I am used to games shutting down.
This game is is like a boat sailing away without a captain and no one is even home to shut it down.
I have read the official forums (hasn't let me post there since I stopped paying months ago). I still see AV talking about what used to be a big expansion (years ago) stringing people along but I don't think anyone believes them any more. It looks like hardly anyone is playing any more.
Even if they ever get DF2.0 out the door I am not sure if I will ever come back due to lack of trust in the developers. Any mmo needs consistent updating for content, fixing, and balance. But a game like this needs to keep on top of the cheating and AV has proven to not be capable of either.
They only thing the seem to be able to due is keep the server actually running lol.
My best guess is they intended this large patch that got out of hand and decided on making a re-release. Then Greece went crazy and they got distracted, people stopped playing in scores, they further got distracted, less and less money and now they are struggling to survive not only with hardly money coming in but with all the problems going on in Greece.
Any of you previous / current players holding on to any hope on this one?
The MO forums look to be more optimistic but I have no idea if the pvp is any good there or if I want to start playing another potential sinking shit. They seem to be holding on the hope of some patching coming out soon and I see no reason to try that until I know if that pans outs as well.
It is too bad another decent company doesn't trying a gameplay style like DF. It is the best game out there to play from a pvp stand point.
