Great interview! I was disappointed that he didn't answer the "Favorite pie filling" with "Leet of course!" because we all know....leets are tasty!

A question I myself would have liked to ask the gamedirector (I have actually tried. both by emailing several funcom departments, aswell as caling their HQ in Oslo) : Why does players who get their fee converted to Euros pay 1/3 more than those who get their subscription-fee converted to USD?!

one monthly: 14,95 USD
one monthly: 14,95 EUro
1 USD = 0,74 Euro.
allthough not directly related to gameplay, People have left the game over this issue, and I have never been able to get an answer as to why europeans have to pay more for the same service. Didn't have to in the past. one could CHOOSE what currency one prefered to get the fee converted to.

feel free to include that question during the upcoming video-interview :P

I am actually as European as it gets, and am getting charged in USD. Credit card payment magic. :) Isn't it only German direct debit that gets charged in ?óÔÇÜ?¼ + VAT?

French players as well, then. Because I too am pretty positive that 14.95$ do NOT equal 14.95 ?óÔÇÜ?¼ anyway... not with the current conversion rates.

EDIT: Actually, make it 17.19?óÔÇÜ?¼/1-month recurring here. (14.95?óÔÇÜ?¼ + 2.24 VAT).

So where can we pay in $? :P

That WAS the graphics update. The new textures were to show that Rubi-Ka's enviroment were affected by the terraforming done on the planet.

For a full graphics update they would have to upgrade the engine to Directx 9 or 10, which I would think would require a large investment of time and resources, probably stopping any new content for months, maybe even half a year...by the time they re-released the game with a new graphics engine they may have lost too many customers.

Next time ask him why a cult can imagine better armor designs than the edited brown ones they have given us.

Keep the language clean please...
