I am not aware what is the most current situation in EQ, due to fact that I got tired of that game totally and haven't played it for 3 months (and probably won't play it anymore, because I don't have it installed in my new machine and Tirrimuna has my CDs in Canada
), but I know some are still playing it. Reasons for quietness are several ...
Holidays, some are playing other games: NC, SWG, LIN2, some quit the game, old core (council) changed server or quit -> more people leaving the guild, boards were down etc...Nothing new I must say
Only this time these incidents were too much for some of us (me included) and now at least I am waiting new good game to be launced (WoW seems to be it...I have my doubts on EQ2)
Maybe someone who still playes could report something.
But anyway have fun playing what ever game you play
