"There are countless unwritten rules for creating an MMO world that successful designs in past games have impressed upon the entire industry.

There are times when working with MMOs can be a bit of a mixed bag. You get some hate-filled feedback, you find that one of your major hobbies is now part of your job, and you're either a shill for the company or you're overly negative. And then there are times when you get to run the newest City o...
