  • Regarding the in-game advertisements for Lord of EverQuest..

    Am I the only one who finds Sony's recent in-game advertising campaign to be really annoying, if not outrageous? I mean, it's bad enough that it's already in the MOTD, and you get a little pop-up window at the EQ server select screen every time you log in which practically begs you to accidentally click on the wrong button...

    (For those who don't know -- Sony's lead GMs have been performing system-wide broadcast-advertisements for Lords of EverQuest for the past few days.)

      Yea, I'm not currently playing, but I was when Yekesha came out. Quite annoying. Like when about 500 people accidentally pre-registered for Yekesha trying to log in.

        Found this on eqluclin.com, and which came from graffe's, which in turn came from the concert hall...and so on.

        Open up your eqclient.ini file.
        Find the line which reads "LoEPopUpLastView=1070191038"
        Change it to "LoEPopUpLastView=9970191038"

        Goodbye, popup for a game I have no intention of ever, ever buying.

            I know what to do now when I get back to GA and get back on EQ =).

            I'm kinda glad I'm not on EQ for the time being to see the in game messages..

                Actually, a fair number of people have probably already accidentally bought it. I'd consider it for the EQ2 beta, but I don't like how they say "special phase." "There.. there aren't any graphics." "Yeah, we're testing the text."

                  lol.

                  I would sign up for it, and do the crap needed to get into the "special phase" of the beta, but knowing these guys, that special phase will be 3 weeks before EQ2 retail in 2006. So instead of ditching EQ for FF11, Horizons, AO, etc, I can spend $50 on a game and stay around for the promise of EQ2 beta... maybe... someday.

                  Right.

                    Based on the recent trend of MMORPGs, you never know, EQ2 could come out tomorrow. When Blizzard eventually releases WoW, it will blow people away if this trend keeps up.. Blizzard enjoys finishing their games - as much as an MMORPG could be finished, anyway.

                      Well, yes. Considering it's just SWG in Norrath after 500 years (with a healthy dose of Asheron Call 2's storyline thrown in for flavor) I wouldn't be surprised at all if they moved the launch up a few months. =)

                      Anyone know if FF11 has surpassed EQ yet in subscriptions? Last I heard it was due to hit 420,000 this week or next.

                        Again.. FFXI has a much larger customer base to draw from. Everyone in Asia, plus the small percentage of MMOG fans in the Western Hemisphere. Get me a figure of the accounts over here.

                          FFXI reminds me so much of EQ its not even funny. But i always liked most of EQ. Fortunately FFXI has kept everything i loved about EQ and got rid of most of the things i hated.

                          But thats beside the point and off topic. As for the advertisements, i would think after the uproar people had when they did the ads for LoY, SOE wouldn't be stupid to do it again. But i was wrong, my faith in SOE need to just fade away.

                          The sad thing is before i bought FFXI i was thinking of getting lords of everquest. Then when they announced it was the only way to get into EQ2 beta (at least i think its the only way), on top of the advertisements, i would never buy that game, strickly out of principle. That pissed me off. Everquest is and was a great game, but ever since SOE took over it just seemed to lose its touch in my opinion.

                            'Tis not the only way to get into Beta, just gets you into a 'special' phase of Beta, right before they do the Open Beta (Where anyone who can sign up can get in, for the most part)

                            I'm still never buying LoE on general principles, though

                              The LoE beta was pretty fun. But after logging onto a game I pay to play - and most things I pay for are devoid of advertisements - and being spammed by Lead GM Whoever, I'm not going to. Hopefully, if no one buys it, it will discourage them from spamming their userbase in the future.
