DarkCntry, you are aware that the last six months ( probably more )of AC2's existance were entirely under Turbine's control right?

A lot more... more like the last year and a half of AC 2's existence.

They purchased back the rights to the game from MS ( who wanted nothing to do with it ). Now I'm not hating on Turbine, I totally loved AC1, and enjoyed AC2, but to say they weren't responsible for screwing AC2 is rediculous. One may argue that the plane was already falling far too fast for them to pull it up in time, but clearly they didn't feel that way, or they wouldn't have purchased back the rights.

You're right... it's absolutely ridiculous, because many of DDO's launch bugs were previous existing AC 2 bugs.... and MS had nothing to do with DDO. Turbine had 3 years of AC2 to iron out those bugs, and didn't.

Their MMO engine sucks... always has... always will. Turbine can't code their way out of a paper bag. They're a bunch of amateurs... and anyone that had any good / solid design ideas, have left the company long ago.

Now, with all that said... I hope they've pulled their heads out of their @sses (as a company) for this game.... it will be sad to see another "hack job" on something as precious as a Tolkien world.
