It's funny, I've been there on and off since before the beginning. Nearly every MMO afterwards I've tried and always went back to AO, aside from EVE Online and City of Heroes which I still hold subscriptions to.

I'll say this though 7 years came quick, now we just need the graphical update SOON, and the new story arc that should have happened 2 years ago.
