SOE still runs it and its now F2P. Very little has been added though they promise. SOE has pretty much a server monitor on the game and thats it. PS2 has been thier focus along with EverQuest Next. I would not be surprised if Vanguard is some how rolled into EQN.

Yeah it may still technically be running but it I would argue that it is still pretty much dead anyway. EverQuest Next does sound interesting though. I guess time will tell if it is any good or not.
take as much offense as you want but screw SWG. it had it's time and wasn't "pulled early".
NcSoft should have their collective balls castrated and forbidden to ever makle a MMO again. Time and time again they have pulled games that have been actually succeeding or pulled games for "political" reasons rather than allowing them the chance to succeed.
To add insult to injury several "ex-ncsoft" games have been attempted to be resurected (as emulators) by a loyal fanbase only to have NcSoft step in and threaten legal action unless the partiees cease.
I voted for Tabula Rasa, it had an interesting premise behind it, had great potential when they fixed some of the bug and lag issues, and was one of the few sci-fi games out there compared to the billion fantasy based games.
Earth and Beyond would have gotten my second vote. While Eve is "similar" it wasn't to my liking as I do not want a second job in order to play.
I am also eagerly awaiting defiance and "the repopulation" as they both have a base storyline that is appealing to me at this time.
Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!
Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!
There was Nothing that 'failed' about City of heroes, nariusseldon. It was a thriving game, making money with the best support community and devolpment studio I have ever seen in over 15 years of playing MMOs.
It was murdered by NCSoft. No explanation. A kinfe in the back and it was gone. They fired everyone at Paragon Studios on the same day they announced to the playes that the game was closing. The bastards didn't even give the development team a chance to say goodbye to the players.
Ok people. I made this thread asking what dead games people would like to see revived.
I DID NOT make this thread to have it turn into a "xxx game sucked and deserved to die"

Tabula Rasa and E&B would be my 3rd/4th choice
Originally posted by dreamscaper It's not reallyl kosher to post entries like "Vanilla WoW" or "SWG pre-NGE." Doing so is essentially just voting for your favorite MMORPG experience, which isn't what this poll is about.
Not sure what changed along the way with WoW for people to put different catagories on it, but SWG pre-cu versus SWG nge were practically two totally different games. Would I love to play pre-cu again? Yes, preferably with some tweaks to stats and fixes to bugs, or any game that had those same features with some improvements. Would I want nge to come back? Why? Other than the star wars theme, there are plenty of other pick a single class and level it via a series of questlines MMOs out there. Sure it also had a great community but at least part of that community was born out of the pre-cu era when people needed other players (for crafted items, heals, and buffs) and could freely group with others (none of this "oops, too big of a difference in our levels stuff).
For me it was SWG .. but it would need some fixes. It would need to be the Pre-CU version with a few added tweeks.
If you are talking just brining back as it was when it went down .. then change that to COH.
Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!
Earth and Beyond for me.

Earth And Beyond , just LOVED that game and a close second is SWG Pre NGE, to bad EA Closed EAB down, was a fantastic game, would have given eve a run for its money.
Shadowbane for me.
I mean CoH/V is obvious, but there will probably be a part 2 for it. SB just had everything a real pvper could ask for and I enjoyed the depth of character progression. It was difficult, and you had to tweak it, but any race / type / class combo could be played entirely crafted to suit the player and be much different from one person to the next. Yet still be effective as long as you followed tactics and contributed as part of an army, not just a team.
One day maybe we'll see a game of that scale in a real next gen system.
MINOTAUR BARBARIAN FTW!!!
a yo ho ho
Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, DN, EVE, EQ1, EQ2, ESO, FE, FFXI, FFXIV, FF, GW1, GW2, Istaria, L2, LoTRO, MO, MxO, NW, Rift, RoE,Ryzom, SB, SWG, SWTOR, TERA, TSW, WAR, WoW, WURM...
Would say AC2, but since it was relaunched a few days ago I'll go with my second choice. Tabula Rasa!
But wouldn't mind seeing SWG and CoH back one day.
Originally posted by nariusseldon None. I like innvoations, and new games, not old rehash of failed ones.
I really hate innovations because people's sick wish for "innovation" have ruined many could be good games.
From my other post: What?? New Mercedes have also 4 wheels??? Uaaaa.... fail, fail, fail, ... bad Mercedes, bad, bad, ... uaaa.....
Is not problem with games, problem is with people.
Well I voted for City of Heroes.
its the most worthy game on the list. *IMHO*
