  • Very surprised how much you guys seem to dislike this score. Whereas lively soundtracks like WildStar are a lot of fun, I most appreciate ones like Warhammer Online, ESO (love Brad Derrick), SWTOR etc, which pick a particular tone/style and truly work on making it cohesive and consistent. That's good world-building. By the way, if you guys haven't seen this video of Brad Derrick composing for Warhammer Online, it's a must-watch. http://youtu.be/7_ujHHVfYdU
