Yea, its all from an audience pov, not from the company's internal pov; you don't know the main reasons for why they do certain things, you can only guess from reviews and sales records, theres a lot of money changing hands inside a company as they do business, all these factors and more count for why a game company might prolong past a conceivable end, or die out too soon.

Actually, the multipalyer, despite the PCs lack of properly managed servers and in-game chat, still managed to score highly with critics, they attributed the major downfall being to people not playing it enough, and not being able to find matches often enough, not that the online experiance wasn't fun.
Have you played COD World at War? their online services are almost exactly the same on PC, except you have chat and servers, things that are not critical to a good online game unless its a tactical simulation fps like oldschool rainbow six. So again, the problem here is people playing the game.

Exteel seemed to have suffered from the same problem I am addressing, which is not enough people playing it, and probably couldn't keep selling upgrades from the lack of players.

When it comes to Transformers video games, we're lucky to even get them considering how much of the rest of the world cares, I'm not saying your bashing it, I'm just saying people need to stop caring about things like "no jets" and try to actually have fun with whats there. Pretty sure lots of people stopped playing WFC after ranking up fully, coz all they cared about was ranking up.

Again, probably from a lack of gamers, who have so many other online games to choose from with a much more estabalished background, like gears of war. I'm not claiming the online structure of WFC is good, but it IS enough to have awesome couple matches, if you can find the players to play against.
