but you dont understand the objective. they arent trying to make computer games.. they are trying to steal market share. its a business move with a business aim, pure and simple. you honestly think curt schilling gives a flying fuck about pc games? no, hes just interested in competition - as in, the financial kind
Actually, you're the one with no clue what the objective is.
No intelligent businessman says "hey, I'm going to compete with WoW head-on!"
Schilling is doing this out of love. As mentioned above, he used to review all the Everquest add-ons. He was notoriously one of the bigger gamers in the MLB (which says a lot) and spent almost all his gaming time in MMORPGs.
This is a man that seriously gives a flying fuck about PC games. So much that he's put $5 million of his own cash into trying to create his own. It's not about making money for Curt, it's about being able to own what he loves.
