LiveGamer is DEAD! Well, it will be in about a month. SOE and LiveGamer are parting ways. VG, EQII, and FR will be dropped from LiveGamer. I wonder what the driving force was behind that change. Feel free to speculate all you want.
There is no way SOE would be removing LG if it made money, especially considering they have three games there. The most disgusting thing...
Part of caring for our customers is listening to you and hearing what you have to say. Additionally, we need to be aware of changes in the industry, changes in player expectations, and larger economic trends in general.
We've listened to your concerns about the complexity of the subscription structure, how the separate forums between EQII and EQ2X divide the community unnecessarily, that the Live Gamer servers are under-populated, and that many people want more flexibility with payment options so they can better manage their personal budgets.
Bullcrap. First it was "we are adding LG because we listen to our customers..."; now they are removing it after years because they listen to their customers? Then why remove FR, a free game, from LiveGamer at the same time?
