What boggles me was I didn't see any outcry for a change! This looks more "ASIAN MMO Glisten-Y" than the old way which was more Sci-Fi-ish....
It seems like at times Cryptic changes stuff simply for the sake of changing it. But as Azetbur once said, "...just because you can do a thing, does not mean you SHOULD do a thing..."
Indeed, no one was asking for this change, of all the things this game needs they focus on this? I think their priorities are in the wrong places, they certainly don't mesh with what we think are a priority.
