I don't weigh in very often here, as it won't really matter what I say. However, today is a bit different. I get paid to run a multi-million dollar per year facility in real life. In the city that I live in, there are a couple other of the same facilities, from the same company, along with others that are owned and operated by a different company. Now, if I keep messing over my clients, with no results to back up a whole slew of apologies, what do you think is going to happen? Do you think my clients will go to another of the facilities my company owns of the same name, or do you suppose that they will switch to a new facility entirely, one owned by a differetnt organization? I'm going to go with the latter. In short, if you think that even though Shaiya is suffering from a couple months of crashes with no fixes, that those leaving the game are going to go to DD Tank, DK Online, Last Chaos, etc, you have lost your collective minds. That's not how business works. They are going to go to another company/ game entirely, more specifically Rift, Star Wars: ToR, WoW, or any number of FTP games NOT run by Aeria, the company they are losing faith in. Only thing that keeps most of us around are the friends we have made, the time and money we have spent on the game itself, and a sense of nostalgia. Your not running the best, most graphically vibrant, up-to-date product here as it is; Not really going to take alot to push people out the door and into someone else's business. Just a thought.
