    I read about the company status 2 days ago. Many people of Portalarium lost their job, the future of SotA is uncertain. And until now there is no statement about the situation from the leader of Portalarium - and design legend - Richard Garriott. I am frankly shocked. Where are you @Lord British?

    I feel like official forums should be a higher priority then Twitter.

    I'm not sure that Darkstarr typing in the words "Lord British" actually counts.

    It was bound to happen after the majority of the work was done.

    I'm sure the employees had at least a vague idea.

    Well, for me both signatures is enough.

    Topics about what they are working on its more important than keep talking about layoffs tbh.

    Agreed, it's an industry standard to lose some people after the product ships.

    Riiiiiiiiight.... launch is when the game that was promised, is delivered. That STILL hasn't happened, and won't even really happen in a couple weeks. But keep drinking the kool aid.

    Wait, SOTA isnt the game that was promised???? ***Looks around in bewilderment*** i thought the game was super fun, with lots of very in depth quests and awesome balanced PvP! Population is exploding out the seams since its now officialy released and that is what ALL the backers were waiting for. I also heard its hard pressed to find a POT with less than hundreds if not thousands of people populating at any given time or day. One of the reasons every scene needs a load time.

    While I understand the need to want to talk about it Sir Cabirus, the problem is that it inevitably goes in a bad direction. On top of that, company officers are limited in what they can say because they can't speculate like the rest of us on the company's future, it's bad for many different and obvious reasons (like keeping everyone else motivated and not wanting to leave). So, with that in mind and the history of relentless malcontents and trolls on places like reddit, it's probably best to leave it alone. Just my 2 cents

    ... and yet you are the first (and only so far) person that's actively attacking a part of the community....

    Maybe lets focus on the topic of the OP instead of trying to stir the pot and place blame on people?

    Let's wait for the livestream. Ask your questions then. That is my opinion .

    When it comes to SotA's many shortcomings (which I can barely see due to the post launch population explosion getting in the way), perhaps we should follow the sage advice of that dynamic duo, Milli Vanilli, and just blame it on the rain...



    I mean, whatever you do, don't put the blame on you.
