It is a sad day indeed for all pirates everywhere. However, this pirate is still hopeful that another company would come, perhaps buy our beloved game, reinvest in fixing it and making it better. I know that was the case that happened with another Pirate game (Burning Seas).

I will make the most of this last month with my friends and guildsmate. I still have 2 more pirates close to noto 50. It's the friendships that I've made through the years that has made this a wonderful experience for me. That being said, I welcome my forum friends to join me in celebrating this grand adventure to the very last minute

It's sad to see POTCO and Toontown Online closing. I'll miss the games dearly, but neither of them ever had the attention by Disney they deserved. Unlimited potential wasted, but that doesn't change the fact that I have great memories of both.

They finally got their Infinity. They want all the kids who played their online games to now buy Infinity. They don't want their developers to waste any of their precious time with games that are no longer profitable let alone deal with other issues.

It's quite sad to see the only MMORPG from Disney I play be gone, POTCO. It is also sad to see TT and PH go as well. I find it funny that only after two days since Disney Infinity is released they decide to close 3/4 of their MMORPG's...

I'm not the least bit surprised. The way they wrote that Blog about why they were reducing the oceans to 15 was a red flag that most if not all did not find it bone chilling. The words, ' Moving Forward ' should have made that quite clear that it was something their boss intended on doing once Infinity debut. Yet, players wanted to believe that the game would still be around since there were two more Pirate films to come. Now ye know that their boss would rather those movie fans, especially the little ones, to buy a toy box set instead with those films.

I'd like to think they have to do this so they can bring back a better online version of Pirates, Toontown, and Pixie Hollow. Closing them now ends all existing Terms and Conditions. But, I'm no fool. It's over folks plain and simple.

They're closing Pirates, Toon Town and Pixie Hollow to make room for CLUB BLOODY PENGUIN!?

... I hope Club Penguin goes down. Maybe not now, but sometime down the road. What makes it any better than these games?

I'm sorry if I sound bitter, but...

... It's deja vu all over again.

Club Penguin: Never even made by Disney and they are making mobile apps for it.

Disney Infinity: Out for one day and they then throw everyone else under the bus.
