If that strikes you as the sort of thing that should not have been permitted to happen, well, you aren’t alone in that. But that’s the world we live in.
You can argue whether it’s the longest-running steadily updated superheroic MMO, but you can’t argue that it’s been in operation longer than anything else. Collectively, it turns out that players have had about 5500 years in-game, which is more than twice the age of the Great Wall of China. Those are your fun statistical factoids for the game, but we’re sure that some other unintentionally depressing fact will come along before too long.
