I like SOE games

but SOE has never been good about listening to the playerbase

 

I dont know if it was a good idea to make all servers f2p

I'm personally OK with their decision but I was already playing on EQ2X anyhow

 

it makes sense to offer one service but this decision will disappoint some longtime active players

for those w interest

http://www.bethblog.com/index.php/2011/11/03/pre-order-the-four-disc-skyrim-soundtrack/

Available through DirectSong, the four-disc set is a fantastic collector’s item for fans of The Elder Scrolls. The compilation will begin shipping the week after the game’s release. As a bonus to anyone that orders by December 23rd, copies of the soundtrack will be personally autographed by the game’s composer, Jeremy Soule!

The four-disc CD compilation can be pre-ordered now for $29.99.

forgot to mention, gold membership does not include all races on EQ2X

but SOE will reimbursing anyone who bought a race within the last 60 days prior to the f2p conversion

 

when the f2p conversion happens in early Dec,

gold membership will include all races

the entire game is going f2p in next 3-4 weeks

 

inactive subscribers on EQ2Live will be considered Silver members unless they sub again

http://eq2wire.com/2011/11/10/everquest-ii-updated-free-to-play-frequently-asked-questions/

 

regarding your questions

EQ2 and EQ2X are currently the same game but they use different Game clients and different servers

EQ2X has only one server - Freeport

 

if you reactivate your acct -- you have to decide which service you want to use, EQ2 or EQ2X

only Station Access gives you access to both, at a subscriber level

 

your characters remain on Freeport (EQ2X) regardless of what you do

 

it seems like you want to buy a gold membership on EQ2 Extended (EQ2X)

If I reactivate my account will I keep the characters from ftp. Will I just stay in the same game without having to install my CD's

yes - you just keep playing the same game

Were games really that much better 10 years ago? Or have some people just glued their nostalgia goggles on and can't seem to remove them?

I agree with the flaws of nostalgia -- remembering the good more than the bad

BUT  (had to be a but)

due to the HOW the old mmos were played and how they were not as solo friendly

 

the need to rely on the community was greater -- and fostered better server communities

its a browser game but I may try it

Originally posted by SaintViktor

Sure, the pc is a more powerful platform with better graphics but consoles are a more stable platform. Developers just need to stop thinking they can just port a pc mmo to a console. Developers need to build a console from the ground up specifically for consoles.

FF Online did exactly that back in 2002

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy_XI

was released on PS2 first and later expanded to PCs

thanks for the dev insights/outlook and the pic heh

good luck w RIFT

the free class of Guardian is recognized as a great raid tank

Beserkers (and SKs) are recognized as the best self healing AE tanks

 

Wizards and Warlocks - nothing lame about these casting nukers

 

Brigands / Swashbucklers - never heard people calling these scouts lame

 

Inquisitors / Templars - all of EQ2's healers are well balanced,  these are not inferior choices

Originally posted by RexNebular

If I can roll a dwarf paladin without any up-front fees, then count me in.

If not, then middle finger to you, SOE.

I guess soe gets the finger from you

 

one of the things I dont like about the conversion is the trial will be discontinued

- thats means players cannot try the nonfree classes without buying them first  (or subbing)

If i recall decay time is 1 hour

offtopic but last year, when my guild raided SF Toxx mound w the dragons

we lost some chests because they were not looted intime

- and that fight is not 1 hour

Originally posted by Lobotomist

Seems its going to be Facebook or Social related.

But Garott is not behind times. If anything he has always proven to be better game designer than any other. And perhaps a bit ahead of times in most cases

for online games he really only has Ultima Online to his credit -- and thats really all he needs

 

UO also had other designer heavyweights that helped create it

like Ralph Koster , the lead designer for UO

Originally posted by hercules

the best raid loot is not sold directly by soe but clearly encouraged by soe.why have they not changed the looting mechanism in all this years.why was a change on test and promptly removed(some dev did not read the memo it seems) a while ago..

back to ON TOPIC

I agree SOE is aware of the raid loot being sold off at "time of kill" and hasnt done anything to change it

 

buying a Raid slot in WOW is no better and has similar issues of p2w but its less efficient

WOW has no guarantee of loot but some raid achievements do give raid mounts - and that is guaranteed

 

SOE's loot chests are much easier to workaround the system than buying a raid slot

and the entire gameworld gets spammed in world chat channels with raiders trying  to sell items off fresh kills

 

their only limitation is a chest  timer thats less than 30 minutes  (not sure what the decay is)

I can bet with you that for first months cash shop will be like in EQ2Live BUT let's talk in 1 or 2 years. I can bet real money that it will be like EQ2X or Lotro like.

it is just a strategy that keeps repeating in most freemium games. Start with relatively vanity / small shop and expand it bit by bit to a point where after 1-2 years this shop is dramatically diffrent.

sigh I agree - I wont debate that   ;)

Originally posted by hercules

problem is the looting mechanism which permits best raid loot to be auctioned with minimal stress to the buyer or seller.there is very few mmo that allow someone to to loot if not present.with sc and plat so openly traded  then you see where its coming from

I understand that

this is a side topic about the SOE store which CasualBreeze claims is the worst store she has ever seen for p2w

She claims stores dont carry experience potions

but I guess she never looked at the DDO and LOTRO store -- even Age of Conan store has experience potions

 

experience potions aside

Refer a Friend triple experience  (that both EQ2 and WOW use) is leapyears better than exp potion

EQ2Live is going to cease to exist soon.  SOE is removing choice players have atm (to Play on P2P or freemium servers) and is converting all servers to freemium model.

agree but SOE not offering what EQ2X has or used to have

 

after the revamp - the store will use what EQ2Live has now   (exp potions and mounts)

http://eq2wire.com/2011/11/10/everquest-ii-producers-letter-eq2-fully-goes-free-to-play-livegamer-gone/

EQ2X currently has a list of items that are not available on the regular server marketplaces. These include:

  • Power potion
  • Health potion
  • Self-rez scroll
  • Wand of Obliteration
  • Rune of Devastation
  • Mastercrafted Equipment (all)
  • Tradeskill Components

These items will no longer be offered on the marketplace when this revamp occurs.

