DBG has announced two new TLPs launching in March to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Everquest. One will be hardcore and another ultra casual. More details to follow.

Producer's Letter: 20 Years of EverQuest

"We are aiming at two new progression servers with two approaches – one hardcore and one ultra-casual. Rules will be coming soon as we sort them out over the coming weeks with both new servers launching around the anniversary on March 16"

Prepare for rollcall, time to repeat classic EQ for the 100th time.

For those interested in playing with me and a lot of the Faceless guys from Vulak/Test/LJ/Agnarr jump in discord. Right now we plan to hit at least one if not both servers.

I hope that "hardcore" does not imply a miserable experience rate and instead means something closer to no boxing, no instancing, no pick zones, old school corpse retrieval, no map, etc. Just strip out a bunch of features and let the wolves set upon each other. For the people not interested in that there will be a carebear alternative. Heck, just the existence of the carebear server is going to keep people clawing at each other on the hardcore server longer than they might otherwise put up with it. No one wants to have their l33t self image shattered.

Depending on rules I expect most to go casual. Within a month the hardcore server will have one guild which will be doomed due to lack of recruitment, unless the rules are also very fun.

If the "Michael Jordans" of EQ come out of the woodwork our crew will make a guild 100%. We're only interested in competing head to head against the best of the best and this timing would be perfect. Praying for FV ruleset personally and hopefully this will be more like EQ used to be than this watered down version on TLP's.

If they don't allow boxing then thank but no thanks.
I'm not going back to the times of playing a single char, ever.

If one of the servers is FV loot rules and combine/sleeper unlocks with AoCs? That might be exciting.

This is what i've been advocating for EQ (and Pantheon) forever. IF this hardcore server brings back the mechanics from yesteryear. Corpse runs, no maps, lose level if you die too much, all that.

If its hardcore only because the xp rate is bad, then who the hell cares.

Really corpse runs are the most integral part of this. We will see.

there'll be boxing. dude theres people boxing 30 accounts on coirnav, warping and all sorts of shit. was a huge video of ex relentless insomnia chars botting in sirens and chardok and those chars didnt get banned. its gonna be "hardcore" wild wild west if you ask me. maybe they crack down on launch but after that itll be hilarious. its not even mq2, theres the everquestbot.com now lol
