It’s been a while.
It’s been a while.
Wow. I’ve been here 8 years. 12/22/2008.
After a long 6 years, I’ve finally become the Featured Member for this week. Ever since I began Fantage I aspired to one day be the featured member.

First normal post in forever.
April 23rd to May 6th is the Fantage 2015 Prom. Currently there is voting for Prom King/Queen, 2 Limited Items Carts, and much more to come. I’ll update as more things in the event unfold.
Fantage is still here, and seemingly going as strong as ever. It’s crazy that I’ve been here 7 years now…I really should get a life. Nevertheless, it’s been a great time and I’ll be interested to see what comes next in fantage.
It’s been a rather disappointing Fantage Christmas with that tree, I now have almost 100 friggen Snowman Faces, but it’s been something new and different, which is maybe not what Fantage was renowned for in 2014.
Anyway, good luck in 2015

Fantage is coming towards the end of its life, and there’s a lot of evidence to suggest things will wrap up soon.
Their new map lay out is a push for new users as it provides clarity and everything is in one place. This is complicated game turns new users away. The server list shrinks every once in a while, which means the player base is dwindling, and as premium members stop playing/paying, Fantage cannot afford to run lots of servers. Everything they do is a push for money. It focuses on needing to use ecoins or get premium membership. They put items at super high prices that people need to buy ecoins or premium membership to buy them. Any cool new item is a premium member item. One in every 4+ is a non-premium item these days. Interacting with players and holding competitions is a push to keep current players. They keep releasing new benefits for premium membership to try to increase the number of members. One of these is cheaper items for them, once someone has bought premium membership, they probably won’t need to buy items with ecoins, therefore they just make more of an incentive for premium membership. Creating the iPad app reaches out to a different audience, which they hope will join up to the computer version, and then buy premium membership. The app is about to introduce in-app-purchases, yet another push for money. Also, children using the app are able to buy things easily without needing to use a credit card. Another obscure thing is the watching ads for ecoins. Fantage would get money everytime an ad is watched. And non-members wanting ecoins are still basically paying Fantage for them.
All this points towards Fantage desperately searching for money and a player base to keep it running. If things don’t change, there may not be a 2015 Fantage New Year Party.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,700 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Thanks for a great year guys!
