will eliminate positions in both its San Diego and Austin studios. This alignment of resources better positions the newly independent studio for future growth opportunities and developments, including delivering on its legacy of making top online games and establishing a solid foundation for future multi-platform success


Hm....This is such a half-truth. Better position because we'll be making more money.

I am on a "forced" hiatus but quite frankly I will not be spending anymore money on the game until I see how stuff falls out. Good news...I'm paid up through August which means Littlabit can kill me for two months after I get back :D

The bad news if Everquest shuts down for me is, I'll miss a lot of the people I've played with over the years (Yes, this is the real Goofy typing) and I will miss the game itself. I will be upset that 13+ years of accomplishment will disappear like that. The good news is, I'm well established in Guild Wars 2 and Star Wars: The Old Republic and have about 20 other games I've always wanted to explore and spend time in but never had the time to play enough. I will get that chance to do that. I prefer Everquest not disappearing, but I won't commit suicide over it. I'll adept.

Shut up, Goofy. We know the minute EQ shuts downs you will cease to exist. Upfront, I call dibs on your SC!

I have Rift, too. Just haven't had the time to get to far in to it, thanks to EQ.

They let go one of the lead designers, Adam "Ngreth" Bell. Looks to be about it so far.

A slew of folks from CR are gone, too, from what I've read. I was surprised when I read they let Ngreth go :/.

Currently Playing Rift also. They've made some nice changes that allow you to play with any level friend, no matter what level you are. You can either scale up to them, or they can come down to your level and you can quest / dungeon run / pvp with them.

I've only soloed in Rift. Like in all the games I play, I usually don't group. Everquest is the only game I've ever played with others and that is only because somebody back in the day when I was level 50 or so bugged me until I joined Tribal Fury. It was just downhill for them since then.

Here's a list of the people that were laid off. The majority of those affiliated with EQ actually were part of the EQ2 team, which has me thinking that if any game is going to be shut down it would be EQ2 and not EQ. https://www.reddit.com/r/EQNext/comment ... e_layoffs/

So sad, I met Ngreth.. he was the tradeskill promoter.

I will move somewhere if EQ shuts down.. doubt it will be WOW, guilds there did not have the get to know you thing we do here on EQ.

There's only 8 rift servers left, However they have implemented Intra-game shard switching (servers). Soo you can basically go on any server and play with anyone else on a diff server. I do not know if guilds are cross server though. Im currently playing on Faeblight server.

I have a Rift account I just found. I might start playing again this week for giggles. I both love and hate being able to switch classes model. On one hand it's nice to switch to healers when it's needed, but on the other I like being able to stay static for an identity like in EQ. Patches change the game so much that builds become outed, so you always have to find the latest post to stay up to date on what's the FOTM build(s).
