The End of The Road Is Near!

So, today I bought Cataclysm for us. Yay! We're all set for the big day! I'm mostly messing around on various alts and on occasion the mains(s). Just doing some fun laid back questing, that's enough for me. I should be grinding out daily quests for gold but I don't feel like it right now. Maybe tomorrow! I'm excited though.

Dire hasn't had a whole lot of time to play WoW lately and his interest runs in spurts these days but I think Cataclysm will be a nice change for him, offering more things to keep him interested. He's even mentioned making a goblin once he has a main to 85. 

Lately EQ2 has been getting some attention with some new claims and Velious getting closer. I saw in my mailbox an ad for EQ2: Pay for Dec-Fed and order Velious and you get rewards. A new race (vampires) and a wold mount and I'm not sure what the third is. I don't like the idea of being baited to play. Isn't it enough that I want to play the expansion? So if you miss out you'll never get to play the new race? NOT COOL SOE... I'm losing faith in you here.

Furthermore John Smedly claims "We have five years of World of Warcraft experience behind us to know that people that play EverQuest II don't play World of Warcraft." Really? *Chuckles..* That's odd to hear, I play both. I don't always play both at the same time, for the most part, because I don't have the attention span to focus on more than one MMO at a time. I sometimes do. Sometimes. That's why I didn't do so well with a station pass. I'm just sayin' Mr. Smed- I consider myself an avid fan and part of both WoW and EQ2 communities.

So, I'm ready for Cataclysm, I'm just not sure if I'm ready for Velious yet. I'm sure I will be by the time it hits, I just don't like the idea for missing out simply because I took a break. Kaozz is a sad panda, SOE.


  1. It would have been safer for Smedley to have said "most people". In that regard, it's an accurate statement. Most people do not play both. Not to defend the guy, though. He has ****** in my cornflakes on much more than one occasion.

  2. I agree, it would have been a better way to phrase it.

    I know a lot of gamers who play both. Friends and other bloggers. There are dedicated people who only play one MMO and I suppose he is speaking of them but the audience is broader and it's more of a close minded way of looking at the big picture.
