And of those 800 that signed that petition, how many of them are going to stay subbed and continue playing on the Harbringer/Bastion? :P
Closing APAC is only going to have a miniscule impact on their subscriber base, while saving a lot in costs. Smart business decision. Given the bad state of the company, I don't blame them.
Yeah exactly. Most people understand this.
What most people, me included, seem to be annoyed about is the way they are trying to spin it. If they had just said 'we're closing it down, not making any profit from it, can't support the server costs any longer given the player base on all 3 servers' I think most people would react like this:
'well that sucks, but fair enough.'
