This is a partial rant about what I perceive to be flaws in everquest, where the devs have only made partial workarounds for us players. Some of the flaws have been around so long that we have learned to accept them, however they still lower the overall quality of the game. The fact that they have been around for so long, means that some of them might have been forgotten and needs a reminder. You are welcome to add your own grievances too. Some of the "flaws" will just be opinions, but thats ok. In the long term I hope the devs will take the time to fix some of them. It is basically a wishlist of things I think should be addressed/improved, if the devs magically receive unlimited funds. Sound-design: The game is lousy about communicating through sound-effects, what is important to the player. It has gotten so bad that many players just disable sound, and have to supply their "own sound design" through in-game audio-triggers or Gina. In most other games, things that are important to gameplay will have an easily identifiable sound-effect to warn the player. That shouldn't be the player's responsibility, imho. The music is top-notch though. Text-spam: The game has insufficient chat-filter options, forcing players to use offscreen chat-windows just to hide the spam. I would greatly appreciate it, if we had much better control over what goes into our chat windows. it might even improve performance. Consolidation of messages would also be a great improvement to the game, I get 15+ lines of text when I cast a spell, and I need a third-paty program just to get an idea of my damage output. That is not optimal. Mouse-control: Turning with the mouse is difficult if the framerate is too variable! Being forced to limit the framerate to 30 fps, just to avoid bumping into walls when we encounter uncached "lagpiles", is not a satisfactory solution.
