I don't understand the mentality and mindset about a player who doesn't like the rule set of a server, but then so passionately voices their anger in the hopes of getting it changed to something that they like. There are thousands upon thousands of EQ players- not everyone is going to like the exact same thing. If you don't like Oakwynd rule set, cool- DON'T PLAY ON IT. There are dozens of servers, with different rule sets, that you can go to. This game has 30 plus expansions you can play in. Find a server you do like that meets your desires and play on that! There are people (not me) who are excited to play on Oakwynd. Let them have their fun and enjoy themselves. It is all speculation right now how many players will be on that server- it could be a six hour login queue wait, it could be a ghost town on Day 4. None of us know. But it is selfish and childish IMHO to continue to want the server rules changed because they don't coincide with your desires. The server IS being released. It IS being released with FTE in whatever incarnation it is, and will be patched as necessary. YOU DON'T HAVE TO PLAY ON THE SERVER. No one is forcing you. The game will continue on if you don't create a character on the server. You will be OK.
