Ok, so there's no actual sharks involved...
In response to yesterday's comments by Paul Barnett, Mark Jacobs just wants to let us know that EA does know how to launch an MMO, and that there won't be any sharks fed in the launching of Warhammer Online.
Well first you've got to understand that Paul is Paul. He's very sarcastic. He tries to be very funny - he usually is. He can be a bit irreverent. And so you need to look at anything he said in the interview from that perspective. Second, in terms of GOA: we had done a deal with GOA before EA bought us. So the idea that we went with GOA because supposedly EA doesn't know anything about doing online games is just not true. There was no EA in the picture. So that was one part of it.
In the interview, Mark goes on to talk about all the essentials leading up to launch day - server stability, guesses about how long before the cities are sacked... those kinds of things.
