I’ve been following this news for a while, and its clear with the shakeup at Dice, EA is going to throw the checkbook at Ridgeline to fix the mess they’re in. BF1 had a great campaign and the decision to move away from it remains the franchises’ undoing. I bet Sony will throw money at them too with all the uncertainty around Call of Duty.

I didn’t know until I bought it (I didn’t research it enough) and on top of it, its Class A stock. I’m reconsidering my investment at this point.

This does fix the ownership issue, but it does not fix the:
- Excess CO2 usage with NFTs (another project under Ethereum is trying to fix this but it remains to be seen if forks will switch to proof of stake)
- Centralization of wealth and control via DAOs (this is a feature, not a bug)
- Ridiculousness of accountability of digital art ownership (this is a copyright law issue)
- Actively preventing art or IP theft (no copyright scheme can change the nature of bad actors)
NFTs are still dumb as hell, and this seems like another attempt by VC to close the barn door as the money flies out. I’d argue commissioning furry slash art contributes more to the economy than NFTs.

Microsoft is going to pull Call of Duty the second any exclusivity contract ends. We all know it. That’s not even why this deal shouldn’t be allowed, however. The amount of consolidation in the industry has to end.
