FB has said he's working so hard on WoM because years from now, when people look back at the game (or pick it up in the bargin bin) that is won't be a negative experience; so it will be positive; a good legacy.
MP was not just listed on the box, it was talked about in depth durring it's creation process. So SD has two choices: They can put in a great MP (as was advertised and touted) and have people enjoy it for years to come, and look back on the game as a positive, or they can leave MP where it is (laughable and broken). Right now the "legacy" MP has on this game is down right embarrassing.
Like I wrote before, AoW did it a decade ago, and Stardock can't now???
And I want to thank people like Haldur, who don't care one way or the other about MP, but understand for MP people, it's a make or break thing. When you buy a game for MP, to play with friends/family, and there is NO mp, there is really no game for you either. . .
Then there's some other people, who seem to think that if they improve/fix MP, that that Stardock will fire everyone but the MP people; put yellow police tape around where the SP game people use to work, and say "Hey, were going to improve MP, so NOBODY goes near the SP work area ever again!
