There are some games you realize had a long run only after you say goodbye to them. Grand Chase might not have been one of the most important games on your radar, but after seven years of operation, it finally closed its doors yesterday, waving farewell to a longstanding and dedicated player community in the process.
While nothing can make up for the loss to players directly, the staff behind the game tried to at least soften the blow by collecting a series of tribute posts, recounting the game’s history, making concept art available for download, and otherwise looking back on seven years of history with a fond eye. KOG Games is putting forward Elsword as an ideal new destination for former Grand Chase players now down a preferred game.[Source: KOG Games press release]
