    If the alliance is reliant on budget allocations from the companies involved then surely it's being tackled in the wrong way?

    Then again, I've not seen anything positive come out of the alliance other than news chatter and frequent foot-in-mouth incidents from Epic...

    i personally won't count Epic as a pro-PC dev, so no, i don't think they've got any proper pro-PC dev left.

    +2, and prolly lots more...

    Looks Like this is the main problem with th PCGA. Too little ppl kwon whats that about. All i know it was born afeter that stupid "Tim Sweeney" (one of the founders of EPIC and dev of Unreal Engine) told that "PC gaming is dying"...

    So the guy that start it all is among the head of PCGA... Epic fail...

    There was nothing to the group to begin with. The only time anyone ever heard about them is when someone left or joined.

    I'm suprised Blizzard had money problems anyway, they must make loads of money with all of the subscriptions and everything.

    The money excuse is an easy cop out. They don't need to tell the other members that they're useless... just that they don't have the budget at this time.

    This is business. Any money spend should be an investment - I didn't hear (and as you can see above I'm not the only one) anything about this alliance, so what's the point in spending money?

    As Rage says above, Blizzard clearly can't see any commercial point to remaining in the alliance (and to be honest who would want to be associated with some of the things coming out of it atm...?) at the moment their investment has resulted in them being associated with many an epic fail.

    Blizzard would abandon the people that made it one of the most powerful companies in existence? Talk about biting the had that feeds them.

    Powerful? It's headed by the Epic pretty much, not to mention they don't really do anything anyways.
