I knew someone was going to post an emulator. Might as well be Garrot. =P

SB, IMO, had one of the best class systems ever, mainly due to the disciplines and weapon varieties.
However, I HATED the click to move concept. Lamest ever.

Shadowbane, in my opinion, was the BEST MMORPG hands down - with no comparison. Darkfall may come close, but Shadowbane was the first. Like George R. R. Martin's, "The Game of Thrones", Shadowbane allowed me to delve into the world of kings and thieves, politics and backstabbers, and even those Random Player Killer Guilds that would live life lawlessly - all roles I played at one point of time in my career in Shadowbane.

Hell, the only reason MMOs excite me (Like Darkfall) is that it resembles Shadowbane, with the intrigue, the politics and even the forumfall that actually means something. When Hyperion Falls, I will recall the forum trolls whining, and it'll be as great as it was in Shadowbane, chaulk another one to the dust.

Hopefully, as Darkfall continues, and the years pass, Stray Bullet Games/Wolfpack, will release another similar MMO - and the tide will revolve one more.

Until then, I will raise a mug of beer tonight ... to the memeories ... to the experiences ... but most of all, i'm not ashamed to admit, to a large part of my life.

it is about time, i am surprised it went as long as it did, especially when it went to free servers.

i liked shadowbanes concept but at the point it came out and as horrible as it was with all of its issues etc, there was just no fun in it for me. it brought a lot of good faces to kgb, so in that aspect it is worth it.

but overall like crimthan said, the thing that killed it for me most of all was the click and move, i hated that with a passion and its interface was all fucked for me, i couldn't get used to it.


i only played it at two seperate times first time a bout a month or two and the second to see if anything has changed and when it was pretty much still the same it was nothing i reflected back on.


the time i played i enjoyed myself but having kids with a game like sb is nearly impossible as i couldn't provide the time to a game like that

Shadowbane was bitter sweet for me. I left, never to return. It did however set the standard for what I was looking for in a game as far as City Building, Siege, and National Politics. Farewell Shadowbane.....

Nothing says more about the greatest of a game, than people who love the game despite HORRID bugs, exploits and even hackers.

Farewell Sb, you will be missed.

Goodbye Shadowbane.
You changed siege warfare for the best and that is about all you had.

Goodbye to the advertising hell you became.
