What Does Classic Mean To You?
MMORPG.com has an interview posted with Chris Lena, a Producer on EverQuest. In this interview questions are answered regarding the new "progression" server and how it will bring the classic feel back to old school and newer players alike.
Carolyn Koh quizes the folks behind the brand new EverQuest "Progression Server", which lets players play EverQuest the way it was originally presented to the players. We talk to Chris Lena, a Producer on EverQuest, about this.
MMORPG.com: There’s been a lot of interest in the Progression Server and I’m going to ask the $64 dollar question. Why? Why did you think that such a concept would work?
Chris Lena: There are a lot of reasons for this server idea, but for me it was a fairly simple solution to a problem EverQuest has had for a long time. People always say to me that they would love to try EverQuest or that they used to play and would like to get back into it but they feel overwhelmed because of all of the content that has been added. They feel like they could never catch up and just lose their gumption. The Progression Server is a way for all of those people to get on this new server at level 1 and progress through all the content together. The amount they have to learn when they start is bite-sized. But the Progression Server has become a lot of things to a lot of people and you can find dozens of different reasons on our forums as to why players are interested in this concept.
