Yes, There's A Petition To Keep WildStar Alive

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.

Almost 2K signatures, yet an average of 101.6 players in the last 30 days with a peak of 223, according to Steam Charts.

Yup, signatures will definitely save the game, instead of actually playing it.

why not just do this ..
scatter it up on the several low end servers(clouds),
leave it,
never maintain it,
allow whoever in it,
never update
This seems easy but its not
but is a good idea. maybe we need to have games serving garbage cloud for games no longer wanted by business people.
