    Is "EQXIV" taken?

    So many haters, can't wait to read all the well written posts when eqnext getting nearer. It is going to be an awesome hater vs lover battle and not at all shadow any real conversation.

    I think the dev team would want to try get a name not containing 'Everquest' because they are trying to "make something completely different". Managment and sales will want to use Everquest because that name alone will sell copies.

    I am betting that 'Norrath' will be a part of the title in some way. I think "Everquest: Return to Norrath" as others mentioned is a very good prediction. Also they already started to hype under the name "Everquest Next", so completely changing the title at this point would cause confusion and not be a smart marketing move.. although SoE works in mysterious ways so :P

    Kind of like the summer of 2004, then?

    Here's the thing: it's kind of fun, early on, to snipe away at the hype already building up. Particularly when it's coming (so often) from guys who told us what a bad bad thing hype was for the last five or six (or more) titles.

    Themepark hype, that's badd-d-ddd. Sandbox hype, that's really ok :)

    Vaporware fan worship, that's baaddd-d-ddd. Smedley fan worship, that's really ok :)

    Omg MMORPG.com staff clearly pushing these GW2 articles down our throats, that's baaddd-d-dddd. Their obvious glee and oh-boy-EQN (fapfap) immediately following the Titan announcement, that's really ok :)

     

    All the same, as much as I like sniping away at obvious fanboy-isms, of any variety, particularly contradictory ones...I kind of hope EQN does all right. The industry needs another 'win'. On the other hand, skeptically suspect Smed, always, particularly in the vapor stages.

    Ever heard of EQ1 - in my 14 years of playing I don't think I've done more than 20 quests on my main.

    So when I think of Everquest, I dont think of a quest grinder, sorry.

    EQ Next sounds fine to me.

    It is always referred to as Next or EQN by all of the developers so I would not be surprised if the name stuck. You have had all of this build up and press with the "Next" name and they say they are trying to revolutionize the modern MMO, so it makes some sense to just leave it named Next.

    except EQ was neither themepark nor quest grinder.

    EQ1 = no catchy subgenre name

    EQ2 = themepark

    EQN = sandbox

     

    seems pretty fitting to keep the name to me

    I actually think EQ Next should stay

     

    Of course there is always Everquest 3: Everquest harder, Everquest with a Vengeance, A Good Day to Everquest or Live (Play) Free and Everquest
