EverQuest II fan news site EQ2Wire is closing its doors

If you’ve been even remotely active online about EverQuest II over the past nine years, you probably know EQ2Wire. It’s been a long-running and well-maintained fan site for that whole time, and it’s even occasionally had nice things to say about us. However, it’s over now; site maintainer Feldon announced on Friday that the site is calling it quits after its long run.

Why the change? Feldon cites both a number of other projects going on in his life (perfectly understandable) and a deteriorating relationship with Daybreak Games regarding the title. He also states that he no longer even plays the game, which means that his incentive to keep working on it is rather diminished. We’d like to thank Feldon for his long dedication to the title and wish him the best of luck in the future.

“and a deteriorating relationship with Daybreak Games”

Someone still had a good enough relationship with Daybreak Games to have room for it to still deteriorate? Pretty amazing :D

Used to use EQ2Wire when I played the game sad really I’ve lost any and all interest in DBG since EQN.

I used to love this site back when I played EverQuest 2 as my main game. I’m sad to see it go but was actually kind of surprised to see it was still around due to, you know, Daybreak being Daybreak.

My thanks to Feldon for the time, dedication and doubtless finances which he devoted to this project for so long, and always with an integrity that I got the impression wasn’t always reciprocated by SOE/DBG. I too no longer play EQ2 (or any DBG games as they’re no longer in the top tier so far as I’m concerned and the ProSiebensat.1 episode left a very bitter taste) but I do have fond memories of better times at EQ2 and Feldon’s site is a part of those memories. Best of luck in the future.

Daybreak is a disgrace of a company, and here I am stuck with 21,000 in their currency that’s basically useless.

Whaaaaaat? Jeez, well, I wish Feldon the best, thank him for all his dedication over the years, and appreciate his ongoing honestly concerning the title.

Please for the love of games, WB games pull your license for DCuO already so THEYbreak games can go under already.

They destroyed a legendary MMORPG IP….

Yeah I guess the question of was Jack Emmert the talent at Cryptic has pretty much been answered. DCUO is such a cringe worthy letdown these days….but the developer updates are at least worth some comedic value.

I stopped playing EQ2 a few years back but when I did EQ2Wire was a fantastic resource and it will be missed. Good Luck on future projects Feldon, I’m sure there are plenty companies out there that realise the importance of 3rd party sites.

Ok wow this is a real shocker. I wish him well and that site was an amazing resource for the game to have. Man i hate it when long running fan sites like this close. Just like those old EQ2 fan podcast close down. Its like an end of an era.

WHAO!!! HOLD ON… I have to let this sink in OMG.
Feldon’s site was without a doubt the finest goto site any MMO game could have ever wished for.
Feldon, EQ2 was once my home too, after years of searching i finally found a new one in SWL, amazing community, and tough content to master.
