Something Sergey posted on the forums...
So here's something Sergey Titov, the owner of Hammerpoint and it's parent company Arktos (which you all should know about by now) said in a thread of on their forums, that I think everyone who owns the game deserves to see:

I'm not going to comment on whole DDOS thing, but since my name was mentioned here, I'll probably will say a few words - to our players, not to this guy.

1) Unfortunately it's not just up to me to decide when and how things will be done. Until recently I've been public face of the project, so I can understand why some people are associate project with me personally, and not people who's making game and operating/publishing it. Okay I'll say that - yes I deserve some of the ♥♥♥♥ that I'm getting personally for being bad communicator.

2) I agree that few features that have been promised in 2012 are still not yet delivered - and in my personal list Server Rentals goes under number one. I'm trying to push dev guys hard as I can for them to complete this feature ASAP. Saying that - unfortunately I do not posses as much power as players want to believe. Still here's my list of features that are important for a game that are still not available to public :
- Gameworld server rentals
- Stronghold servers and maps
- Leaderboards
As for this guy in a interview - unfortunately I personally CAN'T produce "proof" of the features being developed, I can only as a shareholder of Hammerpoint can say I know they're being worked on. But it's up to development leads/team is to decide if they want to show anything until it's done or not.

3) Unfortunately DDOS attacks are not helping anyone. Here's why - instead of spending time developing game, resources including MONEY will be spent on making sure that we'll have infrastructure in place to withstand them. This will delay release of the features. More importantly - people who actually vote what to do with a game in a future ( and that's not just me unfortunately ) will take this under consideration.
Like a member of their forum and the DayZ forums said when I saw this, pay close attention to #3. The way it read to him, me, and many others, is that it's a vague hint that there's some closed door discussions going on about whether they're going to keep supporting the game or not.

The fact that he owns both companies (and many of the outlieing companies like OP productions and Online Warmongers who made War Inc), and is trying hard to distance himself from the game and put the blame of the decision making onto un-named parties is also pretty ominous when you consider the implications of that last paragraph.

Sergey is becoming so predictable .....

never saw this coming - lol - thanks Steam for refunding what would have been 100% wasted money. My vote is sooner - maybe 3-4 weeks and they'll bail, then come back with all shiny new company names and try the same crap again (steal a popular game idea, push it out faster than those from whom you stole it, and deliver pure crap) in a year when all the cash Serg made gets used up by hewkers and bloow...

Well, this explains why we haven't heard from him anymore - somebody took his microphone away. Can't say I'm surprised; all of his statements have been huge ♥♥♥♥-ups.

Anywho, sounds to me like they're getting ready to cut and run.

so true, get ready to bail lads. The War is almost ended lolz .___.''

Typical Sergey always blaming someone else for his ♥♥♥♥ ups.
OFFLINE Jan 7, 2013 @ 10:05pm 
Lies. He created hammerpoint, arktos and every other company associated with this mess. It's 100% in his control. Even if it wasn't, there's no reason these "mysterious" developers can't come forward and show the missing features or contact us directly. I mean why is the "executive producer" the main spokesman for the game if he has no control or input on the product and is nothing but a shareholder?... and who the ♥♥♥♥ makes up this dev team anyways? Ghosts?

no guys its the devs being lazy
i really want these features too
no guys its the money we have to spend defending against the ddos

1) Boilerplate ***-covering for the failure of a project he knew was going to fail anyways, because he designed it to fail.
2) Smoke and mirror play for the three guys who still believe WarZ actually has a chance.
3) Proof of either Sergey's total incompetence or his deliberate efforts to make a product that will fail, specifically that protective measures that would have defeated a DDoS attack were not in place beforehand. Logically speaking, such protection should have been in place before the servers opened to the public in the first place.

Umm it doesnt take a lot of detective work to figure out who works for Hammerpoint.

Just look to the right, click on their own profiles and follow the employees from their association. Roman Stepanov aka RussianKaliber, Patrick Bowman aka Kewk. Just some amateur detective work will net you 35 employees.

When the game will go down it will be so called the fault off the community.
As because off some actions made by people so called obstruct the process of the game.

It was to be seen from a distince that they would play it this way.
I wonder if some hc warz players will even then defend the game with this as a weapon.
So prepare to be pointed at as the ones who killed warz instead of even then ppl realizing its
all been nothing but spinning by Sergey and his team.

Number 3. in his long rant is bull. Since when do developers deal with DDOS attacks? Actually it has no affect on the developers, they send in a complaint to their web server service and THEIR security folks deal with it. Another attempt to lie his way out of making improvements. :) Devs never deal with server issues, the company they contract for the servers do. That really shows how dumb this guy really is.

I agree with you. They will blame the so called haters and trolls. They will blame the hacker attacks. And then they will stop supporting that game and take the money. And the sad thing will be that some stupid people will believe their lies.

I found like 2 employees directly related to hammerpoint outside of the 3 we already hear too much from (who btw don't list hammerpoint as their company). Dunno where you get 35 from... but lets just say you did, 35 employees and this is all the progress that has been made in the 3 months? Lies
