The Zapper!: "Bad Jokes Abound"
Posted: Tuesday January 29th, 2008 by

While I was digging through gaming news yesterday, I found and article discussing a new direction for Shadowbane. Curious, I followed the link to a new patch to the game's test server. Apparently it has been decided that to benefit the game it has become necessary to reset all the game data and start from scratch. Character info will be wiped, city zones will be flattened, tower guards will be removed, and armor sets will be improved, etc.
Source: Shadowbane: News [ more info ]

Now, I've not played Shadowbane (sorry guys) so I have no idea how drastically this could impact the game. I will however admit that I'm afraid this could cost them users even though the game is free. The question is, could it actually push them, finally unfortunately, into the Zapper? I mean, I just can't image having my character data wiped for any reason and being okay with it. Again though, I'm not certain how itemization works in Shadowbane. It could very well be a shrug-worthy even that's easily recovered from.

I leave the door open here for Shadowbane players to comment.

Sorry the comic was late. I Had to get everything set back up again. Took me a bit longer than I expected.
