Our Launch Party Coverage - EverQuest II -

Our own Richard Duffek has completed his report on the EQII launch event party that the lucky dog got to attend a couple weeks ago (Nov 11 to be exact).  The event was full of game developers, industry gurus, and of celebs!  Here is a snippet:

Well they definitely hooked the place up. The outside of the Ruby Skye club had been transformed into a castle. The medieval theme continued to the inside where there were stone pillars with Dragons posed on top; the waitresses and bartenders were in costume, everything looked great. The serving wenches, aka waitresses, circulated the room with huge platters of extremely tasty appetizers. And of course my favorite part, the open bar. Also scattered throughout the club were some fifty odd computers all with EQ2 running for people to try the game out. Speaking of people, here's a brief list of some of the celebrities in attendance:

  • Andrew Firestone (The Bachelor)
  • Brande Roderick (Playboy Playmate of the Year 2001)
  • Traci Bingham (Baywatch)
  • Bai Ling (Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow)
  • Todd Pratt (Phillies)
  • Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls)
  • Summer (Penthouse Pet of the Year 2004)
  • Teyo Johnson (Oakland Raiders)

There were many more in attendance as well. A large number of the development team was in attendance as the party was primarily in my opinion for them in appreciation of a job well done. I can only imagine how nice it must have felt to them to be able to kick back and enjoy the night after the hectic schedule and mass amounts of overtime they had to have put in during the last couple of months to ensure the game was ready for launch.
