Nail in the coffin –
The studio was hit with a pretty significant layoff, the main staff was already bailing ship before the layoff…
They rotated most of the leads on the project.
Currently they are about 2 months behind on their content patch.
Their recent “Mega server” push was really just server consolidation wrapped in a “new tech” banner. (they did make it so that they CAN scale that mega server)
The game is fun but not post WoW expansion release fun, the main reason why I say this is. The game is hard and most players cannot play to the expectation that the devs have for end game.
Context – the strats guild, if it had maintained its numbers, wouldn’t have progressed too far in the raid scene unless we actually recruited some very skilled players.
Being that said, I don’t know how much time or energy I would invest into the game post Free-to-play. The game is fun but ATM I’ve done about everything there is to do BUT the very newest story.
