PostSubject: Robot Kampen Closing   Tue Dec 21, 2010 8:39 pm

As many of you might know, Blip (www.blip.se) is the Swedish website that hosts Robot Kampen, the Swedish version of Robot Rage. It appears to be hosted from this account: http://blip.se/person.aspx?pid=d6a088fb-621a-446e-9b53-c55a00380315. Recently I received an email from their newsletter with the following announcement(original in Swedish and translated into English)...

Quote :
The payback period is extended
Dear Blip and Blipvillemedlemmar...

As you may have read on our sites, we regret to announce the Blip and Blipville closure from the end of 2010/11. It is with sadness in our hearts we must inform you of this. We have for several years managed the game community Blip.se and the virtual world Blipville, our sites have been highly appreciated by you, our dedicated users.

Since our last e-mail mailing unfortunately did not reach any address do we do this mailing back and extends the same time period for the repayment. In order to get money back for unused Premium Days and coins, you can now until Thursday, December 23 23:59 still send in your form for reimbursement. It is important that we get the form by December 23.

Greetings from Åsa and Gabriel on the editorial

At the end of this email, it linked me to a page from their website (original in Swedish and translated into English)...

Unfortunately, TV4 not obtain long-term economy of Blip and Blipville, but has struggled with a lack of profitability for a long time. TV4 can, as a commercial company, not run sites, services and activities that make a loss. Of course it is sad for us at the office and for your users, a great loss of two sites has been a meeting of friends and eager for many years.

How it changes on the site?
No major changes at the sites will be done. We will remove the possibility of making new purchases of coins and Premium, all else will in principle be different from today until December 31 when both sites are shut down .. The game features that today there are left empty-year. The game features that today just for Premium will continue to be there until year-end.

December 31, 2010, both sites will shut down completely.

In order to get their money back, you as a member fill out a form on which to base on, and to whom, money refunded. To access this form, please contact our support at support@blip.se. Values of 99 dollars and less, we offer instead a two-month free usage of TV4 Anytime. The deadline to apply for a refund is December 15. Do you have multiple accounts, you need to submit one form for each account, you can not enter more than one account on a Form.

What happens to those who have active subscriptions in Blipville?
We will terminate all active subscriptions, you as a customer need not enter and exit, this is thus automatically from our side in October.

Why does not anyone else over the running of sites?
We have over a long period been in discussions with several parties regarding Blip and Blipville. Unfortunately we have not managed to reach a solution that suits all parties.

Needless to say, it seems so far that this is the end of Robot Kampen. Does anyone else have any more information about this? What are your thoughts?

You mean the normal version of Robot Rage? Well Miniclip has a lot of other minor games, which don't make money directly from players, so it must be from advertising I suppose. Too bad it's the end of Robot Kampen though. Crying or Very sad Today is a sad day...
