It all depends on experience, it's not something I talk about publicly as we are in a competitive industry and these sorts of discussions end up with our competitors.

Yeah, that's fair enough - You know I mean a certain type of "kid", the ones FaceBook is famous for.

o.0, I would've thought at this climate there would be more supplies than demands for game programmers where employers can offer a low salary and still have 1000 applicants fighting for it.

Programing for games is the hardest programming you could ever face, it's always hard to find good people and while we do tend to keep people for a long time when we get them I still don't ever want to give the competition an easier task in recruitment.

It really wasn't a big deal. I saw his post and decided I'd put up with enough of his BS so banned him - it wasn't something that required a lot of thought.

He'd been clearly warned and should have known better.

Ross must feel a bit like Geoff Toovey at times....I hope I am wrong, because Big Ant really "get it". If only they had the freedom to do the whole game autonomously like DBC.

There's always friction between publishers and developers, it's the nature of the beast. Up until now though we've always resolved things amicably and behind closed doors, presenting a unified front - that's how it should be done.

Keith Banned.......ROSS!!!!!! How do you give rep points on this forum. Honestly this scrawny geek has been on the scene for 5 minutes and demonstrated little respect for what you guys are trying to do. Personally I never cared what he had to say on here given his distinct lack of knowledge on anything relevant to the sport. We might as well be discussing basketball. Keith..... the nephew of Dave Smith??
Keith some respect for your elders and someone who has been around for a long time....you started all this garbage, not to mention....THIS IS BIG ANT"S FORUM!!!! Back to facebook with the rest of your kind....
I personally love that Ross stands up for himself and is NOT subservient to the publisher. No nonsense, direct and to the point. You would make an honorary German.
hey ross, can you tell us whether or not BigAnt will developing Rugby League games beyond Rugby League Live 3?
Seriously I go out for a couple of hours and.....

Keith will have little to no bearing on anything that Big Ant do.

Outside of Tru Blu the chances of him surviving long term in this industry are incredibly limited.
