I'd just like to share with everyone which servers will go offline for EA games. (Date: 2014-06-30|YYYY-MM-DD)

Here's a list:



These will go offline permanently from what I've read, and the only way to play these games online with others would be via networks like GameRanger, LogMeIn Hamachi, Tunngle, etc.

Edit 1: A company (unknown) will establish new servers for some of these games in the future. It's still unknown which titles will live on.

Edit 2: They will shut down on June 30th. EA has also said that they will look to fans for a way to preserve the online community for these games.

If you know anything else about this, please share. Smile Thumb Up

Indeed it is, but hopefully someone will re-establish the servers.

Yeah, this a true shame...

Guess I won't be able to play Mad online again...

And now I'm canceling The Crusader Games!

Don't do that, you can still play her online, you just need to set up a network. I play via GameRanger.

Oh, cool...

Hopefully I can learn how to do that! lol... I'm sure it's easy.

Though seriously, I'm getting SICK of working on The Crusader Games! I barely done ANY work on it and it just looks more lazy then weird... Ehh.... Plus, I think Worldbuilder hates me. None of my scripts are working for it.

I do see why EA is doing this though.

As a game gets older and more new games come out, less and less people play the old game... And it eventually stops being worthwhile for them to pay money to keep the servers up and running...

Though I do kinda wish they kept up the Zero Hour server... XD

At least they were kind enough to give us a big heads-up on when this happens instead of just saying "WE'RE PULLIN' THE PLUG NOW!". We got until June 30th 'till they shut 'em off for good.

Actually, it's not EA's decision. GameSpy are the ones who are hosting these servers for them, and they're the ones that are going to shut down. That is why EA are looking for new hosts, and hopefully they will find one or more. Thumb Up
