not that much, just means we cant expect a new version, unless our own version has more things to update like items and quests.

I dont think it will end for US version since it's a different company and as long as some players pay to keep the maintenance up.

Vector owns the Japanese Version of Wonderland Online. It seems their contract expired, and possibly because the original makers of the game aren't continually developing the game, Vector decided not to renew the contract, which means the Japanese Version will officially come to an end September 24, 2013.

IGG owns the US Version, and the 2 companies are completely unrelated, so there's no reason for concern. IGG still makes plenty of $$ from this game, and still have updates they intend to release in the future. I'm sure our version will be just fine.

Let's clear this up...

This will NOT change anything with the US version.

End of story.

Actually if you stop to think about it it will affect us. With no new updates over there means that IGG will actually have make all their own stuff instead of just translating it, so updates will take a lot longer to come out.

No, IGG is way behind anyways, the stuff they have over there is not released here at the US version, they still have plenty of stuff to give, considering their last update was literally just armor.

But do you know when the next update is coming out? for all we know they have no plans to ever update again

Its two different companies. IGG owns US version of wlo and the other company (vector was it?) owns Japanese Version of Wlo so how would it effect the US version?

The Japanese players have a lot of cool games that doesn't reach us here in the US and only released for them so i wouldn't be so sad about they lost wlo. Also, IGG is the one in charge of US wlo so as long as they are getting $$$$ from it they won't close it down.

Now I'm curious if IGG will come up with something new this time or will they just release minor updates like tweaked out events or patches that fix bugs.

Yes I know they are two different companies, but all IGG does is translate it into English. Nothing more to translate means that they have to actually do work to create parts of the game.

Let's not forget that the main server is China, not Japan. As long as the game is still running there, we shouldn't be having problems.

The Chinese Gamer had sold their rights to modify the game to the Japanese company, thus. China is not involved in any more updates involving the US version of WL.

Things to clarify to all of you, Chinese Gamer abandoned all that involves TWWL and began investing and working on Norn Saber, so they sold the entire game copyrights to the Japanese company in hope that they would start investing in it for them. The contract may of ended and all, but there is a reason why the Japanese company would not just go on with it. And that is pretty obvious that they are not getting enough money from it.

End of story.

That line made me think of a teddy bear on full army gear descending from the sky in a parachute lol

Back on topic: As mentioned above, IGG does translations but thing is, the english is still quite messed up and they didn't fix some conversations especially on the 1st few areas when you start. Still kinda blurred out if it will affect the us side but as i said, i don't play no more so just curious.

Well too bad i guess. I think we can still get a update. I mean like the japanese and chinese wlo is ahead of ours. Maybe we can get get Update and get what they currently have as a final update. And then we either keep playing without anything new and many people will quit or IGG make their own stuff and add to the game.

It would be nice to happen but I still think it's a small chance.However you are right if they won't update lots of people will quit so let say they are some chances to make updates too.I suppose we just have to wait and see what happens >.<.I want Eva's rb so bad 8D

Lemme just clarify a few things.

I've spoken with VIP Live Support prior to this. According to Vince, they are currently working on the next update package which they hope to announce by October. And as far as where the updates originate from, Taiwan are the original creators of the game and the source of all updates, which would essentially be wl.chinesegamer.net

Our Item Mall works quite differently than the Item Mall in the other versions. For example, if you would like to add Pet Food in other versions, you would buy an IM Pack to recieve 1 random Pet Food, then compound it with another Pet Food in the hopes of recieving the one you want. Unlike those versions, ours is designed to create profit, which is what has and will keep this game surviving better than all the rest.

You can also tell which IM items are originally "meant" to be sold in the Item Mall, and which are not. Some items have highly polished images, while others don't. It's pretty obvious IGG added things to our Item Mall that the other versions don't sell in theirs. Who can blame them? Fairy Spar & 26% Bomb Diamond, for example, are great sellers. Profit-wise, it makes complete sense. If the other versions did the same, they might not be closing their servers.

Either way, nothing lasts forever, so no sense in worrying over "what could happen." No one knows. Everyone was concerned about our version when the Thailand Version shut down their servers, yet our game is still alive 1 year later. And I'm sure it will be around for years to come.

(Btw. Our last update wasn't just equipment, it was also Sam & Victoria's Quests and the ability to Rebirth them.)

On a side note, if you read the Terms of Service, you'll know IGG isn't obligated to release updates or meet anyones expectations. Their only responsibility is to provide the game as it is. Which, in that respect, they're doing a great job, simply because the game they host is still here for everyone to play, while others really just can't say the same, so instead of worrying about it, Play it. Cuz I'm sure everyone who plays the Japanese Version, even the ones who will play til the day the servers shut down, are very disappointed that this is happening, and wish they could have just 1 more day. 1 more hour. 1 more minute with their characters and surroundings.
