A mere 3 months after the retail release of Pirates of the Burning Sea, some of the servers that house the universe are shutting down. 7 out of 11 total drives that hold the burning seas will walk the plank so that players can experience a "higher density" when playing.
So for folks who are a purveyor of the burning seas, this should make them a little more burningery and hopefully it doesn't signal an eventual collapse. It would be one of the bigger implosions in MMO history so we can't say we're opposed as we love the fireworks of a good epic failure. But uh… good luck to them.
