Basically what the title says. I've been paying attention to Everquest Next, as well as enjoying Planetside 2 (whose engine is the same for Everquest Next, so its going to look amazing) and I was curious if it would be worth it, being free to play and all, to go through Everquest 2, maybe learn the lore/story, and try and understand what made this game what it is/was back in the day. I tried to play it about a year ago, however at the time I made a character, jumped in and just shuttered at the idea of leveling in an environment that was all too familiar to me(the area I started off in was some frozen place, and it just felt so much like Wrath of the Lich King, (and yes I know the two games are different) that I just didn't play it past level 1). But i'm willing to give it another go, just to see what its all about.
On a side note; What does the population of the game look like currently? Is there still people playing the game/dedicated playerbase, or would I be walking into a ghost town?
