Clearly you've not been keeping up on development activity. Especially with CO given its already had an expansion, with the second announced. There are a lot of happy players over there at the moment. Its getting a lot of focus and its subscription numbers are climbing as a result.
Clearly you have never been to Singapore and clearly you have no clue what you type. The game is dying and they don't release sub numbers. Keep spouting misinformation.
You know how everyone always likes to say that things don't get tested enough around here?
Well ... fancy this ...
What if this free weekend event was a dry run? To see if it worked? And to get the bugs out?
So that when they do it again (and they will do it again, since they keep doing them in their other game) ... and tie the next one to a big patch possibly ... everything will fall into place smoothly for once?
Nah. Cryptic sucks. That's always the answer isn't it?
I don't think cryptic sucks, but I think it's still to early for a dry run. I would of pushed it back at least to 1.3. but I could be wrong.
