players should really push for dedicated server software. it keeps good online games from vanishing.

Like corporations would ever let that happen. That would mean they would have to actively compete against past products that aren't making money anymore but are still kept alive by a community of fans.

they used to. i have a whole list of dedicated servers in steam. it used to be cheaper to let the community put up servers and take on the bandwidth costs. now it's so cheap it's easier to dump the old game an release a new one with more in common with the last game than not. it's kinda shady.

I want the Blacklight beta from 2013 back. The game was damn near perfect and had dedicated servers. Everything that Perfect World and later Hardsuit Labs did ruined the game, slowly killing it.
