    everyone is starting to leave, not suprised. This could also be a false person making a random account saying that.

    Honestly, based on some of his comments and decisions, it would have been better for the game had he left sooner in my opinion.

    Although BioWare was pretty far into developing what is unfortunately a pretty medicore mmorpg in most respects (at least in my opinion) EA seems to have pretty much gutted another developer.

    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    That probably means that there will be less story and more other MMO features. Not that I am happy about it, as I absolutely love the story.  Oh well, only time will tell....

    And... BioWare Austin  is actually hire people now... check

    Not that I care really I mean, In my eyes I still see it sinking no matter who leaves the company and who joins, I know the direction the game is going after seeing a few months of it, not very well thought out trying to tear down blizzard.

    Nothing can tear down WoW, only WoW can do it to itself /shrug.

    I don't really see any interesting titles coming soon, people are already slowly bored of GW2 and MoP seems to be not as succesful as was supposed to, I  noticed at least on my server in last couple days lots of players in chat saying that they just came back  /shrug

    I guess we shall see if BioWare can deliver updates as promissed, time will tell.

    We are looking at different things, the problem isn't so much of the updates or content. You really think I'd be back on swtor when makeb and cathar and hk51 come? Gotta be joking.

    I haven't gotten bored of GW2 yet, I haven't seen anything quality just yet. Still waiting on SWG 2.0. BioWare will do what they have been doing, they don't lie, they hope and deliver. Nothing they deliver interests me a bit, all I see enjoyable in swtor is the epic animations.

    SWG 2.0 is not coming... Get used to it:)

     

    PS. Lots of people like SWTOR, me included. The pessimism around the game sure taking it's toll though.

     

    PS2. And as nothing interests you in SWTOR I have no interest in anything GW2 delivers. We all like different things. Lets all get along /grin

    He had this coming. Hes one of the main reasons, amongst many else, for the failure that SWTOR is.

     

    Good riddance...

     

     

    Next up hopefully is Jimbo Ohlen. These two guys were principal catalysts in SWTORs mediocrity....

  • AmbrosiaAmorAmbrosiaAmor Miami, FLPosts: 915Member

    Yeah I think all of the “high profiled” folks have left the building except for James Ohlen. I’m not sure if there is anyone else still working on the game from pre-launch (upper management).

    Yeah, it's not particularly "new" news, but still.  Sad part is, he'll get hired on somewhere else, and be given more chances to create games that suck.  There's something about game industry managers/designers/executives that makes it so that they can all royally screw things up to no end, yet still get hired by new companies.

    You make me like charity

    Are there enough lifeboats for the crew?
    What will be the final song the band plays as the ship sinks?
    Who will be in that band?
    Will the captain go down with the ship?
    So many questions fill my mind.

    Heh. If people really think that SWTOR or BW will be gone soon like within a year or so, they should bet some serious money on it. But I think none will do that, bc deep down they know it's more wishful thinking than a realistic belief that those'll cease to exist anytime soon.

    They can hire as many people as they like, but Bioware are no more, without the main people who have left

  • FrodoFraginsFrodoFragins Manchester, NHPosts: 2,931Member Uncommon
    The people most responsible for the failure that was the final product have left the company.  Big shock there.  BW never should have made an MMO.  They clearly didn't understand the genre.
