Mythosbusters

And so the great Flagship saga/farce continues. The long-running Mythos beta closed down suddenly on Friday, with no word of when it'll return, in either beta or release form. Boo.

Whichever lost souls are still haunting Flagship's corridors attempted to make light of what's officially and optimistically being termed "a hiatus":

We, the ancient elders of Uld are issuing this warning to all citizens and travelers. Hurry! The great darkness that once plagued Uld is returning. Everyone is ordered to close down their shops and prepare. We predict the when night is at its peak the darkness will arrive. The ancient elders of Uld will be leaving immediately in order to preserve the lore of this wonderful world. Citizens please prepare thyself and know that the elders will be back from their travels some day.

Which is the roleplaying way of saying "Shit! The jig's up!" Will the free-to-play MMO Diablolike ever return? I hope so. While it veered a little too close to genre stereotypes in its tone and mechanics, it was a fun old time - and I'm very keen to know whether free-to-play can work in the US/Europe.
