It's not personal desire, that was actually an analysys on Dust 514 market strategy......... read the blog entry if you haven't read it yet

Two years ago I wrote an article in my blog about what I thought was one of the biggest gamble in the gaming industry.

I was talking about the mistakes CCP were making in publishing a game so closely related to the EVE universe that, for a ridicoulus decision taken by some not very clever executive, could not be played by EVE players because it was exclusive to PS3.

I thought that was one of the dumbest decision ever made in the gaming history.

If you care reading the post is here (from 2012 before Dust 514 launch):

DUST 514: Biggest Commercial mistake ever?

The title says it all but the article goes into detail on the reason why I thought it was going to be such a disaster.

 

Anyway after the news of two executives at CCP being fired, the San Francisco Office being closed and the cancelation of WOD, it looks like my prediction were spot on.

CCP is running out of money, and that's despite the fact that EVE is still a profitable game.

The flop of Dust 514 hit them really hard in their pocket as predicted, so much they had to cancel WOD and most worryingly they have no other game in the pipeline in the near future.

Now, I am not saying CCP will close tomorrow.

EVE is still very profitable and after the restructuring of the company CCP will do well for the next few years (3-4).

But apart the lack of cash, what worries me the most is CCP lack of ideas.

I always thought that CCP was the coolest developer in the industry, a bunch of innovators the ones that could come up with the next big thing, and certainly I was really looking forward for WOD.

But after all of this I am asking myself if they actually know what they are doing.

Yes EVE is a great game and it will keep them afloat for a while, but for how long? (Star Citizen is round the corner)

 

PS: By the way if by chance any CCP exec is reading this I remind them what I was suggesting back then in my 2012 post.

EVE+DUST 514 = WIN (That's Space Combat+FPS+Sandbox all rolled into a game there is no such game in the market)

You are still in time and won't cost much to re-code Dust 514 for PC for then merging it with EVE.

I play EVE for 2 months every year but then I get bored of being always in Space, but if I could disembark my ship and fight with my rifle in hands on a Planet I would subscribe for much longer, and I am sure I am not the only one.

This has nothing to do with EvE before - those speculation surface.

This is due to amortization of an abandoned project.

Best of luck to all affected by layoffs - at least San Fran has lots of game studios that are hiring.

 

Correct, it doesn't.

It has everything to do with Dust 514 flop, money that went straight into the drain, as I predicted in one of my blog posts before Dust 514 was even launched.

With that game they basically compromised CCP financial stability.

So what do game companies do to protect themselves from their possible mistakes, or a rogue employee?

1. Game companies do NOT know your account password - yes - Trion has no freaking clue what your account password because it's encrypted in their systems

2. Billing info (such as paypal accounts and CC info) is not kept on any of their systems - game companies do this for security and for PCI compliance. So how do they retain your payment info month to month? - They don't - external billing companies actually retain your info - the game companies just use a secure token ID to associate a user account to external billing company - which actually keeps all that stuff on their secure payment processing systems.

Small correction there.

Game companies (Like any other company) don't need to know your password because the billing department can get access to your account freely and at any time (generally on request of the account holder that wants to change details that cannot be change online).

Having said that, like a bank clerk cannot steal your money from your bank account even if he has access to it, the same can be said for Trion.

Manipulating other people accounts is absolutely illegal, and Trion is a too well known company to do such a stupid thing.

So the reason for this unespected charge could be:

1) You've been hacked. Check if you can still get acces to your Trion account, if you can't that's your answer.

Even if you can, that doesn't exclude the fact that someone else is playing Archeage Alpha with your account.

2)Technical glitch. It shouldn't happen but sometimes it does, even to Banks that spend millions on this kind of software, let alone a medium size game company.

 

What you can do, instead of complaining on a forum is to contact Trion and explaing to them what happened, they will refund the money and they will investigate the reason how this could happened.

Believe it or not is in Trion interest to know potential loophole in their security system or glitches in their account managment software, so you are making them a favor by contacting them.

 

I really hope you contacted Trion before making this thread, it looks rude to me that you take the time to make a post in a MMO forum rather than spend few minutes writing an Email to Trion.

