I played pox a few years back (from the time it went to SOE, then DOG), and just recently rediscovered it on Steam so I downloaded it. Could've sworn last time I looked at Pox it was either shut down or about to be, so I was excited to see it still had life. Now, I doubt anyone will remember me--I was never any good and mostly stuck to single player. (Just in case anyone does remember me, my ign is Meatsock) I played for a good long while, spent some monies on some runes, and tried most of the themes by trading with PoxBox. Now, coming back, I immediately notice the new client (not terrible, but not great either), new(ish) runes that have come out since I played last, and the population. Which was never great to begin with, but seems to have little but the usual suspects that I remember from my time with Pox. No matter to me, as long as Pox is still alive. None of the negatives are pushing me away from Pox; I loaded up my old UD BG and jumped in--and was immediately hooked again. There is nothing like Pox Nora, and I suppose I've been subconsciously searching for it for some time as Pox scratches an itch no other game does, even if you suck like me and fear treading into multiplayer and showing off my lack of skill. Having said all that, I know in the past I had done so much trading with PoxBox to test bgs and themes, and I know that site is no more (is there anything to replace it??). Other than my UD bg I also found a terrible SP slag deck which I must have been experimenting with at the time I finally left Pox. A few loose runes here and there, a bunch of untradeable IS runes (where the heck did they come from? IS is my least favorite faction, and even when I did dip into them I stuck with constructs) and that's it. Looking over my collection, I am fairly certain approximately half of my total value of runes was lost somewhere, and I can only assume I had left them in PoxBox credits. So it IS disheartening to have to build up my collection again. But Pox is still Pox, and Pox is still the best. So hello everyone!
