Western gamers start petition to save Paragon while Chinese players await info

It shouldn’t really need to be said, but Paragon has fans. You may not love it yourself, but there are a lot of fans who are really upset about the shutdown announcement. So the fans have turned to that time-honored tradition in the wake of an unwanted shutdown, a petition for Epic Games to keep the lights on at the bare minimum.

The petition was aiming for 25,000 signatures and as of this writing has almost hit that number, so it’s clear that a lot of people are willing to write in to support the game at least remaining online even if the updates grind to a halt. Of course, petitions to avert shutdowns do not have the most positive track record; nevertheless, if you are sad about the game shuttering, we encourage you to throw your name onto the list.

Don’t think a petition is going to work? You could always join the folks playing on the Tencent-backed Chinese version of the game, which reportedly either isn’t sunsetting – or hasn’t been told yet.

I loved Paragon, then they just drove it into the ground over the past year. Is the game saveable? Absolutely, but why should they bother with the cash-cow Fortnite they have? They’ll let it die to save money, however throwing all your eggs in one basket is a good way to get screwed. They better hope Fortnite doesn’t flop, because that’s all Epic has at this point.

Well I mean, they’ve also got their Unreal Engine that many big name games (and several more smaller games) use.

That’s fair. I do think Epic takes a 5% royalty, but that really isn’t too much even if said game is making a lot of money. You have to think how much Epic expenses are, so I am sure they go through money quick.

This game wouldn’t shutter if it was making money. They already started issuing refunds. Why are people thinking that this would do anything? They should keep servers open on their dime? Pointless.

shutting down games in 2018 is stupid. Put it on maintenance mode and sometimes patch out cheats. Servers and electricity is dirt cheap while dev time is orbital.
You can never know when will you have a great idea for a DLC.
