I don't feel I'm in a coerced runned server anymore, and I can't remember if it ever was. Maybe its just me, but in my opinion the Admins / GMs don't give a rat's ass about me or any player(s) in this community. There's a disconnect between us (players) and them (Admins/GMs) and it has not been bridged for the longest time. We players committed a lot of time and effort, and in my case donations, because we believed we were getting outstanding service for being good patrons and thought it was worth helping for a good cause. When was the last time we had a GM event? Did any of the staff cared to bring in players from other means; such as advertisements / "Top100 MMORPG" sites? I bet all of my gears no GM/Admin has taken a look at messages about my artifact stone stuck in cash gift since November 2016. One day its announced, "changes to Overlord", then come patch day, it is false.
If I am wrong, if my opinions are baseless, if I am over reacting, I'm all ears.
Until then, I'll be in Steam.
