First i wanted to say its AWESOME to see brad back.. and i hope it helps things move to the better Second a quick story about dealing with brad early on.. I was lucky enough to be in the first wave of closed beta testers ( i think it was 400 people at first) and still have kept the cd to this day (pure black with Everquest across it).. Anyway.. at the time the frenzy for getting into the game was insane as alot of you know and i got the letter saying i was in beta but we had to wait like 3 weeks for the cd/key to show up. As the time neared i would email asking if it has shipped and why isn't it here and all that childish impatient stuff that people do. And to his credit Brad answered personally every single email i sent, was never rude and very professional, and eventually sent me a link and my key in email (which i kept cutting and pasting wrong, had a space stuck on the end of the key. yeah. im special) And of course the cd/key showed up the next day anyway I was lucky enough to have gotten an ISDN line for when i played UO.. so the download was nice.. Anyway.. just wanted to share what a nice guy brad is/was. And i wish i could go back and apologize for nagging him so much.. not realizing the stress/pressure they were under. but thats life P.S. i still think vanguard was a better game.. but thats just me P.P.S. forum wouldn't let me post under my normal name for some reason.. thus the "new user" tag..
