Another husk to throw on the ever-growing MMOrgue pile. Any of you shedding a tear?

I feel badly for those that still were enjoying it, but there was a three month warning that the game was coming off life support.

This was CCP's massive idiocy writ large. Instead of making a complimentary ground/planet-based MMO with similar time-based progression and massive skill trees, they decided instead to link their space MMO with a FPS PlanetSide clone. And then didn't make it available for PC gamers... where their MMO was exclusively PC.

Dumb dee dumb dumb dumb.

I already shed my tears for Warhammer Online, WoW, and Stargate Worlds.

MMORPGS are not like other games. When one is shutting down, it should go open source, so that those who love that world can stay in it.

I agree that going open source would be the 'right' thing to do, but when you get an IP that is a licensed money maker, that option is not so easy. SWGEmu projects have to go at at it with no old source code assistance, but at least Disney is leaving them alone. The vanilla WoW Nostralrious project was forced to close down by Blizzard. City of Heroes (now shuttered) players are still trying to find an MMO in the making that represents their old 'home'.

Recent MMOs (and the millennial players that have entered the MMO sphere) are shallow enough not to have such a loyal following. MMOs are a dime a dozen now and most not worth the download.
