I only learned today that classic World of Warcraft had launched in August. As I look at the $13 subscription fee, I ask myself, Is there any reason to play this over Project 1999? No doubt I can anticipate many answers to this question, being that you can play it without a party, &c. But in terms of good gameplay, I see no reason to play this over Project 1999. If there were a reason, I expect it would be subtle and something that one might easily overlook in an analysis. It would still have the same problem of cheaters and twinks, and annoying people. And yes I could play it by myself, and somehow ignore my fellow players, and pretend these kind of people did not exist. But so could everyone else, and when finally I reached level 60 (big supposition here) and played with other players, I would find the truth very soon. Level 60 in Everquest is much different than level 60 in World of Warcraft. So I hear there was a surge of players in World of Warcraft, and it was making the news. Shall we just assume these are part-time gamers? I see no reason not to. In terms of ideals the game seems inferior in every way to Everquest. And this is coming from someone that does not exceptionally like Everquest, and wishes he could play Nexus, Meridian 59 or Lineage on a full server. But we can't, and I see these as the only two populated forces in online RPGs. What say you?
