Aaand that is how they DIE.
When your entire existence is propped up by fan support and FANS ONLY—because god knows nobody else takes up the franchise because you ain't done shit that broke into mainstream—and you punish said fans for propping you up and promoting your franchise, kinda for free, without you having to spend nothing on it,
then you fucked up.
GW better have some kinda Richard Branson backing them up if they was willing to just fuck the fans over the potential
money they could be losing through fanworks.
