Sucks. But then, that's the problem with these new MMO developers trying to make a game to compete in the same market as established IPs like World of Warcraft. Yeah, WoW was an unpolished piece of garbage when it released (of course, now it's a polished turd, but that's just my opinion), but then, that was expected of ALL MMOs at that time. That crap doesn't fly anymore and yet, we keep seeing the wheel continually being reinvented out of stone.
The game had its issues but with a group of friends and a night free of hackers, it was a blast. So much potential down the drain.
I know nothing about this game, but how can they get away with shutting down their servers not even 3 months after the release? Seems to me they could at least scale back their servers to keep the current players going.
The company went nearly bankrupt and last month went into Administration. Without a new investor the assets will be liquidated.

DICE needs to make a comical boxing glove attached to a spring punch the player in the face 40% of the time they get into a helicopter or jet.
Not even 3 months in. I've heard the gameplay was just deplorable, probably didn't help it compete against big-names in the market. If EPIC acquired it, I'd say they would begin reworking of it pretty quickly to give it a chance to compete.
As for the private server: http://actiondistrict.com/
I think it's the one being run by some of the devs who wanted to help keep the game alive even if the company went out. Or maybe not.
