I don't think a game ever dies. For a good examples of what happens to a online game look at games like Gunbound.

It suffers much much more before it ever gets close to the coming of age.

The game is not dead. It is at the stage of income consolidation. As Wilson said some time ago, to prosper financially game needs 10,000 paying customers. Over the past few months, there has been a selection of these clients. GGG tested how a bad and malfunctioning expansion could be released, to simultaneously maintain the number of 10,000 customers and ensure that only the most dedicated and regularly paying customers remain at the game.

Looking at the statistics from Steamcharts and the appearance of the PoE forum - it succeeded. Even a poor and buggy league still has an average of 16,000 players and in the forum this game is criticized only by those players who no longer play it. The rest is happy and pays :)

Of course it is. Anything else would be preposterous. Stone cold daed. No one is playing. No one will ever be playing.

Might aswell just do a mobile version.

Me too!

But get your facts straight; "Game is daed" threads are never about reality. Even though this thread is ironic (I hope), dead-threads are often about:

"I don't particulary like this league/the state of the game, and everyone feels the same way as I do, hence; the game must be dead"
