XOOM

Organization of CRS

40 posts in this topic

Cornered Rat Software has been its own entity and is the exclusive developer of WWII Online, as agreed upon by a written contract with Playnet, Inc. Therefore we are in partnership working towards the very best WWIIOL possible. 

The entire team at CRS is part of that organization and the intent of creating that organization was to formalize our operations further. 

In 2012 when the company had crashed primarily due to the previous investors pulled out, I had to rebuild the company by hand. The folks who have joined me in this great endeavor are now part of this organization CRS, that I manage, and have managed for a couple of years now formally, but have really been managing for several more years as you should all know by now by my physical presence, everywhere.

The reason I am telling you all of this, is because someone(s) has seen fit to attempt to tarnish our reputation as a credible team and company by insinuating that we are using recently obtained campaign funds in an attempt to do harm / take over certain things.

This is grossly inaccurate and an extraordinary case of misinformation with intent to do harm.

I will make myself personally available to answer questions that you may have (anyone), and what I can say is that you can be assured that the campaign contributions donated are going to good works for WWIIOL's benefit, as planned and scheduled.

Specifically, I am from the state of Oregon so naturally this business is headquartered here, and the articles of incorporation / yearly renewal is $100 on each event, paid out of my own personal pocket.

Please be sure not to step into the tin foil hat realm and assume the worst, We have been operating in this manner for a couple of years now, and we have gained momentum / worked even harder for WWIIOL.

Thanks for your read and understanding.

Matt "Xoom" Callahan
President and CEO

I’ve no idea what’s been going on, but if anyone’s making unfounded allegations then they should be ashamed of themselves. 

Without Xoom and CRS2.0 we’d have no game.  They have my total support.

We were contacted by a couple of players with concerns about CRS using recently obtained funds via our funding campaign, to create CRS as an entity with the intent of taking over the company and/or intellectual property.

The players who contacted us informed us that there were rumors going around which were discovered primarily through private networking. This network extends to a small group of players who fall into the category of banned and/or disgruntled who actively seek ways to tarnish CRS’s reputation.

In this case they pointed towards a business renewal form available online to use that as ammunition to validate their false claims. CRS was formed as its own entity in March 2017 and was renewed on April 6th 2018, one year apart, which is a standard renewal time for the Secretary of State - Corporation Division, of any state in the United States.

So there’s nothing significant presented here other than standard business operations, and enemies of CRS are intentionally trying to be divisive and disruptive. CRS has responded with clarity on what all of that means and that it has been in effect for a couple of years now, so there’s nothing new, or concerning. On the contrary it shows that CRS 2.0 has matured, is a formal organization, and is working consistently towards the betterment of WWII Online.

So you're saying the money doesn't go to hookers and blow?

 

How depressing...

I don’t understand why the idea of taking over intellectual properties would harm the company/game/funders/players? Anything needed (on the business point of view) that may ease the management and the survival of the project would be welcome.

A lawyer's letter and a threat of a defamation suit would make them STFU. You should either contact Lob12 (about to become a lawyer) or even better -offer the case on a commission basis to Stormy Daniel's lawyer. He'll get you money and PR. 

For more information on how to contact Stormy, just check out her visit to Off-Topic and the NDA Silky signed with her - only cost OT $136K.
