I know you're out there - I know several myself.
This is it. Here's your chance.
You think he's a terrible designer, a liar, and a horrible human being. Let's prove it.
For $25, you can help get this game funded and see him put his foot in his mouth.
From what has been said about TOA, Mark was already in a more administrative role - and definitely for warhammer's implementation. Being a studio head is a lot of paper.
So he laid out the initial design for DAOC and saw it to completion. Many people quite enjoyed this.
Then more an more admin stuff, as one might expect, around the time things took a 'turn'
Then he laid out WAR but got drawn up by the EA thing, and we saw how that ended up.
Yes, he takes the fault for that, and as the head honcho a lot of that responsibility is on him - but he's not the only person making these games, and in many cases was probably quite removed from the action.
So here's your chance. Put him back in the driver's seat. If you really think he'll fail it out, isn't $25 worth never seeing him again after this game flops?
What is the worst case? He designs a game that you like and you are wrong about him? Oh noes.
He wins: you win
He fails: you win
