I am a founder too. I did leave the game for a bit, but it wasn't because the game was bad. The OP is completely a bore, just like he explains about this game.
I came back to play the game again, because I wanted to and because a friend of mine was expressing interest and he just bought and subbed to this game. Not because I am hoping there will be something different from when I stopped my sub. I stopped it mainly because my whole guild just quit, and I was a little down from that. I come back, and the guild bank is untouched for months, so I am slowly draining it.
Sweet. Can I haz some?
