Tim's Final Post

30 October 2013 - 03:43 PM

I write this not as EA_Tim, but as private citizen Tim Morten, and this will be my final post in these forums.
 
I want to express my sincere thanks to the many community members who participated in the alpha.  Just as the project was a labor of love for the team, I know those of you who poured hours into giving us feedback share the team's disappointment about the cancellation.  
 
As a project and as a team we were committed to striving for excellence, and though there will always be detractors, I sincerely believe that we were on the way to creating something great.  I'm sad that we didn't get to complete the journey with you - whether you were our staunchest supporter or our harshest critic, you have my personal thanks for participating, and I wish you all the best.
 
Farewell,
Tim

I wish you good luck, find good job and create a lot of beatifull games, BUT! I AM HAPPY THAT IT HAPPENED! you hit me right in the heart .................. no, soul,.. when turned my favorite part of the C&C series in this F2P misunderstanding. I do not regret having bought the ultimate collection. I bought it out of a desire to get into the beta, and out of respect and nostalgia. Thank God that this monster is not born. I will always remember the generals of the very game of my childhood.

From what I am reading about the new EA CEO and his cronies profile we can expect them putting all EA's money in sport videogames, Sims and portables.

We must all invest more in making a good time for everyone, including ourselves.

Hi Tim,

 

this is really shocking... I really enjoyed playing the Alpha already!

 

Since you and your team are unemployed now, ever thought of completing this game with crowdfunding? E.g. kickstarter or something similar?

 

For sure you can't use the CC brand, but you can call it e.g. wargenerals or something similar :)

 

However, I just want to let you know, that I was waiting for a RTS game like this for years. Who needs campaigns? I usually do NOT play them. I usually play with some friends 4v4 maps against 4 CPU player and this is always fun!

 

So, I hope your spirit will not die, just because EA doesn't see anymore enough customers willing to pay millions of dollars :unsure:

 

Hope I will hear again form you!

 

Best Regards

linus

All the best VG and all the team, this game was  better than any other c&c game made by another studio since  long time!  I have no doubt you'll find jobs soon.

EA owns C&C. It's entirely up to EA what happens with C&C from here on.

Tim, this fucking sucks.

 

I am really sorry for all of this, it just hurts me to see C&C die (again), and your team disbanded. Best of luck in the future for you and the whole team. Sincerely.
