Investment isn't the problem.  This game attracts players.    We just have to figure out how to make them stick around in this world of instant gratification.

Maybe our marketing should be on that it's a challenging high fidelity sim meant for serious MMO gamers seeking a realistic approach to combat simulation? Set it up as a challenge - that way they can't complain about things they normally moan about...?

Archie hasn't posted since 9-11 and it doesn't look like he's PNG. Either he got a clue or we might consider calling agent Gibbs or agent Fernell.

I'm sure they've got 2 people typing really fast at the same keyboard to finish coding the game.
