Sometimes it just feels like the devs don't stop and think about what kind of impact some changes will have on their customers. To me, the average player, it looks like nothing really changed with the AA window except the appearance. All the AAs are still there. I didn't find anything different. So why did it require us to redo all of our AAs again? What's different behind the scenes, if anything? Does the new window look cool? Sure. I like it. But does it look cool enough to warrant spending the 8-10 or more hours (probably an underestimation) I will have to waste redoing the AA for every single one of my characters? Not by a long shot. I'm hoping there was a more significant and hidden change that required resetting our AA, because that's a lot of wasted time if this was merely aesthetic and not truly justified and necessary. I'm going to be spending most of the first couple of days of the new xpac just going through every one of my toons doing the mind-numbingly boring task of resetting everything back the way it was - and I have to do this before I can even play the characters. Did the devs even think about these ramifications beforehand? It doesn't feel like it sometimes. Was there no way to implement these changes without forcing us to go through this experience yet again? * * * * * * * On an unrelated note, did anyone else log in to the forums and find everything was reset? It asked me for a display name (I've been posting on the EQ forums for over a decade and EQ2 forums for over two years as Arcturys), and I just got an alert for posting my first message. Huh?
