    Whatever happens, I think AO should be preserved as "culturally and aesthetically significant" along with Ultima Online and WoW.
    Someone (be it Arty or another software company) should buy the IP and run a server indefinitely even if there are 5 players online at a time

    Honestly, it's not. Speculation and endless interpretations of a single sentence takes people nowhere.

    What would help immensely is a statement here in the forums from michi or someone from FC what it actually means.
    But I doubt that we will get one.

    Next official message will probably be the ceremony of the 16th birthday or so.

    Let's clarify a few things:
    1. The game's not shutting down. Not today, not tomorrow, probably not next year.
    2. The statement that's been floating around is "No further ***significant*** work is expected to be done on this project going forward." This has already been true for years, now they're admitting it.
    3. Seems no one read the actual report. They quite clearly say "Additionally, the company will keep developing and supporting the existing MMORPG's (Plural, mind you), as they are an important source of revenue and drive the internal IP's." Or, to put it simply, it's still cash flow positive.
    4. People so eager to announce they're /wrist'ing their subs are just drama queens looking for attention. No, we really don't care.

    Reality is, Funcom needs to focus on surviving as a company, and telling investors... "We know the game is old, but we're going to keep it going because a bunch of people still really like it." isn't really a bad thing.

    TL;DR - Literally nothing is different. It's just a report stating what we already know.
    Vinkera is right, it won't shutdown in a while, years possibly, but....
    In my personal opinion, i've played this game for 14+ years and truly have everything i can possible want or need, so if development *totally* halts i don't feel that there is any point in continue paying to play.
    If i want to be social i will log a froob toon and have some fun in chat with org/the few friends still in game or whatever.
    Don't you just hate this kind of ppl

    Unless the game requires a lot of servers and bugfixes, it can run for a long time. And yes I mean that what exploits we have now is not a big deal money wise.

    I've seen a game run for over 4 years without any dev at my job and it was still making a small profit when we pulled the plug.

    Why would you pull the plug if it was making profit?

    In my experience because what little resources it does take could be used on something making a higher profit. Nothing really runs by it self. Somewhere someone pays a bill or reads an e-mail, and they could be doing that for a more profitable project.

    Just to clarify the content of my post : From research, nobody really seems to know what maintenance mode means.
    It could also mean, and the second part is most likely not the case : "Games will be put in maintenance mode, when they have achieved all their goals, and the game is 100% percent bug free."

    I didn't make this post because I'm angry, I'm more curious to see people's view, because a lot of players have a passion for this game specially the long-time/old school players. And I most definitely agree, games don't last forever, and I am surprised AO has lasted this long yet. Truth be told, we are kind of spoiled with AO, because no MMO is like it and personally, it makes me dislike the other MMO's a bit.. (Yes. I admit being spoiled by AO..)

    Anywho - I look forward to reading more of your thoughts/views. And ignore people saying that you should quit simply because you want to share your thoughts. I like to see what people come up with.

    i don't know what happend or what we can expect. every person translate the words in other meanings.
    On fact is, is that michi is still working on conan exiles (1/5 of his time for ao - it feels like). funcom need every developer for these game and now for TSW (more job offers are on the website).
    Conan Exiles must be finished at Q1 2018.

    I think it's clear that we can't expect any new playfields, rebalancing or other stuff that need much time. Many people are frustrated about that, me too. I would like to have new ingame updates :*(

    What we can expect is, that they fix the necessary bugs and some exploits. I think they need some time for that (days/weeks), but they will do it.


    Some people will leave these game and the other people staying. And the negative marketing atm on steam and internet won't help AO.

    Maintenance mode simply means that active development has stopped. This means that AO will most likely continue to exist in it's current state (barring future bugfixes and such) until it eventually loses profitability and gets shut down. There will be no new expansions, no new content, no advertising, no new features. It'll stay just like it is /right now/. Only maybe with bugfixes and such, if they find the time for it after the TSW relaunch.
