TO continue your comments about server typesYou mention STO as a single 'superserver' model (quite correctly ofc) however this introduced HUGE problems for a worldwide mmo. I did indeed play STO (being a long term ST fan), and stuck it out until I had 2 federation and one Klingon max lvl toon.But it was dire. The so called 'rubberband' effect killed any sort of enjoyment for me. Imagine - there I was, I cruised over a complete sector, to land on a planet I had a quest on. After 5 mins waiting for me to beam down, the game finally decided to catch up with me. I was moved at a stately pace BACKWARDS accross the whole sector. Yep I ended up after 15mins of play EXACTLY where I started from when I left the earth base. As the only european playing in my fleet, i then asked around. Finally I found another european player. To find he also had the same problems.If I find a MMO with a 'superserver' rather than locally based servers - I for one will NOT bother with it at all.(As an aside I felt that STO was NOT upto scratch even without the lag effects - the graphics were cheesy - and the model one where you had to pay real money for in game benefits (although most were just graphical))Finally on topic - I am currently on a break - possibly perminent - depending on rl issues etc. Suprisingly enough, I too have played Fallout 3 (with nearly all achievements done - curse those 'get to lvl 20 as evil/balance/good' ones), I then did Oblivion (plus expansions), and im even resurrecting my Diablo 2+LOD, and warcraft3+ Frozen Throne on an old PC my work threw out and I repaired n reinstalled XP on.What will bring me back to WOW? - Only the people (Kit, Shen, Erik n Kattie particularly - many others also). The game is to be honest, a little tired, in spite of many shakeups (or more probably Im tired of the style of the game), but the people can be gold!
