You know, it is quite interesting:
I can't say that I particularly hate anyone in this world, even those that are 'red' on my map.
Like it or not, most of us have been playing together for years and we are kind of a family. In particular, I'd say a redneck family, but a family nonetheless.
I remember when I first started playing this game, I was taken under the wing of a much larger player and grew quickly...but there have been a lot of people that have left since then.
I'm with Jezuz up there--once they close this world, it is unlikely that I will play an online game again. I started playing this as a way to get off playing World of Warcraft...
