XGen Studios is a video game developing company. When you make a game, you want to bring together as many people and kinds of people to play on it. The point of having a game is for people to play it and keep playing it. The notion that XGen would take down the game because they want people “2 move on 2 better tings” is so ridiculous that I do not know how you are not being sarcastic. If they took down the game, it wouldn’t be because they want their customers to “move on”. It would be because of practical reasons related to their end: continuing to fund it is not practical, manpower and resources for it are limited, need to focus on other projects and endeavors.
Scott has already suggested on several occasions on these forums that he doesn’t really intend for Stick Arena to go away. The most recent example is the thread he made where he asked for Stick Arena screenshots. While frequent DDoS attacks may do something to change the mind of Scott and other developers, these attacks have happened many many times in the past and nothing was ever done to give up on the game. I don’t see them giving up on Stick Arena now.
This is not to say that discontinuing the game is not a recommended course of action. As it stands, XGen Studios should have plenty of reasons to discontinue Stick Arena. Perhaps the recent DDoS attacks push them towards stopping Stick Arena. There are also other functionality problems, largely to do with servers not functioning or resulting in glitchy gameplay. If they really cannot sustain the game on a satisfactory level, they should just give it up for the sake of themselves and their players.
Anyhow, the game will never be shut down for the reason that “xgen be like u guys need 2 move on 2 better tings”. I don’t know how you can tell me that’s not sarcastic…
