Towns deux
You know, it seems like every time I leave Gaia for a bit, when I come back they have done something incredibly stupid. This time it’s the towns. You know how they say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? Well this is a perfect example of that.

The towns,
Our lovely Gaia towns,

Are being deleted.

Of course they tried to make it sound all sweet by saying they’re being retired, but unless I can go visit them at the old folks home the towns might as well be dead.

They are “retiring” the towns, because they have finally decided to force us all to use their new shitty towns, oh so cleverly named Towns 2. (Which might I add will make absolutely no sense in a month or two.) This upgrade (if you could call it that) is not only completely pointless, but more of a downgrade than anything. The towns now have crappier art and graphics, going in the water makes it look like your character is stuck halfway under the ground pulsating energy waves, and you move like someone decided that concrete shoes are the new Nike. I was absolutely fine with them creating Towns 2, it gave somewhere for the mentally inept to hang out, enjoy lead filled shoes and such, but forcing everyone to use it is like saying “Here is a free bracelet for anyone who wants one!” But then when not enough people are taking your stupid bracelets you say “******** choice, it’s the law now.”
