Yet people still pay to play there.

I really don't think EverQuest requires a human being sitting there with their finger on the dial 24/7 looking for someone to hem up for wrong think.
Yes the guy named "Wakanda" who just created an account in Feb 2024 to post about how the staff over-police the server is some innocent dude who just stumbled on P99 lol.

More likely he's been banned multiple times for griefing people. The server is policed so we can all enjoy the game without BS. When I was CSR on Live players like you were always my most disliked..."hey I just trained intentionally trained this group that was just trying to get some casual EXP and caused them to lose all their progress from this evening, what's the big deal?" Used to love banning people like you.

That's called killing the messenger.

No one got banned for training anyone in 1999. I used to be a guide as well, and unless we actually witnessed someone training, nothing happened to them. It's like we had the powers to ban players anyways. All we could do was escalate the ticket to a GM and hope that they did something about it, but in most situations like this, the GM would actually scold me for wasting their time and tell me to only send them tickets that involved bugs or glitches.

It also cracks me up when people claim to be have been paid CSR for EverQuest in 1999 while not realizing that this was before remote work, and that there was only one place in the entire world you could live to be a paid CSR for EverQuest (do you know where this was? Your post history suggests you aren't from that area). Pretty sure if you were a real GM 20 something years ago you would just tell people.

As for your other accusations against a complete stranger, false. I made this account because I saw a person on YouTube (EverQuest Solo) making all kinds of videos about how Blue is super fun to play on right now because you can solo a lot of the content since there isn't that many players around. Since I didn't have a character on blue, and was going to be starting over fresh, I didn't wait for a GM to respond to my request for a password change since I don't remember the login to my old account, and simply made this account instead. This has been my story consistently because it's the truth.

I've never even been in trouble on P99 or even had a fight with another player. I've witnessed some fights in OOC before, and remember someone threatening to assault another player on the P99 Discord once, but I've literally never even made it to level 60 on P99 before and doubt I ever will. I just find it bizarre how when I play on TLP, intentional KSing, camp sniping, training, raging etc. are all fairly allowed. I do know a Cleric on Mischief who would get temp bans of like 24 hours, 48 hours etc. and it always blew my mind because he was the nicest dude ever, but apparently someone would steal his pulls so he would get mad and train them. I wouldn't even know he was doing this because he was boxing like 5 characters at once and I was just confused when he told me a GM just messaged him to let him know he's getting banned again because I hadn't seen him move an inch.

My character on Mischief is Wakanda Forever btw. Black Vah Shir Beast Lord [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] I couldn't think of anything else at the time.

I did meet someone on Blue recently who told us all he designed all of the zones in EverQuest, and I thought it was really cool at first. And then I realized he's only 35 years old and I just don't believe his story anymore. Like how could someone who was only like 14 years old when the game was be developed create the zones?? I didn't point this out to them though because I didn't want the drama.

That guy really must have zero respect for you to think you'd buy that story.

Firstly, CSR can mean Guide you know that right? In any case, to address this other point, that's not 100% correct. The game launched without any specific rules or policies because no one had any clue what was needed given the groundbreaking nature of the game. So what you had happening was each server basically had its own rules depending on who was the head GM for that server. Each GM had their own opinions on what was punishable conduct and on some servers training was absolutely punished; on others it wasn't punished at all, even if done intentionally. Brad and others eventually realized the need for consistent policies/rules so that players could know what to expect on every server in the game. So the first of those rules were implemented later in 1999 and people were definitely banned for violating them. There were things you could do to be banned outright (not many, but a couple) and then for the rest it was multiple warnings = account suspension, multiple issues post-suspension = account ban.

They are "allowed" on TLP because the company that owns it barely has any money and is just trying to squeeze every cent out of EQ that it can. They don't want to spend money on things like extensive CSR staff to enforce rules like that.

Yeah guessing you're totally not one of the negative people from the old DMO guild on Green. Sure.

I do know that some former devs have played on P99 at one point. But yeah obviously if there were other details that didn't line up...

There was that psychopath that wrote 10,000 word Roleplay stories about the raid scene and made music recordings about Braknar taking away his Wu'Tang surname

The same dude on his bard would twist a song and each time he twisted it had a line of lyrics put into group chat. It was awful.
