Oct 12th 2010 3:56PM As an adult who played EQ for years i have to tell you that you couldnt be further from the truth. EQs success lies in the fact that it was the only real option for a 3D MMO for so long. Now that there are tons of options nobody wants that horrible grindfest and there is nothing SOE could do with EQ rival any of the other larger MMOs.
Ask just about any ex-EQ player what they think and once they are done looking back with nostalgia they will quickly tell you never again will they play a grindfest like that.
Also the thinking that wow = kiddie game and EQ = adult game is very ignorant.
Oct 12th 2010 3:48PM Its typical of any market. Someone makes something ultra popular and all innovation goes out the window as everyone else rushes to copy the popular thing trying to get a piece of that pie.
Just look at the iPhone.

The buttons are pretty bad for lol. Trying to hit your 4 abilities and carefully target with the mouse can be a real pain. I went back to the standard qwer setup pretty quick. Its FPS games that surprised me i have found tons of uses for the naga in FPS games and i thought it would be useless in them as well.
Oct 2nd 2010 11:08AM Same with the naga
Oct 2nd 2010 8:05AM i will never give up my naga. I was not a clicker before i bought it and my game still improved.
Sep 14th 2010 12:16PM Seriously??? You think EQ2X gives you more for the money? EQ2X gives you LESS for the money than regular EQ2 which is an absolute failure for a f2p system.
You want people to think they are spending less, you dont charge them MORE for what they would get on the live servers.

Im glad you gave it enough time to truly get an idea of what the game is about before judging it...
Aug 25th 2010 10:17PM @Jack,
Thats my biggest issue. To me the beauty of f2p games is that if i want to play for a week then ignore it for a month i can and dont feel like i am wasting money. Because of the ability to spend cash as i need it instead of monthly or yearly i have a lot of freedom.
Aug 25th 2010 6:36PM @Graill,
What are you going on about?
If you can log on and play the game from level 1 to level cap its f2p, period.
Aug 25th 2010 6:32PM With EQ2 and LOTRO both going f2p why would anybody be looking forward to more Korean trash?
Yeah so far EQ2X sucks because of the screwed up pricing but if they make some minor alterations and allow you to buy classes individually it will easily be the best option available with the exception of LORTO.
