    It's only revenue so before all operating costs, taxes and investments are made. 36 million goes fast.

    Most likely not but when you consider basic costs for running this business, that money will go fast.

    -Legal costs
    -Privately negotiated investments (since not publicly traded) the company requires capital from somewhere
    -Employees
    -Server infrastructure
    and mainly reinvesting their revenues into new games, existing games etc.

    A mix of variable and fixed costs for running this kind of business will eat up that money easily.

    so all 36 mil + investment money is simply going to paying bills and they are net 0? what part of my post said they have 36 million dollars to invest into rift? the thread topic is a twist on a popular song, i apologize that you did not catch that sir neckbeard.

    what part of his post implied that he thought you said they had 36million to invest?

    Okay, now let's look at a list like, PC gamers top 10 rated PC games.

    One list matters to players, one matters to the corporation. Sadly I think the above mentioned one used to matter much more to the company. This like, sums up my disdain for cash shops. Woo hoo, look at us compete for who gets the most money! WoW is probably up there anyway due to sheer popularity, or would have been high ranked. I get that a popular game at any era would have high sales and be high ranked. But it is funny looking at the games that pull the most cash. You can almost tell it's the ones that design their structure in a way that subtly obligates a lot of cash from the customer to feel like a true participator.

    To clear up the confusion, this chart examines the revenue of companies with mmo's.

    Revenue = (price of product)*(units sold)

    Profit = Revenue - (Fixed Costs + Variable Costs)

    Profit = Total capital that CAN be reinvested.

    so:

    36 million - (Fixed Costs and Variable Costs) = Investment funds.

    not sure your point. as you said that includes reinvesting in existing games. nothing I posted suggested anything about the number or their business practices, I merely asked for a small 10,000 investment into CQ which is around 100 man hours

    lol I wasn't making a point against you, I was just clarifying an article which should have explained what they meant by revenue.

    Also poor programmers who have to spend that much time working on CQ, I couldn't imagine spending that much time even in CQ.

    can you blame them though? they are a business not a non profit. their goal is to make money and keep people spending. and while I have spent no money on rift I have spent lots of plat on Rex keeping others with reason to continually spend their money on the rex

    Sprawlnbrawl, one question...is your signature picture from Trion Worlds. Because the guy wearing his shirt looks like Ocho if you think about it for a second.

    I would have sent you a pm, but it says you exceeded your max pm storage.
