Terraria Online

After five years of tremendous service as the original Terraria Community, TerrariaOnline will be shutting down as of July 15th, 2016, by mutual agreement reached between Re-Logic and Curse. Beginning on or around that date, the site will go dark and no longer be accessible; links and bookmarks for TerrariaOnline will redirect to Terraria Community Forums (TCF).

Despite its recent lapse into low activity, TerrariaOnline (TO) has presided over much of the lifespan of Terraria:
  • the thrilling launch of the original game,
  • the breakneck build-up of game-play and features in to the original "finished" version (1.1.2),
  • the shocking announcement that Redigit was leaving Terraria behind, and the intense anticipation when he returned,
  • the addition of 505Games as a partner to introduce Terraria to consoles and mobile devices,
  • the virtually unprecedented release of two enormous, content-laden updates at no cost to those who had purchased the game,
  • and finally, the genesis and launch of Terraria Community Forums (this place), as Re-Logic began to eye the future beyond Terraria.
Throughout all of the ups and downs, even through the dark days of "Red's Hiatus", the TerrariaOnline community refused to let Terraria die. It is in large part to that unwavering support and enthusiasm from the TO community that we have the game that we enjoy today, and will continue to enjoy for sometime to come.

This has been a very difficult decision to make, but in the end it is in the best interests of the entire Terraria community, particularly in the areas of support and help. By having a more centralized community, it will become infinitely easier for the developers and staff to address concerns, both technical and otherwise. As TCF grew and grew, TO became much less active, and there simply wasn't enough resources to monitor these two communities...

It's sad to say it but since the Terraria.org community has been growing and the majority of our community has moved. Terraria Online will be coming down and the domain has been acquired by Re-Logic meaning that they will be redirecting to Terraria.org for the future.

This will be happening sometimes in the next month or so and as far as I know there will be no type of forum archive or any data saved so we highly recommend you save your favorite things now and don't wait :)

I want to thank you guys and girls and neutrals for being a part of our community over the last 5 years. This was the most exciting project I've ever worked on in my entire life. I was here since the beginning, helping to raise Terraria from the ground up to release and become one the biggest PC / Console games of all time. It might sound selfish but being a part of that was honestly one the best things in my life.

I do also want to take the time to apologize to everyone. I'm not going to go into it but I really wish I could of served you and Re-Logic better and had less limitations. I made a big mistake many many years ago and ended up costing us dearly, but as the saying goes - "Your education costs".

Re-Logic will be taking care of your future needs and you will be well taken care of :)

I wish everyone the best of luck for the future.

I'm signing out I need to find a job =)
