There are different aspects to a video game that must be taken into account when developing it. Developers have to go far beyond anything that a normal player might consider. For Epic Games and their MOBA title Paragon, the economy of the game is important. For them, the economy of the game helps make every decision you make important, and they went into great detail into how Paragon makes use of its economy through player actions.
For you see, in Paragon, the point of the game isn’t just to win, but it’s to level up your characters and gain new cards to use in battle. The higher your level, and the more cards you have, the better you’ll be, and the faster you’ll take down towers, beat the Prime Guardians, and achieve success.
But also, the economic state of the team itself is important in gameplay. As you advance in each match/level, you’re affecting what the other team has, and by extension, what they can do. You’ll want to take on your opponents and roam their areas so that your resource pool rises while theirs falls. Plus, where you stand economically will affect how the game progresses. Low resources on both sides will mean that certain phases last longer. On the other hand, a quick spike in resources means that other phases will begin much sooner.
So as you can see, there’s a large economy in Paragon. It’s one that demands your attention, or else you might be caught off guard. Epic Games notes that for every character in the game, the economy will mean something different for them. Some characters will have a focus on leveling up, while others will be more focused in card point retrieval. It all depends on who you play, and how you play them. So be wise when you play Paragon, becausen there’s a lot going on in it.
