I really don't think many are talking about shutting down WU and removing it from Steam, not sure where that's coming from. What people are upset about is the broken promises of always supporting WU, that it was to be a sister game, not an unwanted stepchild, and that it would "always" get "all" updates except a few features that would be held back like rifts. It was also promised that it would "always" get all graphical updates. Now it's just being dropped like a piece of trash. There was a lot of skepticism in the beginning and a lot of questions about the potential for this sort of thing happening and everyone was assured that it would not happen. Oh, and we get a final " bugfixing update?" And then you're done with us? Since when has a bugfixing update ever fixed all the bugs? lol. Thanks, I needed a good laugh in the midst of all this.
Speaking for myself of course, but I know a lot of others feel the same, my trust has finally gone completely out the window. I've tried to believe in this company for so long. Sure, I believe you (collective you, the company), will be making an "official" statement. Like all the "official" statements that were made before? What I don't believe any more is that we can put any stock or faith in what's being said. Quite honestly, I doubt I'll believe a single word. You now say "...it won't be getting any of the new WO updates......." Interesting that back when we were all sold on WU in the first place it was "it won't be getting all of the new updates." Big difference there.
To be perfectly honest, I'm starting to really regret that I've continued to support WO all this time by continuing deed upkeep and premium in WO even though I've been playing WU. Now I honestly don't know that I care to continue giving my money to a company I can't trust anything they say. Look at my signature. It's something I live by.
