    Obsolete... I don't think that word means what you think it means.

    I've known very few Iksar necros. Maybe just one. And I've definitely known more Human and Drakkin monks than Iksar. Full disclosure, my monk is an Iksar because they're cool.

    Iksar necros did have a huge let up on every other race for a while, but now it isn't even an issue.

    Here's a real reason to be frustrated with Daybreak.

    Paying for a founders pack for Landmark and having nothing to show for it.

    I considered the Founder's Pack the same as a Kickstarter-- risky with the possibility of some kind of product at some time... but still not guaranteed.

    The way Landmark was handled I definitely consider a low-point for SoE/Daybreak, I was glad I didn't take that bet, I wanted EQ Next to succeed though despite not liking the art direction they went with at all.

    Biggest disappointment to me though was Free Realms, how they couldn't get that game to make a profit with over 14 million users at one point I just don't know, even now there is really nothing that comes close to encapsulating what that game did.

    Hang on there! Are you saying I didn't start as a player first! Do I have to show you my beta discs!
    Sheesh.

    Don't have this experience. I PM'd Prathun several times during my eq years and he always replied.

    Aristo on the other hand ... :D

    OUT! Get out of the forums and back to your cell.

    Who let the dev escape? Back to making new stuff.

    So it is true.. Absor been around since the beginning of time! Are you secretly The Nameless?!

    This reply is both awesome, and exactly why Absor shouldn't be the one spending his time interacting with players extensively on these forums. Of all the things to reply to...

    Absor has been "the lore guy" for a very long time but "The Nameless" along with most of the EQ pantheon of deities and some major EQ characters predate even Absor as they were conceived and described by Bill Trost as part of his original game lore.

    Maybe the nameless has the ability to inhabit developers though....

    My bad, for some reason I thought you were the one that was around since beta as a dev. I do now recall the thing you posted to some blog or something talking about your beginning as a dev a few years in after having played. Ah well, point still being, anyone being honest and not a tool knows most of the people working on this game spend WAY too much time on it compared to what they are paid for, and its because they are highly invested in it.

    The group is already in place and will be growing - it's always been around - quietly for the most part but it has always existed. You make good points about people need to be reasonable and present their case in the calmest, clearest way and offer suggestions for possible changes. They just don't need to be screamed from the highest peaks.

    Yeah, I really never get that kind of extreme comment either. Fuckups? Sure. Bad choices? I would imagine literally thousands. Times you got the bitchslap or got banned? yeah.

    But contempt for players? What? Comments like that make me wonder if the think they are having dinner at Le Cirque. If this was Le Cirque, see, that would be true. That's the joke, see. If this was Le Cirque, this would be you know, wtf? But it isn't. That's the joke I'm making here, see.

    Just trying to be clear. This thread needs more clarity.

    Wasn't free realms a child's game?
