    Default Just tried eq2x... crazy

    /rambling rant/story
    Just logged into eq2x kinda wondering how it all worked... population sc and all that... and i entered into frostfang sea 7.... 7 of 14 instances with 50 plus players in them..

    I didnt lag and instantly got into a guild 2 days old with over 300 players in it all of them quite friendly.... There were people questing and grouping and running zones that havent had a group in them since eq2 launch.... this all kind of leads me wonder to why on earth would sony so royally fuck us live players who have played sony games for YEARS by creating a world as insanely awesome as this one... i dont understand ( besides for money whihc i guess is the reason).... but i would definately suggest rolling a toon on the eq2x server its kinda crazy playing with people

    Anytime something is new it'll attract attention. Why do you think comic book companies constantly put out #1 issues?

    But good luck playing on regular servers. Seems its wiping out peoples xpacks/RAFs/fuck all else.

    I started a new Warden on the eq2x servers, its kind of nice having people to group with when you level up. Dungeon crawling with a group on EQ2X for xp is a lot more fun for me then to solo all the time for xp that i have to do on live

    I think at this point if a new person asked me witch would be better for them? I would say, if you like to solo all they way to level 90 and then maybe start grouping/raiding, then live would be great, if you want to start grouping up at level 15 with others that like grouping up for xp, then eq2x would be the way to go.

    Raiding options on eq2x yet to be determined, but i expect there to be a few good raiding guilds form up later in the games life.

    Why would you want to group in this game when every mob is dead in fifteen seconds anyway?

    "Hey guys I need one more rat tail."

    "Well I still need five!"

    "I already got mine, heading back to turn in and grab next quest!"

    "No wait for us!!"

    etc etc etc. The ONLY time grouping works for standard leveling is when you have a static group that logs on for the same amount of time and stays on the same quests. The second someone branches off to do their own thing, it's all the fuck out of whack and makes grouping pointless outside of dungeons or group quests. That's just the WoW copycat design at work.

    If this was EQ1, I'd be overjoyed since groups are pretty much required to level. But it's not. This is WoW with bloated combat, bloated itemization, a bloated engine, bad art direction, bad testers, bad leadership, and piss poor balance.

    Oh yeah, the server will be down to 1/4th its population in three weeks and probably 1/25th (or less) its population when Cataclysm comes out.
