    It's not that bad. Only a handful of gear sellers, mostly all DZ sourced. You are going to find that everywhere.

    I don't see "the devs bullied" being a possible thing. I've worked at game companies. The devs have extremely little say or control over the feature set of any game. It's the game producers that determine that.

    What I could see the devs saying is "if you want X you're going to have to find a way to come up with Y dollars because we're going to have to re-engineer Z...which will take this many months and will likely produce bugs that will impact existing life and/or TLP servers." Then the producers would say something like "well, what if we PoP locked it? Would that be cheaper?" That's how stupid decisions get made in game companies.

    Was going to box on Rizlona, but not investing that much $ into several accounts only to have the server die in PoP.

    The whole point behind being able to box was progressing my group forward, regardless of having someone else there to fill my group or not.

    I hear you 100% and this could be the case, but the wild card is JChan is/was a programmer who is nowthe head of DPG. She was sitting next to those guys just a few months ago where as Holly was more of a historical part of the the franchise (good and bad). JChan even said it herself in an interview that people met her and only realized later she was a programmer in the game because she was so quiet. I hope she gets her voice and realizes that she can control the future of this game in a better way then this announcement has set the tone.

    Mangler is not an option for me. I tried playing there and was so disgusted at the hacking, blatant afk botting, and obvious breaking of the truebox ruleset (hello 72 boxers!) that I left.

    I just logged on to Phinny to see what it felt like...but it just felt to 'live like'.

    Show me a 72 boxer and I'll give you a Krono!

    If you are going to lock these servers, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE reconsider locking them at OOW instead of POP. So much great content between POP and OOW!

    Maybe remove the text "Planes of Power/Lost Dungeons of Norrath at which point it will be locked." as it will cause confusion.

    My sincerest thanks, Bestdreamer! You can have my "Yay!" back.

    Give them a moment. Also thank you DPG. I know I have not been the happiest of people this past 24 hours (not on the Angered post level) but this has helped you guys and us. Both servers will be successful.

    Here's a tip; when making critical changes to a communication, providing a link to said communication is always helpful :(
