I played EQ2 on and off back in the day. I never really got hooked because of better alternatives. But now with all mmos being crap I find myself rehashing the classics trying like most to find a home.
As I scroll the list and come across EQ2, I say to myself no, just NO !
Here is why :
First the game was never that great to begin with along with bad coding plastic graphics and elevator music that doesn't fit anything........But at least it's an mmo unlike most on the list.
Next, SOE sold us out by going F2P cash grabs, and many say the cash shop is not very good even if you don't mind them.
**But the biggest reason of all is the game is PIECED TOGEATHER LIKE A JIGSAW PUZZLE ! **
This all started back in the early stages of SOE marketing greed days. Unlike Blizzard, SOE pushed paid expansions instead of free updates. Zoning to areas were bad enough, then you had to load in your expansion and figure out where to go to mash the world together. Some zones were bugged, the newer ones were slightly better, where should you go next ? The list could go on and on with confusion. Add in crappy maps. I could understand the idea of self exploration but not with this game being pieced together.
Now were in 2015. The new player has to deal with a Cash shop and do heavy research from the net so you don't buy the wrong things and get ripped off, but you also have to figure out expansion packages. THEN AFTER ALL THAT YOU HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHERE TO START AND HOW TO ADVANCE !!!
The vets would love to say its "easy"......I would say bull crap.....For everything hard to figure out in this mmo = money for SOE.
