    They did say that paths will have real world abilities that can be used in combat so a turret could be what they were talking about. It could also be refering to upgrading towns adding turrets to defend against attack. I find the second unlikely since a higher level playing could then go into a lower level area and put up a terret or a lower level player going into a higher level area and implacing a turret that would be worthless at the player level zone.

    Hey Gaff, how important is optimization for the beta right now for you guys?

    Hmmm. Optimization wasn't very important to us early (we do a decent job of tuning, Hardware Compatability Lab had good results, and you want to optimize late for efficiency), but we did hit a few areas of the world where there were folks reporting lower framerates than expected (beginning of Algoroc for instance, which ran well on our hardware lab not in beta). Beta testers helped each other through the spots (through turning off a default addon and a NVidia control panel setting, as well as going out of windowed mode) but it is spurring us to do more optimization in this and the next milestone to prevent other issues.

    You see that kind of stuff in beta (it's why you test) but it's good to fix it before really scaling up beta significantly.

    Hey, all - one final post in our patch notes mega-thread:

    a) It was tons of fun!
    b) We set a new thread record for WSC which is pretty awesome.
    c) We'll follow up patch note releases for future beta milestones with similar Q&As around the web with NDA-friendly sites.
    d) Of course, I and the Carbinites will continue to frequent here and other forums to answer questions. So don't stop askin' - as often as possible we'll drop in after work and answer what we can.

    Thanks guys!
