Apparently it’s been a rough scene in both EverQuest games over the past few months. And this isn’t coming from our readers; Darkpaw’s Jen Chan came out to say as much in a lengthy letter to both communities.
Chan promised more transparency and addressed issues such as the extended downtime of late May, problems with lag, and the balance between getting content out quickly while testing it thoroughly. “I’ve asked the team to double down on our current efforts in stability, performance, and quality,” she said.
As compensation for the issues, EverQuest II is giving all players a Samenda Honorhoof mount, while EverQuest is tossing its players a 25% XP bonus on all servers that will run from now to the 17th. And speaking of improving quality, EverQuest II put out a bundle of fixes yesterday, so make sure you read up on those patch notes.
