I had been a shdowbane long players like many others arround the world. The dark moments of Shadowbane server shutdown for good has been an irrespossible way by ubi. Though it is free but players never ask UBI to do so, it is a simple fact that after years of efforts come to an end and UBI think is ok with such actions. I will never buy any other games nor support UBI games ever, as I am not sure will they pull the plug like they did for shadowbane. My believe is they will happen again just the matter which games or when shall it happen.

I agree totally with the statement above...but one question still remains UBI...WHY?...Did the idea well just dry up?...and yes I doubt a responce will come,seeing as those of us that did play THE BEST PVP MMORPG that has ever existed still have not heard the real reason why...The only responce I've heard is that "Shadowbane the sword" was lost in the Void...a lame story ending...Massive FAIL UBI...no more of my money or time for you.

What money? the game was freeware and free to play, and had been since 2006.

I think hes talking about buying UBI games. Its an old game and yes it was free but UBI has ****ed alot of people off.

no firm can afford to run something for free indefinatly, get over it. bigger games that were actualy subscription supported have gone down in the past. it's just a case of when it starts making loss or stops getting updates and get's dated and people stop playing it isnt worth thier while paying for servers for a relitvly small number of people.

but then the truth is if this was realy that big the Ubi servers going down wouldnt matter http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

I think UBI did all it could short of making the code open source. The sad part is, Shadowbane was a badly coded and dated game even when released but is missed because it is still one of the only MMOs that did not follow the Everquest formula. You hook up with the right group and you could be R7, geared and helping to defend a city in the same day. Try to stay a loner or having poor PvP skills, timing or social skills meant a rough life for most who tried this game. Games that are hardcore PvP with real asset loss will always be niche, most people cannot handle groups of people with superior skills banding together and victimizing them. The only thing I am miffed at UBI over, Wolfpack as well, is the poor execution of Shadowbane is almost a poster child for other companies to avoid most of the elements in Shadowbane.

I feel about he same way, we never ask for new content or patches, hell i was happy with the way it was, as far as the niche thing, there was off-peek(small grp,1v1) then peek time pvp, UBI just made a poor discusion imo about pulling the plug, they could of just consolidated into one server and that would of been fine too. No more ubi game for me, bring SB back in some form or another.

First off this is a new account because I have never been to these forums and this is my only account. Second, Ubisoft makes some great games and I love playing them. I understand you bought Shadowbane and kept it running and for that I thank you. But for what you have done to the community of this game sickens me. The least you could of done was at least made an effort to make some money with it. You could of thrown the idea of pay to play. Announce that you would charge month to month and see how the community dealt with it. I am more then sure you would have enough people paying to keep at least 1 server up if not more. Yes the game is old, yes its got its problems but you know what, Its the only game of its kind. You just shot the last white tiger in the world. Now the little children will never see a white tiger again. Please release the server side of this game do not let it collect dust on the shelf.

The moment i started to have my hands on SHADOWBANE.. immediately i loved this game so much and i trully enjoyed it till the very last day. It was an easy move for you guys to just pulled those plug and wiped off the entire SB forum too, but it was a very painful moment for those who spend hours of time and even many meaningful years in SB. Have UBI ever consider that..??? I believe the whole world would love dying to pay to play for SB it is just the matter of UBI getting into action. There will never be any other PvP game that will replace SB and i believe lots of great SB players will not be investing their precious time in UBI game anymore... I trully wish UBI will re-consider to bring life to SB again and please start charging us. Long live Shadowbane we wish...

Yes it does appear so. Its just that people were happy while Shadowbane was live so no one felt like posting here. Now with Shadowbane gone situation is different. Most of my posts were on SB UBI boards and SBG forums.

As you said before this game havent earned a cent for 3 years. But still someone cared for SB community enough to prolong shutting down for two more months. Unfortunately, that backfired in UBI's face as most of the people saw this more as a torment than gift.
If those UBI guys who care for this game are still out there PLEASE release the code. If its dead for you its not for us. I personally dont have the strength to uninstall the game. The most important thing there are people willing to reunite now scattered SB community.

