    and i think that we will have a increase of active players in the comeing month and years. I am optimistic
    I think that the plan is to get as many planets up and advertizing as possible during 2010-2011 so they get a lot of players in

    I am very curious to see what SEE might be bringing in

    Ok, I went through this report again and Im not an expert in this area but
    the report has an "comparing disturbing" sum on the cost side of ~10M sek ( costs related to the bank adventure) and that is a onetime cost in my eyes.
    If that sum is taken out from the report it starts looking normal in my eyes.

    But they need some cash and therefore probably made the "give-us-cash-now-and-get-better-procentege" deal, selling(or what ever it is) of calypso and selling of a building in Germany(not sure if it the same building they are building?)
    They think they can manage with this the rest of 2010 with expansive efforts to the planetpartner model.

    Yes, i think FPC and other planet partners will start advertising when some more things like vehicles are ready. I belive FPC want both the mindforce and the vehicles, in combination with a better envoriment and help for new players, online before they start some doing some more PR for the game.

    Well that is not realy true.... if they could increase the depositing players with about 25 % without increasing the expensives they are pretty much on profit, and i think that we will have a increase of active players in the comeing month and years. I am optimistic
    Yeah...add 25% to a market that is currently stagnant to failing...best of luck with that, seriously.

    74 people to run what exactly? That's 74 salaries for what? - It sure as hell disqualifies it as a zero sum system...ahem IG advertising.

    MA staff have clearly expanded over the years and have yet been unable to add value as a consequence. The novelty has reached as many as will ever care to try it on a serious front....corporate dilution, bureaucratically top heavy, Ego over substance... however it is broken down MA have not understood their product well enough to avoid a slow dissolution.

    Well, they are growing from a pretty small player base and i think it not at all impossible to have at least +25% more active players this time next year. One problem is if the new planets "steal" players from FPC without actracting their own new players, because a share of the peds spent on the new planets will go to those new planet partners, and not MA.

    Well that is not supposed to happen, at least since they are supposed to bring their own players

    People like you having been saying stuff like this for years, well ever since PE started back in the early days
    Would you like to share with the rest of us what "people like me" would be?

    I think you shouldn't jump to conclusions that much as me suggesting the sky is falling, it could not only display yourself in a bad light but also paint yourself into a corner.

    If you are talking about loot save your voice, MA needs to make a profit, and it has not changed much at all, well tt returns anyways
    Funny thing is, I never mentioned loot, and it wasn't even in my mind when I wrote my respose to Marco's post. Freudian response from you, perhaps?

    And havving a go at Marco for saying the future looks bright, when in the same sentance you blame MA for tieing their hands......
    Not to kick someone already down, but perhaps you should learn what a "sentence" is before making such statements. It wasn't even in the same paragraph.

    Now with that out of the way, I have to assume both you and thoreau are on MA's payroll - I don't see how any customer of this establishment could seriously defend MA's and FPC's actions unless they either are on the payroll, or want to sweep the truth under the rug to "get more depositing players" in an attempt to recover their losses. As the latter would be so childishly obvious as to make it implausible, I'd have to assume employment.

    It's good to see that's out in the open, but it's sad to see what kind of tactics MA stoops to, and what kind of people they employ.

    That is IMO of importance to put weight behind the annual report, and to add credibility to FPC's statement(s)...
