This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Worst Rpg Company
« on: January 16, 2023, 12:51:38 PM »
With all this Ogl crap going on, I think it's time to think about the worst Rpg Company. So In your opinion what is the worst Rpg Company, in terms of how they treat their fans, and the quality of their products. For me Wotc is a big contender of course but, I also think that Evil Hat publishing is also up their. Anyways what are Your thoughts?

IMHO:
Contenders for the first place would be WotC & GW followed closelly by Evil Hat.

Forgot about Gw but, they aren't really a rpg Company.

Hard to say.  This is what is known in some circles as a "target rich environment."

Paradox, White Wolf Wolf, Renegade Studios... whatever the fuck head of the beast is that's been putting out 5E World of Darkness books.

At least, they currently have the most of my ire.

Games Workshop by an unfathomable degree. Wizards is only trying to achieve what GW dominates for decades.

Cubicle 7. Various others have published previously, e.g. Hogshead and Fantasy Flight Games, but Cubicle 7 are the current publisher.

What's wrong with Palladium? Kevin Siembieda might have issues running a business, but he doesn't actively despise anyone who buys his games.
It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance.

He's very aggressive with C&D against anyone putting out fan content for his games. I don't know if he despises them, but he sure treats them like shit. Haven't heard him being any better to the writers.

No, he just hates his writers. Because they all suffer from the crime of "Not being Kevin Seimbieda" as far as I can tell.

Still a big Palladium fan, but...

I'll nominate Peterson Games for having several unfulfilled kickstarters, all of which have dragged on for years, then they send these BS announcements just stretching things out further without ever responding to actual queries about progress.  At this point, they should just declare bankruptcy and/or shut down rather than continue the sham that they will actually finish anything.  Some of these are board games so that might not count for purposes of the discussion, however.
