I’m sure that a number of you are trying out Crowfall’s beta and experiencing its special design of allowing players to jump into and out of different “vessels” — or classes — much in the same way that online FPS titles might allow for player choice.
Class swapping is certainly one way to extend player interest and options in an MMO, especially if you want to focus on a single character’s progression instead of encouraging a legion of alts. Final Fantasy XIV features this prominently, but such a design is not very widespread in the MMO space.
What do you think? Should more MMOs offer class swapping? Would that benefit or hinder these games?
