Even with closed servers, they have stayed alive long enough now to most likely stay a good while. A permanent MMO feature, as it were, and some healthy competition for WoW!

These guys are catching up where WoW have already been established. Slow guys eh?

Perhaps they were shrewd letting Blizzard test the market for Taiwan before they lept in.

The standard practice seems to be to release all MMOs in the Far East now, they thrive on games like this - as do the rest of the world who are catching on slowly.
