Additionally, an advantage of a sub-based business model is that you can pretty accurately chart your future income once you have some historical data to work with.

A new European CM has joined and I suspect that I know who it is. If I'm right then it's one of my former GOA colleagues. The introduction is supposed to happen next week.

More server closures (source)

NA:
Iron Rock
Volkmar

EU:
Carroburg

edit:
This brings the live server counts to 2 NA, 4EU.

That leaves just two servers for the US now, doesn't it?

Edit:  Looks like Gorfang, and Badlands.  Isn't it about time someone took this game out back, and put it out of it's misery?

Edit:  Yup, Gorfang for the free server, and Badlands for the paid folk.  Isn't it about time someone took this game out back, and put it out of it's misery?

The EU ones are needed for the languages only (English free/paid, French, German). It's an amazing bleed-off of the population from a game that started at ~80 servers down to half a dozen in a little over two years.

Oddly enough, Gorefang had my warrior priest and dorf and the Badlands had my Chaos and Greenskin.

Has anyone ever had that much server attrition? I know EQ2 had a bunch of servers but I don't think it was anything close to 80 and they're certainly not down to two NA servers.

SWG had some pretty drastic server closures, but I don't know the numbers or timeframes.

SWG initially cut about half their servers.  I'm not sure of the current state of things.  I don't think anyone has come close to matching WAR.

The new EU CM is who I thought it was. Former German CM for DAoC and WAR and later the head of the WAR CM team in Europe after David Petit quit.

and by "another server" we mean "Badlands".

Nice.

Last time I played, I wound up quitting due to a problem with armor I had acquired, the shield was backwards.  I lost all will to play when I spent like weeks to get an item and it was backwards and no fix was in sight.

I mean I submitted reports for months.  How hard it is to flip a 3d model 180 degrees?  I imagine it can't be that difficult.  I just checked the forums and there was a post recently that its still backwards.

I think its been like that since the item was added which was like a year ago.  I swear they can't fix anything.

All of my DAOC friends that are still playing WAR have no interest in Rifts.  Right or wrong, they see it as another PvE WoW clone.  I think Aion was the game that was the biggest WAR killer.  GW2 may steal the rest of them.

The maintenance today was just a simple hardware issue - a memory module needed to be replaced - so this can't be the reason.
Also, the reports started after the general maintenance yesterday.

We shall see. My WAR guild just started playing RIFT for the head start today. We're hardcore PvP. Did nothing but RvR in WAR. Have multiple RR90+ in the guild. In any case, if it proves to be popular enough with everyone and the PvP stays exciting as it has been, then WAR will lose our guild. If not, we will be back to playing WAR until GW2 comes out and then we'll probably see how that goes.

February Producer's Letter

Just so you know, we have a full year of Warhammer Online planned out, from events to patches, including features and fun stuff.  Along with that plan, we are looking at a number of other hypothetical things that wed love to work on; well be getting feedback on these as we move forward through the year as well.  Plus, finally, well continue to look at the topics and trends that concern you, adding tweaks, changes, of fixes as we go.

Remove stealth.  Remove CC.  Remove having to level to 40 before you can play the game. Balance classes. Flatten the RR vs power curve. 

I'd go back if those things happened.  I enjoyed my shaman and squig herder.

The CC is about right now.  Most classes felt more balanced.

The level 40 thing is more of a problem, because now you have to be level 40 and renown rank 100.

RR100 gear is crazy powerful. If you aren't RR90+, you're in for a long ride.

Apparently they are down to 1 server in the US and 1, maybe 2 in the EU.

Upcoming Free Server Transfers
Quote
As part of our ongoing efforts to maintain an active, competitive, and engaging experience in WAR we have decided to open free transfers for players to specific servers. WAR, more than many games, only gets better with more people. These transfers will enable players to experience more action during all hours whether fighting in scenarios or Open RvR.

To make this process easier we have provided specific details concerning these new transfer options below, please read and follow any instructions carefully. We are currently targeting next week to enable the transfers, for now please use this time to organize yourself and your friends to ensure a smooth transition to your new home.

US from the original thread post I dug out the dates when they tombstoned the last ones, Dark Crag - 11/24/2009, Phoenix Throne  - 11/24/2009, Darklands - 19/08/2009, Ironclaw - 19/08/2009, Gorfang - 12/09/2011, Iron Rock - 02/03/2011, Volkmar - 02/03/2011, Ironfist - 07/13/2009, Vortex - 07/13/2009, Monolith - 07/13/2009, Magnus - 07/13/2009, Skull Throne - 07/13/2009, Ostermark - 03/31/2009, Praag - 08/07/2009.

Which leaves Badlands as the sole US server, I can't be arsed checking the EU.

How can they stay open with one server?  What is that, 2,500 average pop?  So sad, I really wanted this game to be good.
