Chobots.net closed it's doors in April 2014 following a [Facebook Post] "Beloved users of Chobots.net, It is with deep regret I have to inform you that our game has come to an end. It has been a great journey and Chobots has been a great part of our lives. We have shared memories and made new friends. Friendships made on Chobots can never be replaced. With much sadness, today is the day we must say goodbye. The Chobots.net team would like to thank everyone for their dedication to the game. There is a website named Chobotical claiming relationship to Chobots.net — this is not true. We wish everyone the best of luck in their futures."

Private Server Complications

The first "large" private server to release during Chobots.net's life-time was Chobots.im and one of the initial responses of the Chobots.net Staff Team was to ban users who were caught playing on the server, this trend was seen with all private servers following, however instead of banning users the Chobots.net Staff Team began only banning users involved with Moderating & Launching the Private Servers instead.
