I was hoping this wouldn't turn into a weeworld situation..but it seems as of rn it did.
Can't say personally on Weeworld, however this definitely has DownWorld closure vibes.
However at least with DownWorld they had the decency to publicly announce the game's last day before the game went defunct.
Weeworld's site closed randomly while people were playing. Some assumed there was a hacker who messed up the whole site. but according to google it ceased operations in 2017 and there still has been no answer, no one knew and still don't know what happened or if the hacker thing was true, and the website is gone.
I remember being so upset when DownWorld closed, I didn't understand why it closed.
It closed down due to, get this, loss of revenue. It costed them [Flowplay] too much money to keep DownWorld afloat. Sound familiar?
But yeah, we've all made a lot of memories on oW. Coming from a 2009 player, I've done all kinds of stuff on oW, like hang out with friends at Sideshow watching YouTube videos, make oWMV's, you name it. It's just a shame that it all comes to an end so abruptly.
