EverQuest kicks off 16th anniversary with player-designed missions today

It was 16 years ago today that EverQuest welcomed players into its 3-D world and in so doing helped to propel MMOs to greater popularity. A good anniversary shouldn’t pass by unobserved, and the team has seven new player-designed missions that are going live today.

These player missions will run for six weeks and mark the start of a string of in-game events for EverQuest’s sweet sixteen. Upcoming events include Brew Day (starting March 18th), Bristlebane Day (starting March 25th), Stomples Day (starting April 1st), and a reprise of past player-designed missions throughout the month of April.

trumanlee4 This is called nostalgia, I may be “New age” mmo player, starting with vanilla WoW but really getting into with WOTLK, I log in Wildstar everyday just for the tight nit community, and I have played Eq1, it’s a mess compared to todays mmos. Even considering how old it is.

Happy 16th, EQ.

The sad part of this is that the “YEAR OF EVERQUEST” Sony declared for EQ’s 15th year is over. I would not say they ended the milestone year in a positive manner, but I can still be hopeful.

I wish I could warp every new age MMO player back to 1999 so they could experience how great and how significant EQ was to this genre. If I told you it was just amazing to log in /sit and talk to the wonderful community all day, you would probably ask me why would you do that? Or how I would genuinely be scared out of my mind to even attempt to progress through the lands because of the real fear of death and loosing your corpse. Or how I would gladly tip a pretty penny to a fellow druid for buffs. 
Nothing I say could ever do justice to how amazing MMO’s were 15 years ago. They have truly lost their magic, whats funny is I still to this day try every new launch trying to find something that can even get close to the immersion EQ offered almost two decades ago.

The best game ever made with the best community.  So many enduring friendships I have made in Norrath (TP and AB servers).  I really miss the long hours of camping and chatting with group and guildmates.  No game will ever again have that sense of family.

Dang, now I *really* feel old.  I remember picking up game the day before the launch and was all excited.  I had just dropped a pair of 8MB Voodoo2’s in my system.  Fancy stuff back then. :D

To think this game is older than some of you young grasshoppers. :D

Dnote You should have another look. There are quite a few missions/quests at all stages of the game now, with a proper quest journaling/tracking system.

What exactly are these player designed missions?

Last time I played EQ there were no missions outside of LDON and the handful of quests related to special items / epics.

thatchefdude Same. Still have my original account. Might have to dust it off some since I have mostly been in EQ2 and not this one.
