What ended up happening?
Spark got rebranded and recoded as a browser based game called "Armor Critical" because the owners thought it would help prospective players be able to try out the game faster. It works just as well now on full screen in the browser as it did with the spark or arc clients, although there are some major bugs that need to get worked out. Since in my opinion it's still the greatest game ever, and the bugs don't usually affect the gameplay, they're not a big deal for me. If you try out the game, you'll want to make sure you have your browser and Java fully updated (do it manually just to be sure) and someone in the lobby might have to help you if you're having trouble getting into your first game. After you figure out that first game though you won't have any more problems. On AC (armor critical) I use the name "Fuse" so if you see me around give me a holler (or a PM). The URL to the new website is: http://armorcritical.com/
Wow! That is great news! I thought the game was completely gone!
I'll have to try this out!
Meh, I will keep this alive.
You became the boss. You are great.
3,000 Karma Day!
This game used to be so much fun!

I randomly got curious about ARC/Spark and stumbled upon this on GameFAQs while doing a search.
Those were the days... I used to wake up early every weekend to participate in league games. APL, ACL, UAL, whatever league there was, I would play in it.
Anyone who supports DLC of any kind deserves a swift kick to the balls... repeatedly. Take a stand! Don't let companies take advantage of us!
