Today's news of Dawngate's pending closure came as a heartbreaking surprise to the team here at MOBA-Champion. Words cannot really describe how we're all feeling right now. The folks at Waystone gave us an incredibly well-crafted, addicting and truly beautiful game that has commandeered our lives for the last year and a half. Saying good-bye is not going to be easy.

Special thanks to GoodOldMalk, Manawind, WillardThePig, BabyCat, Twerp78, TheBlueMuzzy, Lamentz, Bamberoo, DistractedElf, Spinaldash, Braedy, theKez, Tulce, MoratPG, the lurkers, the guide writers, the pro teams and countless more who contributed to Dawngate and MOBA-Champion in a positive way.

And of course, thank you so much to the entire Waystone Games team. It has been an incredible journey. We've known since the beginning that this game was truly special, and we've wanted nothing but success for this amazing project. As it comes to an end, we can only hope that you all land on your feet.

As a final token of our appreciation to our amazing community, we've pushed a final update to Dawnscout.

God Bless and welcome to the Champion club.

I am so sad too Gatsby.  Such a better community than League's on the whole.  Join the steamgroup if you can.

I mean hey, there are three things I expect the producer to try to work on at this point.  All of them out of our hands.
1.  Kickstarter Dawngate shirts and hats
2.  Kickstarter for finishing the chronicles.
3.  Least likely but most desirable, kickstarter the code so it can be open source and someone can put up a server.  Then John can be the new lead programmer in his spare time.

I used to play Dota 1, decided to skip LoL, but joined the DG community ever since the beta came out. I consider myself fortunate to be part of this experience. As a player, I always tried my best to be friendly to newcomers. If Waystone has made this hard decision, then I see little chance of a course reversal. Perhaps they should've done more marketing. In any event, best wishes to the community

I really hope some of you keep up with the podcast and turn it into something else. I really enjoy all of your input and you play off each other very well (especially when you troll the hell out of everyone).

Yeah if you guys talk about League or something I would probably still watch.  Especially if you were bitter about how dumb the game is compared to DG like I am.  :)

Awww, now I'm crying you jerk. It's harder to type on a wet keyboard.

Seriously though, thank you so much for all of the work you all have done to give math nerds like me something to do while they were in queue. This site is a gem, and you should all be DAMN proud of the work you've put into it. I always said I was going to make it back to champion tier. This . . . really touched me. Thanks.

I signed the petition on day 1, but I would say the chances of EA reversing their decision at this point is practically non-existent since suits hate losing face and the best guy to facilitate the process of that (Paradoxiq) has already left Waystone.
