A couple of us are... becoming more angry as I comprehend the shut-down of Stormhold. I doubt we're the only ones who have hunkered down and made different EQ2 homes there, in addition to AB. It really does suggest further constriction of this product line and it's very discouraging. While it was clear the migration to more cost-effective servers was a serious economic move, merging this one means even that expense for the ROI is too much. In other words, players should not expect to settle down on any Norrathian ground as it may just be pulled out from under us. That hardly inspires confidence in the continuation of this company, now does it? It's just damn awful. I was enjoying reading about the update until I got to the news about the merger. Now I don't know that I care at all.
