Release Day Plans?

    Many of you have already flamed me for planning time off, but who cares? I love playing Everquest. Period.

    But, to address the one point that a couple brought up, here's more insanity.

    The first day or two of any release is aIways a problem. So, I would be wasting my vacation time on them, if I could not fully utilize the time playing and instead, sitting, waiting for the servers to come back up after a crash. Fortunately, I already have a solution for this problem.

    I have had a long term problem with my nose that surgery can solve. I have put the surgery off for many years because, well, I hate surgery with a passion. But, over time, the issue has gotten unbearable for much longer. So, with EQNext's release, I get to solve two problems with one stone.

    Once the release date is planned, I will schedule my surgery for 2 days before the release. This way, I can use sick leave (instead of vacation time) recovering from the surgery, while still claiming my names, character appearances, server choices, etc. Maybe even the starting areas if I am lucky. Doing this on pain killers will lighten the misery of the constant crashes and the game will help keep my mind off the surgery pain. Then, after the 2nd or 3rd day of launch, I will be ready to start my actual vacation time and enjoy the game fully for the next month of vacation.

    All in all, pretty good plan. Damn game better be as promised and worth it! I guess I will know for sure after 8/2/2013.

    We'll see when it's supposed to release. I won't be taking the day of release off that's for sure. Day 1 server issues are all but certain. Depending on if it's released the end of this year or early next will make a big difference. I won't take time off early in the year for it, but if I have some extra PTO at the end of the year I'd consider, especially if I can use a day or two and turn it into a long weekend with Christmas or Thanksgiving in there with it.

    Played: EQ1 (10 Years), Guild Wars, Rift, TERA
    Tried: EQ2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic and countless others...

    You are a very trusting person. I wouldn't trust Smedley if he told me the sky was blue.

    IMO, you are more likely to spend your time off reading the whining on these forums when the release is pushed backed than actually playing the game.

    Yes, you are a Smedley and EQ hater. You have made it clear in every post. The bandwagon is old and you are trying to be the new captain.

    Doesn't mean the rest of us have to follow you.

    No I would never take time off to play an MMO , much more important things in life then a game. Although a wonderful past time lifes to short to just live and breath for a game.

     

    My Wife and friends and travel are much more important.

    I'm going to play Crusader Kings 2 on the day of release. I kind of don't care for inevitable glitches, half-playable games and all that nerve-wrecking stuff anymore.

     

    I'm going to wait couple of weeks, while the most glaring problems are removed, watch some gameplay videos, read some forum whines (and there would be whines, trust me. The game may give people blowjobs and people would still whine...), and may be decide that I'm going to play it. Or may be not; the way it's going I don't have any kinds of high hopes for the game.

     

    But one thing I'll not do is trying to play the game on release.

    You just made my day! :D

    You know you're an EQ fan when you're planning your entire life, even your health, AROUND EQNext.

    I will be watching all the people whining and bitching the game is unstable or they can not get into the login server, etc

     

    Then maybe by that next weekend it will settle down and I will give it a go.
