Then people got banned and things got goofy. That is what happens when you let players who admittedly dislike banes and PVP run the show.
And the freaking catering, I mean come ON.

I came back to the game and I was more than happy to push and be a driving force for the production upgrades. The changes to the game that followed afterwards changed the EMU away from what it once was. Once Chet sent his warning the game remained fun until the major changes started taking place. Instead of listening to the people in the community about "how to keep people involved", it seems like they went way overboard and tried to cater to new safe holds which crashed the server so many times I didnt want to log in anymore, character class changes, power changes, Vorg drops, glass drops, skill changes.... CHANGED TOO MUCH!!! The game was designed to be controlled by the population not by the developers and there are a lot of people that have left due to many of these changes that have been made. When I have time, I still like playing Shadowbane but I really dont have the time to even think about playing to be honest. I am consistently swamped with Code, Databases, Servers, Networks and teaching those who are not Tech Savy. The Voice I once had in the EMU was ruined forever when I found the truth that was a well kept secret. Chet did warn us and very few listened to what he was saying. It was Not like me to side with the Chet but on many occasions what he was actually saying needed to be evaluated and not taken lightly. Those that got sick of his Skah! well... he told you all more than once you would regret what you have done. This is the one project I got involved with that had entirely too much secret behind the scenes Skah! going on. RichV, see ya when you make it this way again, always good to catch up!

Every successful game has changes wow / eq = if you dont the game gets stagnant . The changes did not ruin shadowbane they are great changes = outposts beter disc powers etc ok maybe vorg lil too overpowered now but in general changes are like an expansion . What ruined sb is lack of intrest bye dev team , going too long between whipes .
All these people complaing that changes ruined sb rofl look at magicbane original sb and dead as emulator ! So how can the changes have ruined sb when the unchanged server is dead also? Please tell me why the original unchanged game is dead how did the changes ruin that????

Couple of the changes was alright ideas but most were just god awful. First couple years of this project were amazing until people starting getting banned for dumb Skah!. RIP to SBemu, was fun while it lasted.

Individuals getting banned didnt cause the de-population of the playerbase. I know your egos will argue to the contrary but... the simple truth is that the lagfest banes/mines did this project in. That and the projects inability(Seemingly) to listen to consensus. I mean, the game had to die at some point but not like this. A slow, painful, self inflicted, pathetic death. Like choking yourself until you die like a retard.

I'm grateful for this EMU and MB both. Great times had on both servers, will miss this game dearly.

The game has been dead for a while really. I tried playing again, but gave up on it. My memories of it are far better than the game actually is. It's kind of like your first piece of [fluffy bunnies]. There are too many games out there that are better. Mortal Online was good, I play Gloria Victus now and am having a good time, at least until CrowFall comes out and is playable for an extended period of time. As much as I enjoy the memories, the game simply isn't worth coming back to. I do however applaud both teams for the work they put in in keeping it alive.

The only thing that could save it is a license (See Darkfall, Dark & Light) where you could actually add content and advertise to bring in a new population. Unfortunately,that isn't going to happen.

If it took many years for you to reap the rewards of an "I told you so", that's a really low return on investment.

goofybane was fun, the last 2 phases were the best SB i played since pay2play

The lack of progress on the set back and the insane multiboxing escalation ultimately killed it

Somethings never change still grinding out the ole victory by attrition. Cheddorz is still seeking Validation through lame [fluffy bunnies] morale victories.
