I talked SO… MUCH… CRAP about EverQuest 2. I was so bitter and jaded, based on my experiences in EverQuest 1. I was especially bitter and cautious due to the early hardware problems I ran into, which delayed my entry with the guild that was forming from a bunch of people I met on a forum. As it turns out, I was probably better off not jumping right in. The early version of the game didn’t sound that great. From what I hear today, it wasn’t. Sometime in early ’08, I would get an email from a good friend I made on EQ1, inviting me to join an EQ2 branch of their guild. I gave it a try and I loved it. I made some more friends. Unfortunately, there was also more drama, but that’s to be expected. Today, I mostly play on my own, but that’s more due to my free time. I hope to get back to some grouping and maybe even raiding after things settle down in the real world.