Oh and one more thing. Dont sell it to Aeria games please! They will butcher it with item malls and most likely unballance it to unplayablity.

For the sake of humanity (no matter how little of it left in the world) not corrupted by coporate minds and interests, PLEASE give us the code and make hundreds of people happy.

Thank you.

The real shame is the forum was killed, so all the archived posts going back to the start of the game are no longer available. Half the fun of SB was reading the forum posts after a fight.

Since SB Vault is down and there is really no central forum for ex-SB players anymore, people will probably want to create new accounts here since this is where shadowbane.com links now. I doubt UBI would want their general forums used for this.

Perhaps UBI could release the archived posts and let someone in the SB community host the forums with the url:shadowbane.com redirected there.

It is always a shame to see MMO's go offline but many developers have had to do the same at a late stage of a games life. The list of short-lived MMO's is actually huge now and despite Shadowbane coming out in 2003, it was sad to see the servers being closed.

I can understand many of you will be upset at this happening but there is nothing that can be done at this stage.

I would pay again in a heartbeat...SB is the best pvp mmorpg out there...Yeah I checked the trailer on AC 2, Darkfall sux, Mortal Online might be ok...WOW is too childish and a myriad of others...none can hold a candle to SHADOWBANE...

Please release SB to someone who can host it...

By the way, if any ex-SBer's need a good time killer, I highly recommend Egosoft's X3 Terran Conflict. It's a different genere and not multi-player, but requires intelligence to actually play without cheating. Start with the Bankrupt assassin and it has some of the feel of starting in SB.

I'd really like if my fellow Shadowbaners could refrain from posting comments like "rofl! UBI Epic fail" etc etc. Instead let us give these guys some valid arguments as to what could and should be done.


I can understand many of you will be upset at this happening but there is nothing that can be done at this stage.

Not entirely true, sir. Like I said in my previous post, if the game is over to you its not for us. A lot of MMORPGs is going down nowdays. Why cant we make a difference? Why can't UBI make a difference by giving us the code? Im sure news about that kind of act of good will would spread like a forest fire.

You have no idea how many people would like to see Shadowbane alive again. There is also some arua of fanatism around every Shadowbane fan and if someone says that he/she wont buy another UBI game for the rest of his/hers life, you can bet thats how is going to be. So UBI is losing more than just a "dead" game.

Now, if there is anyone here who can pass our wishes to UBI staff, doing it would be much appreciated.

Give us the code.

I could cry. Though I did not play shadowbane from beta, nor did I pay for 6 accounts, I truly miss the amazing one of a kind world of Aerynth. No other game was nearly so unique as shadowbane, and I would gladly pay for it. How many other games had PVP on such an epic scale? None. No games let you alter the world like Shadowbane. Nothing gave you the ability to customize a character like Shadowbane. And no game out there let you wantonly murder everything in sight like Shadowbane.

I know the game wasn't making money. Since they removed the billing to subscribe, they only made one attempt to make money (remember the Dell commercials? The shoe commercials?). I fully realize how low the chances are of Ubisoft releasing Shadowbane to the public, or making a sequel, but I think there is more than enough demand to do so.

Let the Minotaurs run free again!

this goodbye thread was a joke 1st the server went down for 3 weeks from time to time
(i already had the feelings at this time that sb ends) then u give us this easter high xp rate weekend
and then?? shadowbane retirement O.o boo just that nothin else
u guys <span class="ev_code_RED">edit</span> knewed that this game had a big core community
in all that years no thread about hey guys we got problems will u pay 2play again

Because of this, I am boycotting Ubi and respectfully call all who loved Shadowbane - to temporary stop purchasing their products, until our favorite MMO game is back. Financial pressure seems to be the only persuasion corporations understand.
Personality, love, spirit - they mean nothing.
Dollars - what makes directors listen.

Hail and well met,

I am one of those people who was absolutely indulged in the world of Shadowbane, and have found no replacement. I have been trying since the April to try and find a game that compares but everything falls short, and although many of the people I played with will never find their way here I know they feel the same. We often meet in vent and have been for months in search of a replacement but have found NOTHING.

