    The alternatives are better managed because their levelling speed is faster? How does that work?

    People are happier when they can level up. It's more just the perception that it's run better because players actually accomplish stuff.

    I dunno. I've never experimented with these alternatives. But it'd at least be a bigger incentive to the "I want level 99 and I don't want to spent 2 years doing it" crowd (i.e. almost everyone except the Koreans).

    Man, I love atlas park. I wish Villains had an equivalent. The starting zone is so boring, no one ever hangs out there like they do in Atlas. I don't think I've ever seen a Villain Costume Contest.

    Please tell me there are missions where you go into the instance and it is Atlas Park where you get to go stomp on some "Heroes" holding a Costume contest.

    Yeah, but from what I've heard, Gravity has an atrocious public relations image. I'm skeptical that came from it taking too long to level up.

    I think the point was that the alternatives appeared better because leveling was easier, not that Gravity was bad because leveling was slow.

    However, Gravity did also have atrocious customer support for English speakers. How hard is it to find someone who speaks English well AND Korean? It was rather disappointing. My college roomate from Korea spoke English very well, did gravity just not even try?

    Could also be the rampant botting in the official servers because people hated leveling. So in a way, slow leveling may have actually been the crux of the problem.

    No, the original point was that the alternatives were better run (ie, managed) than the official one. Which has nothing to do with levelling speed, but much to do with customer relations, which you just confirmed was shit on the original servers.

    They were better run. There was active bot hunting, a leveling and loot modfier of 2-3x that seemed just right, server wide events and the communitys weren't too massive so there was some actual competition in WoE (from what I hear WoE on the real servers came down to a super guild just holding them all).

    Before BC came out I took control of a a friend's account. I even changed all the contact info to match my own account's. I even went so far as to send an email to blizzard asking "Can I take my friend's characters and transfer them to my account since he doesn't want them anymore?". What did they do? Nothing at all.

    But you have your warnings, and you've made your choice. Best of luck!
