The death knell has rung:
As the article states, Funcom is actively attempting to sell the company and its games.
I don't have much good to say about an organization that willfully released unfinished, broken, and in some cases absolute bait and switches to its consumers. The Age of Conan marketing lies and its subsequent abysmal launch are a perfect example of their blatant practices in this regard.
I do not wish ill will towards the hard working employees who attempted to turn things around there but I am glad that the horrible management involved will be wiped away with the blight of its name. Funcom will forever be remembered by me as the "cool idea but horrible execution" company. Hopefully this serves an example to the industry that eventually, even if not immediate, that terrible anti-consumer practices will eventually spell the death of any organization.
I have harbored a long standing grudge against this company for the way it appalled and insulted me with the launch of Age of Conan. I feel relieved today that justice was borne out in the end. The world will be a brighter place the day the doors are locked on these scam artists.
The relief may be short, however, as we see liars like Erling Elingson embark on a new endeavor. I will continue to hold steadfast and vigilant wherever he snakes off to. I ask all of you to do the same.
I will never forget. I will never forgive.
