Uh no.
They stopped caring about this game because they weren't getting profit from zOMG.

Trust me newbie I have been around the block



Have you actually talked with any of the mods? The sales from the power ups keeps the servers running. Costs money to run servers. Plus if they didn't care wouldn't the game be taken off the site and all the zomgers would eventually or least some transfer over to hoc since it has all the devs.

And please zo you don't even play anymore.
zOMG was going to close before DMS came out but we fought hard to keep it around.
I was at the dev meat with JK when he informed us of him leaving.
I was here when DMS came out and they still weren't getting profits from it.

Ya servers do cost money but they are losing money for keeping zOMG.


Actually, zOMG was making profit in the beginning... Gaia just wasn't getting the uber mass profit it expected after the major launches. Gaia failed to understand the dynamics behind the market in this kind of game and sorely underestimated the time and nurturing that it would need before they would be able to reap the profits it wanted. As a result, Gaia started to back peddle, and, instead of putting forth more resources, it started to take them away, which further enhanced the game's inevitable decline in profit. Had they continued to advertise and develop the game the way it should have been, the profit they were looking for would have come in time. Gaia's back peddling and failure to listen to the advise of those who knew better is actually the main reason why certain employed peoples chose to leave Gaia (before Gaia started redirecting and straight-up laying off members of the zOMG team).

As for its status today, I don't really know. It's been a long time since I've updated myself on it and I'm not really too inclined to do it now. Last time I did, though, I learned that Gaia was still earning a profit from zOMG. Not a lot, just enough to make it worth keeping. The Boardwalk was actually an effort made by the remaining devs to try and convince Gaia that zOMG deserved more resources, but it was too little too late; too many users have stopped playing by then and nothing was being done in terms of marketing to bring new players back in.

So yeah, Gaia has abandoned zOMG, but it won't completely pull the plug on it (yet) because it's earning just enough for Gaia to want to keep zOMG's now very small player base happy. And yeah, it wouldn't surprise me if Gaia's dwindling profits from zOMG has now progressed into a loss. I guess I just don't care anymore, lol. I've stopped playing a while back, after everyone I enjoyed playing with stopped playing.

I think some folks simply tire of of the drama on gaia, others get tired of waiting hours for a dms crew to form only to have someone bail two rooms in, and perhaps some have oodles of lust kills and are simply bored. Each person likely has their own reasons.

I fall into the waiting and waiting for crews.. Which is why I usually end up making my own, and try and crew as many friends as I can.. that way, if someone does bail, I can rage at them at it well after the fact.
