They should have a special prison for development teams that butcher AWESOME IP. Below I rant about what I believe are the top 3 IPs that would ever have a chance at having a long lived MMO player base comparable to the goliath that which is WoW.
Warhammer Online - I would put the original development team on a 10-15 year term in a medium security prison. The 2nd dev team to take on the project I would probably give them 5 years in a honor farm or minimum security fascility because really, the game was already doomed before they took over but they really went backwards with the game by creating more of what people were not asking for.
Star Wars - (SWG) I would throw the people responsible for this game's demise in the basement of a maximum security prison (life sentences) where the worst of the worst go. (OLD REPUBLIC) I would just issue a warrant for arrests and have a judge hand out cease and desists because really? You think an arcade style flying, linear and que style like WAR will be good for Star Wars franchise? You're out of your freaking mind. Oh and everyone' can play a Jedi? Ya thats terrible.
Lord of the Rings - You people would get a 30 year sentence in medium security prison. Your game is too similar to WoW and your inattentiveness to your player bases' suggestion are negligent. Housing is there but boring, PvP is there (and should be) but boring. Your joke of a f2p system is laughable and ends up making the player pay more than they would have if you just started charging them from the beginning, FRAUD.
Thank you to the three top IP development teams for ensuring the ongoing success of WoW. Shame on those of you who truly cared about the IPs but did not have the backbone to stand up and speak out against rogue developers responsible for destroying what could have been masterpieces.
AS AN MMO GAMER I FEEL RAPED/ROBBED/DEFRAUDED there is no epic IP left to look forward to.
Oh ya, FFXIV developers...there is no prison for you, you deserve to dig your own graves and stand in front of a firing squad. No prison is shitty enough for you and what you have done to the Final Fantasy Franchise.
