    Amazing to see this game still getting content the way it does. Coming from a household that lived for EQ and then going in to EQ2 had some good times with my family playing it so its always going to be loved for me. Even tho daybreak has done some....things.

    If this game engine ran like WoW, it would be almost as successful today. The fact that it runs so badly it is an instant veto to most people who try it - even when it was new and nicely populated most people who tried it didn't have PCs that could run it well - YEARS after release.

    Imagine what it was like with 2006-era hardware (useless iGPUs for gaming, and lots of people on Pre-Core iSeries CPU, slower RAM and Hard Drives, etc.

    GPU almost doesn't matter with the EQ and EQ2 engines. Any decently modern iGPU suffices, because it's all about the GPU (how strong your cores are, since they aren't optimized for multi-core well - if at all).

    A lot of WoW's success is due to how well it ran on lower-end systems and the fact that Blizzard has much better developers than SOE/Daybreak.

    Yeah, that is why I don't play EQ2. Not only did the graphics age like crap, it looks like crap AND runs like crap. It doesn't even perform good at all...to compare to WoW just cause they came out roughly same time...WoW looks vastly better and runs vastly better lol.

    Which is a shame, cause EQ2 is pretty awesome. But wow does it perform bad. And it has so much graphical glitches where shadows disappear and reappear depending on what direction camera moves. That part might not annoy (some?) people, but graphical glitches like that are a pet peeve, only beaten by terrible pop-ins. But with how bad EQ2 looks, it should run a lot better.

    It's performance that is a problem to me. I have in i7/4790 and GTX970. I can run the game cranked up to max and get decent frames. If I turn of a couple things I get great frames (100+).

    It was a few design decisions and that my guild pretty much retired. I've thought about going back a few times but it never worked. I do miss my characters. I have a stable of Fae and they rule!

    Play off and on but get frustrated with the quest tracker and map. Their is a 3rd party map you can download but it just makes it worse. Wish they would over haul the map and tracker to something like Wow has.
