    Sorry but you can't compare that.
    You carry any random nonsense from reddit over here.
    Always obvious clickbait.

    Kano is known to have insider knowledge and is therefore a credible source for information.

    We know that Kano has insider connections which are tied to Trion.

    So my guess is Rift or ArcheAge are closing?
    Not just Trion. He knew that ESO was going buy to play before it was announced.
    We at TESOF also knew. Please.
    yea .. this pretty much the world new it was going F2P months ahead the rumors and signs were there..

        If i remember right Forbes predicted it go F2P  like 10 months ahead of time to the day i think ..I was skeptical reading it .. but ..  

       This is going to be anti-climatic :)
    Except .... it didn't that is why you have to buy the game! poor Forbes. Lots of us assumed it would change though. And many of us were more accurate than the Forbes article :)

    As for DM's comments - why doubt them? They will have been provided in good faith.

    I stopped at a Psychic/Fortune teller on the way home.   She said that this week I would have many challenges but also bright spots.

    Was RDR2 one of the bright spots in her prediction?

    Splitting hairs , they spoke of dropping the sub , which it did .. B2P F2p .. same thing but for a few pennies, sub fee is pennies a day, a B2P goes even further

    If this does turn out to be a Trion rumour, I hope its either (wishful thinking I know):-


    1. Rift F2P is closing and re-launching subscription only, no cash shop.

    or

    2. A proper sub only Chocolate Rift server is launching with genuine 1.0 combat that runs similarly to Oldschool Runescape with community voting on content.

    Having been on this site for a long time and knowing the quality of DMKano's posts, I do not take this lightly. I would say that its big and negative so either a closure of a studio, major game cancellation or a merger. It does not mean that it is MMO related either. 

    DMKano - will we know it when we hear it? As in "This is what DMKano referred too because its so huge"?

    I just read in the British Daily Express online website about a fake rumour circulating that Elon Musk has bought Fortnite and is planning to "delete it". The rumour was helped along by Elon himself joining in the joke and tweeting that "it had to be done"

    I'm not talking about common speculation months in advance. He knew it was definitely happening within a week or 2 of the official announcement IIRC.

    All that I can hope for is that EA goes bottom up for good.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

    Unless the United States is banning loot boxes or game developers are dumping F2P + PvP + P2W game designs, I highly doubt there's anything worth creating a rumor mill. However, popcorn is pretty cheap, so I'm game.

    That be against the MMORPG forum rules to target specific users. This thread is no different than the clickbait I was doing. No details no nothing, doesn't matter his past. He could have waited until whatever it is if anything was revealed. Instead this is just as much clickbait as I used to do.

    As an example. I've seen people on here make posts that are genuine and just because of their username the thread gets de-railed by trolling. The user gets targeted by harassment. And I've seen people make obvious troll threads get applauded just cause of their username.

    I don't think this is it.

    Knowing DMKano, I'm predicting the opposite of a Trion failure or game closure. They're expanding their purview. My guess is that they intend to purchase a smaller studio - one with assets that they would like to lay claim to, and potentially fire/restructure the staff of said studio.

    God gets upset that some game that He has been waiting all eternity to play is canceled and so decides to end the universe in an epic ragequit.

    It's easier to predict the future if it's okay to be wildly wrong.

    Everybody knew it was happening and coming , and Forbes nailed the week it would happen 10 months ahead of it ...

    Trion has appeared pretty desperate the past 18 months, with there low budget cheap relaunches/remakes /enhanced / server merges,lay offs , money grabs , that the community is frankly sick of , it would not surprise me if they shuttered some games or sold the IPS off

    Hmmm Daybreak Games gets outed as Russian money laundering Spy front, Sony forced to buy it back or face criminal charges, EA swoops in the chaos and ends up buying Sony, starting an epic buy up frenzy that sees EA own everything from Wal-mart to McDonalds.....

    Is that hugely convoluted and at the same time dreadful,  but does make the game industry more stable in the same way that beige is everyone's favorite colour.



    PS side note spell checker SOD OFF with American spelling of ENGLISH words...GRRRRRR embrace the vowel its not your enemy.
