When Paragon was shut down by Epic in April 2018 I’ll admit I was gutted. I was never a bạn of MOBAs despite Tyên ổn here at PC Invasion trying khổng lồ get me over to Dota 2. Paragon was different. It offered something quite special with its excellent character kiến thiết, visuals, verticality, and enthralling gameplay.

Paragon’s development was troubling for Epic and they never quite knew which direction to lớn take it. Well — they lost direction when Epic’s Steve sầu Superville left the company. He was on the right traông xã và then it was all changed for the worse. Smaller map; quicker games which nobody toàn thân wanted; characters not being tweaked for balance. It was all a bit of a mess.

Fortnite Killed Paragon

Then came Fortnite, Epic’s cash-cow which they happened upon by making a battle royale mode for the floundering PvE game. Paragon team members were pulled off the project to lớn help with the huge influx of Fortnite players, và the rest is history. As was Paragon.

For Paragon players like myself, it was tough lớn see the game being shelved. It showed so much potential but alas Epic had lost their way.

Epic did realise there was a passionate community playing the game, even if it wasn’t anywhere near the numbers Fortnite was pulling in, & they did eventually release the game’s assets to lớn the community & offer refunds to lớn those who had spent real money on the game. The release of the assets was a big giảm giá khuyến mãi for the fans because it has now spawned development teams working on a new version of the game.

There was much debate over which version of the game was better when Monolith released.

When Epic moved from their Legacy bản đồ & changed a lot of the mechanics, the game essentially changed & it also caused a lot of debate within the community as khổng lồ which version was best. The change didn’t exactly help Epic as a portion of their player base simply quit. It’s worth pointing out that Paragon had amassed 7.3 million registered accounts by July 2017 having only done a small amount of marketing for the game. By 2018 fans were wondering if Epic could save & fix Paragon. It was too late, Fortnite had happened.

Gone but never forgotten. The future could be bright

When Paragon closed in April 2018 it was a sad day for those who, lượt thích me, were playing every day of the week. As someone who generally doesn’t enjoy MOBAs, Paragon was clearly something special. It’s heartening to lớn see two teams spawn from the community & attempt to lớn bring back – & improve sầu on – what will hopefully be an expanded third-person MOBA experience, with some of the amazing characters Epic created.

Both CORE and Predecessor appear khổng lồ be vying for the same audience but, with any luck, we’ll see these two projects differentiate enough from each other lớn attract their own communities. There has been plenty of games in the past that have spawned slight variations on a formula and I know Paragon fans are waiting eagerly khổng lồ see how each of these projects pan out. It’s definitely worth keeping an eye on both development teams very closely in the months ahead.
