I was just reading through loads of wikipedia articles and I was thinking about getting this game because it sounded good until I saw they stopped it a few days ago. Why did they do it?

No official reason was given, to my knowledge. However, MXO always had a *very* small subscriber count. I suppose it just wasn't profitable to keep the game running. I'm sorry that you weren't able to play... it was an amazing, amazing game.
Wait a minute. He wasn't lying! This isn't even a polygraph. Its a seismograph. We've been having an EARTHQUAKE.

if it's loss of profits why didn't they use in-game billboards. i'm sure there companies out there willing to show there product. maybe SOE thought economy was getting to bad to consider in- game ads.

They had in game ads for years. They took them out in Rarebit's final patch - I hadn't seen one actually used in over a year by that point. I assume *that* wasn't profitable either.

They probably couldn't charge enough to make it worthwhile, considering how small the game's playerbase was at that point.

Exactly. We were a small audience... wasn't worth the investment. And I'm not sure if what was invested was made back... I for one didn't rush out to buy Underarmour after Blue Sky.

Hey, I at least thought about buying Underarmour after seeing all those ads.
