Dungeon Runners shutting down


This may be old news for some, but I just read this and it made me a bit sad. Dungeon Runners, a game I talked about pretty postitively about a couple of times on this blog is shutting down in the new year. Full details here.

Why am I sad? Well, for starters Dungeon Runners was a good MMO. Not only was it 5 bucks a month (an even better deal if you got the 20 dollar retail box which got you 6 months of premium membership) but the game itself was actually pretty good. If you want to hear me talk more about why, have a look around because I posted about it here and there. The game had a great sense of humor and just felt really really classic and good. Even the goddamn news post is full of the same (crap sandwich... heh).

Anyway, there is some good news coming out of this.

NCsoft has worked with us on a plan to compensate Dungeon Runners players. I think we've come up with a nice package for all players with paid memberships as of today (9/16/2009). You'll be getting a 30 day game time serial code and digital copies of City of Heroes Architect Edition and Guild Wars Prophecies. FREE games FTW! I know, it's not Dungeon Runners... but it's still frigging nice! Of course, any of you guys that need refunds for multiple-month membership purchases will be taken care of. And, as always, our helpful support staff will be available to help you with any issues you have.
That is awesome! Wow.

Wait, there's even more good news! While we may be going out, we're going out in style, with a few changes to the game for the coming "End Time". Mythic loot will drop much more frequently. We're significantly reducing the cost of expensive King's Coin vendors. We're also quintupling the rate of XP gain to help you finish the game before year's end! Finally, we're adding a huge nuke to Townston that will blow up on New Year's and take the game down with it. There's more, but what fun is there in spilling all the beans? Oh, its gonna be a fun time till the end of the year! Loot finding, leveling madness. I may finally make it to level 100 myself now...
Huge nuke? Quadruple XP? Better drops?

I love you guys, and I am sorry to see your big project bite the dust. Really hope that all of you will find another place to apply your awesome talent, cause you guys rock.

- Rav4ge out.
