So, it's basically a general lack of trust following MWO coupled with a big WHY THE HELL ARE YOU RUNNING THIS YOURSELF WHEN NOBODY TRUSTS YOU, yes?
It's all of that, plus the thrill of watching the most insanely incompetent PR team probably in the whole of the games industry constantly collapsing upon itself.
Also on the MWO front, they announced the "Community Warfare" module two years ago that would allow for clans, territory control, etc. It was kind of completely dropped until last night: after a shocking number of founders, original backers, came out of the woodwork to point out that there were a number of unkept promises that had resulted in that backlash, they totally announced CW would happen again.
The game doesn't even have out-of-match chat lobbies for christs sake.
