    It's very easy for new owners of a company to walk into the previous employee of the month's office and tell him to pack up his things, as he's no longer needed.

    Ummm basically they just added all those other games to what we were already paying for Everquest. I don't play them either but we didn't lose anything when it happened.

    Good.
    There was still a small (but loud and annoying) amount of people who sugar talked the current state & development of their games, while everyone else was getting bored to tears.
    It can only get better, if it doesn't no big loss for me.

    When we transitioned to All Access memberships, the price didn't go up. While you have the option of taking advantage of membership benefit in all of our games, you're not paying more to play EverQuest.

    Since Houses are a big project in EQ for me, what's going to happen with the items created by Player's Studio? Sell that too?
  6. Edrick Augur

    Are the developers and coders continuing to work on the next expansion?
  7. Jordis Augur


    Odd, it seems to me that I went from $9.95 a month to $15 and there not having been a choice.
  8. Jordis Augur

    And another question...what about the LoN game and cards that give so many perks to people that play EQ? I wouldn't mind seeing that go away since I don't play LoN, just not good at sorting cards and keeping them all straight.

    Just because you aren't good at something doesn't mean it should go away.

    Let's not kid ourselves, Roshen. You just got bought out by a firm who's primary purpose to to maximize profitability on their investment. If EQ can't be migrated to as many platforms as possible - and considering the age of the code I doubt it can - and turned into a money grab (just look at what happened to Cryptic's design system after Perfect World took them over) then it's gone. You know it, I know it, and anyone with more than three brain cells knows it.

    I've been around EQ a long time and I certainly hope that this change in ownership brings much needed changes to the game that will be positives (say, new character models) but, sadly, I lived the corporate world for far too long and have grown very skeptical.
  11. Roshen Brand Manager


    Yes. As stated in the original post, "all SOE games will continue on their current path of development and operation."
  12. Melanippe Augur


    Except that we do not know what their "current path of development and operation" is so the above statement actually says nothing. Newspeak at its finest. :(

    Is EQ about to gain another 10 dev's for content/upgrades?

    If not that then how was this a good move?

    Because atm this is not good dude. not good at all.

    This is giving me flashbacks to last year when the company I worked for closed our business unit after not seeing the expected return for buying us out a few years back... Not a good feeling. Worked out well for me in the end, but not for many of my friends/co-workers.:oops:

    Sony was losing a ton of money. They expect to report a loss of 230 billion yen (about 2 billion dollars) in the just closed quarter.
  18. Corwyhn Lionheart Augur

    Hasn't been 9.95 a month for EQ in a long time and well before there was All access. You only got a monthly amount like that by getting a 2 year subscription I believe.
  19. Edrick Augur

    Thanks for the reply. I hope you understand the apprehension many of us are feeling right now.
  20. Corwyhn Lionheart Augur

    Until they don't. *sighs*
