Okay, a few people have asked, so I shall clarify:
This game was doomed on first principles. I mean, Exalted isn't even balanced with itself. Even if you limit it to one power level ("all starting characters") and all within the one book (as boring as that gets), they're all over the place and no two characters can really play the same game. Also known as "Hey look, White Wolf made another game!"
That's before you get some people arguing that Solars get the best of everything and everyone else should have cheaper stuff, then others arguing that if you do that, Solars don't have anything special any more because their entire shtick is "generically being the best at everything and being the main characters of all the books*".
Were it just that, I'd take two weeks and write my own Exalted during the less busy hours at work, and it'd be pretty good**. But the fact of the matter is, this game was never going to work: everyone immediately went for high rank characters, the ones who make things happen. This would leave me with the following duties:
1. Playing lesser NPCs for them to abuse
2. Making monster of the week appear
1 is no good, because I'm not submissive. 2 is not interesting.
So "a successful Exalted game" can't happen because WW were useless at making games, and going bankrupt was the high point of the company. This particular game couldn't happen the moment it turned out everyone wants to be on top.
*Seriously, check out the special Lunar background, where you spend points to be extra dedicated to sucking a Solar's dick.
