You have to understand that some people don't want to "let it go". All because a majority of you stopped playing this game long ago or only log on now and then, doesn't mean shit to be honest. We get it, you guys stopped playing for whatever reason you want to come up with. You guys moved on to other games or maybe not at all.
For a lot of us, this is the only MMO that keeps us around these forums. It's the only MMO that keeps us tied together in a sense. Losing that aspect brings a lot of grief. Not even just the game itself but the memories, friends, countless hours spent playing. It's not that easy for people to accept it so soon. Nothing really "foretold" of this closure. Everyone keeps saying "lol saw it coming!" but lets be serious, no you didn't. You didn't see it coming THIS soon. You just made a generalization of it closing EVENTUALLY.
