It looks like there are some bad news coming from Ncsoft. Almost the entire NCwest staff in Seattle has been wacked, and numerous other staff from their other companies. It has also lead people to think their Seattle office may be shutting down.

Rumors have now been going on that Ncsoft will be doing a major 'realignment', putting all their studios under one house. I guess we will have to wait and see...

This could effect all off Ncsofts games including GW2.

The insider word on the street was that GW2 was underperforming, this pretty much confirms those rumors. 

I hope all those affected land on their feet - layoffs during holiday season is just heartless.

lol, as soon as i read it on massively i knew you people would be quick to attribute it to GW2 instead of CoH. Arenanet isn't downsizing, in fact they have more employees now. these were people working on otther NCSoft products.

 People were saying that when Paragon was closed and City of Heroes closing was announced.  Do we have any real facts regarding GW2 underperforming?

NCSofts revamping of every game as free to play shows their desperate twisting and turning to try to show some sort of profit.

I remember from the very first NC game I played (Lineage 2) I got the sincere feeling they were not customer oriented. 

In AION the game was so imbalanced from release that every single server on the network had almost the same outcome.  (One faction had 4 times the amount of  world bosses -spawn 1 time a day- as the other faction, and that faction dominated the other in all outlets of the game due to gear imbalance)

Guildwars 2 had so much potential, another poster summed up how I felt in the game as an underperforming weakling as opposed to an influential hero.

 

NC has always shown to be unimpressive and typically inundated with Bots and no desire what so ever to please paying customers.

ALso, if NCSoft and A.Net both have offices in Seattle, why not merge the two.

 

People really want to see GW2 fail. WHY? I never understood the attitude of some people who gleefully jump up and down when a game goes south.  Seems to me, if it was their lively hood that went south, they would want people to at least have sympathy.

none at all, but who needs it?

 

in fact in spite of all the hate and hopes for failure aimed at Anet, the real fact of this situaton is that they are likely merging NCSoft West INTO ArenaNet...lol.

You can say that about alot of companies.

 

I have never had issues with NCSoft and they were very helpful when I had GW1 issues. They were johnny on the spot.

Their games in general are un-rewarding time sinks.   Lot's of time invested with absolutely nothing to show for your efforts.  They set before you a really challenging ladder to climb with nothing at the top.  Can you name 1 NC game with entertaining end-game content?

What a bunch of corporate asshats. They could have at least waited until after the holidays to lay people off. I can't imagine having to go home to my wife and tell her I got laid off right before Christmas. Merry effin' Christmas indeed.

I don't see how GW2 is underperforming.

Granted, I haven't been playing it lately because of planetside 2, but that aside, the events (holiday or no) generate so much cash.

In my guild, there were people dropping hundreds of dollars on the cash shop in order to try to get one of the rare "item graphics" for their weapons.  --I wouldn't do it, but to each their own.

They have had at least 2 events now with special skins and players have dropped enormous amounts of money attempting to get them.

Granted, these 6+ guildies could be the only ones doing so, but I have a sneaky suspicion that many others do as well.

I just don't see how GW2 is under-performing, but perhaps I am just missing something, which very well may be.

I am entitled to my opinions, misspellings, and grammatical errors.

if anything, they're killing off their low profit studios in NA before they end up costing too much and a botaload of those employees will be picked up by O'Brien and friends. either way MMORPG.com's anti-anet circle jerk is again a fail.

Guildwars 2 really entertained me.  I played slowly and leveled slowly.  My friends zerged to max level and almost immediately quit the game because there was nothing to do once you got there.  I decided not to waste my time and have not logged, although the game itself is enjoyable.

 

Theres a certain amount of us adult game crowd out here that want to be able to do something once we get to end-game.  I admit GW2 was the most well rounded mmo gaming experience for the leveling content I have ever seen, but if there's nothing to do after you finish leveling, what's the point?

 

I also have this complaint about a few other titles, by other publishers as well, but NC is famous for this crime.

This. No knowing what the underlying reasoning behind it all is, no particular game can be blamed. But this kind of action at this point in time sounds like execs desperately protecting their christmas bonus's. It stinks.

LOL What do you guys think NCSoft = Microsoft?  I promise you it's not a multi-billion dollar corporation where cigar smoking fat men in suits sit around and decide how to spend all their profits.

 

All of NCs american released titles have missed their projected targets.  All of their games have had to go free-to-play because of dwindling subscriptions.  A company isn't in business to pay people wages and benefits theyre in business to make a profit.  Companies set budgets and projections and if they don't make them they cut their losses.  The epic failures of their North American projects are a bleeding wound to them.

 

Also, Christmas is a (commercialized) western holiday primarily, and I doubt NC is thinking anything about their corporate Christmas bonuses.

 

I just am thoroughly amused at the anti-capitalist sentiment being blasted here at a company that clearly isn't performing in a healthy way trying to cut it's losses and stay in business.

 

I don't even like them or their games, but I find myself sitting here defending them as a corporation for trying to make a business decision.  Also, who will want to do business in the USA come January?

Well, I'd be surprised if GW2 fails anytime soon.  It's a good game for $50.  But then again, I have not bought a single thing off of their store.  Nothing interests me.  What would interest me?  How about purchasing functionality.  Examples...

 

1) Housing

2) More armor skins

3) Sell appearance tabs

4) Sell the ability to change your character appearance.  The current system is bla.  I suggest it would be an optional functionality you could add to your house.  A mirror in your bedroom that would allow you to change your appearance any time.  Charge $15, only good for the character you purchase it for.

5) The ability to send items coins to other toons.

6)  The ability for level 80 characters to transfer experience to alts.

7) Hair packs. 

8) Face Packs

9) Emote packs.

 

Bla bla bla.  These are just a few ideas.  Charge $15 for each one.  Housing opens the door to a lot of things, like furniture, decorations.  Honestly, I have more creative ideas in my toe nails than their entire store team.

The NCSoft stock is taking a beating today.  Also, a savage article appeared in The Korea Times that criticizes NCSoft for the CoH closure:

These are great ideas, but you have to be showing profit in order to pay your crew to do the development.   After a multi-million dollar failure, most people aren't going to want to invest more money for the sake of making a few nick-nack transactions.
