Seeing so many new additions to the family, I thought it was a good idea to break up the posts about quitting WAR with the occasional positive post. ;)
So to those of you newly joined members, fear not. You didn't join a sinking ship. There are still plenty of us playing even if we occasionally grumble about the state of the game.
As many have pointed out, there are really no viable alternatives to WAR. Some of the changes have left a sour taste in my mouth, but a fruit that is 75% sweet and 25% sour is still mostly sweet.
Many of you have been reading about the many alpha and beta testers' love affair with Rift. It is a beautiful game and I look forward to playing it live. But aside from the fact that it will ship with no real oRvR, the best estimate for it's arrival is March 1st. Three months is an eternity in MMO time. That means that I'll be spending the next eternity or so still playing WAR. :)
Anyways I'll stop with my long winded post. I can't speak for everyone but I won't be going anywhere for awhile. See you guys in game!
