    so I have been playing EQ for YEARS I remember EQplayers, when it went away when EQ went F2P I actually forgot about it then randomly the other day I got a notification in game telling me that "your player data will be updated in EQ Players shortly." and I remebered about EQ players

    EQplayers was AWESOME

    I miss looking at all my buddies old characters and stuff. I also have old characters I have on different accounts and stuff I miss looking up and stuff.

    I used to go on and say "I was the top level 60 Warrior" or something silly like that when I turn the character search for highest amount of stamina.

    the player of the day that never got updated but it was still sweet :p

    those fun filters like "clerics who always burn the bread" and the "homely iksars"

    I had someone (who doesnt play anymore) tell me he was REALLY MAD when he saw that EQplayers was removed. something about losing someone close to him that played and going to EQplayers to check their old characters and stuff. (I am on that same boat with my dad)

    anywho, I really miss EQplayers and I wish you would bring it back... was something I really liked and I am sure other people like too.

    Pretty sure EQPlayers was finally removed because it had been broken six ways from Sunday for a number of years, and everybody had already moved over to Magelo /shrug

    not everyone moved to magelo.. I know that for sure

    but I like EQplayers because it gave every single character in the game.

    I know it was broken but I am sure they have the power to do it and bring it back.

    I miss it too.

    Gee if they only had access to all of that character data, they could make it accessible like Magelo.....

    Given Columbus Nova's position on technology, I'm surprised that there isn't already an app for your phone/tablet.

    Problem is how the game stores data and it isn't efficient enough to be pulled out into a separate db to be used for API purposes to make an EQ Players. It technically could be done, but it has massive overhead that wouldn't be worthwhile.

    After the lay offs it's basically dead for EQ. It required a massive amount of work on coding side to re-do large parts of the game that could break and totally ruin the data on your EQ account. This is time spent on this "feature" that wouldn't be used on anything in EQ, like bug fixes, new game features, etc.
