Derek Smart vs DreamCatcher

A post to the Battlecruiser Online Forums by 3000AD's Derek Smart (thanks uberneuman and Voodoo Extreme) expresses unhappiness at the value price point Universal Combat has been tagged with, saying: "We [3000AD] fully intend to litigate this because this is just ridiculous." He also describes how this impacts support of the product:

Because of how the deal is structured and given how we are paid, we stand zero chance of making ANY money on this game, let alone turn a profit for our efforts. And with that, we certainly won't have the money to allocate resources to its support. Which means, this particular UC game - unless this matter is resolved prior to the game going to retail - will be the one and only version released. No patches. No tweaks. Nothing. In other words, its Take Two all over again - except that in the case of this game, it actually works.

Wow, all you idiots talk like you actually know what you are talkking about. So many attornies and game developers here! Cognoscenti de-fucking-luxe. You guys are all so smart I almost feel stupid in you holy e-presence.

DS is the little guy here, and the guy that makes the games, and when he loses, you lose. You are all just jealous that DS makes his living doing what he likes. So he make MMOG rather than FPSs. To each his own. There sure seems to be a market and a following for it. If you don't like the game, don't play it. What's the point of cutting on someone for getting a raw deal from a big corp?

The only reason you pick on the guy is because he opens his mouth on the net, unlike most of the devs who never say a fucking word. You whine about that too, hypocrites. You should be happy he actually talks to you fools, and gives you insights to things you wold otherwise no nothing about. God DS must be such a prick to have the nerve to talk to you idiotfaces. I would have an ego too, if I knew that most of the people I talk to are so fucking stupid as all of you. I would feel better than everyone else too.
