    Exclamation WoG.com is closing

    Dear users,

    For quite some time already, activity on WoG.com has been minimal, and the English WoG-forums have also seen a steady decrease in activity. As much as it saddens us, the moderator team does not see this trend changing, especially with the uncertain future of the Gothic franchise. The administrators of World Of Players have been going through sites with little or no activity with the intent to archive some of those sites, and close their forums. It did not come as a surprise to us moderators that the English World of Gothic was on this list. It also did not take us a long time to reach a consensus on the fact that when the only way to "save" WoG-eng would be increased activity not only on the forums, but especially on the website, there really is no realistic way to do this.

    I know many members of the English community have foreseen this coming, and that it as such won't come as a surprise to you. Others might have hoped for a resurrection or renaissance of the community (and the franchise), but those hopes were in vain. It's certainly with no small amount of sadness that we announce that WoG-eng will very soon come to its end; it is only a matter of days until the site will be archived, and the forum will remain open for a short while longer (until May, or so). After that, the forum will be closed.

    Both the website and the forum discussions will still be available for reading, however there will be no new activity on them. The few english users that are active on the English World of Gothic forums can still communicate in Off-Topic English forums around the World of Players network (for example Pirate's Pawned Pegleg Pub in the World of Risen area) and for related Gothic Discussions, the German team has kindly stated that we are more than welcome to open english threads on that side.

    Despite its steady decline in the past few years, there was a time when WoG-eng was a welcoming, vibrant and friendly gathering place for friends of this awesome RPG series. It was never a huge community, but in some way perhaps that was part of its strength and attraction; it was large enough for rich discussion, but still small enough for everyone to "know" everyone else. People have connected to other people and, in some cases, forged bonds of friendship that extent beyond the forum, and I'm sure many of us who've been here for years have fond memories of the forums. But all things come to an end. And this is the end of WoG-eng as we know it. Thank you for these years and for the fun times.

    We encourage discussion of this decision, but wish to remind everyone to remain civil even if you feel angry or disappointed. So take this chance to decide together if you want there to be a future for the community after WoG-eng, and if so, in what form and where. It truly is entirely up to you whether the community disperses altogether, or continues to exist in any form.

    Yes, I know how it looks so close to 1st of April. We actually delayed this announcement (scheduled to go yesterday) because of this.

    Sorry to dismiss that possibility.

    the English side of the WoG is discontinued for lack of supporters. Like the other sites she goes to archive, so get the status "read only".

    Haven't logged in here for quite some time now, checking the news though from time to time. The last news of closing this place brings out some memories. There were great times here, met some wonderful folks and we all love the G. It was indeed a welcoming and pleasant community. It shall be missed.

    I'd like to thank the mods and news posters for all their work and for putting up with us nameless heroes.

    I sadly have to agree that until new Gothic arrives there won't be much activity here cause last game was in 2006 and most people who were interested in playing it have done so already and there isn't much more left to discuss.

    Just asking though, if WoG shuts down will we still be able to access other parts of the site except forum or? I'm sorry, I'm not very familiar with that sort of stuff, this is the first site I regularly visit that will shut down.

    I am so sorry to hear this... Even if I never posted on this forum (just 2-3 posts these days, this is all my activity here), but I have been reading it since 2007 or so, even from the first day I have installed Gothic II and entered in this amazing and beautiful World of Gothic. On this forum I have found lots and lots of quests explained, hints and all kind of friendly advices.
    Yes, I know I started with the left foot (playing Gothic II as the first game of this amazing series), but soon after I finished Gothic II, I played Gothic I and after that I replayed Gothic II (NOTR this time) and Gothic III, and I did this many many times.
    The series was simply amazing as well as the forum and I will come here from time to time, to read some good old stories (with the soundtrack of the game playing in the background) and to remember those unique feelings that only real Gothic players have experienced.

    Let's hope for a HD version of the Gothic I and II (NOTR) in the future... I am sure that such event will definitely revive World of Gothic.

    Sad news indeed. This forum was a lot of fun a long time ago. But as PB are no longer doing Gothics, it has slowly fallen to less and less visits.
    Btw weren't PB supposed to have the rights to the Gothic 5 or something?

    Anyway, I shall keep WOG.com with fond feelings.

    That's the thing. It won't. WoG-eng will die. Possible new installments of the series won't revive this site and this forum. This is not a temporary closedown, this news means that WoG.com will be archived and no longer updated, and the forums will be closed so that only read access is possible.

    Someone could make a group on Facebook called "Wog-eng", and old members could post there... The problem is, here you could be partially anonymous but on Facebook...

    Anyway. This forum helped me meet a lot of people, some of whom I chose to form really enjoyable relationships with. It was fun and frustrating and quite a part of my teenage years.

    Now, though, I can barely feel anything about it. I'm neither shocked nor surprised nor sad. Kind of how I feel about Gothic, actually. There's nothing I can contribute to this thread other than my personal impressions, or lack thereof.

    It was nice, no doubt about that, but it's like a faded, old dream I can't muster any care for.


    EDIT:

    On the other hand, I can start using German more actively on the local TES forums yay

    This is a sad day for the RPG genre but what can we do about it?

    Almost 5 years I've been here. I've never been really active because I don't like "cyber-friendships".

    Oh well, was expected. WoG was pretty much an integral part of my childhood, and probably had a huge influence on forming me as a human being. I'll miss it, and the people, but yeah let's move on.

    The real bitch is that it's being archived instead of deleted. Nobody should see what I posted here in the past!

    OT Rhetoric: being that this place becomes read-only and the fact that not all evidence is destroyed, does that mean that Calin technically won?

    So it's not an April's Fool joke? I didn't see this coming to be honest, sure many said that the forum was dying and such but I thought it was just an inaccurate observation. I actually do feel very sad, I spend countless hours in this place reading and writing, I learned things, I improved my English dramatically, I even shared a few minor experiences and also met some really interesting people, some of them still being in my daily life and I love them like siblings or more. I'm glad that all that has been written here will not simply vanish but it won't be the same.

    It was a fun ride.

    By seeing some of his maniacal posts I can say that he technically lost because he was for "bringing life and fun back to wog after getting rid of Faby"

    This is the end of an era.
    It's been a while since I posted here, but tbh I am not surprised the activity went down like it did.

    I like how Omid said Wog was part of his childhood, I strongly feel the same. Maybe not my childhood but my teenage years.

    I still remember the thrills of going through Old Camp looting to get enough ore to buy meself a pair of trousers and a sharp enough sword to finely slice the meat off a poor but tasty defenseless molerat. That's the time I discovered WOG. So for me, the feelings of playing and being on the forum are associated. Also Diccuric, Gothic2, NOTR and the wait for G3! So many good memories and good times!
    I spent so many hours, day after day, year after year here! It's the most familiar place on the internet. It's home ... oh, there you go. *teardropsdowncheek*

    I didn't think the forum will be closed. Even if the activity is close to little, keeping it open helps the flame inside our hearts stay alive. Bush anyways, I guess this had to come to an end. Let's drink to the good times we had, and the good times that await. Cheers!

    Certainly not! o-c took it upon himself and painstakingly deleted countless postings in hundreds of threads opened by that troll.

    I spent more than 7 years with this community and one of the best aspects was meeting and working with you guys. Particularly the staff was a pleasure to work with and I will remember all of you very fondly.

    But like a famous starship captain once said: All good things must come to an end!
