Using the RP flag does nothing more then tell other players that you prefer to roleplay (or are roleplaying) so they don't freak out when you start talking weird. RP servers try to enforce RP...

I was getting pretty frusterated at an issue I was having with WoW myself. I was sure it was a game bug, I found out later it was because My processor was not getting enough voltage. WoW is a pretty solid prduct I think alot of people that are having problems are having hardware related issues that they don't know about. Im sure many of them are real problems though.

Regards,
Mike

Come on people, calm down. Just agree to disagree and agree that you all like different games. This banter is pointless.

It's not at all pointless when there's a good discussion like I would like there to be.

No, what i meant was with the attacking/defending argument that seems to have gripped this topic. A nice discussion is good, but this is a tad out of hand

Ah, I believe the 'banter' word put me off. Banter isn't a bad thing

It's all about personal opinion, I can't stand WoW. I do not find it immersive and everything seems way to easy. I just like the "true" fantasy look of EQ.

(By true I mean closer to the D&D/LOTR stuff.)

Did you read what it said egbtmagus?

Edit: "World of Warcraft is derivative of some previous online role-playing games, especially EverQuest, which earned our PC Game of the Year Award in 1999." From the link you talked about...

Eh so it did earn an award. /shrug

No I don't read End of the Year awards or watch any type of award shows (oscars or whatever). Most awards are bought...

Just curious, how long did you play the game? Unless you're one of those masochistic MMORPG players who like 10-hour xp grinds to gain a single level, WoW isn't just a walk in the park once you get past the noob zones.

"True fantasy" best describes my view of World of Warcraft through its creative art design and excellent, extremely deep back story. There are several plot threads within the game itself as well which unfold over time, and players take an integral role in them which, to me, is very immersive. I don't know much about the story behind Everquest 2 so I can't really comment, but as far as art direction goes I find it hard to believe that anyone would prefer EQ2 over WoW.

It sounds to me like you had your mind made up before you ever played the game, just like everyone who refused to play Zelda: WW because of the cel-shaded graphics. Not that WW didn't suck, it did, but not because of the graphics.
