I would be completely out of hope if the entire Busou Shinki line was going downhill but it clearly is not. There have been recent releases, BM, and the fact that they're making anime shorts. Tho it is saddening and I hope that something changes, I'm not TOO upset because...I mean...there's so many people complaining and Busou Shinki is still retaining success. I honestly think this is just temporary...It would not surprise me at all to see a revamped, second version of BR after this cancelation.
You're right, there are a lot of possibilities, for example a restart of BR as a completely free game - having the shop, of course, to make money, but no need for a code/a bought figure. Who knows?
The suggestions are already out, so next time I contact them I will explain that, as good as Battle Masters might be, it is a completely different game and I don't like it AND THAT'S WHY THEY HAVE TO STOP THESE SHENANIGANS!
:waffebunny:
The reason they are probably taking down Rondo would be because Battle Masters is a lot more popular and doesn't require keeping servers online which costs money.

Diorama Studio offline on the other hand would be nice to have as it fills a niche BR doesn't, even if the two games are completely different.

I doubt Rondo will be coming back once it's gone because of Battle Masters.

So, they put everything on sale and I thought oh hey right on, I'll buy some of the clothes I haven't been able to purchase for one last go at Diorama Studio before it's too late, and bought myself some webmoney. But, apparently we're unable to actually buy points so I'm stuck with webmoney and don't know what to use it on. Is it just temporary or am I really unable to buy anymore stuff for BR/DS? Guess I'll have to find somewhere else to spend it if that's the case. :?

Yeah. They ended the sale of Shinki Points some weeks ago.
If you have an unused Maochao Battle Rondo code and don't plan on using it, please send me a PM! I'd gladly accept any other unused codes as well. :schmetterling:

Aren't there any private servers avaliable? Phantasy Star Online, for example, is still playable to this day thanks to hackers.

I dunno. I'm not sure BR has enough interest anymore for people to make one?

Given the huge fanbase the figures have in Japan, I would be surprised if a private server didn't show up in the next few weeks, even if the game isn't the star of the franchise.
