Don't bother being curious. It WAS the most fantastic MMO to ever exist, but NCSoft (the publisher) is pulling the plug, for reasons that have not been adequately explained. It goes offline forever tomorrow night.
Yeah, but that's not much comfort. For god's sake, they were just about to release a whole load of new content and fixes that everyone was looking forward to... they were advertizing the new upcoming stuff in their store and everything.
Never, EVER buy from NCSoft. This is only the latest (and worst) in a history of killing games.
We've been trying to get them to do that for the three months since they announced the shutdown and they have obstinately refused to say a word.
Efforts are underway to try and keep pressure on for them to sell, maybe to someone really big like Disney (because Disney is damn good at putting pressure on, the fans just have to get them interested), but the future's just about as bleak as it could ever be.
