A preview toward Beta - (Mar. 17th, 2009)

Since joining Quest Online, I have had such a fantastic time working with the community and building up excitement and expectations for Alganon. It's incredible what has been developed over the past three years. We are now well into our third month this year, since we started our efforts in building the community. The best part about working at Quest Online hasn't only been following the excitement and passion in producing a great MMO, but the great relations we have with each other on the team and how all of us are eager to present to you what Alganon is about.

 

 

Most of the articles and interviews you've seen so far have directly involved at least two team members, and our entire staff partakes in reviewing content as they need to. To give you further insight into how things are accomplished, we have regular meetings to prepare for our upcoming beta tests, as well as constantly reviewing community feedback in places like the forums.

 

What can you expect in the next few weeks and what community features will be developed to make this not only a productive beta test period, but an exciting and fun one as well? For starters, we need your feedback and suggestions in tweaking and adding the content you want to see in Alganon! Being the Community Manager, I am particularly interested in understanding what you desire in both community and game content.

 

For example, there was a recent forum thread discussing "Alternative Holidays". Christmas, Halloween, and all those other earthen holidays we celebrate every year will likely have a place in Alganon, but what about "Alganon Holidays"? What sort of holidays do the Frognars partake in?

 

To give you a review and preview of much of the features we have on the table at this time, here is a nice summary listing of what to expect in the weeks and months to come:

Our community is thriving and growing every week as we all wait in anticipation for beta phases to begin. It's fantastic seeing all the new members coming in regularly and voicing their opinions on what they want in an MMO. We thank all of those community members that have provided support for those newcomers! Participate now to make the release of Alganon as great as it can be, but also continue to voice your opinions well after release.

 

As David Allen has mentioned in previous interviews, we aren't resting on release day!

Member of the Month

Syndic brings with him an interesting style and community spirit that is sure to get you more involved in his discussions. A Magic: The Gathering fan, he soon found his way to MMOs, with other genres when time permits.

 

"I started PC gaming since the early 90's but at the time Magic: the Gathering was taking alot of my interest. Later a close friend started to tell me about a new area of gaming with a game called Everquest, Magic soon feel by the wayside. Although I still try to find time for the FPS's and RTS's of the world, the genre of MMORPG's is my true passion and a genre that I hope will grow with leaps and bounds for many years to come."
