We'll soon see if the delay is client side only or not. I'm sure the steam content/authentication servers haven't hit max traffic yet. That'll be later today. They've already taken down the steampowered forums....

EDIT: What are the "slow unlockers" PC's specs ?

Just give it time, guys. The server's lagging.

Surprise surprise! It's obvious to expect it to be hit much harder than the 500,000 WoW open beta was. Now for the "We underestimated the demand on our servers" line. Steaming pile!

Anyone with CDs finding their HL2 install to be easier?

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if the pirates are playing right now. How ironic would that be?

The demand is extremely high, the game is out there, the bragging rights are huge, and at the moment no legit customer can play. I'd say this is the ultimate piracy test.

Heheh.. all these people who paid money and have a HL2 box sitting on their desk.. and they can't play single player without getting permission from Valve first.

The story isn't over yet. Everyone will get activated on the same day...

WoW recently made a change to their death system that I really didn't like. If you take the rez from the Graveyard Spirit (whatever its called) you lose 100% durability to all your items, worn and in inventory. I dont think they added exp loss, but they hit your pocketbook because you have to repair the items, plus the time it takes to go find a merchant to repair them before you may continue adventuring.

Yeah, that was a bad move on Blizzard's part and they're going to change it:

- Players will only receive a 25% durability loss instead of 100% when using a Spirit Healer to resurrect.

- Players will now only incur a maximum 10 minutes of resurrection sickness instead of 30 minutes when using a Spirit Healer to resurrect.

We'll see how people react to that change. It's still in OB, so anything is possible. Right now the database lag from some of those 500k OB people are destroying the 40 test servers that are up. It's probably great debugging data for load testing, but it's definitely not a fun time to play.

Anyone that believed the Sept. 30th date would be hit is a naive fool.

Yeah, dumb doo doo heads actually believed what Gabe told them, LOL. Now you actually believe HL2 is going to be released this month!? Fools! Gabe has to tell you it's about to be released because he doesn't have a solid release date to give you yet.

It won't be out until April 1st 2005.

Cheese, quit embarrassing your fellow EQ2 players and learn to communicate like someone who understands English. At least Dagok can discuss the issues without becoming a waste of forum space. I think all WoW players will agree that you made the right choice to play EQ2.

Even Dagok can agree that the 4 player limit is a problem. I see that as a huge problem for power gamers. It's a problem that can be solved, but I can't believe SOE is thinking of charging extra for more characters. Not when you can have 50 in WoW.

Experience loss means more level grinding, even if a level isn't lost. I have a problem with grinding for 2 hours to recoup one death. Hopefully, it's not that bad.

PvP should be added, but then again it's not for everyone. My guild didn't bother with EQ2 because of it.

Maybe the pros outweigh the cons, but I'm not going to pay money to find out when competition like WoW is out there.

Are there still only 4 characters total per account in EQ2? And are they going to charge you if you want more?

Is there still experience loss on death and is it now shared between members of a group?

No PvP? That in itself is reason enough to skip it for me. Although, I'd prefer that both EQ2 and WoW are both successful because quite frankly I'm worried that WoW will end up with more customers than it can deal with.

Actually, I'm hoping alot of people try EQ2, because too many people want to play WoW right now (500,000). Hopefully, there will be fewer people hammering the servers after release. So please, give me a month or two of lag free WoW game time and give EQ2 a shot first.

If it weren't 3 years since I became tired of playing DAoC, I'd probably reactive my account too.

The difference is, I'd rather not pay to beta test.

What's this about EQ2 only allowing 4 chars total for all servers combined? WoW allows 10 chars.. per server (up to a maximum of 50 per WoW account).

To the WoW dev team: BUY MORE SERVERS

As for the AG, being hated just comes with the territory. Since when was there an AG that people liked? Or are there Janet Reno fans out there...

Dosent matter cause EVERY web site thats reviewed EQ2 and compared it to Wow said EQ2 is the one to buy?

http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/561210.asp?q=Everquest%202

http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/534914.asp

Now WoW isn't out yet, but IMO EQ2 is going to lose in the battle of reviews, if that's what your argument was based on.

how come im playing for like several hours and no one is even griefing?

Um, because at the moment there is no PvP in EQ2. It's a 100% PvE game.

I reached level 20 in GW over the weekend and was surprised that this was the max level for retail as well. Although, you can still "level" and get points to boost skills/attribs. The GW system of trade is terrible with everyone is spaming WTB/WTS. I guess I'm spoiled by the WoW auction house and mail system.

Saying GW is an alternative to WoW is like saying Rome: Total War is an alternative to WoW. It's something to buy and try, but it's a different game.
