Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) recently announced a new multi-year partnership with ProSiebenSat.1 Games Group to license eight of its online games in Europe, including DC Universe™ Online, EverQuest® II, Star Wars®: Clone Wars Adventures™, Free Realms®, Magic: The Gathering – Tactics®, Pox Nora®, the upcoming PlanetSide® 2, and the next installment of the EverQuest® franchise.
This new partnership will enhance players’ gaming experiences by attracting new audiences into our online worlds (more players = more fun!), plus will deliver additional dedicated Community and Marketing support, and resources for providing an even more localized experience.
What this means for players is cutting of the communities from each other. Many euro players play on the us servers and vice versa to be able to connect with family and friends. We even have member of our armed forces who play to to connect with friendds and family at home, this change will end that. Not to mention ProSiebens reputation is horrid rampent with privacy violations and destroying the games we love. PLEASE stand together show SOE we do NOT want this change and it will bring the end of the games.
