And, as ever, a sense of community links back to the days of Westwood. Lion is knowing in this respect; a form of mutual appreciation rarely seen since. It'll be VERY interesting to see if Petroglyph exploit EA's weakness here and offer a much more personal relationship with their fans. A faceless corporation is nothing to a community. A community, by definition, is not built on individuals without an identity... a corporate identity simply doesn't suffice.

As you should. It might seem obvious, but it must also have seemed obvious to the suits @ EA that people who rose through a small, intimate company like Westwood would not take kindly to a focus on profit margins rather than quality.

I think the redirection of WOL traffic to XWIS and the release of "C & C the Next Decade" will garner a resurgance in traffic to these websites and fuel more news, as we have recently seen Happy

Hopefully all that news won't be about downtime though! Wink

Petroglyph have already taken over EA in the sense of getting involved in the community.

It's not out of the ordinary to see Delphi or some of the other Petro guys posting on community websites and forums.
