P1999 is excellent, though, and it's been around a long time so you can "commit" to it to the extent that anybody commits to playing a game.
I played there for several months a while back (years ago now) and had a great time and I definitely felt I was reliving my original experience from 1999-2001. Yeah, it's true, though, P99 is a real eye-opener in terms of reminding players how challenging and difficult the original game was. These days I tell other players, especially relative newcomers, whenever they complain about some "challenge" in the game that they have no clue what a real "challenge" is. Many can't believe that there was a time where if you died in a difficult place you might never get your corpse back and consequently lose all your gear permanently.
"It's not Classic really"... well, it would require a time machine to play "Classic really." Frankly, a lot of the Classic experience was because we were all experiencing it for the FIRST time and the truth is "you can never go home again." But P1999 is far better a simulation of Classic EQ than any of the official TLP servers. And I've played on several of those, and enjoyed the experience, but they are REALLY "not Classic really." Not even close compared to P99.
