Ares Wizard Shut Down – Best Ares Wizard Alternatives
Kodi third party developers under serious crisis; no more Ares Repository and no more Colossus Repository, looks like MPA-led anti-piracy coalition Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment are on the hunt this weekend. Unfortunately Ares Wizard has gone down today leaving behind some popular Ares Wizard Alternatives.
Developer shutdowns are really starting to be quite upsetting for all the Kodi users, but the fact remains that Ares Repository plus Mucky Duck have now been taken offline. If you’ve missed the craziness over the past few days, third party add-on developers are on the radar and finally Ares Wizard shut down as well.
To bring it to knowledge a repository is a delivery mechanism for add-ons within Kodi. Some are sanctioned legal while some are filled with 3rd party add-ons which provide content through less legal means.
The Ares Project, the group behind the hugely popular Ares Wizard and Kodi repository, has thrown in the towel.

What’s going on so what do we know so far, we’ve got a lot going on overnight. The famous developers Lucifier has already retired followed by Alpha whose twitter account does not exist anymore.
In case anyone had any doubt that I’m actually retiring this time. https://t.co/haZxT66HpK

This was not enough to put the Kodi users to grief that the famous Ares Wizard has also shutdown. Ares_Wizard’s Twitter Account has also been suspended.
Mucky Duck has also quit the league of 3rd party add-on which is evident from his recent tweet.
Mucky Duck will no longer be developing the mdrepo or duckpool repo. Ive shut them down due to unforeseen legal actions that I’m not at liberty to discuss.

The whole idea of Cord Cutting is to stream and watch content for free. Now these backlashes are scaring users to pay the Cable providers the deserving money.
But let’s cut the panic and lets not be afraid of the storm because the community is strong and there is plenty of Kodi Content from other Repositories and also a lot of Ares Wizard alternatives.

- SuperRepo Repository (Installation Guide)
- Noobs & Nerds Repository (Installation Guide)
- SportsDevil Repository (Installation Guide)
- Kodil Repository (Installation Guide with Covenant Addon)
To Wrap Up
As a matter of fact the developers are putting on their best to bring out the most sought repositories and addons for the users. But such actions are jeopardizing the developer stakes. Hopefully the community will bounce back but fingers would remain crossed for the next 48 hours.
