As soon as a new shiny toy comes out, they will shut it down just like they did with City of Heroes. The shutting down and termination of what we thought would be a long continuation of an amazing MMO is heartbreaking to it's community, I as a part of it.
I pre-ordered GW2, however I am requesting a refund after this. NCsoft is sick, their marketing strategies are vile. Shut down a game to profit another game? Most of the profit lost wasn't from CoX in the last few quarters, in fact sub numbers were going up.
This is how NCsoft operates, when a new shiny toy comes out they will drop the old one and focus the new one. Just wait til it's your turn, when GW2 is old and rusty.
