The lack of insight and perspective here is piled deep enough to bury the earth to the depth of a mile.If you didn't play EQ - you don't get it. Period.If you think that WOW is World of Raids - you're basically clueless - in EQ, the raid content was even ACCESSIBLE to less than 2% of the game - forget WoW's little league 'everyone plays' rules - these guys changed the paradigm. You giving them a ration over it is pathetic and reprehensible. They put their money where their mouth is - by making the raid content POSSIBLE for anyone who plays and levels up. You don't have to worry about cock-blocking of uberguilds and spawn-domination.And if you think WoW has timesinks - then you sir, are a whiner. You make Luke Skywalker look like Siddhartha. Ok, WoW has a few multi-hour timesinks. Rep farms that take 30 mins a day for a month - so what? There are big rewards along the way. Everquest back then had quests that required at-the-keyboard timesinks that required SCORES of hours in a row. That's right - to get the equivalent of a CoT exalted dagger - you had to sit in one spot putting down hundreds of basically lootless monsters to get ONE STEP done in a quest.Clue in - Tigole's presence advanced pretty much every MMO that followed. Who cares if his name was a banal joke made by a 20 yr old guy? How much have you changed in 10 years?
