This note is in case anyone at Gaia HQ will actually peruse this petition.
How very sad. It seems that Gaia has managed to essentially kill zOMG. Other than very new players who don't yet know they won't get to play really except for farming, (and good luck them ever getting crewed in SS), there is almost never anyone on-line in zOMG. The beach is virtually deserted except at reset and even then just hardcore fans who are struggling to hang on. Usually only one server has maybe as many as a hundred, a thousand absolutely tops on a good day now and the others are virtually deserted. Even with so few playing the lag is still hard to take at times. When the entire crew lags at the same time, it is server lag, not a person's computer or connection. The nerf pretty much killed zOMG and the market was totally thrown off with the ridiculous Flynn debacle; Between the two inflation is so high most cannot afford what they were questing and have given up.
Way to go fearless Gaia leaders, kill a great game where tens of thousands used to come together to have a good time, spend some cash and make new friends. I remember years ago there was a tally count of people logged into Gaia and how many were in zOMG. Those numbers for zOMG used to be in the tens of thousands, I remember many times five or six servers strained to accommodate all the zOMGers, now I doubt there would be as many as a few hundred players. Congratulations on ignoring your customers and loyal fans in favor of the almighty dollar. To bad it will backfire on you. People are already so very tired of being bombarded with advertisements and money grabs that they are quitting Gaia in droves. The artists, devs and others on the zOMG team were passionate about it and you gradually sent them away to work on other projects which nearly all ultimately failed, yet you never brought them back to zOMG, which had the greatest chance of success.
Scobes, thank you for organizing this petition and to all those who have signed, thank you so much for trying so hard. Myself and at least a handful of others I know will keep trying to play zOMG until they eventually shut it down or render it completely unplayable. Please forgive me for the length of this post.
Hmm, I wonder if I'll get mysteriously banned after I post this? Scobes, just pm me if you want me to remove this post ok hun?
