I really don't get this hate towards instances. MMORPG.com now has an article "What we don't want in EQnext: Instances".
I don't know who this "we" is. People who never played EQ?
The best expansions in Everquest were the heavily instanced ones.
LDON-OOW (proving grounds trials+pizza instances)-DoN-DoD (amazing expansion, also the best looking one imo)
Let alone all the raid instances, which were actually a huge improvement over the mob ganking and drama caused on the server.
GoD group instances, one of the most fun and rewarding content you could find. Ask anyone what the most fun group content was and many will say LDON, DoD, MPG trials and the freeport Badge Arena battle. All instanced.
I have no idea why some people don't want instances. If done right, they are great.
