Gamespy support certainly will end
I predict:

The gamespy support, responsible for the service, that each player (and some online websites as well) will see the recent (dedicated and nondedicated) online servers in the list inside of his game, will find its end one day, this is certain.

Why I predict this?
Very easy, because it already happened half a year ago for a very related game (from the same manufacturer which also developed VC) "Hidden and dangerous 2".
The service was switched off over night, with no warning, and I assume, the scene in HD2 was even more active as the scene in VC even at that point of time.

The result after half a year in HD2 is now, that the activity of clans and players is reduced to appr. 10% of the activity, that was shown before the gamespy support had ended.
The official statement by Gamespy in this issue was, that the support was paid by Pterodon/Gathering just for some years and it ended one year ago even, so the support was made for a whole year for free finally...
A reason, that is actually understandable... at least for me...

In detail this means: you start your game, and the list of available servers is empty.
And it will never show up any of the online servers in the future any more.

What I would like to achieve here and right now, to see the VC-scene to be prepared to the day X, because it is certain that the gamespy support will end as well for VC.
There should be found a solution to get rid of the dependence from Gamespy, or the VC-scene will suffer the same sad destiny, that HD2 had experienced.

IF there is a solution, please find it, the earlier, the better...
Thank you for reading this Ladies and Gentlemen, just think about, I hope some smart guys will have an idea...

From what i know Pterodon (Jarek/Erik) agreed on a lifetime support contract for VC with gamespy.....

I hope noone will prove me wrong......
Well, this CAN be true, but it must not.

Unless this issue isn't clearly veryfied, believe whatever you want,

- if it is really a question of belief, pray
- if online gaming (as the whole internet itself) is economical and logical based, think one step ahead.

I don't want to start panicing

Everybody can get an imagination about what is going on, reading this article from December 2012 (as an example, I guess you can find more articles):

GameSpy denies shutting online servers without warning

From my point of view its not a big deal....our website is well known in the community and we can provide a list of all gameservers if requested by the community.
