I would argue that they have a high probability of [Removed for Content] off a large percentage of players who spend alot of time on the forums, which is a low percentage in general; and hence the majority of players won't care.I agree that they don't have a perfect record, but I am still confident that this change will be for the best, and that after it goes live a few people will kick up a stink, but most of them will secretly keep playing in the background and enjoy the changes. Those who are truely outraged by the changes will simply move onto another game, in turn the changes will bring others back.

EQ2 is just a game you know, if you are not enjoying yourself and you feel like your time is being invested instead of enjoyed, then perhaps it is time for you to move on to another game, or to perhaps re-evaluate wether you should be playing games like this.

After all, both are amateur leagues, both are sports.  You shouldn't be so [Removed for Content], should you?

Darn right I would be annoyed, and if SOE turned EQ2 in to a First-Person-Shooter I would be as annoyed... but what SOE is doing is absolutely not on the scale of what you are suggesting. You will probably have to re-adjust your stratergies, ect, but they certainly aren't changing the format of the game.
