    Does anyone have a strong argument to keep the servers up?
    Triad has been keeping the lights on but he is leaving the country, if we want them up we need to find an alternate arrangement.

    I'll be the first to do whatever I can to keep the game alive, but I can't find a reason to justify keeping the servers up. For the small amount of play that might still happen people can just host.

    If there isn't strong opposition they will go down at the end of August

    No, I don't see a reason. If the PUG scene were to ever come back, we'd need to bring back at least one server. But for now it's just wasting money.

    RIP Sweet Prince. We had a good run.

    Just want to give a thanks to everyone who contributed and helped along the way. Legions holds a very special place in my heart and has lead to a lot of great friendships.

    I'll 100% be there to say good night.

    Sucks to hear this. Legions has always been #1. Life has just been...well life, so I haven't been able to play. I'll also be in Mexico for a friends wedding from the 24-31, so I won't be able to make that date.

    Really sad. Does this mean closing everything all together (downloads, site etc)? Or will people still be able to host there own servers? Wish I could do more but I don't know how...

    Those are just the dedicated servers hosting the open matches right now. Anyone can still host, which is exactly why I think it makes sense to not continue to pay for them every month. Even if there continues to be small pickups or a few people interested in playing on Saturdays, we can just join a player hosted server.

    Only hotswap game servers are being closed, Triad was supporting those.

    Forums, website, patch and master servers are hosted by GReaper:
    TS3 and empire game servers are hosted by me and will remain up as long as I have the space.
