Don't forget those raids weren't the contested raid zones/mobs, just the ones that were available to casual raiders. Is Trakanon FFA? Only 7D knows.

Not Classic! [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

But seriously, wouldn't P99 raiding be like a million times better if we had that instead of bat phones? Maybe not to the "poop socking is my life" crowd, but for just about everyone else.

I'm neither ranting nor flaming here Loramin, but for someone who doesn't raid you're very vocal about how raiding should be done.

There is a difference between "I enjoy raiding content." versus "I enjoying raiding content by beating other players to it." This server caters to players who prefer the latter - see the comments by Rogean and nilbog.

If this server is a million times worse for you because of that focus, why not go to a server that mandated rotations or offered instances, instead of trying to change this server into something it has never been?

Someone's defensive about their poop socking!

Look, two things. First off, Rogean and Nilbog have never said they're "100% team competition". Rogean is pretty big on "competition" yes, but Nilbog was talking about implementing instances for Pete's sake: that's like the polar opposite of competition (and Rogean did not explicitly shoot the idea down either).

Second, none of that matters. I'm allowed to have an opinion that's not the same as either Rogean or Nilbog. And that opinion definitely is that of someone who raids.

I love that Anonymous/AEGIS has predictable/scheduled raids. I love knowing that certain things are happening on certain nights so that I can tell the wife "I'll be killing dragons on Friday so you have to get dinner". To me that's the best of all worlds: getting to raid, with lots of other lovers of classic EverQuest, content I never got to twenty years ago ... but not having to sacrifice my real life to a video game just to be able to play it.

And this isn't some crazy un-classic modern desire: as the OP showed it was happening for people back in 2001 on some servers (it happened to a lesser extent on my server, Bristlebane, where I once "won" the rotation for Vox and got to lead an open raid on her, which was one of the high points of my entire time playing on live).

You're welcome to your opinion, but the fact that you feel the need to attack me for mine (outside of RnF no less) says far more about you than it does about me.

My comment was not intended as an attack, and I didn't say you were not entitled to an opinion.

There are people that want to experience classic content, and there are people that want to experience classic content in a "competitive" environment against other players and guilds. This server caters to the latter.

It caters to both, in varying degrees. You're myopic if you can't see that.

For someone who hasn't been raiding very long, you're also very vocal, Monrezz.
