All the fault of World of Warcraft, before WoW, the gamer was generally the smartest person in the room every time. Geeks, nerds, the math and science wizards. Blizzard made gaming mainstream blitzkrieg marketing it to all walks of life, especially the stay at home mom's. Little known fact but WoW actually had a direct negative effect on daytime programming ratings, women turned off Oprah and their soap opera's and started buying computers and video games, Blizzard is directly responsible for women now being a larger market share of the video game industry than men. I will never forget my wife opening her Cosmopolitan magazine and WoW having a 4 page center spread, right there between make-up for date night, and how to tell if your man is cheating. Blizzard literately had WoW on EVERY talk show, late night show, sitcom, in every publication, on every prime-time network ad block. Blizzard were masters of promotion and marketing and flooded the industry with 30-40 year old stay at home mom's that were suddenly the center of attention of a crap ton of horny young 20-40 year old geeks, WoW was responsible for TONS of affairs and divorces, word quickly spread that online gaming was the place to meet guys that fawn over women. It was insane, the fights between friends over women was epic, it was definitely ho's before bros for those first few years as guys that had never had a girl even look at them before were suddenly in deep online relationships with hot horny milf's. That was the beginning of the end.
Too late they had their chance, uninstalled and won't be back, You can't slap people with the outrageous blatant criminal greed they hit people with then suddenly be like ok all the whales are pissed and quitting so we will be reasonable now. So what just fuck the people who paid $20 each for epic fusions, now that we are changing the price? Yes so screw Funcom hope they all choke to death on their own disgusting greed.