I am sure UBI had many reasons for shutting down Shadowbane but to the loyalists that love every aspect of the game it is pretty heart wrenching. I am not sure where Shadowbane will go from here but I know that there is little chance of it ever really dying off.

It would certainly be kind of UBI to either bring SB back or at least provide a replacement, which is most likely impossible. I know that my rant is in vain but there just isn't a game on the market that compares in my eyes.

Thanks for your time.
Kinslayer

P.S. In all honesty what would have to happen to bring this game out of retirement... I mean seriously Brett Favre does it every year and Michael Jordan did it like three times...

Shadowbane is better than both of those people...

If its about the money people would pay to play this game until UBI could come up with the next big thing...

lquidcool
07-26-2009, 02:03 PM
I fill ya Simonslayz but the chance of shadowbane coming back from UBI is slim to none.

Me and some friends are in the process of building a game in the Memory of SB but we are starting from scratch....Long road ahead of us.

There is a SB EMU coming up BUT I THINK it will be junk and i don't think it is right for them to do it. If they have that much time on there hands just code a new game.

Shadowbane was the best PvP MMORPG on the market in my mind.

Naturally, everyone is going to have mixed opinnions about the game, as they do with every game, movie, music, food, etc. So, I think people should stop whining and fighting with each other about how awesome they think a game is or how bad it is. For those of us who loved the game, a simple question... IS there going to be life for Shadowbane now that it's been killed? I think that if Ubisoft has officially killed the game, they should either sell the rights to it, or release the coding so some people who love the game can still play it. In all honesty, I wouldn't care to release the source code to a game I created and was shut down, as long as who ever took it over wasn't making any profit off of it (unless it was purchased, of course). So, anyone know of anything, or any UbiSoft employees know anything they are willing to share? Are there ongoing negotiations, or is it officially dead for good? Anything would be greatly appreciated. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ditto, I would just like to be able to play the game again. I could care less if I have to pay or whatever but certainly would be nice to have the option. As far as letting us know, our "cult" following of SB feeds off this game and would appreciate just a heads up on its fate. There was a reason why there was an extra two months of gameplay added after initial notice of shutdown, and there is no doubt that this game would still have a player base.

I do also miss Shadowbane terribly and am somewhat miffed the forums, with years of humerous to read archives, are gone.

However, I also realize Ubi actually bent over backwards providing the game for free for so long. I suspect one of the reasons the plug was finally pulled was the headache of dealing with the almost constant overt racism displayed by what was left of the playerbase. Although Ubi was not responsible for the enforcement here, no corporation would risk bad press on a profitless product.

It is also true that despite it's age, Shadowbane has yet to be replicated as far as seige warfare with varieties of destructable objects. To give away the source code would be giving away some tried and tested programming to possible competition.

Anyways, it was a good run and nothing out there can get your heart pumping like SB. Hopefully something will be released that will satisfy.

Funny thing is that as technology and programming software advance, an older game like Shadowbane could be replicated from scratch by a small team in their spare time. I think this is where hope lies because I do not think a mainstream company will release a hardcore PvP game with a complex custom charater development system and very fast advancement to competeing at the highest level.

I hold nothing against Ubi and would buy any game they release that looked good. The only thing I would add would be for purely human compassion- please reopen at least the general area of the SB forums and make everything else archiveable.

Greetings noobs, and nooblings. I was Xarael Demonicus/Kryptkeeper from the Mourning Server Dark Carnival guild. I just tried to log in today and found out the news. This sucks. Is there any forums for people who still talk about the game? To keep in touch or something.

Could anyone tell me who I would need to contact from UBI to ask about the game and its ownership?

Cause I would really like to see this game run again a lot of people enjoyed playing it including myself and if it could be run again I know a lot of people would be overjoyed at the news.

I, myself, was a new player when UBI said that they were closing it down.

I have played some amazing MMOs :

Twelve Sky2
Perfect World UK
Wurm-Online
Runescape
Zu Online
Dragonica
Rohan Blood Feud Global

and many others, but Shadow-bane.... It was in a whole other leauge.

Shadow-bane did not have great graphics (So i could play it on my PC. 1UP), yet it had GOOD graphics.

