@Nucleon "Have or had". Precisely. I at no point described EVE as the most successful MMO since 2003. I'm not aware of an MMO that was released prior to EVE that has as large a playerbase. Lineage 1 & 2 might be an exception, but then they draw their players from a very different market. Similarly, WoW's success has a great deal to do with it having discovered an untapped market, and as an EU player who plays on WoW's servers, I'd certainly say there's no reason for the segregation.

Admittedly, perhaps "best surviving" would be a better description. I'd wager EVE will be going strong long after LOTRO, EQ and EQ2 have closed their doors.

Anyhow, the point stands that segregation has, to my knowledge, never visibly benefited an MMO, while I can attest to regional segregation having lost various MMOs my money and probably many others'.

That glimmer of hope that you refer to is probably a little too late for many I think. Though I was new to EQ2 and just starting to make friends in game, those few people I did get to know have cancelled their accounts some of whom have been in EQ2 from the beginning.

Sorry SOE you seem to have already burned your bridges and are now attempting to throw water on the ashes that are left behind. Sad times for the EQ2 vets and I hope that you all find another place that you can call home :(

To put it blunt after many many years of custom from me Sony can go f@&k itself.
