Well hopefully it comes back then. Not sure about when but if it ever did, I'd pick it up again.

Hopefully we hear some news soon. I've checked their facebook page almost everyday but I think they've abandoned it :P

WK's making its return as Gameheart officially gained publishing rights. A new company of developers is now working on WK and pushing forward to include new content ( they've already finished up Dark village and Avale from screenshots and more ) They're revamped skills and are tweaking many issues. They plan to take it as far as it can go.
For the speculation of what happened during the whole close down it was mainly on the CEO w/ Ryu&Soft getting greedy with income and attempting to provision the developers to other countries ( such as the phillipines ) to create their own version while ignoring others. There were also pay issues and eventually the DEV"s just got fed up and things went down hill. Its usually something to do w/ something going on corrupt.
Though now that its said and done Japan has been working on their own content details over the past year to include within Wonderking. NA is still looking at rights but has also given the notion that it may just pursue publishing rights w/ Japan as the main developer as it would be easier to communicate with as far as bugs and other fixes.
From the CBT alone that JUST passed in Japan ( many of us @ ClubWK were on it ) there were about 5k players in all. Many issues got reported and the GM's are already having their teams fixing up bugs and other things. PvP also got an upgrade and some maps changed as well ( Snow map now allows you to move around as an actual map vs 1 static up and down ) as well as additions to others.
New skills have been added as well as others revamped to look more flashy and fix some issues w/ animation taking to long. Some may complain that some skills "appear" to be missing but things are currently in the testing phase right now and subject to change. If you guys are still interested however it just means we'll have a bigger player database once things go back online.
As far as the NAWK version retaining data, I've verified with former GM Zabu ( now a producer with IG ) that the data IS still intact, though the process of either a rollback or wipe is still a concern to those that recall the last quarter of hacking going on in WK once they lost their hackshield license.
Anywhoo ClubWK is also back online and lots of familiar faces have been returning. We maintain tutorials for the Japanese version should you want to jump on early and or just a place to chat and have fun. I'll maintain posting updates on all forums I'm finding fans of WK on so that the entire community can stay up to date. Feel free to stop by though as I'm sure you'll run into someone familiar <3

We will hold the event much longer than the previous ***( looking to be around 1-2 weeks possibly)***
The level cap will also be raised as well as other maps around the continent opened for exploring.
The level cap will be about 20 levels above the 2nd job change ****( so 100? )***
We want to verify if there are any issues with people achieving this and or bugs so please let us know.
We have 500 names in our lottery drawing for those that signed up. I want to set up a page dedicated to this for
