A lot of folks moved to EVE, some to Jumpgate I think Darkspace may have picked up some subscribers too. EVE got the bull's share of the E&B refugees though since it's the most similar game to E&B out there.
Personally I'm still waiting for that "perfect" space MMO
C'mon folks... SOMEONE must wanna make "Privateer Online"
On a slightly more serious note I'm watching for the SWG Expansion to see what they do with 'spaceflight'. If they do it right I may finally go back to SWG.

"Also would like to see some MMORPG from Koei. Its not spaced based but I liked a old game called Inindo."
Inindo was one of the best RPGs I have ever seen. Good story which tied into actual history, being able to sabotage warlord castles and aid in those monthly wars between the different clans.... Now that was innovative.
Im hoping someday there will be another game like E&B. As far as playing EvE no way in Hell will i play that garbage !
Hey Billius8 aka Holler ?
I agree... NO way in hell!!!

You guys might want to check out Vendetta Online, new space mmorpg in development, dunno if it's what you're looking for but it's indeed another option:
Richard J. Cox"There were much of the beautiful, much of the wanton, much of the bizarre, something of the terrible, and not a little of that which might have excited disgust."
A Privateer Online, or perhaps something along the lines of Freelancer on-line would be a nice.While I really like EVE (my new home after Earth & Beyond), sometimes I miss the lighter, space opera game of E&B.
If you're looking for Privateer or Freelancer-type games, then I'd suggest you give Jumpgate a a try.

Yepp,Thats excactly what I am looking for and other people mentioned in this thread (PvP, real flight model etc.)Hope that stress test beta starts soon.
Ive tried to write this post 3 times now and its failed all 3 times! going on 4.. well see if it works, anyhow,
Veloxitymadog, lvl 150 Jenquai defender, galaxy orion, Super Uber
anyhow, some of these games look like play around games, but nothing looks as good as enb was, vendetta hasnt had their website updated in over 2 months, (it sais check back for new accounts in june.. its almost august)
anyhow, earth and beyond was a truly unique experience, combing great gameplay, an awesome variety of weapons and designs and devices, with an awesome variety of what to do, with a storyline you could dive in and become a part of, you could research it and actually figure out what is going to happen (head researcher here!) there is an enb "book" on the storyline if you wanna see the hidden peices, go to enbportal.com, then to forums, then to alien research, then to enb "book", then itll give you a link to a 15mb 550 page "book", allot of it is repeat though,
im trying to write the plot for my own mmorpg to get it used... so i can play it lol, becuase it would be awesome, but thats anohter story,
i would kill for another enb, thats pretty much what im waiting for, if you ever see me in eve, im getting really desperate, lol, but nothing coming out looks even halfway good... oh well life goes on
Veloxitymadog *EnB* Defender
I was also saddened to learn of the demise of E&B. Had previously tried EQ, and was thoroughly underwelmed. This was the first MMORPG I've tried and really liked. Ah, well....no stopping the mighty EA (may they rot!).
Haven"t tried others yet but am waiting for Vendetta Online to come out. From the website and various dev interviews, etc., looks to be somewhere between Eve and E&B, but will have to see. Looked at Eve, but didn't relish the idea of dying once and having to redo the previous hours, days or weeks of effort just to get my ship & equipment back where they were. Should there be a price for dying? Sure, but that's a bit much. As PvP is a feature I have absolutely no interest in, it looks as if Vendetta may be a better fit to my gaming preferences....just have to see.
I played E&B on Orion for over 2 years, had some great times, and met some amazing friends there. Most of us tried out EVE when we decided to leave, but for most of us, EVE was not what we were looking for. Many of us are in City of Heroes now, and having a great time there!
I am planning to at least check out Vendetta Online, it seems interesting.
