Sforza is right.

No he is not. Wasabii can host the game indefinitely, we will never see new content though if NTL is no longer developing.

People need to stop mixing up NTL with Netmarble, they are not the same company. Netmarble is no longer publishing DBO because they are now losing money and it isn't worth the investment. This announcement comes from Netmarble not NTL.

This means it is still possible NTL is still developing DBo, just unlikely. Bottom line is as long as dbo TW is making a profit it wont close, even if we don't see another update for 3 years. signs to look for include server merges, 3rd party company's removed (gameguard), extreme cash shop sales.

These all point to cutting costs and we have already seen these signs. Bottom line Just cause KR is closing doesn't effect TW or HK sale in anyway. Netmarble does not develop the game at all.

This is the first time I've seen the KR version of a game close first. Heck, I've actually never seen the KR version of a game close, all the other ones usually closed and the KR one stayed open.


Server 1 currently. Sorry for shitty crop.

We had this discussion before. That's based on how much the server can hold. if a channel on that server can hold 100,000 people and they have 10,000 it's going to look like the bars only 10% full. If another server can hold 10,000 people and has 10,000 people the bar is going to be full. It doesn't necessarily mean there's more people. As for the other versions of the game shutting down I'd say it's almost guaranteed. I can see TW having a chance of staying open but I'd say HK is going and TW probably is too. I honestly don't think Wasabii is making a profit off of DBO anymore either, maybe TW is but still I wouldn't count on it.

Wasabii still can host it though as long as they want. It's up to them when they want to shut it down. Just because they have tons of players doesn't mean they're making more money. The more players there are, the more it actually costs to run the game (due to costs of the servers) so if they're not making enough money to compensate for that it's a stupid move financially to keep the game open.

I doubt Netmarble will give us files for a private server. If you guys want one I'd say wait until DBO HK closes. If we do manage to get the files from DBO HK then even if all the versions close we can still run DBO. We could also make it a full English version and take out all the things people don't like and add things people do like.

At moment we can only suppose servers like TW or HK close or not... There are a lot of ppl online in Tw and there are no reasons to close it, we can only wait the notice on wasabii-dbo and hope that they do not close the TW server... Is so stupid try to make predictions about the future of dbo with no news...

Im very sad, its all im going to say, i was leveling a fighter and was going to level a turtle aswell. Now i will stop and go to league of legends 100%. Thanks to god that i never cashed

Look at the top games from netmarble, now look at Wasabii. See the difference? Netmarble is most likely cutting their losses with DBO, while Wasabii is more likely to keep the game running as they don't have much else. But lets just play the wait and see game "/

I seen this many time example like S4 league KR.

Well there is 2 final options here:

Option 1.-) NTL will still development DBO now in Wasabii as main Company, we will get better and fasters updates and everybody will be happy, (except the ones who plays on korea's server)

Option 2.-) Wasabii will close the dbo service same as Netmarble, and it will be the end of dbo.

Option 3.-) NTL cry.

Isn't the first time a DBO server has been shut down, NTL's website shows a Chinese dbo:

What happened to that? BTW, anyone notice that NTL's website was last updated 12/21/12? Dropping gameguard and not updating their website for 8 months now, can't get anymore suspicious.

Look there ^^
They only develop for 4 games, I doubt/hope they aren't dropping that number to only 3 :/

Posted 1 week ago...

If things are going on like this, i say DBO wont survive 2014... maybe not even 13...
Maybe the rumors NTL is out of money, are true... would at least explain the last
couple of "Updates"..

Guess i was right!
