    Definitely.

    If you plan to depo $100/100/700SEK or more, and you have the time to wait for the PED for a bank transfer to go through (*), use it.

    Sorry for the late response, but a few months-or-so ago I got a "Daily Hunter" mission to kill 50 Chirpy. That would be a breeze you think, right? I mean, in the VU9/10 time frame you'd just zip to...

    No, the context is quite clear. I was very restrictive with my criticism against MA, why I also don't think I'm taking it too far. Provided that's what you referred to.


    I hope you are right. I...

    It's good to see shit like this getting sorted out, and also displaying there are honest and honorable persons in EU. I'm also cautiously optimistic about MA's new customer service attempt.

    Nope, quite the opposite.

    MA had to walk through the "main" db to see what every participating avatar's inventory was before the event, then after.
