iFElse has the sad last moments of Asheron’s Call 2 online, summarized by a loss of connection to the server. The game warned players, “this world will be shutting down in 2 minutes. Please log out” before they pulled the plug. On their website, they write:
Empyrean magic has once again fled this world. The battle for Dereth continues on a different plane now. As his final act in this realm, Asheron sealed every portal to contain the expanding horde and protect what is left of the races who called Dereth home.
As of December 30, 2005 the AC2 service is no longer available. Turbine and the AC2 development team would like to express our thanks to the many players who’ve been part of Asheron’s Call 2 over the years. We hope you’ve had as much fun playing the game as we did creating it for you.
It’s never easy to say goodbye to a place you’ve called home, but we hope to see all of you in Turbine’s other worlds.
