So we all know that Atari is a terrible company, they havent done much of anything right since the early 80s and Yar's Revenge... they have terrible customer service and they pull shenanigans on their customers. So I would like to put forth a question to you guys.
Would you rather have Atari as the producer or... SOE, Mythic or NCsoft?
Mythic would have cut out the Klingons completely, promising that they would put them in after launch. Then never follow-through. Half the content we have wouldnt be in. They would nerf the graphics engine to make it more stable...
SOE would put the game on the back burner like they did Vanguard, claiming financial troubles for the reason why they never give any funds to that dev team for content, and then two year later they would close the game completely.
NCsoft would close down the company and send the workers elsewhere, or just lay them off. They would hire Richard Garriot to oversee the direction of the game. Borg would be everywhere like in the end of beta, and then they would announce a massive expansion a month before the game goes offline permanently.
