have made it very clear they will not cave on increasing the return on retirement,
or change retirement to allow credits to move to existing players. This was given no satisfactory
answer in the relevant forum thread and the question was diverted to 'read the forums' and 'e-mail
me' during the townhall, neither of which demonstrate a sincere willingness to listen to or respond
to the opinions of the playerbase, especially when several people discussing the problem were banned.
I personally do not believe that they intend to change their decision, but I am also extremely
dissatisfied with the blanketed response of 'Imperian isn't closing' to justify circumventing the
conversation in a public setting and dodge the opinions of those who do not frequent the forums. I
made this thread to open up the conversation among us without diverting attention from those with
more optimistic questions and opinions.
I speak for myself in stating that I feel these changes reduce the value of my character greatly,
especially since I personally do not want to participate in the transition of the game and would
expect to see more than 50% of my current value placed elsewhere in the company in light of these
changes. I am confused about the administration's unwillingness to allow me to make that choice and
especially their locking of retirement value well before anything but enthusiasm and optimism have
been offered in response.