The gameplay was a whole other world

The music, the environments, the enemies, the quests, the npcs....Amazing.

I would happily pay /$5 a month to play this game.

Runescape costs 5 a month, so does Wurm online and they are live and kicking.
Yet they suck http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif

I agree with many of the other posters here, shadowbane had much more content than any other gamei have tried out there. The only thing the game could of used was a simple update to graphics and it would have brought more people flocking back to it.

Just to point out as the guys post above mine proves that the game still gained the attention of new people. If anything a petition or a perhaps a contract with independent party could bring back the game let me know Id be glad to play again because nothing out there really matches to the entertainment shadowbane provided.

I played SB from release to shut down, and I cant say any more than all of you already have. It was the one game I could never get enough of. By the time i had a Character to 30 I had another idea I couldn't wait to try. The PvP.... exilarating and just plain fulfilling.

Many people have said they would pay for the re-release of our loved SB. I think anyone who loved this game and would like to play it again should send this thread to anyone they can get in contact with, or is affiliated with UBI. One guy above said it, if you get 1000 people to come back to SB, and just open one server, charge 15 a month, could it really cost $15,000 to run a small server of that size for one month?

I may be over doing it, and going on, but it is worth it to me. SB was a relaxing change from the hassle of work and school and every other stressful environment we deal with. NO OTHER GAME COMES CLOSE.... lets get a re-release or at least a private server. Lets make UBI aware of how popular this game STILL is. We will pay.

Count me in on joining the petition if one is ever started. Hopefully if enough people post on the forums about wanting this game to come back it would probably be enough to get them to make a comeback with the game. I would most def pay to play this game. It was lots of fun and i have about 30 others that would be willing to join the petition and i know they would be willing to pay to play, we were all and still to this day in a guild. (Concordia)

I heard from a well known source,a very well known developer, which I will keep his Identity covert, tells me that there are plans that have already been in the works for Shadowbane. Now this may be true or not, although from a very reliable source, why else would UBI not release or at least offer the code, many times someone has offered to purchase it I've heard as much as 5 million. So Who knows, maybe everyone is getting worked up for nothing. The only problem is that subscription based pvp is a dying bread these days, so ubi is looking at maximum profit, as they usually do, and may chose not to re-develop or develop a pvp based of Shadowbane. See more and more developers and publishers are releasing cash shop/ cash item pvp games which imo bite the big one but that is what sells and after all gaming companies like ubi are after the big bucks, there are more plug and play and carebears out there then die hard pvp players like you and me. I personally would love to see Shadowbane come back, maybe with a crafting, harvesting and housing model. Improved graphics of course with new armor and weapons models. Anyway who knows what the future brings guys. Just stop taking it out on the moderators after all they are just trying to run a good community, us your brain speak with intelligence then no one will be able to argue with you.

They have a reason they shutdown shadowbane.

1. they was not making much money when it was pay to play
2. it was not growing
3. they made it free to see how much it would grow and it did not really grow. So they gave up.

Ubi is a company trying to make money. The ones who make the orders careless about the game itself and more about the numbers. The numbers were not there. They decided that they were going to just focus on consoles; where they are making a killing.

Shadowbane has a very strong and loyal fan base but there are not that many of us. If there was even 3000 accounts at 10$ a month that is only 30000$ so only 360,000$ a year. That would pay about 5 people that work in a gaming/computer field with no profit gains for the company.

Just be happy they gave us a year or two of free play.

I agree with you Salvo that we do not need to take it out on the workers or mods.
They just do their job. They have no say in the decision made by the leaders of the company.

If you want to save shadow-bane. Professionally send a letter or call and see what they will sell the code for, if they will give it away or even have a meeting with them. Whining and bashing will not get it done.

And on the fact that your going to boycott UBI products is not going to work. There are not enough shadow-bane users to cause them money worries. Their games are very popular and get A GREAT DEAL OF SALES! 3000 people will not make a difference.

