NCsoft: Follow The Bouncing Money

Adam Martin breaks down the (not very) hidden subtext behind the recent NCsoft ‘restructurings’.

All this waffle about becoming “a unified organization under NC West”, and the reporting by bloggers and journalists that this was “consolidating” the subsidiaries and offices (they were already consolidated, you know) … what a load of crap. Follow the money, guys: who has the power now, and what unites those people? And if the answer is “nothing”, then ask yourself: who stands to benefit from an exec team comprised of individuals that are likely to be in conflict?

Look at the Directors of NC West:

  1. Jeff Strain – Co-founder of Arena.Net, Director of Arena.net
  2. Chris Chung – Director of Arena.Net
  3. Pat Wyatt – Co-founder of Arena.Net, Director of Arena.net
  4. David Reid – only started working at NCsoft 2 months ago

Notice a pattern?
