Thats odd, now that I am not with gaming anymore at all, now Tunngle goes down for good. Still had the lifetime membership ^^, guess i should sew them 😀
But really, its sad to see a great Service like Tunngle go down. They had millions of users, and deserved I think. But then it makes you wonder, with all the Ads that they had with the free license, and the I think quite many people with one of their memberships, you’d think that they could afford making the changes to their software that are required because of the European GPRD (if I wrote that correct).
Or was it rather something not so “ok” going on, that was underneath their software. Something that would have come out otherwise or/and would have required so much changes, that it wouldnt have worked with their concept of the Software. Makes you wonder. I doubt it was a money problem, or would have been so hard to change that they rather went away for. In a time where sharing user data is a hot topic, where companies like Facebook shit on the word privacy, its not that hard to believe that there were other motives/reasons behind a decision like this.
I mean, its a sad thought, given how good Tunngle was. Especially for Games like Joint Ops and other still LAN capable games, it was one of the better solutions (i even go so far and say it was the best, in my own opinion) out there and its sad to hear its gone.
I guess I stopped with gaming at the right time, considering things like this would have really upset me otherwise. BattleLAN never really got to me, it might be effective but its a boring little program. Not to mention that it requires giving people your real IP, i never liked the idea. But if its all whats left…
Other services like Game Ranger, Evolve and similiar are not a valid alternative, and are even worse when it comes to pay functionality. And the classic, Hamachi, stopped being good after they had been sold many many years ago. After that, it wasnt the same anymore.
Anyways, i hope you guys still find all the right tools to continue play this fine game over LAN, when the incredible 😀 Novaworld LOL goes off. 😉
