November plans?Follow

Ok, the news is effective 11/1/12, no more data will be saved on SE's end and the game shuts down 11/11/12 at midnight Pacific Time. Indications are SE will not be charging for November either, not that it would be feasible on their end (charging for feats that won't be logged/recorded). So, what do people plan to do after that final saving of data for those 10 days?

Do people plan to:
- Not play at all because nothing will be recorded?
- Plan to play normally because they enjoy the act of playing even though it won't be logged?
- Plan to play but do things differently? If so, what?

Anything interesting people plan on doing?
Somewhere out there, there is a road with 2 signs on it. One says "No Trespassing". The sign right next to it says "FREE KITTENS".

Personally, I will likely stop playing. I do enjoy the game, but my free time is limited enough without the game, so knowing I won't make any progress during that period is enough motivation to not log in. If I were to log in at all, I'd likely do so purely to chat with the LS before the servers go down.

Someday soon my friends, this ride will come to and end, and we can't just get in line again.

Those extra 10 days are most likely to provide a buffer zone/leeway for people who are unable to shwo up for the final event on Nov 1st.

Think about how disappointed you would be to miss it because you couldn't connect or something happened to your internets.

I'm picturing the following scenerio:

You log in, and do the quest, which undoubtedly involves Louisiux, as we saw from the 2.0 trailers.

At the end of us, he does his super awesome magic that saves you from Meteor.

Credits roll. You can no longer log in with that character because you've completed the final scenario.

The reason I believe this is the following quote regarding playing after Nov. 1st:

If we brought the servers back online, you would, however, need to ignore the inevitable story contradictions. Considering these factors, players that have an active subscription as of September 30, 2012, would play for free.

Can anyone clarify this for me? Do they mean that anyone with an active subscription starting September 30, 2012, will be able to play for free until the servers shut down?

If your subscription goes passed that date, you can keep playing.
