WoW Launches

The World of Warcraft Community Site (thanks Frans) reflects on the launch of Blizzard's highly anticipated MMORPG in North America, Australia, and New Zealand. The update admits to problems created by the rush of new WoW players, and offers some suggestions on how to circumvent launch issues in the short-term as they work "around the clock to ensure we can smooth out this initial rush, and we will be working through Thanksgiving to address the latency issues that players are experiencing."

#24 Nothing do to with hating SOE but more with the bullshit Zurra is posting. I could almost believe he was a market-droid working for SOE with that simplified and over-rejoicing EQ2 posting of his.

Edit: It does not matter which game can push the most shaders, pixels or textures when the entire game feels 'wrong' because of it. EQ2 feels like a bunch of stuff thrown together into a mix, take the chat system from SWG, the console feel from AC2, the grind from EQ1 and carebearize it, and you have EQ2.

Saying the quests in EQ2 are so much better than those in WoW? Thats utter bullshit. "EQ2s quest send you out into th world", YEa, you get to ZONE! Something you hardly do in WoW unless you enter a instanced dungeon, and run around dodging "scowls at you ready to attack" mobs while trying to find a non-descript building with a npc inside.. and then you run to another location. Well, if you want to run long distances to talk to someone there are many of those quests in WoW as well - but you have a lot easier time finding the people you are looking for, not to mention you dont run around in a dead landscape with a bunch of Grouped NPCs with two Arrows in their name (Arrows indicate that they are really more difficult than what your con says - so you need a group) cluttered around locations that they do not "fit" into at all.

Both games have fed-ex quests, kill quests and collection quests. In EQ2 you can have 50 of those damn quests at one time, disorganized in your quest-helper, in WoW you can have 20 quests at one time. Doing a lot of quests in both games I had a lot easier time doing the quests in WoW and also finding out what I was supposed to do, and where.

Edit2: Hey, how about telling us how much better the CHAT system and the EMOTES system in EQ2 is as well.. I'm dying to hear it.
