I don't understand why you can't leave the servers open. Lots of people want them open but it's so hard to wait! Is there a private server I can join?
The game is still being created. Yes, there's enough it can be played, but adding the rest can't be done while
it's being played. More towns, more creatures, more things to shop for, more quests...
We are lucky that a game that's just entered alpha-development stage has been made available at all. Most aren't seen outside of screen shots before Beta, and then only to selected testers.
