Published

on

You know that story about the “Game Master” from Helldivers 2, inspired by Dungeons & Dragons? Well, “poor” Joel needed help. After all, it's one thing to run a tabletop RPG for friends. Another, completely different, is to command an online cooperative shooter with peaks of more than 400 thousand simultaneous users.

Arrowhead's community manager, Baskinator, spoke about the subject in a conversation with fans on Discord. When asked about the GM position, she responded that there was an adjustment in the team.

“That's why we made an emergency expansion of the GM team. He's just a person, and he just wasn't sleeping. I remember during the weekend of the release, he was texting me at 4am because we were the only ones awake. Unfortunately, our scope was much narrower at launch. We expected fewer players and easier means and methods of communication,” he commented.

As for specific details about how the system works, Baskinator said his work includes conveying player feedback to Joel and his team and further mentioned plans to provide “deep dives” into the system – such as allowing Joel to directly address the community.
