    You know what, to me that does not make sense. The reason I say that is if it was one translator moving then that person might not have been accepted because of the agreement you mentioned. But if there is a whole flock of them and especially those that have started on gravity, it looked there might have been a much more serious reason for the move than the easy license.

    To me, there was clearly something that gravity did that didn't make them feel at home and wanted out. For people to reach that point, especially a lot of them, means something has gone seriously wrong.

    This is only my opinion from what I have read and I have no facts to prove what happened behind the door so read this with a pinch of salt.

    1) TMW and MW decided to move to WW because they feared Gravity won't be able to the the licenses.
    2) GGP tried to avoid morenovels leaving in the future and tried to bind other translators to Gravity with something? (just pure speculation here)
    3) Exodus started because the other translators didn't like the way Gravity wanted to move forward (Read some posts from translators hinting this).

    the fact that its still being translated is what makes me skeptical.

    even if its not, it certainly had releases between the Gravity/WW event and the Qidian/WW event.

    As I said, Arron translated BTTH 100% at this moment and only he can decide when to stop it.

    Ah, ok. Definitely possible because of that second point. But I have a feeling it was not that simple, especially that first point. But no use speculating on this.

    I'm not 100% sure that the "exodus" happen because Licence issue with QI. Breaker, GoC, ATD which are korean also move out from GT.

    Some parts may be speculation, but I think it was more about how QI was planning on taking over WW, but with their refusal they showed that they (WW) had more stability. And Gravity, on the other hand, seemed like they might have caved in and work for QI which is something those translators didn't want.

    They do care about their face when its convenient for them but they won't hesitate to crush anything that gets in their way, its a bit of a Chinese thing really. unforunatly the online free translators don't have much of a foothold in these cases because those Chinese publishers will make damn sure to hide everything that could possibly cause trouble for them

    It is legally binding. It is not a bad word. If someone says they are going to do something and you agree. You've set the terms for the contract. It can be enforced. Also given the fact that WW has a written licensing agreement.. The oral contract can be solidified by RWX because he was the written agreement from a previous negotiation. It isn't a leap of logic and law to see what is going on.

    Please bear in mind that things that may have been true over a year ago when you were a member are not necessarily still correct.

    It is a he said she said.. But if you have previous documentation and written communication (can be taken as an oral contract as it is not in a "written" contract form). It's all in the prep.

    Once again, the copyright mafia show it's stupidity and total inability to understand a fanbase.
