Tabula Rasa: Wrangling Rumors

Posted Tue, Feb 19, 2008 by Shayalyn

Everybody's Starting Rumors

Rumors of a financial apocalypse at NCsoft circulated throughout the community yesterday, prompting responses from players and even members of the Tabula Rasa team. Where did it all start and how much truth is there to the story?  Is reading a financial report really as boring as watching golf on TV? RadarX examines what we know, what we don't, and what is very likely just made up.

There is nothing some people enjoy more than a juicy rumor. A tidbit about your coworker stealing office supplies or perhaps the identity of who is swiping lunches from the breakroom refrigerator. In the gaming industry we see rumors all the time and while it's our job to report them, it's ultimately more important to get to the bottom of what's going on. While they usually involve exactly what game Blizzard is really working on, or what project will likely be canceled, at times it involves the financial health of an entire company.
