Vivendi Denies Break-up Rumors

Rumors that emerged this week that Vivendi is considering a major reorganization/break up were widespread enough that the company has come out and denied the reports. Here's their reaction to speculation that they would spin off their music and game (Activision Blizzard) divisions into a separate company:

"Vivendi learned with stupefaction of the claims made by Bloomberg in a story published tonight about its strategy," a Vivendi spokesman said. "Vivendi vigorously denies all the assertions in the story, which are unfounded and based on anonymous sources."

I've been boycotting them since they dropped support for Tribes: Vengeance (a couple months after I bought it), and I've been blaming them for the death of the franchise.

Have yet to try Tribes Ascend, worried it will be disappointing...Maybe I'll give it a shot.

It's beyond amazing. Ignore the "it's pay2win LOLZ" whining, it's not at all.

Yeah, I've not tried it either, but people here seem to speak favorably of it.


I've logged maybe 15 or so hours playing it. Not bad at all. Haven't spent any money on it yet (besides some free coins I got from promoting it on FB), but I never really felt like I needed to.

The only big gripe I have is map design, which I might just chalk up to personal preference as I can see WHY they did what they did. Base defense is essentially a joke as flags/generators are stored in locations that offer no natural defense.

Joe: "Hey, Shmoe. Where do you want to put the flag? We have a nice secured safe room in the bottom floor of the bunker where we could..."

Shmoe: "No... No that won't work. Let's put it on top of the bunker. On top of a pole. Raised 50 feet off the ground so it is out of range of any of the defensive turrets."

Joe: "... are you even on our team?"

Shmoe: "I'm almost fairly sure I am."
