I notice that it's way harder to find a group outside of exp weekends, but even if you can find a group, you start to feel like you're wasting your time. As much as I would like to play EverQuest right now, I feel like it would be smarter to simply take a break until the 18th, when Thanksgiving weekend begins. I think the reason why is fairly obvious. I know a similar system exists in other MMOs I have played, but the exp bonus typically only applies for lower level characters, with higher level characters only receiving a 5% buff to their attack power / mana regen during said weekends. I just feel like these double exp weekends discourage us from playing? Like I'll probably play through Thanksgiving weekend, and then wait for Planes of Power and the next double exp weekend? Because I have a need to feel like I'm getting the most value out of my time and efforts.
