People just don't seem to care about EQ2 any more. At least from what I've seen. Why? I guess that's what I'm personally undecided about. Is it Vellious? Perhaps the concept of people buying a partial expansion is the issue. Or the fact that SOE hasn't even posted a release date for the expansion which is supposed to go live some time in Feb. EQ2 Flames and the SOE EQ2 Forums seem rather apathetic about the expansion as well. Even a couple of the end game raider people in beta have made verbal comments around me about how they're seriously questioning whether they will even bother buying the expansion. That's a real statement in my book. Is it the age of EQ2? Every year there are newer games that are coming out. So many EQ2 players seem more interested in Rifts than they are about Vellious. There's even more Star Wars: The Old Republic buzz from players than Vellious buzz. While I know that people will be attracted to the newest games released, it just feels like this atmosphere is just so much larger this year than it was in the last couple of years. Even the post counts on the SOE forums from the old regulars have died off in the SF era to a much greater extent than it died during RoK and TSO. It's just kind of strange for me to be seriously questioning my interest in EQ2 after having found a good fitting guild about a month ago for my main. While the guild is vitalized to finish killing as many hard modes as they can on LDL before the expansion hits, the guild also isn't that excited about Vellious either. "It'll be like all of the other EQ2 expansions." That's the most common comment which I've heard, which sounds indifferent in my book. Are other people seeing the same thing that I am?
