Funny. Oolite will die (as a thing on the internet) when the legal eagles decide we are drastically impacting on market share, using copyrighted material that is keeping a valued revenue stream away from frontier games. For that to happen the benefit of getting the C.A.D. order written and implemented has to sizably outweigh the revenue generated from oolites commercial channelling capacity of new players into elite: dangerous. In a nut shell we're useful, as long as we are financially useful killing us serves no financial purpose.fronclynne wrote:Will Oolite survive the release of Zork: Dangerous?
etc etcIt is now official. Rolling Stone has confirmed: Oolite is dying
One more crippling bombshell hit the already beleaguered Oolite community when IBD confirmed that Oolite market share has dropped yet again, now down to less than a fraction of 1 percent of all players. Coming on the heels of a recent Rolling Stone survey which plainly states that Oolite has lost more market share, this news serves to reinforce what we've known all along. Oolite is collapsing in complete disarray, as fittingly exemplified by failing dead last in the recent BBC comprehensive gaming test.
We are not costing them money by existing.
In any case the structure is completely different:
Elite:dangerous competitive play = teenagers blowing the shit out of each other in some god forsaken corner of the digital universe.
Oolite competitive play = I take your mod sir and I improve it!! Ha Ha!
There is no comparison, because you can't compare quality to quantity.
The day I see Frontier take out oolite is the day a caduceus is seen gracing the space-ways of dangerous. It's not going to happen.
