Rumor of the week

Well it has been a week or so now since this posting - source of the rumor was comments and posts from readers of this blog. I was hoping to flush out if it was valid or not (hoping it was not). As of this time, it sounds like just heresay, so lets hope that there is nothing to it and that MSO will be around for a long time. 




Starting to hear some chatter that Metalstorm Online is going to be phased out and REPLACED by Metalstorm Aces.   Rumor is that there is a letter out there from Z2 stating this position.  Has anyone seen this letter?  

It might make sense - Aces is SOOOO friggin similar to MSO that I've often wondered why would Z2 make 2 games that are almost identical (although Aces is not as good in my opinion).  I am guessing that Aces requires less server costs and is easier to maintain & update than MSO.   

Anyway - I am hoping that this is a false rumor as I really do not like Aces enough to play it regularly and I definitely do not like it enough to invest the time to create a blog for it.

  1. U really hope this is a false rumor. I like MSO much better than MSA and I play it almost everyday.

  2. If the rumor is correct, I would like to say thank you to Z2 for the game. They will give my life back as I don't need to wake up 30 minutes early just to get the medals and blue coins and do it again 8 hours later. I no longer need to spend 2 hours per day playing it.

    In addition, thank you Tapjoy for the freeblue coins that allowed me to collect agi class planes, except the Spectre and Saratoga, without spending a single penny.

  3. This would be really sad. I'd probably stop playing MSO then. MSO is sooo much better than MSA!

  4. I expected this already at the international release of MSA back in June: http://metalstormforever.blogspot.ch/2013/06/version-52-new-missile-new-planes.html?showComment=1372320830798#c4532432866536982830

    Now, all improvements go into MSA and not MSO (e.g. 2vs2). I do not know if Z2 will shut down MSO but they might let it die (new planes, weapons, sceneries in MSA only until the last player has switched). In my opinion this is sad and disappointing as MSO is superior to MSA.

    My consequence: I also have switched but not to MSA but SGSR. Bye, bye Z2

  6. Why would Z2 phase out MSO when it has more players than MSA?
    Business wise it does not make any sense.

  7. The only good thing about MSA game is I got the free Warlord, after that I've deleted the stupid game.

  8. Online is way better than Aces, I hope they keep it.

  9. If Z2 is planning of phasing out MSO, why are they still offering planes of the week? If I'm a beginner and end up paying for a plane with my own money, then Z2 stops the game, I will sue them for sure.

  11. I sent a support ticket to Z2 and asked if the rumor of closure of MSO was true.

    Z2 replied that this is not true. They said they will continue to support MSO and will NOT be shutting it down.

    Also, they want to know where we have heard this (rumor) so they can "squash these rumors".

    1. Glad to hear it, I have spent lots of time in this game, it wouldn't make sense to phase it out.

  16. Hey Z2! Since you are not phasing MSO, then phase out MSA. After all, MSA sucks anyway, and you don't have the same number of subscribers as MSO. In addition, it cost more more when you have MSO and MSA running at the same time.

  17. Does anyone know the next plane release? I would appreciate it.
    Cheers

      on the other hand, what I meant before was the next group of planes for the next months, I know that the next planes are Nova, firefly, sparrow, respectively, but after these ones? Anyone?

      Thanks

  18. Hopefully the stiletto that hasn't been out for a while and that is my 1st choice for the next plane i buy 2nd would be the rath.

  19. Both Stiletto and Rath are good planes and I have them both. Both needs damage to make them even better,though. When I'm versing against these two, I'm almost comfident that I will win with my non-blue coin weapons and Warlord. If the Spectre comes out, this is a better choice. I'll wait for this plane. You have to arm the Stiletto and Rath with blue coin weapons to be very good.
    The Spectre is the one that gives me problem the most. I would like to own this plane so that I'll know its weakness.
    If Z2 releases a plane with the Warlord's stat but with better lock speed, this can compete with any plane out there (no blue coin weapons needed).
