If only they released the source code, or someone rip it and set up their own servers.

I actually find that to be kind of admirable.

Don't get me wrong; I think it's stupid that they shut it down and I'm sure that it's no picnic for you, Mike, but the idea that they actually gave a crap about their reputation and recognized how much micro transactions cheapen the feel of a game is pretty impressive.
I... have to agree. If that's the reason, out of all the other possible ones that could have happened- well, I can respect that one.

I still stand by my earlier assessment, although I've got a better understanding of what's up from Stubs.

That said "Call of Battle: Blokz" would be an epic game...

Sounds fishy. When did you play? It didn't have a huge amount of content when it first launched, but even I never managed to make it through all the content it has now.

I started playing right around the time they launched Ninjago. I had completed most of the Ninjago stuff (although it had gotten very tedious by then), and had completed at least a few of the other areas and had significantly made it through the others. I rolled a second guy as a member of a different faction (originally the knight-in-shining-armor guys, then did the turn-the-Maelstrom-against-itself guys), but didn't really feel too diverse for me.
