It indeed makes no sense. I know they have failed to even respond to some interest, which says that no, not all options are exhausted.
I can understand if there are hurdles involving the account servers or whatever else, but if they're not willing to even enter into negotiations with other parties, they're not even trying.

Burnt Toast, I do not suggest giving up hope until Nov. 30 at the earliest, barring solid information that shows exactly why this cannot happen.

I do not fault you for fatigue, nor for wishing to save your memories of it. But I hope you will continue to, if not actively cheerlead, at least cheer quietly in hope. You deserve that much!

If this is indeed true.... I can give a solemn guarantee that NCSoft will no longer exist as a viable company within a decade.

If we want to change the messages that's going to be circulating after this, though, we'll need one of those "other parties" to be willing to go public. Very public, in business and gaming news.

Yeah.

I don't believe them.

Every effort?

Nope.

I'm looking forward to the private servers.

They're dealing with a PR shit storm and maybe the hurricane needs to be bumped up a category  8)

Now, now. It's only been a heavy rain so far. We've got a couple levels of "Tropical Storm" to go through before we consider "Hurricane."  ;)

(Which is to say, "If they think it's bad now or that the next level is as bad as it gets...")

Unfortunately I am not a member of one of those parties (my bank account has a resounding $21 in it), or I would be making it as public as humanly possible. 

That said, I agree.  I'd like for anyone involved with that kind of thing to chime in, if possible.

No amount of petition signature or articles will make NCSoft change their minds. They have made their decision twice now...so be it.
Third time is the charm! ;)

I'd like the bidder/s to go public with just how much they were offering - it'd really help to keep the pressure on NCSoft if we could publicize what they were turning down in exchange for something that they were going to just throw away.

Keep talking. Keep pushing. Be polite. DO NOT give up.

They're giving us PR fluff. Don't fall for it.

Increase the pressure. Politely. Wait for the people who are actually going to give us real facts to have a chance to talk.

The best way to shut them up is to set up a fan fundraise. Gotta keep theirs eyebrows up.
Yeeessss....

That'd be nice, yeah.  Would there be any issues with NDAs or otherwise that could stop this from happening?

Until the servers go dark  there will always be some hope.

Those who said it was just PR fluff are absolutely right. This means nothing. It's a ploy to make us shut up. Which is a perfect time to turn up the heat. Keep banging those drums!

I'm not even sure it is a ploy (though a post in the other thread now has me suspicious). It could be their current honest belief. In which case, it means they're tired. And that we need to change their minds.

Which we definitely can do.

Ignoring my last two posts in the /em hold torch thread, we should consider something along the lines of the OP's suggestion in that thread as an ongoing attention-getter and support-show.

They do something like this whenever we're all fiesty. We were starting to flag a little and then Tim's video got us all fired up again (and we were all 'YAY LETS FIGHT GUYS'), and they announced the refunds and the sunset schedule of events and everyone was all like '..oh. Doooom.'

Now we're all Fansied up and getting a bunch of new interest and they've issued this.
