Who loses in the end? Turbine and existing players.
Banned players are doing something else, and might not comeback. Talking about long time players.
If people I know are not coming back looks like almost time to call it quits too.
A lot of people talk to feel the same way.
On the bright side for the people cheering for permanent bans might get what they want. People not coming back. And maybe all like minded people can play on same sever as they do server merges.
DDO had a good run.
