seemingly simple changes can be very complex due to the way EQEMU works, I really just wish the devs would post more about debugging

Yeah, I'm sure being a volunteer GM for years with nothing but lots of (alleged) RMT cash coming in gets boring. The level of autism at raiding levels is enough for anyone to see server upkeep as a chore not worth the time. When the server finally dies, it will be because of all the shitty drug-addicted shut-ins who have slowly bled the souls of support staff to come to hate the project and its player base. The GMs should have had a zero asshole tolerance from day 1 and just banned the horrible players outright. Instead they became friends with the players, choosing favorites and allowing the shitty behavior to fester until we're left with this.

All the problems of p99 could easily be resolved with enforced rotations or instancing, who knows how many thousands of players quit due to the "competitive" philosophy of the server. I'd say maybe 10% of raiders are actually into the hours of competitive wall staring and botted racing, the remaining 90% of people with some semblance of life outside the game would love to actually be able to schedule raiding around real life responsibilities.

everquest is a difficult game to optimize for because the code base was written in code that isn't easy for developers to look at add and subtract from. the time when blue was added into multiple hotkeys was written in and not documented fully, so the devs that went in and edited the code base and pushed to prod were really making it worse for future versions and servers. the amount of multiple tables the data base of code has to go through for a simple hotkey is outstanding, and the volume of requests that are send per account is pretty immense to the server. while the server may cost 600 dollar, all the donation just end up in the pocket of rogean and nilbog. while they probably deserve it for recreating the emulation experience of games we all enjoy, and love, it's funny that they dont just spend 10 bucks a month to hire some retarded community manager and a few staff to manage the forums, removing teal trading forums, and minor bs updates that would take 5 seconds and don't need apporval. but instead they spend their days buying coke and rums from a chinese drink cart every other night because rogean and nilbog both renounces their citizenship and moved to singapore. It's kind of crazy to think about how just evading a nations laws are so simplifed by just vowing some things and moving. the problem with the code base to not get on a tangent, is that there are millions and millions of lines of code, and if the associated tables arent aligned, then atomic alignment can't really happen even if you onboard new devs to the project. I think a lot of people on this website are correct in that the amount of people that are playing, vs the amount of rmt is outweighing the server admins/owners to really give a fuck. we're basically all supporting an early access game that ends up not delivering because the people that take on these giant projects become ghosts to community engagement.
