     Man this was my first real MMO (earth and beyond didn't count).  I absolutly loved this game!


    Still remember getting chased around by the GOT training people in The temple of the winds.

    You see, every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with their surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You spread to an area, and you multiply, and you multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet.-Mr.Smith

    Temple of the Winds was lovely. Especially for trolls, I guess.

    Good to see AO still kind of alive, but I wish FC focused on it a bit more. It could've been great, but the focus on AoC killed it.

    I played this game from 2002 to 2005, when i quit back in 2005 they were already talking about an engine upgrade.  This is Funcom running joke.

    AO has always been such an under-rated game.  It was amazingly innovative for its time, and invented a lot of the features that have become "standard" features and technology of the mmorpg genre.  Like AoC after it, AO suffered from one of the worst game launches in memory which really hurt it's fledgling player base, and caused the game to fall off of gamers' radar way too quickly.   


    So thank you, and Happy Birthday Anarchy Online.  Some of us still remember what you have done for us.  (and yes, I promise to log in again if you do ever upgrade your game engine)
