Did I mention that Everquest still gets new content?

Fool me Once...

...shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. But six times???

Seriously, why is anyone still giving money to NC-Soft?

Sure, they have the potential to create great games that break the mold of the fastidiously formulaic cookie-cutter fantasy MMOs, but what's the point if they have no intention of supporting said mold-breaking creations?

A MMO is nothing if it the publishers can't guarantee the game will still be here tomorrow, and NC has closed games barely a year after launch while SOE keeps producing new content for old Everquest.

Really, only an idiot would be considering wasting his money on a company that's infamous for the long line of MMO corpses it leaves in its wake.

People, do not subscribe to Wild Star... or at least don't buy it only to complain about how NC axed it two years after launch.

@chicken salad: Oh, you mean something that is popular in Asia? Yeah... if you're in China or Korea, NCSoft may be a safer company to support. But if you are an Asian customer, you won't be buying WildStar, will you? It's not sufficiently aimed at you.

Fact Check Needed

@Pete: ArenaNet is an American company, genius. Guild Wars 2 is an American game. Before you open up that vast chasm of wisdom you've got there, you might want to use something called "Google."

Check your OWN facts....

@Vince: ArenaNet is owned entirely by NCSoft. They have the exact same status that Paragon Studios had. ArenaNet could be shut down without notice the same way Paragon was if NCSoft decided to do so.

The ONLY REAL solution

The bottom line - $DOLLARS$... that is the only language that NC Soft understands. If you want their attention then you have to speak their language and that language is dollars, yen, etc. If you really want them to stop killing off games then you absolutely have to BOYCOTT ANY GAME with the NC Soft name on it. Hit them where it really hurts, a bunch of emails, letters and pleas to the CEO is NOT going to work!!! Say it with me; "If NC Soft shuts down the City of Heroes - City of Villains game, I will never purchase OR play ANY game that is currently or in the future produced by or affiliated with NC Soft. I will further halt ALL subscriptions that I am paying currently and not subscribe to any further games by NC Soft in the future". Read it, learn it, say it, live it.

Who owns ArenaNet?

Unless/until I see the contract that says that ArenaNet can continue Guild Wars 2 if NCSoft decides to cut it loose, I'm not buying it.

Cash flow

Even with the game population on decline, City of Heroes was still making a fair amount of revenue. Subscribers to Aion should watch their back for an axe sooner or later in the same fashion.
