I don't think there are BLs. I just checked the list.

No BLs. I also had one in EQ1. They were very fun to play. What are your play times? I'm eastern time and would prefer to be in bed by 1am at the latest but I'm pretty flexible as long as I have friday nights off for going out. Don't intend to kill my social life again. :P

We should definitely try and choose classes based on the tank/healer/DPS,DPS,DPS formula. I was actually mistaken about my class. My existing char is a swashbuckler, but I could sell his gear and reroll a tank, which is my preference in group play. I was soloing with the swashy... I like to be the guy pulling so that I can control the pace (meaning very fast). I'm not sure if anything has changed but my first char was a guardian and they were the best tanks in the game and tended to do all the pulling (as opposed to eq1 where monks/rangers did a lot of pulling). This knowledge is based on regular xp groups. In raids it's likely different but I never played that long.

Swashbucklers are very fun to play, but not for the lazy gamer because their high damage attacks are positional.

Wow, I haven't really played games since the Nintendo (not super nintendo, just nintendo) and maybe a few computer games years ago (think civilisation I) and clicked on this thread out of curiosity. I can honestly say I have no idea what you guys are talking about, sounds like Balinese to me...

I guess it is a testament to the complexity of the modern gaming world...

You'd be blown away. These games are in the $30 million+ range for development, and games like World of Warcraft are taking in over $100 million a month in subscription fees. It's a huge thing.

Not to try and thwart your EQ2 parade, but if anyone wants to start a new toon on WoW, I'm game.

If we did WoW, I'd prefer a carebear server. I get caught up in PvP and it could ruin an evening. As in, I would get pissed one of my low toons was getting ganked so I'd pull in my mage and camp an entire fucking town out of spite. 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.

Oh I'm familiar with it as an industry and know creative and management types who do work for some of the important companies, I just don't bother checking the games themselves as the stuff kinda bore me, especially compared to the social phenomenom.

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.

The message boards are, a type of video, game.

Can one pronounce MMPORPG?

I'm sort of guessing that it is something similar to this:

umm.POR.pig

Warhammer is built by the same company that runs "Dark Age of Camelot" which has many of the same features but different lore.
I am sure they have a free trial. If you like it you are a gonner ...
