This is how to shut down a game

Nintendo could learn a few lessons from Asheron’s Call, an MMO about to sail off into the sunset. (Asheron's Call, PC)

Player run servers are the future.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, no. In all seriousness this is why I prefer to play online games on my console rather than my computer. I find the owner's of servers to be rather abusive of their power, and generally become a pain to those who are trying to play the game. I have never had an issue with a company run server yet, but obviously there have been issues in the past. Overall, I do prefercompany run servers becaue they usually have stronger security and also ensures I don't get banned for 300 years because," I had a better K/D ratio than an admin," true story.

Context... c'mon man...

I would agree official servers are ideal but I would rather them allow player run servers than to completely shut down a game and have it lost to history.
