I've been at a hiatus gaming wise for a while, very bored. Googling along the lines of "Next big full loot MMO" eventually got me here.
I nearly skipped past CoE due to the real lack of material out there. An hour reading this forum sold it to me though. Whether the game turns out to be as good as the communities desire to make it work remains to be seen, but it has the best vibe about it that I've felt for a long time.
