On Stardock's Elemental Launch Fail

A forum post by Brad Wardell offers the Stardock CEO's perspective on what he calls "the completeness of Stardock's fail" on the launch of Elemental, commenting on their "sheer blindness," and saying: "There will be massive consequences for Stardock's game studio. I'll be talking more about this when I get back. But the game wasn't released early. The game was released poorly." Here's more:

Head in the sand syndrome imo. I've read the reviews as much as possible given my hideous internet access up here and I agree with them. We just didn't see what they were talking about. We thought any complaints would be about polish points or something.

The point is, the issue here is far far worse than many of you think it is. I wish it was an issue of the game being released too early. That's an easy thing for a company to "fix". Elemental's launch is the result of catastrophic poor judgment on my part.

Thanks nin via Dubious Quality.

Sin's was great but it was not developed by Stardock.

OK the issue is that Brad keeps "learning lessons."

Demigod - Were not going to do multi-player for a long time.

Elemental - ? Brad doesn't do coding or is it that paid beta is not a complete testing system?

The thing that made me love Stardock AKA no DRM and a great game aka Gal Civ are over. I personally view Paradox games as more refined on release day. This stigma is going to last a long long time.
