As everyone knows, or should know by now, EGS has a life-cycle. When a major release comes out there is major interest in the game. After a few months all the servers begin to lose players as interest in the game dies off. Every day we have fewer and fewer players, this life cycle has existed since 6.x.
I’ve decided to shutdown the server for now. It will shut down on 9/4/2018. If 9.x looks interesting enough (and some MP sync issues have been fixed) I’ll bring the server back.
