If Arktos goes broke tomorrow, do you think that anyone will ever hire Sergey again?
Just wondering weather or not you think that Sergey has a future in video gaming if his company goes bust tomorrow?

I know that if I were a video game's developer, I would never employ anyone assosciated with that debacle of a game. I can't for the lfie of me see how Sergey can have a future in the video game industry after this if anything esle catastrophic happen's to Arktos.

A lot of player's will remember this game and the controversey that it has caused for decades to come and I do mean decades. History will now record the War Z as one of the worst game's ever made unless by some kind of natural disaster, every review site on the face of the planet goes down and has it's record's reset.

I just don't see how these people will be trusted to make and sell titles ever again by the gaming community or work for any company that value's it's reputation.

I would hire him just for the ability to boss him around. In example, I would give him a choice of being fired or running down the street naked and screaming "im a sexy monkey".

If I needed him for anything other than the sexy monkey dance then no, I would never think of hiring a guy like him.

HAHAHAHAHA, I'd be suprised if someone eve let him has own cubicle after this whole contreversy! Maybe you'll see him at the register at McDonald's

I heard he is being head hunted by EA, they feel he fits with thier business ethics.
Kitty Boots Feb 19, 2013 @ 7:34pm 
I bet he would just no-clip out of a cubicle anyway ..... kind of like the zombies in the latest patch .....

I do in-fact believe Sergey or anyone else there would get hired again. Likely as not a advertised project lead and set away from the community but most people cannot name 10 credited developers in a game they even absolutey love. You as the gamer may now recongize Sergey's name once you hit the end game credits if you actually pay attention to them. (which few do) but by then you already bought and finished the game.

Also do not be fooled what you see in the credits does not always reflect on all those who actually worked on the game. For example DarkSiders II had people who worked on the game for the majroity of the development but left for various reasons before going gold and were not credited at all.

In-fact I have to give the sad truth that if WarZ is a commerical success in terms of pulling in profits Sergey would likely be appealing to publishers that own and control developers under them. As he made a cheap budget project that not only profited but garnished a-lot of free media attention even before the release of the game. This is basically a publishers dream outcome.

The only thing that made this game successful for the ♥♥♥♥ it is, is the opportunity they had to steal a project to someone who was new in this business and don't knew how avoid the concurrent to steal his ideas before the release.
That the only thing hammerpoint was good for, no creativity, talent or anything, even worst since they failed to exploit a project with so much potential.
Knowing that, i have real doubts any company will see in sirgay titsoff's business model an example to follow.

Believe it was Sergey who did the hiring. If he ends up losing money on this (he won't) he might think twice before rushing out a crap ♥♥♥ turd game again, but he will make more games happen. If those also are financially unsuccessful he might go back to beat farming or whatever. What work did he do on League of Legends? If he did a solid job at whatever he did there he might get hired to do that again.

As far the rest of the staff, that depends on their responsibilities and the quality of their work. If Sergey is the one person ultimately responsible for the decrepit state of everything, then sure, why not.

Sadly I agree with some element's of what Neuclear Shadow has said. And it come's down to a point that I was trying to make a month back or so, Who is truly to blame for all of this? Everyone who invested in this game be it the gamer or the media is responsible for Sergey's "success". The only way now of taking his asset's would be if he was sued in a district high court or such but other than that, he's got away with his endevour's more or less unscathed while all he has really done is release a very cheap half ♥♥♥♥♥ game and abused the gaming communities trust and, in some cases, naivety.

I also, to a degree, think that he has a future in gaming but with who, I can't imagine who with, but some one will pick him up and I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't vouch for Kewk as well however I do think that the rest of the Dev's who worked on the project, who have not been envolved in game's development for that long, will be the one's who pay the ultimate price as I think it will be their future's that are over if any. But on the topic of budget and pricing, this game doesn't look that cheap any more. Server rental's are killing people's wallet's even though they still blindly throw money at Sergey and in some cases get nothing, there are still people waiting for private server's now after putting an order in a week ago and in game currency for item's that frankly are nothing more than an illusion is extorting even more money out of the gamer's wallet. There are cheaper way's of getting a thrill and enjoying yourself than investing in this game.

Tbh Donkey, I'm not surprised. I think it is the only way people like Kewk and Snowfox could get work is if they were hired by someone they were in bed with. I don't find it coincidental that they all ended up under the same roof. What is it that they say? "Bird's of a feather flock together". Sadly, it seem's that Sergey's future is in the hand's of the gaming community. I don't think that any of his future releases will achieve this level of "success" but by now, the name "Surgey Titov" must be branded into the memory of anyone who takes a serious interest in the game industry and, maybe, avoided. Otherwise for every project of his that we buy into and support, we are just allowing the same thing to happen and how many time's is enough before people say that it is now once too often?

So you are saying he would fit in fine with Zynga? This was brought up after Big Rigs, and unfortunately the people involved with that company went on to have other jobs in the industry. Shipped titles matter more than ethics to some companies. Sergey is somehow great at landing investors, he talks a big game and to suits who have never played a game in their life his promises sound good. Also shovel-ware does make it's money back from kids who get their parents to buy it and people who want to try it out just to see how bad it is.
The only way to make him fade is to talk with our wallets. Blacklist Sergey and anyone else involved with Stellar Stone, Hammerpoint, Arktos, or his other shell LLCs. Even then scum will find a way to rise, it's just a sad reality in our money driven world. Someone will try to make money off the gullible. As wise men once said There's a sucker born every minute, and a fool and his money are soon parted.

personally I don't think Sergey should be allowed to use the internet for the rest of his useless life without adult supervision.

I'm sure the russian mafia would find another profession to put him in.
