Title: Player Generated Content - COH
Post by: waylander on April 25, 2009, 08:40:03 AM
Player generated content passes all dev generated content within 24 hours (http://www.massively.com/2009/04/18/city-of-heroes-player-created-content-surpasses-devs-in-24-hour/)

Since there's a forum for this game I put this here, but honestly its a good discussion for mmorpg's in general. 

NWN from Bioware gave me a good feel for player generated content.  Most were good, some were great, and some were horrible.  But over all it was a good system that gave a lot of life to the game, and helped keep it feeling new instead of seeing people get bored rehashing the same content over and over every few levels.

I would put in a survey at the end of these things and the players with the best content each month would be rewarded with some free game time for their efforts.  But I don't think I'd give players any reward beyond this, and I'd only give them a free month per individual mod that got voted to the top.

It will be interesting to see where this leads, but in theory it could lead to a lot of content to keep players happy while freeing up dev resources to work on balancing, new systems, etc.  Overall I think its a good move, and if done right perhaps other games would follow this direction.
