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.
