Actually, there was free shards back then.WiseOne wrote:Well if you want to go that far then technically there were no free shards back then so this whole shard is not era accurate, maybe we should all pack up and leave.
Or maybe people should stop whining and enjoy the fact Derick and staff are taking the time to organize fun events for us so people can actually enjoy playing the game instead of farming the same old spots, macro reagent buying and so on.
I don't see the correlation that this ruins era accuracy. Staff events have nothing to do with accuracy. If the staff wants to run an event with a plague on stable pets that is their choice just like the choices that OSI management made back then. We are not emulating any specific shard and only the game mechanics that existed during the time frame and era at that time. The staff here choosing their style of events in what ever shape or form is completely era accurate. This shard does not aim to replicate pyschological patterns of the OSI staff during this time period.Boondock_Saint wrote:It's a shard event to ruin era accuracy. But whatever.
