Goodbye, And Thank You From The GameSpy Team

It's been fun!


GameSpy, as we know it, began in 1999. Today, 14 years later, it has reached the end of the road. We had a good run, and we want to sincerely thank all of you for reading and joining in discussions with us. It's been fantastic.

Just to be clear, we're not being shut down because PC gaming isn't a big, important, and growing thing -- because it is. That's not even debatable. It's not even because the GameSpy staff did a bad job of talking about it. Hell, from where I'm sitting we did an awesome job, particularly in covering the technical quality of PC versions of cross-platform games in our Port Authority features, reality-checking the hype of about-to-be-released big games with our Questions & Concerns series, delving into the nuances of MMORPGs, strategy, MOBAs, and simulations in our columns, regularly checking up on free-to-play games in Free Agent, calling out Microsoft's neglect of PC gamers, mocking Ubisoft's claims of a day-and-date PC release of Assassin's Creed 3, breaking the news on SimCity's lack of save/reload, and of course our amazingly bizarre The War Z interview.

Why is this closure happening, then? It's a business thing, and like most business things it's not easy to explain or understand unless you spend all day crunching numbers and paying bills. Which I don't. So here's the simple version that even I can comprehend: Ziff Davis wants to run an efficient, focused company, and managing several different sites that all cover videogames isn't exactly the model of efficiency. Even though GameSpy had its own unique voice that was separate and distinct from those of our sister sites, and there has always been value in that, it's hard to argue with that logic. Even if it does totally suck.

The silver lining is that the value of all of the voices and opinions of our staff and writers won't just go away. We'll still be out there talking and writing about the great things happening in the world of PC gaming, both at IGN and other places around the internet, because it's what we love to do. It's why we wanted to work at GameSpy in the first place. We hope you'll keep reading and watching and talking about PC games with us.

Game Violations close his doors ...

Allgemein | 09.02.2013 - 13:34:42

Dear Community,

 

During the last months we had to deal with a huge number of false/fake bans and also with the possibility of faking PunkBuster-Screenshots.
Game-Violations has always been based on PunkBusters functionality. But at this point we are no longer willing to support PunkBuster, because it is simply not working anymore in any way.
Evenbalance is ignoring every single Bug/Error report and is not updating, rewriting or securing their code since years (the level of encryption used in PBUcon is ridiculous).
Since it is now becoming easy to ban innocent players because of the ignorance from Evenbalance we can no longer operate GV with a clear conscience. Some of those bugs we are not able to fix just by ourselves as those are deep inside the PunkBuster system itself.

It was a very hard decision to close our doors but it was the only possible conclusion.

We would like to thank you all for your great support over the last 9 years. We had a great time and made up some friendships that hopefully will last.
It was a pleasure for us to help some of you and we hope you won’t forget us that fast :)

One of my personal principles is “Don’t leave a battlefield in a mess” I will now provide some files you might need or want to have.


1. The GV ban lists (bans of the last 3 months) have been removed to be sure there are no fake bans in and all bans are not appealable anymore anyway.
2. A list of all removed bans. A copy of this list has been sent to all league admins to handle any suspensions.
