I mean stabbing a knife in between all your fingers really fast takes skill too, but that doesn't mean it's fun. Hmm.. A better analogy for EQ PvP would be stabbing all your fingers with a knife really fast.

So do you enjoy running up to someone's hit box, toggling auto attack, and running off? Seriously? Jousting is absolutely pants-on-head retarded and always will be. That's not simply not engaging PvP entertainment.

Turning off attack and then turning it back on at the proper moment is complicated for some folks. We need to positively reinforce these folks to Everquest a better experience for all.

The only real difference is the feeling of being rushed and mobilizing faster which requires more "effort" but certainly doesn't mean that no competition at all = completely effortless and free pixels. Even if that were true, which it isn't, aftermath gets more free pixels than anybody when they batphone shit and kill it at 5 am with no competition at all so don't try to play that garbage theory bro

the best part is CSG and Rustle are giving A/A more competition than they do each other anymore because A/A couldn't come to an agreement to not petitionquest each other and not cheat on FTE races. You guys are pathetic at best
Actually, CSG and rustle aren't currently giving anyone any competition... at least not in ToV. If A/A cheated FTE races then those competing CSG and rustle players would be petitioning it... 5AM EST is what time in Euro land? Are you suggesting that a group of guilds who can get 100+ to a raid cant get 30 people over the course of an hour, during their almost prime time hours?

What you're speaking of is the 1 hour lock out mechanic. Once you "race" for FTE and secure it you don't have to compete on the pulls. I would LOVE for them to bring back the instant FTE rules, so many people who left due to these stupid 1 hour lock outs would come back. Not to mention how much harder it would be to instant pull with the new leashing mechanics.

Its been shown that if you give any guild, even guilds like FoH days to kill something it will get killed. The problem is that even on live you never had days to kill something. Velious in era was a race and 90%+ of servers where people "remember" a rotation happened during Luclin or later.

meh cant take your posts seriously [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] multi paragraph diatribe and completely avoided the main point of the whole "free pixels" thing but anyways 5 am est is like 11am-1pm for most of europe which is not even close to prime time

aftermath needs a new designated forum cheerleadercuck to white-knight them anytime anything even remotely negative is said about their guild that can actually makes sense

Without any form of competition, ie a rotation, those pixels are free. They require no effort except to show up, and beating the actual monsters in Everquest was NEVER the challenge you seem to think it was. The hardest part 18 years ago was finding the monsters up in order to kill them. I remember multiple nights where there were 4 guilds waiting for Aary to spawn in ToV on Xev for example. When wiping means that you just have to rez up and get ready to try again, its pointless.

Does that help? it is the same thing i have said multiple times but you clearly just lack the comprehension to understand it. The only thing that makes raiding a challenge is competing with other players.

The moment you implement a rotation you will have the top guilds all split because you no longer need a roster that can field 30-60 people at the drop of a hat. You will have an extra long rotation that would see the actual population average drop because why play 4 weeks a month when you only need to play 1 week ever 2 months. If that doesn't happen then you will have the current guilds who team up asking for their own spots in the rotation as well, as we have seen from CSG in the past.
