  2. Your voting for Publisher of The Year should be finalized within the week. I've already
  3. discussed the matter with the players.
  4.  
  5. ACTIVISION
  6. I take it they were agreeable?
  7.  
  8. BLIZZARD
  9. They didn't really have a choice.
  10.  
  11. ACTIVISION
  12. Are they using RealID?
  13.  
  14. BLIZZARD
  15. Oh yes, most certainly. When I mentioned that they could add their friends and contant them, they were so willing it was almost pathetic.
  16.  
  17. ACTIVISION
  18. This RealID -- the rioting is intensifying to the point where we may not be able
  19. to contain it.
  20.  
  21. BLIZZARD
  22. Why contain it? Let it spill over into the forums and blogs, let the trolls
  23. pile up in the corner. In the end, they'll beg us to let them play.
  24.  
  25. ACTIVISION
  26. I've received reports of troll attacks on forums. There's not enough moderators
  27. to go around, and the players are starting to get desperate.
  28.  
  29. BLIZZARD
  30. Of course they're desperate. They can smell their ban, and the sound they'll
  31. make rattling their cage will serve as a warning to the rest.
  32.  
  33. ACTIVISION
  34. Mmm. I hope you're not underestimating the problem. The others may not go as
  35. quietly as you think -- intelligence indicates they're behind the problems in
  36. Battlenet Offtopic.
  37.  
  38. BLIZZARD
  39. A bunch of old men playing at running the game. But the game left
  40. them behind long ago. RealID is the future.
  41.  
  42. ACTIVISION
  43. We have other problems.
  44.  
  45. BLIZZARD
  46. Respawn Entertainment?
  47.  
  48. ACTIVISION
  49. Formed by our employees after the strike on Infinity Ward. I have
  50. someone in place, though. I'm more concerned about Arena.Net -- they relocated to
  51. Bellevue.
  52.  
  53. BLIZZARD
  54. Our MMORPG is far in advance of theirs, as is our playerbase.
  55. And their... ethical inflexibility has allowed us to make progress in areas they
  56. refuse to consider.
  57.  
  58. ACTIVISION
  59. Subscription fees?
  60.  
  61. BLIZZARD
  62. Among other things -- but I must admit that I have been somewhat disappointed in
  63. the performance of the primary MMO.
  64.  
  65. ACTIVISION
  66. The secondary MMO should be online soon. It's currently undergoing preparation
  67. and will be operational within six months. My people will continue to report on
  68. its progress. If necessary, the primary will be terminated.
  69.  
  70. BLIZZARD
  71. We've had to endure much, you and I, but soon there will be money again, a new
  72. age. Aquinas spoke of the mythical MMO on the Hill. Soon that MMO will be a
  73. reality, and we will be crowned its gamemasters. Or better than gamemasters. Gods.
