Korean MMO deleted during server repairs

M2 taken offline for critical maintenance, never to return

A Korean MMO has been taken permanently offline after the game's data was deleted during essential server maintenance last month.

M2, run by developer Sankando and operator Hangame, was taken offline on the 21 October to deal with a widespread data problem, reports IgxPro.

During the server maintenance which ensued, vital information was deleted from the game's database which could not be restored and had not been backed up externally or elsewhere.

Because the free-to-play game operated largely on funds from premium items, some "selective compensation" has been offered to players for lost purchases.
