You feel annoyed, betrayed, sad and angry for a few days, maybe a week, then you forget about it and life goes on. Sooner or later you'll have to accept that when this game finally shuts down for good, the loss of time and money is a consequence of your own actions.

It would probably not be the wisest choice to spend a shiet load of money into a game which is already dying and has a lifetime of 6 years. You're kinda screwing yourself over.

i'd even say, what happens to any player in general.

idk how it works in others mmos but i guess you just lose everything when it happens.
To me it'd be cool (idk if it's doable thought) that every player can download an offline version of the game in which you could play all the chars of your account.
This way even if you lose a lot of the interests of the gale as you'd play alone, at least it'd be kind of a nostalgia game where you can see and play your chars forever... i think that to me it's gonna be really hard to just lose everything i've done during these years, so something like this should exist

What some game developers do when they get tired of their game or simply make no or close to no money from it anymore, is that they either sell it to another developer, or they open-source it and release it to the public for people to be able to run private servers etc.

You can always hope that they'll choose one of these options when the game comes to an end. However judging by how little they've shown to care about their players in regards to support and feedback I'm not so sure they would care about this either.

offline download would be the correct thing, if the game would ever get shut down
however we found out together this is extreme unlikely, nobody shuts down a well running business


otherwise, its something you HAVE to consider, everytime you spend $ on virtual goods
you lose control for a promise in return
the promise here is you can play with the virtual goods and have fun

promises can be broken
always consider that before donating


PS:
at a certain point of time, you will have spent <1$ / day in total
thats the point of time where you can say "i got something for my $ and IF they ever shut it, the financial loss is small"
