<p>Alaplaya team anounced this yesterday in their website:</p><p>"ProSiebenSat.1 Games and thus alaplaya will publish and promote the following high-quality games exclusively for Europe:  <strong>DC Universe™ Online</strong>, <strong>EverQuest® II</strong>, <strong>Star Wars®: Clone Wars Adventures™</strong>, <strong>Free Realms®</strong>, <strong>Magic: The Gathering - Tactics®</strong>, <strong>Pox Nora®</strong>, the upcoming <strong>PlanetSide® 2</strong> as well as a brand-new installment of the<strong> EverQuest® saga</strong>."</p><p><a rel="nofollow" href="http://en.alaplaya.net/forum/alaplaya-news-f1445/announcement-new-cooperation-t485688.html" target="_blank">http://en.alaplaya.net/forum/alapla...on-t485688.html</a></p><p>Why hasn't SOE made an announcement to their playerbase yet? If this is true, (I'm still hoping this is a bad joke), how does it afect the already existing European playerbase? Will we still be able to play on our current servers? Will we keep our expansions and upgrades we bought with SC  if not or will we lose it all like alaplayers custumers did recently with the "revamp" of their own game "Loco online"? They lost basically everything they had bought in shop in the previous version.</p><p>Too many questions, I know, but if this is true, much more needs to be explained.</p>

I mean, it is not like I have spent £1000 + with SoE in the last 7 years</p>
