RaiderZ loses the fight, is shutting down in August

raiderz 2

The North America version of RaiderZ is shutting down on August 7, 10am PDT, Perfect World has announced. The main reason for the closure is that the developer MAIET Entertainment isn’t operating anymore and the publisher isn’t ready to troubleshoot and solve issues with the game has it happened in the past. The European version of RaiderZ shut down in July 2013, it was operated by Gameforge.

RaiderZ was advertised as a stunning action combat MMO with massive boss fights akin to the Monster Hunter series, but it fell way short of the hype. With MAIET not operating anymore, things aren’t looking good for GunZ: The Duel and GunZ: The Second Duel, the shooters from the Korean studio.

    I knew this was going to happen as soon as Tera went F2P. Yes, Tera had a buy to play & subscription model only when it released. I played RaiderZ until Tera went F2P. Now that Tera is more popular than ever now with new content. It was just a matter of time for this cookie cutter Tera wannabe.

    These guys just want money, they don’t think about how fun the game is, just how much money they can make out of it, and then this happens, dumbasses.

    Isn’t it because the game was simply crap? I remember trying it, and sucked hard.
    The EU version just sucked because of gameforge most likely, that publisher is bad, and i would never in my right mind would play anything they have their hands on.

    I personally enjoyed the game for a while.,but the lack of updates killed it for me. Too bad it eventually killed the game itself.

    I liked the game when it first came out, but like most MMORPGs I lost interest quickly.
