So like the topic says, I just returned to this game after a year of being away.
When I first started the game, it was absolutely HORRIBLE. It lagged like crazy everywhere... there was nothing much to do. Not many people were working together etc etc. You guys know the list, I could go on and on.
I've been back for a week now, and I have to say I'm very impressed with the direction they're going. I play on a macbook 1.5 years old, and before i had to run the game on all the lowest settings, now I can bump them up quite easily to all the medium level settings and the game looks amazing. It seems like they've corrected a lot of issues with interface etc.
I for one am impressed with the improvements they've made, and now truly have hope that they're moving in the right direction.
