No Mourning for Mourning

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Way back when I blasted Mourning for threatening to sue my favorite website.

So, it's nice to see that after a development phase filled with
unending drama Mourning has gone "live" in disastrous fashion.

They are known for utilizing the concept of perma-death in their game but what we're seeing here is the perma-death of the game itself.

It's apparently so much fun that they already wiped the forums. Luckily, Flashman over at
Game Memes has a nice screen capture in which one of the moderators tells people to "run from the game." That's always a good sign.

There are also some deleted posts from the Mourning forums at
this link. My favorite quote from Egomancer is "And yes, you will pay to play a game that still should be in an alpha/beta stage. It should never get to this but this was our limit of competence..." Oh wow, that's great. Wouldn't want you to overreach your limit of competence. To be fair I don't know for sure if that's a valid quote as it is not in the official forums (which they wiped).

In the
comments section over at Kill Ten Rats, Krones notes that the price has gone from $30 preorder to $20 now. Another encouraging item. In the same comments section Azeroth notes that they have actually censored the word "fraud" on the Mourning forums. Wonderful.

Here's a
thread at MMORPG.COM taking bets on how long it takes to Mourning shuts down. Here's another thread with a 1/10 review. Yes, 1 is the lowest.

But read the
Mourning forums (what's left of them) and make your own decision. Thrill to the tales of people who never got access to the game they paid for. Wonder in awe at the tales of the quest, crafting and fame system not being implemented. And how massive is it? How does 30 people sound?

Here's a fun quote from Egomancer I found in the official forums "1. we decided to offer this 19.95$ price for the serial because the users that preodered complained that the game does not worth a full 40$-50$ price. So we made it. Now the same people are complaining that we dropped the prices. Note that the people that preordered are the only ones that have the game CD. Consder it a collecion object. And please decide what do you want? Full price or not" (spelling and grammar mistakes his not mine)

Wow, these guys really seem to have their act together! Sign me up! And if anyone wants to sell me one of those collector's item game CD's the sky is the limit!

Oh that quote is all too true. I saw that one but didn't bother to take a screenshot of it. hehe.

I think these Romanian guys are just way way way over their heads. I feel a little sorry for them because they seem like decent guys (unlike the publisher).

I don't think its fraud like Rune Conquest (remember that one?), just stunning incompetence matched with a total lack of experience. Oh and again, that publisher ain't helping.

I agree with you, flashman. I think it is more the "limit of competence" than actual fraud. It is hard to put out a viable MMORPG.

I do actually feel a little sorry for them, but I still blast them because of the cheesy lawsuit threats to Something Awful.

My favourite episode was 'Mourning and The MMORPG.com Blacklist' - definitely a keeper:

Possibly they might have spent more time making a decent game, and less trying to ruthlessly censor teh interwebs. Still, car wrecks are fascinating in any language...

Even egomancer posted on it because it was so damaging. He wouldn't answer questions.

What prince-o3-tour would be bettre in my opinion would be to remove the wrist straps and the skin, and instead make it a 2 babolat pure drive, 2 stereing wheels, 1 baseball bat and 1 golf club. Still, this package is great value for your money. When my wife informed me that Emporio Armani was now pushing its own signature wilson k six, the EA7, I’ve got to admit, I was intrigued. Italian designres producing tennis rackets? How fashion forward of thstrong. I love it. Head microgel is style and preformance at cheap tennis racquets best. Haute couture meets the hard courts.
