Kinda unrelated to SWTOR but very related to EA, while googling in my spare time I found this.

There's only one thing I can say, holy shit if that's true. After the Gamasutra article on the industry's working conditions 2 years ago and their comments being filled by well known devs who related stories of suicide due to the brutal work environment that is working for a publisher nowadays I suspect this picture may unfortunately not be fake.

Yeah, I worked for EA for just under a year before I had to quit. It really was horrible and I don't expect that's changed anymore than they've legally been forced to change. I'd wager the old Russian gulags were very similar.

Still... someone dying due to that Mythic CC problem a while ago? Holy hell, that is bordering on the truly insane. I know the industry has a brutal work environment but the stuff he tells goes beyond brutal and into nightmare territory.
