I'm going to say, BE won't renew their server contract in 2020. Dropping the price tag, placed another nail in EC's coffin. It brought a flood of toxic players and bad publicity. Hell, there's videos on YouTube where creators cue up to stream snipe and point out how garbage the maps are. Personally, I believe BE had many opportunities to fix EC but their "pet project" (and god knows where else the money went) was more important --- and failed hard. Sony, SoE/Daybreak, and NCSoft would have done ten-times the justice to EC. Even in their slowest content draughts.
