    you get 19+1+14+20+1 = 55 = 5x5 =25. Now mirror the number 25 and you get 52 = 5-2 = Illuminati pyramid has 3 sides. Santa = Illuminati confirmed!

I've been doing some little research but could not find examples of online games that were shutted down and later brought back by players. Sooooo, has it been done before? And if it has, did the reborn version matched the original? or was inferior? (BTW sorry if my english sucks, I speak spanish).

P.D.: Thanks to all the team for the tremendous effort they are making bringing the game back. Let's hope we can enjoy it again like the old days anytime soon.

People do it all the time and in many cases it turns out to be better than the original seeing as players are running it and are more communicative to the playerbase.

Didn't they once do something like this with the DreamCast version of Phantasy Star Online?

I meant after they shut down the PSO servers, and maybe even after SEGA abandoned the DreamCast, I seem to remember hearing that someone had reactivated or otherwise brought them back.

That's what I'm referring to. The private servers made were closed as far as I know.

Ah, I see what you're getting at.
Yeah, I think they are now. But I think they were up for quite a few years after the DreamCast died.

By now, they're dead I'm sure. That was over a decade ago. But it was pretty cool that they did it at all.

Kinda like a certain Dragon Ball related game. XD

WoW was never shut down. It's still alive and well.

But Fernel was talking about games that had been shut down then brought back by the players.

WoW has nothing to do with this. I'm just trying to tell you that the fan made servers for PSO that were made after the official PSO closed, are now gone or dead. Stop taking shit out of context and maybe things would make sense. It's right there in verbatim exactly what I said.

You mad?

The thread was started because he was questioning if this could actually be done. I was simply stating that it has been done before. Now how about you take your head out of your ass and simply discuss rather than thinking it's a personal attack. Thanks.

How about we all just agree to disagree, okay? Simmy was simply answering the original question asked, you don't have to start an argument about that, do you?

Yes, because you're naughtyword wrong and wrong people need to be put in their place. This is the question being asked.

"I've been doing some little research but could not find examples of online games that were shutted down and later brought back by players. Sooooo, has it been done before?"

WoW never died, WoW is irrelevant, even Nia pointed it out and no one said shit. The point is that besides PSO, I can't name any other examples of resurrecting an MMO.

Whoa! Everyone just calm down! He made a simple mistake is all. And trying to start a flaming war isn't gonna help any!

We've gotten past that little issue, and there's no reason to pursue it any further, okay?

And while I can't think of any other games besides PSO that have been resurrected, there's probably a few.

So maybe instead of everyone losing their cool, we can find some of them?

C'mon fellas, no need to argue. I as just wondering if that could actually be possible so I wouldn't get my hopes up in vain. It's just, like most of you here i assume, I really fell for this DB game, and was stunned when the servers closed.

P.D.: As a token of my appreciation for the game, here is a 14-or-so seconds video I made of my character Sansai!


(I had more videos, but never quite finished them)

Duuude... that is nice. I realize it's on a loop, but it's very smoothly animated. Nice shading too.
Plus, I love that SSJ aura sound. XD

But yeah, it can be done. I personally don't know a thing about it, but a little effort and whatnot can go a long way.

So I think they'll get it done. Just gotta give 'em time.

Ja, ok then, I guess a little blind faith wouldn't hurt. After all, the team developing this is the closest we've got in terms of having the game back I guess

I wouldn't call it blind faith exactly.
They are showing progress, so it's not as though we're sitting around thinking, this was announced 12 years ago, is it even still being made?

After all, Dumke posted some new screenshots as an Easter surprise, so we're getting there.

But the waiting is rough.
