So I was looking around and this article from Darth Hater made me jump in my chair. What!?! How is it possible that Swtor wins any sort of award? With the poor subscriptions performance, the bad reviews, the firings at Bioware. How is it possible for it to win anything?
So I went over to the Game Developers Choice Online Award website and looked at the categories, the rules and the advisory comittee to see if I could figure it out….
and I can’t.
I had written this really long post as to why but I’ll leave it up to everyone to make their own mind. I’ll just say that any game that lost that many subscribers and had to fire so many of its own employees should not receive the Best New Online Game award.
