Remember when EverQuest launched a progression server and everyone rushed to it? Maybe not everyone, but the Ragefire server did launch to completely unexpected levels of player enthusiasm. There are obviously lots of players who at least want a taste of that old-school progression feeling, and that means that the developers need to move quickly to capitalize on it, hence why another server named Lockjaw is set to be added to the mix with the same ruleset.
The team’s hope is to have Lockjaw available and running by the weekend if at all possible while also rolling out more areas for players to use the /pickzone command to swap between incarnations of a zone. Ragefire was built to handle a much greater number of players, but even that apparently wasn’t enough. If you can’t handle the current crowding, you can take heart that more space is on the way.
