Asheron's Army

Not an emulator. Not a spiritual successor. We want our games back or we want to know why! #SaveAC

#BoycottWB

moonlight-boycott2

Warner Brothers has treated loyal players of the Asheron’s Call games badly. After almost 20 years, they shut down the games with no explanation, did not deliver the long promised player-run servers, deleted the social media pages and forums which almost destroyed the community, and have not responded to numerous requests for more information on plans (if any) for the games or if they were available for purchase or licensing.

This is not how you treat people who support your games, movies, TV shows and other products. Since they refuse to respond to the community, it is time for the community to send a message by boycotting those products.

Please share your frustration on social media and tell them they have lost you as a customer for their products.

This week, Warner Bros. announced Middle-Earth: Shadow of War (sequel to Shadow of Mordor). Let them know that because of their treatment of the AC community you will NOT be purchasing this game.

From now on, every time a new WB product is announced, let them know you will not be purchasing it and why. It’s not enough to tell other people in the community how you feel, let everyone know, especially the executives at WB who have ignored our concerns.

Daily Quest: Fan Powered

turbine_powered-by-our-fans

Visit Turbine’s Facebook page and message and comment asking what is happening with Asheron’s Call and Asheron’s Call 2 and why they have abandoned the fans that “powered them” for all of those years.

https://www.facebook.com/turbinegames/

Example Comment:

After almost two decades of playing the Asheron’s Call games I can’t understand how you and Warner Brothers can treat your customers like this. Can someone please give us some information about why the games were shutdown and when or if they are being sold to someone else if you are not going to do anything with them? Thank you.

Daily Quest: Asheron Calls

servitor2

Today’s quest is to call Time Warner Inc. (owner of Warner Bros. and Turbine) and explain that the games Asheron’s Call and Asheron’s Call 2 were shut down recently and ask when they will release information on if they are coming back or being sold to someone else.

 
Time Warner Inc.
212-484-8000
  1. Ask for complaint department.
  2. You will likely get sent to an answering service.
  3. Leave a message (example below if you need one).
Example message:
“I am a long-time player of the games Asheron’s Call and Asheron’s Call 2 developed by your subsidiaries Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and Turbine, Inc. The games were shut down on January 31st, 2017. No explanation was given for the shut down and no information has been released since then regarding their future. Thousands of people have played these games for close to two decades and are very upset about how this situation was handled. We watch your movies and TV shows and buy your products. Please take the time to let us know if you plan to revive these games or sell them to someone else as currently no information has been released and people are getting frustrated and angry. Thank you.”
