To the OP -- Thanks for keeping it rational and I have to say that I can't find much to disagree with you about except that I think reviews of MMOs after less than a month are generally a snapshot in time more than they are a review.
OMG MY FANBOI PROGRAM JUST LOCKED UP FOR A MINUTE SOMEONE CALL A GOON TO STRAIGHTEN ME RIGHT OUT! :p
SO will you put out another letter after the end of next month or is only one month enough time to evaluate a brand new game? While your letter is well written, I find it way to pre-emptive.
Depends how Grumpy I feel I suppose, but half way through commander 9 I found myself in another content hole, and looking at what missions I have available, I think I'm going to have a slow grind through the last rank before captain.
