Subject: Dynamix On The Chopping Block
Ok, as if it wasn't bad enough that Tribes2 was so buggy when released, apparently the greedy bastards at Sierra have put Dynamix on the chopping block. Here's the scoop from one of the anonymous developers:
It is true that the lot of us were locked out of the building today. Why this is happening nobody knows for certain, aside from those in upper management at Siera/Vivendi. The whole thing is quite a shock for most of us, aside from those few in upper management at Dynamix who could not manage the meager bit of human decency that it would have taken to give us a warning. It is like that in corporate america, these people really do not seem to have come equipped with a soul. I blame the 60-70 percent of Sierra that has nothing to do with creating anything but instead leech of the top like a bloated lamprey. Not only are they the cause of this situation, but they are the ones that stand to benefit in the short term whether they intended it or not. This liquidation is all about artificially inflating 3rd quarter profits for V/U, much like releasing before the game was ready was about inflating 2nd quarter profits.We should have become wary last week when a part of Dynamix management took their sick days after returning from a visit to Sierra.Read more over at Tribal War. What does this mean for future Tribes2 patches? Heaven only knows, but one thing is for sure, I WILL NOT be buying any games from Sierra or any of their subsidiaries as long as I live.
