WB Games draw from other games' mechanics.
– WB Games: "Life's good."
Other devs draw from Nemesis System.
– WB Games: "Wait, that's illegal."

Anyone else notice how Yong hardly ever misses? I can honestly say i’ve agreed with almost EVERY statement he’s said about companies like activision, EA, etc… dudes just such a good commentator it’s insane.

Why don't we just pattent the idea of "games" then. After all it's just a piece a software that's aim to entertain people.

Didn't warframe already implement something similar to the nemesis system?

Now, I wish EA to patent "surprise mechanics" and somebody else (let's say, Epic Games) to patent "batlepass" so no other companies can use these or similar shady practices anymore.

One of the reasons I wasn't interested in this game is because it seemed so derivative of other games.

If imma be honest with y'all:

I don't actually think it WB themselves that decided this. AT&T is like 110 billion dollars in debt right now and they're panicking using every asset they have to not go bankrupt.

I think this was a decision made by AT&T, that way any game dev that actually wants to use the nemesis system will have to pay them royalties.

So this basically kills the chances of a 3rd game existing, which is extremely sad because SoW is one of my all time favorite games.
