Hey all,

It's uh -- been awhile...

Anywho. Does anybody know what the current state is with regards to character purges? Back in March I had contacted Kru and they gave a thumbs up on a restore. I got busy, didn't follow through, and I finally got around to putting a coupon on my account. I reopened my ticket, and suddenly they don't do them anymore.

Is there any info on if/when they will start? And also, what gives? Do they not want old players to return? sad.gif

Thanks,
Nin

Any given reason? Do they hate money? That's a bummer.

It seems pretty random when they decide to do them or not. Unfortunately they don't really announce when they will be doing them again. They just say when they are currently doing it. You could always ask them why, although you probably won't get a very good answer.

I'll keep an eye out. It's such a bummer because I messaged them back in Feb and they responded saying they were doing them, just put a coupon on my account. I never really followed up and forgot for awhile. And now they've stopped. It feels a bit like having lost a shoebox full of old photos. I can make a new character and enjoy the game and the people currently here, but the nostalgia and memories tied to my old character are really strong.

Ah well, maybe one day in the future.

That + Asheron's Call ending = sad.gif

It's interesting to see how our digital keepsakes/memories kinda fade.

Anywho...
Thanks smile.gif

I'll never understand a gaming company that takes the approach of "Nah, we don't want old players back." It's absolutely insane. Not the mention purges being arbitrary and ridiculous anyway. There's absolutely no reason whatsoever to need to purge, it's always been a contrived method of forcing registrations to bleed money out of a bad product cause people want to protect their nostalgia.

I hate KRU, I hate everything about them.

They said they aren't doing them AT THIS TIME and that they would announce when they were doing them again (if they are). I feel like, although Doctor's use of "indefinite" is accurate, it is a bit too strong. We all know the Nexus ebbs and flows--sometimes faster than other times.
