I don't want to infer that this current round of....ineptness?...is going to be the nail in the coffin, but it's got me thinking about the demise of EQ. I've never been actually worried that the game was going to "sunset", it's always sort of hobbled along enough to seem viable. That's changed for me. The recent debacle with Aradune, and the seeming solution (enough people will unsub that the problem will go away), doesn't bode well for the future of the game. I love EQ, in my opinion, it's the best video game ever made. The lore, the classes, the sheer scale, the interaction, the difficulty... EQ does a lot of things right that I can decipher, and some things that I can't. It's those things that I can't decipher that keep me coming back, year after year. There is a magic to this game that just doesn't exist in other offerings. I will be incredibly sad to see that vanish. I'm on the fence about omens in general, but the "Aradune" debacle doesn't bode well for me. I think you have to be really careful when you name something, especially something that carries a lot of weight for a long time community. If you are going to put your cards out like that, you better make damn sure you can back it up, nothing could be farther from the truth in this case. /shrug. I've never been worried about this game closing, I am now. I hope I'm wrong. If I'm not, it's been a great run, with some great people, and for me, the best game of all time.
