"..a new president usually means that there will be some significant changes in store."

I suppose cutting their losses and shutting down the game would count as "significant changes," because I'm pretty sure that's the most likely outcome for Alganon.

No one cares about this game! Ppl are waiting for the likes of FFXIV, SW:TOR, GW 2, WOW CATACLYSM, etc.

These small games are just taking up space and wasting money/resources.

@gerkshz: there is plenty of room for indie mmos in the market, they just need to be well conceptualized and executed. errors in either one of those areas will make for a flop.

Wow... the game forums are liable to be more fun than the game now!

Of all the names I never expected to see...

You know I loved me some Derek Smart games back in the day, I remember playing Battlecruiser 3000AD for hours upon hours. While I doubt he can salvage this game, I wish him the best of luck in doing so. Unfortunately I am one of those people that has to try every MMO that comes out so I bought the game, so I will check in on what is going on over there now and then and hope something resembling fun comes out of it.

Derek Smart, "PhD"?

Wow, this just gets better and better.

Ah, the memories. I was an alt.games.pc (or whatever that newsgroup was) fanatic and we had some great times with Mr. Smart.

I was actually always a bit of an apologist for him but he made things very entertaining to say the least.

I'm just suprised they have not shut down this MMO.

Alganon: entertaining as always. A perfect example of how not to launch an mmo.

You foresaw Derek Smart taking over David Allen's place?!??!

Naw, not that!

David Allen having to leave. The guy has pretty much done the same thing to most every game he's been in.

Yeah, I'm not surprised either. I did really enjoy David Allen's earliest games...Mordor and Demise...but even back then the guy had an attitude problem. Having several failed MMO released (Horizons is still kicking I guess, but just barely, and Dominion never made it off the ground) can't have helped.

You just can't make this stuff up. Fact is truly stranger than fiction.

Time for Mr Allen to find another career field.

I'm amazed that there haven't been any Horizons references yet.

It's like deja vu all over again.
