OH. GREAT!

MMORPGs biggest failure is the shitty leveling system. Its absolute rubbish, and im so happy they are trying something new.

I still think UO got it right, but now I'm SO happy to find out EQ has done away with it too!

I went for trailblazer pack, most likely not needed, but well.

Here is a reddit thread which talks about the different packs. Also a good summary of the different packs here
Just to clarify, as far as I am aware EQNext and EQNext Landmark are two different games essentially. One is a MMORPG (Next) and one is a Minecraft like building sim for content to be developed pre EQNext release. That being said the pre order bonuses for EQNext Landmark are not gaurenteed to be carried over to the MMORPG release.

The FAQ states;

Quote:
What is the connection between EverQuest Next Landmark and EverQuest Next?
EverQuest Next Landmark is a world where you can design and make anything you can imagine! Objects and buildings that players construct may be featured in EverQuest Next.
Quote:
Are these items going to transfer between EQN Landmark and EverQuest Next?
The items in the packs are exclusive to Landmark. There are no plans for them to transfer to EverQuest Next.
Quote:
Does buying a Founder's Pack for EQN Landmark get me access to EverQuest Next's beta program?
There are currently no plans for Landmark Founder's Packs to grant access to EverQuest Next's beta program.
Will update the first post to reflect this too.

"He's dead, Jim"

EVERQUEST NEXT CANCELLED


In what has to be one of the lamest letters ever written by a games company, Daybreak's president Russell Shanks lays out the reasons for it's demise.


Quote:
To Our Daybreak Community,

I’m writing today to let you know that, after much review and consideration, Daybreak is discontinuing development of EverQuest Next.

For the past 20 years EverQuest has been a labor of love. What started as a deep passion of ours, as game creators, grew into a much larger passion shared by you, millions of players and Daybreakers alike. Watching EverQuest’s ability to entertain and bring people together has inspired and humbled us. It’s shaped our culture and has emboldened us to take aggressive risks with our game ideas and products. When we decided to create the next chapter in the EverQuest journey, we didn’t aim low. We set out to make something revolutionary.

For those familiar with the internals of game development, you know that cancellations are a reality we must face from time to time. Inherent to the creative process are dreaming big, pushing hard and being brutally honest with where you land. In the case of EverQuest Next, we accomplished incredible feats that astonished industry insiders. Unfortunately, as we put together the pieces, we found that it wasn’t fun. We know you have high standards when it comes to Norrath and we do too. In final review, we had to face the fact that EverQuest Next would not meet the expectations we – and all of you – have for the worlds of Norrath.

The future of the EverQuest franchise as a whole is important to us here at Daybreak. EverQuest in all its forms is near and dear to our hearts. EverQuest and EverQuest II are going strong. Rest assured that our passion to grow the world of EverQuest remains undiminished.

Yours truly,

Russell Shanks

President, Daybreak Games

I have not played much attention to MMOs for the last couple of years, but this surprised me. It looked like a good game.

Shocking news to the last three people playing it, Derpbreak Games kills off EverQuest: Landmark as well. Servers will be switched off Feb 21.
