Enb at release was quite possibly a couple of years ahead of it's time. It crash landed in a world obsessed with the Lord of the Rings films and the cancellation of star trek. It's appeal was niche and EA was not about to 'challenge everything'. Electronic Arts shut down the game in a timely fashion after a string of cash whoring in-game schemes. It's their loss of course as another company has now turned profitable with EA's old customers.
'The addition of Mythic to the EA family reflects our deep commitment to the online gaming market worldwide' says EA this month. I don't remember them asking the Enb community on alternatives to totally shutting down our game though. Legally they can do whatever they want to it and clearly they don't care about their community after getting their cash.
Pledge your support for an Enb revival. All we want is for EA to give us permission and support to play the game ourselves. Post on their forums get in touch with Enb community members. Let them know that Enb should be played ! ;)
