eq is a business therefor needs $$ to operate,but i feel their goin bout it the wrong way.The challenge is to make players want to be gold & heres how: at 1 time exp in eq was so slow that it took a year to lvl from 1-50 so why not bring that back but even slower for f2p accts & 1% faster exp for silver & this goes for AA's as well,that would make players want to be gold right there then eq could drop this ridiculous 'prestige' deal on items.another idea is the 'plat' cap for f2p/silver accts,why not sell ability in SC to unlock plat caps,'gold' isnt the only way to make $$,make good use of the SC cause right now its junk cause it sells junk.How about an AA reset sold in SC,players have no control when devs decide to 'nerf' aa's making expensive AA now useless,why shouldnt the player have an opportunity to have those wasted aa back? while giving the SC a useful commodity .saving the best for last,eq needs something to bring new players in & to make players want to log on & that would be 3x a day a player could join an instance solo or within a grp & be placed randomly on a 24 man team to play capture the flag vs another 24 man team,of course 1st come 1st to have advantage,it could sometimes be an odd # vs another odd # till more joined or zones in & the purpose of this game is for players to get to see other players in action & this can include cross server fights,once ya join instance you could be parred up with those on other servers making for 1 insane PvP battle & the reward would be pts,at the end of the game say too 500 with kills giving a pt each & capturing a flag giving a pt every 5sec while captured players could earn a total of pts win or lose pending on there actions in game like killin another player,healing friendlies,capturing pts,defending pts with a bonus if ya won the game.with these pts gained there would be a npc that sold weps,armor,augs,mounts,exp pots,etc. you could even design a once a day server vs server using same pts system but different npc since that would be a much tuffer game.this would make players want to log on 4x a day at least if they been away bored of the daily grind,also all players f2p-gol;d should be able to participate but maybe make the vendor 'gold' only?I just feel EQ is constantly tryn to get new business but goin bout it the wrong way,there either introducing crap or forcing players to pay 15$ for a game with super old graphics,many bugs & all old zones are now usless with the introduction to defient+ so its not like theres a ton of content,players stick to hotzones 'which drastically need a change' leaving most zones empty,what ideas do you have??????

Just like your post on EQ Forums, I refuse to read a large block of text without much in the way of punctuation, spacing, capitalization, paragraphing, etc.

Yther Ore.

If they make the game take as long to lvl from 1 to 50 as it did at launch it would just turn f2p people away from the game alltogether. Would take years to reach max lvl for a new player and would make F2p pretty much useless.

The only thing I agree with you on is that the F2P/Silver unlockers could be upgraded to allow for more aas,plat limits, etc (as they are currently a bit low and possible to reach the cap in a matter of a week or two, with help from an established player)..

This would allow some of the recently returned players to delay whether or not they want to take the decision to stick it out and go gold. The whole F2P system seems to be designed to entice mainly former players to reactivate their accounts..leading to them going gold after having been "hooked" on the game

Your point about cross server PVP battles/instances wouldn't really apply much to EQ because there is only one PVP server and it has amongst the lowest (though dedicated) populations. The vast majority rather PVE..and the numbers support this principle.

Some people (myself included) love the old zones and purposely keep alts at lower levels for years...... to enjoy the content.Defiant gear or no defiant..It doesnt really matter to me.

If your bored of the regular PVE servers, you could try the PVP server (ZEK) as it may be more to your playstyle than reg PVE servers.

Good luck.

I can't read that but something tells me since I don't see any punctuation it's probably not an idea that is well thought out.

Same as the other replies. I started to read this post and then thought to myself: "Why are you putting yourself through this? If this person cannot be bothered to use punctuation or sentences, why should you be bothered to sort through their heap of thought-garbage?"

I know the engine for EQ is wicked old, but a graphics update would rock. It is apparent that EQ is not dead. Players returnall the time but they return to the same looking toons and models. Why not upgrade the player models to something like Tera. Clean awesome looking toons that do not get boring to look at. I think it would bring back more players too.
