Farewell to My.com MOBA Cloud Pirates, which sunsetted over the weekend

If you blinked, you missed it: Cloud Pirates shut down over the weekend.

My.com announced that it was giving up on its Allods-themed Cloud Pirates MOBA back at the end of August; the game’s last day was technically September 29th, although when we tried to stream it Friday, it had already shut down, frustrating our farewell effort.

At the time, My.com didn’t explain the reason for the sunset, but we assumed it was simply a matter of its low numbers on Steam. The game’s western port had only been known for a year; it hit early access in February, then launched in April.

Our condolences to those affected by the shutdown. There’s a little bit of chatter on the game’s subreddit, including a screenshot gallery of the last days of the game, plus check out Last Level Press’ final video of the game.

Probably closed it due to low player base caused by lack of advertising. Honestly the only reason I even knew about the game was because of some E3 thing a couple years ago, and then nothing.

I saw the first four words in the headline and was hopeful.

Too bad I was wrong.

This one actually had pretty good gameplay. Everything from ship design to abilities was interesting too. The reason I left was the business model and because there just weren’t a lot of players. PvP games that fail to reach a certain threshold of popularity early on tend to die off over time.

So you’re saying they couldn’t acumulus enough players?

What?

MOBA?

Not at all. This was way more like World of Tanks or Star Conflict or Dreadnought. Where do you get MOBA from?

Sunsetting is a term I like to reserve for online games that pass on to the great server in the sky after a long and rich life.

Some games just die.
RIP.

Yeah I have to agree with the monetization thing. Shame. had a lot of potential.

Really fun game. I enjoyed this one. I’m upset that it shut down. I had my gems converted to aurums to play revelation… account got hacked. Then my sub prematurly ended for no reasonable explanation. Too much to deal with.

Yeah, the 3D aspect of this made it a little interesting, but the Pay to get the cool stuff factor, and the standard other issues with MOBAs that somehow still managed to plague it… made it a solid no for me.
