Op/Ed: EverQuest II vs. The New Kids on the Block

Posted Mon, Apr 21, 2008 by Shayalyn

It's Not Getting Older; It's Getting Better!
As EverQuest II gets ready for the old folks home, brand new games are soon heading to shelves all over the world. What will these new kids on the block mean for the EQ2 community?  It's too soon to tell for sure, but Savanja lays it all out on the line discussing where EQ2 shines, and where the competition might trump us.  Never fear though, EQ2 has something that no game on the market could ever top!  What is it?  Well, you'll just have to read to find out!
Let's face it, PvP was always sort of an afterthought in EQ2. It was not introduced into game at launch, and early on it was often stated by the devs that it wasn't even a current thought. Complaints flowed regularly over the obvious lack, and SOE finally paid heed to their cry and added PvP servers after the grim flop of duel functions and rarely used PvP arenas.


This announcement is so full of win we could hardly wait to tell you about it. Today EQHammer announced its User-generated Content System. In the spirit of EverQuest Next Landmark, where players are the superstars creating cool things, we’ve decided to give you - the players, the dreamers of dreams and the makers of guides - a platform.
