Beloved SoulWorker rogue server Burning SoulWorker has sunsetted

    
7

For the past two years, a rogue server of SoulWorker known as Burning SoulWorker was operating under the stewardship of one individual called Burning. In those two years, the rogue server reportedly became beloved by many, noted by our tipster as superior to the Western release of the game as well as the only version playable in Oceanic territories. Unfortunately, an unforeseen medical need has forced Burning to shut the server down.

According to the farewell letter, Burning has been diagnosed with a hereditary disease that requires residency in a medical facility 24/7 for the months to come. That means Burning SoulWorker will go dark too.

“You might be upset or angry upon learning this news, and I get it. I’m frustrated as well. But all your work and time invested on this server hasn’t been on vain. Together, we did build something to be proud of,” writes Burning. “This game, and the community which I hold dear to my heart, have been my daily grind for over two years. There hasn’t been a single day I could not think, or care, about it. Having to departure in such a short time span has been one of the hardest moments for me in those recent years.”

It’s an interesting situation that there seems to be no successor to pass the server and its data onto. Normally private servers would be flexible with this kind of stuff.

Kinda sucks, ive played on his server many, many times, and have donated for cosmetics, but i wish him well. His own well being comes before anything.

Why can’t he offer to transfer it to someone else who may be just as serious about keeping the project going rather than just shutting it down?

Burning was vastly Superior to the western release. It was still kinda D2W(Donate to Win) as most private servers are but the prices were way better…

I’m hoping the community is taking this in stride and not bashing the owner for this. It’s never fun when something shuts down but it’s hard to argue with the reason on this.

I don’t care about this game at all – but I do hope that person ends up okay. It sounds intense what he is going through.
