UPDATE: Funcom is extending the re-evaluation offer for a limited time — no idea what this ‘limited time’ actually means . Good news for those who went on summer vacation and missed out on the offer.

Come Back to Hyboria!

A couple of weeks back I received an email from Funcom and here’s what it said:
