RaiderZ is shutting down in August

Perfect World is shutting down RaiderZ, effective August 7th at 1:00 p.m. EDT. The firm says that payments back-dated to May 7th will be refunded to your Arc account balance and will be available for spending in other PWE titles.

MAIET, the original developer of RaiderZ, has ceased operations, and Perfect World says that it is therefore unable to troubleshoot persistent server issues or “deliver a quality experience,” hence the shutdown.

“Neverwinter had the same controls and didn’t feel that way at all.” 
Not sure if you actually played the game there bud. 
Thanks for the review though. 
 
Also the server that I play on is http://www.wildraiderz.com/
The server he been up for years.
Perfect World is why the game is shut down.
The entire company shut down last year, bought out by Arc.

Neverwinter had the same controls and didn’t feel that way at all. It wasn’t the combat system, it was the game. In RaiderZ the character was slow to respond and to me, did feel clunky. I was playing a melee class, and I do not have a game pad for my PC. Just because I don’t like a game and you do, doesn’t make me bad at it. To each his own, I guess. I’m sorry they shut your game down. That happened to me and it sucks.

The Combat in RaiderZ is extremely smooth, watch a higher level player play the game and you’re realize that you’re just inexperienced quickly. 
The game does feel better with a gamepad for melee classes, from my experience, using a keyboard to play heavier games like it isn’t enjoyable. 
I’ll also ass that it Requires knowledge and player input,  If you’re bad at controlling your character, the game won’t feel as fluid. 
The combat, though graphics clearly not of the same caliber, feels better than that of Witcher, the dark souls series and even bloodborne, and those are the only games I’ll consider worthy in comparison. 
You’re effectively calling the combat system of each of those games “clunky” 
That is absolute misinformation.

This game actually wasn’t that bad. Probably the best Monster Hunter-esque game on PC(that’s not actual Monster Hunter). The only thing I can say I hated was the lack of LFD. I hear the shop was pretty bad. I wonder how things would have gone if the game had been Buy To Play.
