When the Rumors Don’t Match the Studio’s Capabilities

Daybreak’s recent layoff shakeup caused a lot of people (myself included) to sincerely doubt the future of their portfolio. Inevitably, whenever layoffs like this occur, some people take to the internet and do a little “tell all” — usually on Reddit. This has been no exception.

An unnamed ‘leaker’ took to Reddit with a post about what’s happening with EverQuest, Planetside, H1Z1/Just Survive, etc.

Here are the highlights:

  • H1Z1 limping along
  • Just Survive probably sunsetting
  • Planetside 2 limping along
  • Planetside 3 in development as a battle royale / territory builder
  • EverQuest & EverQuest 2 are getting final expansions
  • Everquest 3 is in development again to compete with Pantheon and will be a team-based battle royale pvp game
  • DCUO still exists

Okay. Let’s get real here for a second.

What’d You Play This Weekend? I Played an MMO!

This weekend got away fast. I had lots to do on Saturday and Sunday, so I ended up only getting in a little bit of time on the one game I played a bunch of: EverQuest.

Yep, I played EverQuest again! That shouldn’t come as a surprise, seeing that I posted about it several times recently. We’re on the Coirnav progression server having a good time. It’s exactly the same as every new progression server, though. If that hasn’t been your thing in the past, no reason to expect it to be any different this time around.

I Guess I’m Playing EverQuest

Two days ago I sounded really hesitant and said I was 50/50 on whether or not I would play again. I told the K&G Community I’d play again if others played with me, and before I knew it there was a team of people assembling once again.

So unless something changes and everyone backs out, I’m playing a Dwarf Cleric. The rest of my team consists of a Monk, Enchanter, and Paladin. If you’re wanting to join us in 3 weeks, be sure to make yourself known in our Discord.

We’re pretty much casuals. Some of us are uber casuals with young kids and only play at night while others are casual but will play throughout the day. We’re not hardcore. We won’t be power-leveling like the pros — meaning we won’t be level 50 in less than a week. We won’t be raiding. Right from the start our plan is clear that unless we stumble bassackward into a raid, we won’t be aspiring to do any. I don’t even know if we’re forming a guild. We’re grouping and showing up to the fun.

The Lost Art of the Enchanter

Playing an Enchanter on EverQuest's TLP Agnarr server has reminded me of how much the art of the Enchanter class has been lost on modern MMOs. Enchanters fill a role…
