Earth Eternal Hi everyone. As you know, Earth Eternal is down. Our ISP pulled the plug for non-payment, which was expected. I wasn't able to give you any warning, unfortunately, because I was at Burning Man and completely out of reach for the week that it went down. Full backups of all the data exist and the company that is in the process of buying Earth Eternal will be starting it back up again in the nearish future.

Earth Eternal No, you won't have to pay to play. It'll still be free-to-play as far as I know, but that will not be under my control once the new acquirer takes control.

So there we go.

Mmm, more sweet non-informative comforts. We at least guessed right. More waiting ensues. :)
Thanks for pointing that out, Cliff.

Thanks Cliff! Much appreciated. Agreed, I think everyone already suspected why the servers went down.

EDIT: Looks like the Lead Designer for Sparkplay Media, John Yoo, wont be coming back to Earth Eternal. He joined the company that makes Farmville and Mafia Wars for Facebook.

I liked some of his suggestions for the 'overlay' method of armor refashioning, but otherwise I'm not sure many of us appreciated his contributions, often using him as the whipping boy for the unpopular - possibly company bankrupting - patch 0.8.6.

John Yoo is to patch 0.8.6 as Bush (and now more Obama) is to the recession.

See what I did there? It's an analogy. Or a metaphor. Or a simile... or something.

But honestly, bad things did start happening when Yoo came on board ... I'm glad he was able to find a job in this rough economy, I'm happy for him. Admittedly, I'm also glad that job wasn't at the company that bought EE.

Or...is it?
