While runned by igg game will never be revived ,miss it and wanna play it but not that way..
We gotta be honest here, this ain't fully IGG's fault.
This game is now what, 14 years old? Yeah, I think the Chinese version was released in 2004, correct me if I'm mistaken. VCO was released in December 2006, I think. That was a long time ago. For today's time, the graphics are outdated, the controls are outdated, the gameplay is outdated...
Gaming market today is different that it was 12 years ago. People play less MMORPG's. MMORPG's are a dying genre. Even WoW, which was one of the most popular games and peaked at around 2010 with 12 million subscribers, is now down to the same amount of subscribers it had in Vanilla version, when it was first released, back in the 2005/2006, estimated at 3 million, according to some sources...
Have you heard what happened with the release of Star Wars Battlefront 2? EA locked some characters and apparently it takes around 40-80 hours of playtime to unlock them. People went absolutely berserk. In an attempt to explain why they did that, one of EA's community managers made a comment on Reddit and quickly enough it became the most downvoted comment in Reddits history. And why? Just because gamers were pissed that it takes 80 hours of playtime to unlock something. Compare that to VCO, how long it takes to make 170 gear? 2-3 years? How would they react to that?
The trends are definitely not in favor of this game. This game is like the exact opposite of what gamers want these days.
That being said, before people jump on me for defending IGG, no, I'm not. There's also a lot to blame IGG for. Not advertising the game, lousy support, not fixing bugs, too greedy...
