Blizzard for all intents and purposes made Nost sign legally binding agreement with them during their 'meeting in good faith'. That's why they got them by the balls, now they are actually, legally and literally bound.

It's very similiar to the case of yesteryear when a hacker released Half Life 2 alpha just before it's release date. Valve invited him in and he thought he'd be employed due to his mad hack skills, rather than being sued and punished as he was. Blizzard merely handled it more tactfully because they knew how volatile the whole matter around vanilla subject is.

Let's just call this what it is: a bunch of devs getting wined and dined by blizzard, then having a nice threat of a lawsuit tucked into each of their jackets as they left.

I think they made the mistake of visiting blizzard in the first place because they lost all of their leverage in doing so...and by leverage I mean anonymity. Lawsuits work better when you have real life names attached to them.

They were excited about defying blizzard by releasing everything to elysium only to get another knock on the door. That 2nd knock is key because it would have been when the token generator "Just stopped working". Nost pulled the plug on it so as to not dump even more fuel on the fire, then shoots off this half-assed response because they're in over their heads.

I dunno...this scenario is less rapey.
