Hiss?

If you’re an EverQuest II player, then you’ve likely been having a rough time logging in to the game over the last week. A forum thread recounts login problems that have been cropping up as early as this past Wednesday, which have been traced back to “service provider level networking issues” according to one post in the thread.

EQII’s ops and engineering teams have been working with the game’s CDN provider and have gotten close to a solution, but at the time of this writing, a fix being executed this Sunday is still being called “non-final with adjustments being made that may alleviate the issues for some players.” In other words, not everyone may see a correction with this fix push.

For the time being, the Heroes’ Fest 16-year anniversary event is being extended until Thursday, November 19th, and may be extended further. In addition, one player has found a possible workaround for launcher hanging issues that players may want to try, barring any other updates in the related issues thread.

As a Canadian who tried to login its a shame on how long this game has been shutdown. Its not the end of the world as it pertains to real life but doesn’t seem like a great business decision not to have this up and running ASAP.

For some Canadians it has been. Seems ok now though just checked.

Still going. Was such a great game in its early years and would be doing OK now if SOE and Daybreak had actually put some love, work, money, and advertising into it…and also not tried to make it a bad WoW clone.

They’ll milk it until the last player cancels their sub and then shut it down.

This poor game should just be put out of its misery :( it’s a travesty what SOE and Daybreak did– utter neglect and no love for a game that could still be going strong if they had invested a bit more into it.
