Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

This kind of news for a well known MMORPG should be in the front page news box on a site like this...

You do good work though Nadia in covering the yawning gaps that leaves in it's coverage of EQ2, keep it up :)

Hmm...I got one that had an EverQuest 1 border, but says the time was credited to my EverQuest 2 account. I logged in and have no credit on my subscription...was it a fluke or?

Edit: Nevermind, it didn't show until I claimed it ingame.

nadia do you happen to know how they treat the sony access pass or whatever they call it?  would that count as gold for eq's 1 and 2?  i figured you'd be the best person on here to ask


thanks :)

RIP Ribbitribbitt you are missed, kid.

technically the pass should count for being a past subscriber

but to get the items for returning as a sub, I doubt the pass will qualify as "returning" to all SOE ganes

I read this just before Xmas and thought I'd give EQ2 another go, having been playing on-and-off since launch.

I'd just like to say to Nadia (in the most polite and respectful manner) I HATE YOU!

I had plans for the holiday break, but I've been running around Norrath instead. Discovering that I can now essentially 'play to pay to play' means that I've now paid for another couple of months and bought the latest expansion.

Crafting experimenting was a welcome surprise. I've now powerlevelled most of my toons to the new cap (it was 92 when I last played), and I'm having a great time in an MMO again, whilst my real life dwindles by the wayside.
