HALF-MAST FLAGS OVER BATTLESTATIONS: MIDWAY!!
Yesterday, as usual, several gamers tried to join Battlestations Midway Game Lobby. Our community is small, and going to be smaller and smaller, but our battles were intense and fierce, as usual. However, this evening we found unpleasant surprise. Log in to Game Spy account was not possible, instead of that we kept to receive message:
This game's backend service is unavailable.
My first thought wasn't optimistic. I've realised that this game is old and the company who released it, died long time ago. Battlestations Midway is old game with very small community and complete lack of support. I was waiting one day, but today nothing is changed: This game's backend service is unavailable.
Should we give up? I started to think and search, and that's what I found.

A info from Gamespy website:
GSIACUnavailable: This game's services are not available. Game play will not be possible for an extended length of time or indefinitely. This should only return when a service has been discontinued because the developer or publisher has chosen to not renew the service.
OK. Now we know they wants money. Let's try to find how much money
I found the price-list and after seconds I've realised that the GameSpy service for Battlestations: Midway should be free..... or at least maybe there is option to pay them a little.... but for that we need to contact them and make some noise about our game.
At this monent I can only ask You, guys, to join Facebook GameSpy fanpage and add a coment about Battlestations Midway. I'll try to contact them using Facebook and emails, but... PLEASE... help me and add some comments about Battlestations: Midway on their Facebook webpage
Ask your friends for it too. Maybe they can add extra comment for us. Let's go for our battle stations and let's fight for our favourite game!
We have already tried to use Game Ranger service, but it;s not working. Even Game Ranger needs GameSpy to connect us. GameSpy in only one option to play this game with the others.
