Regardless of what others might say about Stardock's decision about giving away FE, I feel that it takes a really good company that actually cares about games to do such things, so my congratulations, every time you guys do something that shows how Stardock's handles issues, you just become more awesome in my eyes.
That along with how open you guys are with players in the forums, makes me actually care for the company, to me all others are more like 'well, sure, they are game makers' but I do not really feel anything aside from 'I buy the stuff', here I actually feel good when you say Stardock is doing good and so forth.
So maybe I am the sappy one, but that is how I feel.
Besides all your games are awesome so far, so why expect a sudden change? (WoM was simply buggy, not bad in itself imo)
