Default Here's the real problem

Most people who play this game is older not younger. They have kids and/or real lives. Playing on Green or Teal was nice because while it was a little crowded is was not overcrowded. So, the real problem is the casual player who wanted to have fun could have fun and not have to wait an ungodly number of hours to go do something in the game. We casual players only have a few hours to play at a time.

Now from what I have seen since the merge you have all these high levels camping crap that is 10-15 levels lower than them and the people who are trying to get these camps or hunt in zones like SK who are legitimate levels for these areas can't. And no, we have real lives and can't pull an all-nighter to wait on some prick who doesn't have any responsibility to log off after 8-10 hours of camping so he can sell for plat or twink his/her alt.

Eq always favored the unemployed/single/unshaven loser was as true 30 years ago as it is today. Just the way the game is designed

It was at this point I decided to no longer be kind to the casuals as they have extreme short term memory. They did this to themselves, unfortunately.

How are you being kept from playing?

You just don't get the top rewards which you don't even need to group and have fun.

So entitled to top rewards with so little time. A whole new kind of try hard casual.

Learn to be a casual, happy player.

And another prick shows up.

You do understand that when you have a limited time frame to play in and every place you can play to get xp is camped...you really can't play. Is that to hard for you to understand?

You're new-ish here so understand the following: this is not new. The admins who run Project1999 have, for the past ten years, virtually always maintained rulesets that favor the high-hours players. For the past decade accepting that reality, for better or worse, has been the price of entry here. My best suggestion is decide for yourself if you can enjoy the game as-is within the existing rules. The sort of changes you seek are unlikely to occur.

I can play 1 hour every two days!

Give me my cloak of flames and amulet of necropotence you pricks!!!


You're like the spoiled girl in Willy Wonka.

Go enjoy your family. Some "neckbeards" get to enjoy this in life instead of having that, you little spaz.

I understand what you are saying. My point was explaining why people were upset with the the merge where the admins did not even give any warning to the player base that this was happening. Things are going to be pretty tight now in a classic timeline that with Kunark nearly a year away from coming on line to give more space to people to play in.
