EverQuest II explains Rum Cellar pricing

    
7
Rated a really good decision in an internal poll.

Are you ready to head down into a cellar, get some rum, and become the lord or lady of rum in EverQuest II? Because that’s not really what the Rum Cellar campaign is about, just FYI. Still, you can find out for yourself on April 28th, when the campaign goes on sale for $14.99 as a stand-alone purchase. Players who want to pick this adventure up along with the Altar of Malice expansion – a required component to play through it – will be able to pick up both at a bundle price of $49.99 ($94.99 for the Altar of Malice Collector’s Edition). And, of course, subscribers get a 10% discount. It’s all in keeping with EQII’s new plan to switch to cutting expansions in favor of DLC.

If you’re a little more focused on the community side of things, you’ll want to know that after the latest round of forum and Reddit drama, the community management team over on the official forums asked for player feedback on moderation policies and got… well… lots of feedback. The last post on that thread explains the conclusions and the useful information taken away by the moderation team. Community Manager RadarX writes,

We are going to initiate the edit post policy at minimum on the EQ2 forums.
We cannot re-institute the forum-admin email process based on the resources we have available. We’re discussing what alternatives we can provide. .
We are doing a full review of our moderation process to ensure everyone on our team is fully trained and capable of providing consistent practice across our titles.

“Much like there is no graceful way to use the emergency brake on a train, there is no graceful way to close this thread. This one I think has just about played out entirely and I’d like to close it while it’s still in decent shape.
After 37 pages what did I learn:
Many of you prefer we censor you on a granular level instead of removing an entire post.Some of you believe we regularly suspend peoples games accounts for forum violations.A few of you weren’t going to believe me regardless of what I said.A few of you would prefer we take into account someones contributions instead of using a consistent system of warnings/suspensions. Some of you did not realize the forums are considered an additional service not inclusive to your subscription or purchase. Some of you were unaware that cumulative impact can result in moderation, not just a single extreme post.People had higher expectations than I believed for moderation.Almost everyone wants some type of appeal process.Some of you want blacklisting/complete transparency.There is a perception moderation actions are significantly higher than they are.Things happened a long long time ago which may created rumors.Prayos may in fact be my arch-nemesis due to his fondness for Rocket Raccoon.

LOTRO and EQII expansions make me appreciate SWTOR expansions.
I’m just a TA trying to put food on the table and games in the hardrive. 50 bucks plus a sub?
