Opinions flair from ex-NCsoft employees about TR's closing

As Tabula Rasa approaches its end days, the anger, sadness and I-told-you-so sentiments are rising up more than ever. This week marks an interesting occasion where two former NCsoft employees each wrote detailed stories on their own perspectives regarding the sci-fi MMO's downward spiral.

Incredibly good read.
It's a shame there wasn't much info as to why Garriot left and his stake in the game afterwards, and it is strange how TR could simply fail. But I suppose, like the blogger Scott: that TR was just released in a time it wasn't needed and it took too long to get out. I guess if TR got released a couple years ago it would've probably lifted off where it had more of a chance.

On the plus side, NCSoft did try to reach for the stars by trying to incorporate US and Korea players. That's for true. I can only surmise that it would take the strength of mountains to get Koreans off of Starcraft and on something else.
