    Interesting, very interesting. How will this affect other Planets. The Company that has control over balancing is running an own Planet again. Anyone else seeing a conflict of interests in that? Time will tell.....

    Ok cool..
    I have the planet partner application.. its a pdf file that I use adobe reader to read and fill out (just to prove I really have it) the only tease I have yet to fill it out is because I still would like to participate in the planet like everyone else..

    Especially if Mindark controls the loot system..

    So can I as a planet partner participate like everyone else does.. if not then I have no interest in filling the application out.. I like to play the game..
    Please help me with this I have yet received any official word on this..

    We all must wait and see how things pan out, but for now none of the SEE new planets are listed on the upcoming roster anymore, nor is SEE listed as a PP.

    it means it was a dumb idea and has been canceled?

    yeah. however, I think this is good news. with MA running calypso, they'll be back having first hand experience with what's happening. and, FPC forum will be an access point to MA (not that I expect too much there).

    what the real story is, we may never know. SEE paid MA six million dollars for calypso. if MA canceled the contract, there will be some reimbursement owed to SEE. I wonder what happened to cause the rift - and, if the FPC people who joined SEE are coming back to MA.

    Wasn't it in the financials that they had paid the first instalment, but then had not paid any more after that?

    Can't find anything about Marco in the Swedish business register thats has anything to do with EU. He was lsited in there as CEO of FPC and on the board of SDS Calypso LTD, but not anymore.

    Would I be completely out of line to suggest that quite possibly SEE saw the writing on the wall after the launch and relative success of Arkadia and decided to pack it up as they could no longer make bank as they once were. Perhaps MA was not going to accomodate them with special privilidges over Arkadia? I would like to know what Mr Dobson knows about this... you know this probably made him giddy to read. That is unless it worries him about the Calypso/MA conflict of interest. Would be interesting to know.

    Well I don't think Arkadia had any impact on how this has turned out.
    Like you guys I do not know all the details as to what has occurred. I can say that I have full confidence in Mindark operating Planet Calypso fairly in relation to the other planet partners. Mindark operated Calypso for so many years I also have full confidence in their ability to operate Planet Calypso. It certainly didn't make me go giddy, in all honesty it really has almost no impact on Arkadia.

    As always, we'll just keep doing what we do, the way we like to do it. We work hard and fast and do our utmost to keep everyone informed of what we are doing.

    Since we only saw a post from MindArk and not an official statement.

    If I remember correct SEE bought FPC from MindArk. A 6million dollar deal and it would be paid in periods. Only last finical report stated SEE didnt pay MindArk a thing yet. So MindArk proably talked to SEE and asked where the money is. That proably turned that MindArk pulled it self from the deal because they didnt get the money. So I hope we see the rebirth of FPC again.
