Bioware is bleeding Devs and programmers and Gabe Amatangelo IS STILL HERE?!! Why did all the good Devs leave and Gabe, one of the minds behind the failure that was WAR, still here? Epicly disappointed sigh.
WAR failed for the same reason that SWTOR failed. Horrible game engine, unable to handle any mass (like 10 vs 10, lol) PvP at playable framerates.
The ideas were good, and the scenarios (WAR's warzones) were very fun.
Wouldn't blame Gabe for WAR's failure. I blame engineers.
Same applies to SWTOR.
