    To the Landmark community,

    With heavy hearts, we are writing today to inform you that after much review, we have decided to close Landmark game servers on February 21, 2017.

    Since Landmark first entered Alpha, we have been impressed by the creative talents in this community. You pushed the boundaries of what Landmark could do, and we are grateful for the time and energy you shared through your creations in this game.

    While there is still time to enjoy Lumeria and the many worlds you’ve built within Landmark, we wanted to let you know what you will be seeing happen between now and February. Beginning today, Player Studio items will no longer be available for listing or for purchase in the Landmark Marketplace. Landmark will also no longer be available for purchase. All items in the Marketplace with a Daybreak Cash price will have their price reduced to 1 DBC.

    The game servers, as well as the accompanying forums and social media channels, will be closed at 4:00PM Pacific Time on Tuesday, February 21, 2017.

    We want to thank each and every one of you for your creative contributions to Landmark.

    I saw my $100 as a loss a long time ago, didn't even make it out of alpha before I gave up on this game, had tons of excitement back then, and it slowly was just drained away. Essentially at the time unless I could replicate bugs couldn't build crap.

    At least Smed was decent enough to give us our money back when his game failed to garner enough sales to continue give what it promised, these guy promised me I would help build eq next....we see how that went....and nothing back.

    Well, we all knew it was coming. Still, makes me sad. What a waste of potential. The game that never was.

    seriously i love this game i do not want to see it shut down. but if you guys do shut it down. i want a refund. and NOT in daybreak cash.. i do NOT plan on playing any of your games after this fiasco.. if daybreak put their heart into the game .. worked with u s.. KEPT your promises.. then the game would have taken off.. when i signed up for the game.. and payed and clicked on the i accept button.. there were promises made about what was going to happen.. what you guys planed on doing. what we as public and landmarkians would get out of it.. and yet.. big breach of contract.. you changed it all.. and from then it went down can i trust a company that makes promises but never keeps it? i cant..

    But... understandable. I log in every day and it's a wasteland.
    Such a shame from the potential we saw all those years ago, of it being the Everquest successor we all hungered for.

    Good luck to everyone. Which beach we partying on until the servers shut?

    I was hoping DGC was going to sell it to a another real gaming company that has more resources to develop it like PWI, etc.

    I knew my money was gone as soon as I bought the Trailblazer pack, they made it very clear that we were paying for early access and the bonus items. Still, only 8 months post release and I was waiting for it to feel more done before jumping back in.

    Looks at H1Z1 Just Survive and starts planning a future funeral...
  14. Ayrid Trailblazer

    Try Second Life - a lot of great building there - from simple to very complex and there are actually many players there after over 10 years.
  15. Mojoslinger Trailblazer

    Daybreak is the WORST GAME COMPANY EVER! I hope to hell you guys plan on giving us something in the other games to compensate for how badly you have SCREWED US OVER =P
  16. Silinius328 Trailblazer

    Wonder if there is any chance they would convert that $100 into DBC so that I can spend it on other games. This is also why I'll never purchase Vaporware from any company again.
  17. Fredelas Well-Known Member

    I'm actually a little relieved by this announcement. I think realistically, we've all known for a while that it was coming. At least now we know how long we have left.

    I bought 2 trailblazer packs, one for me, one for my wife. It was before Next was cancelled I realized it was a waste of $200. We had recently started trying to play again, now this happens. If something isn't given to us in the way of DBC (which I doubt, nor honestly expect to happen) we'll just never play another DB game again, which is sad because we met in EQ1.

    This game has taught me to never be hyped about a game before it's released and to never purchase early access games again, so I thank you for that. So promised and so little delivered.

    Pretty much exactly this, I am convinced they just launched the game officially and for as long as they did so they didn't have to give refunds for failing to launch the title. Pretty much everything promised in the beginning was never held up.
