Normally I'd write something like "it was fun while it lasted"... I actually didn't really have fun on this server except for the first week...
This server could have been great if different decisions were made when they first launched, and it's not like people didn't express their concerns.
I had my concerns aswell (especially on the hard exp). But there was the hype, and the admins that seemed pretty confident when launching so I actually bothered to try it out. Cause well, this one "would be different", not.
To me it looks like they had their own view on how a "perfect" server should look like in theory but they never asked the public or did some "market" research. If they did, they would have known that these servers have no potential.
Maybe they thought their server would be different and in dutch we have this saying "if u don't try, u don't win". But not the case here, just another proof that succes is not always for the boldest.
After all the negativity... still want to thank them for all the effort they put into it. They did it for us, just too bad it didn't work out, so not many people seem to appreciate their work.
