I'm working on an Everquest 1 emulator server atm. Would anyone be interested in playing on it?

Watch out, Sony goes after them in a heatbeat. They just took down a popular one called "Winters Roar".

I have made a server before, but i eventually got bored with it. Only me and a few buddies played on it. I seriously doubt Sony would care about 10 - 20 people on a server. 300+ is when they start caring

Anyway, if anyone is interested, email me at Tygerwoody@gmail.com

on Rallos Zek people would use Kelethin as a trader community too. A bunch of goodies. It was so fun to watch people run away and fall down to the bottom. Man, I miss EQ so bad.

If the population was back to normal (500k+ people), and everything post-luclin was taken out, I'd be all over it in a heartbeat. Ahh, the good ol days of just playin around with friends and doing sweet raids

eq emu.... its great

I honestly wouldnt even mind paying 15 bucks a month for any of these eq emulator servers. Alot of them are just great! Even better than the original EQ!(i know thats hard to believe). I did create my own server finally, but its nowhere near as good as these people who have had servers up for 3+ years. SOE needs "The Vision" back or EQ/EQ2 is going to die

With that said, I bet EQ 2 is much better now, but i refuse to join it again because of customer service. SOE charged me for 5 months after i canceled my account due to an error. I calmly and politely called them and let them know about the error and they basically spit in my face. They said they wouldnt refund me anything, even though i hadn't even played the game but for 2 weeks(free trial period from buying the 60 dollar game ). Yea so SOE can kiss my ass.

These days are turning into the "old days" when customer service meant something. It seems to me that people in general are slowly shifting out of this "what is the cheapest price!! I'm going to SurplusComputers.com where they have the ****tiest customer service, but good prices!!!!" to "I'm going to Newegg. Prices are competitive and Customer service cannot be beat". The change in people is slow, but more and more i see people choosing customer service over price, which is a great thing.

Sorry about that tangent, but yea SOE customer service is terrible....

The only issue I had with CS in EQ1 was with a single GM who was an asshat. He basically lied and allowed another guild to Killsteal Ragefire for my Epic Weapon. They even admitted to KSing it...

Asshat is a requirement to be an EQ GM.... Jez everyone knows that

This is what the average EQ GM application looks like

Name: Joe Shmoe

EQ Name: Veran

Do you promise to help others? YES NO

Do you promise to make sure that the banning of people with names that you don't like your number one priority? YES NO

Does Asshat describe your personality? Please circle YES NO ABSOLUTELY

SOE/Verant must have been desparate for people at one time then. I damn well know they didn't pass the GM application form
