We received many passionate ideas for where to take the game; the outpouring of thoughtful suggestions is another testament to this incredible community,” reads a blog post attributed to the Paragon team. “After careful consideration, and many difficult internal debates, we feel there isn’t a clear path for us to grow Paragon into a MOBA that retains enough players to be sustainable.
