I'd like to share with our community the discord announcement:

[GM] Deja — Today at 6:13 PM
@everyone
Dear players.

We are very, very sorry to tell you that we are closing retRO.

The current circumstances are too much for us to handle and we do not want to have an uncomfortable feeling in our stomach with each passing day.

There is much we had planned for the server to make it a better home for everyone enjoying the classic version of the game.
Unfortunately it will not come to this anymore and it breaks our hearts.
We put so much time and effort into this project and if it was only for us to decide, we would have run the server for many more years.

We had a very long meeting yesterday, analysing and speculating about the situation. In the end we came to the conclusion that it would be best to us to take retRO down.

The risk of being sued by the company would existentially threaten the four of us in our lives and, to some extent, our profession. Whether the legal steps would be justified in the end plays a secondary role in this. Even if we were to win, we would still suffer considerable damage.

It pains us to no end to take the server away from you, our great and kind community! You also put so much time into leveling your characters, farming cards and gear, building guilds and organising parties and events.
You put so much trust in us, believing that this will be the one server to finally settle down. And now... Now we have to disappoint you all.

Sorry for all this and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for staying with us until the end! ❤️

The server will be taken down with immediate effect.

I wonder if it's just an overreaction by everyone or... even RMS will cease to exist anywhere else besides in our hearts.

The new generation is very timid. Very. If we had had such a generation 15 years ago, we would not have received a single private server at all.
As I understand it, they didn't receive any notification, just in case.
I wonder who will remain after the wave of servers self-destruction. I'm betting on Nova. I think they're tough guys)

Rest in peace my friend  /sob

And so the prophecy came true... I have to say I'm surprised at how well at it worked. Feels like everyone's tripping over themselves to prematurely kill their servers.

Just want to remind everyone in the midst of this panic that the only server they've actually gone after is Nova - which is not only one of the biggest servers but one of the biggest profiteers... and, you know, who registered themselves as a goddamn company and were claiming copyright while using Gravity's logo.
I bet Gravity are laughing their asses off right now... one lawsuit, they didn't have to interact with anyone else, and everyone is voluntarily folding. This is the best situation they could have ever hoped for, lmfao... jeez.  /swt

Absolutely. Servers are closed without donations and with 30 live people. Come to your senses, what are you afraid of? The maximum that hypothetical"judgment" will be able to decide is the same thing that you already do yourself - close your server. Respect yourself and your work
