So, as I am typing this, I have a second screen up. It is the "Purchase Now" screen for the new MMO The Secret World.
I have considered playing TSW since the previews before it went live. It is different, fresh and for about 75%, is unlike any other MMO I know of (no I haven't played every MMO).
I loved DDO from the 1st day I logged on.
I hated WF at first then after making a WF Sorc to prove how awefull they were, I fell in love and NEVER gave fleshlings a second look....until now.
I PAYED for WF. I have invested alot of time into my WF main and my WF alts.
Though I may not be leading the pack in teh monetary value that I have contributed to the game, I have put quite a bit into it, including dropping the 200$ bomb recently for TPs that I have almost 1/2 left still.
I have considered playing other MMOs before this, but considering I can not justify spending money on more than 1 MMO, I just haven't done it.
The current state of WF is appalling at best. If it wasn't for the Arcane classes, there would be zero reason for me to play WF or for DDO to even have them and even with that, they are only somewhat able to keep up and only if they are a Sorc...AM just doesn't cut it when stacked nest to a PM or Sorc.
Turbine...you have officially SCREWED THE POOCH with your recent jackhammer style nerfs of the WF PREMIUM race.
I am going to swap screens after I hit the submit button for this thread and I am going ot purchase the initial 30 day subscription for TSW. If I like it and if WF are not shown ALOT...ALOT...A WHOLE LOT of love in u16 (maybe even a roleback to their previously PREMIUM state), I will permanently make the switch to TSW and just consider my money I have spent on this game another lesson learned...that lesson being that once a company starts making bad decisions, it probably will keep making bad decisions.
If I do not like TSW and Turbine does not do something to make WF a PREMIUM race again, I will hunt for another MMO and I will still not come back.
To make sure of this, I will not only give all of my gear away, but I will sell all the BTC/BTA merchandise I have and convert it to PP and give it to a guildy then I will delete all of my toons.
TURBINE, my fate and our future business relationship is in your hands now.
I hope allt he rest that have felt the prickly little bork going up the WF bum will consider this as well...maybe a mass exodus is what Turbine needs to get their act straight.