I don't really know what to say, but I as well was devastated when I found out that shadowbane had been comepletely canceled. I had quit playing for a while ( due to loss of internet ). And was really looking forward to coming back to it again. I had played hard core, 12-16 hours every day for 2 years straight. I have tried other MMO's, but their PVP is nothing compared to shadowbane, world of warcraft, dark age of camelot ect.
I would definately pay again to have shadowbane back, or even shadowbane 2 as long as it held true to the pvp/character customization of the old shadowbane. Would rather pay $20.00 a month for a game like this, than $15.00 a month for WoW any day...

I know many SB fans out there who would like to see SB2 come out in the near future. I came to know many new friends from SB and have stayed loyal for years waiting for an updated version. My guild has bounced from game to game thinking it was the next Shadowbane but it always lead to a big dissappointment. Ubi should really concentrate on coming out with a new SB with all the same concepts but with updated graphics, engines and servers. Thousands would flock back to SB and many more would quit WoW and other bs games for the real deal SB.... And if Ubi is smart they would get Ashen back and make this a reality.... $$$$$$$$$$$

Im a good bit late but my opinion is.
This was infact the only pvp game I liked.
Also I managed to get someone hooked on it right before it closed down and he hated pvp games.
The bad reviews from the game ive ever read was people too lazy to level up.
Yes that was also faster than any game ive played and easy as well.

So my options would be if I was the marketing team would be.

3000 people play the game they have (?) amount of friends they tell about our product.
So the 3000x?= try other ubisoft games.

I hate all of there console games there so gay so thats not going to happen for me.
And the click the icon to turn pvp on and off is also annoying.
The best part about this game wasnt just you could own a town and wage wars for it.
The best part was a level 25 could infact have a fighting chance against a level 75 thus not makeing you angry because u get gang raped by someone every time you do something alone.

The amount of classes races the items was a bit slim but not bad.
Sure they had glitches yet thats whats suppose to drive you to do better.
To host a server isnt much more than the cost of electricity a single person can work the servers effectivly.
Took em forever anyways to answer your report's.

Here would be the money fixes.

(1) Place advertisments in the game.( Not on the logg in thats realy annoying) ie: On a building,armor,weapon,the maker of the walls.

(2) Advertise a bit ive never seen a shadowbane comercial at all. Hell I didnt even see it in stores.

(3) Hold auctions for special items there are actually people in the game with more money than they know what to do with that go for the easy way out.

(4) To fix the whinny people who just start. (Make each account have a test toon on it thats 75 but basic gears and a time limit from the time the account is made till the time that toon dissapears from the account.
Or test server with new toon makers starting out at 75 with nothing but basic noob stuff.

(And the server being selectable from the logg in screen not haveing to change the connection address) Some people arent smart enough to figure that out even being walked through it.


Giveing up on something before you actualy finish it isnt saying much for the company neither is just saying oops were shutting down bye.

This is bad marketing.

You think 3000 people cant make a diffrence?
Google Shadowbane 99.9% of them say something bad about both UBI and WolfPack.
Not counting the countless people online reading this stuff.

Try looking at the big picture. These 3000 or so people are gamers = friends with other gamers outside the game = there friends the first 3000 dont know = one massive gameing comunity getting a realy bad review.


(Hey Ubi and woldpack just up and shut down a game we had payed for for a 2 year frame without giveing us any information of someone possably takeing it over.)

This leads those people who didnt play shadowbane to thinking well im not going to buy anything of theres thats online based again there going to take my money and close the game down on me at a moments notice.


Take it in and think about it. Is this effective marketing?

I like many others here are extremely sad that this game was just dropped like a bad habit. For those of us who played this game damn near religiously would have absolutely no problem with a pay to play i personally had 3 accts for years that i paid for and had no issues with it. I can understand the decision to pull the plug on a non money making game.... Having said that i dont feel that Ubisoft tried particularly hard to make it into a money maker...Hundreds if not thousands of player would flock back to this game the day it could possibly be re released...If you arent prepared to risk it then give it to a company who will.. Unless you played the game you will never fully comprehend just how one of a kind this game was... I personally tried WoW once the shadowbane servers went down(i cancelled my subscription less then 4 hours later)I am not suggesting that Shadowbane was perfect but it is by far the best MMORPG that has ever been on the market nothing needs to be changed just end the ongoing sufferings of the ex-shadowbaners and put the lights back in the servers and i can personally garentee you will have one costumer....which is more money that you were making anyway... Until then none of the Ubisoft games that come out will ever be in my house you are losing more money from the EXTREMELY irratated SB community than you could possibly imagine... Because though we are computer nerds some of us do have friends(amazing i know) and how do you think they feel knowing how fast they pulled the plug on such a beloved game? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

