Any plan for Classic EQ servers? not TLP.

    Point of TLP seems to be making progressions as fast as possible, not enjoying the old contents thoroughly. Anyone up for Classic EQ servers allowing enough time to play each expansions? so that even casual users, raiding 1 or 2 night a week, could have BIS on most slots.

    Probably not no.

    Instances allow for gearing extremely quickly for most people even 1-2 night a week raiders. Anything more than 3 months per expansion (early expansions only) is way too long and ends up leading the people quitting before they reach any of the later expansions.

    It’s not until you get into the later expansions which were each designed to occupy players for over a year on their own when you could actually slow down progression and not lose a bunch of people.

    But when youre dealing with the first 10 or so expansions those were all designed for several months of content and with how much higher DPS is and how much content is available through instancing and pickzones that content gets consumed even faster.

    Nothing keeps you from enjoying old content thoroughly on current TLP servers.

    LOL. You can enjoy old contents thoroughly on normal servers too =p
    Seriously, what's your problem?

    They did that with the first two servers. No reason to keep rehashing the same thing over and over. If anything, they should continue to come up with new ideas...

    Most guilds on these server have room for casual players that only want to raid once a week or twice a week. The problem is that those that only want to or can only raid once a week begin to often feel left out or behind so they either try and play catch up and play more than they would like with their current guild or they wine that they aren't getting as much loot as the 80-100% raiders in the guild. Honestly if you can accept that you are only going to get 1-2 BiS items and 4-5 okay items each expansion as a low participation raider you can experience all the content just fine. No you aren't going to ever get a server that is that slow paced for people because no one will stick around or be consistent enough raiding to keep the population going.

    With a lack of AoC on live it severely hinders the chances of seeing any old world raid targets on your own time table, but yeah you are right. I have no problem, I will continue to enjoy TLPs as they currently get rolled out.

    The new movement is No leveling / No AAing / No Raid flags till GOD FV TLP Server!

    Also he is right no AOCs on live servers = good luck

    I would think that part of the reason that DBG officially recognized the P99 server was because they had no intention of ever making a "classic" EverQuest server.

    There was a dev (don't remember which one at this point) that specifically said on these forums that TLP is not Classic. That clearly states that they know TLP is not like Classic, and that it was designed specifically not to be like Classic. Take that, the fact that they officially recognized the EQemu community with the P99 server, and the fact that there has been no communication from SoE, DBG, nor DPG in the history of EverQuest of ever having any intentions to make a Classic server, and you pretty much have your answer.

    i also believe they stated they do not have the coding from back then.. with the company changes, countless quality of life changes to the game over the years that they just cannot make it like it was back then.

    Someone posted an idea a while back that i liked. Having a Level locked Server.
    Release a new EQ server set at the current release. But max Level is 50 and then increase it by 5 levels every couple months.

    There is already a locked server, Agnarr, and the population has been low to say the least.

    You don’t need BiS if your only raiding 1-2 days a week. Just learn how to spend your dkp better. By the end of the second month in a 3 month expansion release most people are only logging in at raid nights or to farm krono. If you really want BiS gear just try and find a guild that raids on the 2 nights a week you can raid. Also don’t be dead weight on a raid.

    Also, why the hell are you posting in the TLP forum if you specifically want something that is not a TLP??!

    What exactly is enjoying old content thoroughly?
  17. Jayjayjay Lorekeeper

    your reply explains exactly what's wrong with "old people". Games are not for those who play 24-7, not having life out of gaming. It really is pathetic if you think casual players do not deserve to play this game =)

    Played EQ since '98 betas, never had or needed literal BiS in every slot. Had BiS in some (not all and not majority) slots on mains only. The whole "dont have a life" thing is a made up meme by those who didnt use their time productively / preferred to play solo / refused to be in a guild, etc...

    The meme went something like this:
    Less farmed than you = L2P before joining our raids etc...
    More farmed than me = lives in moms basement /no-life-meme.jpg
