Listening To DFO Players Expressing Their Dissatisfaction At The Game’s Closing Is LIke…

Listening to DFO players expressing their dissatisfaction at the game’s impending closure is like listening to conservatives trying to argue their beliefs (I know some of my non-commenting viewers are going to HATE me for using this comparison :P). In other words, it’s terrible. I was going through the comments on the official DFO Facebook page today and came across COUNTLESS that I either made me laugh to death or incredibly puzzled at what the heck the comment poster had its his/her brain. But I’d like to highlight one. Not necessarily because it was the worst one, but because I’m in a rush and just picked one to make my thoughts known on.

Why can’t you guys be honest you’re closing this game for the same reason you closed Kart Rider, and Poptag. Lack of revenue. Nexon America is all about money you guys should be ashamed of yourselves I will not be playing any games from nexon America any long you guys are greedy as the Nation you’re in. I will not recommend this company to anyone else either have a good day.

WELL OBVIOUSLY THAT’S WHY NEXON IS CLOSING THE GAME. Although there are many reasons why a publisher would close one of their games, the reason for the closure of DFO is obvious. It didn’t have the PLAYERBASE to generate enough REVENUE to keep it ALIVE. I don’t recall Nexon ever denying this for their games. They said that both PopTag and Kart Rider lacked the expected base of players among the reasons for their closures.

The fact is that if a game is not making enough money to meet that standards of the publisher then it’s going to be shut down. It’s not about greed, it’s about business.

  1. I hate people (who most of the time happen to be teens) hating on companies and others like Youtubers for doing something for money… Well duh wouldn’t you make descisions based on money if you were in charge? If you had a lemonade stand and it would cost you 5 dollars to get the lemons and 3 dollars to let u place ur stand on ur neighbours lawn…. And you would only have 1 customer that happens to be a 5 year ols boy. He loves your lemonade but wud that be worth the time and money you spend on it? You need to stand there all day hoping for the kid to show up, and even when he does he only buys 1 lemonade juice, not enough to cover your expenses and time… Ofcourse you would stop doong what you are doing because it doesn’t make sense to continue…

    • That’s a good scenario. You’re so good at thinking up those LOL.

      And another thing is that the fact that Nexon had DFO remaining up for so long shows that they had some compassion. Ask Orange, I’ve been anticipating since late 2011 that DFO would close. From then I realized it wasn’t generating the revenue Nexon wanted it to. The game has lasted nearly 2 years after I thought it would based on what I was seeing when I logged on as well as how many events were being held to try to get people to try it out.

  2. LOL WTH! This kid is a loser. ._.;
