Please read the following before jumping to conclusions: What We Currently Know About the PWE Deal (Reddit)

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

 

Source: http://iportal.infoc...&LNwsId=2293206

 

As someone who played STO both before and after PW purchased Cryptic, I feel I have to voice my concern over this acquisition. Warframe is a game with a huge amount of potential, and having PW pulling their strings behind the scenes is a surefire way to destroy that potential.

 

I'm not sure that there's anything you (DE) could do at this point, but I would applaud any efforts made to stop this from happening. Even self-sabotoge to make the company seem less desirable is not out of the question.

 

(For those of you who aren't familiar with PW, acquisition by them will dramatically shift development away from new gameplay content. Instead, expect development to focus on a plethora of obnoxious, obtrusive lockbox and other lottery-type systems)

 

EDIT (for those looking for a more legitimate source, this is the stock exchange release):

EDIT 2: For those of you still in doubt whether or not this is real, more links:

 

Bloomberg's Businessweek company profile which lists DE as starting a "merger/acquistion" on June 30th: http://investing.bus...vcapId=52344383

Even IF this is real or IF it happens, I highly doubt DE will allow any sort of meddling with Warframe or anything else. They've already experienced that with Dark Sector, and the whole reason they are self-publishing is because they want to do Warframe on their terms.

I stand by my statement. If you've ever heard the way DE describes Warframe and how they plan to approach it from an independent development cycle, you'd see what I mean.

Spoiler

 

 

Threadnaught Prime cooled down.

 

From the souces and the explanations I've read, it's very unlikely that DE will sell the whole company.

 

So we can get back to Salad V's greedy milk now.

 

To lower the chances of PW even participating in DE, sign this petition.

 

https://www.change.o...rtainment#share

 

And OP, ask the ComMods to lock this thread. It's causing chaos in the forums.

 

And remember guys/girls, no more complaining about RNG!

 

One more thing. STOP with the no-login BS. You're just helping PW this way.

DE are you seeing this, the reactions?

 

You won't have anything left, you will lose both your game, and your gamers.

40 day "trial period" thingy ...

 

Still, if I read that correctly, the Dev's have no say in the matter unless they are shareholders.

(Which in a logical world would be so, but then: It's the world we live in.)

I'll leave in an instant if they bring in that same Lottery Box & Gambling cash shop garbage like in every game they're linked to so far.
