It seems they understand that they NEED to advertise the game better. Interestingly enough they did hired some folks back.

    They brought back 3 people...  

    Not to be too negative, but probably the ones that couldn´t find work elsewhere and were willing to come back at reduced pay.

    I don't know if this is common practice were Funcom is from but in the US almost no person would have waited for that position, they would have definately moved on.

    Good news. Joel is a kickass type of guy. It seems he has firmly taken the reins.

    i listen to that podcast and its nice to hear that theyve decided to concentrate on the story elements instead of the end game raider niche..those people are like locust. id be glad to see them move on to something else..as locust do.

    Yes, they should also remove pvp all together and focus on what they are good at STORY!

    whoooa. I strongly disagree!! lol

     

    The ability wheel is a pvpr dream. Just give us something to do with it. Like a pvp server! Yes it would fit if they made it fit, skip that argument.

    the head guy said in the latest podcast interview that it would take so much work to restructure the servers and the game engine that its not gonna happen. They cant even protect us from mobs during cut scenes much less griefer pvpers.

    image I find the pvp will end up being build wars, there is no room for balance with so many abilities. So, if unbalanced build of the week is what you like then I guess this game is your wet dream. If that is case they don't even need to balance armor and stats for players.

    Side question. What podcast are we talking about here? The only podcast I know for TSW is the CGN one. Is there another?

    We promise and declare that never, ever, under any circumstances work on less favorable terms, or at a lower salary than what we have now promised each other.

    We promise each other that in the deep realization that if we all keep this promise as the employer must meet our requirements!

     

    While it is Norway and not Sweden it still is not US.

    I'm so broke. I can't even pay attention.

    yeah in that podcast the guy said that those laidoff get paid 60% of their salary by the government for 1 year or some such.
