    I'm confused.  I've played this game and many others.  The developers always reasoned against flight due to bypassing content.  Is that no longer an issue or was it never really a good excuse to begin with?

    Flying mounts already been in for quite a while so it doesn't really matter anymore.

    But yeah, it is one of the things they done because people complained that Wow had it already. They also did add 2 really lame "dynamic events" in the last expansion even though they just were stuff that scaled and triggered every 2 hours.

    EQ2 have gotten more and more desperate lately, or I can't be 100% sure of that since I havn't played since my guild quit after Sonys servers got hacked last year but it surely seems so.

    Aion? SOE has gotta be trolling at this point

    I just started playing this game again yesterday and I can honestly say I'm having a lot of fun. It's different than last time I played it and has quite a few people online (I think when I created my character it had 4 heavy / full servers). I got into a dungeon group at 20 in litterally 20 seconds, and just all in all having a really good time. I don't know if they are getting more desperate or not, but I'm surely staying with this game.

    Wow, that's some ugly stuff... This game doesn't deserve the EverQuest name. Flying? Come on.

    Kids will like it though.

    It's not often that an existing MMO introduces a feature that puts a smile on my my face for whatever reason, but I'm now going to download the game and get my credit card out. Awesome. Hehe

    This is just too sad. This game has just continued down the slippery slope to more and more over-the-top WoWification. Bigger, and bigger tackier, and tackier.... Hope they don't make EQNext all WoW-ified over-the-top (but they probably will).

    If they wanted to make the game any more laughable they have done that.

  • ArkainArkain Tampa, FLPosts: 490Member Uncommon

    I like them, and I'm 45. 

    Look flight has been in for some time now, and you still can not use them tell 85 (this is the normal flight level) so your not passing any content, as well you should know that this is NOT the first winged flight in EQ2. There are 3 races that can atain winged flight with out the wings in the video, so it is not any thing new or difrent, just fluff.

    I'm of the belief that if players want a feature that allows them to bypass content, then that is their choice.  The more you force people down the linear path, the less likely they are to stick around.  Why should the developers care if people bypass content they don't want to do?  If it means they're happier doing the things they actually want to do, they'll stick around longer, putting more money into the game.  It's a win / win for all parties concerned, yet developers get this prideful stance when players desire or figure out ways to play the game their way instead of the developer's way and they get all huffy and puffy about it.

    That's why I find it slighty ironic that after all of the denials for flight and the reasons for it, they decide to add it in anyway(only too little, too late for my tastes), making all of their past arguments a joke.  Not surprising really, SOE has been a joke in my book for a long time now.

    It's the same with the Beastlord.  For you years it was no way blah blah blah.  It was a banned topic on the forums, and then bang, "hey we can make money off of this."  *lightbulb*

    I don't have a problem with flight so much as I do they SoE tacks on thing to the game without even a semblance of cohesion or overarching design plan.

    And to the GP, I'm not sure what three races had flight before this.  Did they add 3 races that could fly in the last year?  Do sparkly vampires fly?  That statement was quite surprising.

    SOE didn't "take it over" Verant was created by SOE's 989 studio back in the 90's and "spun off" into its own subsidiary.  Smedly was behind EQ from the beginning.  Verant was a brand of Sony not its own entity.  Smedly hired McQuade and everybody else responsible and "guided" its production.  People do like to talk about this because it is fun (and justifiable) to bash SOE and Smed.  But EQ was SOE from the beginning just under a different brand.

    +1 This exactly.

     

    People can complain about the game being WoWified or the RMT aspect of it but they cannot deny this is just an amazing feature that was added. Players have been asking for this for years and now we fininally got it.

     

    The nay sayers need to lighten up and live a little.

    fortunately my point still stands, the original verant team left around shadows of luclin and the series ever since has become about churning out expansion after expansion year after year, charging for each (when most mmo's make these free content updates). SOE has always been about nickel and diming though, having cash shop into its subscription based game long before freemium became the new thing

    Your point was that the name was tarnished when SOE took over, SOE was always there, your point doesnt exist, nice backtracking though.

     

     

    Apparently stating the truth in my sig is "trolling"
