Default MXM is closing on January 31, 2018

So another game thats not generating enough money for NC-Soft is forcibly shut down.

That reminds me of my beloved City of Heroes again.

This is just another example that NC-Soft just looks at one thing.
The Bottom Line.

We players are only of interest to them as long we pay.

So if you want L2 to continue, open your wallets and shop as much as you can and more.

This is how businesses work, any product or service that is not selling will sooner ir later be discontinued. My problem with nc currently is the emphasis on p2w, there may be different ways to monetize a game without making whales gods among men. Several games make million selling skins for example.

True that, but unfortunately the p2w cannot be reversed anymore, even if they wanted (they don't).
Thus making the randoms god-like.Thats why the pvp is dead too.... Sadly we'll get the same farewell message sometime next year or so.

Master X Master didn't even last half a year? Turns out they ****** off their playerbase by increasing XCoin costs and reducing the amount of rewards you got playing in game. Sounds familiar? The difference with L2 is that we have a loyal and highly addicted playerbase that helps limps along this game's longevity. Just remember, for every $100 you spend on NCoin you keep the servers running for an hour!

prolly not but doubt there will be much pvp left by then outside maybe the bi-weekly dim siege

the price tag for pvp these days is just not affordable for 99% of the players that would still wanna play this 14+ years old game except ofc for that 1% who prefer to be living the dream being king of their hill all by themselves lolz

Says everyone who spent thousands? Not that I disagree though, I think it might take 2 more years as long as some whales still float around.

Don't ever say this. Neutron has suggested as best he can, that NC is literally ripping you off so badly that you are encouraged to go to your local representative and lobby for legislation to regulate this criminal like activity.

NO ONE SHOULD BE SPENDING MONEY AT NC SOFT UNTIL CHANGE IS MADE! THE EMPLOYEES ARE TELLING YOU THIS AS BEST THEY CAN PEOPLE!

AAA MMOs need to go back to the old P2P model with, at most, cosmetic stuff as a secondary source of revenue. This F2P/P2W cancer is what is killing the AAA MMO scene.

It may be too late for L2 to go back to this model but it's not too late for the upcoming AAA games of this genre.
