EverQuest II’s prison server is a ‘one-way trip for an entire account forever’

Are you an EverQuest II troublemaker? You could find yourself exiled to a server called Drunder if you’re a habitual rule-breaker. In a new forum post, Daybreak refers to Drunder as “a prison server,” and one from which there is no escape other than quitting the game!

Daybreak’s customer service people have been requesting something like Drunder for years in order to “manage disruptive players,” and CS will decide who ultimately winds up behind virtual bars. Drunder players will get no customer support, and Daybreak emphasizes that “this is a one-way trip for an entire account forever.”

If you want to see Drunder for yourself, Daybreak says that instead of attempting to disrupt live server gameplay you can simply /petition and ask to be exiled.

FlyinDutchman so what’s the terrible part? They’re paying you to let them stand in the corner and keep their terribleness away from the nice people. They get to play how they want, nobody gets hurt anymore, and you still get paid.

That seems….. Like a terrible Idea. 

If they are so bad you have to put them on a prison server, Just ban them. 

Giving them a server with no customer support is basically just saying. 

“Your a terrible person, but we REALLY want you to keep paying us money so just go stand over there by your-self…. But please don’t leave.”

It’s a humorous idea, but in reality, offenders aren’t going to pay $15 a month (Drunder is pay to play) to play EQ2, separated from all the players they like scamming.  Instead, they will just roll new free Bronze accounts and level up again on the live servers.  You can easily reach 100 in a week these days on live anyway.

JulyaD The article specifically mentioned it was a one way trip, for your entire account, forever…

So to fix your analogy:

There isn’t a cure for “Troll”. Instituting a time-based grace period, with a get out of jail free card at the end, just sets up an easily obtained goal. A goal, that when gained, will allow them to join the general population again to start their disruptions anew.

I think maybe I’m not explaining myself properly as you’re completely missing the point.
My comment wasn’t to illicit ‘how can I get round the forever ban’, there are enough discussions about all that elsewhere if you wish to advise on what options you have once you’re there.
The point was to draw attention to the point that Joe Bloggs reading this article thinks that he can petition to have a look at the prison server without being aware that he can’t then transfer back. It’s irresponsible journalism to tell someone they can do something *and how to do it* without also warning of a *major * consequence of doing so..
Here’s a bottle of poison, to drink, squeeze the cap and turn in the direction indicated then consume. (Oh did I neglect to include that it will kill you..?)

MyNameIsIllegal Neo_Wolf syberghost combine with hardware fingerprinting and you can make something really nasty. But that requires careful implementation. Daybreak has something, I don’t know its details.

PizzaDoh Nucleon Studies have shown that trolls actually do have a hive mind. I have no studies to back up this claim :P
