well now I am well and truly pissed off with this BS. and pretty much agree with everyone else this is the worst ever. I don't care about join date but that I lost my name and handle makes me really angry.
Do I want zen points??? No!!!! take that advertising off my damn screen. iI DO NOT CARE if peanut labs needs some guinea pigs to fill out their surveys
I am pretty angry over the change but realize theese folks in China or wherver they are have a different idea about gaming....this crap aint gonna fly for me too long. I feel sorry for poor cryptic...
i am a lifer and can come and go as i please but i damn well know they will miss my greenbacks that i shove down their throats if they dont start listening to me... ( i believe)I am part of the gaming base of players who keep this game afloat with real world money. Spent over 100 bucks this last month alone...hehe times are good with tips at work..
The reason the forum was completely changed was to have it integrated with PWE's user database, hence why you can't use your Cryptic handle to log in here. If they just took the original and put this design on it, it wouldn't work and doesn't fit with the Cryptic/PWE integration.
PWE use a heavily modified version of vBulletin 3.7.1, it's technically no longer vBulletin. But don't fret, there IS a new version of the forums currently in development and every PWE forum will be updated, including this one.
Even though I created my own name (many moons ago in SWG) I came to create a PW account and the account name was taken so not only have I had to select a new account name but a handle to. Poorly done indeed.
