You posted for months that we were kool till the 27th. HOW DARE YOU
Despite the OP's anger and/or rage for retribution at SOE-EQ devs. He/she is correct in that the SOE message as you log in said that "the Anniversary Events" were being extended thru May 26th 2013. This did not happen as stated..
In 20/20 hindsight, SOE should have left all anniversary events until May26th as the fallout is not worth it from the devs or playerbase's point of view. Especially groupers and recently returned players who this ninja move hurts the most..
