    I already said on this on the official forums, but more ppl are going to be on one wow classic server than everyone who plays this game.

    Assuming an avg of four alts/acct, 7k feels about right. If that's the case, they're likely still making money. All depends on shop sales though.

    Yay for the icoming level increases.

    I really don't understand why people continue to buy from this company, but welp, to each their own.

    I think people support the game, not the people behind the game. EQ2 has made a lot of memories for people and its often hard to let it go and look for other options.

    I'd be one of those people if my guild hadn't withered away and my raid crew disbanded. Honestly, I'm a lot happier not having to deal with this game and Daybreak's antics.

    I agree and I know that every one's pain threshold is different. Even though I have played very little if at all, I kept EQ2 loaded on my computer up until recently when I realized that I was truly done and I finally removed it.

    I hung on much longer than I would have with any other game and that says a lot about EQ2. Ultimately though, memories, friendships, and overall nostalgia weren't enough to mask the many problems with the game and the lack of appreciation by DBG for their paying customers.

    I feel good about moving on, because even though EQ2 still exists, it is long past thriving and that isn't going to change. Some times we just have to accept the inevitable, no matter how painful that might be.

    So apparently someone has written a bot which has been crawling EQ2U since October 2019, so results are not usable anymore.

    Code:

    2019-10: 129180
    2019-11: 475270

    Can you block the bot, Feldon?

    I'm not currently logging IP addreses and other info that would be necessary to do this.

    What about Cloudflare's rate limiting?

    I would love to see some numbers now that Luclin is over and done, but if the bots still crawling around thats unfortunate.

    Considering the crisis you are going through, this is incredibly generous. Thank you! I'm in a decent financial shape compared to a lot, and the donations I get make it possible to keep working on EQ2U.
