NCsoft Seattle "Realignment"

PC Gamer has word on a shakeup at NCsoft's Seattle offices after contacting the Guild Wars 2 publisher to follow up on anonymous rumors that the Seattle studio had closed. The company denied the closure, but does admit that jobs have been lost there as the result of a "realignment," though the extent of this is not known at this point, nor is it clear how, if at all, this will impact Guild Wars 2. "NCsoft is realigning internal publishing resources to better suit the needs of our game development studios," PR Director Lincoln Davis told them. "As a result of the realignment, several employees and contract positions were affected. This was a very tough decision to make and wish the best for all NCsoft employees in their next ventures."

I still play GW2, but very casually. Just started a second character, and I still have the world map to complete on the first (almost there).

The big downfall will be if they don't fix the culling issue in WvW soon. People are getting pissed and leaving. I won't even get into WvW until it's fixed. They also need to put more things in the shop... there's nothing in the shop that I really want, and I'm guessing that is the same for the majority of people. I'm not talking pay2win items... but they need way more variety of armor and weapon skins, etc. for me to be interested.

For PvE I still think it is one of the best MMOs made in years. The coop design without forcing to group just makes the game shine, for the most part. There are some frustrating sections like there are in any MMO, but on the whole it is very well done, IMO. If they go radically changing the gameplay... they'll probably end up losing more than gaining, like SOE did with Star Wars Galaxy NGE.

With the ADHD entitlement generation... I'm really not to surprised that there is a more rapid and larger decline in server populations with newer MMO's than oldschool MMO's like EQ, when the genre was fairly fresh.
