Re: Realtime Worlds games company goes into administration

No offence but they made a relatively average product and wanted to charge MMO money for it. One of their many mistakes was giving just a limited online game time for fresh starters, nearly all MMOs offer a month free playing time. Perhaps next time they shouldn't let just the accountants dictate so much....oh wait there's probably not going to be a next time for them.  Roll eyes
