Oooh! I Want My Opinion To Matter Too!

My first foray into the Blog-sphere; please be gentle!

So a N00b walks into an EQ2 Broker House...

with a Fabled "Master I" I looted in WC looking to sell this baby because of course it isn't for my class(loot drops never are); but for some reason I cant sell it. Odd!  Oh well I guess I'll trek across Norrath to my hovel (I'm a Troll ya know) and use the board you get when you first create a character. WTF! Still cant sell it! Why does $OE hate me! So I go to my last resort; asking for help over the OOC channels! Usually that can be painful at best; but nobody got angry that I didn't know that you had to have a BAG to put whatever you want to sell in! I guess the Broker doesn't want to get his fingerprints on my ill-gotten gains ( I swear that Shin Ree started it)!

EQ2 has the best community I have seen in an MMO. Other MMO's I've played if you ask a question people act like they have to walk across broken glass to get the answer for you. Not to mention all the derogatory comments on your intelligence and parentage! It might be because I'm on a RP server but everybody is helpful and funny as hell too. The night I brought up Chris Benoit was HOURS of fun! That conversation went everywhere! Best fun I've had since SWG heyday. To me community is VERY important in a game; even though I solo alot. I get just as much enjoyment chatting about stoopid things as I do questing if their is good conversation involved.

Am I the only one that feels the same way? Is community and the chatting aspect of it important to you too? If so what MMO do you think has the best community; I would be willing to try it out.

Yep, the community is quite good from what I've experienced so far on the two servers I've been on. The 60-69 channel is a bit "different" though. It's vaguely reminiscent of the Barrens chat from WoW.  :)

I didn't particularly enjoy the community while I played. Maybe it was just my server. Its not like I had a lot of interaction with people considering I rarely saw anyone in my 48 levels of playing. The ones I did meet seemed to be your usual MMO player obsessed with loot. I'm going to give it another go once the new expansion comes out. I think EQ2 is an excellent game, but the low population just kills it for me. I play to interact with other people.

Of course you're right.

different games (DDO for me; then CoH) but I have found to keep my interest more than a very short time its always a question of community...

...otherwise we'd be playing our single-player RPG's wouldn't we?

I forgot about DDO since I no longer play it but it has a good community also. I had high hopes for that one but couldn't handle the LFG grind. I think I'll give CoH/V a try this weekend when I have some time off. Heard good things about it.

And to Brostyn I would give it another try. I play on AB and it has a high population. Also because it's not a PvP server the community is good. I just have the core game, no expansions, but see people all the time LFM.

By the way, my character's name is Sorrowbourne; Troll Fury solo machine! I had my Alt-idus(sp?) bone taken out in childhood!
