|Overview:||Legendary: Game of Heroes has undoubtedly been a LiveOps success story, grossing hundreds of millions of dollars and delighting millions of players around the world. However, as it approaches its fifth anniversary, original Lead Designer Ethan Levy can't help but think of some foundational mistakes made early on in building the game. He highlights these weaknesses as a means of exploring the idea of a 10 year economy for free-to-play games, and gives a clear rubric of the questions to ask oneself when embarking on a new F2P game to ensure that your power economy, currency economy and content pipeline are all architected for a decade or more of success.|
