Oh come on, this should be a celebration. I know that last time it got rather hectic with thousands of newbs (who constantly point out that they are 'lvl 138 in real rs
' .. grr) running around asking questions, and I expect it's the same this time (haven't bought a PIN yet), but this will surely bring in a handful of new dedicated players ( or returning old ones ) who will play for a long time to come.
Unbelievable that you prefer the quiet... in the quiet there's never much to do, sometimes near impossible to find somebody for a decent stake. Just enjoy their company whilst they are still here, and try to convince some newbs to keep playing - then we might have a more active community over the next 6 months. Bribing them with iron armour and gold seems to help
