The Daily Grind: Are you still on board with EverQuest Next?

    
201

The Daybreak buy-out. Mass layoffs. No more Storybricks. And it might not even be free-to-play!

There are plenty of reasons to go all Chicken Little about EverQuest Next, but strangely enough, I feel practically sanguine about it. I’ve seen all too often how we the community overreact to news without knowing all of the details or how the future will bear out (despite claiming to predict otherwise), and I think that there’s still some strong hope that EQN will not only be released but be an interesting game worthy of the EverQuest moniker.

But that’s just me. What about you? Is your faith shaken in EverQuest Next or are you still on board with it?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Neither more nor less on-board. Just more curious. Rather than changing existing answers to questions, they’re raising new questions, and I like that.

captainzor Storybricks isn’t an AI platform that was removed, it’s a company. The AI remains.

DaEvilGenius I think this is kind of funny, because I’m used to seeing gamer opinion going the other way, against third party involvement.

Yeah they’re continuing in house. I don’t like the sound of that. Sorry.

I was on the fence on EQNext… but was viewing it favorably, however, all the recent changes have me more on the cautious side than the optimistic one.

I’ve reconsidered my stance on this game.  I will NOT be playing it, or anything from Daybreak.

I never was really. They didn’t show anything but barren areas and combat demos.  Was just a testing area for the game. All of most recent modern games SoE/Daybreak has put out has been very middle of the road quality, visuals and gameplay, to me.  I don’t think Daybreak has the capability of living up to the expectations being put up before them, especially now.  I honestly can’t say I have had an amazing time in any recent game from them, save a few Planetside 2 battles, but that was mainly the spectacle of so many players and ships.  

EQN is just going to be rushed at this point and “could” end up being your same old typical MMORPG with voxels thrown in.  It’s going to be a mere shadow of what it was planned to be.

Hate to be negative, but this seems like an all too familiar experience.  Seems to be all downhill from here.

not being f2p would be a plus, not a negative. gw2 has the best setup in my book.
