Sad, sad news. I honestly thought they were doing very well with their F2P model. Maybe it was too restrictive for returning players. The only choice for us was to pay the monthly sub or reroll all new toons. I think that was their biggest mistake.
Also they started to focus too much on "end game". The game did fine for 5 years without that cursed word.
Sigh. Teaming in that game was the best fun I've had in MMO's, and it still was one of the most original and best MMO's out there. I'm really sad to see my beloved toons go. I was thinking about resubbing later this year, but I guess that's not happening.
