I'm quite interested in finding out how space combat handles. The Massively interview said 'smaller scale', so here's to vicious dogfights in zero g over controllable nodes. The interview also stated that you have some disdain for gathering/crafting type activities. While not not an inherently incomprehensible remark, it does mean that the motivations behind the whole planetary battle will have to be novel in some manner. Most MMO's with conquest-like gameplay award massive caches of resources or goods and the rights to harvest them to the victors. I assume the carrot on the stick with Line of Defense will be different?
