IncGamers: The End of MMO Worlds

IncGamers Tim McDonald and Belinda Vaughn ask what would happen if your MMO world were to close.

"Nothing lasts forever, something we humans are finding harder to comprehend by the day.

Hm, some very good points there. When the water (players) recedes, the Mansion (WoW) will be abandoned ;)

Dang... Such a depressing thought... FFXI will be alive forever!!!

Hehe, yeah, that's likely =)

Not even atoms last forever, eventually there will not even be dust left.

Even though we replace all atoms in our bodies over a period of years, we still retain thoughts and personality (to some degree, anyway, we all change). Atoms are not the be all and end all ;)

Well, eventually there will be an end all, when all atoms have disintegrated, but that's a very long time away, isn't it?

I'd like to think that the community aspect will keep at least some players together when a game world dies.
