I loved the original Everquest, i'm not big on MMORPG's since i quit WoW but looking forward to more info on this title, hopefully they can bring something original to the genre.

I cant believe im excited for a mmo again. Smart idea with player studio so they can make money that way instead of nickel and diming players with microtransactions because you know they are going to make money off every thing a player sells there. I cant believe this is free to play as well. I need a few things confirmed before i decide to buy but its looking good.

Soon done watching the second video, their approach to the "holy grails" is quite refreshing, i really liked the rallying calls concept, if they do get it right this will be quite a gaming experience.

Interesting that they are rebooting almost everything including the lore. They even got the original lore guy from the first EQ to do it. The videos are a little boring for my tastes but im not a lore guy. enjoy!

Thanks for the videos HJ.

Well, the original everquest had PVP servers and non PVP servers.

I'm guessing and hoping they will have the same in this game.

I have been making the rounds on many forums and many people are being complete crybabies about the no trinity confirmation. I gotta say one of the main reasons i have come to hate MMOs is because of that system.

Here is the breakdown
Healer - Heal the tank and if you cant people yell at you and say you are terrible
Tank - Keep aggro and if you cant people yell at you and say you are terrible
DPS - If the healer runs out of mana you are not killing fast enough so people yell at you and say you are terrible
If your main healer and/or tank decide to leave you and your whole guild are screwed.
THIS IS NOT FUN!!
That system was there because MMO AI is usually beyond horrible so the trinity system was the only thing that was close to working. SOE are promising better. They are promising that the AI is so much improved that you wont need the trinity system. I will say i am skeptical but i hope they can do it because i want the trinity system gone. I really love what they are trying to go for and if they can deliver i will be there day one. Its time for change and i really think EQN has the potential to get it done.

Just finished watching the debut videos and I'm quite liking the look and sound of it. As for the holy trinity this is the reason why I like Guild Wars 2 so much as well as its dynamic events, it has completely broken the mould on the MMO genre in general and it looks like EQ Next will be going the next big step, user-generated content, if it works out the way they're making it out to be then it'll be the next big MMO - whether WoW addicts will move across is another thing though as they're stuck in their own world.

I have to admit that I like the fact that the game is using voxels instead of polygons, I've always been a fan of voxels ever since the Delta Force and Outcast games but no other games seemed to use them, that was probably because of the crazy amount of processing was required at the time, nowadays it looks like it's the right time to use them if this game is anything to go by.

I'll be keeping a close eye on this one as well as the world building tools (forgot the name of it already :p).

EverQuest Next Landmark
Its not just tools its a separate mmo where you have to go out in the world to find mats to create the stuff you want so even if you have guildies that have no desire to build (ME!) they can still explore the world and gather materials to help the builders. Landmark is also free to play.

And that's exactly why I can't wait for it, for me I'll be using it as a means for building stuff for the main game. :D

Seems like in the next few years the Rift is going to be the next biggest thing and consoles are going to wish they added it in for this generation! I know I'll be picking one up anyway, especially for racing games.

Some questions answered
http://www.usgamer.net/articles/red...amer-gets-everquest-next-developers-to-answer


New Round Table question

https://www.everquestnext.com/round-table?poll=all-races-all-classes

Should all races have access to play all classes?
I picked
I want to play any class with the race I choose, even if it means a penalty to some combinations.

I picked that because imagine a dark elf wanting to be a paladin and overcoming the odds to achieve that goal? that sounds like a interesting storyline to me.
(example stolen from neogaf)
