It lives?

I'm kind of surprised by the fact this game is still alive.  I remember playing it back during the lull between Vanilla World of Warcraft and the Burning Crusade.  Mostly noteworthy for being a bit on the grindy side.   Anyone else kind of wondering why someone would buy up and revive this game?

    It keeps dying and being brought back to life. It's in beta again.

    Seriously?  Now I'm curious as to what they are changing in the actual game.

    Probably not. I'm assuming it was popular in Korea or something which is why these companies keep thinking it will make them profit. Then they buy it, put it online again, then it dies out because they didn't advertise it. It keeps happening in that cycle. Yet I still cannot figure out why. There must be some aspect of the game that is different than generic MMORPG's.

    It's that Lightfoot skill. I kept going back to it because I enjoyed the idea of "you need to use these skills and level them up to reach their full potential."

    Was quite suprised today that I suddenly got a mail from 9dragons. Seems it is indeed still alive.. somehow

    For me it died that day acclaim suddenly dropped it.

    That was definitely the best feature that I can remember. I don't quite know why other games don't try out different mechanics. Instead it's typically the same stagnant boring crap, but oh well.
