So.. this happened today...
Basically, my newsfeed lit up today and I've been spending the day getting my PS4 account and PC gaming accounts situated. My EQ2 Launcher is broke or was. Apparently, it's working but I haven't touched the game since the expansion after Dragons of Norrath. I'd like to login and kill some things one day but I just can't force myself to pay for a sub again after the Free-To-Play fiasco and me having to find other gear than Fabled. What is this questing non-sense? The FREEmium model pretty much killed the game for me, so there's my whining about EQ2. I think if you told me EQ2 servers were dead, I'd probably believe you after today's headline about EQNext.
A friend messaged me and told me the intent is to keep Landmark online which that makes no sense to me. Thought that was for crafting and building EQNext. I logged in and looked at is as a Minecraft or beta for EQNext. Honestly, I don't think I would have played Next even when I was active in EQ2. I was more curious to see the eye candy on a 3D Monitor and glasses setup which now of course would be how it would look on the Oculus. Guess that won't ever happen.
Apparently, a Terrors of Thalumbra expansion came out since the last time I opened the launcher. Ugh, I guess I'll have to fight with Daybreak next to get my STEAM/Planetside 2 accounts situated. EQ2 I'll probably login, pay the guild hall, and log back out like I've done the past times I actually logged in. Free Game doesn't appeal for me to login for dailies or anything. Don't get LON cards or chances at appearance stuff. I have a character unlock for LON but think that'll just let me play an existing character so I 'm still stuck paying a full subscription if I want to make a BL.
What's your reaction on the news of EQNext? How's Funrest and raiding? There's people playing still, raiding, questing, or is just EQ2 PvP Battlegrounds and raiding? (Really wish they expanded on Battlegrounds and maps >.< Another killer for me) Which guilds are leading the server ATM for raiding?
I'll dig up trailers and check out the new expansion just out of curiosity.
Anyway /wave hello and /wave bye
Funrest is dead? Apparently I'm on a Halls of Fate server o.O Oh man, the confusion is real after this much time. I has a new title "Native of Unrest" apparently among other things...
Someone please tell me Rallos Zek is a raidable killable thing?
I literally haven't logged into flames in years. After not being on this site for a few years and being retired from eq2 since Sentinels Fate, I was surprised to see a familiar name especially after randomly logging in. It's been it's been what, 6+ years since I've been in-game with you Hecatean? How's it going? PM me if you remember me, lol!
Anyway, I've been out of the gaming scene for a long while now and wanted to see what was up with eq2... the MMO that dominated my life for years ago. Anyway, the game looks pretty dead to me. Maybe I'm wrong? Is there anything out there worthwhile to play? I've tried a few other games over the years but nothing stuck like eq2 did back in the day. It's too bad its dead. EQNext would have been cool but I gave up on it a while back.
