BTW, before you continue whining about Matrix, maybe you should attempt to remember that AE originally was meant to require ownership and installation of stock WitP, but because of the pressure of players, Matrix removed that requirement, delaying release of the final product.
Matrix has bent over backwards to accomodate you, so you might show a little bit more gratitude.
I was properly grateful for that - I bought AE after already buying WitP.
Shrug. I support Matrix, in the same way as I support Paradox - I buy their games and publicly praise them on other networks. But neither publisher is perfect, nor are their games. What they (collectively) are, is the best around - so I'll continue to support both of them by buying their products and praising them, while at the same time I'll continue to ask for features I'd like to see, or ones which used to exist and don't any longer. I see no conflict in that, and especially no ingratitude.
