Shadowbane to be “reset”

We’re unsure as to how many people are actually playing this, but MMO Shadowbane’s about to be completely reset. From the game’s site:

“The Shadowbane Team decided that it would be best for the longevity of the game to reset all server and character data and start from scratch. By doing so, the game benefits in a variety of ways. First, we feel the community will be better served by being more consolidated and less fragmented. Second, resetting the game removes items that have accumulated over the years that have caused imbalances to the game. In addition, numerous updates and enhancements have been made to the Shadowbane service to improve the performance. Some of the changes were not as effective due to preexisting data and resetting the service will allow the servers to work under optimal conditions. Finally, this update also gives us a chance to address certain game issues.”

Shadowbane’s been running since 2003, so there are probably going to be some really, really happy people that have spent the last five years stomping around “Aerynth”. Watch and wince.
