Dear Athens players,Thank you so much for enjoying Athens, Arham & I's baby. We were so excited to see people enjoying the content we created, having fun in the Skype chat, and overall providing a fun experience for everyone playing Athens. We wish this fun could go on forever, and we would never have to come to this option. But sadly, as all things do, it must come to an end. This isn't something Arham & I would like, or ever announce, especially with any of our projects, but it seems we had some trouble getting off the ground especially in the financial department. With that, we can no longer afford to keep Athens alive, and Arham especially has actually lost money on Athens and we have zero funds to continuously support the website and server costs. With this, Arham is attempting to recover the lost with becoming a paid developer over at Rune-Blaze and I am following becoming an administrator.We're looking at this as a 'merger', hoping our players move over to play Rune-Blaze and even your donations meaning something over there. Alan, the Rune-Blaze owner, has said he would attempt to recover the amount donated to Athens with something equivalent at Rune-Blaze.We thank you for playing, and hope to see you over at Rune-Blaze.AndrewAthens Community Manager& All of Athens's Staff

We are averaging 5 players and peaked at 10. Not too bad for a start, is it?
We hit 11 players yesterday, in the grand scale of things against other servers that obviously isn't much but to us that's a good job so far.Come play!http://theathens.net
I joined and saw that this is not a very friendly community. I'm sorry.
Glad to know that you're still working on this mate, love the forums.
Lmao, this server is probably one of the most communicative and friendly servers out there. Yeah we do have our arguments, but it's pretty much us trying to explain why our opinions on the direction of the server are valid versus others.This is Beta, and all players feel differently on what is necessary to add, remove, and change. Right now is probably the most promising time to get our opinions on change to become reality. Outside of that, pretty much no one is fighting unless we're playing around.
