Sometimes it is all bad

One of the big pieces of MMO news this week was that Turbine had layoffs.  Sadly, I am no stranger to this depressing event.  I did play WAR for years.  Often times I felt as Syp did, that Mythic should follow up their bad news with something positive.  Some message of reassurance would have gone a long way.

Looking back on it, I now realize there was no good news to be had.  WAR was in a downward spiral.  Is this the case for LoTRO?  I don't know, I'm not nearly knowledgeable enough.  Sometimes there is just no good news, positive spin or reassurance to give.  Then we end up with silence which is toxic for a MMO.
