Massive;y has always been sympathetic, so no surprise, there. The comments are more telling. Thanks to Quinch and Company for getting in quick to set the record straight on the nay-sayers.
I wouldn't use the word "replace," but there's no word for "take over for you and make everything better almost immediately," so we just say "replace."

Well, there was that one update Massively had where they basically said 'don't come to us with your plights' and named SaveCoH more or less by name.

So this is a breath of fresh air from them, something to restore faith.

Actually, we've had tons of positive coverage since then. They are constantly dropping the good word for us.

Also here:

This article differs from the others as it only deals with the statement from NCsoft and trying to draw what I feel to be questionable conclusions from it.

May NCSOFT burn in hell.

or at the very least get so unprofitable they have to break it up and sell everything. 

maybe then we can get coh back up and running.

You are probably the only person here who COULD chip in with a comment, Quinch.

YES!!

Hit em HARD, hit em FAST, and KEEP HITTING THEM.

It's going viral!

Agreed...not only do we KNOW there's shenanigans afoot there involving NCSoft, but we assuredly have them on the defensive....

Just my opinion, but, at this point, it's time to say 'screw whatever they think they can do to us', and open up with every remaining gun we've got...there's blood in the water, ladies and gentlemen...time to FINISH this.   >:(

...if anyone's got any proverbial nukes left in the arsenal...let 'em fly!!

NCSoft will never burn in hell... Not even the Devil could get EPA permission to release that much pollution into the atmosphere, even in hell.

I really loved the breakdown you gave in your comment, Quinch. Who exactly would make suitable custodians of COH, if not the development team itself?

yeah, very good read, although many of the comments are complaining that we are just whiners and think we should move on

whenever i read those it kind of infuriates me because its mostly likely they never had to experience a game shut down, or didnt have any attachments to a game that was shut down

it almost makes me wish that some game they really enjoy gets yanked for absolutely no reason or completely BS reasons so they would be able to know what its like
