Never know what breathe will be your last eh? So will the game still be around for your 60th?

I think a lot of people who had blind faith in the game just walked into a pole today.

But heck what do I know.

They may have made many old players angry and want to leave, but they just won many new and semi old players who will take the place of the old bitter players.

just a thought

The game is still very playable and this hardly diminishes it's enjoyability...

But it certainly puts my feelings toward the future choices the Makers of the game make, into a tail spin...

I have never before, really spoken out against the monetary decisions that They have made in the past to keep the game viable...

And I can understand the reason in trying to create ways to bring in more funds...

I just wish They hadn't diminished the value of the time and money that many of us have already invested in the game, in the process of achieving that goal.

Actually It's refering to a converation yesterday I had with him-it's his 54th birthday this month and I said the game might not be around for his 60th - all these people jumped all over me as a doom and gloom

But I stand by the fact that nothing is set in stone and this just like any other day could be a going out of business sale more than a Vet rewards sale - to think it's not possible is silly.

Ramble on...

Just remember... if it hadn't been for us Grumpy Lifetime Squatters, ...

You Wouldn't Have a Game to Play Now.


All of the Lifetime Subs sold in the first year...,

Not only helped to get the game launched, but it also kept ATARI alive long enough to be able to sell the game to PWE.

Also important to remember: Churn relies heavily on word of mouth.

One should watch what bridges they burn.

So they won't shoot themselves it the foot for a one time monetary boost? I think my odds of an OP Vesta just got better!
