Not. Possibly a reality check for some, possibly not. Welcome to the lifecycle of a long running game. Couple things: 1. Planetside didn't fail even if it shut off today. It's approaching a 7th anniversary and is still running. 2. The servers ain't shutting off anytime soon. These guys are still running DC Online and Everquest 1 servers. They still have server merges if needed to address population. It's not losing money. Well... it was and that's why they laid off some folks. Now it ain't. 3. There still ain't anything like this out there. Go on, look. Nothin'. We are all here for a reason. This stuff is badass and fun. And it still is. We'll eventually hit the point where the content ain't right. Big battles not happening and all that. I'll probably drop off then and wait for Planetside 3 (yes, the IP has value, yes it will happen someday even if not DBG). Until then... I'll see you guys on the server.
