Shadowbane to Be Completely Reset
While I admittedly have a fairly limited scope of experience with MMOs, I do know that the Shadowbane team’s decision to completely reboot the game is a rather anomalous event. A post on the game’s official website describes in fairly lengthy fashion just why this is happening.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Shadowbane Team decided that it would be best for the longevity of the game to reset all server and character data and start from scratch. By doing so, the game benefits in a variety of ways. First, we feel the community will be better served by being more consolidated and less fragmented. Second, resetting the game removes items that have accumulated over the years that have caused imbalances to the game. In addition, numerous updates and enhancements have been made to the Shadowbane service to improve the performance. Some of the changes were not as effective due to preexisting data and resetting the service will allow the servers to work under optimal conditions. Finally, this update also gives us a chance to address certain game issues.
Do we have any Shadowbane-playing readers? What do you think of the decision?
