Surprised there wasn’t already a thread for this. Someone usually starts one immediately after the report is out.
Well. Just a couple of things to say. First, if you watch the first eight minutes of the presentation you’ll see that Funcom is swimming in money right now. Tons of cash on hand, all debt virtually paid off. Cool. That’s great. I’m happy for you. But where’s ours? Let’s jump to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1EsPPhder4&t=12m25s and see what’s said about SWL. The answer is nothing. We’re given about 30 seconds of talk in the 40+ minute presentation.
So what was said about SWL? The devs are working on repeat events. That’s it. Wow. Exciting. More Golden Events, Golem Events, etc events.
What about putting some more investment into the game? Hire some more people. Get further story content out in a timely manner instead of taking over a year to finally get to it. Why not get more end game going? You know, without the endgame we’ll just continue to bleed players. Right now, it’s hemorrhaging. Badly. Really bad. If SWL was a person they’d have bled out by now lying in the gutter. Without endgame to retain people, it’s like a bucket with a hole in the bottom. Doesn’t matter how many new people you pour in, they’ll just drain out the hole when they reach the end.
