Well said, but I was also thinking. You remember that feat to invite people? That may have been our all of nothing thing, sadly. of course we didn't know, we got angry about it and whatnot, but I think if we (the players) actually knew, we wouldn't have protested like we did.

    Agreed. Had I known it were more so a necessity than an attempt to emulate Zynga's business model, I would've reacted differently.

    True, there was that, and hind sight is always 20/20, had we of known we would of reacted different to it. People also reacted negatively to the twitter and Fb share buttons. However at the time both things seemed like push out of knowwhere, and we were given no hint that the game really did need our help and to spread the word. I would of hit the Social networks like crazy had i of known, but as for invites, the few ppl that i knew that might possibly be interested had been invited long ago, i had no one to invite from reality. But there were way too many things backing up that the game was flourishing. New content, new lands, new collectibles, Feats, new furniture, and the game had just went to open beta, and there were new ppl coming in all the time. Theres just nothing that gave us any real indication....sorry to say but there really wasn't.

    I know I wouldn't have protested. i thought about that after the fact, and I think it sucks that that one terrible, terrible feat might have been their push to find out if they could find other players. They could have found other fans who were willing to pay: i don't believe that the only people they could possibly find were the group of us they already had.

I can't say I would have reacted differently. Then again, I felt the comparisons to Zynga were over the top and uncalled for. But I did not participate because quite simply, I do not have friends that would have reacted positively to unsolicited invites, and I had already invited those that were interested. I did talk to one friend that I thought of and asked, but he was too busy and would not have ever tried anyway. He said maybe late December. And then, you know, buh-bye.

    I agree wholeheartedly! I could have invited my hubby, and he would have accepted, but he would never have become a subscriber, and likely would only have logged in when I wanted him to help me with something.
