Will NQ staff be barred from participating/playing? Should they be?

Will they maybe manage some of the quests?

Will they set up some rules? Or will the game be total anarchy (with NQ setting up some safe zones)?

 

I think those are some important questions.. Do we know the answers to these yet?

As far as we know, NQ just developing the Game.
We pay them for maintain the servers, making this groundbreaking technology even better every day, free updates, free DLCs and free addons.
Everything what has to be done technically is NQs part.
We the players make the rules, the storys, the quests, the organizations.
Its our part to have Ideas in this Sandbox. NQ just gives us the sand and bucket and the frame around this Sandbox.
Big organizations will establish rules in this sandbox and wage wars to enforce them.

 

But should NQ dev Members be barred from playing DU?
I say no, but... NQ must have insights of what happening and of what the players building and how they do it.
Not only to improve gamemechanics, but to make DU working well.
NQ should not be allowed to get involved competetively. Not even if they dont use theyr admin rights.

This happned in EVE Online recently and the guys working there got fired immidiately.
NQ can learn a lot from this. And im sure they got internal rules for that.

NQ might have beginner quests/jobs, but otherwise there is supposed to be a player job board.

 

There will be safe zones where pvp is not possible, and the rest being open pvp with territory control and conquer gameplay

I think it is very important that at the bare minimum their testers actively participate if no the developers. You example of Eve is a major one. After the T2 mining bpo scandal and barring Eve from developers, only caused the dev team to have  a hit or miss expansion features  releases on top of being out of touch with the reality of the meta. The result is a stagnation of the game to some degree and a bigger incentive to minimize major losses.
