"The servers went down because we didn't pay the bill... I was at burning man."

This doesn't sound good at all.

"...our ISP pulled the plug for non-payment, which was expected." So... they purposefully used an ISPs service without the intention of paying for that service?

I'm not sure that's something they should advertise. And it's certainly a crappy way to do business.

They're a bankrupt company, so there's no way to 'do business' at all. The game itself is being bought.

True enough, but they still continued to use a service they knew they couldn't pay for until the ISP took it away.

Whoever is buying the game may still have that image attached to EE to deal with when they begin service.

Time will tell.

I doubt that wherever you work asks you to personally help pay the bills of the company. :)

First order of business for the new company: add elves and humans to the game.

No. The only people who want elves in the game are sex-starved geeks who want something to ogle. EE is a kids game.

@ Raze EE has very detailed lore and a historic timeline for the creation of it's races. There is room in the lore for humans, but not necessarily as a playable race. Elves? Not really.

@ Amar Regarding the elves comment, you're an idiot. On top of that, EE is not a "kids game". Yes, with the graphics and anthropomorphic creatures it will appeal to kids, but it's not designed for them. It doesn't have sophisticated filters, parental controls, the quests tell you to "kill" creatures, etc.. The in-game moderators doe try to keep the chat family friendly, but that's about the extent of it. The player base, represented by a small, non-scientific demographics survey I did, is mostly 18+. http://bit.ly/b9Qh1q

Sarcasm, dude.

Look at my post history and you'll know where I stand on PC races in MMO's.

That being said, I genuinely would not be surprised if some human-like race found itself in the game.

I'm with Raze on this. The lore is very detailed blah blaah blaaah. If the new ownership thinks that adding humans, elves, and monkeys will bring in the cash, expect to see it in the game.

Burningman? Damn hippies. That's what happens when you let hippies handle the important stuff. It all goes to hell.
