I am new here but i feel what DLU is doing is a good decision. Without publicity there are less public problems needing to be dealt with which means more time for development. If you take another mmo that shutdown and then was recreated by fans, Toontown Rewritten. It started of closed then released an alpha with a tiny amount of public testers. Then a closed beta. Then a scheduled beta where it was open to public for certain times. And now an open beta. And that project is running smoothly and growing. So if DLU was to follow the same path or close with small testings by the public and in the end be able to release an amazing product. Its just my opinion but i think the DLU developers are making a good decision on where they want to take the development to. So good luck to them and I thank them for what they are doing, and bringing back great memories.
