Is it like "raiders" or like "raider z"? I've heard both, and I was never quite sure. After August 7, I won't really need to care any more.
That's the date that Perfect World Entertainment will shut down RaiderZ in North America -- it was shut down in Europe two years ago -- and it's for a rather odd reason. According to the shutdown notice letter:
"In the past, we have been working with MAIET, the developer of RaiderZ, in order to troubleshoot and solve issues to keep the game available for the players. Unfortunately, MAIET is no longer operating anymore.
Since there’s no more active developer, it’s very difficult to troubleshoot any issues that happen to RaiderZ. We’re unable to deliver a quality experience to you, our players, so we’ve made the difficult decision to shut down RaiderZ."
To be honest, I'm impressed that they can keep the game going for any length of time now that there's no actual developer.
Any RaiderZ purchases made from May 7 on will be refunded to players' Arc accounts, letting them use those funds to spend in any PWE games, and all players have been granted 1,000 in-game currency and all items have been discounted to one Zen. What a deal! Everything must go!
RaiderZ is one of those games that I've always been aware of but never knew anyone who played it. Did you play it? What did you think?
