Default [Announcement] Lunia Global Free Server Service will be closed temporarily

Quote:
Hello, this is Kyung Hyun Son, PD Lunia Global Service.

Today, I am here to announce that Lunia Global Free Server Service will be closed for a while, until the time when we can support the game service with more funds and man power.


Lunia Global Free Server Service is non-profitable service by ALLM (developer of Lunia). Main objective of its service is to provide least gaming environment for global fans of the game who have been enjoyed the game for past 7 years. Because of characteristic of Online game, players can’t keep the game title for their collection as the way players do with PC game titles. A party who operates game service servers is essential. ALLM felt the responsibility as game developer of its original title and took a roll of game servers and service operator since Oct. 2012.


Since Lunia game service was operated securely so long over many different countries, we thought we can continue game service on our own. However, we have to face countless hacking attempts even after we have announced the game as non-profitable service. To respond to hacking attempts, ALLM had to have numerous number of maintenance hours to upgrade security level on all our game service servers with various game server patches. Despite to our efforts, hacking attempts have not been decreased over past year. As the result, the number of sudden game crashes is increased dramatically causing very unstable gaming environment. With all these, we have reached to the point where we need to evaluate current game service and think back whether our initial goal, “Giving pure joy of playing to our fans”, is in right path or not.


After having many internal discussions, we have concluded that current game service is just giving bad gaming experience to our fans and it should be closed down by the date of December 31st, 2013. Closing services are current game service with donation page. Official website (Lunia - Action Arcade RPG , Free to play game) and facebook (www.facebook.com/luniaglobal) are not included. Through these two gateways, we hope that we can keep in touch with our fans.


Some of our fans pointed out that current game service can be continued with the funds fans donated. However, it is not true. Current game service needs around 20,000 US dollars monthly and funds made by donation are taking about 1% of its operation fees. Portion took by donation seems to be very small. But then, we always thought that it holds even greater meaning to it. Every penny donated by our fan means “Support”, “Cheers” and “Hopes”. At this very moment announcing closure of its service, we believe it is not right to bury down your donations under the coast of its operation for past year. We decide to refund your donation with your request. (Detailed announcement will be made shortly after)


Although current game service will be closed, we will try hard to revive Lunia Global service once again after we secure enough funds and manpower.


All members of ALLM sincerely thank to all fans of Lunia for the loves and supports of our game for past years. And we are also extremely sorry that we could keep a promise we have made with you for just one year and come to closure of game service.


Wish your wellness from the bottom of hearts.

Thanks you all.

I told myself I wouldn't cry... (even though I haven't played it in a couple of years now)

This was the game that grabbed my attention and made me stop playing MapleStory and led me to meet a lot of awesome people! I'm glad I found out about it and got to play it with so many of you guys

I'm also crying inside. Even though I do not play anymore I feel sad that I will not be able to get online anytime and use my dainn .

Lunia's the only MMORPG game that kept my attention... I thought I would not care. I was wrong.

I'm gonna miss you guys.
Let's do some event for us mylunians/ggftw users, for old times sake!

$20k monthly? That´s interesting. I always thought that the costs would be much lower.

Kind of sad though. Lunia was one of the friendliest communities so far.

Pretty obvious it was going to happen with the constant stipends to all users.
You don't give away large amounts of money unless you intend to close the game down in the near future.

Someone did post that announcement here, huh . . .
Where am I supposed to meet Chibi now ? CHIBI, WHEREVER YOU ARE, THANKS FOR THOSE SCROLLS, REALLY ;A;

Lunia was such a wonderful experience for me, and it didn't even have a dramatic ending . It just slowly vanished . . . Got to make some friends through it, though most of them eventually vanished, as well or we gradually stopped talking to each other, but it was so much fun ;n;

FLY AWAY, FAR AWAY, LUNIA .

RIP, Also really suprised about the 20k monthly fee? I don't get how it can even cost that much unless they are randomly overpaying for some cloud service.

Paul pays $5,000 for the ggftw server every month. It's all about quality of service and ensuring a smooth experience for all.

I used to love this game to pieces, I can't believe it's shutting down now. Although I haven't played it for years, I still feel upset. The people I've met on this game still are good friends of mine .

Thank you all for making such a lovely community, and for making my Lunia experience the best.

Best game forever, unique. It was a part of me.
Everyone on this game was so sweet, felt excited just thinking about logging in and saying hi to everyone. So Sad.
Love you all. OurStory all hail.
