Termination of Online Services?!

Postby Prospektor » Tue May 31, 2011 6:27 am

Today, when logging on to Battle Rondo, the launcher gave me following news update:

So, that's it? This quick? I know the rumors, and yeah, it wasn't exactly a good sign that the latest figures came without codes, but in August everything will end? My shinkis will be lost in a virtual limbo or even killed (terminated)?
If somebody with a grasp of the Japanese language will organize an effort to prevent this, I'm in. Signing petitions, participating in demonstrations in front of local Konami branches or whatever.
If they would have given a longer "deadline", end of the year or better, end of next year, okay. But it starts NOW.
Maybe I'm a bit more emotional since I just started playing 6 or 8 weeks ago ... :sad:

Yes. It looks like services will end at the end of August. It really seems too soon for me also. They just added 4 "new" Shinkis to Battle Rondo, and personally, I just started playing a little over a year ago. I'm really disappointed that things are coming to an end already. I think they should at least give everyone Premium access for all of August or something like that.
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:

At this point, I think every shinki with a Code has been added.
Also explains why the last few had such lackluster animations.
HEre's hoping they have better luck with Battle Masters

This is just so wrong on many levels! They need to at least keep it going so slower players can max out their Shinkis. They need to also get out an OP with Renge, Kohiru and the new gals that were added. Whoever decided to terminate this needs a kick in the rear end for not seeing this through till the end!

Keep Battle Rondo alive damn it! All they needed to do was updated it then people would play more of it. If they needed profit then they should of experimented with donation bars and the like.

And I thought they make enough (not much, but enough) money with the SPT shop, judging by the amount of wings and weapons and dresses I come across when I try to get to A class.
By the way, your blog really helped me getting started with BR, thanks for your work.

It'd be great if this somehow would be possible. I mean, it takes up 7.28 GB on my HD, should be more than enough. At least with Diorama Studio I don't see a problem, from what I understand it's just posing (haven't tried it out yet)

Ya, they have enough to keep it running for a few years to come. Is this because of the financial issues caused by the Earthquake or someone making poor choices in the thinking room? Either way, as you said, they had enough money from the SPT shop. I've always encountered those with digital paywares gears & accessories. Also, they got enough from figures and Battle Master paywares as well....

*bows with right hand tucked towards chest* And glad to be of service, and to be of assistance to you! :P Sadly, I now have to focus on Battle Masters fully. Not sure how I'll record those onto Youtube with the lack of proper recording....
