Krieghund: Hassan Ben Sobr: No Pandaria jokes?

That's probably the reason subby mentioned EQ in the headline and not WoW.

So you gotta stick with cat-men, rat-men, and frog-men jokes, sorry.


That's exactly what I came here to say.

Article: Picture of World Of Warcraft, a paying sponsor.
Headline: Everquest, a non-paying sponsor.

Whaddya bet Subby's headline was edited by admins so as to not piss off the people who buy and sell Fark to us?

Mike_LowELL: Elzar: People still play these games?

They used to. Now they just buy the gold and experience necessary to advance. Somehow, it hasn't dawned on these people that if you're using money to skip significant amounts of the game content, you should probably go find a better game to play.


Do you mind? When Mike_LowELL turns up on my fark pages in raging green, I expect high quality trolling. Not this grandmotherly advice.

Smarten your game, sir.

Alexei Novikov: ProfessorOhki: Contents Under Pressure: Pocket_Fisherman: I now feel a little bad for killing the gold farmers in games I've played. I might have caused someone to be beaten with plastic pipes :(

I'm surprised any of them are on a pvp server.

Risk v. reward. The guys on PVE servers don't have the same push to one-up the other players, so they're less likely to buy gold and for less money. On the other hand, There WILL be players on any PVP server that make farmer-hunting a hobby.

It's even more fun to find ways to get farmers and bots killed on PvE servers, since you can't just do it yourself. Good times.


That was part of what made EQ great, you could the kill bots on a PvE server. Spend enough time pulling an area and you learned alll the NPC tracks, also stuff would follow you forever.

Subby, on EQ the common coin for playering deal with was plat not gold.

As for people saying EQ is dead well all things considered it just released a 19th expansion like 15ish days ago. Not bad for a MMO that came out 13 and a half years ago.

High quality trolling requires a serious post from time to time. A base of operations, if you will. Go get 'em, Mike_LowELL!

Thread over in two.

No idea why anyone else bothered posting after that.

Well, I do take your point. But at the same time, it's rather like being urinated on by your unpleasant uncle, when you were expecting your sexy sexy aunt to turn up. I am still disappoint.
