I’ll admit, I was excited by the EQNext reveal during the SOE Live weekend and it didn’t disappoint. I think SOE is making the right moves for the next generation MMO. I watched some of the live coverage on Twitch.tv and read some of the recap coverage in the blogosphere. There’s plenty questions that need answered but for a reveal, it did its job masterfully.
Then I read some of the comments and forum posts on said subject. What a mistake. Nothing but knee jerk doom and gloom and comparisons to other games. If I had a penny for every time “fail” was mentioned….you get my point. It was ridiculous. I never knew there were so many unpaid experts out there….SOE should break down their doors to hire them! Rolls eyes.
Here’s my dilemma, I want to keep up with the EQNext news and community but I don’t want to see/read the filth. What to do? Be on your guard, Yes. Stick to writers and sites that I trust, better.
