Re: Sequels strife

Thanks Elestan. That clears things up a lot for me. I think I've got a much better understanding of this process now. However, this also helps to reaffirm that I do not wish to be a lawyer. It seems to me that Summary Judgment should have very interesting results in this case. There appear to be a l...

Re: Sequels strife

Thanks Elestan, helpful as usual. I could have (and may have) read that information five times and not retained it. ...so that the Judge can rule on them in November. After that, there's a mandatory settlement negotiation prior to starting the final preparations for trial. So what exactly does “Summ...

Re: Sequels strife

What happens in October? Or was that an arbitrary date? (And why does this feel like a pun?)

Re: Childrens' play log

Wow, this is pretty epic. It’s really cool to see how children play this game. I think I must have been about 12 myself when I first played it. Plenty of poor decisions* there! Of course I already had experience with SC1 for melee. (*I searched nearly every star in the radius of 200 units to find th...

Re: I remember that I don't remember...

I thought maybe it was just a joke, but the production timelines do match. And I guess it actually was discussed way back then. The things you never knew!

Re: I remember that I don't remember...

First off, thanks for the fast replies. I was expecting this to sit for a few days. Secondly, thanks for the research. That was surprisingly enlightening. I’m a software developer myself, so I can relate to ”design choices taking too much time/effort” (It’s a perpetual battle for me). When it comes ...

I remember that I don't remember...

So this has been bothering me for the last 15+ years. I remember reading a file, document, or article from when I was younger. It had something to do with “Fred and Paul disappeared for some time and came back with a bunch of new planets etc”. I read some of this article long before I realized how i...

Re: Sequels strife

I've always thought the idea of crowdsourcing was really cool for any purpose. I’ve often wondered how the information is verified. This is the perfect situation for opposing parties to inject false information. But maybe that could be handled by redundancy of volunteers. I like the idea of tagging ...

Re: Sequels strife

If there is one word to sum up Stardock’s CEO, it’s entitled. Matthias, I think I agree with your assessment of how this all started. Although it seems more like someone uttering death threats, and then stalking, rather than just getting angry. To me it appears that - early on - F&P’s responses have...

Re: Sequels strife

Hi everyone. New forum member here, long time fan of SC/SC2. I’ve got to say, when I first heard of Origins, I was quite excited. I was a little confused at some of the game play choices (planets), but I quickly found out it was not created by P&F. I still looked forward to buying it. SC3 was still ...
