Blue Mars PC Support Ending

The Blue Mars Blog announces that Avatar Reality is shifting their development effort on this virtual world to the mobile version, saying: "With our focus now clearly on mobile, updates to the PC version of the software will likely be restricted to bug fixes for the foreseeable future. With that in mind, we will no longer charge our current City Developers for the monthly city hosting service. The servers will remain online, city updates and uploads will continue, and shop and residence rentals will still function but technical support for the user client will no longer be offered." They also announce a restructuring resulting in the loss of many jobs, including that of CEO Jim Sink, who penned the update. Thanks Massively.

MORONS! You are dropping PC support in favor of mobile gaming? You developers are RETARDED. Mobile gaming is not going to stay popular. Most "mobile" gamers are casual gamers first of all, they aren't dedicated to gaming like PC or even console gamers are, and your customer base your trying please is not going to sink hundreds of dollars of money into their casual mobile gaming. Why not stay focused on the people (real gamers) who made you rich in the first place? This is what PC gamers are always seeing these days. Dev: F! the PC gamer, their too smart for us, once they realize how crappy our games are they won't buy them, but the mobile gamer? hahaha, the mobile "cough" gamer is an oxymoron, so lets make these mobile folks feel "leet" and only support them. Sure we will only get $10 a game instead of $50, but Im sure once mobile gamers see how dedicated we are to them (Lets not even think that maybe some of these mobile gamers where always PC gamers who you just raped in the butt) they will buy buy buy!"
