    They should've made it free to play before closing the studio. It's a fun game.

    At least when Epic shut down Paragon they released the assets for people to use in UE for free, and they refunded people.

    Free to play was just a temporary boost and it's back to shit numbers, 95 player peak in 24 hours. Played a bunch of games yesterday and had fun. It's all about verticality and if you're running on the ground, you're probably doing something wrong. There's a lot of emphasis on movement and every character has it's own style. One is sliding, other has a jetpack, assassin is swinging around like a Spider-Man, one can flash forward etc. It's skill based game, abilities aren't overpowered and you have to aim well while moving around or you can't do shit. It's suprisingly well optimized too, I get stable 150FPS on GTX 1050TI laptop. I'll play it as long as finding a game doesn't take too long. The good thing is that after finishing a match, the next one would start right away since all the players who just finished stay in queue. Kinda sad how it ended up.

    RIP. Felt like playing, couldn't log in. Why not just give the dead game to the people and allow private servers?

    Probably because the game was never made with private servers in mind and that would take someone with access to source code and some time to implement. Maybe someone, some day will decide to make a private server regardless.
    Because Lawbreakers was still a pretty unique game and it did various things right. Schadenfreude and joking about the failure is fun and all, but at some point it will become annoying when wanting to talk about it a bit more seriously.

    Some semblance of self-awareness in retrospect? Although he manages to get it exactly wrong in the end. I'm not sure not going Woke would have especially helped in this case, since the games themselves sucked and were "Me Too's", it might have even helped him gain some cheap attention. But it definitely would have helped an established franchise do a lot better e.g. last Battlefield, Gears of War and similar.

    Even if it wasn't "woke" it would have failed like 99% of other copy-cat projects of online-only games.
    Copying a game works great when it's offline: People want more of something that's good. e.g., Pathfinder: Kingmaker is good because people just wanted more of IE games. Copying online games is almost always a failure because there's no reason to quit playing your current game to go play that one.

    This feels like a retcon, I don't remember people talking about Lawbreakers being woke. It was mostly just generic (though reviewers said the game was mechanically solid). Personality-wise Cliffy B was just a spastic git more than anything.

    Yeah, wokeness in general wasn't much of a thing when Lawbreakers was announced or released, and the game basically billed itself as the Next Big Thing from Cliffy B.
