Mythic to close down some Warhammer Online servers

It appears that some of Warhammer Online's servers are being shut down. According to the Gamespy article that initially brought my attention to the news, apparently Warhammer Online has 300,000 subscribers, which isn't too bad, although it hadn't reached the 1 million that they were expecting - and this is one of the gripes I have with MMORPGs. The game may offer excellent gameplay - or at least *you* think so - but if your opinions differ to the majority of the population that means the game becomes unpopular and MMORPGs can't run if they're not popular so it eventually results in them being closed down. For the sake of the Warhammer Online fans, I hope it doesn't suffer the same fate as Fury!
