9. Re: Rhode Island Sues Schilling and Others over 38 Studios Deal Nov 1, 2012, 22:48 Cutter
 
And why isn't Wells Fargo getting sued? They sound entirely complicit in this. Regardless, as others have said, they definitely overreached trying to make a CRPG and MMO at the same time when they had nothing proven to begin with. From the looks and sounds of it it really seems that Rolston, Salvatore, and McFarlane did little more than dial it in for the outrageous money they made. And there sounds like there was a ton of serious mismanagement going on - wasteful spending, nepotism, etc.

I too have a bit of sympathy for Curt, but damn, this falls under the 'How hard can it be?' school of business where the excitement of doing a thing was obviously not really thought out versus the reality. I mean who the hell says 'Oh we've never made a game before but we're going to blow 75 mil right out of the gate on the super awesome lucky best game evar!!!' There has to be some accountability in there somewhere. You pay your money, you take your chances.
