    Default Soul of the Ultimate Nation Shut Down ; (

    One of my Favorite mmorpg shut down ;(


    Dear S.U.N players,


    We sincerely regret to inform you that we will be bringing Webzen.comís service of Soul of the Ultimate Nation to an end.

    In October 2009, Webzen.com was proud to release one of Webzenís unique and popular MMORPG, Soul of the Ultimate Nation (S.U.N) to the globe. Over the last three years, our team has been working hard to build a strong community through new content updates, service fixes, and events.

    Sadly, Soul of the Ultimate Nation has not attracted enough player interest to properly service the game. We went through many milestones and obstacles before we came to this very difficult decision.

    We understand that many of you will be disappointed by this news. We hope that the game represents some of your greatest gaming memories. You have made new friends, created awesome characters, picked up some epic loot, and recorded some unforgettable victories. We, too, have loved working on this game, and learned a lot throughout the service period.

    A ramp-down of the game will begin on 00:00 June 5, 2013 GST, with the closing of the cash shop. Full service will discontinue on July 4, 2013.

    We will be offering a very special treatment to make the transition to your next adventure as seamless as possible. We will be compensating S.U.N players for the purchase of any cash items within the past three months, and will offer you a choice between 3 Gaming Portals including Webzen.com, gPotato.eu, and gPotato.com to start on a new adventure. Once your choice is made, you will receive your compensation based on the currency value of the chosen Portal. We hope you will continue to be a part of the Webzen/gPotato family. More detailed information on compensation will be delivered to you on June 19, 2013.

    Working on S.U.N over these last three years has been an honor, and we thank all of you for joining us on this exciting journey.



    Thank you.
    S.U.N Support Team

    My friend has a poster for this game on his wall. He never played it nor does he remember where he got the poster. Chances are he never will now.

    Sad to see it shut down. I loved it throughout my times playing in all the many betas in all the markets.
    Yet again a great game gone.
    I had more fun in the game while in foreign betas, it was more of a challenge to me, I spent endless ways learning what the hell was going on because of the language barriers, which made it all the more special.
    Once the barrier was dropped and the game hit the markets for real, I'd lost the challenge I enjoyed and so went my urges to play on.
    A great game gone, great many people had good times playing it.
    Thanks to the Devs out there! Great job! Well done!

    A couple of years back, me and a friend had played this together side by side. Always partied together and logged off/logged on at the same time. We were a 2 man/woman team and got pretty far in the game through the help of friendly people.
    Hands down, I've got to tell you, was one of the best MMORPG experiences I've had.
    Sad to see this go, so long S.U.N! You were great.

    Compared to most MMORPGs this game was certainly in the top 20%, so I'm pretty surprised that it is getting shut down. Well okay, not really surprised that it shut down, but more surprised how other MMORPGs that are much worse didn't shut down yet.

    The game was good at the beginning , I remembered I had to travel to my destination and that was fun (not that town dungeon portal crap) we travel with groups and even kill mobs in groups for exp, what kill this game was player farming which lead to alot of rage quitting, I really love this game and miss the 5 hrs dungeon party. So, town dungeon portal, which led to people kicking you faster and less people on the maps, and player farming which losing items you spent 10hrs getting.

    i certainly hope it doesn't close. I read the mmohut review for this and I feel it is a very interesting RvR PvP proposition. I think i havent tried it yet because i think the open pvp might be flag-based but.. im not sure. But it does look good and the pvp mechanics look capable.
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.
