    How much competition is one server vs an entire game?

    Probably see a lot of current EQ guilds go there?

    Haven't played EQ1 in....6yrs, I don't know actually, so I don't know how much it's changed.

    A 10-year old game competition. rofl ok....like that'll be worth $15/month. I loved EQ at the time I played it, just liked the car I bought 10-years ago when I purchased it. Not a 10-year old one though.

    With all respect to EQ, I seriously doubt I would call this 'competition'.

    Not to say this couldn't be interesting for an a long time EQ player, but the progression servers to date have typically been about guild rush leveling to end game and he who purchases the most Sony Station Cash wins .......The marketing and business model behind this whole thing is simply awsome.

    Getting good players is one thing .... getting ones that play together is another ...

    Most people that wanted classic eq are already playing on one of those classic eq server emulator things.

    Also, hell levels are soo much worse than I even remember them.

    The guild rush progression is being taken out, instead of unlocking whole expantions, they are giving time restraints. For example I think the first expantion wont come out for a couple months.

    Lol... really? This was meant to be a joke right? I'm actually sitting next to a guy who started playing MMO's with EQ, and when I mentioned this post, he spit his coffee all over his keyboard.

    LOL that might work but what will you do in 6 months when the boredom of rinse repeat the same dungeons and raids wears off?

    Haha you guys need to calm down, It was a joke about being actual competition... it was just a timeless game that got worse with new additions, and the first game to realize so by adding progression servers.

    i will not go play it because it's not the EQ i remember.

    station cash and all the other things they did , they were dumbing that game down really bad after planes of power.

    if the play style is the same as when it came out , i would think about it

    I just don't get SOE's fascination with EQ. Of all the games they have, their choice is to offer a progression server to EQ when, with some updates and bug fixes, they have a gem like Vanguard that actually has a chance of being a competitor to current games.

    I'm stunned.
