Rockjaw had done a big AMA on Reddit, linky below

not gonna list everything as there were a lot of questions

Do you have any idea when we can expect to hear more details on guild banks / housing?

Guild banks... pretty soon, but my definition of soon is probably different from yours. I'll say before E3 or PAX East, that seems fair.

On the guild housing/ship thing, I've had this conversation a few times with folk in person - the thing is the basic idea seems simple, but the actual reality of doing it can be hugely complex.

For example - and this is entirely me, personally, making stuff up: it's possible guild capital ships could be just open spaces for people to hang out in. Cool, but likely 'not enough' for many people. So then you add on, say, the ability to customize that space. Then maybe you want to move those ships around - maybe put them in orbit over planets, or go fight with other guild capital ships. Woah, did we just add a space combat game? You can see how it easily gets bigger.

The short version: something like guild capital ships sounds super cool and the development team likes the idea. There's a big distance between 'likes the idea' and 'is fully developed and in the game'.


while he does state this is his own idea, the idea that you could use guild capital ships as a staging ground for combat would be awesome. They could implement the guild war feature into it too, make it so that guild capital ships can attack each other and then players can board the ships and fight it out with each other in their own zone.

i do think a guild orbital station amongst the fleet/other planet would be a great idea for a personal space. it would be instanced as expected but should be not to much trouble to make into the game. A space to call our own is what we really need i think.
