    Great interview and much appreciation for being able to get Mr. Koster to give us some incite into the game.

    They did an amazing bit of coding that stands the test of time today. I mean, really, look how much fun it STILL is.

    Very good read. It's always great to hear from previous staff about implementations that never got introduced and what the game could of been to what is is now

    The Rembrandt of gaming who was only ever given crayons to work with. The more I read about LA and its meddling in this franchise the more aggravated I get as I realize what this fantastic work could have become.

    I remember SOE kept saying that their servers were top of the top, best quality, very powerful, etc...

    15 years later :
    "we were blocked by having weaker servers than we anticipated, which led to not being able to do a lot of stuff"

    Truth be told, people cry about sandbox game being gone, but when you talk to them about sandbox elements, they dont like them. There is still a lot of code remaining in NGE that could be reactivated, and would make a faaaar better sandbox game, ill name just a few: hate tef, tef, group tef, perma overt system for military members ... these are crucial elements on which sandbox game stands or falls. There is no smuggling system unless you have enforcable blockades which can only be done with full pvp system and no workarounds or exceptions. Same goes for faction control of planets etc...

    But because people cringe at the very mention of tef and perma overt, with restrictions to cloning, shuttling or space travel, that is why this game will never be a good sandbox. Because people cry.

    Game mechanics has been dilluted beyond acceptable and all that was or is being done are token baits for reward pve addicts that are still in game.

    Sadly it is so.

    Wow, impressive, I hope we can stay in touch with Raph and that he would be willing to continue to share all of the ideas that were meant for this game, it would make the game so incredibley immersive.

    A great read!! It's awesome that someone from the original team is willing to even acknowledge the Legends staff, nevermind going the extra mile and sitting down for an interview! What a great guy! :D
