EQ has had several progression servers, and plans for more. They are popular enough that they keep making them - and with different rule sets for each one that takes some dev investment.
to be honest as someone who been i…
While VR have made claims that Pantheon is in fact suited for a niche market, I think it will have a pretty decent following. I've messed around on Project 99, which is a EQ private server and there's just something magical about …
my thoughts on db's EQ
LoL! It's not that bad. It's not "unplayable". You can have some fun with it but you know it's not a permanent thing.
You worry me you kno…
Vanguard was fundamentally buggy. SOE did try fix it a lot (they have been maligned for it) but it was still quite buggy but despite that it was a fun game but unfortunately it lacked a critical population to make it work as a wor…
way i look at it is down to the cost of the game
nowadays a full released game is about $30 or so with discounts
So charging $30 for an alpha game no matter what you write about it been EA will lead to complaints
I personally do not mind EA if i am…
Bleh old practice.we old folks here remember when eve online did it and won the polls for game of the year.developers asked people to come here and vote.
Pretty sure a few others have also done this since
even though you mentioned you are not into sci fi theme,SWTOR has by far the best feel of been evil mainly due to the storylines.
EQ1 i never really felt anyone was evil.Heck the kill stealing druid was more evil to me then the kindly orge tank i kn…
Actually reason WoW made such a splash was because the market was so niche before and wow changed that
Honestly pre WoW ,mmorpg took time and i mean time.So you could love challenges ,you could be social ,you could have all the elements to enjoy mmo…
on and off EQ(came back for the TLE servers) last played about 1 year ago.first joined 2000
Left for a bit but always come back.currently subbed to WoW .have played since release
EQ2 on and off since launch
I know WoW gets blamed for a lot but honestly as you said they did a lot of right things at the right time.
I do not recall how much WoW budget was but i believe it was less then EQ2 or just about same
But they kept the money in the right things.The…
its fair enough.
I do agree the developers do post here which i think is nice
Its a decision they made and clearly will stick to.
It might work out great for them or might be a disaster
Time will tell.
Have to agree.When i played SWG back in 2003 i was amazed how much you got drawn into the world and your character became so important to you
it was a complex almost breathing world where everyone interacted
mmorpg have certainly gone a wrong way si…
as an old time player i seen UI evolve from the drag to anywhere on screen UO to EQ style to WoW and beyond.
If anything has certainly gone right with mmorpg its how UI evolved
so doubt any newer mmorpg will ever go backwards on UI
well my understanding is they are not trying to replicate the features of 1999 but rather the spirit of playing together by grouping and making the world more adrenaline pumped by making misadventure dangerous
of course some features from original E…
What a bunch of elitist's comments in here. Charging a fee to use a forum comes off as brash. I don't know much about the game....isn't there a patron section of the forum that backers/founders/suckers/…
