FE Under New Management

I saw this on FB, details are in forums under Game Discussion 



Hello Fallen Earth community,
 
My name is Matthew Scott and I’m the CEO of Little Orbit.
 
Today we have announced the acquisition of GamersFirst, and many other assets including Fallen Earth. To go along with that announcement, I thought I would take some time and write a personal letter to you.
 
Let me start by sharing an introduction to Little Orbit so you can get to know us. We started as a small game developer in 2003, and in the last 8 years we have grown into a small retail publisher. We are not a big studio, and trust me, you wont find any of our previous titles impressive. But recently we have started taking steps to transition into the publisher we want to be.
 
Fallen Earth was the first game I played at GamersFirst. I had the unique opportunity to meet the very small team of dedicated folks that help keep the game alive, before they knew Little Orbit would be acquiring everything. I saw their love of Fallen Earth and their frustration with the inability to properly support everyone. I got to see the passion of several internal employees who worked tirelessly to put on our first event in years.
 
I also got to play the game, and I was pleasantly surprised by how fun it was. 
 
We have a lot to do in the next 30 days. Expect to see GDPR updates for GamersFirst including new privacy policies, code of conduct, and term & conditions. We will also be cleaning up the social pages, implementing a new forum, showcasing a general roadmap and announcing a significant change to our banning and cheating policies.
 
This is all critical for setting up an environment where you can give us feedback.
 
Nothing is going to happen overnight with Fallen Earth. But it's clear to me that there is something special here worth rebuilding. We need to spend more time mapping out exactly what that looks like.
 
I look forward to sharing more information with you soon.
Thank you for your patience and support.
 
Sincerely,
Matthew Scott

Don't wanna sound like a hater. I sorta find it skeptical for the reason : "Little Orbit is also working with Descendent Studios, the company making Descent: Underground. "

Reason why, I tried to find the game they have made, or if the company has any relations with steam. They had the "Descent: Underground" on greenlight and actually managed to have it released. Yet, for some reason, they remove it from Steam(https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/7/1484358860943898088/).. 

Plus the fact that they'll rather put more accent on APB than on FE mostly because APB's worth lot more to milk it from.

But then hey. Who knows what these guys are up to. I'm rather surprised Gamersfirst were willing to do this.

Just to reiterate my shout... We need to be pushing the RP case right from the start. We need to be a squeaky wheel on this and let them know we are here.

Stick with me kid and you'll be farting through silk.

At one time we did get together and presented things RPers wanted and even got a few.

((I wonder how much of a change there is going to be.

It might even tempt people back if they give it a bit of a makeover.

((yeah, but I really feel like running a bit around ingame and feel nostalgic. Ride my car and the bike :-D

((Yup, but I hope they don't do a reset. I really don't want to have to create ten new characters... or even one for that matter.

((Do you still play?

((Not at the moment but if the population grows then, who knows.

(( Agreed.  And not in the way of new featurs that require you purchase boosters in order to have any change of obtaining them.

((I have no idea what that means... but right on bro! (Did I do that right?)

(( LOL  I meant like they did with GORE weapons, or the AP.  Lone players have to grind FOREVER to get the required mats or pay way high prices on the Market.  I am hopeing for basic enhancments or new stuff that uses existing mats

(( Here is hopeing they put in Trucks.

What doesn't kill me... better start fucking running.
