Game Company NCSoft, which has announced the sunsetting of profitable MMORPG City of Heroes, saw its stocks slide to a 52 week low on Friday.

This after an earlier plunge brought on by news that Guild Wars 2 had sold only 2 million copies, rather than the 6 million projected, based on the overall sales of the original Guild Wars.

There is speculation that stockholders are jittery, faced with the wall of negative publicity generated by angry and determined City of Heroes players.

It probably does not help NCSoft's reputation that they are planning to replace City of Heroes with Blade and Soul, a game so perilously close to soft-core pornography crossed with asian martial arts, that angry players are dubbing it "Boobs and Shame" or "Bits and Tits."
