- SWG - This actually was mainly shutdown due to the massive player exodus of NGE changes (I was there and pissed off when I found out my pre-patch jedi was now just like all the new easymode jedi). This caused a very large profit loss that even the knucklehead himself (John Smedley) admitted was a mistake. He couldn't make a case for LucasArts to renew the license as Bioware was already going to take the market with the then new SWTOR and SWG simply wasn't worth the headache anymore for them due to the community outrage and financial loss for SOE.
- Matrix Online - Again this falls under the same reason I listed this game, profits. I also played AO/WoW/MO during this time, I really enjoyed MO and was saddened when it was shutdown as I thought we could ride out the waves. But again, the suits at SOE had the final say.
- E&B - Again, I used this because it was shutdown due to profit loss nothing more.
- AC - Glad we can agree on something there.
I can understand you labeling me as one of the reddit army people, but I'm actually trying to give sense as to why those type of people are acting how they are. I also agree with you on the delusion part and I want the middle ground as well! Hell, I still play Anarchy Online, and I love it! But I am shrinking down my accounts from 5 to 2 just because of life changes and I can't justify to myself spending that much on a game that I personally feel like I could lose all my progress at some point. Although, any online game has that risk and I understand that, it's just my own sentiment. Either way, I actually want to thank you Avari for an actual decent reply rather than just an outrage towards my post, you are right, I did use some of the games a bit out of context and I apologize.