 

Can I just say that the graphics remind me of one of those cheap Korean MMORPGs from 2005?

Once again we see the most ruthless MMO publisher in action.

Closing Tabula Rasa after just few months and firing Garriot in the process, without giving him the chance to turn things around.

Then they shut City of Heroes uncerimoniously, though it wasn't as popular as it used to be, it had a strong core fanbase.

Now this.

NCSoft doesn't take failure gracefully, that's for sure.

I said it many times. The problem with Wildstar is that leveling is ultra casual and enf game is ultra hardcore, there is no middle ground and both player categories are not happy with the game.
The title made me lol. But I completely agree, the stuff they smoke at Funcom offices must be very good.
The reason why the MMO industry got so bad is because players today are so naive. Some of the replies trying to justify SoE are just pathetic. SoE simply do not have a clue on how to make money without alienating their customers, just look at its history. Trion charged £ 150 for Archeage Alpha, the game releases in about a month time and they didn't discount their founder pack, they've been honest with their early supporters. $oE on the other hand can't think straight, it is all about making short term money, they never think on the long term. They are very bad at marketing their products, they never learn.
WAR deserved to die as it was the first MMO that gave the start to this WoW clone craze that is plaguing the indudtry.
You know Bill this is one of your best article.
That's exactly what I was worried about. While people are discussing to death about the Labor Points and the lack of Archeum Dust in the Economy, i believe that the biggest threat to Archeage success is the risk that players might think that this is just another WoW clone.
Well spotted :)

Quest Hubs - Quest Leveling

There is an abuse of questing in modern MMORPGs, to the point they become tedious.

There are so many pointless quests that I don't care anymore to read anything at all, I wish there was a plain "Accept" button instead of the Quest description......... it would save me lots of time in clicking buttons.

Today Quests are just an XP Dispenser

 

Quests should enrich the RPG experience, they should not interfere with the game preventing you having fun (which is what happens at the moment)

Quests should be Epic.......not trivial

There is a huge market for F2P.

What we will see in the future is a come back of the Subscription model though.

people can ask for challenging content on forums all they like but in the end wow was right. Easy is what really sell.

That means you don't understand what is WoW.

WoW has an easy leveling curve and an hardcore end game, so ESO copied exactly the WoW formula in that sense.

Problem with ESO is that unlike WoW the difference between Leveling and End Game is abyssal.

Leveling is stupid easy, End game is stupid hard, while WoW makes this transition a bit smoother particular with different difficulty level for End Game content (Dungeon Normal-->Dungeon Heroic-->Raid LFR--->Flex Raid---Raid 25)

I never bought ESO after playing Beta because leveling was too easy (I was going on autopilot), but I did play some dungeons and they were kinda hard for a regular dungeon, that sort of level of difficulty you can find it in a WoW Raid, you don't expect to find it in a Dungeon.

In the end making end game more easy won't save this game, simply because it is too bland and not TES enough, I own every TES game since Arena (TES 1) but I didn't buy this piece of crap.

TES has always been a quality product, ESO is not, it is just a marketing gimmick............. shame on you Bethesda.

I've returned already.

I've been subscribing for 3 months already and pre-ordered the new expansion.

I passed on both ESO and Wildstar, I am sick and tired of giving my money to bland WoW copycats.

If I have to play a WoW style MMORPG, I might just give Blizzard my money.

Only Archeage could save me from  another  year of WoW.

No you can't avoid him.

He is going to stalk you until you either quit or fall for him....................

Obviously Rift

It is the only MMO that you can fully play free (almost, you have to pay £5 for full AH access)

Everything else is just a con

The term "Sandpark" has been created expressively for Archeage, because it is a combination of Sandbox and Themepark elements.

So Archeage is not a Sandbox............... it is better.

I believe that a successful modern MMORPG should be a mix between a Sandbox and a Themepark, and Archeage is a step toward the right direction.

Lol that's going to hit Blizzard like a train.
You can get that kinda money back only with Subscriptions or a clever Cas Shop system, and we all know that Console players are quite alergic to shell extra money on top of the box price.
Good luck with that.....
Right......... can we see that Demo they are talking about? Maybe that would help rise more money.......... or is it just BS?
