My Take on Everything

My opinion on what is going on with MMOs. Released or not. This will not be a rant blog. It will be opinions on current status of MMOs.

Is EQ2 picking up or going down

Here`s the question: Is EQ2 picking up or going down?  It's the top game on mmorpg.com, It's forum has a lot of activity.  Posts seems to indicate that people are going back or trying out EQ2.  Not a lot of negativity towards the game....

 

Is it time for SOE to launch a massive marketing spree for EQ2 again?  Are they willing to do it?  The game lacks visibility that is for sure.  It is polish, fun and has tons of content.  It can compete with WoW and LOTRO, no problem there...

Opinions?

Free Content

Free content in a MMOG?  That is a false statement in my opinion.  We pay a monthly fee (for the most part) for every single MMOG we play.  That is why devs prepare that content for us, because we are paying a monthly fee.  If we were not paying a monthly fee, you could forget about patches and updates all together.  Even a system like LOTRO lifetime sub could not provide the money needed for patches and content.

Yes it looks free, but in the end, it is not.  It is content we get because there is a fee attached to playing the game.

EQ2, The best MMO around at the moment

It's true.  I just started EQ2 (for real.. had it for a while but never really played) and it's an amazing game!  Graphics are nice, gameplay is nice and there is too much stuff to do.  I was surprised to see that Antonica on most of the servers had 50 to 80 players in the zone.  Don't believe the people that are saying the old land is dead.  Not true.  I started on the old land to actually verify those claims.  EQ2 is in excellent shape.  Even the people on this site rate it no 1.  And we all know what kind of people visit this site :)

 

I'm really enjoying it and i kinda feel bad for not starting playing earlier.  Now that VG is on hiatus and that I'm not in any beta currently, i have time to devote to EQ2.

 

LOTRO?  WoW?  Forget those kids.... Give EQ2 a try.
