I was just wondering how the future of your previous games is going to pan out as many new people will be moving onto Vega conflict and games like BP, BYM and WC won't see the player base they used to and BYM seems to be removed from the games list on the Kixeye website altogether. Now i'm just wondering, being a coiner on previous games, will they cease to exist in the future or will you keep them running indefinitely? I will still be playing your older games for as long as I play Vega but i'm just curious :)

    they will continue but I expect a significant drop in player number from BP...other games a bit, but not as much.

    i expect Flo is right.. all the top players that have moved over to VC have not been coming back to BP....

    seen a Liam99 or Jay-z video in the last couple of days..? there is a reason for that!

    It is safe to assume current players of BP, BYM and WC are not the only people on this planet and more will sign up for those games. Some players may shut down those games to play Vega but it would be hard to guess how many. If kix loses players overall it won't be because of Vega.  :-?

    I think you missed my point, I was asking if kixeye will remove these games or if they will stay indefinitely due to the game player base dropping.

    I understood your point fine. I responded that those games should be fine since there will always be new members signing up. But then again I don't run kix so I'm only speculating.

    i don't think kix will pull the plug on BP. Why would they if they are covering the costs of the servers and a couple of staff? if they are doing that, then I see no reason why it should ever close its doors...

    I think we all know that Kixeye games make much more money then that..!

    VC is very slick from what i have seen on tinterwebs and that's what most of your 'gold' has been paying for.. well that and the other games that are in development at the moment. Oh! and perhaps a horse head mask or two :P

    I assume the games would stick around until the playerbase has dwindled down to less than about 10,000, and they'd just slowly collapse the universe in on itself as players wander off.

    I can certainly see why some many problems in WC have gone unfixed. VC is pretty awesome and so far relatively bug free. I still would like a CM to pm me where to send them the screen shot of a large rendering error, as they don't want pics or vids out for everyone to see.

    No KIXEYE will lose players by having games down for maintenance for an entire day and then some.

    To remain fairly competitive in any of these games takes a fair amount of time.  Therefore it is not always possible (and even appropriate) to play more than one when ones time is somewhat limited.  I have therefore decided to remain loyal to my 18 month "investment" in WC ....

    Not everyone that plays Battle Pirates is going to be interested in Vega Conflict even though is a similar game. I would not mind an adventure game set in space but just can't get into an RTS in this setting.

    We've yet to shut down a game, BP and WC are over 2 years old and have more people dedicated to them than ever.

    This is the first time i've seen you post for ages. While we're at it, is there any sneak peaks of what we could see from Kixeye in the near future?
