There's an old saying about anything involving money. "It's nothing personal. It's just business." Of course, whether or not something is personal generally depends on who you're asking. So, it's not entirely surprising when MMO players take having their favorite game shut down as a blow.
Of course, in the days of online petitions, it might feel like you can really do something about it. Perhaps if enough people sign their name, the execs will have a change of heart. The problem here is that in the end... for them... it's all business. And that's unfortunate.
So, with the recent announcement from NCSoft about WildStar's impending doom, it really doesn't surprise me -- or anyone else, I'm sure -- to see fans of the game rallying behind a petition on change.org in hopes of getting the company to reverse its decision. Right now, the petition is asking for 2,500 signatures -- and they're already very close to the 2k mark.
Unfortunately, based on previous experience with these things, it's probably not likely to do a lot of good. But, if you're a WildStar player and holding out hope, you might want to head over there and add your name anyway. Just in case? Maybe this will be the exception to the rule.
