    -comment modified by myself for being way too brutal, pardon the red thirst.

    At least The9 finnaly stopped beating the dead horse, now it can sleep for good.

    Damn. I stumbled on R5's website yesterday by accident and thought it was permadead. Don't even get a proper chance to say goodbye to FF, do we? Glad I made the most of it last year then.

    I knew it was coming and yet I'm still sad to see it go. Had a lot of fun times on this game a few years back. So despite the state it was left to rot away in, I wanted something more to come of it. Weird to say that about a game. It was downright depressing to watch it be left to collapse in on itself over time. Ah well. Glad I had fun in it when I could. Got to experience something unique and shockingly enjoyable.

    At least we'll have Em-8er at some point. Which I have rather high hopes will be a worthy successor to what Firefall once was.

    Well, it took a while, but the day has come. I dont know what to say about this, but Im still happy some of the community is still here in Em8er. I hope Em8er will be unique and beautiful too.

    Bye Bye Firefall!

    Yeah, in the past two years Firefall was a terminal patient begging for euthanasia. Finally its torment is coming to an end.

    All the more motivation for Em8-er to blow Firefall out of the water. I'm angry, but let's use this as a reminder to learn from Firefall's mistakes and make Em8-er the best it can be.

    This is why we say nein to The9, kids.

    "Your efforts and loyalty will not go without recognition, however. Firefall is currently developing a mobile version of the game and all of Firefall’s founders and players will be rewarded greatly in the new game. We will be sure to provide everyone with more updates as we have them."


    Also, not that it would be true, but how is Firefall itself supposed to develop something?

    Hahaha, I think they saw how successful was Mark's last IGG campaign and said "Fuck this shit!". :D

    Rip Firefall, we had fun. Now close your eyes and let Ember Carry the torch.

    That was always the expected end result. Its too bad, as I had years of fun in the game, before The9 turned it into Gun of Warcraft™. Lets hope that Grummz can achieve what he sets out to this time. RIP Firefall.

    Still sad to see it close down.

    Been through many of the changes for that game, everytime some of them I really liked, others not, but I still really enjoyed my time playing the game overall, lots of fun moments aswell with others and the events where the devs showed up as chosen and we all swarmed them to try and take them down ... good times.

    Wish it would have been succesfull, never even got to see the third race, learn some more about Aero's past, what was going to happen with graves eventually, etc etc ...

    No matter what, this is always a sad thing. It is simply a reminder as to what could have been - and although Em-8ER I'm sure will easily meet this need I feel, it is still sad to see something that had so much promise turn to dust.

    RIP my favourite game ever, but I'm sure Em-8ER will take its place, if it hasn't already.

    Though I believe the mobile talk is still their way of keeping firefall out of Grummz's hands, we all knew this was coming.

    Firefall is the reason why we are getting Em-8ER. I carry on four gaming friends, two who are close personal friends, and hundreds of hours of amazing experiences because of firefall. I'm content with how things have played out since Grummz's departure.

    I'm actually downloading Firefall again, so I can get in and take a picture in my favorite area one last time.

    Its Sertao in the large crystal area, but its really high up, so high you can see New Eden.
