Re: Everquests Facebook news

If you were inactive when the problems started I'm pretty sure you won't be given an 'additional 30 days' - since you didn't have any days to start with. ;p

Re: Government Shutdown

Then why did the Democrats push through the healthcare reform ( 60–39, 219–212), repeal of DADT (65-31, 250-175), and Wall Street reform (60-39, 237-192 ) without bi-partisan support? My God, even CNN has started questioning why the Democrats did not pass a budget for FY11. The political reality is...

Re: Government Shutdown

Okay, Democrats are right. It is the Republicans fault that a budget was not passed for FY11 in September of 2010. It was the Republicans fault that the Democrats did not even bring the bills to the floor for a vote. It was the Republicans fault that the Democrats were able to vote and pass healthc...

Re: Government Shutdown

Just so I'm clear... You're blaming the Democrats for *NOT* forcing through a budget last year against the wishes of the Republican party? The fault here is that neither side is willing to compromise - they weren't last year and they still aren't now. To blame one party exclusively for this mess is...

Re: Government Shutdown

I would rather march on the houses of Congress - they are the ones that have to come up with and ratify a budget before it goes to the President.

Re: Balinar-dareba-morg

ahhh, assuming I ever decide to resubscribe to an SoE product I might have to get the station pass and pop on to say hi. How many expansions have they had? 2? My PC probably still wont like EQ2 though :x Four expansions thus far for EQ2 (plus some Adventure packs here and there) - all of which are ...

Re: Balinar-dareba-morg

Lachaise does not play eq, from my recollection he did dabble in WoW but I think he plays RL now. Sid is a rare spawn. Bossman Jhereg is still around. I did not even realise EQ2 had problems, I heard Vanguard is basically dead but I thought EQ2 was bumbling along reasonably Lachaise is playing EQ2 ...

This is correct - there are quite a few folks from EQ1 CN still kicking about on the Unrest server. You can find us in Order of the Open Hand, as Jhereg mentioned.

I can name names - if you are interested - but I think they are already mostly spelled out in this thread in various places.

One thing I will say - you can't install the game on any machine that I'm aware of and just run it the way you would expect. You almost HAVE to follow on of the .ini tweak guides to make it play in an acceptable manner. I have Pentium Dual Core 3.4g, 2gig memory and dual 7800 Nvidia cards using SLI....

Well - there-in lies the rub - with it being so new, it isn't really performance tweaked yet. My system (which runs EQ2 famously on higher settings) has a bit of an issue in highly populated sections of Vanguard. Luckily that is almost exclusively reserved to the Cities - so once you branch out in y...

Though I'm not active in CN (or EQ1 atm) - I am playing Vanguard quite a bit on Woefeather. I'm currently a 13th lvl. Death Knight (Dark Elf) and have found myself painfully hooked on it. In fact, having maxed out a character in EQ2 and not being big on the Alt-thing, I have been spending much of my...

It's all a matter of perspective, I suppose. I belong to a number of forums where people who were/are die-hard EQ1 fanatics - played EQ2 when it came out, left to WoW or back to EQ1 - have now come back to EQ2 and are thrilled to death. As you allude to - EQ1 has the benefit of having been around fo...

I have far more pity for those that lay commentary decrying something they have never taken the steps to try... ;p

But hey - to each their own - I prefer to keep on the cutting edge of gaming and leave the 1980's technology where it lie.

What was/is your character name in EQ2 and server, I would be interested to see how many levels you managed to make it through.
