EverQuest players plan to flood a server with ogres to convince devs to bring back classic PvP

This Saturday, hundreds of classic EverQuest players plan on flooding one of the game's servers in protest of the lack of a vintage PvP server. The 21-year-old MMO still has a pretty thriving community, including several servers running older versions, but the game currently has just one official PvP server and it's on modern EverQuest. This means anyone who wants a classic PvP experience needs…

EverQuest rolling back to day one thanks to fan server Project 1999

Twenty years of EverQuest, blimey! I'd have been four years old when that came out, too young to experience the harsh and clunky fantasy world that made World of Warcraft a shocking breeze when it hit. A fresh-faced baby, free from worrying about losing all my boar teeth and experience points on death. EverQuest is still kicking about, two decades of updates and expansions on.…

EverQuest And Vanguard Creator Announces Pantheon

Have you been looking for an MMO to round out the less massive, woefully lonely aspects of your life? And not just any MMO, but The MMO, one that can be summed up using a checklist of vague yet overwhelmingly familiar elements? Well then, have I got a game for you (to Kickstart, naturally).

Foreverquest: EverQuest Will Never Stop Expanding

I remember when I first played Everquest. I was younger then - naive, optimistic, and completely unable to grasp the concept that a PVP server meant idly tapping the attack button around other people could cause an international incident. Still though, it was my first MMO, and what a magical experience it was. I'll never forget my first death by Sand Giant or related, nearly naked…

SOE Reveals Steam-Workshop-Ish ‘Player Studio’

MMOs are pretty much about two things: breaking and taking. Kill ten things, take six things, etc, etc, etc. Monsters, boar gizzards, fish, barrels - nothing is safe. But all that destruction can get a bit exhausting at times. I mean, who hasn't met an Orc, ogre, or space marine who just wanted to paint? So now SOE's letting players balance out their wanton destruction with…
