Eq2 was always a step or 5 behind wow. I think most people are excited because of this. Eqnext is the underdogs crack at becoming the king and everyone loves a good underdog, even the front runners (wow players) are rooting for something fresh

If people want something fresh, go give TSW a try.  It's B2P and is occasionally on sale on Steam.

Lol, sound is a somewhat odd reasons... I usually have the stereo up while I play games anyways.

The animations are nothing special, that one is true but they are not truly bad either.

The questgrind is nowadays bad, yes. One could wonder why they just wont make longer quests instead of so many short, the HQs are actually often good. The worst one are those stupid quests when some animals have eaten a book and you have to kill 10 of every kind 50 in total to piece the book together, it might be the worst kind of quest I ever saw in a MMO.

The part where you can pick and choose is good though, but the game really should have more signature and heritage quest and get rid of 90% of the rest. A quest should be something like finding the holy grail or throw the one ring into mount Doom, not killing bugs in a farm or bringing a message to someones brother (who is standing 50" away).

I think a lot of the problem is the fact that the game have grown to large for it own good, when they add new zones they should delete a bunch of pointless ones from the earlier zones with the same level.

I have played EQ2 a lot actually. Currently on break.

Went back to EQ1, and am having a blast!

 

IMO, EQ1 is much better than EQ2.

Graphics. I spend a lot on my rig keeping it updated and able to play all the top games so I do expect a game to at least try to push it otherwise its a waste of the money I've spent on it.

I honestly tried to...but when I have to make the game look worse than EQ1 to get a solid no dip 60fps, when TSW, GW2, AoC and Rift all run 70+ fps on maxed out the ass settings, something is insanly wrong.

Are you honestly saying EQ2 doesnt push your rig? I have 2 7990s in xfire and the game runs 30fps on medium.....

Which is my problem with it...the game has one of the worst engines iv ever seen.

I think it have a lot more to do with the first EQ. Most vets remember it as a great experience and it is not impossible that mixing EQ and UO might be a great idea.

And frankly, if EQ2 were as good coded and planned as Wow when it launched it might have been the large one, but when it released just before Wow in a really sad state it had no chance. If SOE actually learned this lesson we might be in for a really great game...

I loved EQ2 apart from every class had what looked like magic lighting,sparkles and effects, even Warrior class. Someone correct me if I am wrong.!? . Just I believe that twinkles and sparkles should be reserved for the magic classes. Shooting a bow with twirly spirials everywhere put me right off.

That said I think EQ2 what perfect for balance of what's best in a mmo, and I played a lot since 1998.

:)

Btw . I quit playing EQ2 in 2005.

I loved EQ2, back when it first came out. I watched, to my horror as it slowly got dumbed down to a water like substance like WoW. I thought the original had a great balance of difficulty, frustration (coming from corpse run EQ), but left after the changes.

Went back when it went F2P and had a wad load of Station Cash from other SOE games. Purchased some cool looking gear and mount, then wasn't sure what the purpose was to play anymore. 

Tried to start a new character, but was still "newbie" zone burned out from all the other characters I had levelled and couldn't get past staring at snow or mushrooms

Sad really, but had some fantastic memorable moments and the original EQ2 memories sit in my Virtual Trophy case of great games, moved on from along with UO EQ and DAoC

Hi all. I haven't played in about 1.5-2 years. I've come back to the game several times, and my longest stint was at launch, then when the PVP servers opened (Nagafen ftw).

I stopped because I couldn't figure out what EQ2's ground was. The launch was rough, had performance issues and difficulty problems, but I enjoyed it then. When they began to make the game more "core" (like WoW, or most casual MMOs), I lost interest. It didn't click as much as it used to. Questing became too casual, more and more of the content was soloable, and I found myself benefiting from playing alone most of the time.

Admittedly, the population is a large part of why I lost interest. Since I played on a PVP server, my fun relied on how healthy the pop was. I wasn't into ganking noobs as a twink, but I was more interested in contested mobs and raids. That was a LOT of fun.

I feel like they spent a lot of time trying to "fix" the game and again, make it more "core" instead of progressing forward. I'm an Everquest fan at heart, but EQ2 just didn't feel new enough for me. It's hard not to compare to other MMOs (I didn't leave for another game), but when you compare feature sets and the "catch" to other games, to me it was lackluster. This was enough for me to say "OK, why am I playing?".

I played it for a few months a couple years ago and it just seemed so convoluted. The skill system was not very intuitive and the questing was poorly designed. Given that they overhauled the class system, that seemed disjointed as well. I loved the world - I still think Norrath is a great fantasy setting - but it wasn't enough to overcome the feeling blandness and lack of polish the game had. They had some great ideas - like the deity system - and a wealth of content. I just wasn't all that enthralled with it.

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt

EQ2 is a decent game, but I've played that model a dozen times over.  That's why I'm not playing it. (That, and my friends aren't)

I quit because they removed most of the difficulty. I had played EQ2 for 8 years, ever since the original beta in 04. When WoW and Eq2 were first being released at the same time, the choice was WoW for casual, and EQ2 for challenge. WoW has always catered to the larger audience, while Eq2 was happy being the niche game. 

 

Lately though, every new expansion in the last 4 years or so has moved from challenging content, to just the normal WoW casualness. It focuses on solo content, and shows the way the industry has moved in the last decade. 

 

Im really looking forward to EQN, and hope they bring back some of the challenge that EQ1 and EQ2 had. Im also really excited about it being sandbox, and hope it has a really great craft system.

I've played EQ2 on and off over the years. It is a good game, though I liked it better the first time I played it when it wasn't as easy as it is now.  I left mmo's recently to play the X3 series. X3: Prelude to Albion is a lot like playing EVE single player. And a new X3 is coming this year. So we will see if I go to that or EQN based on what I hear August 2nd.  Nice thing about single player games is that there is nobody in the chat being a flake.

Currently bored with MMO's.

Early EQ2 was the main game that I loved to group in.  Being in groups in EQ2  was actually a lot more fun for me than many other games.

Pretty much the same reasons I don't play a lot of themepark mmo's. Just because WoW did it so much better.
