You Ever Wondered What it Would Be Like to “Know Then What You Know Now”?

February 15, 2011

A lot of us (especially once we grew older) have probably wondered what it would be like to have a “do over” but this time with the added knowledge that you gained along the way your first time around.  Well, if you ever played the original Everquest, and ever pined for “the good old days”, now’s your chance to have your cake and eat it too.

Today marks the day that SOE opens up their latest progression server: Fippy Darkpaw.

What’s great about this particular progression server is that it’s going to launch in a state that is as close as the Dev’s could make it to the original life-stealing, marriage-ruining, song-inspiring game that was Everquest back in 1999.  It will progress at a pace dictated by the community with actual votes being taken as to when to unlock the next expansion etc.  All in all it should be a grand time to be had by all, so long as everyone remembers that it was actually a different and much more… demanding game than a lot of games that have since come and gone.  I for one, am excited about the opportunity and am raring to go… now if only I could come up with a way to get out of work early today….

    In an odd twist of fate, I resubbed to Final Fantasy XI for the exact opposite reason listed here – they just dropped a patch that will exponentially make leveling less of a chore. Also, the level cap was recently expanded.

    For me – going back and getting to see parts of the game that I didn’t get to the first time around is the draw, not reliving the past. Plus I may have convinced my former roommate to log back in to Vana’Diel, as well. It’ll be fun to kick around together again.
