I'm playing EQ2 on the Time Lock Server and having a blast. I'm only a level 8 but already I'm seeing a lot of group content, so I better learn how to make friends, join a Guild, figure out all the functions for the chat and finding groups using the social panel.
I better get involved so I can play with the formed groups I see around me. If I'll be truly committed to this game for awhile I better establish myself with the community for FUN and SURVIVAL...THIS IS WHAT AN MMO IS. Anything else is an abomination of the term.
An mmo is to be hard but with some easy stuff depending on the players mood during a play session.
I'm not just an Everquest, Vanguard or SOE fan. In fact back in the day I liked Vanilla WoW. I liked anything mmo, they were all good for different taste and styles.......Now I / we are reduced to just one. Again, all others are an abominations of the term mmo.
The up and coming " EQ Next " will be another fail with it's theme park crap, easy play and auto grouping along with its Free to play sellout.
" Final Fantasy 14 " is another sell out with its small zones, auto grouping, easy solo gaming and dungeon finder. It's nothing like Final Fantasy 11.....Is it popular right now ?.....I WOULD SAY NO, contrary to what this web site states, it's not. Just a few vocal loud posters, the populations are low and the game is forgotten by most. Populations have dropped deeply after the 30 day hype, and everyone got there story fill. What's left are the minority end game raiders........This is not an mmo, it a 30 day video game with others around you. Elitist Raiders do seem to stick around and post hard here on this site.
Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen could very well be a long awaited mmo. A game where it's best to establish yourself for FUN and SURVIVAL, with some solo stuff mixed in. Better, more 2015ish than a dated EQ2 and without the quirks, glitches and stale graphics.
Kind of like what you would expect in a modern Everquest 3
