    Isn't it odd how most people will choose Britain Bank, but it still won't go back to how it was. :(

    Yup Brit bank and the forge area were very active way back when. We could always lay Luna to rubble like magicana was :rolleyes:.

    WBB, of course, but Moonglow and Vesper banks had top quality bank sitters too.

    There certainly used to be a lot of stuff going on around Moonglow bank in the good old days. We even had some kind of towns council and regular pk raids ... *sighs* ... now the town is empty and I met the first person in months on Moonglow island the other day: on a field waiting for pumpkins because the other places were all hogged. *sighs again*

    West Brit Bank fo' shizzle! The days of the rich and dare i say "Famous". Riding around on Nightmares with Black Blessed Sandles and Glacial Sticks.. Hemisphere sat in his usual place spamming to his Umbra shop. All the newbie tamers running around with literally Fleets of horses forsale. *grunts* I miss them darn times.

    I'd say a better reason to leave would be the gash decoration. Whoever allowed that **** to be put there needs the sack.


    I miss the good old days. Tamers by the moat selling mares and dragons.

    Bah let's all start hanging round at fel wbb for the nostalgia. Dont worry it's in gz people and insurance saves you from thieves!

    Of course one problem with a vote like this is - many new players just wont know so they cannot remember the good old days. Its the older players who have the nostalgia (including me). There is of course no way to show newer players the way it used to be so most of them will know (and vote for) Luna. Which is a pity because Luna is only a pale shadow of what used to be.

    My guess is when Luna gets invaded for as long as Britain did, which wont happen cos of all the houses there making the same type of invasion impractical.

    Was a massive shame, what happened to West Brit. That foolish Invasion..
    It looks silly to be crammed in some tiny room in Luna. Also, things there are too practical. Luna bank sitter doesn't " visit tailor" or " smith" anymore..he simply clicks em on edge of his screen whilst banksitting. It takes away certain impresion of moving, breathing and living city Brit was able to offer.

    Of course, with playerbase being somewhat diminished and Chat and That One Site being there to help people sell/buy their goods, I'm not sure I'd have heart to see Brit West " crowded" by defination we must use for that word today.
