In yet another epic example of player support, Cryptic have announced a change to the Leadership profession.
For those not familiar with the game, Leadership tends to be the main profession as it gives Astral Diamonds (the in-game currency). As is the norm with these things, the rewards increase as the higher the Leadership rank.
You can have more than one character, and all these can level the Leadership profession - so players where doing this for the AD returns - and have been since day one.
But not anymore.
Cryptic have announced a removal of the AD return from the Leadership profession - which has not gone down at all well with the player base (that is about as mildly as I put it).
A more accurate description would be a sh*tstorm of epic proporttions.

32 pages at the time of writing - and rising.
A while back the terminally awful module 6 lowered the player population. It will be a question - not if this change has the same effect - but if in fact it will surpass even Mod 6's disastrous effect on player numbers.
