All right so nothing special or fancy, but possibly TLDR for some: either way. I would like to start by saying I have the utmost respect for some of you players who have been around the past 15 yrs, kept up with all of the hardships and keep on playing. I understand we all deal with the difficulties of the never ending quests that are this game whether past or future.. I WOULD like to voice something as a long playing returning member.. well, more than something.. This game used to be a LOT DIFFERENT, and I apologize if it sets any player in arms when we veterans act on these feelings.. honestly its not you're fault and you probably wouldn't understand, and most importantly we are not saying we are better than you in any way, if anything the new armors, weapons, mounts, understandings of area, among all the new progression is alot to take in and quite impressive.. I feel like there are some of us returning who just simply wish to enjoy the game as we remember it, and start learning the new differences.. but being shunned because you've been in the dark is not fair in any way, and then being diminished just because you miss the days when it took you MONTHS to grind lvl to get to 51, instead of the fastest way possible to 115... classes used to depend on each other... I used to get HATED on BC i was known as the ZEB free porter, drus and wizs always got upset.. but i just wanted to help.. Anyways that's just an example.. i have many more.. but the basis of what im saying is if you want to rush through the game, fine, leave other ppl to our own fun, why ruin it? i wont get into it but ive already been taken advantage of for millions of pp... but i still like to play when I find a genuine person in need of help... not just trying to get the next best sword for 20m when your 115.. NOT that you players havent earned that, just dont step on other ppl for doing their thing... SO what I would like to know is there any future beyond this, or is it just a lost cause for ppl who aren't interested in paying out the wallet and getting 115? Is there any possible future for a server that is unobtainable unless your char is umpteen yrs old? it's not like it'd hurt anyone.. One thing I know is for sure: from the age 15 to 20 i respectively played this game with 2 accts... @ 15 a month for both X 5 years.. thats 30 X 60 = 1,800 then an average of $20 per with 24 expansions = ( thats 40 X 48 counting both accts. ) = another 960. So I do understand why some of you don't appreciate why we miss the game and its worth saying something... spending 5 years and over $2,700 on a game ( not even adding in these "New Purchases" ) has a little weight when you've been an avid gamer for a long time... not to forget part of the reason this game still exists. Again, to each their own, go get your 115 stuff, id help if I could... but please stop trying to put an end to returning players? what good is that doing for anyone??