honestly I wish someone from the company, mods dont count, but someone who worked corporate would read these theres over 5000 people that want this game back and even if ubi were to make an announcement they would reprogram the game to make it up to date with todays market so many people would praise ubi and ever preorder a new release of the game.

Its quite sad that its business executives making the choices here and not willing to take a gamble on a game that was very viable and some of its member played to their dying days. No joke if the old boards were up you could of seen the giant R.I.P. for some of our former friends who played.

Hello!

Ive been busy with school for a couple of years. But now when I started working I sometimes got more free time, and therefor I began a search for something to do with my sparetime.

I remembered a game I tried long ago. I belive it still was in the beta testing phase when I did. The name was ShadowBane, and Ive now updated myself on the sad story of the game.

My reason for bringing this up is simply to share my love for that game concept, and hopes of maybe bringing it back to developing/reworking?


Ive always liked the idea of playing with my allies, friends and new people together against my enemies and foes to conquer a world. The ShadowBane concept was great in that way. Leveling your character was fun, sometimes frustrating, but then again you got a chance to start over here and then which made it possible to improve and therefore even more fun!
When I first tried the game I though it was a simple normal mmorpg game. But when I realised you formed alliances, build great cities and conqured the world, my eyes started shimmering! I've always played online text based games with that concept, such as Utopia. But to get that into a 3d world? I was living my dream!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKgTDJjIuts&hd=1

I belive that it could become a GREAT success if you gave it some time, and proper marketing. You could even start from scratch!
Grafics isn't the most important part of the game. It's what you're able to do inside the game. As long as I can personalize my character in a way I would like to play, and then wage war to take over the world while building up my own army and cities, I would be more happy than ever!

I promise that there's a big target group that would love to see this game!

Wow, I can't believe I still remember my login and password, doesn't surprise me as I loved playing this game. Shadowbane was without question the best ever PvP game. I loved to PK and even enjoyed to be PK'ed as the challenge was everything. There is nothing like roaming around late at night and coming up on a group out farming. Having two to five accounts running and attacking with two of your builds and taking out the whole macro and cleaning them of all of the loot! Only to laugh and figure it was a macro group with one or two live at their keyboards! Killing them first, then hitting all of the afk'ers. Was a giant rush, because you never knew who was going to wake up or get back to their character. Only to get a ton of hate tells later and only to laugh it all off. WAS WITHOUT QUESTION THE BEST MMORG! Still I feel the S/B itch. The funny thing is I played S/B from beginning to end and quit when it became free.

I am and will always be VODKA! As I loved playing on vodka redbulls.... so many guilds so many roles. My favorite was the run with MoM! Ministry and Masquers. Good-bye to all I have played with and all that I have had such a good time hanging out with online. It was a blast....

I loved SB

Best PVP MMO ever

Simply put the world was controlled by players.
A concept the WoW clones/corp game consultants dont understand...the wide open sandbox
It was completely machiavellian in its player run politics and alliances. So mch so that it was the subject of countless univercity studies.

Sadly UBI has gave up on a game/concept that could be profitable and give a steady revenue stream. SB players are seriously loyal. And so what if its a niche...its a steady income niche.
Example of another game is aces high. They have some of the oldest long running accounts in mmo's. A niche that slaps down a cool profit every month

UBI please release the source...make a deal with SBEMU, or Remake the game and take all of darkfall, rift, warhammer, all of age of conan, and a % of WoW players and their monthly fees.

yer sittin on a gold mine ya fools

There's an emulator out right now which illegally used SQL injections and recordings to get the code from UbiSofts client. They have made a vanilla version of the game, but inner turmoil seems to keep the project from ever really going anywhere. There's also a few more SB emulators out there that haven't gone public.
