In another 6 months... this guy will get fired or quit, and someone else will take over.
Funcom has not made one MMO yet that was polished enough for launch. Not One. You would thin they'd get that through their skulls after 3 failed MMO launches... and by failed I mean way short of expected sales and subscriptions. It doesn't matter if they are still running... all 3 are commercial flops... with AO being the only one that decently recovered.
