Firan Shut Down?
« on: August 04, 2014, 6:34 PM »
I just heard a long-standing RP game, Firan, shut down. :( Anyone know what happened? A few of our players also played there and seem quite sad about it.

The realm of text-base online RP will be a little less wonderful without them, I think.

I have to admit that I'm surprised Firan has gone down.

On the other hand, I'm not.

Though it had a large player base, and 130 people or so logging in on a given day... there was a LOT of contention. Hundreds of players with beefs against the game, slews of bad reviews, and a game owner that just wasn't that into it anymore.

Understandable after 18 years.

They did an amazing thing. That thing is over. Frankly, I give them props for just shutting it down where they did, instead of letting it fail more than it has been. A lot of people have been saying it was on its way out, due to really really REALLY poor admin issues, and this just sort of proves the point.

Was there not an option to hand it over to somebody else to host and manage? I helped take over an old MU* and have been able to successfully revive it to a degree. It's not at all at the level it used to be but it's still thriving and producing great RP.

I hope you realize this post is over 4 years old and I doubt the OP even uses these forums anymore.
