I sure hope the current runes are transferred to Pox2. After all, the best part is the artwork, and it would be a shame to lose it all. Pox2 should just be a graphics update, with better maps and realistic conditions, such as random weather and natural disasters. Having random generating maps would be a plus as well. Then keep the current runes with their artwork, update the sprites, and update the statistics to match the Pox2 rules. If Pox2 does come out, most likely shutting down Pox1 would be coming soon after. There is just too much amazing artwork to lose it all. Maybe before it is shut down they can release a stand-alone version of Pox1, or just keep it going on Steam. SOE created Everquest (EQ) then later release EQ2 and they are both still running. There were plans to create another Everquest called Everquest Next, but it appears to have stalled as far as I can tell since they changed to Daybreak Games. But SOE burned me before by shutting down Pirates and Star Wars Galaxies along with their SWG CCG. I asked at the time if we could get some sort of compensation for other SOE titles, but it never happened. It was just money down the toilet. At least I could (and have) create a SWG EMU server. I have also created an EQ EMU server. But I think the Pirates data is gone for good, which is a shame.
