Global Chat: The EverQuest Fippy Awards


The EverQuest Show is starting the year with a for-fun awards ceremony featuring the two EverQuest MMOs. Who will win? Who will lose? Will this be a better use of your time than sitting through the Oscars?

“Aether Wroughtlands – Best New Zone in EQ2. The vibrant mix of prismatic colors in various sections of Aether Wroughtlands brings a beauty to EverQuest II and its a show of commitment by the team that a high quality of artistic content is still added to the game, even 20 expansions later.”

Oh look, quick development.

Parallel Context is having a lot of fun finding funny guild names in WoW Classic: “The variety of guild names that I’ve found on WoW Classic Season of Discovery servers is quite impressive. I wasn’t joking when I mentioned in a comment somewhere that I had enough for another post on guild names, and that was a few days ago.”

The Ancient Gaming Noob is wrapping up Wrath Classic: “I know for non-raiders there is some trepidation with the coming of Cataclysm Classic.  There is a feeling that the “classic” era is over and witnessing the destruction of vanilla might be a bridge they do not care to cross again.”

Through Wolfy’s Eyes is pleased as punch that City of Heroes is official: “It just feels more tangible now. More feasible. More like it’s actually back. It is weird how the Homecoming crew have communicated this whole thing, speaking with what feels like mild, frigid terror instead of excitement or relief.”

In An Age has complicated feelings about Hearthstone killing its duels mode: “What we can say though is that Blizzard is apparently in a period of… consolidation. Classic? Removed. Duels? Removed. Mercenaries? Still exists, but has been sunsetted permanently.”

Tales of the Aggronaut hasn’t been won over by dragonriding: “Don’t get me wrong… for World of Warcraft having access to flying almost immediately in this expansion is revolutionary. Mechanically the system is fine and does what it is supposed to do… but the system it copied homework from just feels better.”

The Friendly Necromancer wants to gather all cantrips in Wizard101: “I decided to log back into Wizard101 and see if I could recreate some of the magic that’s there for me, and quickly discovered that, yes, indeed, there is magic! Specifically cantrips!”

Every day there are tons of terrific, insightful, and unusual articles posted across the MMO gaming blogosphere — and every day, Justin reads as many as he can. Global Chat is a sampling of noteworthy essays, rants, and guides from the past few weeks of MMO discourse.
