    Hi I been a PWI player for over 5 years. Recently ARC has become mandatory. I am not sure why so many seemed up set with it. It works. I am able to launch my accounts with no problem. I am soo sadden thou that PWI changed so much. Seems like too many people started using scripting to run charactors on auto pilot thus causing PWI to change the platform that was so attracting. These changes have nearly taken out the ingame coin that was really fun and with some hard physically work anyone could earn there way up. At first for me I was a loner and didn't mind it. As I met good people I became more interested in the factions. Its like a real family that would help with building charators. Then suddenly with a few thousand dollars in real money a person could join the game and be a top contender in just a few month. All the 4 years I had worked for really became nothing. In other games I spent about 30 a month. Up into a year ago I only spent about 400 American dollars. Realizing I was not going to afford to keep up I decided to put all my savings into my Gaming partner whom I married and now recently we have come together in the real world. I spent about 1200 dollars in the last year and we now are very powerful couple. Suddenly in the last 3 months it seems all the creeps are coming out of the closet and has become only a rated adult game for 15-20 years old teens. The staff don't seem to care if people are using out rages language and sexual harassment. I will continue to play but would advise parents to not let there under 17 year olds to play. It is possible but you have to black list a large group of players to keep it to PG. I hope they will fix that problem soon as people seemed to have become extremely upset and not playing as much.

    Arc makes things a hassle. I dumped PWI because of it. ARC is not optional.

    That is pretty cool! I haven't been following their news much lately because I haven't played their games as much as I used to.

    I'm still glad they're also on Steam tho.
