    It's a shame. After playing since august 2000 without any breaks I canceled my 3 accounts.

    Yes, you won DayBreak.
    I am not paying to get frustrated by the server performance and stability.
    This has been during for more than 6 months now. And nothing seems to change.
    I have also canceled my subscription on my active accounts.
    :mad:

    It is disheartening to see posts like this.

    I don't blame you. I would cancel as well if my server was performing like AB.

    I played my main since december 2000. And I still love EQ. But atm you can't play EQ on AB server. And I dont pay 3 accounts for nothing. If there was a progress I would still pay. But I can't see that.

    At this point I'd just like to give some praise to DBG. They don't get much, so I'll redress the balance a bit I hope.

    I refused to play EQ for several years while my friends raved about it (back in original and then kunark era) because I knew I had an addictive personality. Once I started, I'd be well and truely hooked! In the end, due to a free magazine CD trial, I tried it sometime late Velious. Yes, I was correct. UTTER addict and was playing long after my friends had moved on. I made new ones of course in game, but it's not the same as the ones you meet IRL regularly.

    That situation lasted a decade or so, until DBG took over. They broke my addiction by carefully weening me off it. Initially just a few hours here and there, but gradually over time the game on AB become less and less playable and finally lead me to an ultimatum where I focused all my will power into a single act - cancel the recurring subscription and a vow to not renew if the performance didn't improve before it expired. It was one month away, so it didn't seem so horrible - a little dalliance with danger maybe to make things exciting, but surely it wouldn't last long. DBG weren't quitters though! They hung on and kept up the rubbish performance for the entire month, so I *FINALLY* broke the habbit.

    I've been clean now for nearly 2 years. A huge thank you to DBG.

    I see it's come around to that time again though and they've embarked on a new addict cleansing program. Respect.
