Sony Online Entertainment is unfairly closing down EQOA, considered as home to many console MMO gamers. SOE needs to keep open lines of communication with its player base, Loyal customers who paid $15 per month for 9 years. Simply shutting off all access to a game that many agree is the "best game of all time" not only alienates a class of gamer that does not conform to PC gamer Lifestyle, but sends a clear message to all of SOE's loyal customers: Customer Loyalty is not rewarded.

Please sign this Petition and help to send a message to John Smedley, President of SOE, that we, the community of EQOA, Strongly disagree with the sunset of EQOA. Please leave us 1 server, Castle Lightwolf. We ask for nothing more than what you have given the community of EQ Mac. Thank you.

      I am incredibly proud to announce the goal of 500 signatures on the petition to save EQOA. Thank you to everyone for participating in this. It's really warming to see the love for this precious world continue endlessly, regardless of the fact that there aren't any running servers at the moment. I am working on a special video to present to SOE, to let them know that we are still here, missing a piece of our lives, and that a company that creates a world and a community, has a responsibility to that community to help keep it together. More on this soon.

      Perhaps enough signatures down the road will convince SOE to bring EQOA back as a classic on the playstation network for the PS3 or a future console. Dont give up.

    5. John Smedley has tweeted back that EQOA will not be saved.

      This is quite saddening. I want to thank everyone for showing the Love for EQOA. Please feel free to continue to sign the petition long after the closure, if perhaps to send an even bigger message to the powers that be just how many lives EQOA has touched. I must Add, this Isn't the end, but the beginning of a change. Please, keep the signatures coming.

      I played eqoa for 7 years off and on to see sony run out of game discs and just pull the plug on the game without even making an attept to convert to pc or ps3/ps4 and simply pull the plug is unfair to the community that played and loved the game. if they can ssave eq, eqmac they could have saved this game.... an i for 1 would love to run around in tunaria again.
