I remember back when it took 15 minutes for internet pages to load and I could sit around talking to housepets during the downtime. It's that kind of crazy-person-talking-to-cats-community-focus that's absent from modern internets.
LOL!

We need someone at daybreak to come out and say what is really going on there. Things still seem uncertain for thier people. Why did the 2 EQN people get canned?? Anyone know?

I didn't know that about Secrets. How were we supposed to be finding that out? I don't think I've gamed with ?her?. But I've got one better. Kuro is actually a wooden beam brought to life by a cricket. You privileged cishet shitlords had no idea.
Pretty sure its been heavily implied both here and on P99 if not out right said a few times by people . Secrets did some shady stuff in the past in addition to her great works and got some negative press for it.

Its pretty transparent. The company was sold off to a Russian Oligarch named Viktor because the company does large cash sweep transactions. Viktor's corporate MO at Access Industries is to rarely put any working capital or maintenance capital back into the businesses he owns, often with wildly violent conflicts with both management and other stakeholders. Corporates tend to last about 4 years under his mandate, unless they are resource corporates and a foreign entity can be found to farm-in and subsequently carry Viktor to fresh billions.

Also for tax shields. Bitches love tax shields. He likely saw how much cash flow companies like Snail and Perfect World were pulling down brownfielding out old IP's and made Kaz an offer he couldn't refuse. SOE never integrated well with Sony Entertainment, Sony Playstation or Sony PC; so it wasn't much of a shock when Kaz announced his pivot towards sensor/photometery & hardware R&D something like SOE was the first thing to get canned. Not a single one of their major PC ports has ever cracked the top 10 on Vita or PS, which for a conglomerate is just begging to be downsized.

Talking shit on twitter is below a CEO. Smed should know better. Hopefully he has learned.

Smed or several SoE employees for that matter have ever been a picture of professionalism. Actually, it's more common place than you think to see these guys act like egotistical fools and placing themselves on some weird pedestal while flexing there muscles over people.
