OP  7/03/13 1:45:39 AM#1

Have we considered, that what if this game, the epitome of everquest awesomeness is SO good, that every single subscriber from BOTH EQ and EQ2 stop subbing or playing and the servers dry up as they are all playing EQn?

 

Would SOE close those games down so that this is the only EQ game on the market?

Well, yeah... If no one, not a single person, is playing, why would they keep the servers up?

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

It'll never happen because people have different tastes.  I'll never understand why people play games like WoW, Rift or FFXIV but then again they say the same about me playing TSW, GW2 and Neverwinter.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Don't put all your apples into one basket just yet. Knowing SoE, I doubt they would shut the other games down. They've made it known how extremely greedy they can be. And that was before F2P. EQ2, before it went F2P, had a crap load of micro trans, for everything from pets, house decor, clothing, etc.

Personally, I have put so much time into EQ that if EQN fills the holes for me, I'd just play EQN going forward.  EQ probably wont be around for all eternity - and this could be the start of the end.  

With that said, their constant release of new content and expacs will probably pull old players back from time to time ...

We will see though.

OP asked a hypothetical question... Seriously... This is why this forums is overwhelmed with dumb discussions. 

The HYPOTHETICAL QUESTION he asked was "What if this game is so popular nobody plays the others?"

If that WERE to happen there is no reason why the servers should be up if NO ONE, as op said, is playing...

If the player count were to drop too low on EQ and EQ2 then SOE would close the game down, I don't think anyone would doubt that, it wouldn't even require all the players leave just enough to make it unprofitable to run.  No company would continue running a game at a loss, they are in the business to make money.

However it won't happen.  There are people who will not try out the game (I play EQ atm and there are quite a few who are happy enough with EQ currently, though they are worried about the potential impact of EQN).  I also don't see the game being similar enough to compete for the same customer tastes.  Having said that I can see EQ / EQ2 losing some players from this, regardless of whether or not they remain in EQN.

Eh, if no-one plays those games who would miss them?

Of course they would, a MMO with no players is just a waste of space. Maybe they would keep a single EQ1 server running just for old times sake....

Played EQ, UO, DAoC, AO, WoW, EQII, Vanguard, Ryzom, Darkfall, Warhammer, Rift, MO, Tera, DFUW, Age of Wushu, NW2, ESO and many others I don't remember or care to admit.

What if the game is such a fail of epic proportions that everyone across all 3 games becomes so jaded by its very existence they quit playing any of them. Ya think they'll shut down all the games?

I will never quit playing EQ2, i still play EQ every now and then.

I expect that from Titan, not from EQ. From SOE, I expect a new fail like Galaxies or EQ 2.

EQ2 didn't kill EQ and EQNext won't kill EQ or EQ2.

And just for the record, EQNext won't kill any other game either.

Imagine if it sucked in players from every other game as well, and if rather than watching TV or going to the cinema people were just playing EQ Next.  What if people stopped going to work and whole economies shut down.  Public services no longer functioned and the military was taken over by sentient robots?  

We must stop this game now before it can do any more damage!

I think EQNext could possibly hurt the sales of games that are going to release soon such as ArcheAge, TESO, and Wildstar if it is released before or near the same time as them.

i dont think EQN is even on the radar of most mmo players

 

theres been practically no press coverage outside of here and joystiq (massively)

 

when SOE does make a splash on 08/02  -- it will take time for word to spread

 

even w full info EQN available,

many gamers are happy w their existing friends in current mmos

Are you drunk lol, really think about what you are saying where TESO is concerned. Now that the game is coming out on consoles you really think that ZeniMax are going to struggle with TESO.

As for AA, well that all depends on what route EQN goes, if they don't turn EQN into what you want, IE EVE in Norrath then AA will be a great option for the PVPers.

Wildstar perhaps but TESO, you are joking, right?
