You'll see NGE servers about the time you see Andrew Jackson get elected as president again. They have said repeatedly that they will not, and have no idea of entertaining the thought of pre-NGE servers. As much as everyone clamors to have the game back to what it "was" it just won't happen the way they want. Here's why... Every NGE hater believes that pre-nge servers will bring back massive flocks of people that left at the implementation of the NGE. Newsflash for you this game lost a lot of subs when the CU was implemented, it lost a lot of subs when the NGE was implemented. Those people that left at the CU aren't coming back and a good deal, probably 60-80% of those that left at the NGE, aren't coming back either. Anyone that quit, has more than likely moved on to something else game wise, moved onto something else in life or doesn't want to invest the time into the game again. Pre-NGE servers, Pre-CU servers, etc etc all this kind of topic does is get people sidetracked from the real issue of improving the current game. The only way to do that is to focus wholly on the current game and dive into it 100%. As I mentioned before... everyone blames SOE, LA, etc.... some of it is their responsibility but just looking at what I see from the consumer base and the rabid desire to implement "improvements or great ideas" they were destined to fail from the beginning no matter who worked on the team, the publisher, etc.
