That sucks. On how you worked hard on leveling your kindred. Just for them to bring out cooler ones. I wouldnt even bother with it anymore either.
I miss ZOMG!!! I got a few friends from in there. We would go and kick those creatures butts and stuff together lol.
And back then it was easier to make friends cause LOTS and LOTS of people was on gaia back then.
But, we'l get there.
