Asheron's Call Celebrates 9th Anniversary

Asheron's Call was released on Nov. 2, 1999. Turbine and the AC community just celebrated the ninth anniversary of the game, which is an amazing milestone to reach.

This thread on the official AC forums demonstrates the MMORPG still has a dedicated following after nine years. Turbine had announced in the October release notes that "On Nov. 2, Asheron’s Call will celebrate its 9th anniversary. Make sure you are around that day for some special fun!" While many players expected a live event from that note, the evening instead consisted of the usual fireworks, disco opening and dispersal of anniversary shirts.

I am certain that Turbine is proud of the the game's ninth anniversary. In fact, AC community relations poster Frelorn states it in the thread. On the other hand, I can understand why players may have been disappointed with the in-game birthday celebration. In any case, congratulations to Asheron's Call, Turbine and the players for this momentous occasion. Frelorn's responses in the thread are copied below.