 

EQ2Live store has never had "buy a rez" or  tradeskill components for sale on their store

- something that both LOTRO and DDO stores offer

 

http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=509183

1) Will current Platinum subscribers get "Age of Discovery" for free?

The answer is "yes". Platinum users technically only get "Destiny of Velious" as part of their membership, but we do remember the conversations that occurred before launch where we had talked about *possibly* giving expansions for free to Platinum. We understand why people think they should be getting AoD for free, and we are "doing the right thing" by making that happen.

However, "Age of Discovery" is the last expansion that will be given for free to Platinum members because we are now discontinuing the Platinum service after this. But enjoy!

2) Will Freeport players be eligible for Veteran Rewards after the change?

The answer is "yes". In fact, if you played on Live and EQ2X both, we are merging your histories together to ensure that you do not lose any veteran status. So if you used to play on Live, but now play only on EQ2X, you will still get veteran rewards based on your Live duration as well as your EQ2X one. (NOTE: These are not cumulative. If you were playing Live at the same time as EQ2X, then you only get credit for one service against time for vet rewards.)

3) Do recurring subscriptions get a 500SC bonus grant per month?

The answer is "yes". All durations of recurring Gold memberships (1-, 3-, 6-, and 12-month) get 500SC granted to them each month. (NOTE: This is a perk for recurring memberships only. Non-recurring memberships do not get this grant.)

4) Character slots. There are several situations that people have asked about. Here are all the answers at once:

Do I keep my character slots after the changeover?

The answer is "yes". If you paid for it on the marketplace, we don't take it away. You keep all character slots.

If I was grandfathered in with the Station Access extra character slots when Station Access was changed last year, do I still keep those extra (grandfathered) slots?

The answer is "yes".

If I was playing on EQII Live *and* on EQ2X, and have tons of characters on both servers, what happens when the conversion occurs and all my characters are visible on the character selection screen all at once?

This answer is a bit more complicated, and I'll explain, but the answer is "We're giving you extra character slots to compensate." Here are the details on this. Please read them carefully.

  1. Everything you read below pertains *only* to characters that existed on your accounts on 11/10/2011. Characters created later than that date are *not* included in this solution.
  2. This solution *only* pertains to players that have characters on *both* a Live server *and* EQ2X.
  3. That being said, here's how it works: You have a number of characters on Live. You have a number of characters on EQ2X. Total those two numbers together. This is your total number of characters. Now subtract from that value, the total number of character slots that purchased for your account on both EQII Live and EQ2X. Now, further subtract seven from that value. (Seven is the base number of slots that a Gold membership grants you by default.) The resulting value is the number of character slots that we will grant you for free so that you can still access and play all of your characters. Make sense? (There's an example below, in #4, for clarity.
  4. Example of #3 : Bob has 11 characters on Antonia Bayle (purchased four character slots) and 8 characters on Freeport (purchased one character slot). The total number of characters is 19. The total character slots purchased is 5. (19 - 5 - 7 = 7) So Bob will receive seven new character slots on his account on the day of conversion so that he can access all 19 of his characters without further purchase.

if it was just mounts I would have said mounts, in EQ you can buy XP potions, gear, items, potions, sex change, race change, special zones, pets, trinkets, tradeskill potions that make you never fail, etc....

that's a whole lot more than "mounts"

it's more than all of the F2P games I have played too, many F2P games don't offer XP potions or gear

not true at all

EQ2Live store has zero adventure gear --- its only mounts and experience potions (adventure or tradeskill)

even the EQ2X store has zero gear, it was all removed over 4 months ago

 

there are no zones to buy - unless you mean player housing homes

sex change / race change?   thats not pay to win and WOW offers the same crap

 

Turbines DDO and LOTRO store offer many more items - but I guess you never played those

http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/LOTRO_Store

http://ddowiki.com/page/DDO_Store

Originally posted by Axehilt

Raid gear isn't BOP?!?

EQ2 raid gear is bop

but because it drops in a chest -- players can work around the restriction

 

the gear is not tradeable unless you were present when the item was looted

you can be invited to the raid group (after the kill) and the raid looter gives you permission to loot the chest

Originally posted by CalmOceans

All SoE games are pay to win atm. You can buy xp, items, potions, recruit a friend gives you 3 times as much xp. SoE is a horrible company.

the items you refer to are mounts -- same thing WOW sells in the cash shop

 

if gonna call RAF pay to win with the triple experience bonus,

may as well include World of Warcraft - thats who SOE copied the promotion from

 

WOW has been offering triple experience for over 3 years

http://wow.joystiq.com/2008/08/05/blizzard-shows-off-recruit-a-friend-benefits-zhevra-mount-summ/

the WOW version is even worse - you can grant levels to your RAF friend  (or yourself if bought 2nd acct)

Can someone explain this feature to me.  If its what I think it is then I'm glad its gone as well.

It's not really gone, it's just microtransactions. Since SoE has their own service now they don't need Live Gamer any longer.

whats SOEs own service?   the station store that only sells mounts, exp potions and cosmetics?

hell, even WOW store sells mounts and pets

 

Live Gamer sold ingame cash, characters, player gear
