Also I actually did not expect anyone from paradox to even read any of this thread, even less respond. So yeah - proved me wrong there, nice
edit: Also I don't think Pdox sucks at marketing or anything. It's more of an "was there even any marketing for dl?" thingy.
edit2: The timing of this decision also seems peculiar, considering that it felt like dl was currently regenerating its user base, with this era being the most active one since a long time. Including a steady pvp activity with acceptable waiting times in the DG. Atleast from what I've seen and heard, so it comes as quite a surprise to pull the plug now.
