Gamespy Multiplayer Shutting Down May 31

04 April 2014 - 01:15 PM

Some studios are going to ensure their games be supported in the future. The odds of EA doing the same approach 0 so we can say goodbye to Generals, C&C3 and RA3 multiplayer.

EA, Ubisoft, and Capcom did not respond to our requests for comments.

 

Ofcourse, Because they have no Idea whats wrong with gamespy's Heads, They risk to destroy so much Mutiplayer games. Dunno maybe the developers of gamespy are just drung and have no idea what they write at the blog, or the gamespy developers are just kids who keept fooling peopl even 1st april was over.  :angry:

I've reached out for EA to request confirmation on exactly what the impact on C&C 3 and RA3 will be.  I think I know......but I want to be certain.

Last May there was suppose to be a TEST done at now closed Victory Games to see which C&C Games would cease to function and which ones could operate minimally without the GameSpy tech.  No idea how far along that went as I never asked for an update.

Command & Conquer will cease to function.  The game lobbies are all hosted by GameSpy (including automatch/quickmatch which is nothing more than a lobby you can't see) so without some intervention here online play as we know it will stop without GameSpy.

 

Some things are hosted at EA but not enough to allow any functionality as things are currently configured.

Hmm... just another slap in the face for C&C fans, nothing new. Although it is an indirect one, as this decision was solely by Ziff Davis. Well, a serious shame.

EA seems seriously determined in alienating what little remains of the C&C community.

This is more than an end of a game for me.

 

  Its the end of an era

 

 

 

and maybe the end of video gamming for me. Except for Indie games and other small games I play on my tablet to kill time.

 

 

The big name titles just don't hold my interest anymore. I was a big battlefield fan...... but I recently went back to playing the oldies again. I just find them better.

 

Wolfenstein enemy territory is still going. Maybe Ill check that out again.

You know this whole mind set makes me sick with anger.

 

Me and the wife are playing RA2/YR coop again, as we do regularly. This game is 15 years old, there is no way it would still be supported now.

 

Emperor needed internet for coop, and that was released when most people were still on DUN. I returned that to the store because it was missold and for us unplayable.

 

Recently return C+C4 because it needs permanent internet.

 

 

Yes we live in a highly connected world, but I'm not going to buy something that can effectively be shutdown and rendered near useless by external decisions.

I hope I'm wrong but based on this and what meth said it seems so. You can always use Hamachi and related services though.

So after may 31, mods won't be supported online?

 

Thats a huge hit to the modding community.
