PopCap Part II

I wrote a few days ago about PopCap shutting down their online multiplayer games, including Psychobabble. Anyway, they e-mailed me with more info, so I figured I should post it:

· We are limited on the available resources to properly monitor and moderate the Multiplayer games and communities for the safety and enjoyment of all members.

· While many of you have said you’d happily pay for the games, we have no mechanism for that in the existing systems.

· As we’ve upgraded our web servers to accommodate millions of users each month, we’re now faced with a difficult choice of either investing heavily in engineering to upgrade the Multiplayer games or taking them down. Unfortunately, the economics for the small (but devoted!) user base simply don’t support significant upgrades to these games.

· PopCap Games is investing in other multi-player and community products, but we don’t have a timeline for the public release of these features.

Thanks so much for your support and encouragement for these and all our games. We hope you’ll continue to enjoy all our other fun, free games. And we’re creating new titles all the time, so please keep checking in at PopCap.com.

Thanks, PopCap Games Staff

Pretty much what I guessed, but there you have it. And now I have closure.

Have you given up EQ2, Aggro? Seems like you've lost a lot of interest in the game.

After spending the day in ICU with my mother I went to the site, but I was too late. No one impartial to talk to about it, no one to listen. I miss my Psychobabble friends. How will we ever find one another to keep in touch?

I read the first thing where you said that it was ending and it made me angry that Popcap would do that! But I think you should try to restart it, I could help with any HTML questions, I liked the idea of AggroBabble!!
