If we went to Perenolde, I have an old 60 human priest and an old NE 60 hunter. Of course, that's 10 under the lvl cap and the gear would be way dated.
Don't think i could stand WoW. I really don't like anything about it. I'd honestly prefer eq2 if it's the same to you and you want to do this. I agree on the carebear servers though. I wouldn't be able to play casually on a pvp server because i'm too competitive. That wouldn't be good for the other things in my life.
Also, in EQ2, raids are capped at 24 players, which imo is pretty ideal. It's a lot easier to organize and combined with the interchangeability of EQ2 classes, it's a lot easier to get going than EQ1. I'm pretty sure it would be possible to build a guild of ex-hardcore gamers once we started playing. Lots of people miss the old days and playing with quality players but lack the time to dedicate to a hardcore guild that requires a 40hr/week commitment, which is the average for most raid guilds. On the flip-side you have the "family" guilds that are really just a bunch of incompetents that turn raids or any sort of group activity into an unsuccessful clusterfuck.
Plus, in EQ2 we could all play the Fae and call our guild SF Fairies. :P
EDIT: then Matt could join and Portnoy could be our mascot.
