They seem to be being rather open about what's happening, which is refreshing. I tend to be more inclined to forgive a transgression when you're honest about what happened, why, and what you're doing to fix it.

I was wondering if this would be more of a ploy to get people to login to there accounts so they might have a pretty good mark of how many people will be playing once the new expansion is released.
