I haven't bought SL yet, and based upon everything I've heard, I won't anytime soon.
Everything I hated about EQ, they fixed in AO.
SL seems to have adopted everything I hated about EQ again. So I'll ignore it.
There's enough here on Rubi-Ka for me. Maybe in a year, SL will be worth playing. Right now, I'm not even going to bother with it. The Fixer perks certainly aren't worth paying money for.
Yes, I realize SL is only $19.95 as a download. Pretty cheap and inexpensive. But I'd rather not award Funcom for mediocrity.
(I'm also annoyed that in a bid to sell SL, they made the Keeper the new uber profession. Profits before game balance. And to make the Keeper that much more viable, they had to gimp the Fixer profession in the process. Keeper's are pretty much the new Fixer's of SL).
