I have honestly lost some of the hope I had for Blizzard. I played Warcraft 1 when I was 3, and I was instantly hooked. I had no idea what I was doing, but I was hooked. I've played most of the games they came out with before World of Warcraft (with my historic computer gaming addiction, I'm not touching that with a ten-foot pole), and all of them were excellent, sparking the imagination.
That being said, I have been keeping up with the reading and conversations on Starcraft 2 (I got it for my brother for Christmas), and I'm sadly disappointed by what I've been hearing. For one, Blizzard has done what other companies have done in making their games "secure," i.e. forcing you to have a log-in online before you can even play it. For two, my brother read through the fine print of Starcraft 2, which said that they reserve the right to begin charging money on a per-month basis to play in the future. For three, I've heard that their customer service has fallen below the standards of actually caring for their customers.
Which...that is one of the hopes that I have for Stardock. Despite the problems with Elemental: War of Magic, the ordeal did prove to me A) that Stardock is humble and is willing to admit that they were wrong, that they care about quality games, and C) that they care about their customers. I haven't purchased War of Magic yet - I'll probably wait until Fallen Enchantress comes out - but I did want Stardock to know that I am supportive of any company that considers their customers and their products worthwhile enough to deliberately cut into the profit margins as an act of good faith.
As for Fallen Enchantress...man if it takes until 2013 to make the game sparkle, I'm willing to wait that long. In a computer game market that's been flooded by mediocre games as well as great games released by companies that do not respect their customers, I would like to see Stardock continue to succeed in the industry. Keep it up!
