    The moment you've been waiting for has arrived. The Ragefire & Lockjaw progression servers are NOW available!

    A progression server is a special EverQuest server on which additional expansion content unlocks over time, as players defeat bosses and clear raid encounters. Ragefire and Lockjaw offer players a similar experience to how EverQuest was on March 16, 1999 when it launched!

    Access to progression servers is another perk available to our All Access members. Not a member yet? Get information about the benefits you receive for one membership price in EverQuest and other Daybreak games here.

    A little difficult to login and play when you have implemented server caps that obviously need to be increased.

    It's 2015, not 2000. Increase them.

    I'm glad I re-upped my subscription to find that there's a player limit on the server.

    I'm getting

    The world server is currently at maximum capacity and not allowing further logins until the number of players online decreases. please try again later.

    *sigh* :(

    maximum people allowed on server? hmmmm never seen that error before, whats the deal?
  13. EQJunkie76 Journeyman

    Someone mentioned something about the cap being at 4000 - Why not bump it to 4500 or 5000? Can a Dev explain please?

    I'm getting that as well.

    It is just like the 90's!
    This takes me back to trying to log into my favorite MUD only to discover it is full and I must wait for someone to log off (or go LD, muahaha) to get a chance to take their spot. Of course it was full at 100 players. I can't imagine how many it takes to be full in an EQ server...

    Good Times!
  16. EQJunkie76 Journeyman

    I mean after all, 4000 confirmed, times $15 sub, that's $60000 right there - I'm pretty sure you can afford to upgrade server capacity.

    yay its up bad you can't play because of poor planning, either up the damn limit or start a second server tonight....I know that's not possible, just wishful thinking. But I finally get excited about this game again and because of numskulls poor planning people can't log in and play the game they are paying for, especially starting an extended weekend. I was actually looking forward to playing this weekend on this server however due to the player restrictions looks like that is going to be an uphill battle this entire weekend just to log in.

    Calm down. It will get fixed. The initial rush is always like this and in a couple days everyone is having fun without login issues.
