u try to hide the devil in details ! if a company screw up first who is responsable is the boss! MA is the boss here!So .. by that you're saying that Planet Partners have no direct responsibility to the players for their actions.
That - rather than expecting the Planet Partners to be competent at designing their own product, and simply integrating that into the platform - MindArk should retain sufficient staff to go over all the PP content with a fine tooth comb AND decide on any final balancing before any of the PP content is introduced (ie before they can realistically assess the actual effect on the universal ingame economy).
Real-world businesses can't even do that too well in the real-world economy (or they wouldn't have so many product failures).
From what I've heard, debugging the work of others can be much more work than designing/coding something from scratch.
In which case, why would MindArk bother having Planet Partners, if it would be easier (and presumably cheaper) to do all the work themselves and not have to share the income?
when we deposit we sent the money to MA not to PP's! if i dont like what a PP does i dont go to his planet! (Toulan for example who is already almost empty)! but when i dont like what is happening in game i take it to MA!
