I just published an article on [REDACTED] about an upcoming topic for Casual Citizen. It discusses what we know so far about the planned slavery mechanic. I was a bit "Yikes!" when I discovered the theme was being included in an MMO where realism is the name of the game. No smoke and mirror content, meaning we're likely to see this play out in living color. Yowza!
I personally don't get the appeal and have to wonder about players who were hoping they'd actually get to detain another player long term for their own amusement. Based on what we know so far, I think CIG's plan to support the capture without long term impact to the captive player is a good one, IF this must exist at all. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the persistent universe during alpha.
What do you think? Is it really necessary to support such themes in MMOs?
