When IOE comes out,will SOE shut down again?
« on: June 08, 2016, 02:24:19 pm »
okay so i have been wondering if you will shut down the server again when IOE is released. i know its probably wrong to have both on but i have a lot of great memories from SOE and it feels so great to return here a long time after the shutdown,i am currently on like everyday and there are not a lot of people playing on it like before,but its still that place where i can go chill when im in a bad mood. the whole IT server just makes me happy  :-[

It most likely will since they need money so IOE can be multiplayer, but i cant be sure.

The staff have stated in a thread that yes, the server will shut down but the date is indefinite. Meaning, it could shut down tomorrow, today, in a year, whenever. Yes, while SoE is a home for us all, it will be shut down sooner or later. Mainly because it isn't even intended to be up/running. This means many glitches and hackers crawling about, due to the fact the server isn't very monitored or stable.

Ya, so even if it did stay open a hacker could come along and rip it all away from you anyway and the ppl working with IOE and SOE wouldn't do much about it. I didn't say wouldn't do anything about it, i said MUCH.

At this time we intend to leave the Sanctum server up. However as stated before we are not monitoring the game regularly as we are currently juggling work and Isles of Eventide progress. If the server fails we will not be reviving it but as long as it plugs along please enjoy as much as you want.

This is just sad...I can't believe the developers would just shut down a good ass game just to make another one that might not even be good. People are always replacing good shit with bad shit and it's just disappointing to say the least. It's this "we don't care about what the community wants we only care about what WE want and that's how it's supposed to be whether you like it or not!11!11!1!11!!!1!1!1!1!" all over again.

Sanctum of Eventide is an "Impressive Title" server. "Impressive Title" was a game made by someone else entirely outside of our team, a man who goes by the name "KovuLKD". Our Impressive Title server, Sanctum of Eventide, was heavily modified from the original Impressive Title source to make it our own. It's something everyone needs to keep in mind: that the Bloodstream Studios team did not create Sanctum of Eventide from scratch. We did pour a lot of our time, money, and effort into it as a server, but it is not a project that allowed us the full room we desired to make a game truly of our own.

Isles of Eventide however is going to be completely our game, not a server of another game made by someone else. If any of this is a concept hard to grab for anyone, I'm willing to take further time to explain it as best as I possibly can.

Something that everyone needs to remember is that hosting Sanctum of Eventide costs us money and at the moment we are not interested in having an active moderation team on Sanctum of Eventide. When Isles of Eventide is ready, all of our resources will be poured in Isles of Eventide - which, yes, means we'll likely close SOE back down.

We understand that many of you really love SOE, and we all appreciate your long standing admiration and support of our IT server, SOE. However it is the dream goal of the team to make something that is entirely ours and better than what an IT server can provide you as far as experience and technical compatibility go.

Your frustration and general sadness over SOE's inactivity and inevitable eventual shut down again is understood, but we hope that you all can also understand why and, in time, when ready, give IOE a chance.

<3

And as a general note of sorts, try not to judge a game before you've had a chance to try it. I understand you can't try IOE yet because we haven't had the time or resources to fully dedicate to IOE's development, however it'd be much appreciated if hostilities toward an unfinished project could be withheld till you're able to play. I think this can apply to any WIP project. :o
