I've been keeping up with the game. They are still a poster child for what NOT to do with a valuable product. They revamped it a second time. I now barely recognize the game. In many ways, I am glad that I am done with that game.
In the last year since I stopped playing, I played Final Fantasy X-2, replayed Final Fantasy X, Okage Shadow King, Dark Cloud, Lego Star Wars, and Soulcalibur 3. Lately I've been doing work on the D&D wiki. All in all, I must say, dropping the on-line game was quite rewarding.
Everyone once in a while I have the itch to go back online. Then I shrug and it goes by. My future looks busy enough without a timesink.
