Frogster kicked as EU host?

Just had an promotional eMail for TERA at Gamescom. Odd thing is that the eMail was sent by GameForge and the website (tera-europe.com) now goes to the GameForge site.

Has this to do with Frogster als going to host RaiderZ, or just a general incompetence they have punished by BHS?

    Frogster board of directors was very aware of the terrible brand-name rep it had. So they voted to change the company's name to Gameforge Berlin about a month ago. They made a little announcement on their website back then.

    Gameforge IS Frogster under a new name. They're hoping most people won't realize it. Just change what you mentally associate with the name Frogster to the name Gameforge.

    TY for clarifying that one. I always thought GameForge was an other company than Frogster was. If I knew this, I'd never had my Aion account transferred to them :(

    Gameforge actually is something different. It is a name that already exists since 2003 and they focus on browser based games.

    So Frogster renamed to GameForge Berlin? That sure is confusing. Apparently there was some kind of sneaky merger 2 years ago.

    Frogster's name is crap with release's like Rune's of Magic,

    they've screwed over alot of players and I for one won't

    play their garbage anymore. I wanted to speak out about

    how TERA does'nt have a chance because Frogster treats

    it's gameplayers like $hit. I'm waiting for them to come out

    with Beta BG zones that are buggy as hell but in their eyes

    are working as intended. Tera will go ftp by years end if not

    sooner.

    I can't help feeling a half decent EU publisher would absolutely clean up, most are absolute pants.

    Gameforge bought-merged Frogster.
