Another 30 days have passed and it is time to vote again on whether or not to unlock the Desert of Flames expansion on the Stormhold time locked expansion server… and the Deathtoll PvP server as well, though I don’t have any characters there, so won’t be voting there.
Last time around I was actively encouraging people to vote against the unlock, the server having only been up for 30 days. That seemed like way too short a duration to enjoy the original 50 levels of content.
This time around I am voting against the unlock again.
However, I do not feel as strongly about it, for the most part because I have not been playing much in the last 30 days. I never ended up finding somebody to play with… the obvious target, Gaff, who got me to buy the game back in 2004, picked up EVE Online again just as the server went live… and other games have filled the gap.
So as much as I would like the server to sit and wait until the time was ripe for me, it won’t be a personal tragedy if the whole thing moves on to another expansion.
But I am still voting against. The vote runs through the weekend, closing at noon on Tuesday, with results expected shortly thereafter. To vote you just have to log on to the server and check your in-game mail.
