Why? – That’s peoples jobs on the line -why would you wish someone unemployment? Because you don’t like how your game is?

Because they suck at their jobs?
Because they’re a bunch of greedy cunts who love p2w?
Because games that only rot in their hands can have a new future in the hands of another studio should gameforge close down and be forced to sell it’s assets?
Because i can?

They can find another job, gaming industry is a mean bitch and they have failed.
Tera alone is enough proof, it thrives in NA to this day, while it always only slowly rotted and crumbled under gameforge.

Lets hope no one ever wishes you lose your job, but you’re probably underage or live in your mommy basement.
