EverQuest Players Planning Protest For PvP Progression Servers
EverQuest players are mad and they're not going to take it any more. Specifically, we're talking about players on the Progression (a.k.a. "Classic") EverQuest servers. Even more specifically, we're talking about players on the Progression EverQuest servers who want an official PvP server; none of the newer servers have adopted that rule set and the last content update for Project 1999 was in 2015. And they're mad enough to stage a protest later this month to show Darkpaw Games their desire for a server catering to their needs.
Several PvP-focused communities have come together over Reddit to stage a protest on the Zek live server on Feb. 29 starting at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. They plan to flood the server with level one ogres, in the attempt, we'd suppose, to cause chaos and maybe a little bit of a server slowdown. Think of it as like any protest, clogging up the streets and making it harder for you to get to work -- or in this case, to your quest-givers.
Can such an effort yield results? I'm leaning toward the "no" side, if only because the number of people who want open PvP in MMORPGs is generally a very small niche, usually much less than they think it is. That said, I looked up World of Warcraft Classic servers and was surprised to see that about 3/4 of them were PvP. So maybe there's a higher likelihood of "Classic" players wanting PvP servers, if only because they were more common back in the early days of MMOs. I'm glad we moved past that, but I can understand how it might be a "truer" nostalgia experience, for those who desire it.
