So basically we were lied to when we were told that we could keep all of our pre-release progress once the game went live. Oh we get to keep it, but it is relegated to essentially a "Cheater's mode" which we will be unable to use with any new players. Got it. Thank you Chromatic for wasting literally hundreds of hours of my life. I have been a fan of the Dungeon Defenders franchise since the launch day of DD1 and over the years have purchased every expansion and character available and put thousands of hours into both DD1 & DD2 however based upon how you have chosen to handle this, I will NOT be playing DDA any longer, nor will I be recommending this game to my friends and family.
