    VIN DWEE!!! :p:rolleyes::p:rolleyes::p

    OMG! I almost didn't make it past that part. She was one of 'those' players.

    And then I read the rest of it and mostly went, meh.

    Wow spin much? Of course that is what I expected. I am truly amazed that both games are still viable to be honest. She says the player base is growing again and the exact opposite is true and every one knows it. She says they know what players want, but I could provide a long list of missteps they have made that disprove that completely. Nothing is going to change for the better. Sad really and meh.

    So, a New LIVE Server coming.
    Also something "cute" in the collectors edition.

    I got to "The devs know what they're doing" and couldn't go on for laughing.....

    It's both absolutely hilarious and horribly scary at the same time.

    Morbid curiosity made me want to watch it a little but not enough to actually do so. I can tell by the replies already it's pretty much what I would expect it to be.

    Sounds like they plan to just recycle content & nostalgia for the next 10 years of EQ/EQ2 if it gets that much.

    Thank you for posting that. However, IMHO, its just more politician's talk which would be great if I had a garden that needed more natural fertilizer *grins*. However, there is too much there to try to flush down the commode...

    EQ1 MIGHT be getting some old time players back so its numbers MIGHT be going up. I really seriously doubt that for EQ2, though. TBH I think EQ2 is deep in the crapper that they need to pipe air to it!

    "Always do the right thing. That is our motivator that drives everything we do...."

    "We trust the players. We are constantly evaluating the players' thoughts and input...."

    "So, since 2015 , since I came on board, breaking all the rules both games have grown. Our player base is growing. Our revenue is growing...."

    "It's all about player quality of life..."

    "We know what the players want....When you build something and the players hate it....it's heartbreaking....."



    Forgot these nuggets:

    "We are free-to-play, so we need to make sure we’re constantly evolving that notion. And what can we do, where hopefully people want to give us their money. We don’t want to feel like players feel like they have to, or that we always have our hand out."

    "We want to make sure the customers are happy first. "

    I spit coffee all over my monitor and began choking and laughing when I read those statements as well.

    "Always do what our shady investment company tells us. That is our motivator that drives everything we do...."

    "We trust the whales. We are constantly evaluating what the whales are spending on...."

    Changed some of the quotes to how I read them.... I could go on I guess but no use since all on these forums pretty much know what I think... :p

    Edit: Misspelled Whales

    And the official forum goblins are eating it up getting all hyped. These are the people DBG feed off, the people that wants to spend 5000 DBG to upgrade a single ascension spell and they will smile and love doing it over and over and over and over and over.

    Holly learned well from Georgeson. Maybe too well. He stretched the truth. The stuff in this interview is straight up lies.

    Yeah... reading the transcript of the interview I almost asked out loud 'if the numbers are up, why are you soooo rabid about hiding eq2 numbers?'

    Well, Mermut, you strike me as an honest person, so Imma drop a load of keepin it real on ya:

    Longdale likes to mislead customers into buying.

    No, no, no. I'm serious. She likes to lie.

    I'm sure I just shattered your trust in eq2. But take heart, next year it will be different.
