    The writing was on the wall since pretty much launch itself. It's a minor miracle Wildstar kept going for as long as it did after bombing spectacularly. I wonder what NCSoft is going to re-use those server blades for next.

    I knew it'd happen eventually. I spent 25 hours in the game and I did enjoy what little I played of it. Those behind crafting the world clearly loved it.

    It's pretty hilarious though. That's like Feargus firing Josh Sawyer halfway to release, then realising all the POE assets belong to Sawyer not Obsidian, and having to launch with Ayothas the Missing God and the Curse of the Hollowbabies.

    that's a radically different story to what the youtube comments are saying though, it's a case of "being pushed out" vs. "tim cain is a con-man and a jerk". in the former tim cain is the victim, the latter he's one of the bad guys

    I don't know the first thing about this game, but if Cain really pimpslapped the MMO players, devs and publisher, that is :lol::lol: Almost as good as when Boyarsky ruined Diablo 3 for its tard fanbase by adding too much incline and C&C:mixedemotions:

    This reminds me of SW:ToR (releasing with broken shit WoW fixed, or attempted to, couple of expansions ago). Just how retarded can you be as a dev that when you copy a game(in both cases WoW) to not evolve your design docs with the game you clone and not learn at least from their obvious mistakes. The pop drop when Blizzard listened to hardcores at start of TBC and the over the top response that followed should have been obvious to even the most casual observer, nevermind some designer tasked to copy 90% of the game.

    I was also surprised by this news in that I didn't think the game was still alive.

    Has anyone ever said anything bad about Tim Cain before this? Besides maybe he's a little too passive?

    Heh, should have worked for Crate, because it turned out nicely in Grim Dawn.

    Roguey would be the one to ask, but this is the first time I've heard of a clear accusation against Cain.

    Well, he was the game's design director and he left in the middle of its development.

    At the time, Codex was maybe too busy celebrating his return to single player RPGs to think about it, but usually that happens for a reason.

    I won't pretend not to feel any schadenfreude at this game shutting down, considering how much its fanboys shat on every other MMO before their Messiah was released.

    Good riddance, so much for their hardcore talk.
    They had some good ideas and had a good opportunity but they failed on all fronts.
    I really hope this marks the death of "Wow Killer" genre.
