Most definitely, this is a slap in the face for the people who said that RSCAngel would fail! One year online, now that's something to be proud of!
For people who haven't played this server yet- it would be a good idea to do so. You'll find few other servers with such great staff, and there's a lot of stuff going on "behind-the-scenes" to make the gameplay more enjoyable for you, the players!
Don't be thrown off by the recent downtime, this is a great server.
