Please buy out Gpotato.

It really makes so much sense. AGE is soon to wipe them from the market anyways but they are ruining some great F2P games that we do not want to see disappear. Crying or Very sad

I know AGE could save those games and rake in the $.


Pinch me if i am dreaming but you could save our beloved Corum.

Should Gala-Net run into financial difficulties, and the licenses for the games that they currently publish become available, Aeria will consider purchasing them.

:O Get shot-online Very Happy

That game is really honestly great. Even though the current GM's *SUCK SUCK SUCK REALLY BAD* lots of people still love the game and it would attract a large number of fans

Level: M3 Whoever deleted my sig, pm me, thanks. I'm upset that no name was left to give my side of the story.

"Shot Online" is not technically a G-Pot port pubished game but a partner game smiler to what AGE is doing here. Yes that game is pretty dope. I always play it during Corum maintenance and hate sports games xD.


I have a bit of juice and we are talking about how we as core leaders of the US F2P community can make this a reality. Corum is our focus and I believe this can happen.

It actually looks like they are currently operating without a business license of any kind. AGE should make moves to take them down now.

Yes, please do. Please take the rights from ArchLord and RF Online as well. Codemasters is doing a horrible job, and there are rumors they are going to pull out from these games all together.

I wouldn't mind if AGE got ArchLord rights, but they will most likely not wipe the data since people purchased the game for like $30 dollars and then when game became free to play people bought cash coins. Not wiping would also mean brining all the duplicated money and items the game struggled with and all the bots/hackers.

I really don't think aeria will be able to buy archlord because the game is really big(perhaps more populated then any aeria game). So that's my thoughts.
