    Will next weekend, 4th of July weekend be a double XP weekend? Asking now and hopefully get an answer so we have more of a notice then like 12 hours before it is due to start. People like to plan for these weekends and less posts saying, well I didn't know and now I can't make it cause I made other plans and rant to no end.

    Unfortunately they never give much advance notice but there definitely will be something. It may be double xp by itself or it may be double named spawns or it may be marketplace sales or any combination of the 3. Probably get a 4-5 day weekend of whatever it is based on previous years.

    We can hope, but yeah, not much notice. Althoguh they could let us know this weekend, and break that 'short notice' habit.

    Assume that the answer is yes and plan accordingly... that way, you're available if it is. The worst that would happen is that the assumption was wrong and you still get some extra time to play EQ.

    With any luck, Bertox will crash at least 3x a day during the double exp, so they'll just throw their hands in the air and leave it on for a month or so!

    They'll patch something cute in on Wednesday that will require an 'emergency' patch on Friday that will take the servers down for around 12 hours. Carnac the Magnificent told me.

    They had it had it last year.

    Announced it at 5pm pacific time on the 3rd, essentially started 7 hours later. Exp started at 12:01 am the 4th and went till 11:59 pm on the 7th. I imagine we'll get only 3 days this year with the 4th being a Friday. It would be nice if they could announce holiday things in the new Sense Heading section by giving a monthly calendar at the start of each month. This would all the player base to better anticipate and plan for these.

    Rule of thumb is if your away on a weekend the chance of double EXp goes up triple then if you plan to play that weekend. Good luck

    True, in all of my EQ playing (15+years), I've made it to exactly 3 double xp weekends.

    Not that it will matter, since I doubt anyone who can actually activate double XP would read this, but...

    PLEASE let us have double XP this weekend? GF and I just came back after a break and double XP would really be appreciated! :)

    How about double faction too, or too soon after War release?

    (I could care less about the double XP)

    Must be nice to not work on weekends.

    Dear Angahran's Boss,

    Please excuse Angahran from work this weekend. The world of Norrath need's his shadow knight-ly powers. Nothing is more American than Everquest on 4th of July Weekend. Please don't hate America.

    Yours Truly,

    Print this out and take it to your boss.
