I'd pretty much kicked my EQ habit, but then they had to go and bring up a new server. Now I have Station Launcher downloading the game even as I type this. I'd intended to download overnight, but I went out and then forgot when I got home.
I am not going to get into the pros and cons of the 51/50 ruleset that was chosen by polling people already subscribed to the game. I've put in enough time that I don't feel too bad about starting at 51, especially if I play one of the classes that I am very familiar with already. I am pretty familiar with the game and know where to go for information, even if I choose one of the classes I haven't really played much before.
The server came up at 2pm EST. Just checked Twitter now around 3pm, and I see that Nagafen has been taken out already. I am not too surprised by that, nor am I upset that I wasn't there... I just want to play!
Off to watch my download progress.
