After the successful completion of the 400.000$ Fastest Dungeon Raid Competition, and Team Ascension taking the prize, NetEase announces future plans for Crusaders of Light in an interview with Product Manager Stan Wang. Wang granted insight into the development process, the inspiration behind the game, and the difficulties that have to be overcome in creating a full-blown MMORPG for mobile devices:
According to Wang, constructive feedback by the community is crucial for the improvement of the game, and an essential part in bringing MMORPGs to mobile devices. Regarding the limited nature of mobile devices’ controls in comparison to stationary systems, focusing on mechanics like team-like raid-coordination is key. Wang further hints that the future plans of NetEase include new classes and additional content for Crusaders of Light.
