Being a casual player on both red and blue, people do have a very skewed opinion of red.

Leveling up on red is not only extremely fast but it is also more enjoyable.

On red, you will pretty much group with anybody. People will quote this and say shit like "yeah good luck finding anybody dead server lul" but the thing is people will basically always switch to an alt for the opportunity to join a group because of the exp bonus. I don't remember ever having a problem finding at least a workable trio. Even if it's not optimal at all, it doesn't matter. Still extremely fast exp and it's fun seeing some goon squad group that you wouldn't see on blue because of 'muh efficiency'

PvP? I've yet to see it be a real problem (granted, my highest character is low 50's). I've ran into a couple pvper's but only died once. And wow, he got 10 platinum and it took me 5 minutes to get to my corpse. Meanwhile, in 6 hours I leveled from 30 to 40 in a non-twinked casual group.

No economy? Who cares, less time sitting around EC and people will just give away old stuff.

People also talk shit on the raid scene of red, but is it really that much worse than blue? This is a genuine question since I haven't raided on either.

Now I'm not going to pretend Red is some sort of perfect universe and everyone and their mother should feel bad for not participating. It's definitely a drag that you could run through every zone on Antonica and find maybe 5 people. Sure, I'd much prefer pvp teams. Sure, pvp in EQ in general is lame 90% of the time.

Why is this Red bully coming onto our forums and making fun of our PvE progression?

I'm not. I joined rustle a few months ago and never raided with them. I stopped playing again after that. This is the second time today a forum nerd has tried to trigger me about this so I'm guessing they are dead.

People joining red doesn't upset me. I am happy for anyone having fun playing on p99. You guys come over here with your shitpost and propaganda and then take it so personally when we want shit post and propaganda against u.

It's just forum fun, learn the difference.

Are you really a new June '17 player and not another anon forum acct?

If you really looked at my post history as you implied earlier I bet you can figure it out.

But I bet you lied about that too.

Things that are not a lie: everything I said; including I'm new. Including red isnt as bad as it is made out to be.


Unless you think I'm long conning you on thread I didn't start and one you posted on of your own volition.

But I'm as real as it gets.

You would be correct. I played live from 1999 to 2002. Quit after Legacy of Ykesha.

Finally took time to install this EMU and try it out.

On live, I was on the Fennin Ro server, the original home for the guild, TMO (The Mystical Order). While I was never part of or associated with TMO people, I was aware of one thing, how they literally had a choke hold on every boss mob for the current expansion. My guild was never able to see end game content for the current expansion. We were always stuck seeing monsters from 1 or 2 expansions behind the current active one.

When I came to P99 and logged into blue for a few levels, I quickly realized the experience was going to mirror my time on live. This was not attractive to me so I went to red. I've seen more content during my 4 months on red than I was ALLOWED to see on the live servers.

Do I PvP? Only in self defense, which is rare. Outside of that, I don't get harassed often. To me, PvP is a fair way to handle a dispute with other players in a manner akin to true roleplaying games such as D&D.

Frederic: So you're sure you want to leave? Where you going to go?
The Kid: To see what the rest of the wasteland looks like.
Frederic: Well there's not much to see there, kid.
The Kid: I know.

blue players are just different kind of gamers more about collecting and socializing than competing or dominating
i can respect the pace they prefer to play the game at honestly and can see why red doesnt appeal to them

That's a pretty broad stroke.

I personally have done nothing but pvp on MMOs since I started on RZ, then SZ, then Zek.

I carried on with PVP gaming MMOs with WOW, eq2, WAR, and SWTOR.

The reason Red is't appealing is because it has no population. Any PVPer knows, without a population there's no PVP.

If I am going to a server for PVE, the population is the most important factor for me, just as it is for PVP.

Seeing the PVP server is quite honestly underpopulated, I am left with no option but to go to Blue P99 for PVE if I want to play Everquest Classic.
