@Thanatos2k: Oh thanatos, stop messing up the narrative with all these pesky facts:)

@Thanatos2k: Of course you are exactly right. I admit, I was a bit angry upon the initial reading of these hack article. I was more concerned about getting the point across that he was spewing lies out of his mouth than giving an absolutely accurate depiction of what happened with SWTOR. But, I think we can agree that his version of events is absolute nonsense and damage control.
Wow, Rob, you managed to get three clickbait articles up in a single day. This and the Kojima "kissing and making up" article are just boiled down repeats of the information already displayed in the EA interview on the front page of this site. You guessed it, all three articles are written by one Rob Crossley.
@xxplicitt: Mr. Moore is well aware of what is going on over there. He just saw an opportunity to use a popular topic to make two articles out of his interview with the EA CEO. Just pure clickbait.
@drugaddict: One of the few nice things I have left to say regarding this site is they don't appear to censor comments. They allowed all mine that attacked the article and even ones like this that say no no words in 2015. I suppose that's something. But since you mention it, when I think about it, that is a strange saying. I guess it kind of compares them to a fighting couple lol.
Disgusting, see the original EA interview for the exact same darn information. I made multiple comments calling out the journalistic integrity of the piece. They manage to two for one the click bait and make an entire new article out of info they have already covered in EA interview article. Of course both pieces are written by the same author. Sigh, can anyone recommend a good startup site. Frankly, I don't care if I get news a bit later because honestly it's all hogwash speculation usually anyway. We never know the quality of a game until we stick it in our respective machines (or download it as the case my be) and form our own opinion anyway.
@skektek: I don't think so, I have actually checked the post history of all the people supporting them. I think they actually believe what they say. There is only one poster with about 40 similar comments that I question. I won't call them out.
Upon careful rereading of the article a noticed another gem. He states that by the "The Old Republic" was ready for release that essentially the only possible profitable way to run an mmo was FTP. Nah, the truth there is you know already you had a dog ready to ship and knew from the start it wouldn't be able to stand on it's own as a sub-based game. I just don't see that FTP is the only alternative. FFXIV stays online just fine with a subscription based service and it is not wow. If you build a decent game you can maintain it with simply subs. It is far easier to build a sloppy one and monetize cosmetic crap and xp boosts though.
