I think LAF2 is talking about Mercenary being banned, not NYboy75

I think the render is not correct in perspective. If I am right, WTC2 is going to be 411 meters tall. That's is in the point of the diamond the same hight aas WTC's rooftop. The render shows it differently.

Such a good thing to see that the skyline is getting back to where it was ... I was missing that corner of lower M'tan being tall but this one is sure going to bring it back to where it was.

So excited to see WTC 2 getting built. Its simply on a different level to the other towers in terms of architecture.
