Re: Tabula Rasa to shut down in late February 2009
The problem with most of them is that they don't bring anywhere near the level of polish to a game that Blizzard has. Bugs and exploits are oversights that are to be expected. Crappy engine, gameplay, GUI, and lack of updates is another. Tabula Rasa had all of those issues.
The games that work at improving themselves and bring something decent to the table do well. I'd say LOTRO and WAR will probably be around a while with WoW because they don't have those issues and are good games unlike many others that have popped up lately.
