this 51/50 isn't a bad idea because now there can be two seperate games going on. Previously it probably revolved too much around the endgame- this idea and people can start new characters on a whim knowing it's not as far as from level 1 and it fuels the low 50s game (which has some of the best zones for choice) as well as the progressing endgame..

im not saying anything bad about the new 51/50 server but personally i would rather start from lvl 1 and enjoy the game instead of it being handed to me halfway.

I would say this ideology is more indicative to 'new gen' players, for me as an 'old school' player this is just the 'hurry up and have fun' mode that started the whole craze.

hmm there will be continued resentment of this server when it was still quite bizarrely chosen over the progression server. Though I did read a new progression server is still coming.
This is where people are grouping and lfg atm:

The server sure appears to have attracted a good sized crowd. I've heard other returning players say they use this server to test out classes, so they know which ones to create on the regular servers. There's plenty of good use for Mayong it seems.
It's been over a week now and the server is still very busy, so I'm guessing people like the idea of this server and it isn't just a launch day "let's go check it out" phenomenon. It's also good to see that folks enjoying PoP+ content, contrary to what others may have said about people quitting after PoP. I think it really helps having others to group with, like the good 'ol days.
I spent nearly three hours rearranging my spell book, LOL. I was using old saved screen shots. It took quite a while.
Im still wondering if I should try out the new server. I've never really gotten a chance to play EQ very much for various reasons, and maybe this would be enjoyable. How're things going now?
Busiest server so far, seems to be growing actually as compared to the first week. Still tons of people grouping and raiding.
Server is still Busy with tons of groups popping up. Just if you can't find one make one there is always LFG people. Zones i have noticed people in, in my travels
and guilds are killing raid mobs everyday server messages never seem to stop =P
If anyone wants to group up or something send me a PM. Or if you're willing to answer my endless questions that would be cool as well. lol
I find myself wanting to return to EQ and this seems like a great time to do it, but everytime I do the trial I get stuck on how wonky the cam is, and not being able to free look with my left mouse button.
I wish they could make these controls the same as what is standard now in almost every MMO. At least they could offer the same cam and free look options as EQ2 does.
If they fixed this or updated this I would resub in a heartbeat.
