Gaming News: "The Way of Things"
Posted: Monday May 11th, 2009 by

Last November Richard Garriott [exited] NCSoft. From the open letter he wrote to the Tabula Rasa community [more info] it sounded like he was leaving of his own accord to pursue other interests. But now, six months later, he's claiming to have been fired [by NCSoft] - while he was still in quarantine after returning from his trip to space - [in a $27 million lawsuit against the company over lost stock value.]
Source: Gamepolitics [ more info ]

Now, where I don't know Garriott well enough to doubt his word and I certainly don't trust a gaming company not to have changed his departure status [incidentally causing the loss of] top dollar on [Garriott's] stock options, I think the truth is somewhere in the middle.

Sometimes I wish there was a magic ball I could use to snoop out the truth of things. But honestly, I'd probably just sit around all day trying to determine what the winning lottery numbers are.
