Although EQ fans complain about WoW and its younger community they don't tell you that WoW is much more friendly when you are out in the world. People always help you when you are question. The place WoW gets a bad rap is in the chat channels and forums. Leave those chat channels and don't go near the forums and the game is fun. EQ players are no where near as helpfull.
The biggest differences between the games is EQ2 is more like a job. WoW is more like a vacation, sure you have your kids along with you but you are still having fun.
Man I should paten that quote. LOL
