I was just told in another thread that all of the requests for new content leading up to this point meant that people were asking for new weapons and items, not continents and game mechanics. I've seen non-stop threads complaining about how the devs have ruined the game by allowing people to lock continents, and how the game is dying because all of the fights are too big. I'm not trying to be sarcastic here. I'm actually really really scared. I cannot remember a single day up to this point where there was not at least one thread on the front page doom-crying about how Hossin's delay was a sign of the game's decline and how lack of large fights was ruining everything and how every new weapon and item that released with out major content was a sign that the devs were milking the game for money. Up to this point I have argued with dozens of people who were convinced that the game was being "CODified" because the developers had not pushed out Hossin and cont. lock and because of the sagging populations, and now I am being told by almost everyone I reply to that the massive battles we now have on emerald are "CODifcation" and "catering to casuals". I know you all think I'm being snide here. But I'm not. Honest to Vanu, I'm not. I don't know how to convey this without sounding like I'm trying to stir up drama because text can't relay fear. This has scared the Higby out of me. I'm actually freaking out. Did I remember this all wrong? Is it just a fabrication of my mind?
