Player: Doesnt the fact that they rely on a third party, when they are one of the biggest game companies right now, show what UO means to them?
CatHat: Actually - Stratics does a fine job with the boards as far as we're concerned. People use third parties in the game biz all the time for things when its more cost effective. We'd rather have those funds going to an engineer or designer to work on more important issues at hand.
I know it might seem less spiffy this way to some - but i think if we were to unwisely burn money, that would really say something about us too.
