Now James Ohlen needs to go with him. He and James Ohlen, I believe both have attributed in the failure of SWTOR.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

Oh my.

Is he under contract and is that a breach of said contract?

Anyway, only a few original team leaders left to purge.

I also thought it was interesting that Gabe isn't the one announcing the new PVP class balance changes, but Austin Peckenpaugh.

I thought it was an alias at first. BW is in Ausin, and  Peckenpaugh was a great Cowboy director.

Good news, but too late.  He was one of the main culprits running this thing into the ground.

Well on one hand I think its actually a shame as he seems a decent person and at least had passion about the game.

On the other hand though when things don't pan out as expected, heads do roll.

All I can say is better luck in your next assignment.

....."So what you're saying. Mr. Erickson, is that you played a major role in the development of SWTOR and now you want to come work for us?!?!?!"

 

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

I regard Erickson as the DEVIL of Bioware/SWTOR. His answers on any critique were always arrogant and "we know all better". I hope his new job will be something useful, like filling the shelves in a supermarket, or delivering snail mail.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

Absolutely. I remember how arrogant and quite obviously incompetent he was in his presentations in the lead-up to the launch of the game - 'I never saw Han and Chewie flying about, did you?' - and pointed out that there was no way in heaven or hell that a game in which he had executive input would come out healthy and was im mediately attacked by a swarm of fanbois who regarded him as a living saint. Well, at last Erickson has got what he deserves.

In the end, the oldest and the wisest of all the developers was Gordon Walton who got out six months before the game was even launched. I guessed he must have seen what Zoeller and Erickson were doing to the game he had steered so lovongly from inception and didn't want to be anywhere near the birth when the game finally emerged.

That was my guess back then about Gordon Walton, he bailed when he saw what SWTOR was turning in - generic WoW clone that pretty much has a chance like snowball in hell :)

*i based that on that presentation he gave some years ago now, about how to make a MMO, maybe someone still has a link.

The whole of Bioware is the reason SWTOR failed. They tried to make a singleplayer game and stick a monthly fee on it. EA too.

Exactly my experience. The gameplay was actually quite fun and the skill structure/build seemed well thought out. It was pretty fantastic to have dialogues and I found it very difficult to get into regular quest monologues or simple cutscenes after having played SWTOR. It was especially cool that your friends could participate in the dialogues. But after a while I just got bored and didn't feel like logging in.

I think SWTOR just was missing that MMO feel. It didn't feel like a world, but very much like a fragmented experience. It's a shame, because it had a lot of things going for it. But at its core its design was just flawed for the type of game it was.

Currently playing: Divinity: Original Sin, FTL, Hearthstone and Skyrim.
Eagerly anticipating: Camelot Unchained, Elite: Dangerous, Legend of Grimrock 2 and Star Citizen.

The Biodrones over on the official site claim that DE wasn't responsible for the catastrophe of the game. They adamantly point the finger at EA, as usual.

 

Hilarious.

 

Erickson, Dallas Dickinson and James Ohlen are MAJOR CATALYSTS IN THE FAILURE OF SWTOR. PERIOD.

 

 

And all 3 of them, as far as I'm concerned, should be fired and strung up by their thumbs. DE being fired is a great start.

 

 

This should of happened years ago. Ohlen and Dickinson are next.......

Does this guy have a fake hair and beard stored away or something? Because I swear the last time I saw him on any videos, he had hair on his head, and other times a beard too.

No, but they do make things called 'electric razors' these days which can remove unwanted hair. Pretty amazing, eh? (JK)

Overall I think this is great news. Hopefully Ohlen is next.
