in the industry. After all, there’s nothing like throwing yourself to the lions, day after day, and being the front-line buffer for their discontent and slavering fangs. So I do admire those crazy people who take up CM jobs for a living. More so when a CM goes above and beyond moderating the fans to being a strong communicator.

Today I want us to focus on those studios and CMs that somehow are above the grade of other MMOs when it comes to communication. Do you see devs and CMs in a particular game constantly engaging the community, being open about studio decisions, and keeping everyone informed? If that happens in an MMO you aren’t playing, doesn’t that cheese you off?

So which MMO studio is the best at communication with its players?

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!
