This cannot bode well for the future of WAR.

It can, however, bode well for the future of trolls.

I dunno. It makes sense for them to close the store if it wasn't making any money, rather than waste money maintaining it. It's obvious they're running as lean as possible, and I'm sure there's about zero demand for UO/DAoC/WAR merchandise. This isn't really surprising.

Alas WAR you had promised us the world yet you now sit before death's door ,awaiting that last breath before EA pulls the plug so they can use the servers for SWTOR.

Mythic is not in control over their games anymore - Bioware is now leading the MMO department of EA. What did ppl think would happen ?

It will be intresting to see when things will be closed down at Mythic. What we can be 100% sure of is that there is now no future game development going on - and no talk of any expansions have been officially announched for any of their games. That ususally means that end is close. 1-2 years without nothing new and the games are pretty much dead. Considering there is now already 11 months since last big Content update in WAR... I think we can safely say ... that things are not looking to good.

I am registering with site specificaly to respond to you.

If you havent played the game in months or ever you can't make accurate assesments about the state of the game. They are constantly fixing bugs, making improvements and adding content to the game. You are correct there hasn't been a major content adition since LoTD but find me any MMO that gives away major content more than once a year.

You can't say there is no developement going on when you don't know that. Just follow the devs on Twitter and you will see they are working on lots of things and Bioware is involved.

There was one tweet from Jeff Skaliski (sp?) referring to Bioware: "The Dr.s just stepped in to look at what we are working on and they were blown away." Now that may not e verbatim but you get the idea.

They are working very hard on this game. Just go to their forums. Players are coming back in droves. WAR bloggers are popping up left and right. Patch 1.3.5 is going to be huge for End-game.

Why so many nay-sayers on this game?

I am not a Warhammer fanboy. I have never done anything more than read the novels. Right now WAR is the best PVP MMO hands down.

Give it a try.

The only reasons to close down a sales shop are: 1.) no sales, 2.) preparing to shut down everything else.

Neither one bodes well for Mythic or the players.

Even tho i stop playing the game because it impossible to find time cards and i don't want to be charged on my debt card. The game has improved a lot all i see is either people that get off on bashing the game because they one bad experience from it or people that haven't played it in vary long time. Pretty mythic trying to fix a lot of problem before they give expansion pack. It seems right to me that holding back on content because of bug's ect

This is ment for Gauge,

Most of your statement does not even make sense. First the guy you are responding to never said if he is still playing, never played or has stopped playing. So since you have no idea what time he has put into the game you can't come down on him for not having a accurate assesment of the game.

Second no one ever lies on Twitter right? Remember this is still a business and EA and trying to get the last dollar it can out of this game before it dies. So you dont think the people twittering info wont say anything bad. Not good business if you tweet, "Working on nothing and I am looking though the want ads for a new job" Would kind of make people cancel.

And lastly if you only read the novels how would you know what the state of the game is or that its the best PvP MMO out there. Nothing wrong with being a fanboy of a game. Sorry to see a game you love dieing. I work in the entertainment business and I always hate hearing when studios fail. I have been in one of those situations and it sucks. Good luck tot he people of Mythic.
