I was originally hyped up the game before release, but when I heard they were capping exp I cancelled my CE pre-order.
Fast forward to March of 2012, I see a CE at Gamestop for $30, I figure...what the ****, it's only $30!.
Buy it, and didn't really get into it that much.
Re-subbed a couple days ago, and I have to say...I'm immensely enjoying the game. I've met some really great people, and even found a linkshell (on Excalibur). I even had 99 levequests built up and got to 16 on my Thaumaturge in no time.
I'm so excited for 2.0! I really hope this game flourishes, because I love the world, and playstyle of it.
