CoH Website

    CoH Website

    It seems the loss of Noun and now Thunder and the other layoffs have already begun to be felt. The CoH site was down all day yesterday and is still down today.

    Internet Explorer does not even find it and Firefox says "The server at www . companyofheroes . com is taking too long to respond."

    Did they take the website down or is it down because they are understaffed?

    You're right. Let's be optimistic and say the downtime is because they're finally updating it for the CoH2 announcement?
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    That would be nice, but I doubt that is it. If it were they would have atleast done the majority of the work back in February, I believe it was when it was down for over a week while they changed servers.

    But a part of me hopes you are correct.

    Site is back up. Looks like some server issue as they've had to rely on week old backups.

    That's what happens when they fire everybody but the janitor. Luckily he knows how to reboot a computer.....

    Noun quit for another job and Thunder apparently was a victim of the recent layoffs

    Yes the website is back up.

    Thank you Noun, good to see you still around. You may not work for them anymore but still looking out for them!

    I'm not surprised Noun (or anyone else) quit. Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

    Noun went to EA, from the sounds of it he is better off their. Have not heard anything about Thunder.

    It's a shame they keep losing great community managers/employees to EA... Those who have been around will remember Buggo, she was awesome too.



    No offense Noun, I hope you'll have a great time there, and I hope that you will hop by from time to time.

    Buggo's at Microsoft. I never met her, but she helped me get my job at Relic.

    Buggo's great.

    More on Thunder, he got his layoff notice the day before he left on Vacation :-(

    I guess THQ's doing the community stuff out of California now, so no one directly on site at Relic doing Community "management" .

    Sounds familiar...happened to a couple of co-workers at my last job. I was let go a month before I was to go on vacation myself. Where I worked it was always on payday too before everyone went home for the weekend

    @Noun: Glad you were able to do a controlled exit as it were. So what are you doing at EA anyway?

    I know Thunder was laid off, what I mean by "Have not heard anything about Thunder. " was I haven't heard anything about or from him since the layoff.


    he got his layoff notice the day before he left on Vacation
    Kind of takes the fun out of the vacation before it starts doesn't it?


    so no one directly on site at Relic doing Community "management" .
    At the moment, no. Some member are talking anarchy.

    I aware of one reason why the games industry is short of cash and that's piracy. I wish everyone would stopping being a thief/bleeming pikey/twat and pay for your games. Folks need to earn a living.

    Well that out the way I'm going to support Relic anyway I can and IF they need any of my skills to help the community for the COH greater good I'm in! Click for Victory!

    To elaborate, piracy results in a percentage of lost revenue. Instead of gamer X going to a brick and mortar store or logging into a virtual store and paying a set amount for a given title, they instead grab that title via bittorrent or a warez site. That being said...

    I wish everyone would stopping being a thief/bleeming pikey/twat and pay for your games. Folks need to earn a living.
    I approve of this statement

    The problem is that for most folks, there's not enough incentive to NOT pirate software. It seems that people who tend to pirate don't care too much about what effect their activities are having on the gaming industry and the people that keep said industry running. The subject of addressing piracy ought to be left for a different topic though.

    On topic, I hope this round of layoffs doesn't wind up affecting Relic's existing projects, including COH2

    Yes, it should. No more piracy discussions here please.
