Hello WarpForcers,

It has been a while coming, and it hurts a lot to have to do this, but I have decided to wind down WarpForce's regular releases. It is highly unlikely that new missions will appear in the foreseeable future. We will occasionally release new items to fill gaps, or for holidays (like Frostval). We may make other changes or bugfixes from time to time. We may even remake the Novus questline finale.

Unfortunately, WarpForce has been on a steady decline for most of its life so far. WF was a labor of love on the part of the AQ Team. We put a lot into it over the past couple years, and we highly appreciate everyone's support of the game, especially the WarpGuardians. But WF never took on a life of its own, as most of our other games have, and was therefore not able to feed into its own growth from a financial perspective. All of our games here at AE grow based on the response they get from their players (you)-- from the number of players and the financial support they provide. If there is enough of one or the other of those, then a game gets bigger and stronger over time. If there is not enough, a game will stagnate. WarpForce never grew in either of those measurements, and therefore we were never able to grow the AQ/WF team to a point where we could sustain the efforts it would take to keep up with releases for two games.

I know that many of you truly love WarpForce for what it is, and it is to you that my deepest apologies must go, as well as my deepest thanks for your continued enthusiasm and support. We tried our best, and so did you, and that is the most that anyone can do.

*sigh*

We all knew it was coming. Oh well. Thanks for the ride, Gal, and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

I'm sad to hear that, Gal. We really need more players to support WF. :)

Creative!


Well, I'm going to keep playing. I have a fourth Warp-Guardian that I want to be level 100.
Remember don't judge the quality of Warpforce for how many players are online.

Aw, man... well, Warpforce, you had a good run... and look on the bright side: you're not getting scrapped.

This is very sad, I just started playing WF for a few weeks and enjoy it very much.

I hope WF will make a come back, some day that is...

May be, if staff keep filling lower level gaps and fixing bugs little by little, it will attract more new player.

Yes we saw it coming.
At least with the novus quest-line it reached a storyline good point to end.
A few leads are still open but I guess it is a good choice to stop now then in a completly new story.

So far great game a bit stony path especially with some very odd levels on weapons but all completly understandable.
It was fun and I'll still let my 3 chars reach level 100.

Disappointing, but not entirely unexpected, and there is some good news to this:

quote:

We will occasionally release new items to fill gaps, or for holidays (like Frostval). We may make other changes or bugfixes from time to time. We may even remake the Novus questline finale.


This means that the Drakel tail bugs might finally be fixed (a personal quirk of mine) in addition to skills not working properly (Stun gun and the L.S.S Alteon's Ram ability comes to mind), and we might see new gap fillers that make it easier for new players to actually play through the story content to begin with. I haven't played through the Novus Finale (because of level requirement), but if Loremaster Orodalf says it is wrong storyline wise, it must be (it comes from writing every single quest entry in the Encyclopedia. Honesty, I'll never know how he can have the patience to do that...)

So, all in all, it's not as bad as it could be, and I am actually somewhat happy to see this news (as opposed to pretending that everything is fine and wearing your resources to a thread). Admitting you have a problem is the first step to a solution, and hopefully we'll see more small, quality game changing updates in the future.

I decided to become a WarpGuardian because I really thought that this game had a lot a potential. It still does, and who knows, it might even rebound a while from now. I can definitely say that WF has boosted my love for AE games, it was my first time ever spending some cash in AE ever. The regular releases will be missed. :(

This is sad to hear. I'm not surprised, but saddened, and now wish I had played more. I probably would have, too, if not for the lvl restrictions.

I can't say I'm not disappointed by this news, but neither can I really say I'm surprised. WF had a good start, but I guess many people just weren't into playing what amounted to AQ-in-Space. Also, where AQ's team is strained to release AND fix one game, it was sadly only a matter of time before it fell through.

I'll still be playing occasionally, and I look forward to whatever items do come out & whatever fixes get carried out.

This is a pity. I've been around for all of AE's releases of new games... but I've never seen a game go under. Can't say I didn't see it coming--I myself stopped playing WF quite a while ago--but that doesn't mean it's not sad. Ah well. If it's best for the company, then it's alright with me.

Wow, that's actually quite sad. I remember I used to play Warpforce, but I left a long time ago...
So from what I gather from this, WarpForce updates are over. Meaning, this game has ended, but pre-maturely.

I am not saddened to see an end to Warpforce releases.

As an expansion of AQ it never really worked.
There were too few crossover Events and there were too many bugs with each release.
The reward levels for playing were always too low.

However there were some great new game mechanic ideas in Warp Force. Some of them may even have made it back to AQ?

Please do not abandon the story of Novus.
Please, Please, Please, try to integrate the story into the AQ story and use it to expand the idea of Kingdoms and Mega World Portals within AQ.
The Network should also continue to crossover into AQ now that they know Lore is there in the Universe.

Aw, I remember when it first came out and you needed AQ guardian ship to use it. Really fun game. The art is pretty great for the most part, and the game play is addictive and just all around fun.

But I think its great that you guys have to focus on more things, making your other games even better. In this situation, I would have to say, quality over quantity. Great work.

Seriously this is a good thing. Warpforce wasn't very good, in any way. Hopefully now the extra staff can help improve the rest of the games, namely AQ. I expect HeroSmash to die next.

Oh no. I really need to get active and start playing WF again then. I don't want it to die. @EvilOverLord Why would HeroSmash die? It had over 300,000 players play within the last 24 hours. And it has over 41,000 people following in on Facebook. That seems pretty good to me.

HeroSmash has less than 500 people online right now. AQ has at least 1000 players at any given moment.

Isaiah: The "300000 players" thing is for all AE games combined.

EOL, please don't bash the game. I feel that the story had the most potential out of all of the games-- WarpForce just wasn't given enough staff attention.
