Gamers who have been through the lifecycle of an online MMO will understand as will anybody who dedicated time to social networks that shutdown and such.
74 yr old guy’s been playing this game since its inception 17 years ago and now the game’s servers are shutting down. I’ve been through a few life-cycles – right now, Vine is about to shut down and I put a lot of effort and time into it and the people there.
Always a sad moment as there’s uniquenesses to each thing but more importantly, the people you meet in these places are partially defined _by_ the places you meet them, so even if you see them elsewhere online or in real life, it’s not quite the same.
Such is how it goes.
