In mod 15 they took professions our profession people and gave coupons. You had to start over again to get profession people with workshop. now this mod 16 they took away fighting abilities, healing ,defense next mod IF there is one will they take away stronghold or make u redo it . Seems new content now is only based on what can we TAKE not what can we do to make it an extension of old , but new and better . this seems to be the thought of most people I talk too

    Yes, the new income model for Cryptic is to remove the things they already sold you, then hope that you will pay and play to get back to close to the crafting success/combat abilities/whatever you had before.

    What they didn't take away was your ability to vote with your wallet and your feet and move on to another game if you feel they have destroyed too much of the value of the game for you.

    Cryptic has generally had a somewhat adversarial relationship with their players, and they don't care too much about your opinion unless people start leaving in droves.

    Interesting, coming on the heels of a 2 maintenance periods day, where they patched stuff the community has been going on about, and then fixed something they broke that the community was also harping about.

    Probably fair to say they are fixing stuff that shouldn't have been broke on release to live.

    But a MMO is a fluid thing, and Cryptic needs to make some $$, so we need to expect that the goal posts get changed every now and then to encourage us to spend some $$. Otherwise the game doesn't exist.

    Possibly. However, they are fixing it, and contrary to what these forums, and PE would have us believe, not so many players are "talking with their wallet" as claim to be. Case in point, the same 5 or 6 people have been "quitting" since the launch of the update. They'll tell you all about it, unless you block them, every time you have to go to PE for something. I've even co-opted them a song, based on Evanescence My Immortal:

    If you have to leave, I wish that you would just leave, Your tears still linger here, and they're flooding the zone.
