Tibia can't stop.
There will always be people who will keep playing, because there will just always be people that like the real tibia.
Of course many nabs want to own their ot server or be a gm, so they go play ot.
but great percentage of ot players also plays real tibia.
So many stupid answers here, look forward. Tibia will never fall, unless they choose to shut their servers. And of course tibia want to have profit of their game, they will try their best to keep the game interesting.
In fact tibia's updates is not that bad after all, just that they did wrong from the beginning. All you guys force yourself to not believe it.
OT cannot surpass Tibia because OT is based off of Tibia. If Tibia did fall, there wouldn't be anymore real updates for the OT to work with. OT would become static until a bunch of new games rise due to all the custom mods done by each individual server. So basically OT can't survive without Tibia, unless OT becomes a bunch of new games with totally different graphics and client for each individual server.
i feal as real tibia grows.. ot will start to grow twice as fast... i mean sooner or later we might even branch off and people will be doing there own like tibia 9.8 updates and stuff... but yea.. as of now we need tibia.. but when we can make our own i think we will be 100 times bigger then real tibia ever will be
