Being rude, racist or otherwise unruly is never acceptable and I don’t condone it. I understand getting upset, believe me, because I’m so passionate about this game and I want it to succeed. So when my real life time investment, months worth of work, gets pulled out from under me at no fault of my own and further, the company I paid for a working product refuses to even attempt making it right to keep me playing and paying for their future DLCs, it gets me incredibly frustrated. But that frustration can be expressed in a civil and constructive manner.
I appreciate the discussions being had in this thread and reading differing opinions, even if I don’t agree with all of them, but I BEG everyone to keep this civil.
I am, if nothing else, grateful that my post has been allowed to stay up to get dialogue going amongst people, even if staff involvement has been absent.
I’ve always wondered if premium servers would be successful in a game like this. I personally would be willing to pay a monthly subscription, similar to many other games, to play on a server or servers that offered in-game support. So that Funcom could afford to staff someone on to help police cheaters quickly to minimize damage done.
