Fuck, did they learn nothing? NO INSTANCING. If you had just come out and said "Instances or no instances" in the poll, I'm sure the answers would have been WAY different.

Guess thats why they're carefully picking their words... =D

Not everyone sees the question entirely as a matter of Black or White.

 

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

My feelings on this, if they can pull off what they plan: This would create a world that every time you login you have to explore and find things to do, not knowing one day to the next where something may be or what loot may drop. That to me is awesome as it would help things not grow stale by giving you a sense of adventure and I'm all for it as long as there is enough variety/content in the emergent AI content to go around :)

This isn't a matter of black and white, it's a matter of a shitty unclear poll question.

Was it just me or was the only thing made clear was that they are not talking about PvP yet?

It sounded to me that they are looking to change the rules about contested and uncontested content.  What they are trying to get away from is the contested static spawns.  If the Orc boss moves around the area due to a number of external pressures and you have to go and find the boss (yeah for Rangers) then that eliminates camping. 

What they still haven't addressed is shared reward or how to prevent kill stealing.  Either everyone gets credit for assisting in the kill and gets some reward or only certain persons/group get the reward because they did the most damage or struck first or what ever logic is applied.  What I hope is that we don't go back to the EQ1 contested where an UBER group could run through the area and one shot the mobs, including the named mobs and leave the other players constantly scrambling to find the mobs.

So I guess greasy hair + makeup is the new sexy.

Anyways, I dont mind instances as long as there is enough noninstanced content to make the game feel like an actual MMOG. Lets hope they can make the ingame world insteresting again and they give us reason to travel and return to zones we liked.

Already chuckling here seeing some still think that EQNext will only have FFA oPvP servers.

This is 2013 and forced PvP has been proven to lock the game forever in a niche.

Yes they might have separate PvP servers, but there will be PvE servers aswell, which will only have consensual PvP, either with a faction system or separate PvP areas.

Anything else doesn't work in an AAA MMO anymore.

If it wasn't for SOE - by now I would be 95% sure that EQ Next is just a marketing trick.   So many articles, so many articles with Videos  ..  and ALL they are showing is funny looking pony-tailed guy talking in front of the camera about things that will come.

I'm maybe getting too old for this (to be the right target audience), but then again - looking at the guys age - I couldn't be FAR off.

I'm definitely thinking that there is going to be an open world PvP bombshell on the horizon. It looks like they are setting up a bait and switch for PvE players.

Actually the past majority of MMOs have shown that a PvE focus has failed to rekindle the mass marketability of WoW.

They need to be doing something dramatically left of centre to have a chance at the big shot. I think OWPvP with real competition has a better chance of achieving that than a rehashed a PvE world that we have seen a million times over.

 

I think what has been proven is that the archetypal AAA MMO doesn't work anymore.  People are bored of it.  The most popular video games in the world all have a PvP and multiplayer focus. PvE has no staying power.  Its time for MMOs to get back to PvP and real player interactions rather than smacking loot piñatas.

?? Eh what, did you even play EQ1? fully contested yet not a single sign of FFA PVP.  You do not need to have FFA PVP in a contested enviroment, First in Force was the rule.

However goodluck trying to talk up something that isn't going to happen.

If they have PvP servers and they don't overinstance the game I'll play it for sure. The biggest flaws in MMOs today are the lack of contested content (even on PvE only servers this is important), poor AI and lack of true dynamic PvE content. Sounds like they at least picked the right things to try to change. Hopefully they can pull it off.

It's funny that you all assumed the polling meant "design by vote". Did you ever consider that they just want to gauge player reaction to a feature they already have a plan for? Or maybe they are fine tuning the implementation and take the player response into consideration.

It's still not enough information to me. They haven't clearly described what contested means and how the implementation will work. Will there be open tapping? Will contested zones or mobs be different or reward differently than non-contested content? How different is the contested open content from the non-contested open content?

Curse you AquaScum!

@Montaronx 

The whole mindset of having to 'kill this mob to get said specific item' won't really work with how they are designing EQN.

Instead, the emphasis will be on exploring and seeing what you will find. That's the beauty of what they are doing with this game.

PvE has no staying power.  Its time for MMOs to get back to PvP and real player interactions rather than smacking loot piñatas. 

The fact that no western MMO has succeeded in rekindling the  mass marketability of WoW suggests that the issue is far bigger than PvE or PvP focus.  There's likely no elixir or panacea that devs can concoct which will guarantee a repeat.  While I agree with your assessment of the potential of PvP and multiplayer gaming, there's also an important distinction to be made.  Almost without exception, the gameplay of those highest selling PvP games would be far more akin to battlegrounds and instanced matches than the prototypical FFA oPvP that is often advocated on these boards.  If anything, the prevailing taste seems to be for esport-like competition and tactics rather than the uneven, often completely one-sided warfare served up by most oPvP MMOs.

 

To the heart of the article, I'm not sure at this point how to feel about this game because the information being sent out has been done in such piecemeal fashion.  I feel at times as if SOE is too reticent to explain just what EQNext is.  Like others I want to know their stance on PvP, I want to know what the defining trait of this EQ is when compared to others in the genre and in comparison to the other Everquests.  Right now I've only got a spare few insights into the game their building and no real inclination to feel more than lukewarm until I know a lot more.

Ya, this misconception that contested PVE means there has to be PVE is wrong. Contested PVE is just players just to camp a spawn, or getting to it before the next person. There was plenty of that in Ferrott in EQ2 without PVP
