The next "true" Everquest.....

People are saying this is the spiritual successor to Everquest, more so than even Vanguard or Pantheon, and from the pre-alpha look of things, they have more of a game than Everquest Next ever had. Heres hoping that this game also features 1000s of Quests, so that we can "quest' Forever in the game. Heres hoping!

    im hoping for 0 quest and player driven fun!  hopfully its more of a UO pre Trammel successor .... but honestly if they achieve half of what they want too it will be much more than a UO or EQ successor

    Now I'm not quite sure, but Everquest wasn't really about developer created questing right, more a camp grinder with an occasional quest tossed in.

    I could care less about a successor to anything all I would like to see out of all these pre alphas is an actual game to come out. Here is hoping they all do and everyone is happy.

    That's how I remember it. Only a few quests worth doing throughout the whole game. The quests that were there took a lot of time for a piece of epic gear that lasted ages.

    Is Chronicles quest driven? Just heard about this game a couple days ago while browsing some Pantheon threads.

    Everquest  is group grind, not questing.

    There are no quests as the term is understood in most mmos by being "!" to pick up and "?" to complete that everyone follows and gets a predictable outcome.

    In CoE, the quests are whatever you, as a player, decide is a worthy investment of time with the hope, but no guarantee, of getting any positive outcome.

    It might turn out what you decide is your first quest ends up being the only quest you are on for the next real life year, maybe in search of something unique or pursuing the mastery of an ability, and your character permadies before ever completing your one and only quest. Or you could decide your quest for the day to is to stalk the extravagant trader that came to town briefly, but then left, to see where they return to. 

    That said, there will apparently be some overarcing storyline coming from Soulbound studios, but its entirely optional if you want to participate in the story. The player actions, or inaction, in influencing that story will change the world regardless.

    I would trust that the creator of Everquest could re-create Everquest better than the CoE devs. Just my take on it.

    I wouldn't say this is the succesor to eq. More like an attempt to revitalize MMORPG in a new direction. Sandbox MMORPG...

    I can't think of a single time I thought Everquest, in regard to anything I was hearing about CoE. It might have a harsh environment, any comparison essentially stops there though, I mean sure it's got fantasy, combat, things to kill, buttons.

    Well, what some of you guys are saying about quests in EQ is incredibly misleading.  EQ was jam-packed with quests all over the world -- they just weren't thrown in your face.  That, and you actually had to go looking for them.  The game had tons of quests in it.  Many just didn't have much in the way of rewards, so people didn't focus on them(in other words, they weren't like putting a quarter in the candy machine like WoW and others).

    Back on-topic:  I am with Distopia, don't really see much in the way of Everquest in this game.  Hopefully, it's a harsh and brutal/dangerous world, but beyond that...

    And, I'll echo what the turtle said -- I'd just like to see one of these bloody games release at some point.  How many big pre-alpha/alpha games are floating around now?  How many of them are likely to release before 2018? Sad how far away they all are.
