Ruining It For Everyone Else Since 2004

>Will wonders ever cease?

Ladies and gentlemen, news has been made.

Man, this really made my day.

Meanwhile, there are people who still want the guilds to remain in control, even though this is OPEN SOURCED. But I guess when you have butt cheeks as ear warmers, it’s really hard to hear little details.

And now we arrive to my favorite part of the post. The part where I do comment commentary!

All I want to know is, will there be a way for Cyan to tell THEIR Uru story? Uru is more than servers and source code.

They’ve tried and failed 3 times.

And then Eleri came back and said:

This is innacurate. Cyan has yet to fail with Uru. The failures have been with Ubisoft, for not taking the game out of beta; GameTap, for not having a clear understanding of the marketing needs for promoting a game like Uru; and the economy, for taking a turn that caused the revenue for MORE to dry up. None of those factors have been in their control, and they’ve had to struggle under the constraints and limitations. Sometimes they stumble and fall, but they, at the least, have always tried, even when their support system has come crashing down.

Exactly. The failure is on the shoulders of everyone else. Just as Adam comes back and points out:

So, let’s blame Ubisoft for making a rational decision–they saw the writing on the wall and jumped ship before they lost money. Let’s also blame GameTap who promoted Uru like no tomorrow! They gave it a chance, saw it wouldn’t work and bailed–like any sensible person would. You completely missed the third failure. Cyan closed UU, the most long-lived publicly available Uru online experience. Cyan is the only constant in these failures, so where should I lay my blame?

I think your statements are the inaccurate ones.

Sure, GameTap promoted Uru for over a year, but that’s not good enough! When they gave it up after a year, they became AntiCyantologysts. And I refuse to deal with anyone who thinks on a plain of reality. it’s too realistic, there’s too much fact and not enough gut. And that’s what I go by.

Well, looks like I’ll have to do something else rather than tell people how to play the game since now it’s open source. Keep an eye out for the GOGU to making it’s debut. 😉

I would say that I don’t think GT advertised as much as they could have. However, I think they gave it a good faith effort. I’d still like to one day see a mix of fan-created and Cyan-created content (similar to how you have Half Life 2 and Garry’s Mod). It’s the start of something big, though. I look forward to the challenge!

That’s true. It was advertised a lot, but not on a wide span of channels. Thus mostly attracting GameTap asshats that only know how to speak n00b. And a few who actually like the game.Better put on your seat belts everyone! This is gonna be one helluva ride! With PIE for everyone!!!!
