EQ1 is crap if you play it now..

Brain has the power of only remembering the good things and all the fun.
If EQ1 is so good why arent you guys playing it now? if its the best mmorpg ever? its still running go and play it then...

No, it's because they changed the gameplay radically from what it once was. When Verant was still in control it was great. Kunark change much. Luclin changed a lot, and that's when the downfall happened. Nerfs after nerfs. They took away the purpose for certain class abilities like Druid's teleports (plane of knowledge, I believe). I didn't like the bazaar, WC was way more fun! They also made the game way easier, and caved into dumb fan demands.

So, when it was new, yes it was better than anything today.

Depends how one dies. People who die in stupid ways inside instances can be uneffected if they have flame proof suits :d That said, and oh man; that was just ridiculous. Made the mistake of largely PuGing kara again, except for 1 other guildie who was organizing it, and I guess a couple people he knew. I can't believe chain wipes on maiden of all things; and for the same stupid reason.

The 2 palies just would not dispel, and then started having major drama over who dispels. Both insisted the other do it Oh, but it didn't end there. One of the pallies who was involved in this drama, then started DCing a lot, and when off for a very long time got removed from raid with another person invited. Only problem, he made it back before the other person could be summoned, and more drama. So the person stood there in the instance, un-partied, demanding that it isn't his fault he's capped, and if he's gonna get removed from group for capping, he'll hold up the instance so no one can do it. After about 20 minutes of him in /s; people finally started to port out, very unhappy and some saying it's time to report him to the game masters for physical harassment (though in raid chat, not where he'd have seen it). His last words

All I can say is, that's one guy to never run with again. Besides lost badges for the week (up to maiden only is rather bad), after all that; well I among others just simply didn't have time to wait this all out. It was about 2 hours before invites for black temple would begin. Man, I really do miss the fun times Gilthanas and I had together, though he no doubt believes otherwise.

I don't think you realize the difference between WoW and Eq (AC or FF XI etc) what you just said only means you don't get invited again by the X people you grouped with. Same thing happens in all MMO's. No biggie getting another character to 70 in WoW doesn't take long. Anyone can solo to 70 in WoW its not that hard.

Things in FF XI that conned "easy" would kick my ass. I had to level to 25 three or four times! There's absolutely no major setback for dying in WoW (or Lotro for that matter). However with the attention span of today's average gamer I don't think these death penalties will be used again.

I played EQ1 for about 3 months.

Took my Wizard to lvl 30. I quit because I got tired of sitting there screaming LVL 30 WIZARD LFG!

And when I do get a group, I got tired of blasting things for a minute or so, and sitting there and having to listen to the other party members grumble for 5 minutes or more of downtime.

I also got sick of begging for SOW or Clarity.

Corpse run wasn't fun either.

I miss Ultima Online.
