Never buy a game that I havent played first.
So if there is no free trial or a F2P option I wont pay for it anymore.
If you note now -- lots of companies are following in the SV model. Release a paid beta of a shitty game and when it comes to launch, who cares? Look at WarZ for a perfect example -- and sadly SV is the pinnacle of this terrible programming, WarZ made it onto Steam and then got pulled. So even if MO made it onto Steam by some miracle, it would get shortly pulled by people getting screwed over.
The biggest benefit we can have from this whole mess is to show SV close down, Sebastian and Henrik never get a job in the gaming world again, and at least we can say look -- crime doesn't pay. Realistically it would have happened a long time ago, had it not been for Henrik's dad funding the game development. The company can't stand on its own, it needs a sugar daddy to keep it afloat.
